coming from sydney, an airbnb member from castlemaine, sturt old boy, 60 or so ,usually well behaved !!
John was easy to communicate with and left clear instructions for us regarding the key, as he was away for our stay. Johns place was just as described, light and airy and modern, but really comfortable and homey too. It was peaceful and it was a great place to watch the thunderstorm from with all the glass. Johns place was very easy access to all that Castlemaine has to offer too. John also left us some breakfast, which was kind and called the next day to make sure we enjoyed ourselves. The bed and bedding was very comfy and we slept well, and everything was very clean. Thanks John, it was just what what we needed!
Had a great 3 nights, super comfy bed, great shower, sunny living room. Our host was chatty and friendly.
Was a tad awkward to recieve a telling-off about getting up for breakfast at 10am, so late risers may want to keep this in mind.
John was very accommodating, relaxed and easy going. We had to change our arrival time and there was no problem. John made us feel very welcome. The house was exactly as described. John left us to our own devices-we were out all day and arrived back late, which didn't matter. We also slept in the next morning, which was also fine. John left a message that he had gone fishing and when we awoke we found a lovely breakfast awaiting us. It was nice to have a quiet breakfast in his lovely, open planned, living area.
As we were leaving, John arrived back, so it was great to be able to thank him personally and say goodbye.
We had a relaxing, short stay, which is just what we wanted. Thanking you, Fleur and Paul.
Highly recommended. John has a beautiful home and is a lovely host who made it all seemless. We were treated to a wonderful breakfast, some fabulous travel tips and made to feel welcome. The room is perfectly furnished and the home is tidy and artfully decorated. An excellent place to stay for a short visit.
The listing description is accurate and the home is wonderfully decorated, with a stylish design. The bedroom is a good size with very a comfortable bed. It was perfect for our overnight stay.
The location is close to town with easy parking available. Highly recommended for an overnight stay or short visit to Castlemaine.
We appreciated John's travel tips too and really enjoyed our conversations with him.
The host canceled this reservation 27 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
uncomplicated and spontaneous
John is a warm, open, erudite & interesting man. He graciously shares his creative home, which is delightful, & all one could wish for! John was very considerate & keen to provide us with our requirements. The bed was super-comfortable, his life stories were great, & the bathroom even had a heated floor!! Yes!!! HIGHLY recommended.
Arriving lost & late was not a great start but all was forgiven over a late night cup of tea. John is a warm, engaging, generous host. The room is pleasantly basic; the bathroom nice & roomy, the home artsy, cheerful & warm. Short drive to town: lots to explore; funky coffee shop options; evening meals--not so much choice. Rug up if you're visiting Castlemaine in winter!
This was our first experience with airbnb and it was delightful. Even though John was unable to be there for our visit we found his home inviting and very comfortable. It was great getting on site parking as our car was loaded and we didn't want to park on the road. His home is very stylishly designed and decorated. It was a cold night and we were warm inside. We highly recommend staying there and would not hesitate to do so again. Thanks John
John was very welcoming. He provided useful information about places to eat and things to do around Castlemaine, and great conversation. The house and room were lovely. We had a great night's sleep and a nice breakfast to wake up to.
What a pity that John arrived so late , making his visit very short as was such an interesting guest . No problems at all .
Même s'il a été difficile de communiquer avec John (lui ne parlant pas du français et nous difficilement en australien..), nous avons réussi à ce que John passe un bon séjour à Biarritz et retrouve ses fils.
John is nice, friendly, and clean. He left my place exactly as when he checked in. I would definately recommend him
John is nice and friendly, he keep clean and safe for my apartment. I would high recommend for him
Great friendly guests who left the cottage neat and tidy, we would highly recommend them!
John was very pleasant, great guest. Recommend.
Mario and I had such a fantastic time with John. He is fun and intelligent and has a great sense of humour. It was great to have him around and get to know him. Such an easy person to have stay - nothing was a problem, a very understanding and kind person. Our door is always open for him.
A memorable visit/visitor! John and his friend,Chris, were interesting and good-humoured guests - very easy to share space with. I have no hesitation in recommending John to other hosts.
John Tapper is delightful company,he is respectful and a very considerate house guest. John arrived at my home before I did, as I was at work. John greeted me and welcomed me as though he was my host, we laughed and continued to laugh throughout John's stay.
Lovely well travelled and knowledgable gentleman.
