The space

I have a bed-sitting room available. There is a brand new, firm and very comfortable King Single (wider and longer than a Single) innerspring bed.. There are a couple of easy chairs and a drop-side table/desk. .

You will have your own room, with a 32" LCD TV and DVD player. There is FREE WiFi connection in the room. There are lots of DVDs for you to borrow. Movies, documentaries, etc. Sorry, there is no wardrobe, but there is a small garment rack for clothes.. Share bathroom with 1 other (URL HIDDEN)
I supply good quality bed linen and doona/duvet, a plenty of quality bath towels, a bath robe and an umbrella (This is Melbourne, after all.)
There is also a hair dryer for your use.

Alan is a prompt communicator. He was ill the day I was to stay at his place, but he had an alternate plan which was fabulous. His place is a bit off the beaten path but is so adorable. He is a lovely man and if I'm in the area again, I will definitely stay at his cottage.
