The Space

This is a beautiful old house with wooden interior giving it a cosy feel. It has a logburner and a heat pump so is toasty warm in the winter, and plenty of windows to let in the light. As it is surrounded by native bush there is always birdsong in the air. A great place to take some time out for a well deserved break.

Guest Access

I live in the house so will be sharing the bathroom and kitchen. The bathroom is not fancy but is functional, with a shower over the bath. I have an old cat, she spends most of her days asleep in the sun so there may be some cat hair about.

Interaction with Guests

I'm happy to interact with guests but will mostly leave you to enjoy your stay in piece and quiet.

The Neighborhood

The property is adjacent to a native bush reserve which takes about 20 minutes to walk around. The view from the top is well worth it.

Getting Around

The area is remote, located about 7 minutes drive from Springfield. There are no shops here so please don't expect food. You are welcome to use the kitchen to make your own meals. Please note this is not a B&B and breakfast is not provided.

Other Things to Note

Parking is available outside the gate; it is a dead end street so there is very little traffic. The house operates on tank water and while there is plenty please try not to waste any.

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
