Voted as the World’s most ‘liveable city’ for over five years, there are at least 101 different reasons to take a vacation to Melbourne. The top three most obvious reasons have to be the sun and the surf, with tourists flocking from all over the world every year to soak up some rays on the beach, followed by the relaxed and welcoming atmosphere that will soon have you grinning from ear to ear. Finally, a big pull is the wide range of activities you can do in Melbourne, from shopping, strolling around the bright and bustling Queen Victoria Market, seeing the latest art, and the fun nightlife. Firstly though, you’ll need somewhere to stay to soak up all that sand, surf and smiles, so book one of the best Airbnb Plus homes in Melbourne, Australia today.

6. Melbourne Le’City apartment (from USD 198)

Overlooking Victoria Harbour, this modern apartment has three bedrooms and can sleep up to eight guests in total. The first two bedrooms feature queen-sized beds whilst the third room features a twin. Each room is elegantly decorated with neutral undertones and subtle color-pops. The bedrooms share up to two full bathrooms.

The property is just a short walk to attractions such as the Etihad Stadium, the Docklands, and Crown Entertainment Precinct.

7. Comfortable studio apartment near Parliament House (from USD 96)

This bright apartment for two guests is one of the best locations in terms of access to amenities, historical sites, and entertainment. It is another open-plan design, this time featuring a large black leather sofa, a small pine-wood dining area, and a compact full kitchen. We like that although the property is open-plan, the double-sized bedroom does feel slightly separate because it is up a few short steps on a different level. The studio is also in a secure location near the Parliament House.
