The space

This is a medium size room with one single bed.

Closed to free shuttle bus. Closed to city centre and closed to Figtree shopping center. Beach about 3.5km distance.
We have lots of birds in the evening that come to our balcony. We use to feed them. We also have two possums that sleeps under the house. Sometimes at night when they go out to the balcony we can see them and occasionally we touch them. They can make some noise sometimes.
Please note the furniture layout and furniture it self may be different from the pictures. As we have different guest, we change things around to suite.

I have a lot of stuff around the house, those are part of my hobby and part of my recycling way of living.

We love to have people with us a lot. I (Jose) have been doing this for many years since 1965 in China (Macau), Portugal, Brazil, Thailand and Australia with no major problems.

Other things to note

Old house located on a slop with steps to access the street at the front.
Car parking at the front of the house on the street. It is a very safe street and safe area. Sometimes is difficult to find a parking at the front of the house but you can find one in the street near the house.

We have international power adapters that supports most of world wide plugs.
We have security surveillance cameras 24/7.
This is a old house maybe 70 years old. I am constantly fixing or improving things around the house to maintain it safe and sound. I recycle a lot of stuff that I fix and sale on the internet, those stuff are around the house and I fix then on the balcony (varanda) or at the front or under the house.
We are a poor family but we are very gentle with the guests and try to do the best. José has lived half of his live on a family guest house in Macau (China), Thailand, Australia, Brazil and in Portugual, We had a lot of international guests during those times and also served with meals.
I left Macau when I was 7 years old or so, so I do not speak Chinese any more.
I love Asian people, they have treated my family very well in Macau. We also had and still have a lot of Chinese guests with us.
Please note when wet areas they are very slippery. Those are the balcony, access to the house and the tiling floor in the house.
In the kitchen you can find a lot of information regarding your stay. Internet access password is also there. Please read it as it has important information for you safety and other things.
