My husband Cliff and I are both semi retired, now working only part time on a casual basis, thus maintaining time & flexibility to enjoy our travels both O/S & in Oz. We are both in our mid 50's and enjoy food, wine, friends, family and active lifestyle. We used Airbnb accommodation quite a lot on our last UK/EU trip and it was "All good," Nice to get out of hotel rooms and restaurant eating. We met some lovely, helpful hosts who went out of their way to add to our travel experiences. We returned home and have now opened up our house to Airbnb guests, hoping to do the same for visitors to Melbourne, be they tourists, on business or otherwise needing a lovely place to stay at a very reasonable price.
