Oozing style and sophistication this 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom modern apartment located in stunning "ID apartments" Port Melbourne is for the discerning traveller wanting to capture that Urban Melbourne feel.

This trendy apartment is perfect for a family, couples or business travellers visiting Melbourne to work or play.

You have access to a gym, lap pool as well as secure under cover parking for 1 car. Only 250m walk to the beach and we don’t ask you to leave your other best friend at home as we welcome small dogs to join you. Why wouldn’t we with the beach, walking tracks and multitude of parks in the area?

The Apartment building underwent a massive redevelopment to preserve the heritage facade of the building from the 1800’s when it was an old brewery. Hidden behind this facade is a hidden oasis with a unique design that is thoroughly modern. Balinese style gardens create that relaxing away from it all feel. Peace and serenity as you do laps of the Communal pool or work out in the fully equipped gym. Please note Children are not allowed in the gym.

A bit about Port Melbourne

The suburb is bordered by the shores of Hobsons Bay and the lower reaches of the Yarra River. Open parklands, bayside beaches, exclusive apartments and Bay Street's restaurants and cafes. The suburb also forms a major transport link from east to west, home to one end of the West Gate Bridge. Port Melbourne has undergone a major demographic shift in the past twenty years, from one of the cheapest and poorest suburbs in the City to one of the wealthiest. Many large apartment developments in Port Melbourne occupy large blocks of land, taking over large factories and warehouses such as the Urban Sea Drift Apartment development.

Beacon Cove and Station Pier

Bring your designer gear and stroll (or jog) down the palm-lined path that hugs runs along the foreshore. Deviate past architect-designed houses and the high-rise apartment blocks overlooking Port Phillip Bay. Rehydrate in Beach Street's cafes, dress up for beachfront sunset drinks, or dip your toes in the water.

Back in Bay Street

Step back from the beach to Bay Street. Quality coffee and the best French provisions at Noisette. Shop up a storm at Bay Street's swanky boutiques and absorb a spot of culture at MARS Gallery. The plethora of bars will set you up with frothy beers (boutique, naturally) and top-notch pub grub.

The kitchen is fully stocked with pot, pans and dishes. Which cooking dishes were you after and I can certainly purchase those also? Appreciate you taking the time to share your experience of your stay and I hope we see you again. Kind Regards Lisa

Fabulous convenient and well-sort after location in a luxury secure quiet apartment

  • 4 of 5

Spacious apartment has everything you need to make you feel like a home away from home - loved being able to open sliding doors to private patio and subtropical gardens. Nice being able to lap swim in the 25m pool. Very quiet but amazing location so close to beach, gasworks, Bay Street shops and Station pier/public transport. Undercover secure carpark onsite a bonus. Hope to be back again soon.

Perfect weekend stay in great location

  • 5 of 5

Booking process was easy, they met us on time and apartment was exactly as described and shown in photos.. very comfortable, spacious and easy 2 block walk in either direction to beach/parks/restaurants/cafes. They even met us back there a couple of hours after leaving when my friend thought she had left something behind.

Great stay with the pooch

  • 4 of 5

Great location and very good facilities. Secure parking is ideal. For a large unit complex we hardly heard another voice during our three night stay.
