This house is close to the city (10 mins by Uber, 20-25 mins by bus).
In these rooms the guest will find many comforts like:
+ a Smart TV including Netflix
+ a DVD player with lots of DVD's
+ a fridge for drinks and food
+ individual heating and cooling
+ an electric blanket.
+ fast Wifi
+ Some rooms have a microwave and there is also a microwave in the kitchen

+ There is filtered water in the kitchen to fill up your drink bottles for the day. The small lever at the base of the kitchen mixer tap dispenses filtered water. The normal lever dispenses normal tap water.

Often you won't see anyone as everyone seems to do their own thing but I am always available by phone or text if you need something.

This house is like a mini hotel except you have the use of the kitchen.

Everyone has a key to the front door and a key to their room. People are busy doing their own thing. You may see the others or you might not. If you see them you can have a chat - if you don't see anyone don't be disturbed or feel uncomfortable about this, people are busy going about their business or relaxing.

The prices I have put up is for one person staying in a room. If there is a second person there will need to be an extra charge of $10 per night to cover extra utility costs.

There is a $45 cleaning fee for short stays and $25 a week for long stays as I have a cleaner that comes and cleans the common areas like the bathroom and toilet, hallway and kitchen. There is no slot to put this in so it can be added to the total Like on other sites so I mention it here.

I have a strict cancellation policy. No refunds. You need to check if you want to extend your stay as I advertise on many sites and often have back to back bookings, and you need to check if you want to shorten your stay. A months notice is required if you wish to cancel your booking.
Have a great time, and have a nice stay,
Cheers,
Renate.

About the Area

Our House is located in the northside of Canberra not far from the ANU and the city. It is a quiet and safe suburb. I am not aware of anything going on here that is untoward. The bus stop in is a few minute walk from the house and transport around Canberra is quite easy. I love having guest because my kids have grown up and left home so I like having people coming and going because I work from home.

    I would have appreciated a five star rating from you because I give all those things others do not give. Most rooms have their own TV and DVD player or smart TV with netflix. Air con and heating in each individual room, a bar fridge for your food and drinks, some rooms have a microwave and the bathroom has underfloor heating so it is always nice and cosy in winter. All the best, Renate.

    Renate's place definitely felt like a home away from home. She was very accommodating and extremely helpful when I was making the move to Canberra. My room had all the creature comforts (and I think I've got TV envy now!) you could need. It's in such a good location too. The hospitality that was extended to me was truly appreciated. I can't recommend Renate's place highly enough.

    My first trip to Canberra was made ecstatic by Renate's exceptionally warm hospitality. Renate is a very warm host. Time with her was very comfortable. House is indeed equipped for a short and long term stay. Renate you not only made me feel welcomed in your home but also in Canberra.
    Thank You!

    Good place to stay.
    I stayed for two weeks. It’s close to all amenities. All four rooms have individual tv fridge desk aircon but no widows no fresh air. Enough parking. Owners stay on site and share kitchen and bathroom.

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.
