As a family with young children this place was perfect. We could cater for the kids (and ourselves!), put them to bed and relax in the warm living room. The location was close to shops, restaurants and museums in the city centre. We also liked the way the apartment was set up for recycling and composting.

Barbara is a lovely host and helped us out with her flexible approach. The apartment is lovely - beautiful set up, quality furnishings, covered parking, very comfortable in every way. And very environmentally friendly. It's an easy stroll to the shops or for coffee and a lovely quiet area. Made our stay so much nicer to come home to the apartment.

Barbara's apartment was very well located for a brief family holiday in Canberra. We left our car in the underground carpark and rode Canberra's buses to all the major sites - no need to pay for parking or worry about time limits. The Dickson shops aren't far away and they are very popular with lots of Asian restaurants to choose from. The apartment was very quiet and beds were comfortable. It included everything we needed with detailed instructions for all appliances. Key pad access to parking and the apartment was extremely convenient and easy - no fiddling with temperamental locks. Thanks, Barbara.

Apartment is in lovely leafy quiet street. Once the light rail is built Dickson will have great access to the city. Currently you need a car to get around in Canberra!

I was born in St Paul, Minnesota, educated in California, grew up in Japan and now live in Canberra. My husband and I have built a small block of 7 apartments that we run as serviced apartments. It has been our pleasure to host many delightful guests. Thank you to all our guests for making our Airbnb journey so interesting and rewarding.
