Hi my name is Norina and I have a three bedroom home in Officer which I share with my partner Steve a two beautiful cats Scarlett & Molly. My property is newly built in a quiet residential area & very close to public transport.
I have one bedroom available at the front of the house facing the garden and a second room available towards the rear of the house which also receives plenty of natural light.
The kitchen, lounge and meals areas are all open plan, bright and spacious with an adjoining outdoor area.
My home is not far from native bushland and I spend a lot of my free time in the outdoors, hiking and cycling.
I am very well travelled and love meeting people from different cultures and backgrounds.

    Comfortable and a nice clean place. Excellent host. Peaceful and away from traffic noises with easy access to local conveniences under 5 minutes drive, with major shopping centre (fountain gate) only 15 minutes drive away.

    John was a great guest. I saw very little of him however when he was around he was always friendly & polite. He was very neat & respectful & I would highly recommend him.

    I was honoured to be Norina's first guest via Homestay. She is the perfect hostess and I couldn't have asked for a more homely atmosphere. She comes highly recommended, very personable, well-travelled and knowledgeable about her area and Melbourne. I will be a return guest in her lovely home if the need arises. Well done Norina

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
