About this listing
Come and stay with me because I am absolutely kind, nice and friendly. I will look after you and cook your breakfast. Well worth two days' here because there is much to do and I am so marvellous!!
I am also more than reasonably priced.
Queen size bedroom or other bedroom with twin beds is available with a private bathroom (with shower over bath ) in a residential home. Kitchen available at all times. .Breakfast available and linen provided. Public transport ( bus ) in same street. Moderate walk to coast and city centre. Visitors would be made to feel "at home" in my home. Whale watching a popular tourist attraction. Plenty of restaurants - easy travel to Port Fairy to the west or Port Campbell and The Twelve Apostles. Guests can smoke outside. My latest guests enthusiastically walked into town and to the beach. There is so much to see and do around Warrnambool and although the weather can sometimes be wet and windy it is well worth a visit.Having had a number of people to stay now I believe there is so much to see and do from here that it might be wise to book for two nights. Many people come down the GOR and then belatedly realise what great places they could visit from here ( Timboon Cheese Factory and the Distillary, Port Fairy, Tower Hill etc ) , how many restaurants they could visit and what a great place it is that the majority of guests wish they had the flexibility to stay a little longer. My place is not unique but it is certainly very comfortable.
Interaction with Guests
I am basically here all the time and very much enjoy talking and interacting with my guests.
I love the fact that East Warrnambool is a fairly quiet well established area but still accessible to shops, Catholic church, and a manageable walk to the river and/or beach.
There is a bus which is quite close by.
I would like guests to feel free to make their own coffee, feel at home, pick up after themselves, enjoy a joke and feel at ease.
We never got to meet Helen because I couldn't master driving on the left side, but she was so sweet and gracious and tried so hard to help us out of our predicament that I can't help but think we missed what would have been the highlight of our trip.
Helen made us delicious cake when we were there. Even though we arrived late, she waited for us and even spent time talking to us and making small talks to get to know us better. The rooms are also clean and comfortable. I'm so glad to be back to Helen's place. This is my second time with her and definitely not the last. Thank you for the bfast! She made us feel at home and we couldn't thank her enough.
Lots of love,
Grace, Shermaine, Sheena
I was thrilled to have you back again and sad that you had to leave so quickly. I really hope you do come back again for a few days next time. It was lovely to see you again and very nice to meet Shermaine and Sheena. Have a great time in Australia. Hopefully - you will return.
This woman and home are, simply put, amazing. Helen is the kindest, most generous host you could imagine. She even made us a roast dinner when she found out we hadn't been home in months. Cake on arrival, good conversation, a fabulously comfortable bed. This is one of the best airbnb's we've ever stayed in. The space is more beautiful than what is shown in the pictures. We would love to be back to see Helen again next time we're in Warrnambool. If you're lucky enough to find her when she has availability, be sure to (website hidden)- if you see one nasty review below, please ignore it. It is completely false.
Helen was a very friendly, polite and a very charming host. We enjoyed the stay at her house very much as she knew how to entertain us. Especially when you like little chats with the host this is the place you have to stay. The breakfast was delicious and we were sad that we had to leave after one night. Thanks Helen
We (Anneke and Rudy from the Netherlands ) had a very nice stay at Helen's house. Two days where to short. Helen makes an really nice breakfast and.....when we go on the road, she gives us a big part of cake. ( home made) Helen's first important is her family of course. But to give people a very nice stay in her lovely house is Helen's way of living. Helen thank you again. Hope to meet you when you come to Holland.
Big kiss Ruud and Anneke.
About the Host, Helen
From Melbourne originally. I have lived in Warrnambool for seven years and I love it. I have two grown up daughters - one who lives 3.7 kilometres away and the other one 3 and a half hours away. I love cooking, good films and visiting friends. I want my home to feel like home away from home to anyone who comes to stay and I would like them to remember their time in Warrnambool with pleasure. I adore Warrnambool and really enjoy sharing our lovely city with people. There is so much to see, so many wonderful restaurants and so much to do that everyone always runs out of time. I truly believe that one night in Warrnambool is not enough - stay longer!
My style of Airbnb hosting has not changed from day one: I love people, enjoy meeting people and as one can see from the 43 really lovely reviews everyone has a pleasant time while here with me. I will not allow one demented person to spoil my outlook on hosting - if you do see a cobweb - let me know - otherwise I will still willingly make a lovely breakfast ( and 98% of the time dinner too if you arrive before 8 o'clock ). Do not be put off by the one negative because I most certainly won't be.
