My house is friendly and warm in Winter, with a nice private garden in Summer. I have a heat pump and a pellet fire. There are double doors around the house that open to the terrace for enjoying the hot days.
I love meeting people from all over the world and hearing your stories.
I'm happy to provide tea and coffee, with breakfast or dinner being a negotiable extra.
Living in Burnside is a great spot for jumping off to the city and the South Island. I am close to the airport, 10 - 15 minutes to the city centre, depending on traffic, and it's easy to get on the ring road heading North or South.
My house is in a quiet street and very private. Both the front and back gardens are secluded from the street, full of greenery and stunning in Spring.
I've been told plenty of times that my home has a "good vibe". I think it's true, it's a happy house! It may not be big and flashy but it makes you welcome.
I love traveling myself and meeting new people from other places and cultures. I look forward to meeting you , sharing my home and helping you enjoy my city and country.
I'm happy to be flexible with times,meals, and dates of staying. If the date you want isn't available on the calendar, feel free to ask me.It may be that I can wriggle things a bit! My shift work just limits my meet & greet ability! I can leave a key in a lock box.
You will be sharing my house, with only my bedroom and office being off limits.
Your bedroom is comfortable and pleasant. The bed is really comfy and I have 'a thing' about decent pillows!! There are electrics blankets but please be careful to turn them off before leaving the room. Of course, I always provide clean bedding and towels. Feel free to ask for extra towels if you need them.
Interaction with guests
I hope to meet people who would like a bit of local knowledge and help, or would just like to swap stories! I am a nurse and am happy to accommodate those who need a bit of extra assistance.
Guide dogs and the like are welcome.
If you want to be private, though, that's fine too!
Other things to note
I may be able to collect you from the airport at times, depending on my shifts.
- Please treat my house as you would like someone to treat yours!
- I can be flexible about check in and check out times, with advance notice. I understand you may have flights at less civilised hours! I simply ask you be respectful of others in the house, coming and going quietly, and packing in advance.
- I am happy to discuss having a pet here, as I have none at the moment, but it not a definite given I will say yes!
IF YOU HAVE AN ILLNESS, PRIOR TO ARRIVING, PLEASE INFORM ME AS IT MAY NOT BE APPROPRIATE FOR YOU TO STAY HERE. THANKS.
