luxury airbnb melbourne

The metropolitan city of Melbourne lies on the coast of southeast Australia. Melbourne is the capital city of the state of Victoria. The city is a popular vacation destination with many attractions and activities for everyone. Besides the beach, the river Yarra runs through parts of the city, so you have a variety of water sports to engage in. In the city center, you will find Federation Square, a modern development comprised of plazas, shops and cafes. In the Southbank district is the Melbourne Arts Precinct; enjoy a show at the performing arts center, or spend a leisurely afternoon exploring the art exhibits at the National Gallery of Victoria. But if you are staying at one of these luxury Airbnb’s, you may not want to go anywhere at all. Check out our list below of the luxury Airbnbs in Melbourne, Australia.

The garage is large enough for two cars with additional parking in the front. You will be located on the edge of the city center with parks, grocery stores, and restaurants within walking distance.
