Hi I'm Linda and I live with my husband Ian, our 18yo son Oli and our golden cocker spaniel Lola on a wonderful patch of Earth in Mt Lawley not far from the Perth CBD.
We love sharing our home of 30 years with visitors and the 'fix rather than replace' motto we've used to decorate and maintain it and our other Airbnb listings. It means they are quirky as well as comfy and all with a low planetary foot-print : ) We're especially love the benches in our kitchen which are crafted from timber milled from a tree we planted over our 29yo son's placenta soon after we moved in.
We also love yoga (bikram and yin), meditation, being resourceful, designing houses, listening to music (most sorts), movies (making & writing them occasionally too!) and karaoke-for-therapy. We are conscious consumers and choose fair trade, socially just, sustainable and organic options as much as we can.
Our 1st experience of Airbnb was in New York in 2012 where we stayed on a heritage-listed ferry boat anchored in New Jersey - the hosts were wonderful and the views from the ferry of the Manhattan skyline were amazing!!!
We love Airbnb because it's contributing to the development of the 'new currency of reputation and trust'. There's a couple of powerful TED talks by Rachel Botsman on 'collaborative consumption' that you might like to check out on Youtube - the most recent one talks about Airbnb.
We have 3 Airbnb listings : a funky room, a self-contained duplex and the Cheetah Cave! Please check them out and if you're interested to book please be in touch with any questions.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon : )
