Melbourne Penthouse

8 guests · 4 bedrooms · 4.5 baths
Sculpture and stone gild the open spaces of this penthouse perched above Melbourne’s Parkville area. Laid out over the top 2 floors of the Arcadia building, this apartment boasts views indoors and out, thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows and colorful artwork, and at night, its expanses of marble change under mood lighting. It’s less than 10 minutes to Queen Victoria market and museums. 
Your holiday at the penthouse begins with an airport transfer for up to 6 people. Once settled in, take in city skyline panoramas from a private balcony with a gas barbecue and alfresco dining for 8. Pour a glass of an Australian vintage from the wine fridge to sip while watching the smart TV or browsing over Wi-Fi, or host a family movie night in a media room with a projector and screen. 
Designed by local firm Fender Katsalidis Architects, the curving building has a contemporary look, and this luxury apartment plays into that with an open-concept great room clad in polished finishes. A wood panel separates the living area from a dining table for 8, and a breakfast bar sits at the entrance to a fully equipped, marble-splashed kitchen. 
There are 3 bedrooms with king beds at this vacation rental: 2 with ensuite bathrooms, including a master bedroom with honeymoon-suite-worthy details like wall-to-wall city views and a jetted tub, and 1 with access to a hall bathroom. There’s also 1 bedroom with a queen bed and ensuite bathroom. 
Grab a coffee from one of the city’s famously great spots and set off for the 1-minute walk to the Royal Park Golf Course or the 8-minute trip on foot to the park-like Melbourne Zoo. By car, it’s less than 10 minutes to must-sees like the Melbourne Museum and Carlton Gardens, Queen Victoria Market, and the Immigration Museum.
If you plan to ring in the new year, a nice touch to your trip will be the opportunity to marvel over the city's fireworks display, from the home.
