Not a hotel, hostel or BnB. It's a sharehouse. Our guests interact with our household, can have open discussion, and join us for meals. Does this sound like you? Homestay in a sociable 4 bedroom household of professionals, locals and mature travelers. This is a large room furnished with queen bed. Located in quiet street, close to large markets. Drug free and smoke free. Common areas shared by house mates including kitchen, bathroom, lounge room, and laundry. 30 minute bicycle to city centre.
In particular we love the share house guests that can promptly wash their own dishes, dry the bathroom floor after their shower, wipe down table surfaces after their food prep and meals, and flush the toilet (alllll the way down). If any of these tasks sound difficult then we are likely to be a poor match.
Aim for 5 minute showers; it frees up the bathroom for others. No smoking inside the house, or in the front/back yard (including e-cigarettes, bongs, vaporizers). This is a great house to quit smoking altogether. As mentioned above, this is a drug free house ie. we don't do drugs and we are not interested in talking about drugs.
No proselytizing on behalf of any religious/spiritual/lifestyle/corporate/pyramid/ponzi organization. Golden rule - clean up own mess. We are a homestay with expectations on being tidy in the common areas.
Our share house highly rates guests who are sociable and can be open, regardless of their spoken language. We poorly rate guests who; avoid interaction, stay locked in their bedroom, or are fixated by a mobile phone.
We have had a few guests who have attempted to conceal their friends stay over the night. We encourage guests to be upfront, open and transparent about this. It is important that guests ask permission to have friends stay over in our home. Guests that try to conceal this rate very poorly. Please note an extra guest will be billed for the whole duration of the booking regardless of how many nights they stay. This is cost prohibitive for guests who wish to have visitors stay temporarily.

Hi. We are often found traveling to the country side, enjoying nature, quirky places and people, sometimes moving by bike or foot. We are both from Australia. I have spent a few years living overseas and speak Mandarin, and my wife is from a big Australian Japanese family and can karaoke fluently in Japanese. Together we are spreading a message of world peace and veggie gardening.
