Interaction with guests

I work for myself so that keeps me busy, I also go out often and I'm away often too, however when i'm home I always enjoy a chat and a coffee or glass of wine and some advice on where to go, when and how to get there.
It's always nice to share a meal sometimes, but respectfully giving you your space too.
I really enjoy having people from all over the world come and stay with me.

The location was great. The house was at less than 5 min walking distance from Redfern station which is very convenient to go all the touristic places (even Sydney Bluesox baseball stadium I went!). Also there are several restaurants and bars you can enjoy your stay even more right near the house. Also, Mel was one of the greatest airbnb host I have encountered. She is a super duper friendly person and gave me lots of travel tips! If you like dogs, you will definitely love this place because you will be able to meet the sweetest labradoodle, Harry!

Mel's home is very conveniently located, close to the train, cafes and bars. The room is clean and Mel provides everything you could need in the room! If you're looking for a sleep in, this may not be the place because the dog is quite loud. Other than that, the stay was perfect

Great location and great place! Mel’s place was just as the photos depicted, spacious, airy, light, modern and beautiful and artistically furnished. In a super location within easy walking distance to all you could need and a lovely park nearby too! Supermarket an easy 2 min walk away too! Mel was super easy to communicate with, clear and easy checkin and the whole experience was just great! and a bonus is I loved her Dog Harry too.

We had a really great four night stay with Mel, who was a wonderful & welcoming host! The room was clean, with sweet touches such as towels and sunscreen provided. The location was perfect - in a pleasant neighbourhood close to the city. Best of all, going back to Mel's furry companion, Harry the labradoodle, really made us feel at home :)

Staying with Mel has been fantastic. I booked the room as an initial place to stay as I’ve moved here on a working holiday visa. I could not have asked for a better place to stay. She has been so helpful with everything I need and giving me advice on what to do next. Harry the labradoodle has been cherry on top of the cake. She is very well behaved and loveable. I look forward to visiting Mel and Harry again in the future.

I work for myself as a commercial photographer and director of photography and I love it!
I have an office at home so sometimes i'm at home during the day working whilst other times I'm out working on location or at my studio.
Harry (my dog) and I go walking every morning. She will greet you very enthusiastically when you arrive at the house and be ready for a scratch on her tummy from you to say hello.
It's great to meet new people from all over the world and have a chat over a coffee or a wine and share my local knowledge with you, and hear about your travelling experiences, but I also respect your privacy, and my work keeps me pretty busy too!
I love being an Air BnB host and have made some great friends from the guests who have stayed with me from all over the world.
I am aware a lot of people are looking for longer term accommodation, however, short term stays suits me, and I'm not looking for any guests to stay longer than 1 month.
I look forward to meeting you.
