Fitzroy is a buzz with art, coffee, and design. Amidst all this is The Factory. We imagined this space around our lifestyle. Relaxed with an eclectic design touch inspired by our joint love of art, photography, music, sustainability and food.


On offer is our spare bedroom. The room is large enough for a queen size bed and side tables with extra personal space provided off your bedroom with a balcony. Pull out the deck chairs and relax with a cuppa, or a cheeky drink later in the day.

You will also have the use of the main bathroom as well as the generous indoor/outdoor living, dining and kitchen areas. If kicking back with a book, cooking and relaxing is your thing then this is the space for you!

The Factory is set inside an old chocolate factory, originally built around the now gated Macrobertson Close. The gated lane leads to a grand common area with palm and cherry trees that create our outlook. We purchased in early 2014 and have been slowly doing it up.

Accesso ospiti

In the room you will find linen, bedding, towels, split system heating and cooling, and a small lockable safe.
There is a washer & dryer in the main bathroom.
The ground floor has shared open plan living areas with a dining table, lounge and a grand piano for the musically inclined. The kitchen includes a gas stove and oven with plenty of herbs and spices. For fresh seasonal herbs make your way to the patio where you will also find an amazing outdoor day bed to enjoy on a sunny day.
There are split system heating and cooing units on each level as well as ducted heating throughout.

Interazione con gli ospiti

As an artist and a contractor I work from home on the top floor and I’m in and out of the house depending on my schedule. My girlfriend Kate also lives here and works a day job and is a photographer in her spare time. We’re both friendly and sociable people.

Internet wireless

Regole della casa

No pets, smoking or children under 10 (sorry - the staircase is definitely not kid safe).
No parties except for pre-arranged dinner parties. Keep the kitchen clean for communal use and be generally respectful of our space.
No Hollywood piano moments – meaning no drinks, food or people on the piano...but PLEASE play it!

Seconda volta da Renée, siamo andati a colpo sicuro! Disponibilità e cordialità sono il loro punto di forza, Renée e Kate sanno come farti sentire a casa! Casa perfetta, pulita e accogliente! Arrivare a casa dopo una giornata nella city e trovare un sorriso ad accoglierti non ha prezzo! Grazie di nuovo ragazze!

Arrivato a Melbourne, dopo 24 ore di viaggio e trovare Kate ad accogliermi in casa è stata la cosa più carina che potesse esserci. Renée e Kate sono due persone splendide, gentili e molto discrete. Sempre disponibili, il soggiorno a Melbourne è stato spaziale, grazie anche alle loro dritte su locali e sulla città in generale. Mai invasive e sempre molto rispettose dell'ospite. L'appartamento si trova a pochissimi minuti dal centro, e credetemi, nel più bel quartiere di Melbourne. A 200 metri c'è la fermata del tram 86. Arredato con gusto e molto pulito, rispecchia appieno la personalità di chi ci vive. Situato in un piccolo agglomerato di appartamenti, gode di una tranquillità e di un silenzio impareggiabili... Il bagno è privato, che volete di più?! Toglietevi le scarpe quando camminate in casa, il pavimento è tutto in legno e merita rispetto... Grazie Renée, grazie Kate, per i momenti in compagnia a scambiare quattro chiacchiere, per le degustazioni di whisky, per le risate, per i momenti divertenti passati insieme!

Renee and Kate were both so lovely and welcoming. They gave clear instructions on how to get to the apartment from the airport, and communication was very easy. The apartment itself is just like the pictures. Very open, light and extremely tidy. It's a short walk to some great cafes and bars, and a 10 min bus/tram ride in to the heart of melbourne. They even leant me a Myki card, which you need to get on and off the trams and buses. Nothing was too much trouble. I only wish i had had more time to enjoy my balcony!

Absolutely amazing stay at the Factory in the heart of Fitzroy! I couldn't have imaged a more perfect place to stay during my 5 day trip to Melbourne for work (and some play). The beautiful apartment is exactly as described. Renée and Kate were fantastic hosts, while also allowing me my independence so naturally. I felt really at home the whole time and loved the walking distance to vibrant Brunswick and Smith Streets, there simply weren't enough meals in the day to satisfy my vegetarian foodism! Handy to supermarket, fruit shop and organic shop, and really easy to get on trams. Really appreciated the insider tips and the lovely welcome pack complete with maps etc! Thanks for making my stay awesome! Couldn't have imagined a better 1st AirBnB experience.

Staying at The Factory and beeing the guest of Renée and Kate made my stay in Melbourne (3 days) to the absolutely wonderful experience that it had been. It was the exceptional atmosphere of this place that attracted my attention right from the beginning when seeing the fotos and description on Airbnb. To experience this atmosphere, the beautifully and individually arranged and decorated rooms and the lovely hospitality of Renée and Kate was amazing. The Factory is situated right in the heart of Fitzroy and next to Carlton (all in walking distance and with a very good tram-connection to the centre of Melbourne) – an area that is so vibrant, attracting and interesting - full of coffee/food/restaurants, art and design - that it is worth to spend much more than only a look/ a moment there (follow the excellent recommendations of Renée and Kate!!!). I did not have the chance to meet Renée, but we had a very nice conversation via email. Kate was an absolutely lovely host, I felt very much welcome. Whenever I will have the chance to come back to Melbourne I would love to stay at The Factory again.

We had a wonderful time at The Factory. It is a fabulous space and Renee and Kate were super welcoming and friendly (although we didn't cross paths many times!). The room is set up so comfortably with a fantastic Bathroom all to yourself - including a spa bath! You are right in the middle of all the Fitzroy action when you stay here, we will most definitely be back!
