The space

Situated in Ringwood, approx 30 mins from the city, the home is central to most areas in and around Melbourne. The room is modern, bright and comfortable. with an adjacent bathroom and toilet for your exclusive use. There is a double wardrobe, shelves and a TV. Tea and coffee making facilities are provided in your room. Access to family room, courtyard and and living areas of home. Excellent public transport, shopping and restaurants within walking distance.

Guest access

You are invited to share the living areas of the home. There is no access to the kitchen, my bedroom, study and bathroom. You will have access to the laundry (by negotiation) and courtyard . Cooking facilities are not provided but refrigerator storage is available in the adjoining garage. Although I do not have a dryer the clothes line is under a covered courtyard and clothes air dry quickly. In winter damp clothes can be aired over heater vents in bathroom and bedroom. Laundry of any sort is not permitted in the bathroom. Hair colouring is not permitted at any time.

Interaction with guests

I will provide you with a continental breakfast each morning of your stay. I respect your privacy and boundaries but if you wish to chat I would welcome that. If you need anything else please ask. I am able to give you information about travel, local facilities, places of interest both in the city and the local area.

Other things to note

I do have an old dog and two cats. The cats have their own area of the house with a cat run so they will not worry guests. The dog sleeps most of the day and is not vicious but, as she is almost blind, she will bark, and sometimes growl, until she gets your scent.

Marianne was a wonderful and accommodating host, I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone else who wants a well kept home with a lovely host. I will definitely be staying there again if I get another chance. Comfy bed, great atmosphere, and most of all it was nice and warm during the freezing Melbourne weather. Thanks again Marianne

Hello and Welcome to my listing. I would love to host you.
I am warm and friendly and love meeting new people. I have a deep respect for all cultures, backgrounds, ages and faiths.
I am a loving Mum to my 3 sons and their partners and a doting Nana to 7 grandchildren. I also love animals, especially my 15 year old dog and my two cats.
My professional background is as an Educator and a Civil Celebrant and both careers have fostered very positive relationships and brought me into contact with some amazing people.
I love classical music, reading, art-house films, theatre and concerts. I also play golf and am trying to learn how to play bowls. Next year I hope to rejoin a choir.
I love travel, both In Australia and overseas. Last year I travelled from London across Europe to Budapest, then back to Paris via Italy.From Paris a friend and I drove to Sans Sebastian, staying at bnb's along the way, before travelling through Spain. In every place I met friendly, helpful and lovely people and, it is this experience, that has encouraged me to become a host myself.
As a host I respect other's privacy, boundaries and property while, at the same time, being helpful, friendly and accommodating. I go out of my way to make sure you have a comfortable and enjoyable stay.

My life motto would be that we all share a common humanity and that we should treat others as we would like to be treated.
