Chris made us feel very welcome, we loved staying there . Chris even gave us a tour in his electric car! and as an added bonus allowed us to read a copy of the training manual he wrote . We enjoyed the family atmosphere and especially his two delightful, intelligent children. His Airbnb was decidedly more than we expected.This is our first Airbnb venture and we shall definitely be using this facility in the future.

Works in education scheduling, but also a strong advocate for the sharing economy. As seen on TV ha ha - See Chrislivesfree.

Drives a Tesla ... well, actually it self-drives me most of the time! I've also got solar panels and a Tesla Powerwall home battery. Ask me about technology saving the planet - or better still join me!

Frequent traveller. Polite and friendly. Prefer company and chats with locals over solitude.
Relaxed and friendly. Knows how to clap using only one hand.
Likes to sleep in a dark, cold room, with a warm doona.
Wrote a book (Behind The Private Eye) reviewed by Sydney Morning Herald - twice! Flew a hang glider. Engineered the defence forces of two countries, to implement a community positive project I personally devised.
Love hosting guests and making people happy.
