The Shady Rest is a quiet location in bushland, with birds aplenty. A place to unwind away from traffic noise. 11 kms or 25 minutes by train to the city and 20 minutes to the beach. The train is a 10 minute walk. We have 2 bedrooms - Bedroom 1 has a double bed, Bedroom 2 has a single bed, and basic breakfast provisions (Toaster, kettle, fridge etc, so the main kitchen is not available to guests). Exclusive use of private bathroom across hall.

1 bedroom with a double bed, 1 room with a single bed, so it's perfect for a couple, family of 3 or for 3 people here for the car racing or football, if you don't mind sharing a bed.
The single bedroom is shared by a piano which you are welcome to play respectfully.
This room has a TV.
You have the sole use of a newly renovated bathroom (toilet in the room), with a hairdryer supplied, along with shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and towels.
Although there is a bath, we ask that you only shower due to the water constraints(unless required to bathe a child).
A kettle, toaster, plates, bowls, mugs, glasses and cutlery are supplied, along with tea, coffee, juice and basic breakfast provisions. I will clear the dirty dishes each day, so you are free to go off exploring.
You can enter via either the front or back door (same key), which takes you through the living area of the house to your rooms. We have a sloping driveway or steps which will bring you down to the house, so you need to be ok with slopes.
We're friendly and approachable people, so we welcome you to come and go when it suits you, being mindful of others if this needs to be very early or very late.

During your stay you may like to take up the offer of a 45 minute Relaxation Session at special rates for our guests.
We'd prefer that you don't bring unbooked guests home please.
The price is for 2 guests and an additional $20 will be charged for a third guest.
This is a totally non-smoking site, both inside and out. As we adjoin a National Park Reserve, we are aware of minimising the risk of fires, so would ask that you are mindful of this.
Considerate alcohol consumption would be appreciated.
As Australia is the driest continent on earth, we are sensible with our water consumption and would ask our guests to do the same. Although there is a bath, it's not used(unless required to bathe a child).
We can't accommodate pets, as we don't have fences.
My husband, Ron, and I are easy to get on with people, who like to walk around looking at buildings, museums, gardens etc, rather than getting involved in the night life. We like chatting to people, but don't expect to be entertained.
We both speak English and I also speak German and basic Auslan.
We like a mixture of experiences, so sometimes we are happy to have things done for us, like on the cruise where I don't need to cook, but we are also happy to cook our own meals for some of the time, which is why we like AirBnB rather than a hotel. We're looking forward to meeting people from around the world as we host visitors.
We look forward to hearing from you soon.
