Hop into Preston where it is nestled in the heart of Thornbury. Just a mere 20 minutes away from the CBD, it’s currently one of the most happening places to be in Melbourne now.

Your guests will be blown away by the designer kitchen which is filled with Miele appliances; ideal for whipping that scrumptious dinner for everyone! To top it off, this designer apartment is also child-friendly to the point where the host Sarah provides supplies for babies and kids upon request such as the porta cot, toddler mattress and toys at a small fee.
Sarah has also taken into consideration sensitive sleepers by ensuring quality pillows and soft sheets in the apartment so that you and your guests will have a good night’s rest after a long night of partying. While it is a wonderful place to throw a house party, one should not forget that this luxurious apartment is still a home to someone else.
