An original Canberra red brick home on a wide, tree lined street close to all Inner Sth happenings. The lake, markets, cafes& bars & national institutions. Train station within walking distance if I can't collect you and bus stop out front. A simple and nurturing home boasting the timber tones of original Canberra with a few quirks. A bathroom, small living room and kitchen compliment your room. I am not home a lot so please treat it as yours. Free parking, a host that cares but no teddy bears.

The space

Firstly, welcome, thank you for considering my space.

My home is an original 3 bedroom red brick based in old Narrabundah. This listing is for two double bed guest rooms. You'll have access to a separate toilet and bathroom as well as full use of the remainder of the home. It's an oldie. Some say it's nurturing with a daggy kitchen. Some say sooo comfortable with that old timber and brick feel. Some even like the quirky way to open Nanas fridge with a chisel!!

There's a small deck facing the sprawling grassed yard. You can mow it if you like:) The wide street with 2 elms out the front give a peaceful feel.

The bathroom would hardly suit a footy team. It's small, but the bath is deep.

I happen to like creaky floors and the history they exude. Maybe you like peaceful energy . Maybe your not into polished marble benches and white interiors where the fear of breaking or marking something somehow eats away at total letting go.

You can do that here, just let go as your springboard to whatever Canberra has to offer you or you it.

Free wifi
TV in lounge room
And a host that will engage with you as much or as little as you wish depending where I am.

Keys will be left in a secret spot I'll share later.

Guest access

The whole house is yours except one room is closed as it's my sons when they stay.

I will be staying in the site shed out the back but I'm hardly home. Please, please, please, if me sleeping in the site shed in the back yard changes your experience or perception of staying do tell me. I can sleep elsewhere quiet easily.

Dane's place is very well located, and pretty much as Dane describes it (very original). Dane was a great host and well organized - checkin etc was very easy and convenient. It will be a nice and inexpensive place to stay once the garden and yard have had some TLC.

I've stayed in quite a few Airbnb's as well as hosting and I am always impressed by the unique personality and welcome of each destination. Staying at Dane's was like being invited to your family home and imbibing your history and heritage with the familiar marks of the way Nana or Auntie has always done things and immediately feeling safe and at home. The warmth of home and hospitality are palpable. All that is needed is available for a very comfortable "visit". Thank you, Dane, for sharing your lovely home with us. Anne, Mark and Elaine.

Had a very nice stay, the house furniture is a bit old but very confy!! The owner is also very neighborly

Dane’s Place is in an excellent location and was clean and tidy. The beds were comfortable and beautifully made. Dane was flexible and responsive via message with very detailed information about the location and house. We had a comfortable stay and would recommend this house to anyone visiting Canberra

As much as you like but I won't be around much. Being flexible though I can help out where possible

About Dane

Thank you for considering using my home as your base in Canberra. You are contributing to me bettering my life after some significant life leverage.

A father to two teenage boys ( they won't be with me when you are though ) and a man on a mission.

I rent the property and have permission to Air BnB from the owner.

I'm just starting out with Air BnB so I'm counting on your feedback along the way..

I will do my very best to make your pre booking and stay in Canberra as easy as possible. You want all niggling distractions gone so you can play or work naturally.

Currently I'm driving for Uber so will not be around the house a lot but always on hand to help. Just a phone call away. If I'm away in Melbourne then I will have support nearly as good as me :)

I'm an earthed soul pretty much interested in most things but have soft spots for blues music, philosophy and metaphysics, life stories, chooks, entrepreneurship and change in general.

I look forward to meeting you.
