About the Homestay
Our homestay is managed by husband and wife -Alan and Wendy. Our kids have grown up and moved out of home and we welcome new homestayers to our newly renovated four bedroom, two storey house in Thornbury.
We both are available to provide assistance with the house. We have a large shared kitchen area and two living room spaces. The bedrooms give privacy to our homestayers as they are located upstairs.
