We stayed with Tina for 3 nights whilst we went to a wedding nearby; as we're travelling as a pair we took the option to have the extra sofa bed made up. Both rooms were really comfy. Tina is a really welcoming host suggesting things for us to do in Taree and places we could eat. Would definitely recommend this if you need somewhere to stay in Taree.
Thank you, Tina, for your welcome (and for offering us soup; but we had eaten). And for the fan in our room, on a hot, sticky night.
It's a lovely locality, and your place is very comfortable. We really enjoyed chatting with you, and hearing about your work, and sharing some music with you.
I should add that your directions were very clear too.
Tina was a great host and very happy to assist in any way possible. The rooms were as in the description and the house in a quiet street close to town. Thanks for making our first Airbnb a positive experience.
Many thanks to you Tina for this quick but very nice stay.
Everthing looked perfect to me, not mentionning the host.
I have also apreciate going to town centre by the very close pedestrian path along the river.
Really enjoyed my stay :) thank you very much!
Tina treated us like family and we feel just like staying at our own house.
We were lucky to find this nice room at Tina's place last minute during our trip and really enjoyed our stay. Tina is a warm and welcoming woman and we had a great chat over a cup of tea. We felt at home immediately. The place was tidy and it was great to have our own bathroom and being able to use her fridge. Definitely recommended!
