Entering from your own front door you come into the studio that has a queen bed, table, sofa,kitchen, bathroom (toilet, shower). Airconditioning to keep you cool in summer, warm in winter. A spot outside to enjoy the garden. Breakfast is provided.
Our house is situated on a half acre bush block. Only 5 min drive from the beach, shops, university and hospitals. (Even walking distance from the hospital and tafe/ecu). We have got an native garden and there is bush nearby for walks. When you stay with us you will stay in our unit that we have built on for visitors. It has a relaxed vibe so you can feel at home. This space is separate from the house. It has a built in wardrobe, kitchenette, including a fridge and bathroom. We have put in an air conditioning so that you can be nice and cool on those hot summer days, and nice and cosy on those winter days.There is a sofa for you to relax on. A space right outside where you can sit. If necessary we can put in an extra bed/ cot for a child.
The studio is your own space. The car can be parked on the driveway. You are more then welcome to come to the house when we are home. We like a chat and like get to know our visitors. Feel free to wonder around in the garden.
Interaction with guests
We are willing to help out where we can. If you'd like to have information about the area, borrow a bike or like to do your washing, for example please let us know. I'm sure that we can accommodate so that you will have the best time while you are staying with us. We leave it up to you how much interaction you would like.
Other things to note
We have got a dog who likes to say hello and wonder around, Sophie is a very friendly dog. We also have got children who like to come and say hello. We have some chickens, so you will have fresh eggs for your breakfast!
We expect our guests to treat this home as their home, so with respect. If you have a dog that you would like to bring, please let us know in advance so that we can have a chat about it and see what is possible.
We do not allow smoking in the house. If you do need to light one up please be considerate and do it outside (and leave no trace).
For the air conditioning, please be mindful of the environment and only turn it on when you are home.
My partner and I have moved in 2006 from the Netherlands to Australia. We live with our 3 children in Bunbury. We love living here ans would like for other people to experience that as well. We originally built our unit for our family but like to share this with more people. We like meeting new people. My partner in an engineer with his own business and I am busy with the kids and casual jobs. We like to be active, love our animals and relaxing in our garden. The children speak English and Dutch. We like to travel, not only back to Holland but we also try to go to different places. We like reading, going for a swim (so many different beaches to choose from...) and entertaining. We speak English and Dutch and a little bit of German and French (enough to get around and help out)
