For a unique and raw experience of Melbourne Docklands, Australia, stay in this water side private accommodation! The property has two rooms with shared bathrooms and is short of Airbnb facilities such as a fully equipped kitchen although a microwave, toaster, and kettle are made available. Despite this, the property has a charm of its own. The location is in a developing part of Docklands and is walking distance to everything including the free tram zone, which means that getting around every major attraction is a breeze. Walking to and from the property will let guests experience this waterfront region through its waterside restaurants, windy ambience, as well as its modern art sculptures. For single travelers though, the property does not come highly recommended as it is not located in a residential or apartment block.
