I'm away for a few weeks, and my lovely live-in landlord suggested I could rent out my single bedroom when I am away. Only 12 min drive to airport, or train/bus option. Room has a built in wardrobe and a chest of drawers. The household is friendly and relaxed, with the possibility of other airbnb guests in other rooms (have me folk from Iceland, Chile, Fiji....very interesting).
House has a unique induction heating system, large vegie garden, aquaponics and chickens. A little urban farm.
Comfortable bed in lightfilled room. We call the house a little urban farm. There is a large aquaponics system (with rainbow trout), chickens, beehives, huge vegetable garden, loads of compost bins. Folk often ask if they can pop over for a tour and learn more about sustainable living.

There is a young toddler in the house so we ask that you respect his sleep times and are diligent about keeping front and back doors closed for his safety.
Our house is alive with all sorts of plants and animals busy growing and working away. The bees furiously making honey, the fish growing and providing nutrient for the plants, the worms processing fish wastes, the plants de-nitrifying the water for the fish, the chickens processing kitchens scraps into eggs, the spiders catching bugs and compost and all sorts of microbes and subsoil biota providing for the plants.
We have all sorts of people stay and are pretty flexible. Here are some of the usual practices
1. We take our shoes of at the door. We do this cause if feels nice, reduces the work cleaning floors and means we are not traipsing compost throughout the house. We have several crocs at the doors for us and guests. We usually just have a thickish pair of socks for the house in winter.
2. We don't kill all our household spiders. They do a job keeping the insects down in the house, especially when processing honey and they are fascinating to watch.
3. We turn appliances off at the power switches. A fella had this device and demonstrated how much electricity was being leaked when they were left on.
4. We have three bins in the kitchen - one for food scraps for the chooks, one for recycling and one for rubbish. Oh and please, no bottled water - its an eco nightmare and Melbourne's tap water is delicious.
5. When cooking, you must remain in the kitchen. 80% of household fires start with unattended cooking - so we ensure against this by insisting everyone remain in the kitchen when the stove is on.
6. Only Paul works the wood and pellet heaters and the auto ceiling bed.
7. We enjoy children and welcome them to our house. Our house has at least the usual array of risks and you must supervise your children in the home at all times. We have a pond, bees and all sorts of ways to injure oneself. Please respect the risks.
8. Please respect others in the house who may be working. We like to reduce the noise after 10pm and before 8am.
9. We do not accept bookings from guests who are not vaccinated. We have a young son and like science, reasoning and randomised, double blind, placebo controlled replicable tests.
10. We require that guests treat others in our home including women and other guests who may be gay equally.
