Welcome- I'll advise you and help on all things Melbourne- shopping, attractions, Melbourne lane way restaurants, how to get where and what to do! Ask and I'll help.

The space

Hi there, I'm Joe Mottola.
I have 4 apartments in this building. Each sleeps 2 people. Each apartment totally separate, each with a queen bedroom the large studio "Carlisle" a double bed.

I'm happy to add the third person in this apartment on a mattress on the lounge floor if that suits you, provide all the linen etc. Fee is $60 per night added to the price.

I will personally greet you on your arrival and give you a familiarization tour.

This contemporary one bedroom apartment is situated on the 1st floor of the stunning "The Face" building. You will also have access to your own private rooftop (bookings only). Without doubt, St. Kilda’s most spectacular rooftop with panoramic views.

Located 6km from the city center, St Kilda is Melbourne’s seaside playground and is much-loved by residents and visitors alike. St Kilda is renowned for its expansive view of Port Phillip, safe sandy beach, palm-lined boardwalk, huge range of beach activities, big skies, gorgeous sunsets, lovely park and gardens, great restaurants, bars and cafés, fabulous old buildings, and its colorful past and present.

All year round St Kilda is the place to head for fantastic things to see and do and great times to be had. With our great places to eat and drink and our wonderful sea air, everything tastes so much better in St Kilda – so come out and join us! My only simple prerequisite is that you leave the apartment spotless. My prices are fantastic in the hope that I have little cleaning to do and you look after my gorgeous apartment like it was your own. If you're ok with that then we'll get on famously.

Step into this well appointed apartment and feel at home with a 40" plasma, iPod docking station and split system heating/cooling. A fully equipped timber veneer kitchen with Caesar stone bench tops and outfitted with Miele appliances with all cooking utensils and crockery provided.

Deluxe bedroom with very comfortable pillow top queen size bed fitted with luxury linen. It has a sparkling tiled bathroom with European laundry.

Stunning views from the balcony with double glazed glass doors.

Secure video-com entry, lift access and secure basement parking. If required, parking is available at $25 for 4 nights. For 5 nights and over, parking is $7 per night. This can be paid in cash on arrival. Please note: This carpark is a stacker, car size restrictions apply -- Height 1.5M, Width 2.0M, Length 4.9M -- this precludes many SUVs, sorry. Should you require parking please let me know in advance.

Nestled amongst Acland street's vibrant shopping & cafe precinct.
Minutes to the St. Kilda Beach, Luna Park, Palais Theater and city bound trams. Esplanade Market at your door step! It doesn't get better for a brilliant, fun stay!

Fee for car park is $25 for the entire period. The car park is suitable for a small or medium sedan- a 4WD won't fit into the space. The clearance is 1.5m for your car. Also check your car antenna before entering the car park, it may be too high and could scrape.

Wi-fi- Local internet cafes offer a cheap rate, and there some hot spots locally that provide free wi-fi. I have a mobile wi-fi connection I can give you, you're welcome to top it up at the Telstra store (10 mins by tram) with the plan you require.

Standard Terms and Conditions of Temporary Holiday Accommodation:

Note: Variances can be agreed on but only by arrangement with the owner in writing.

Please leave the apartment as you found it, respect the apartment like you would your own leaving it neat and tidy.
Particular attention to maintaining the cooktop is in a spotless condition after use. Cleaning spay and soft cloths provided. Rubbish can be disposed towards the back of the downstairs car park.

The owners will make every effort to ensure the property is available as booked. However the owners reserve the right to reallocate you due to unforeseen circumstances to an apartment of equal quality and standard.

To maintain a good standard for our guests we require certain conditions to be complied with. We appreciate most will respect our property but the occasional abuse requires that we state the following conditions.

Number of Guests should not exceed the number stated on the Confirmation Notice or subsequently agreed in writing or email. Fees will apply for excess guests not agreed with the owners in advance.

Parties and Functions are strictly prohibited. The price charged is for domestic use only and not commercial. Accordingly this rate does not allow for the extra wear associated with functions in terms of cleaning, garbage removal, wear and tear, repairs etc. Use contrary to this may result in additional payments.

It's an important pre-requisite that no guests other than the two of you are in the apartment. These are residential buildings and neighbors will complain when there are people coming and going. It's a fine balance so please let me make it clear that any form of gathering will result in instant cancellation of your booking. The building has a zero tolerance with this and it well monitored.

Damage, Breakages, Theft and Loss are the tenants responsibility during their stay.

Departure - the property should be left in a similar state to its condition on arrival. Check-out time is 10am by the latest, to allow time to prepare property for next guests unless you confirm otherwise.

Disturbance to our neighbors, including excessive noise, is prohibited and will result in instant termination. Noise will not be tolerated under ANY circumstances.

Pets are not allowed unless specific arrangements have been made in writing with the owner.

Loss - the owners take no responsibility for the tenant's personal property.

Variations to these conditions may only be made by prior arrangements with the owner in writing.

Please call me with an hour or so of arrival so I can arrange to meet you and show you around.

Kind Regards,

Joe Mottola

Joe's flat was above and beyond anything I could have expected! There was more amenities and useful items than listed, the neighbourhood was perfect (in the middle of st Kilda and right near the beach) and the best part was Joe himself! Had me in tears of happiness the first time we met (quite literally) was always there to help me and when a club lost my coat with my keys he was so kind and responsive with sorting everything out for me! I will never have enough praise for the apartment and for Joe himself, he could easily add so much to the cost of the place but it's a testament to how lovely he is that he doesn't. The best place I have EVER stayed in, the best guy anyone could meet and if he'll have me- I will be back in the oz summer and will stay here again. Until then Joe! Xxx
