The house belonged to my Grandparents, then was sold, had two owners and I bought it back a few years ago so I love it to pieces. It has a lot of character but needed an overhaul so there are modern features throughout. There's a welcome package when you come to stay at my place, but basically, help yourself. There are books, boardgames, snacks, breakfast materials, even wine if you're so inclined. All I ask is that you replace what you use with something similar if you have the time, cheers.
Anything I don't have but would make your stay better? Let me know.
**PLEASE NOTE: I do not have Wi-Fi and I won't be getting Wi-Fi. I'm sorry, it's not viable, please don't stay if you need Wi-Fi and if you stay please don't leave negative comments about the lack of it, thank you :) Guest AccessYou get the lot. House, front yard, back yard and carport.
My things are stored in bits and pieces around the place, please respect my privacy, but other than that, make yourself at home. Interaction with GuestsAs much or as little as you'd like. If you want your space, the key hand over and welcome package can be as much interaction as we have. If you want me to organise flowers, chocolates or diner reservations, show you some of the sights, sit and have a cuppa and a chat etc, just let me know. I work + volunteer full time but if available I love meeting new people and showing off the beauty of my home town. The NeighborhoodQuiet, a few blocks from the shopping area and a few more blocks from the nightlife, coffee hang outs and boutique shops. My street is safe and very friendly, close to two schools, three churches (if you're so inclined), a great playground/park, and the tourist information centre.
Broken Hill also has a great Golf Course. If you play let me know and I can set up a game for you!
Let me know if you want to go for a wander with the Barrier Rangers, our local group of experienced bush walkers. I'll find out if they're doing something in the time you're here.
We also have a great independent cinema. Catch the latest attraction, usually for $15 or less with fundraising events most weekends. Getting AroundThere isn't much in the way of public transport in Broken Hill (though what is here is clean & efficient) but a taxi won't cost much and it's easy to walk to the centre of town. Let me know if you're coming in by plane, train or bus and I'll see if I can organise a ride. If I'm in town and not working I'm also happy to play tour guide/chauffeur most of the time.
If you've got your own car, I'm still happy to act as guide, or there are maps, directions and places of interest in the welcome package. Other Things to NotePlease be aware I'm not in the main street and although all the essentials are in walking distance, if you don't like any walking, or don't have a car (though it's recommended if you want to make the most of Broken Hill) then perhaps contact me about whether my house is suited to you. I don't want anyone to be unhappy with their stay - I'd hate for my place to mar a holiday - so if I don't think we're a match I'll tell you honestly and up front.
The backyard is a work in progress which is why I haven't listed the place as pet friendly - I'm not completely positive the fence is in good enough condition that they'd be secure and there are way too many prickles. I'm open to negotiation on this point though, so please contact me.
