Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Fab host! Friendly and kind. Great location for buses to town and Julie offered lots of info to help us out too! Very comfy bed would definitely stay again :)

  • Julie was most accommodating about our late booking and very willing to communicate about managing in her home in her absence. The garden was a delightful place to be on a warm summer evening and we were very comfortable in our bed. This is a quiet neighbourhood in easy reach of Newark township, well worth spending some time in!

    Response from Julie:

    I hope so, and thank you for your lovely note. I've recently discovered there has been a problem with my washing-machine since it was installed - not enough water getting through, so I expect you didn't get very good results from using it? Sorry about that!

  • Julie was very welcoming and her house is in a lovely quiet neighbourhood near the marina.

    June 2014
  • Julie was away from home on my arrival and trustingly left a key for me to access her home. During my stay the kitchen was undergoing renovations and the lounge room was in disarray, but the bedroom was clean and tidy with a double bed. Although my stay was scheduled for 5 nights, I only stayed 4 nights and Julie refunded my 5th night without any hesitation. I would have no hesitation in recommending Julies’ home, a perfect host.
