Interaction with Guests
I would be receiving my guests when they arrive at my home and have as much or as little interaction as they wish. Usually I like to sit down with them and get to know them a little. I am always happy to show them a little of the area in which I live.
Living at the end of a cul de sac it is relatively quiet and peaceful with only the birds chattering away in the garden.
There is a bus into the local shopping centre and into Coffs Harbour Central just from end of street but a car would be advantageous.
Other Things to Note
Approximate arrival time to be advised and if breakfast is required.
No smoking, no loud music, No Pets.
Our request for accommodation was very late notice but Julie was able to respond and organise everything in time for our arrival. She was very welcoming and helped us a lot in different ways.
Whilst the room is not large it is quite comfortable. It is quiet and we had a good sleep.
There is a bathroom and separate toilet adjacent to the room. Julie has her own room nearby and we understand a separate bathroom facility.
The house which is very clean is in a quiet cul de sac about ten minutes drive from Sawtell shopping centre and beach.
The wifi worked well. Foxtel was available in the shared lounge although Julie went out for the night
Breakfast was simple but was as requested. It the warmer months it would've lovely to sit on the large covered rear deck.
This is a good option if you are passing through the area or stopping a few days to explore.
We were very happy to have stayed with Julie.
Very responsive communication, warm reception and a free city tour:-) absolutely recommended!
Would highly recommend Julie as a host. Offered to pick me up and drive me back to the airport as well as dropping me off at the wedding I was going to which was not expected! Julie also rushed back to the airport to deliver the my tooth and hairbrush I had left in her bathroom. Bed is very comfy!!!!
What a nice stay!!Julie is a welcoming host. Her house is clean and cosy. We were served a wonderful breakfast with many selections! Highly recommended!!
Nice house, nice room and wonderful Sawtell beach nearby. Julie is such a considerate and friendly host that we miss her a lot after we left. There are fresh flowers in the house and birds chat in the trees outside. We feel warm, easy, happy and interesting there. The stay in Julie'home is really an excellent experience.
Julie's was the best air bnb experience I've had. You couldn't meet a more congenial host. Julie has obviously gone to a lot of effort in setting up this room, which is comfortable, very tastefully decorated and welcoming. The area is quiet and peaceful. Julie has a sun drenched verandah overlooking the backyard, where she served us a delicious home-cooked Sunday breakfast. We would have loved to stay longer, but left after one night feeling refreshed and nurtured.
Julie is such a warm welcoming host and the her place is clean and tidy. The bed is so comfortable and I had slept so well. It was also nice to meet her cat Lucky.
