Interaction with guests
We will not be present during your stay as we will most likely be holidaying. We will arrange a contact person who will hand you the keys and show you around the house. Should you have any questions we are available by email or phone.
Other things to note
We have recently purchased a new Jura fully auto coffee machine. Provide your own beans and away you go. Cappuccino in the morning.
Behave as you would expect someone to behave in your home. Be careful with the glassware, the surface of the kitchen table and no pens on the leather lounges.
Please no smoking inside.
I am married to Jean and we travel regularly. Our daughter is an oenologist in Tuscany and we visit Italy as often as we can to visit her. We are both full time teachers in private colleges in Melbourne. We enjoy cooking, eating out, watching our AFL team Carlton play football. We enjoy visiting new places and like Europe in particular. We enjoyed a trip at Christmas visiting Liverpool in UK, also the Cotswolds staying with friends for Christmas and Paris for the new year week to celebrate Jeans 60 th birthday. We then finished with 5 days in Nice. Have recently returned from a trip to Penang and Singapore over Easter. We work to get the money to travel as it is our passion. Recently went to the Bruce Springsteen concert in Melbourne and thought it was unbeatable.
As a guest we are conscious of respecting your house. We have a high standard of cleanliness and are quiet.
