Sunny room in cosy, double storey house close to all amenities: train/bus services & local shops are 3 min walk away. Bayside beaches are 20 mins walking distance. Great leafy suburb, close to everything & 15 mins train ride to city centre.
The house is an older style home with many original details still intact. It has all modern conveniences and is very cosy and quirky. The house does require a little attention, but the bedroom has been recently painted and has a glorious view of the Elsternwick skyline & the perfect space to read with the warmth of the sun streaming through the window.
Accès des voyageurs
Guests can access most of the public spaces (dining & deck areas) within reason as it is a shared household.
Échanges avec les voyageurs
I will be available in the house (as I live here), and can help you with whatever you need. The bedroom space is private. It is a share household, so expect to interact with 2 other charming household members on occasion.
Common sense should be your guide as to treating the space respectfully. Everything is negotiable, so do not be afraid to communicate your needs with me. Please respect that this is my home, and behave accordingly.
• Check in time can be flexible, but usually between 1 & 4pm
• Not a child friendly household (I love kids, but space is not set up to accommodate them)
• No parties or events
• No smoking (though you can smoke outside)
• Please clean up after yourself if cooking
• Please lock up securely if no one else is home
• No extra guests staying the night
You will be staying in a fully furnished bedroom filled with lots of natural light, a double bed & built-in robes. My home is a cosy older style double storey townhouse (bedrooms are upstairs), close to all amenities: train & bus services, & local shops are a 3-5 minute walk away. Bayside beaches (Elwood & Brighton) are within 20 minutes walking distance from home. If you prefer not to live in the heart of the city, with easy access into town (15 minute train ride), then this is the place for you. My preference is that you look & clean up after yourself as a valued member in the household. You will be sharing with 2 independent, busy women that love a discussion, sharing an occasional glass of wine, either working, studying or both, & leading active lives.
About your host: I am active in life with many pursuits including
walking, running, reading, writing, teaching, playing guitar (badly), singing, watching movies, & doing photography. I work in academia and research; I consult & educate; and generally enjoy philosphising about life & meeting new people. I enjoy a good chat, sharing laughs, and I have a wry sense of humour. I also love a variety of cuisines, as long the food has lots of flavour, & enjoy sharing food & an occasional glass of wine. I would like to travel more (last year I made it to Nice, Monaco & Italy), & I'm making an effort to see more destinations in this fine country. I have an easygoing nature, & will endeavour to make your stay as comfortable as possible. If you have any special requirements, please let me know, as I am open to negotiation & prefer clear, honest communication.
I look forward to meeting prospective AirBnB guests!
