A very nice and friendly family. I felt very welcome, and the accommodation is very good. Nice area, with short walks to the park and train station.
I stayed with Karen, Jim, Belle and Aus for 6 weeks whilst dancing professionally down in Melbourne. Karen went out of her way to make me feel welcome and apart of the family. I really enjoyed getting to know the kids and attending a cycling class with Karen on a sunday morning. It was a very sad departure at the end of my stay, although I will definitely be returning for a visit in the future! I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a home away from home with a great balance of privacy and space within a family atmosphere. A nice big bedroom with a very cumfortable bed and plenty of storage space. Fast and reliable wi-fi also! My stay here was a 10/10 in all aspects. Already missing this beautiful family!
This was the first time I stayed with a family. I didn't know what to expect. Well it was very good. All the family members were very friendly, the kids as well. I had a very nice stay in their nice and comfortable house. With both, Karen as well as with her husband I had nice and funny (email hidden)eir house is two stops away from the beach and the room were I stayed was big and spacy, with a very handy wardrobe for travelers. I loved staying in their Newport house.
Karen was a great host. Herself and her family were very friendly and welcoming!
The room was clean and super comfy! Having our own personal fridge was also a bonus, and the little care package upon arrival was a sweet personal touch.
We would definitely stay there again, and would recommend anyone else!
I had a lovely stay with Karen and Jim. They are very welcoming and generous. We had some really hot days (44-46 degrees C), but the house was still comfortable and cool. Loved the kids and the puppy.
Nice quiet area not too far from the city (best by train) and only 2 train stops from the beach.. Good value for money. I can really recommend it.
We had the most wonderful time in Newport with Karen, Jim and the kids. The room is sunny and spacious, the house a dream. We felt more than welcomed and are still sad that we had to leave this great place and family. We definitely recommend this place as you won't find something comparable in this area!!!! Our son was fully included in the family and had the best time with the beautiful children of the family. A must go! This is what airbnb is about!
Karen and Jim and their children Isabella and Austin(I missed them),were amazing to me and my partner.They have a lovely family that made us feel welcome.Karen and Jim was a great hosts and was a very pleasant stay at their house,very interesting to talk,very welcoming and flexible.Our room was very neat and tidy,quiet and has a very comfortable bed.Karen(chef?)even served us the best delicious soup Ive ever tasted hhmmm,yummy! Also Jim cooked us a pie?(forgot whats the name of that food).what is it Jim?hehehe.
We felt very welcome in their home and would not hesitate to stay there again,and would recommend this homestay to everyone without reserve!Many Thanks once again Karen and Jim.Send us regards to Aust and Bella.Apologies for my late response.Happy New Year Williams family.Good health and Happiness always to Karen,Jim,Austin and Bella from Anthony and Ruth.Thank you so much!
Room, family, and house were all great. Made us feel right at home. Having the most adorable puppy was a pretty amazing way to start the day too. Would definitely recommend.
Nice place in a family home. Excellent in terms of bed comfort, room size, nice desk and comfortable reading chair. Welcome access to kitchen and an extra fridge so there's plenty of space. Nice quiet street, an easy walk to the train to get into CBD.
There are kids, so it's not a silent mountain retreat, but speaking as a person who prefers things very quiet I had no issues at all.
Such a lovely family in a perfect location. Great spacious room with wonderful hosts, it was the perfect place for us to stay and where our 6 months old baby was made to feel very very welcome too. Thank you all so much for your hospitality !
