Four bedroom family home, I keep a large spare room for family and guests to stay, I regularly have travelling musicians stay so thought I'd open my doors to new friends. During winter a fire keeps the house warm, in summer we open up the french doors and cook on the BBQ every night. I hosted a range of guests including international travellers and local tradesmen. The house really isn't suitable for older couples based on feedback that I've had. Our ideal Airbnb guests are families & couples.

It was very good since the house was very clean and nice. We had a great time in the place. He was off somewhere else, usually he seemed to not be home. Anyways, it was a comfortable stay. Thank you!
