Our simple little spare room is available for short and long term stays. Comes with garden view, comfy bed, desk and privacy. Sharing the house with myself and partner Joel, and our pets, the seductive cat: Raul Maria and the grumpy mini dachshund Hans.. Lovely kitchen, bathroom (shared) and living area, and right next to Moreland train station.
We try our best to be considerate hosts full of lots of helpful tips on the area.
The room is a calm and simple space/ small yet sweet. Comes with a king single bed, large desk, side table and a couple of plants to keep you company. We would love to squeeze in a wardrobe but haven't quite worked out how it will fit yet : /
The room is right at the back of the house and looks out onto the garden. Lot's of privacy. During winter we have a oil heater to heat the space, and a hot water bottle to keep the bed warm, we have been told the space gets nice and cosy - ideal for some netflix watching in bed.
If you have large suitcases and are worried about space please let us know if you would like to store any items elsewhere in the house to make the space larger : )
You are welcome to use the kitchen, bathroom, laundry facilities, lounge area and the backyard. Though the backyard is where my dog lives, who is old and grumpy, so you may wish to leave him to go about his business. The bathroom is shared.
I work full time and Joel is studying. We're often home in the evenings to cook dinner etc. I'm happy to hang out, share cooking/ a bottle of wine whist you're here, or give you all the local hot tips. Otherwise if you would like to keep to yourself that's fine too!
The house comes with a dog, the small and cute Dachshund Hans. Hans is scared of strangers and is a bit anti social. His pretty face is best appreciated from afar.
The cat Raul Maria keeps to herself, generally towards the front of the house. She has been known to pretend that she is being starved in attempt to get guests to feed her ; )
As this is a home and not a b'n'b business please note that there are no daily cleaners to clean and pick up after you. The house will be in a normal clean and tidy state, but as it is an old house it will always look a little rough around the edges. For longer stays of more than 2 weeks I can arrange a mid stay clean for an extra cleaning fee.
One previous guest mentioned that you can hear the train from the house sometimes. This is true as we are very close to the train station, but as they mentioned, we find that it doesn't bother anyone very much.
I like to be friendly to the environment by conserving energy and water. So please be mindful when using electricity and having showers etc.
No smoking inside.
No unexpected guests.
This is my home so please be considerate and respectful.
