About Us

About Boutique Stays
Established in 2006, Boutique Stays is a reputable Melbourne-based property management company providing short to medium term accommodation for guests looking for corporate, family, and pet friendly stays. 

Boutique Stays began as a small, home-based operation born from a desire for a more appealing accommodation option for business travellers where guests could open a window, sink into a comfortable couch, enjoy fresh air from the courtyard, or cook their own meals rather than staying in a basic hotel room. 

Boutique Stays has grown to offer a portfolio of more than 60 high-quality homes and apartments located across almost 40 of Melbourne’s most iconic and popular neighbourhoods. We provide guest-ready properties catering to family groups and the corporate sector where guests want the comfort, space, value, and amenities of a private home. We welcome guests travelling for leisure and business, as well as those who are temporarily out of home while building, renovating, or getting insurance works completed.

Boutique Stays has also recognised the growing demand for quality, pet-friendly properties and our extensive portfolio includes an array of properties that accommodate pets. Impeccable cleaning practices and checks are in place to maintain the high level of presentation across our properties, and to uphold the consistently high levels of guest feedback. Boutique Stays is also a supporter of the RSPCA Victoria and donates $5 from every booking with a pet to the RSPCA.

In recognition of business standards, Boutique Stays has achieved level 2 certification as a Quality and Sustainable Tourism Accredited Business with the Australian Tourism Industry Council. This demonstrates commitment to exceeding guest expectations with great customer service and the highest standards of business practice.

Boutique Stays - part of the A Perfect Stay Group
In March 2019, Boutique Stays was acquired by A Perfect Stay - property management specialists based in Byron Bay with an expanding portfolio of 300 properties around Australia. With closely aligned business values, A Perfect Stay and Boutique Stays share the commitment to provide high levels of customer service for guests, owners and partners. Both brands are underpinned by extensive experience which allows guests to book with confidence no matter whether they are travelling for business or pleasure. 

Quality service, support and accountability forms the DNA of both groups, with our staff committed to building fair, open and honest relationships with our guests, owners and partners. Our supportive and engaging team members never stop seeking to improve our customer and property management service, and we pride ourselves on delivering on the lofty goals and the promises we set. 

The dedicated Melbourne-based team at Boutique Stays is committed to delivering expert guest and owner care, distinct local knowledge, and a growing range of hand-selected, meticulously cared-for properties.

Why book with Boutique Stays?
Our handpicked range of properties has been selected to offer a true home-away-from-home experience - more than can be expected from a standard hotel room or serviced apartment. Guests can enjoy cooking in a full-sized and stocked kitchen, kicking back on the lounge to stream their favourite show, enjoying some time with the kids or pooch in the private courtyard or garden, or using the private laundry. Our properties are located in pleasant residential streets ensuring peace and quiet for guests, and an opportunity to feel part of the community.

All of this without compromising on the amenities expected in a hotel such as free Wi-Fi, hotel-quality beds and linen, private bathrooms and luxury toiletries, professionally styled properties, dedicated study areas [in some homes], 24/7 guest support, and servicing as required, while respecting privacy and the environment.

  • Booking and property support from our Melbourne-based team, 7 days a week
  • After-hours support for in-house guests 24/7
