About the Host, Geoff
Retired "gentleman', interest in playing Lawn Bowls, walking. I enjoy watching movies on my home cinema system, well I have a surround sound system and currently a CRT television nothing really grand.
I enjoy listening to music of most genres, classical to sixties (although not rap, or that kind of music).
I enjoy going to musicals in our local very beautiful old Opera House.
Maybe not a good advert for Airbnb, but since retiring, my wife and I enjoy cruising. My son who is a bit of a globe trotter has just introduced me to Airbnb so that experience is ahead of me.
I have only this year been letting my home out for payment and the response from my guests has been very positive, everyone has really enjoyed themselves. Some were experiencing the glorious North Coast with the Giant's Causeway for the first time (they will be back). For 4 years prior to this year the house was used by family and friends, but now we have opened it up to our worldwide family as well.
