We are warm and friendly hosts and will feel honored to welcome you to our beautiful home. Combination of old world charm and Asian ambiance. Separate entrance, 2 large rooms ( lounge and bedroom), kitchen area, bathroom, veranda and backyard. Central location. I live in the front of the home however because you have your own entrance to the self contained back section of the home, you can have complete privacy. I usually come out and introduce myself during your stay in. Self check in.

The space
Three large rooms and lots of screened windows. . The lounge room has a couch, double sofa bed, television, tables and chairs. There is an alcoved area that houses the kitchen space which has a microwave, small fridge, toaster and sandwich maker. On the covered veranda, a couple of steps from the kitchen area is an outdoor cooking area with an electric double cooktop and a large electric fry pan. This means you can cook in the fresh air and your living space doesn't contain cooking smells. It's how many cooking areas are arranged in Asia. The double burner gas barbecue is next to the cooktop. Pot, pans, plates and cutlery are supplied. The bathroom has an additional tub and taps for filling the kettle and washing the dishes The bedroom has a king size bed, hanging rack and dressing table. The bathroom is bright and airy and beautifully tiled . The bathroom houses the toilet, shower, basin, antique brass fittings, a marble topped wooden dresser, authentic cement tub, and a washing machine. High ceilings and hardwood timber floors. French doors lead out onto a covered timber veranda with a table and chairs, the barbecue, cooking area, a day bed and comfy seating. Lots of sunshine, trees and birds. Attached to home but separate entrance. There are 10 steps at the rear of the home up to your entrance. If there is difficulty with the steps an alternative access may be able to be arranged (with 2 steps) however this would need to be arranged prior to booking. There is a fan, heater in winter, an iron and ironing board, hairdryer, fire extinguisher, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and screened windows. Lots of windows in every room allow for great ventilation and breezes.

Coffs Harbour, New South Wales, Australia

Quiet and welcoming. High ceilings, lots of character and spacious. Our home is nearly 100 years old which means we are situated in a well established residential precinct, close to the town centre. There is a supermarket down the road which can be reached by strolling through the park. There is a wonderful children's playground just down the road. Open the French Doors in the morning and let the sun stream into your lounge room or move out onto the veranda for breakfast. Enjoy a barbecue, perhaps an afternoon snooze on the day bed or recline in a comfy arm chair. The home has a warm and welcoming ambience.

I am a fun loving, friendly and hard working mother of a grown up daughter. I am easy to get a long with and enjoy meeting new people. I have travelled extensively and have enjoyed the hospitalities of families throughout the world. I worked in hospitality in my younger years and completed a university degree in the human services as a mature age student. I now work part-time in areas associated with my studies. My main interests are my daughter, family, friends, people, my home, travel and cooking. I love hot climates and the beach. My favourite movie is Out of Africa with Meryl Streep and Robert Redford.
