Welcome to Corto Apartments

Our Story

We are Julia and Matt, a wife and husband team along with our very helpful helpers (and sometimes not so helpful helpers) who are our two young children. Our short-term accommodation business was created as a result of Airbnb’ing an apartment we owned.

Julia was keen not to return to a corporate job and dreamed a job she could juggle kids with, so we created a job for her.

Our business is a little different, we take a lease out on a property and then licence out the place for short term stay. We are Airbnb Superhosts for a reason – our goal is to make your stay as comfortable as possible with a special focus on family and pet stays.

We are not a short-term accommodation management company or other booking platform, we treat every apartment just like the one we own. We have 100% control of all our apartments and they are available year-round on flexible terms.

Julia and Matt are both well-travelled and love meeting new people and sharing stories. We’ve visited over 20 countries combined, are frequent users of Airbnb and in a past life couch surfers. We would love to host you in our lovely apartments in the most liveable city in the world, Melbourne. If you are a foodie and love culture, you must drop in and enjoy the cultural hub of Australia. There is so much to see and do here. We love Melbourne and can’t wait to share it with you.

While we currently only have properties available in Melbourne, we plan to expand in Bali, Indonesia.

Client Reviews

  • Julia was a lovely host always available and fast to respond. It was great that she met us at the apartment in Windsor to show us through and aquaint us with everything. The apartment is spotless and very well equipped. It’s nice that the apartment was pet friendly. Thanks so much we would highly recommend this apartment.

  • Great location in Yarraville - short stroll to the village, public transport and everything you could need, 15min drive into the city. Modern apartment complex with a gym and covered carpark. Safe area, very family friendly. Julia was a lovely host with prompt communication. Julia's apartment is pet friendly, too! We travelled with our one year old child and dog and it met our needs for our three night stay.

  • Julia will go above and beyond to help you feel comfortable and to feel like you are in your own home!!

  • We had a fabulous time at Julia’s. East Melbourne is a great location, lovely apartment, we especially loved the heated pool and gym. Julia even gave our three year old a bag of toys to play with which was wonderful!

  • Julia & Matt were the perfect hosts with a perfect space in Collingwood, love it!

  • We had a great stay in Brighton with our 3 kids and fur baby. Julia has thought of everything, and it was those little touches that made our stay amazing
