Indoor fireplaceThis is one of few homes in this area that has this feature.

The hut was going to be my fixit shed, but due to demand, I put a single bed foam mattress in there & then added another foam mattress to one of the big ledges, free to air t.v., coffee jug, spring water, etc. .... Guests use main house bathrooms

Ellie was a very warm, welcoming, generous host with a big heart. She made me laugh, and feel very at home immediately. I enjoyed learning about freeganism, her lifestyle - and it was enjoyable meeting the laid back folks around the house. I would advise that this Airbnb is more …

The host is very nice and welcoming. But The bedroom is very small and only can stay one guy. Feel some terror and I decided to leave

If everyone lived like Ellie there would be no world poverty. She leaves no ecological footprint and has a freegan lifestyle which I admire. Having said that I believe the room is a little overpriced we paid $71 for a treehouse and the alternative double bed room was very claust…

Response from Ellie:
Hi Sean ! Thanks for the positive feedback ... I have not listed the room w the dbl bed atm, and it is small, but I think the main reason people are booking thru Airbnb izzat they want to save money on accommodation on their travels ... The bed is really comfy, and u get WiFi, a friendly home to stay in, and can cook and use any available foodstuffs ... Private homes are not a hotel or motel ... when u come into a person's home, just enjoy their individuality ... Its a one-off opportunity to experience how THEY do things ... don't try to compare it w hotel or motel digs ... You needed something in a hurry, and were glad to grab anything ... A tent and sleeping bag has drawbacks too, which is why u booked a room ... A backpackers is not as private, and costs $35 to $40 a night p.p. .... I only ask $60 for two people in the same room .... Cheers ...

Despite the fact that Elli is the most welcoming and friendly person, we have to point out that the hut is basically a garden shelter and way too small for hosting two persons. Even for one it might be not big enough. In the end we didn't stay with Ellie after we saw the accommod…

Yes ... So sorry that only the hut was available ... You guys were tall people too ... Just that time of year when its hard to get a bed anywhere ! Yes, people lose their first nights accommodation if they don't cancel 5 days before .... All the best to u !!

I am a "night owl" as they say ... so I get up late ... So requests for accommodation made between 4 a.m. and 11.00 a.m. may not be "accepted" until I wake up and look at my mobile messages ... I am usually up by 11.30 or 12.30 ... So don't panic if u have made a request during …
