I cannot absolutely understand why a basement should be leased and uploaded this lease information on homestay.com.
I was glad I decided to stay with Konrad in Melbourne as he and his family made me very welcome. Konrad is very helpful and knows a lot about the area, Melbourne, Australia and the world and we had a lot of chats about many different things. The accommodation was just what I was looking for and was spacious and comfortable. As it is situated right next to the house the toilet and kitchen/fridge are easily accessible. It was nice to sit in the garden in the sun and have breakfast, dinner or tea. The bus stops at the end of the road and you can either go into Box Hill central for the shops, amenities or the train into the city or go the other way and get the tram into the city. The tram stop is only a 15 minutes walk from Konrad's to Wattle Park. I would fully recommend anyone to stay with Konrad and his family. Thanks for the great time Konrad.
The place is clean and tidy , whilst Konrad is a friendly host providing me all the convenience . A pleasant to stay.
