I'm from Australia and work as a Business Project Manager in Healthcare. I travel a lot and usually try and head overseas at least once a year. I have lived in Europe many years ago and I treat anywhere I stay like it's my own, so I am clean and responsible and respectful of others property. I'm also a homeowner so I appreciate the need for good tenants.
I love the idea of a home away from home and something a little more personal than a hotel room. It's also really great to have a local providing some advice and tips, especially if travelling by yourself!
Happy to reciprocate the hospitality if you ever venture Downunder!
