The space
Retro Granny BnB is a super-clean family-friendly grannyflat set up to be a private space that is fun, welcoming and nostalgically functional with quality inclusions to leave you feeling nurtured / nourished.

Find Retro Granny BnB on fazebook or inslagram for more photos, updates and general information.

EASY ARRIVAL - arrive at your leisure. Access your key from the keylocker - details will be in your 'Thanks for Booking' message

KING BED The grannyflat most comfortably sleeps 2 adults, but if you are willing to use the living area or bedroom floorspace then there are 2 floor mattresses, a portacot, and bedlinen you may help yourself to to bed down additional adults/kids.

KITCHENETTE is fully-equipped with oven, grill, kettle, sandwich press, rice cooker, microwave, 3/4 size fridge/freezer, cooking utensils, saucepans, iron and ironingboard.

COOLING - aircon in the living area and a ceiling fan in the bedroom.

TV - located in the bedroom.

WIFI - go for it :) Unlimited use while you are here. There is also a data cable connection (yellow cord in the hall cupboard)

FURNISHINGS - We have enjoyed creating a cosy and fun space reminiscent of the flat's vintage era. The bathroom is potentially the same as your nana had (see photo). I bet if you think hard enough you can probably remember someone you know having those same tiny pink and white tiles. If clean/convenient/comfortable/affordable/nostalgic is more important to your stay than new/shiny/modern then Retro Granny BnB is a great choice.

Guest access
The whole one bedroom grannyflat is yours to use. To enhance your stay the flat has it's own OUTDOOR SITTING SPACE, a shared BBQ and a shared LAUNDRY with washer, dryer, clothes lines.

Other things to note
Life is short.

We look forward to 'Retro Granny' being a comfortable base for you to make some fantastic memories here in Newcastle.

I love the adventure-factor that airbnb brings to travelling. It completely floats my boat to be unearthing a great Airbnb to use as a base for discovering new places / flavors / experiences (or to just bunker down and hang out in). As a host I've loved setting up our grannyflat as a private and comfortable pad where guests can feel safe and nurtured while they explore the region we proudly call home, (or work or visit friends or family). As a family we love Eurovision, the Woodford Folk Festival, roadtripping in our slide-on camper, bike rides in search of Newcastle's ultimate thickshake, and frollicing in our togs at Lambton Pool any chance we get. I am self-employed as a Parenting Consultant/Mentor. My business is called Love Parenting and I specialise in helping parents reduce overwhelm through growing connection and fostering independence. Playing a role in helping people feel settled delights me.
