This stunning, newly renovated stable was originally built in the 1800's and is situated in prime location down a cobblestone laneway off Lygon St. You will literally feel like you're in Europe!

The space

The stable is one of the most unique spaces you will find to stay in Melbourne! In renovating, the goal was to keep as much of the existing building as possible, giving it a rich authentic feel. The original red brick is exposed both on the exterior + interior of the building. The space is small + open but stylish + cozy. Upstairs on a mezzanine floor is the bedroom with a Queensize bed. Downstairs contains a bathroom with toilet + shower, a small kitchen area with a sink, toaster, kettle + fridge but no oven/stovetop.

There is also a sofa, TV, dining table + gas log fire.

There are lots of extra special touches to make your stay as luxurious as possible!

* The Stable is available for photo + film shoots. Send an enquiry for location hire as rates are different to accommodation rates.

Guest access

The Stable is located at the rear end of my property. Guests will have sole access to the stable & shared access to the courtyard with me in the main house. The main house is not accessible to guests.

The stable has independent access via a side door from the laneway or through the shared gate into the courtyard. You may park your car in the courtyard if needed (please let me know when booking if you will have a car).

Interaction with guests

I will always aim to be there to greet you when you arrive however after that I am open to as little or as much interaction as you need. The Stable is very private and it wouldn't be unusual for you to come and go without seeing me! :)

Other things to note

I also have accommodation available in Somers on The Mornington Peninsula if you want to include a getaway down the coast in your stay, you can check it out here...

Emma's loft is wonderful and well decorated with the charm of the era. If you enjoy staying away from the fray of the city, it is perfectly located. So much to do around the neighborhood of Carlton, and still an easy walk to the City, Victoria Markets etc. We even walked to the MCG from here. There are so many restaurants to try in the neighborhood & the city, so having the ability to make coffee/tea and toast is all we needed for our week long stay. I would highly recommend Emma's Loft in Carlton

Our stay in this beautiful little abode was absolutely breathtaking hay. It's such a warm little nook with exceptional rustic features that give it real character. The fire place was a beauty particularly in this chilly winter. The loft sleeping space was a real treat. This whole experience was really delightful. Thanks for having us!
