Revel & Hide. These two words sum up a weekend in Melbourne for many. For all the enjoyment that the city brings, there’s something special in taking a moment to stow away too. For Lisa McKernan and Eddie Farrell, the owners of this chic Collingwood stay, providing space to act like a local is part of the fun.

The apartment is a cosy spot for two. There’s a queen-sized bed dressed in a cloud of lush linens; a blue-velvet Chesterfield sofa in the lounge, and a balcony with room to perch for a gin or two. Moody, French-wash walls create atmosphere, balanced by floor-to-ceiling windows to keep a breezy vibe. The building's rooftop pool overlooks the Collingwood’s iconic red warehouses and character-filled streetscapes.

You can experience a taste of the city before you’ve even left the apartment’s four walls. There’s teas from The Source Bulkfoods, coffee from Everyday Coffee, a reusable wine bottle from Glou, mugs from Ghost Wares and bathroom products from Hunter Lab.
