Situated within walking distance to shops and cafés this house is sunny, in a quiet neighborhood and ideally located.

The space

I have a cosy and sunny 2 BR cottage with an open space kitchen and living area. Because I work a lot and spend quite little time at home you could have the place mostly to yourself.
The room is quite simple but with a very comfortable Queen bed and ample wardrobe.
All bed linen and towels supplied.
Shared bathroom and kitchen-living open space.
I also have a nice backyard which we can enjoy almost all year round.

Guest access

All the house: bathroom, kitchen, living area, laundry, garden and of course their own room.

Interaction with guests

This is my home, so I live in and I am here most days. I work a lot, but I still try to spend some time home :-) but you will really only see me mornings (if you're up early) and evenings.
I am a chatty, lively and very sociable person so I am always happy to share a cup of tea, a meal, or a movie with the guests. On the other hand if you are tired, had a big day or are after some me and quiet time, I'll try my best to accommodate you and be as discreet as possible. Depends on you, either work for me =D.

Other things to note

I go to une everyday so if you're in town for UNE I'll be happy to give you a lift when possible.
I'm an animal lover and the backyard is fully fenced so pets are welcome as long as they're friendly, my cats died recently so I'm in need of some cuddles :-).

Great host.

Nice inexpensive place. Easy check-in. Comfy bed. Hot shower. Host absent but key easy to find. Previous negative reviews complaining about poor cleanliness and odours largely unfounded in my opinion. Could do with some coffee and regular tea in the kitchen but otherwise good.

In terms of cost it was very reasonable. The bedroom is fine. Simple fitout. Bed was a queen and comfortable. Heating worked ok, leave it on all night if it's cold. Powerboard next to bed. The house and shared spaces are quite busy and there is a distinct smell. The bathroom/shower is surface clean but hasn't been proper cleaned for sometime. Lots of mould on ceiling. Wifi is good. The appearance from the street is not very welcoming. It looks run down and overgrown. Like I said, you're not breaking the bank staying here but I won't be heading back.

I needed a quiet comfortable place to crash in Armidale as I had a lot of commitments and Lea's place provided that. Comfy bed and good hot water for a shower and everything you would need. Met Lea briefly as we had very different schedules, lovely person.

Léa User Profile

I am a PhD student in Armidale, NSW, where I have been living fro 3 years after moving from France where I'm from. I love travelling and my family is spread out everywhere in the world so I am sometimes a little sick of hotels and hostels in which case I appreciate some cozyness. I am quiet, clean, social, easy going, laid back, cheerful and I love meeting new people and sharing life experiences. I would love to share a meal or a cup of tea with my guests and hosts if our respective schedules allow it although I understand if all you want is to crash and have a quiet one after a big day.
