My place is close to public transport and the city centre. You’ll love my place because of the views, the ambiance, and the people. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travellers.

It is a large house with open plan living and a pool. I am a happy host who is willing to show you around and cook for you at negotiable rates.

Mara was a fantastic host. The location was perfect for me as I did not want to be in the center of the hustle and bustle but close enough to it. The bedroom, bathroom, and house are spacious with fabulous views. It's best to have a car if you want to move around a bit, alternatives are Uber, taxis and also buses into the city center. Bus stop is about approx. 15-20 mins walk; Mulgrave Road has best options for frequency [bus #'s (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)]. You can try bus #133 from a different location than Mulgrave Road, make sure you get to the right stop for the city center direction. It is less frequent so check the schedule. Major shopping mall [Stockland] and grocery stores about 15-20 mins walk; also on Mulgrave Road. Note that Uber also has an official pick up point at the domestic airport terminal for arrivals. Internet speed was good. Everything was perfect.

Mara is a very nice person. She treated me like a family. The house was very clean and comfortable. I had a good time in Australia due to Mala. I want to come again.

Mara was a fantastic host! She was diligent with her response times, picked me up from the airport, and even cooked for me that evening. After traveling for 2 days, there was no better place than Mara's. She was hospitable, clean, and overall a pleasure to talk to - OH, and the beautiful views from her home are quite magnifiant and peaceful as well.

Mara was a very warm and welcoming lady who went over and above to accomodate our needs during our stay at her beautiful home. The house is spacious and has a very relaxed, chilled vibe. I would definitely recommend staying here. It was everything we needed and more.

I am a 62 year young woman who is passionate about food, wine, the outdoors and maintaining wonderful relationships.

I live in one of the best places in the world - it is cheap, has fabulous things to do and is surrounded by mountains and the Great Barrier Reef. There is always somewhere to go in this area - gorges, waterfalls, lakes, markets and the sea.

Have travelled alot to Europe, lots of countries in Asia, Canada, America and Africa. My next big destination is South America.

Love meeting people and figuring out what makes them tick.
