Other things to note
If you love nature, the scent of gum trees and soil, wandering in the garden and among fruit trees, feeding deer (greens & fruits only) and chickens(food scraps) then this is the place for you in a safe and natural environment. The sound of the wind in the trees and the birds are a relaxing complement to the experience, then the location is perfect, a few minutes driving from everywhere, whether you like to visit nurseries, wineries, eateries, or beaches. There are also plenty of areas to walk without using the car and enjoy being in touch with nature. So much to do outdoors in this region.

I am an active, healthy 61 year old. Love people, travel, animals, tennis, gardening, dancing, singing, yoga, creative arts, and anything fun. Spontaneous, genuine and caring. I have travelled widely both to Asia and Europe. My favourite destinations are Alaska for it beautiful glaciers on one hand and the beautiful summer days, abundance of trouts practically leaping into your dinner plates; Santorini for its crystal clear, tranquil waters and white domes & electric- blue domes; Istanbul for its Grand Bazaar spices smell wafting through the air and the mesmerising echoes of prayers throughout the city before sunset set, Chiangmai for its peaceful easy going life amongst the elephants, etc. My motto is to bring out the best in people regardless of age by being non-judgemental and supportive.

During your stay
This room is in Elizabeth's home and her family will be on hand to assist or mingle with you as much or as little as you need. Because you have everything within your private section of the house you do not necessarily need to mingle if you wish for privacy. We will respect that. Just be aware that about 25metres away from the house is a fully self-contained studio where other guests maybe in residences and it would be appreciated if you stay within the proximity of your own room & gardenarea and keep noise to a minimum to respect other's privacy.
