I am a historian/writer in my 50s-female. I have a daughter Elena who lives at home. I work from home but we have a beach house and I often go there to work as well. I love cooking and good coffee (we have an espresso machine) and books and writing. I am well travelled as well and have lots of local knowledge. We love having people to stay ... provided you are happy to be fairly independent. We are also happy to chat about extras like doing washing, sharing meals and if you are considering a trip on the great ocean road —using our beach house. We have 3 dogs and they love visitors but they can be a bit overwhelming at times!
