About the Homestay
My partner and I are renting our spare bedroom for any travellers, professionals or students alike! The apartment is a great size and has a large lounge area, separate dining, shared bathroom with bath and 2 courtyards (one at the front and one at the back). The room itself is not large however has a built in wardrobe that should be able to fit all of your belongings during your stay. My partner Scott (age 30) & I (age 27) work rotating hours so we are often out on weekends and some week nights so you may find you have the place to yourself at times, however we are always available to answer any questions or provide any advice should you need it! We like to cook at home and have family and friends around which we like to include our guests in should they be interested. We have a little puppy that will also be sharing the space with us! He is a Cavoodle so small, allergy friendly and very gentle. If you have any questions about this breed please feel free to ask!
