Our renovated unit with outdoor sitting area and barbie will give you a true Aussie backyard living experience in suburban Adelaide! It is close to the beach and amenities, with good access to public transport and located on a quiet street.
We live in the main house at the front and work from home, so there will probably be someone around to help you if you need - but we won't bother you. We are happy to speak to you in English, Latvian or Russian.
This is a 50 square metre apartment in our back yard behind the main house. It's a completely separate building so you have plenty of privacy. It can comfortably accommodate a couple or can sleep a family (with a bit less living space). There is an open plan dining, kitchen and study area with queen sofa bed. In the bedroom, there's queen bed and a single folding bed. It has a separate bathroom with a basin, toilet and shower. Guests have their own outdoor undercover sitting area and a BBQ.

Interaction with guests
We work mainly from home but tend to be in and out a lot (school and extracurricular activities, travel and working with clients). Usually, someone is home at night and always available from the phone in the apartment or via text/email. Guests should also feel free to knock on the kitchen door if there's any help needed.
