About the Homestay
You'll be staying with a mid thirties professional female, a dog and a cat in the blue chip cosmopolitan suburb of Hawthorne 15 minutes from the CBD. You'll be close to a beautiful park where you can go jogging, do some yoga and even catch an AFL game. It's also great for people watching. You'll be close to cafes, cinemas and restaurants with public transport on your doorstep, although I recommend the ferry, which is a 10 minute walk away.
Your host is well traveled and speaks French and little bit of Brazilian Portuguese. Your room is quite large and spacious with a separate study area in the sun room if you need to work. High speed internet available so you can stream Netflix to your heart's desire or enjoy the leafy surrounds of the yard at sunset.
