Our home:

My home is an 1890's Victorian home, situated in Geelong centre. It is a short walk to shopping, restaurants and the beach. I have a large park opposite and the train station is only a few minutes walk also.

The home is fully renovated and can sleep up to 8 people (in beds), however I have one room set up as an office, which is where the computer is.

There is a large outdoor covered patio area which can be used for outdoor cooking (bbq) and where those who wish to smoke may do so. I do not smoke and would appreciate that visitors smoke only outside.

About us:

I am a single, professional woman who likes to travel for up to 2 months at a time. I have visited many parts of Europe and the United States but still have so much more to see!

I do not own a motor vehicle, however the house is only an 8 minute walk to the train station to Melbourne and there are many buses that travel down the coast. Hire cars are also easily accessible. I have a bicycle and could organize for another.

Although I have a small dog, he would be looked after by a family member. The house is low maintenance as it is mainly all courtyard.
