House Rules

PLEASE NO SMOKING ON THE PROPERTY.

You are welcome to use the kitchen for SIMPLE meals.
IN THE INTEREST OF THE COMFORT OF OTHER GUESTS AND OUR FAMILY WE ASK THAT YOU DO NOT COOK FOODS THAT REQUIRE A LOT OF FRYING AND SPICES. OUR KITCHEN IS NOT DESIGNED FOR ASIAN/INDIAN STYLE FOOD PREPARATION
But please do not cook after 9.30 pm. Quiet time after 10pm
IN THE INTEREST OF HYGIENE WE ASK THAT YOU USE THE DISHWASHER TO ENSURE PROPER CLEANING OF UTENSILS AND CUPS, PLATES ETC. Large items like saucepans etc will need to be hand washed dried and put away. Not left on the dishrack next to the sink.
It would be great if you could assist in emptying the dishwasher on occasion. Especially if you are a long term guest.
The coffee machine is a barista quaility one and NOT for general use, (even by me ) But if you are around in the am when Jim has fired it up he will happily make you one
If you are a long term guest (more than a week) you are responsible for maintaining the washing of the towels and bed linen you have been provided for in your room.
We also ask that you do not eat or drink on your bed, or use oils or body lotions that may stain the linen and make it look unpleasant for future users. If soiled linen and towels do not revert to their original condition after a normal wash, we will expect you to pay for replacement items.
On your departure your do not need to do anything in regard to washing linen etc..

The family meal gets cooked between 6 −7 pm. It would be appreciated if you could organise your food preparation outside these times

Karen's place was lovely! The family was friendly and accommodating, and I enjoyed my stay. The heated blankets were also much appreciated as it is going into winter and getting quite cold at night. Thanks Karen!

Karen's place is a gem! Karen and her family are very welcoming. The house is quite large that even with other guests you don't feel crowded there's tons of space! The house is close to the train station, which is about 30min from Flinders St Station, and an IGA as well its quick to get on and off the freeway if you're driving. Highly recommend staying here!!!

The description provided in the profile is accurate: the house is big, with plenty of space to feel safe in a private and comfortable room, as well as to be part of a very cheerful family environment. The house is located a few blocks away from the station and easily reachable by bike. Karen is very kind and extremely helpful. Would recommend this room to single travellers who need a clean and comfortable space to crash at night and recharge the battery for an early rise.

Response from Karen:
Thanks Andrea. I'm sorry there were aspects of your stay that you were unhappy with. I will try to do better! Out of my 193 reviews only 2% have been three star, as was yours. The rest are four or five star. That's a big punch to the stats :(

Hey future guests and friends,

Thanks for taking the time to read our profile.

We are a regular Aussie family with a home that many tell us has a relaxed and welcoming vibe. Which is GREAT because that’s how we want you to feel when you stay with us.
You need to know that our home is not a sterile hotel, or a grungy hostel or even a display home. There is the normal detritus of modern family life with children. But that aside you can be assured your environment will be clean, your linens fresh and your room cleaned and dusted before you arrive. There can be a lot of laughter, love (the occasional tantrum) in our home, and you are welcome to share in that, or to have privacy and limited interaction if that is your preference. We will be led by you. ☺

Above all we just want you to be comfortable!

We love keeping fit. Enjoying time with friends. A good red wine or a craft beer AND of course travelling!!

We have been having airbnb guests for 5 years now. It has been truly rewarding and we have met remarkable people from every continent, many we are still friends or in contact with.

We look forward to meeting you too ☺.
