Our AirBNB space consists of a bedroom with a queen sized bed, a private bathroom, and a sitting room that has a sofa-bed that can be used for a third guest or couple travelling with you.
Guests are welcome to relax upstairs with us if they wish - the living room photos are of our upstairs sitting room, not the small one that is downstairs for your private use.
Mostly we just have couples stay and use that space to themselves.
No smoking inside.
Cleaning fees only applied in exceptional circumstances.
Use anything you like in the kitchen but please clean up after yourself. Put your dirty dishes next to the sink and we'll take care of it from there.
Eat as much of the breakfast items as you like but please leave the other items.
Cleaning fees only if needed.
Cancel up to 5 days before your trip and get a full refund. Cancel within 5 days of your trip and the first night is non-refundable, but 50% of the cost for the remaining nights will be refunded.
In our spare time together, my husband Les and I enjoy walks, cycling, playing and listening to music, attending music events, movies and some TV watching, and travelling locally, interstate, and overseas.
I (Alison) have lived for periods in the Netherlands and Canada some years ago. We have both travelled a bit to other parts of the world, and in 2011 we enjoyed a wonderful trip to the UK and south of France. We hope to visit the USA and Canada in 2013.
Les has retired from the work force and he plays golf at least two days a week. He is an accomplished leather artist, and spends time in his leather workshop here at home. He also plays the mandolin, and particularly loves Irish music.
I work full-time at the moment.
We love our present home in Highton (a suburb of Geelong). We have great views from our home of the Barwon River, across Geelong and to areas beyond. Our home is a short drive to the start of the Great Ocean Road, as well as to the Bellarine Peninsula with its beautiful beaches, farms and wineries. It is less than an hour's drive or train journey into downtown Melbourne (which is less than it takes from outer Melbourne suburbs). About 70 minutes drive to Melbourne's international and domestic airport, and less than 30 minutes to Avalon airport (domestic travel only, at this stage). There are airport buses between Geelong and these airports.
