Great in summer under the trees, or catching the winter sun. The back deck with its sun bed, large dining table and excellent BBQ will be a lovely addition to your stay.

We loved the cosy home and the kids loved the backyard. Sue made sure the bedding arrangement was setup to suit our family. Sue offered good tips and advice for things to do in Canberra especially with kids.

Sue's place was perfect for our family of three. It had everything we needed inside and a gorgeous garden and barbecue space outside. Sue was easy to communicate with both before and during our stay in her lovely home.

Lovely to host your family Sue and glad you enjoyed the stay. Yes - for long term guests I clear out a couple of shelves, for short term guests I usually just leave a little hanging space; maybe I need to add a bit more!

Thanks Patrick - so glad you enjoyed it all! Good point about drawers - I should have thought of that. For future guests: happy to make space in drawers/wardrobe, feel free to remind me (although as an experienced Airbnb host I should know that...but mostly guests here have been staying under a week so I'm not in the mode yet!). Cheers Patrick. :)
