Would definitely recommend Rejuvenate Stays. We stayed at two of there places. They were both great places, clean, great areas, and comfortable. Rejuvenate stays was very accomodating. We needed to stay an extra night and they were able to find a place for us very easily. Overall great experience with them.

Great place in a quiet part of Richmond. Close to everything you need to have an enjoyable stay when visiting Melbourne. We were there to watch some AFL games so it was a really good location close to the MCG.”
