Gosh my beautiful detailed description has gone! Swallowed by the Grim Editor. I shall come back and re-do my wonderful description for you!
In the meantime, please know that I am always happy to do long term and will offer you very reasonable rates. By long term I mean longer than one month. The same applies to my Garden Bungalow with the possums. I love getting to know you from wherever you come from!
Large sun filled self contained former art studio with pleasant garden views and a nice vantage point from which to watch and feed the native birds. Total privacy to come and go as you please through the side access gate.
Please see my other listing for entry, location in the garden and the OUTSIDE toilet and bathroom which is solely for the use of the occupants of The Studio. The toilet and bathroom are approximately 14 paces away from the studio. The Studio is the brick building opposite the Garden Bungalow with Possums......the Possums often scamper over the studio roof too to give you bumps in the night. Both Ring Tailed and Brush Tailed Possums come here.
It has a LCD flat screen TV and video/DVD player. A good supply of books and maps of the area.
There is a bar fridge and a two ring hob top for your use. There is also a rice cooker and a slow cooker and a microwave oven. Those are the only cooking facilities.. There is a laundrette in the village.
There is a settee, huge king sized bed wardrobe and everything you need for your comfort.
The dual action air conditioner and heating has just been fitted and is working beautifully since the 16th February.
The train station is a gentle 5 minute walk away as is the bus stop. Parkdale is on the Frankstone line with direct access to the city and beyond.
Parkdale village is 5 minute walk away and has everything for your daily needs. Restaurants, coffee shops, a bank and a Post Office, chemists and doctors.....we even have an excellent library. All your aches and pains can also be sorted within a 5 minute walk.
Wifi is now fully available to the studio guests.
My place is lovely and gentle. You can stop and have a chat at the end of your day or you can have total privacy. I have spent 20 years visiting Australia from my English homeland and know my way round most of the Victorian tourist attractions.
Parking on the quiet road.
The home made marmalade is delicious. Both kumquat and orange for your breakfast! (will have to wait for the new batch!) Basics for your first few days will be provided and maybe a few little extras!
Henry my black Labrador lives here too....he is a Delta Service dog so is kind and gentle like his surroundings.
Smoking is allowed but I would prefer you to do so outside. There is a private patio area round the back of the studio or at the front under cover. Either place you are welcome!
The garden is superb for children, there are swings to swing, up side down or otherwise, there is grass to play on and a dog who loves nothing more than to be patted and fussed over.
Guest have access through the main double white gates. The back garden has private outdoor seating located by the back door of the studio. The mauve table and chairs in the centre of the garden you are welcome to use too.....and the seating area under cover by the main house. You are welcome to smoked anywhere outside with due consideration to other guests who may also be booked in.

Henry and Barbara live here. Barbara feeds Henry and if you feed Henry he will be your friend for life.....and every time you open the door, he will be there waiting for you.....and he knows about the back door! So please don't feed him.... He will love you just as much if you just smile at him and give him a pat.
Yes he will eat pickled onions and yes they can kill him......love chocolate and that can kill him too. Please don't!
Please keep the access gates shut to keep my dog Henry in and safe.
Please also be aware that water is in short supply and costs a fortune so please be kind and have quick power showers. Same with electricity. Switch heating and lights off overnight and when you go out.
