Relocated to Australia from Surrey, UK last year after spending the last 7 years between Europe and Australia. I am English and my husband, Darren is Australian. Darren is an Ironman triathlete and coach and I am a performer and teacher of aerial skills. We are happy to welcome both tourists and those seeking a more active break in the scenic Geographe area.
We have travelled through Europe and Australia and love staying at Air B'n'B accommodation because we have always met great people and really got to know the local area. We aim to help you have the best stay in our area and so will respect your privacy, but if you are interested, we are always happy to advise with local places to visit, eat, events and adventures!
