We were greeted by Michael - at the designated time (which is so helpful when arriving after a very long trip from the US). He was very personable & informative concerning the apartment & questions that we had about Melbourne. Prior to our trip to Melbourne, Lisa with Rejuvenate Stays, kept us very informed and made our arrival free of stress! As for the apartment - so very spacious, unlike a lot of vacation rentals; modern furniture and great comfortable beds! Also - being on the 5th floor - the elevator was much appreciated! Just stepping out of the entrance of the building - you're immediately in the area of myriads of restaurants & shops! Yes - the saying " Location, location, location! " couldn't be truer! Also - being in the center of activity - the apartment was very quiet - even though there were many restaurants & shops located directly below! Would give 258 Flinders Lane a 6 star rating! Enjoy!
