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 a double bed guest room. (See other listings for entire house or smaller double room) You'll have access to a shared toilet and bathroom but given I'm not home much it's hardly sharing :)

You'll have full use of the remainder of the home. It's an oldie. Some say 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

You'll have access to everything!!!! Except the 2 other bedrooms. One is my 2 sons who stay with me when no guests are present and the other isa smaller double bedroom

Interaction with guests

I live a flexible life driving for uber and working on other entrepreneurial ideas. I'll do my best to meet you but if it's not workable I'll be communicating all the way.

I can come home very late after work but please, don't worry about noise in the morning. I'm not fussed at all.

Other things to note

If there is another guest booked then I'll throw myself out and sleep in the 'Site office" situated in the backyard.

Don't forget this listing is pet friendly but if another guest is present then I'd need to check theres no issues with them first.

Dane was very communicative and quick to respond to queries, and the house was very clean and the bed nice and comfortable. Good quiet residential area.

We had a very enjoyable overnight stay with Dane. Accomodation very clean and comfortable. Dane was away but made arrangements very easy. Would certainly stay again and would recommend.

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.
