Ruth's house is a lovely old timber home in a suburb very close to the CBD. The house is filled with Ruth's personality as it has been her family home for many years. My room was spacious with a big desk to work at and access to wifi. The bed super comfy. But the highlight of this visit for me, was Ruth. I really enjoyed getting to know Ruth and I felt like I slipped into family life very quickly, I was invited to join the evening meal, and enjoyed the camaraderie of Ruth and any other visitors that joined us. A quiet, relaxed and very friendly house. Thanks Ruth. It was a delight.

Was close to amenities and the city. But once there feel miles away from anywhere. Very relaxing.

Ruth was a great host for our little trip to townsville. we stayed for four days and really were able to relax and enjoy our little holiday. She helped us out when we needed some tips and made sure we were feeling right at home. Not only does she have a beautiful house with a lot of nice plants but waking up in a great Queenslander with birds chirping outside was really that extra addition of having an idyllic stay. We highly recommend staying with Ruth if you are looking for a peaceful but close proximity to the city.

Ruth has a lovely home with an eclectic feel. She's warm and welcoming and a very good host. A great place to stay.

Originally from Germany, I have been living in Australia for the last 33 years. I work at a high school, and enjoy cooking, camping and gardening in my free time.
Over the past 20 years I have hosted many international visitors, and look forward to the stories of those to come.
