The space

This ground floor apartment is 15 minutes southeast of Canberra city and is perfect for relaxing in. It is newly renovated, features large built-ins with hanging space, drawers, and shelves for all your things. It is positioned underneath a family home with it's own entrance.

The living area features a window seat, a queen size bed suitable for two guests with bedside tables, a small dining table with two chairs, a tv, two comfy chairs and ample storage space.

The kitchen features a microwave, portable oven with two hotplates, kettle, toaster, frying pan, and all the basics for making a feast for breakfast,lunch or dinner. Two comfortable chairs to recline in, and a separate table, with chairs and a window seat.

A washing machine is available in the space, along with a shared outdoor clothesline, or you can use the indoor clothes airer provided. Access to a dryer is available on request.

A separate bathroom exists with shower and commode. If you have extras on your trip, i.e. a third person staying, we can provide a comfortable single bed in the apartment, or a Porta-cot for a baby.

It is 5 minutes walk to shops, restaurants and a hotel, the Parliamentary triangle including museums and more, is 15 minutes away, and central Canberra is 20 minutes. There is access to a large number of parks, many fine wineries in the surrounding districts, and both the beach and the snow are 2 hours away so close enough to visit and return in a single day if you are of a mind.

Guest access

The entire downstairs apartment is yours to use. There is a table and chairs outside your door in the backyard, which is shared. A vehicle can be parked in the driveway. You have your own external access via side gate and door.

Interaction with guests

We are free to provide tips, directions and ideas, or just interact and chat about anything.
If privacy is needed, we are more than happy to leave you to enjoy your stay.

The neighbourhood

Jerrabomberra is a very pleasant place to visit, or use as a base for seeing the sights of Canberra. There are numerous walking tracks over Mount Jerrabomberra within 200 metres of the front door, as well as nearby Jerrabomberra Lake. Further in town, there is Commonwealth Park including an all-abilities playground, as well as the Parliamentary triangle and it's museum's, old and new Parliament House, and the National Arboretum.

For eating, there is a Chinese/SE Asian Restaurant down at the local shops, the pub has some great food, and there is a Michel's Patisserie, a pizza take-away and a fish-n-chip shop as well.

There are too many restaurants in Canberra and surrounds to describe them in any detail. Our favourites are the Griffith Vietnamese restaurant, the Hungry Buddha in Curtin, Ramas at Pearce along with the Ethiopian just next door to it, and getting a snack at Dobinson's in the city centre.

Getting around

Public transport is limited and somewhat inconvenient. There are a large number of bike paths and lanes to explore the neighbourhood, and down into Queanbeyan. A car is usually the best option.

Other things to note

Gas hot water to warm the chilliest toes.
Children welcome. We can provide a range of toys if needed, and have outside playground equipment.
We live in a family home, and have four children aged from 7 down to 13 months. Noise can filter down during the day but once the children go to bed the noise should be non-existent except in the rarest of events.

Check in is anytime after 12PM (noon)

If you have any points to discuss, please approach us directly. We are looking to make people's experiences enjoyable and we like opportunities and feedback that help us to make our listing better.
Since listing this unit we have received feedback on potential improvements. One guest suggested more cooking implements and we have purchased a portable oven with hotplates and put more pots and pans in.
Another guest said that the garden was unkept and unappealing. We have cleaned up the yard, and will do so at regular intervals and are planning to put in more flower beds and ornaments to spruce it up.
We provide spray for spiders and bugs, but prefer to catch and release at a safe distance so that all creatures remain safe, insects are controlled and we remain as chemical-free as possible.

It was a great place with all we needed. Katrina was kind enough to put up a porta cot for our 5 month old. Unfortunately we didn't meet Katrina as we were travelling from Sydney to Melbourne and arrived late at night and left before dawn.

Katrina's place is a fantastic place to stay. It was very close to local shops and it was in a very central location to get to Canberra. Would definitely come back

I am well-travelled mother of four looking to connect with new people and learning about new cultures and experiences.

I love travelling (visited 52 countries and counting), kids, learning, visiting different parts of Australia (every State) and getting out and active in Canberra and surrounds.

I am very family oriented, have four lovely, boisterous and happy kids, and a loving husband, who reads a lot but everybody has one vice :-)

I look forward to meeting you and helping you enjoy your stay with us in any way possible.
