Welcome to our lovely family home and thank you for checking my listing! I enjoy showing visitors my city, and regularly host short term consultants, international visitors, students and families with small children.
The location is absolutely perfect for both visitors and students coming here short or long term. The airport is less than 20 mins away. The bus stop is only minutes walk, and will take you to the Universities and city centre in no time! I can often drive you in the mornings.
My comfortable and roomy home is located in south suburban Canberra, the capital of Australia. Nearby, you can find a variety of walking trails, supermarket, shops, fast food, restaurants (Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, Turkish, Indian, Italian), club, a swimming pool, gym and library.
To make this a truly Australian experience, it is only five mins walk to see kangaroos at the Farrer Ridge nature reserve - almost our backyard! Relax with a book on the deck and feed our native birds...My magpie family comes daily for hand feeding.
Two spacious bedrooms (listed separately) have everything you need. Each boasts a large window, bed (double), closet, chest of drawers, shelves/bookcase and desk. Bed linen and towels supplied. The bathrooms have just been totally renovated and are beautiful.
Two adults maximum per bedroom. Small children can be accommodated with parents in same bedroom.
Note: This bedroom listing is similar to but separate from my other bedroom listing as I need the facility to book both separately in the calendar. I will discount a second bedroom booking by the same party.

- Security system
- Aircon/Heating and indoor fireplace
- Two living areas
- Main bathroom reserved for guests
- Washing machine
- Hot tub, table and chairs, and BBQ on the deck

We had a stopover in Canberra and she recommended things to see and do, as well as restaurants in the neighborhood. Wendy shares her home with you, but you have your own rooms and bathroom and then you share the common areas in the kitchen and living room. The house is situated in a very nice and quite area of the city.
Staying with Wendy was very comfortable and convenient for us to access the southern district of Canberra, which we needed to do over the weekend.
Wendy obviously maintains a high standard of cleanliness in her house, and is generous with her provision of breakfast. She is also very helpful in suggesting places of interest around the ACT.
This was the first time we'd stayed in a private home in Canberra and we enjoyed the experience - I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Wendy's place to anyone who would appreciate a more intimate and less expensive experience than a hotel.
The shower was particularly good! Hot, with good water pressure, in a nicely renovated bathroom.
Off street parking is also available.
We'll be happy to stay at Wendy's on future trips to Canberra.
Wendy is a very interesting and excellent Host and has a home away from home for those lucky few who make the journey to South Canberra. I recommend you take the time to sit on the back desk and watch the abundant bird life amongst the setting sun.
We had a great time staying with Wendy. Her house was big and spacious and with a nice garden and backyard for my kids to run around in. She was also able to provide us with alot of information on where we should visit and how to get around.
At the end of the day she was always avaliable to chat over a nice cup of tea and share with us her experiences travelling around the world.
Overall it was a great experience staying with her and her son Adrian and we will definately stay with her again on our next visit.
We had a fanstastic stay with Wendy who was very helpful and thoughtful in making arrangements for a baby car seat for our 15 month old daughter and spending a lot of time and effort in giving us advice on places to visit and things to see in and around Canberra. A lovely home with lots of space and a beautiful garden. Wendy was very hospitable and we enjoyed having dinner and a glass of wine with her. We would definitely recommend this accomodation to any fellow airbnb - ers to experience a great stay with a wonderful lady in a beautiful home. Thanks Wendy!
Wendy is very experienced from her earlier hosting of international students. She made my stay comfortable making sure all my necessities were met including breakfast and transportation. On my arrival day, she took me grocery shopping so that I did not have to worry about food for a few days. I felt like I was at home using her kitchen and having meals together sometimes. When I came home late at night tired from the sport competition in which I was participating, she was available for me to sit down for a cup of tea and a little chat. I enjoyed stayed with Wendy and her son Adrian who gave me a lift one day. Throughout my stay, I confirmed that it is people who make life rich and sound. I will visit them again when I am in Canberra next time.
