Interaction with guests
Our interaction is as much as you want or as little as you need it depends on you.
We are here to serve you depending on the options you choose, E.g.

I love our neighbors many of them have been in the street for several generations and are very neighborhood security conscientious. We are in walking distance to an animal reserve where you can get up close with some of Australias common wildlife. Its a great place to take the family and a lot of things to do. Close to fitness facilities and public pools. A 90 min train ride will take you to the beautiful Blue Mountains theres so much to do.

I'm 52 years old, Mother of six children and 9 grandchildren. I'm semi retired. I love travelling particularly the Asian countries. Originally from NZ, I have been living in Australia for 22 years. My husband Damian is Australian with a sprinkling of German, Irish and Scottish background. We share the same love and joy for animals and wildlife.
My hobbies are diverse. I love to travel, Food, Culture and meeting friendly happy adventurous spirits...just like me.
I want to make a difference and I'm constantly seeking ways to improve the community I live in. So I've started at home changing me first from the inside out, spreading my infectious joy with my husband, children and grand-children. Yes we have 9 beautiful grandchildren and we want them to grow up in a world unspoilt ...if that's humanly possible.
Live life Enjoy life and be real. Be true to yourself, find peace and joy in this crazy world that we live....Oh and please look after mother nature she's beén good to you and I.
What kind of host are we?
We are old school straight out of the 70's and 80's. We don't like disrespectful people and we definitely love our peace and quiet. In saying that we'll break out from time to time and let loose but after that we go back to our conservative ways.
People find us loving and caring but we're not push overs. Be good to us and we'll be good to you.
