Our home is a modern contemporary space that we keep cozy in winter & cool in summer.

We are 700m from Mission Bay beach & cafes. It's a scenic 7km uber or lime scooter ride along the water front to the CBD making it perfect for business travellers wanting a quiet retreat after a long day in the city working.

Hilary & Mark are fantastic hosts and it was great getting to know them. Their place is immaculately clean and a really stylish home, the bedroom is lovely and you have access to a private bathroom and their home's facilities. Eddy and Ralph are always happy to keep you company…

Mark and Hilary's beautiful house is a very short distance from the ocean and close to cafes and shops. I recommend this spot to anyone who enjoys good conversation and the company of a couple of very well behaved pets.

thanks Sara. so pleased to hear Ralph and Eddy were both well behaved - I suspect they knew you worked with much bigger animals than themselves and so decided it was best to be on their best behavior if they didn't want to be shipped out LOL take care and we hope to meet again…
