The SpaceThe listed room has a Queen sized bed, but if there are more than 2 of you wishing to stay, the room right next door to yours has 2 single beds, so I can host groups of up to 4 people.
I only have one person, couple or group of people to stay at a time, so you'll have sole access to the bathroom, toilet and a quiet sitting room with TV.
Please note that this is a 2 storey home and all of your rooms are on the upper floor, which is accessed from street level, with no use of stairs required. However, the path to the front door is quite steep, and might be something to consider if you have mobility issues.
The stairs have a child proof gate at the top to keep children safe. Also, the back yard is not fenced, so constant supervision is required.
Please message me with any queries. Guest AccessMy home is quite roomy, so there's plenty of space for everyone. You'll have access to your own toilet and bathroom with a shower and bath. The deck is also lovely and protected from the worst of the weather, so you're welcome to have your breakfast on the deck, enjoy the birds in the late afternoon or a relax with a sunset drink.
Basics such as milk, tea and coffee are supplied and you are more than welcome to supply your own food and cook for yourself using the well appointed kitchen. Just leave things clean and tidy.
I have a rambling backyard, including a veggie garden, which you're welcome to wander in and pick whatever's ripe. The backyard is not fenced off, so this could be something for you to consider if you have small children. Interaction with GuestsI live in my home, so clearly I'll be around!
How much I'll be around depends on my work schedule, which varies. I'm always contactable by phone, and will endeavour to be here to welcome you, show you around and answer any questions while you settle in.
If you're looking for a party house, then I suggest you keep looking!
If you're into books, recycling, gardening, beaches, cooking/eating, music, travelling and nature, then you've come to the right place!
Depending on your interests, I'm happy to make recommendations if you're wondering how to spend your time. For example: nearby bush walks to find orchids, a whale watching cruise if you're visiting during winter, lunch spots that are family friendly, or the best local fish and chips. There is much to see and do, all you need to do is ask! The NeighborhoodAugusta is a quiet town and a great place to unwind and get away from it all. We have the stunning Blackwood river meeting the Indian and Southern oceans, and we're surrounded by gorgeous native forests. I call it the trifecta of awesomeness.
Augusta also has a reputation as a world class kite-surfing destination. This means it can get really windy and I recommend you pack some warmer layers to wear just in case! Getting AroundI have plenty of parking available at my place, and you'll likely need a car or other vehicle to get here. You're welcome to bring your own bikes or kayaks if you have them, and there is ample space to store them securely. The river is on your doorstep and there are lots of trails in the forest to explore.
There is a bus service from Perth to Augusta, but local taxis and public transport are pretty well non-existent. Other Things to NoteI have a tiny dog. So if you're allergic to dogs this could be something for you to consider. She's a Miniature Pinscher, is quite mature and sleeps a lot, so chances are you won't see or hear much of her. But yes, a dog does live in this home and other dogs are not welcome to stay.
