Where you’ll be

Castlemaine, Victoria, Australia

Castlemaine is a funky, artsy town with great live music, food and art. It's an old gold mining town but is alive and vital.
I prefer Togg's cafe for coffee but Saff's is also good and of course, Bella's for wood-fired pizza. The Railway Hotel has good meals and is a 5 minute walk away. The Theatre Royal is a beautiful old theatre that has movies and great bands. It's nice to just take a wander around town on foot and poke your nose into places. The Castlemaine art gallery gives a really delicious slice of art (just enough for good digestion) and has a history section downstairs. In the summer, the Good Table has a funky bar happening up on its verandah.
The Botannical gardens is a lovely walk and has a good kids' playground.
Within a 20-30 minutes drive, there's Lavendula lavender farm and cafe, the Great Stupa in Marong (an enormous Buddhist temple), historic Maldon and Hepburn Springs if you feel like a spa.

When we've used Airbnb when travelling, we've always enjoyed those places that felt like they were 'ours' for the duration. You know, a sense of privacy and not having to be sociable with anyone if you don't feel like it, a place where we can make a bit of noise (we're musicians). I personally liked those places that 'had everything'--good beds, nice linen, well equipped kitchen (with more than just the bare essentials)--and all those things you didn't (and couldn't possibly) bring ( bathroom things, umbrella, cooking condiments, iron, music, games, DVDs). I love that I can offer space for dogs too. I've always travelled with my dog, which can be problematic to say the least. The house is essentially ready to live in--it's not just a rental property. So enjoy it (and please look after it).

During your stay
I live in Melbourne so I won't be there but feel free to contact me by mobile and I'll fill you in on everything. I have friends and neighbours in town who will gladly be of help if needed.
