Melbourne CBD-1 bed apartment, close to Unimelb, RMIT and hospitals

This high ceiling, light filled apartment in Melbourne's CBD is a fantastic base for anyone working or studying at the University of Melbourne, RMIT or in the Parkville hospital precinct.

The apartment is fully furnished with double bed and study desk in the bedroom, plus a day bed and trundle in the lounge. There is a modern kitchen and laundry with washer/dryer, fridge, dishwasher, microwave and four element electric stove as well as all necessary pots, pans, cutlery etc. WIFI included.

Just a two minute walk from North Melbourne train station and the 401 bus to Melbourne Uni, it's in a light-filled heritage building with very thick walls (you really can't hear your neighbours at all!) and a cute coffee shop downstairs, plus skate and dog park around the corner. Access is via the building's original, grand staircase; we are on the first floor.

North Melbourne's Errol and Queensberry street shopping and cafe precinct, one of Melbourne's hidden neighbourhood gems, is 10-15 minutes walk away, including the celebrated Beatrix cake shop and Auction Rooms coffee roastery. The 57 tram to Queen Victoria Market is a short walk and you are also on the doorstep of four different train lines crossing all parts of the city and just two stops away from fabulous Footscray or buzzing Melbourne Central.

This is originally a two bedroom apartment but one of those rooms will be locked during your stay. Importantly, you will have full use of the entire place. No pets please.

About Me
I am a Malaysian living off and on in Australia, having worked for my PhD in Australia, continuing to work as a lecturer and research fellow in various institutions of higher learning in Australia, for several years, then returning to Malaysia as an academic (in environmental sociology) from 2013 to 2016. I am now back in Australia having retired. Through research, teaching and conferencing I have been able to enjoy the joys of travel to many countries of Southeast Asia, living/working in Malaysia Thailand and the Philippines, sojourning in Papua New Guinea, Vietnam, short visits to countries of Africa especially Kenya, Tanzania and Burkina Faso and fellowships in Holland, southern Thailand and southern Philippines. Having retired only at the end of 2016, I still have loose ends to tie, and spend three to four months of the year in Malaysia. I welcome fellow researchers to spend time at my inner city apartment of Melbourne while I am away, hoping that our ties might cross no matter how briefly. A listing for my daughter's inner-city Melbourne home is also attached to my profile. I can put you in touch with her if you are interested.
