Our Top 10 Favourite Airbnbs In Melbourne

In this article, we share with you a list of our top 10 favorite Airbnbs in Melbourne for you to consider on your next getaway.

Airbnb has revolutionized how we travel. Granted, we still had short-term renting prior to its entry, but having access to a convenient list of all available rentals in a new city, and being assured of their safety has really changed things- for the better!

For one, Airbnb’s are cheaper than hotels. Let’s face it very few people go to a new city to stay in their hotels. We want to get to see what the city has to offer. Slushing the costs of accommodation allows you to vacation longer, and see more!

With that said, let’s take a look at some of the best Airbnbs this great Australian city has to offer!

One Bedroom In Brunswick

airbnb melbourne

Address: Brunswick, Melbourne

Superhost: Yes

Airbnb Plus: No

Price (per night): $35 per night

Description: Located along Sydney Road in the laid back suburb of Brunswick is this modern apartment complex. The Airbnb is a studio apartment within the complex itself and houses two people.

It’s ideal for one or two people as it comes with a single bed, and a shared bath and a full kitchen. Other amenities available here include free wifi, a dryer, an iron box, and a washer. The place doesn’t have a tv, but as a tourist, you won’t be spending much time in the apartment anyway.

Considering that the average Airbnb rate per night is upwards of $150, this place is a bargain! Moreover, what stood out for us, beyond the price, is the many reviews saying how clean the place is. Cleanliness cannot be understated especially when your staying in someone else’s place!

Beyond that, the location is really convenient. The Brunswick station is just a couple of minutes away. Tram 19 stop is close by too and it will take you directly to the CBD.

Brunswick itself is ideal for a tourist. The town is very lively (thanks to its young population) and very cosmopolitan (as most of Australia is). You don’t need to venture far for your first tourist experience, as Melbourne Zoo and the Royal Gardens are literally right next to Brunswick
