    Our stay at seton's house was awesome. He is a really kind and nice man, full of humor and energy, who made us feel just like home. During our stay we met his family and other guest, making our stay even more enjoyable. He is very respectful and is very prone to help you with any doubt you may have about the house, Brisbane or Australia.

    Thank you Seton! :)

    There are too many good things to say about Seton and his house. First of all, Seton is open minded, interesting person. House is amazing, very good location, everything very close! It was nice to meet him first in Australia.

    Seton provided a great place to land in Brisbane, close to public transport, shops and cinema, and an easy 15 minute train trip to the CBD. The room was spacious and I enjoyed meeting housemates from other parts of the world.
