Other things to note
We have a new whale watching lookout in the forest above the cliffs.
Please keep any smoking activities outside on the deck or in the breeze way and place butts in ashtrays provided.
No parties and no excessive noise after 10 pm.
The pond is not fenced off from the house, so please supervise young children closely.
I try to be here to greet my guests, or at least make arrangements so that you can settle in to your place. I am always happy to answer questions or offer assistance. I found that making breakfast didn't really work with my schedule and that of my guests, so now I just provide starter supplies so that you can make your own breakfast at a time of your choosing.
Hi - I am an artist living in beautiful Black Head. I paint, draw and share these skills with others through workshops in my studio and local colleges. I also enjoy playing folk music, my instruments being voice, flute, tin whistle and concertina.
I moved to Black Head in 2011 to design and build my house which includes guest quarters separated by a breezeway.
My favorite city in the whole world is Venice; no cars, just water transport and walking, getting hopelessly lost and loving every minute of it. I stayed in a tent just out of Venice, at Camping Jolly for 5 months in 2007. That made it affordable.
I have done a fair bit of traveling and I enjoy returning some of the hospitality that I have received over the years.
