This apt has a lovely, peaceful ambience, loads of character and has been immaculately maintained. Sunny, light and warm with north facing aspect from living room and balcony and morning sun on bedroom sides. The area has a cosmopolitan feel but is also quiet and leafy. You are just a short stroll from restaurants, cafes, bars, markets and the sea. Close to Brighton Road, Ackland Street, St. Kilda Botanical Gardens, Carlisle Street and Ormond Road. One block from trams, short walk to Balaclava Station. 10 min walk or 5 min bike ride to St.Kilda Marina and the glorious sea. The apartment has many special art deco features including high ceilings. Gas fire place in living room. Plants and herbs to sit in amongst to enjoy your morning coffee or tea. This neighbourhood is also known as "Poets Corner" and has much to offer the professional, international traveler or full time grad student. Internet, cable TV, utilities are all included in rent for December 2017 and January 2018. The main bedroom is a beautiful, large, light and airy space and very quiet. Excellent wardrobe/storage space. Use of all areas, kitchen and living room. Please note: This space is ONLY available from December 18th through January 30th, 2018. However, there is a possibility of taking over the lease and having the entire apartment from January 31st. It's a real little gem.


I'm a professional (education/arts sector) working as a sessional teacher at a number of universities. I travel regularly for work but also work from home some days. I've just signed a lease on another apartment (as I need an off street parking space) and will be moving January 31st. I'm looking for a mature, trustworthy house mate (it could be a couple) though age is not a barrier for a short term rental from December 17th through January 30th with the possibility of taking over the lease from January 31st onwards. This situation will suit professional/academic or student studying and/or working. The person(s) will need to provide proof of employment or university attendance and two personal references. I welcome people from diverse backgrounds, cultures and genders.
