A modern brick house w/ 4bedrooms , rumpus, pergola & a backyard garden. We love singing and an active member of our parish choir. Our daughter still lives w/ us , my husband is a chef & I'm an accounts Payable/gen cashier, both working in the same hotel in Wollongong. Our friends frequent the house because they find that we are accommodating and always have special foods to share, likewise fresh harvest. We consider our guests as part of our family and we look and take good care of them.

Additional Info

from time to time, we allow them to cook their special food to share with the family and do the cleaning up afterwards.

    Myself and 3 friends stayed with Maria after the Yours & Owls music festival in Woolongong. Maria was super nice and gave us a free lift to festival because she was going that way for some errands anyway, which was super lovely! We didn’t really use the facilities at her house to the extent we could have eg: having a shower or eating breakfast because we felt a bit unsure and a bit uncomfortable to do that. For the time that we were there, we spent it cooped up in the bedroom because we didn’t really feel like we were allowed anywhere else. But all in all, we needed a place to sleep for the night and that’s what we got. I would recommend this place to anyone who needs the same. Thank you Maria

    I have to thank Maria, Danny and Dolly. They made me feel like home, driving me around, cooking dinner for me, always ready to help out in any ways.
    The house is close to shops and restaurants and the train station is few minutes walk.
    Thanks again.

    Maria Linda is a very friendly person loves to talk to people. She took us for a small city tour. Showed us tourist attractions nearby which I liked a lot. As I am an Indian, there's not much Indian food nearby :(

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 250 $£€ for longer term bookings) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.

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.
