A beautiful sunlight-drenched two-bedroom house with fabulous garden courtyard, offering alfresco dining and lounging, in the heart of St Kilda.
This spacious, airy house comes complete with sun-drenched courtyards making it perfect for entertaining, enjoying outdoor meals, or just lounging under the passion fruit vines.
Take a short stroll to the end of peaceful Fawkner Street, and find yourself facing Luna Park on St Kilda's famous Acland St, fully immersed in the cafe culture and lifestyle synonymous with one of Melbourne's most treasured suburbs. Keep walking another minute or two, past the delectable pastry shops, fashion retailers, restaurants, bars and cafes, and find yourself on St Kilda beach. From here, enjoy a drink at any of the bustling foreshore bars and enjoy the spectacular view, take a dip in the bay, or a walk, run or bike ride along the foreshore path - running in one direction to Port Melbourne, and the other direction to Elwood and Brighton beaches.
If you're looking for a fantastic stay in Melbourne, look no further.
The house itself is charming and bustling with period detail. Two double bedrooms, each with queen sized beds sit beside a spacious main bathroom with laundry facilities.
Both the airy living room and spacious kitchen/dining room open onto a sunny courtyard that wraps around the house, allowing you to bring the outside in.
Outside you will find a luxurious outdoor couch nestled amongst the leafy courtyard garden, an outdoor dining table, BBQ, washing line and fire pit. Herbs are also growing in the garden which guests can help themselves to.
Finally, off-street parking for one car, and tram lines running into the CBD (96 and 16 trams) stopping at the end of the street makes this house highly accessible.
We also have the following:
- A large kitchen/dining area: extendable kitchen table seats up to 10

Interaction with guests

Pets are not permitted.
Smoking is permitted outside - please supply your own ash tray and kindly ensure all butts are appropriately disposed of.
Finally, Fawkner St is a lovely residential area and we have some great neighbours. In general they're ok with a bit of noise and music, but we do expect guests to be respectful and ensure noise is minimised between the hours of 10pm and 8am.
Originally from Sydney, I've been living in the St Kilda area with my partner Alex for years now and we love it.
We're both active; love going for runs, bike rides, and playing beach volleyball (one of the reasons we chose to live in St Kilda - the beach, the bay and Albert Park are all on our doorstep along with fantastic running and bike tracks through spectacular scenery).
We both also enjoy a tipple at the end of the day, or on a sunny weekend afternoon - again St Kilda is the perfect location to accommodate this, with loads of Melbourne's best bars and cafes literally at our doorstep.
Beyond the golden shores of St Kilda, we love skiing and travelling. So when we're off doing those things, we're excited to be able to welcome others into our house to experience wonderful St Kilda like a local.
