I live in this attractive leafy suburb with a delightful young Colombian couple (here to study English) and my rag doll cat Miagi. This is peaceful neighbourhood, but is only 20 minutes (by train) away from the bright lights of the city.
I have two bedrooms upstairs for guests, and all the linen (including pillows) is fresh and new. Both rooms have double beds, a desk, bedside table & lamp, chest of drawers and wardrobe. A bathroom (with shower and bath) is adjacent.
In warmer weather the lawn and courtyard are ideal for leisurely reading, relaxing and barbecuing, and...we have a hammock! We are only 7 minutes walk from the train and tram. I regularly walk either along the beach (8 min drive away) or around the Botanic Gardens, so you're welcome to join me. In winter we snuggle up, read and watch movies and in summer have barbecues in the backyard or out in a park or at the beach.
