We love travelling and sharing our own lovely place on earth with others. We've used Airbnb around the world and enjoy accommodation that's comfortable, professional and personal at the same time; like staying with friends. This is what we try to offer.
We moved here from the city and adore the skies which are incredible: the clarity of the light, stunning sunsets or sometimes misty and mournful in winter. Some nights the stars flash and twinkle different colours - a sight most people on earth don't have the opportunity to see any more.
My partner and I love gardening and spend a lot of time making this old garden truly beautiful. Our garden has been opened to the public on occasion to raise funds for charity - something we still do. We have a friendly little kelpie, chooks and a rooster! We've also seen koalas, echidnas, wallabies, kangaroos and wombats so you might while you're here too.
Our place is great for exploring an amazingly scenic and historic region - with skiing at Mt Buffalo, Mt Hotham and Falls Creek in winter; cycling, hiking and bushwalking throughout the year; many small, top-notch wineries; good beer to discover; fine artisan food producers and upmarket shopping in Beechworth. If you like photography we can point you to some lovely local places where you can capture that quintessential Aussie landscape shot.
We're located only a short distance from the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail ((website hidden)) from which you can directly access our local town of Beechworth or make a day of it and head downhill for Eldorado, Wangaratta, Myrtleford and Bright.
There is an award-winning regional museum in Beechworth with lots of information about the gold rush and life in 19th century Australia. And the Ned Kelly Vault museum is now open too ((website hidden)).
You could easily stay a week and still have heaps to come back for next time!
Please come and stay with us - we'd love to host you!
