Our sunny studio is tucked away in our garden backing onto a quiet reserve. Wake to bird song within a 7 minute walk to an organic supermarket, boutique shops, trendy cafes and bars and a 20 min bus ride to the CBD. Perfect for one or a couple.
We provide a starter breakfast of the following staples: bread and butter, a selection of jams and enough gluten free muesli to tide you over for the first couple of mornings. Also provided are tea bags, ground coffee and milk.
There is also a folder with information on the vicinity including bus timetables, wifi and password.
There is a full-sized fridge and the kitchenette has a kettle, toaster, 2- ring plug-in stove top and microwave oven and kitchen bench and sink. If guests are staying more than 3 days and I am around they are are welcome to do a load of washing in our washing machine and I can provide a small line for drying under the courtyard roof or outside depending on the weather.
The studio is self contained and accessed from our driveway which runs beside our house to the studio's front entrance. It has a front and back courtyard, both with privacy screens from the main house. Guests can access the reserve behind our garden. This provides a shortcut to the local Westlynn shops and, although a shared space, is also a lovely spot to sit on a summer evening should you feel inclined.
Общение с гостями
We like to give our guests privacy. It is a self contained space perfect for a couple or single and so attracts those who enjoy their own space. However, guests are very welcome to come knock on our back door or ring if wish for any guidance/assistance. We're a friendly household and happy to help out/chat. When we're away keys will be left in a lockbox on the property.
Другие важные подробности
The front courtyard is adjacent to the neighbour's bedroom and so socialising will need to be behind closed doors or in the back yard after 10.00pm weekdays and 10.30 pm Friday/Saturdays so they can sleep. There is a courtyard off the bedroom with lighting and shelter.
The neighbour's cats come visit as soon as they see an open door. He is a very friendly short haired Siamese. Possibly our other neighbour's ginger cat, Charlie, might visit also but less likely.
Our house is opposite Primary school grounds and so finding a park on the street near us between 8.30 and 9.15am and 2.45 to 3.15pm Mon to Fri is to be avoided. Outside these times there is space closeby and the parking is free of course. We also relax on our back verandah but screening gives us both privacy. Also, there may be a time we would need to pass the bedroom courtyard enroute to the compost or to the park but will keep this to a minimum/avoid if possible, when we have guests.
There are 2 steps up from the bedroom to the bathroom and living area with a handrail and optional night light.
We also have another air bnb myself and a friend manage and run as an art retreat at Waihi Beach held once a month all year round: (URL HIDDEN)
