I'm Lisa. I am semi retired and enjoy sailing, gardening and being an Airbnb Host. I manage two gorgeous properties on the Great Ocean Road, a cute little cottage in Williamstown and a very cool boat house in Fiji.

I work hard to make sure my houses are spotless and well equipped. My style of hosting is to leave you alone, unless you need my assistance of course.
Its very important to me that my guests feel like they have got value for money and that I have provided all the requirements for a rewarding holiday, the rest is up to you! I also try to ensure my properties have a low impact on the environment; this is not just token. You wont find wasteful throw away toiletries or harsh cleaners. You will find recycling, composting and little touches that help to minimize the footprint of your holiday. I value clients that also respect this and are conscious of the resources that they use.
I hope you have a great holiday, where ever you decide to stay.
