Kevin was a great host - I loved all the extra touches such as yummy muesli and fresh baked bread. Very cute apartment in a lovely area.

We only have great things to say about Kevin and the flat. The accommodation was ideally located, very clean and tidy, well thought out, perfect. So much nicer to stay in such a beautiful location with coffee shops, parks, restaurants, pubs bars within walking distance. The city has a new perspective from North Adelaide and so easy. The free city circle route bus almost at the front door but easy walking distance past the Adelaide Oval if you prefer, all of North Adelaide's amazing pubs, restaurants, cafes, shops within 5 minutes. The perfect way to show the best of Adelaide!

Kevin and Stephanie's place is the true embodiment of what Airbnb can be. I arrived at this home late at night and it was like coming home, Kevin was so hospitable and friendly. The little welcome pack was such a treat. The home is in a great area and it was such a pleasure walking past parks and the cathedral to get to work in the city. The bed is comfortable and the bath was the perfect end to a long day. I cannot wait to return to this home on future trips to Adelaide.

This is a lovely little apartment in a wonderful part of the city. The apartment is small, but it's very well designed and you have there everything that you need. Kevin is a wonderful host too - very helpful. He even had little snacks for us when we checked in. Overall, this was a very positive experience !

Kevin could not have been more of a gracious and helpful host- from providing directions to reach the apartment to greeting us with a cheese platter, freshly baked bread and a whole host of helpful tips! We will definitely be staying here again if we get a chance to return to Adelaide- wonderful value, location and hospitality!

Loved Kevin's place! Although it is small, it had everything we needed. The bed was comfortable, the food gift was delicious, the house was clean and the bathroom is larger than expected, plus there is a full length mirror! My only negative was that it is really cold in winter and the heating isn't the best. Kevin was very accommodating with check in and out times too and communication was great! Thanks Kevin, we will be back.

Reflecting my positive outlook on life, I'm told that I smile a lot. Despite what's on the news, there are many good things to be enjoyed - including hosting guests with my partner and co-host Stephanie. I'm interested in many things and, having once been a teacher, believe in the idea and benefits of life-long learning. I completed a Master of Science degree only a few years ago to fulfill a life time ambition. Now I do some public speaking and visit schools to talk to students about astronomy, and show them views through telescopes. In addition to keeping on studying I enjoy the food and wine available in this part of Australia and visit some of our magnificent wine producing regions very frequently. I'm a migrant to Australia (from England) and rate Adelaide as one of the best spots in the world. If you are not in Australia and reading this - come and visit!
