Many people come to Melbourne for a holiday and like to get accommodation as close to the MSG or Rod Laver Arena as possible if they come for the cricket or the tennis. But after an exhausting day of cheering your team or tennis hero you really need to come back to comfortable accommodation. We offer some of the best self-contained apartments in Richmond, Melbourne that are within walking distance of these sporting complexes.
There is much more room in an apartment that has all the same amenities and features of home. You don’t have to walk sideways to fit into the bathroom or trip over your luggage because there is nowhere to store it. In addition, you can actually save money by having some or all of your meals at your accommodation. Even if you use easy to prepare frozen meals it will be more affordable than dining at a restaurant every night. Of course it is nice to dine out too, but creating a balance between restaurants and home cooking will save you money.
The self-contained apartments in Melbourne contain everything you need for your stay, whether that is to be two days or two weeks. Once, such apartments were only available on a long-term basis but that has now changed. People like to experience the same comfort and amenities that they have at home even on a short trip or holiday.
So don’t stress about moving to Melbourne, because there is always a roof over you head, and a great coffee to be drunk. Good Luck!
