We love hosting guests through Airbnb and are happy to work in with you during their stay - if we are at home of an evening you are more than welcome to join us for dinner and/or a glass of wine however if you would like your own space to relax and unwind after a long day at work, that's fine too!
If you do have any questions in the lead up to or during your stay, we are more than happy to share our local knowledge and can recommend some great coffee shops, restaurants and things to do in the Canberra area.
The body corporate corporate enforce a relatively strict set of rules which will be attached but the main contentious issue is that the entire property is smoke free. Please respect these rules and alternative smoking areas will be shown on arrival.

My name is Ben and I am a 30 year old Australian who has a love for travel and new experiences. I have spent a significant amount of time travelling over the last 6 years exploring, SE Asia, Europe, USA, Central and South America.
Professionally, I am a Project Manager, having been employed by the same organisation for the past 12 years and enjoy keeping an eye on current affairs both internationally and domestically and love having a good chat about these and learning from other people.
My real passion is fighting the battle between staying fit and healthy and enjoying too much good food and drink and am aiming to run my 5th marathon in April.
My girlfriend, Karla, and I intend to travel to Europe later this year and after having used Airbnb a few times have decided to open up our newly purchased apartment for others to enjoy with us, to assist in funding our next adventure.
Karla is 27 years old whose biggest passion would have to be fashion. She currently works as an Area (Training) Manager for a finance company and spends quite a lot of time on the road. She is developing a love for cooking and enjoys keeping healthy and active.
In 2011, Karla spent 6 months working for Royal Caribbean as a Ship Retail Manager and got to travel through the Mediterranean and Caribbean, though she tells me it was far from a holiday.
In 2013, we spent a month travelling around the South West USA in a campervan with the highlight being the eye opening Burning Man and all the beautiful National Parks.
Thanks for taking the time to read a bit about us and look forward to chatting soon.
