Old house with cracked walls and shared bathroom: I've tried to make it comfortable : good bed, wifi, kitchen and laundry facilities, nice garden, bikes available. Please read house rules before you book: especially first timers. Guest room specifically set up for AirBNB and takes a maximum of two. I don't let the home out while I'm away or take multiple bookings. The neighbourhood is great - many facilities nearby, easy car free access to city, beach,Showgrounds and Belair national park.
There would be few locations in Adelaide as convenient as this. Exactly 3km from the GPO (city centre). Easy access to tram for beach or city, train and bus. Walking distance to the showgrounds. Tennis courts and swimming pool within walking distance (rackets provided). Area is flat and bikes are provided (10min cycle to the city). Supermarket, pub, numerous cheap restuarants, sex shop, crystal shop, pole dancing boutique, vegan supermarket all within easy walking distance.
Private access to your room. Bathroom is shared. Tea, coffee and simple breakfast provided, I also supply cooking oil, laundry detergent and other basic things that are a nuisance to have to buy when you're travelling. Guests have access to the lounge/sitting room and a garden dining area as well. There is also a good quality washing machine and iron. Wifi is not unlimited but the 200G/month limit has never been an issue.
Interaction with guests
I can help with directions, recommendations etc. The dog is friendly,quiet and small. He is walked twice daily which prevents any doggy smell around the house. However, he tends to tolerate, rather than like, small children. It is difficult to exclude the dog from the house so this may not be the best place for people with an aversion to dogs or who are travelling with toddlers.
I can take guests on a free, 2 hour bike tour (riding 90min) to point out some of Adelaide's highlights and reveal the safest bike access around the city. Bikes supplied.
Other things to note
Bathroom is shared. Please let me know if you have any special breakfast requirements.
Please indicate approximately what time you wish to check in- 4pm is my default check in as this is when I'm home from work. I will always try to accommodate earlier check ins if I can.
There is no smoking permitted in the house. Please let me know if you smoke.
If you want to conduct video calls etc please do this between 6.00am until 11pm unless by prior arrangement. If I receive booking requests after 10pm they will not be dealt with until at least 7am the next day.
Pets by negotiation.
I really appreciate it if guests tell me approximately what time they will arrive (or even when they will know) as I Iike to be here to show them around . I can make alternative arrangements if this is not possible. Check in and check out times negotiable.
I am usually happy to take people new to Air BNB (no reviews yet), I will feel reassured if there is plenty of information about yourself/your party, you have clear photos and there's a reasonable amount of notice. I also like it when people give some indication they've read the house rules/profile.
