The SpaceThis space is great for travellers, business people, FIFO's or people 'between' houses.
The bedroom has walk-in robe, looks out over garden and swimming pool and is completely separate from the main house. It has a separate bathroom situated between the kitchen and bedroom. The self-contained kitchen is supplied for short term or longer term stays.
The unit is a short walk to cafes, fast food outlets and some great restaurants.
We are passionate about our local wildflowers and environment, so if you want to know what to look for and where to go to enjoy our local flora and fauna, this place is perfect for you. We have many wildflower books, walk trails and pictures you can scroll through to work out your next destination.
We are also aware of a great many Aboriginal dreaming trails; some close, some a bus/train ride if you would like to know more about this Great Southern land.
We have some great forests and bushlands within striking distance. If pre-arranged, we can take you on a tour if you would like and do a picnic lunch with the family. Guest AccessYou have private access to the front of the unit off the driveway. There is also a sliding door to the backyard via your dining area. The duplex apartment is attached to (but very independent from) our family home. A shared laundry with washing machine is located on 'our side' which you are welcome to use upon request. Interaction with GuestsWe (2 of us) run a small business from home in the Dining and Lounge room next to the kitchen. We are only in this space weekdays 10 -4. If you have traveled here for business, you are welcome to pull up a chair and share this space with us. Computer, internet, scanner, photocopier, printer and other office amenities are all here and in daily use. The NeighborhoodWe are a friendly family and have a great family friendly community. We enjoy the company of nature admirers, traveling grandparents, family oriented business professionals or travelers wanting to revel in our beautiful local wildflowers. We are also a pretty creative bunch so you are welcome to join in with chalk drawings on our path out the front, as many of our neighbors do !. Getting AroundAs the crow flies we are 6km from the city centre. Bus 99/98 loop ride is just down the road and takes you almost anywhere. We do have good access to buses which link to trains. Or again, if you like riding there are good bike paths. The beach is 3.5km (16 min bike ride). We are often driving to meetings so if push comes to shove, we could be tempted to drive you, but that might spoil the fun of exploring....

Other Things to NoteWe also have bikes and helmets available for you to explore our shopping centres, bushland, wetlands and beaches. The suburb is very quiet, our closest park is about 4 houses down the street, we have a lake within 10 minutes (North), and a significant bushwalk and large lake within 10 minutes (East).
