Andrew's home is a definite must do experience! We were very lucky we got to stay in such a warm, welcoming, very clean and relaxing environment. It is a wonderful place to get back to nature and completely unwind. Andrew is an amazing host and will go out of his way to ensure you are comfortable. Here you will also meet dear Rocky and Wallace, which are so lovely to cuddle up to and will always make you smile. Even though we were only there for two days we miss being there dearly and hope to return soon.

Response from Andrew:
Thank you Sarah for your beautiful truthful review. A big THANK YOU goes out to you both for helping us meet 'Super Host' status on Air BnB. Now we are one, we had to check ourselves on what it was! Yes it was a busy holiday period indeed. It would be great to see you both again in 2017. Rocky Goodboy always loves friends whom revisit :) PS I am now a fan of Grappa!

If you like getting away from it all in a safe and secluded spot, rustic charm, and a clean tidy, well-ordered home with a large verandah in the treetops then this is the place for you! We only stayed one night on our way from Brisbane to Sydney and appreciated getting to know Andrew our very accommodating host.

This is probably one of the most unique places you can stay in. It has an impossible to replicate combination of location, house design and host. The location is gorgeous with a beautiful view and completely in-tune with the surrounding nature. The house is very original, beautiful and comfortable in it's interior design and has a great veranda to connect to the outside nature. Andrew is a very interesting person to take to, with daring ideas and notions and has personally crafted the stylish house with great taste. The contact with animal life is easy if you wish it and Rocky, the dog, is a great lovable creature!

A big 'THANK YOU' goes out to you Joana and brother Daniel, for helping us to meet 'Super Host' status on Air BnB. Now we are one, we had to check ourselves on what it was! Yes it was a busy holiday period indeed. It would be great to see you again in 2017. Our travel directions have been modified now, so even when lost, you can still find us in a flash! Especially the amendment for Daniel the navigator, “Check you odometer if you are at 5km? U Turn!” No doubt Daniel had a great time with his big sister :)

Andrews home is beautiful and we very much enjoyed our stay. The room was very comfortable and all the facilities we used were accessible and functioning perfectly. Andrew was extremely accommodating by waiting for our late arrival and explaining the property. Rocky (the dog) was a treat. We really appreciated the effort Andrew had gone to in including labels throughout the house and including breakfast. We felt very comfortable in his home and it was definitely worth it. We would love to be able to come back. This property is perfect for anyone wanting peace and tranquility, whilst also enjoying the company of a very friendly and helpful host.

Andrew's place was quiet and secluded. His place was clean and cozy as well as full of his creative ideas. His bed was so comfortable. Andrew and his family Rocky and Wallace were very friendly. His place has a great view of stars and galaxy. We had a really good experience during our stay. It's a shame that we couldn't stay there longer. We will definitely go back to visit his place when we travel back there.

We've had a lovely long weekend at Andrew's place. Everything matched our expectations, including the cozy and stylish room and entire house, friendly host and magnificent views almost right from the door of the house. While walking in the forest, we had chances to see kangaroos and possums. Overall, it's a great place if you are looking for a seclusion / escape from a busy city life.

Me and my girlfriend had the privilege to stay at Andrew's place for a long weekend and we've been stoked by the beautiful landscape of the location. The peacefulness of it all and the storytelling ability of Andrew made for a wonderful time, and we're pretty sure that we want to return in the future.

Andrew User ProfileAndrew is a superhost.

Being a Pommie I made the move to Australia back in the early 90's. Having a desire to live in the countryside and be surrounded by mountainous views and forest. Exploring and discovering is the chillout part of my daily life.

I have a strong technical and creative aptitude, mixing my worklife as an Aussie Home Energy Consultant with artistic creation. I love the outdoors, wildlife, world music and importantly the peace, tranquility and solitude of where I live here at 'Cockatoos Calling'.

Such a great place, where importantly I love the chance to share all of this, with good company and maybe new friends, whilst having a good laugh. I look forward to meeting you :)
