About this listing
Hiya, we're Ruth, Yos and our son Reuven. We are an easy going family. We've been hosting homestay students for 5 years and enjoy the cultural exchange and experience. We prefer people who want to stay 3 weeks or more.
We decided to try BNB.
We have 2 rooms available. Both have been renovated recently so they are very clean and nice (you can view photos)
In your room you will find: a very comfy bed, a fan / air-con, laundry basket, desk, LCD TV and ample storage. We also supply all the linen.
You would share a very spacious bathroom with one other guest.
Our house is very big:
Upstairs: 3 bedrooms, lounge room, kitchen, small front veranda, large back deck with 6 burner BBQ and large table, bathroom and separate toilet.
Downstairs: 2 bedrooms, rumpus room (music room), cinema room, kitchenette / wet-bar, laundry, gym (weights, exercise bike etc.) bathroom and separate toilet.
Outside: Big, level grassy area, Cubby-House (for the young at heart) and 3 chickens that produce yummy, free range, organic eggs.
The house is screened throughout so no creepy crwalies, mossies or flies.
Make yourself at home. You will have access to the entire house, excluding our bedrooms and bathroom.
More specifically: chill out on the hammock (front veranda) with a book or use one of the banana lounges to sun yourself on the grass. Watch a movie in the cinema room or... You get the idea, feel free to use all the lovely facilities in the house, providing that you are respectful to other people.
We supply free wi-fi, breakfast and dinner and you can use the washing machine. We also have a fridge downstairs for you to use for any other food you may want.
Interaction with guests
You can be involved as much or as little as you want. But generally we like to feel like we live in a home and not a hotel. So we definitely expect some interaction. We generally have a sit down dinner as we feel it's a good thing for our family to experience.
Our neighbourhood is nice, quite and safe but is also very close to the city. We live on house right next to a nature reserve (Toohey Forest) which offers lovely walking paths and you are guaranteed to see and hear a lot of beautiful birds.
There is a bus station a few minutes walk from our house and lots of free on street parking if you plan to have a car.
Other things to note
Our interests are: Music, movies, reading, bush walks, sports etc.
We have both travelled extensively and visited/lived in: Australia, Israel, Canada, South America, Nepal, India, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Japan, Hong Kong to name a few
Hope to hear from you soon,
Ruth, Yos and Reuven.
Please be respectful to us as a family and our property.
We don't smoke but have no problem with outside, considerate smokers.
