2 Bedrooms Side by side are exactly the same size with built in robes and a double bed in each carpeted room. There is a fridge freezer in one of the rooms and desks also in each, with bedside lights. These bedrooms share a bathroom that has a shower and bath, along side the toilet and laundry. Our guests are encouraged to make themselves feel at home and to use all of the facilities we have including the kitchen if they so wish? Of course they can elect Craig to cook for them (frustrated chef).
We are a relaxed couple Husband and Wife 50ish, whom work full time, Craig works from home running his own business, Breakfast is provided and other meals can be arranged if you require them them at a very reasonable rate.
Our neighborhood is quiet and close to a very large park that has a great playground and BBQ facility, along side the Werribee River that reaches Port Phillip Bay at Werribee South. A great little spot with a nice beach for bathing at a marina for boating and rocks for fishing from it is a popular spot for all. We have a bus stop less than 100 metres from our front door that will get you to the train station within 10 minutes, also along to any of the three major shopping destinations you may choose.
Our home is pretty unique as we have a completely edible garden we nearly produce all that we eat on site in our picturesque edible garden, we also have chickens that provide us fresh eggs to breakfast and baking and our guests just love wandering around looking smelling picking and eating through our garden.
The part of the house that has the two rooms is all for the guests the toilet, and bathroom is not shard the laundry is but there is only two permanent residents in the house so it is next to always available
Interaction with Guests
We can have as much or as little interaction is guests would like, we are very sociable but also aware that people also like their own space.
less than 100 metres from the but that connects to the train system and easy to get in and out of the City if you want to, we think there is already enough to do and see here in Werribee,
Other Things to Note
Make sure you get to see Werribee Park Mansion, also the open range Zoo certainly World Quality, Shadow fax Winery is another fantastic experience, also Werribee South Beach and surrounding Market gardens is part of the Food bowl of Victoria and well worth a drive though to have a look. plus much much more.
A lovely, warm and inviting place to stay. There's a large park nearby and the gorgeous werribee river. Very laid back house, that will very quickly feel like home.
I've stayed with Craig & Kerry a number of times in the past and always look forward to returning there when I am working around their area. Craig & Kerry are great hosts and always willing to share their great knowledge in many areas.
Thank you again for a lovely comfortable stay.
It was our first time travelling with AirBnb and we weren't sure exactly what to expect, but Craig, Kerry, Patch and Gemma (2 pet dogs) were such friendly hosts that it made our stay very enjoyable and comfortable. The room (and the famous edible garden!) was just as described and the individual key access made it feel extra secure (though, the home and the neighbourhood feels pretty peaceful).
It was a shame we didn't get to taste Craig's cooking due to our busy schedule, but it was very nice to be able to have fresh eggs and tomatoes and homemade yoghurt for breakfast. We definitely recommend Craig to others who plans to stay within the area.
Thank you for your hospitality. I've moved my basil next to the tomatoes!
Craig is a very nice host, I like his philosophy of life as in his garden he grows his own food and helps others to do so, his wife is also an amazing woman and his two dogs are really friendly. The room is very nice, comfortable bed, wireless internet, it has everything you need.
It may be a bit far from the city (about an hour on public transportation), but is something you can handle if bringing a car or planning your schedules to take the train to/from the city and have no hurries, btw, there is a very nice track towards the river from his house to the railway station in the case you want to have a walk or a bike ride so if you like nature and want to have a nice suburb experience Craig's place is a good choice.
Yes, our Hosts Craig and Kerry Castree were absolutely hospitable. They are kind, generous and made us feel so at home. The atmosphere was peace and quiet. Craig is great at organic gardening, we got to taste lots of organic fruit and vegetables. Their lifestyle is so nature based, we loved it. Also loved his wife, Kerry's vast knowledge on natural health/healing aroma touch therapy. Really helped relieve some of my health issues.
We loved our one month stay at the Castree Home, very kind helpful, friendly wise and knowledgable couple. If in Mebourne again this will be our home away from home. Thank You n love regards Guys......also love to adorable Patch n Jemma.
Craig and Kerry are excellant hosts.. Warm, caring and friendly. We absolutely cherished their company and felt comfortable. Overall it was an enriching homestay experience.
Thank you so much Craig and Kerry. Your warmth and kindness is much appreciated. We are glad that our paths have crossed.
Love & Regards,
Asha, VK & Sunita

About the Host, Craig
Our property is a little unique given that we have a completely edible garden, we have our own chickens, from which we get fresh eggs from each day, and for those guests that like Bacon and eggs for Breakfast? Have we got a treat for you! There is nothing like fresh eggs and for that matter fresh anything that you have grown yourself so if you want us to make you a lunch or Dinner? let us know we will help you out. Craig is a bit of a frustrated Chef, he would like to think that he is a chef, whilst he isn't but he is not bad in the Kitchen all the same. Sheesh he even makes his own cheese! And of course with our edible garden he is always taking someone out there to tell them or show them something.
