Other Things to Note
Relax and don't be shy to ask for anything.
Leave clean and tidy and respect our things. We have a 10 year old friendly Siberian Husky - If you have a friendly Furry Friend you travel with - please ask!
My short stay was very, very pleasant. Samantha and David know how how be good hosts in a functional, friendly way and yet let you do you own thing. They do take the extra friendly step - chatting, cooking etc. if you need to decompress and relax at home. The space is nice and very comfortable - warm clean bed, hot shower etc. My best AirBnB experience so far.
My two sons and I stayed in Geelong for one night on our way through to the Great Ocean Rd. Sam and David were very warm and friendly, the perfect hosts. Our booking was made the night before we arrived, Sam's online communication with me was excellent. We cooked and shared a meal together, we supplied some meat and after being away from home for a few days, a lovely, healthy home cooked meal was very much appreciated. David even spent some time explaining and showing my sons some basic guitar playing. We went out after dinner and did a Geelong Ghost Tour (also recommended) and when we arrived back, we shared stories over a glass of wine. The next morning, the kitchen was set up with everything we needed to make breakfast before we headed off to explore the coastline. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Sam and David and would recommend their accommodation to anyone looking for a warm, inviting, friendly experience, it really felt like we were part of their family for the night.
Sam and David are really amaizing couple. we feel very at home when staying with this lovely family, this lovely music family. Sam and David shared their family members' songs with us, shared their stories with us. and we even had a live singing from David. Cheers, the beautiful night with these lovely people.
the next morning, Sam told us the places we shall go along the Great Ocean Road. we do appreciate and followed her instruction, and had a wonderful drive.
It is a very nice music family. Sam and her husband are really really friendly and easygoing. We used their vegetable and bought some meat for share dinner. They have a beautiful dog!
The four of us absolutely loved staying with Sam. Both Sam and her house were warm and inviting. She generously opened up her kitchen for us to cook breakfast each morning. As the description says there was a double bed in a private room and then she also set up a double mattress in a quiet living area. Both beds were very comfortable. It's a lovely old house with a beautiful dog and we hope to stay there again :-)
Es war eine besondere Erfahrung hier zu sein. Ich habe mich unmittelbar wie zuhause gefühlt. Ich war dort für fast eine Woche, weil ich auf einer Konferenz war. Samantha hat mich jeden Morgen mitgenommen und wir haben bis lange in die Nacht über Gott und die Welt gesprochen... Das ist ein Platz, den ich sehr empfehlen kann.
Es wird der Platz sein, an den ich gehe, wenn ich wieder nach Geelong komme.

About the Host, Samantha
Wonderful family person who has traveled 3/4 of the world with children and alone. Love to share others experiences and good times with those who appreciate fun in life. I am now working full time, but one teenager has left the nest. I have one spare room and more space to throw down an innerspring mattress that is super comfy and it would be wonderful to share with the young at heart or young family trying to discover my part of Australia on a budget!
I love having overseas visitors, and experienced many student stays from Japan,France, China and Germany. I have worked for the AIIU of Australia finishing in 2004 and hold a Working With Children's Card. My current position is working for the Department of Justice Victoria.
I am a young at mind 50 year old woman who has a friend in life and two children aged 20 & 21 living away from home. I am open minded and don't mind smokers (outside) and wine with meals. I am the best Sunday Roast Cooker in the World.... I also have a 10 year old Siberian Husky dog who is child friendly and mainly outside.
The things I like in life are sitting around the kitchen table sharing stories over a few drinks and great conversation, food and laughing.
Gardening,BBQ meals, reading, a clean home, my friendships and shopping for a bargain.
My family is music orientated with all the kids (including my partners children) all out playing live in our area. My lounge room (sitting room) is more of a music / recording studio.. Lots of fun.
Things I don't like - people that would not respect my home and belongings and people who are rude. People that would take advantage of my good nature. Guests that would be untidy - My motto in my home would be - If you make the mess - great! But you clean up the mess. lol.....
My ideal guest would be someone/family that would come into my home and feel at home. Feel that they could relax, make a cuppa or meal, when they felt like it. Throw on a load of washing and take a shower - feeling comfortable.
5 Things I can't live without - wow! Laughter, Food, Coffee, Good Wine and helping others.. then there is movies, live theater, books, animals and my Mum and Dad.
Being a guest at my home would mean that you would have a stress free, friendly experience. I have a bus stop 20 steps from the front door and 10 mins to the City. Also, 10 min bus ride to City Station - Gateway to all Ocean Road experiences and Melbourne City. Happy to help with travel timetables and arrangements. Small fee for pick up and drop off to Gull Bus (Tullamarine Airport Bus to Geelong)
