Airbnb awarded me SuperHost status in April 2015 because of consistently high guest ratings of their accommodation experience.
I have lived in Perth and Melbourne and over 10 years I hosted mature age international English students - from Switzerland, France, Italy, Germany, Hungary, Japan, Taiwan, China, Hong Kong, South Korea, Indonesia, Thailand. This was before airbnb.
I recently returned from 6-weeks in Spain, Portugal and Morocco where I stayed at a series of apartments and share homes through airbnb. I have seen first hand what thoughtful and practical hosts have offered their guests and I am keen to deliver a memorable, pleasant and secure experience for visitors to Melbourne.
I am a writer and English teacher and have always been a keen traveller. I am now a Top Contributor on tripadvisor with 90-plus reviews in 30 cities and 75-plus helpful votes - my reviews provide information travellers can use to make their visits more enjoyable.
You can ask me about travelling around Melbourne - I hope to earn your helpful vote!
So much in the world of travel has changed now that we can bypass the travel agent and custom design what we want to do and find budget friendly options - so we can travel again soon! My previous trip was to Budapest-Vienna-Prague. I am currently planning weekend travel around Victoria and trips to revisit Bali and a three week excursion around Italy.
I am a mature traveller who wants to experience life as a citizen in the country - rather than life as a tourist viewing experiences through the coach window. The food, the wine, the music, the architecture, the gardens, the conversations and the quirky differences of how people live.
We are citizens of the world - an idea whose time has come via the revolution of the internet and cheap airline travel.
As an airbnb host I can bring my corner of the world - Melbourne - closer to you.
