Big old classic North Fitzroy house in a great location, very quiet street, easy parking yet close to cafes and shopping. The 2 main bedrooms have very comfy beds, 3rd bedroom is a kids bedroom. The 1st main bedroom with ensuite is a standout. We enjoyed our time in this home as a family.

We were a group of girls staying for a city break. The house was spacious, clean, in a great spot near gardens and cafes. Very good customer service as well.

Accommodation is great. Nice and clean, big and inviting. In a great part of Melbourne, easy to get around with Brunswick street on the door step. Most definitely would stay again.

“Beautiful, historic period home on a quiet street with enormous rear yard full of citrus trees. Great barbecue for cooking on warm summer nights. Exemplary location if you love a convenient 3 minute walk to the huge and picturesque public gardens (Edinburgh Gardens), the local strip with gourmet restaurants, delis, fresh produce and of course, the city bound tram. And the local public library. Well appointed home with extensive selection of reading material in the library. You cannot go wrong; highly recommended.”

"Gorgeous Melbourne inner city villa in a beautiful tree-lined Street close to all amenities, trendy Brunswick and the cbd. Spacious bedrooms and a fully functional kitchen, relaxing back yard, beautiful garden and comfy lounge with terrific selection of books, cds and a big screen for Netflix movies and the Boxing Day test meant that Windermere offered the perfect home away from home for our family Christmas. Thankyou to the team at Rejuvenate Stays for first class welcoming service. We will be back.” Dec 2019

We enjoyed our stay with 5 adults (not all couples) so that space was great and big. We enjoyed some great restaurants and pub just down the road, yet was still fairly close to Brunswick Street and other places we wanted to explore. Thank you for having us stay :) Oct 2018

The only problem with our stay at Windermere was that it was not long enough! The location is fantastic, within easy walking distance of the cafes and shops in Clifton Hill, 5 minutes from the gorgeous Edinburgh Gardens and an easy tram ride into the city. The house is beautiful,

My family and I had a fantastic time over Christmas staying at the Windermere in Fitzroy! We had a minor hiccup which the staff at Rejuvenate Stays dealt with very promptly. The house is beautiful and so close to public transport, lively shops and amazing restaurants! Thank you so so much for delivering a Christmas Tree to us on Christmas Eve! We will definitely be using rejuvenate stays when we are all in Melbourne again!

We had a wonderful stay at Windermere. Just the ticket for a family get-together. The house was very clean with plenty of fresh, soft bath-towels. Spacious rooms and enormous backyard so close to the city. Windermere is in a quiet, fantastic location with quality cafes for breakfast (great Melbourne coffee) and quality patisseries for afternoon tea very close by. Edinburgh Gardens are a short stroll away and a must visit on a Saturday or Sunday to see a community in action (weddings, football, p
