Hi, you'll be sharing the apartment with me most of the time - this is not an exclusive apartment arrangement. I'm pretty laidback, like a read on the sofa with a glass of red (the living room television is rarely on), a stroll down the beach, a hit of tennis and cooking for friends. I've travelled a fair bit - and extensively in Australia (was actually part of a team that wrote the 1st edition 'Footprint' guide to the country a few years ago). I'm a big fan of the 'couch-surfer' concept, and have hosted around 100 CSing guests over the last few years (in my heyday I was Sydney's #1 host - you can check out my profile 'Swaff' on the website) so I think I know how to make someone feel welcome. I'd love to be able to afford to host that way permanently but finances don't allow at the moment, hence Airbnb. I like to believe that you'll be staying not so much because it's a cheap option but because you're looking for a 'home away from home' - and I will strive to provide that.
