Serviced Apartments

Short Term Accommodation and Serviced Apartments

What is the difference between short term accommodation and serviced apartments?

A serviced apartment is a completely furnished apartment, usually located within either a large block of units or high rise multi dwelling units, typically found in and around the central business district of most cities.  They typically provide hotel-like amenities such as reception and 24 hour customer service.

Ivydale short term accommodation offers similar features to serviced apartments, however we tend to provide private townhouses and cottages that are individually owned and operated and generally do not reside in large high rise buildings.
Ivydale short term accommodation properties still provide 24 hour checkin and checkout with our state of the art electronic locks and 24 hour customer phone customer service, however you will not find a permanently manned reception at the front entrance.

Benefits of Short Term Accommodation with Ivydale Short Stay Accommodation


Our short term and long term rentals offer more than just a room.  Our properties have separate areas for cooking, living, dining and separate rooms for sleeping to provide you with a home away from home experience.  You have more space to work and live and entertain other guests in.


Our Short Term Accommodation cottages and townhouses cost approximately 40% less than equivalent hotels with kitchens.  Having your own kitchen allows you the option of saving on room service and/or restaurant costs while you travel.  We offer free WiFi at all of our properties and the longer that you stay at our short term rentals, the cheaper it becomes, as we offer progressive discounts, which make our rental properties ideal for family and business trips, relocating and temporary accommodation if you sell your own home.


There is nothing quite like the privacy of your own home.  With Ivydale, the property is yours while your rent it from us.  You can enjoy your space, bbq on the terrace or balcony and just kick back and relax with your family, friends or work colleagues.


At home, you eat when you feel like it.  Our Melbourne short stay apartments are no different!  You can eat whenever you want, whether it is a light bite or a full meal. This flexibility makes it much easier have family visit and even business meetings.  Many of our properties have sofa beds affording the chance for another guest to stay the night at no additional cost to you.  We just ask that you don't overload the property with people and adhere to the maximum guests that the property can support.

Trusted Accommodation

After every booking and after every clean, we visit the apartment to ensure that the property is returned to pristine condition ready for our next guest.  Our guests can be assured that our properties are maintained to high standards.
