The SpaceThis room is small, but includes a comfy double bed that's pushed up against the wall, linen and towels, a place to keep your clothes if you don't want to live out of your suitcase, a mirror, etc. We have limited Internet but no tv .
The house is not fancy and has pet ferrets. Some people do not like their natural musky scent and others don't even notice. We do clean their toilets twice a day.
I have been a host in two other houses previously, with good reviews, so give this place a chance!
It is suited for someone with a car, as public transport to the city will take over an hour. Driving in takes about half an hour. However it is possible to use public transport if you don't mind the time- it's a fun adventure to see more of Adelaide as you travel in, plus a lot cheaper than places right in the city centre!
We have a space heater for you in Winter, but in Summer we have a fan for you. To access the air conditioning, you'll need to keep your bedroom door open.
You will have access to the single (separate) toilet, the shower, the kitchen and cooking utensils and dining table, one living area, my books and something that many people find a feature- my ferrets. If you need a place to work I can organise to set up a big folding table for you in one of the living areas.

Kitchen and utensils Interaction with GuestsWe're fairly quiet people, and we like to sit quietly or play games most of the time. However I'm happy to be in the same room as you, and to sometimes have a chat about your day or what you'd like to do next! We work strange hours- I work afternoons, he works evenings. The NeighborhoodAdelaide is a fantastic place, and this is a good, reasonably priced base to travel around from. The neighbourhood is general suburbia, with some parks and duck ponds, a wide range of neighbours and everything in Adelaide a short drive away via the highway or through the suburbs. Getting AroundThere are buses 400 metres away, the buses take over an hour to get to the city centre, but it is possible.
If you have a car however, the nearest train station is 4 minutes away. The train takes about half an hour to get in to North Terrace in the city. I would also be willing to drive you to the train station for a small petrol/time contribution.
I'll lend you a metrocard.
Other Things to NoteI hope you like ferrets!
I'm looking for quiet guests who are considerate and are happy to clean up after themselves.
