14 Airbnbs In Melbourne's CBD - Updated 2020

Everybody knows Melbourne, right? Apparently it’s the second most populous city in Australia and the capital of the state of Victoria. It’s located on the southeastern side of the country, by the coast, like all big cities of Australia. Usually, when people visit Melbourne they want to be in the centre of everything. And what would be a better centre than the Central Business District of the city? But we’ve all got to agree that accommodations in big cities are often much the same and become pretty boring. Not this time. Let me introduce you to the list of the most interesting Airbnb accommodations in Melbourne CBD in Australia.

1. Indoor Heaven and Forest (from USD 123)

The name says it all. You want to sleep in the forest, but you don’t want all the bugs and nasty things to walk on you while sleeping. Don’t worry. This forest is completely safe, clean and will give you a chance to sleep in your own little piece of heaven. There are trees, grass, a little wooden swing… and TV! A modern way to meet with nature. And imagine that it was all hand-crafted by four people who wanted to give some more joy and smiles to people coming to Melbourne CBD. There’s one king size bed in the room, and a WiFi. You’ll have your own apartment with a bathroom and fully equipped kitchen.
