About the Homestay
My name is Sandy, I have a diploma of counselling and was working in an office as an assistant coordinator for a company called Blue Care but have just been made redundent, so l now have my own driving/chauffeur company and l also drive for Uber.
I like walking and swimming and the beach.
I have a beautiful new home with a pool, you have your own private entrance off your queen size bedroom with a queen bed, which has just been fully renovated and looks amazing with beautiful views of a bush like setting, as the house is on nearly 2 acres but still in the suburb of Parkwood, where the Hospital and Griffith University are, you have your own television and there are 2 bathrooms.
I supply a light breakfast and occasionally l will cook for all the guests in my home.
I have met some wonderful people from all over the world and even if l won the lottery, l would still open my home up to people from all nationalities. ..
I am very friendly and l can put you in touch with my previous homestay guest's if you would like a review about my homestay. ...

Sandy was a great host, we had no shortage of conversation, loads to talk about as we connected well. She prepared a dinner for everyone staying there on the first night we stayed. This was a nice way to meet the other guests.
I was fortunate to have my daughter pick me up with her car so public transport wasn’t an issue.
I felt comfortable there so definitely will stay again.
This has to be one of the best accommodation I have stayed at. Very affordable, but at the same time you get a lot for the price.
Sandy the host is one of the nicest, people I have met. She was very helpful in guiding me to an event I needed to go to.
I would recommend this place to anybody who loves a nice quiet relaxing atmosphere with beautiful scenery.
