I enjoy tennis, dining, movies, entertaining and listing to music . I love the outdoors in summer and meeting new people which is half the attraction of being an AIRBnB host.. I love cooking and gardening. I enjoying most of my time being at home and living so close to Perth as everyone in the street/neighborhood are all very friendly.
ANIMALS: I have one cat that is very shy and keeps to her self and on the odd occasion I look after a very cute dog. They spend a lot of time inside my house and sometimes in the back yard and never allowed in the guests unit so you may be greeted with a couple of very friendly pets. I do not allow them inside the Villa/unit for the guests benefit just to keep it pet free clean.
We are polite, respectful, easy going, nothing is too much trouble and I know our guests will be the same.
