About this listing

The space

I live nearly halfway between Sydney and Brisbane and am very close to Port Macquarie with lovely beaches. Many beautiful places are close by, including a nudist beach.

I have free wifi to guests (and me) There is plenty of parking on the street and a local bus service operates. Wauchope is on the main Sydney to Brisbane train. I am gay and straight friendly. I love having visitors and am usually able to show them around!

Wauchope has a tourist facility called Timbertown which is set up like an old town and is set amongst acres of natural forest. It's an authentic heritage township, where a Horse and Carriage still runs, timber is still sawn and the bullock still hauls a load. There is also still a steam engine running!

Port Macquarie's fantastic beaches and impressive coastline are very close and the beautiful lighthouse and the views from the cliff are well worth a visit!

Ted was friendly and the house was tidy. Beds were comfortable. The area is very quiet and a little out of the way, but easy drive to Port Macquarie. The dog has a very loud bark at times, but this didn't bother us

Great spot to stay the night! We didn't meet Ted but he made it very easy to check in and out, and the place was very comfortable.

I don't like talking about myself as I find it quite hard. I am an average sort of person. I am very tactile; like light classical music; the outdoors and I have a German Shepherd dog which is very shy. If you are scared of dogs, or freak if you find a dog hair in the house, then don't bother to book.
I have been married to women twice; the last one only lasted four years and it will never happen again. I don't think I understand women, but what male does?
I like traveling and am looking forward to traveling to Europe again soon. I also have been to Israel several times and love that country.
I have had some criticism recently, mainly from international travelers, about the cleanliness of my home. Firstly, my home is clean, but remember it is my home and I live here. Don't expect it to have the sterility of a five-star hotel, with a daily team of maids to clean it. I am inviting you into my home, so please respect that situation.
Finally, I adopt a 'Clothes Optional' Policy in the house, so if you choose to be nude, that is OK, but if you choose to be clothed, then I will be clothed too.
