About the Homestay
A warm, large and safe external bungalow approximately 5 by 3.7 metres. I am looking for a student who is warm, friendly, and doesn't mind a dog pet. The fee covers all bills, a fortnightly clean of the house and room and internet. The total fee is $950 per calendar month.
You will live in a part-time family home with a working female (me) and a medium friendly sized dog Pepper - pictured. I have two older sons, one is 14 years old and the other 20 yrs old. I am an artist and teacher and pretty easy going.
The house is large, 5 bedrooms, two bathroom, and an additional toilet. The kitchen is large, the garden also and it can be quite private. There are two rooms for homestay, one inside the other the bungalow pictured. Both are secured. I only take long term bookings over 3 months.
The location is connected to the local shops and gym — The house is very close to La Trobe University and Northlands Shopping Center. Both can be reached by regular bus timetables or bike. The bus takes 5 minutes and the bike 10-12 minutes. The house is very near Darebin creek. The furniture displayed in the room is there for you to use and an additional desk, desk light, monitor, and queen bed.
The 251, 250, and express 350 buses leave regularly from the adjoining street to Melbourne City, with many additional buses to the Preston and Rosanna train stations, or you can catch the 86 Tram from the crn of Murray road and Lower Plenty Road. It is 25 mins to town by car (off peak). I like to ride my bike to Preston or Rosanna stations, which is 10 mins.
If you have any questions please PM me. I look forward to hearing from you!
