“Meko the magnificent!”
Reviewed 17 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

What a great place to stay! We went to melbourne with another couple, our search for a 2 bed,2 bathroom led us to Meko. It is a well designed terrace located in Carlton. It's just 2 minutes walk to the heart of delicious Lygon St. Despite being so close to this bustling dining precinct, Meko is quiet and has a pleasant view of the tree lined street. Everything you would need has been provided. I was a little hesitant at first because we were asked to pay in full prior to our stay, however there was no need to worry. Our whole stay was managed so well, from the pleasant welcome text, right down to the follow up email. Katrina managed our booking & was extremely helpful. A thoroughly magnificent place that we will definitely visit again.

“Wonderful place to stay!”
Reviewed 11 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

So pleased we chose Meko for our last few nights in Australia. We loved the area around Lygon Street, had a lovely time in the Italian restaurants and a not to be missed visit to Brunetti's cake shop for dessert after dinner! Meko was extremely comfortable and well equipped and was ideal for 2 couples, each having a beautiful bedroom with en-suites. We were left some essentials by the lovely owners to start our stay-bread, milk and butter.
I will certainly recommend Meko to anyone staying in Melbourne and I will be hoping to return myself next time I'm in Melbourne.

The location was excellent. So close to Lygon St but tucked away so not at all noisy. The owners are super lovely and we will definitely be staying again soon :)

“Fabulous”
Reviewed 25 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

The apartment was perfect for our family of 3. It was well equipped with essentials and furnished to an excellent standard. The apartment was also ideally situated, being close to wonderful restaurants, shops and bars as well as Melbourne University which was the main purpose of our visit. We cannot recommend it highly enough and would love to stay there again.

Thanks Katrina.....our stay at Meko was delightful. Access to Lygon St, Rathdowne St and Brunswick St is just brilliant. The house was very comfortable and we managed several good dinners (7 people) and a couple of good lunches as well.

Everything was as expected. Excellent kitchen, BBQ, wifi and seriously comfortable beds. Grace the boys and I enjoyed our stay there very much indeed and will recommend you to our friends who come to Melb.

“Perfect location, well equipped and cosy!”
Reviewed 16 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Thanks Katrina and Irene for a wonderful stay - my friends and I loved staying at Meko.

Located right off Lygon Street - we ate ourselves stupid at all the amazing restaurants and cafes near by. Woolworths is also close, so we could stock up on the essentials we forgot to bring! There is everything you need at Meko; fluffy towels, comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, TV, WiFi, Bluetooth music system, BBQ... plus much more!

We were given a loaf of bread, some butter and some milk on arrival too, which was nice.

My only suggestion would be to supply spare blankets for the beds as we got cold, and don't like to use the heater throughout the night.

“Exceptional in every way!”
Reviewed 24 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Meko is such a great find! A superb location right in the middle of Carlton, a hop and a skip from great restaurants (you must try D.O.C.!) and shopping. The apartment itself is stylish and beautifully appointed. It was a pleasure to interact with both Katrina and Irene, and they made the whole reservation process simple. We definitely will be staying at Meko the next time we are in Melbourne!
