As the state capital and most populous city in Victoria, Australia, Melbourne is home to some of the best cafes, bars, and nightlife in Australia. Voted the ‘World’s Most Liveable City’ by the Economist in 2011, it has remained at the top spot since then.
To help you have a fantastic time, here are top 10 Airbnb's to keep you happy in Melbourne:
Tastefully designed by a local architect, this apartment is part of a seven-unit development recently completed. Inspired by the Japanese space management system, the architect himself designed the timber-clad pod that joins the bathroom, kitchen, and living room into one tastefully linked space.
This two-story loft features large windows that allow guests to enjoy the natural light that flows in through the semi-translucent curtains. Roll about in the upper bedroom where you will be well-hidden from any exterior disturbances.
Richmond is an area filled with Asian grocery shops and local produce. Famous for its vibrant cultural hotspots, there are plenty of cafes within walking distance to enjoy a good cuppa.
