Thank you for having me with you and your family for such a long time Jo! Your home made me feel comfy and safe during my internship ❤
Jo's family is very friendly and helpful. They lended me a bike for the 10 minute ride to my workplace in Manly and so I could also get very easily around beautiful and quiet Lota and also to the next villages Manly and Wynnum with all their nice cafes and restaurants! Jo's house is clean and modern and I really liked the guest bedroom and that I had my own bathroom too. The house is only 1,5 years old so there were no spiders or insects (which I was afraid of beforehand, but maybe their relaxed and nice cat is taking care of it too :-D ). It is very clean and the shower and the bed are big! The whole house and also the guest bedroom are nice and naturally bright lighted. Jo gave me space in the fridge and drove me to the supermarket so I could make myself meals during my long stay. The train station is in a nice waking distance and I could get easily to the city centre of Brisbane for a cheap price in about 45 minutes. Their is beautiful nature around the house (Lota creek) and you can enjoy a nice oceanview especially when it's high tide. Some people like to go fishing close to the neighbourhood and there are many beautiful and colourful birds to spot around. I would always recommend this homestay to my family and friends. Thank you Jo and have a wonderful new year 2019!
Jo and her family were all so welcoming and friendly. I stayed with them as I was relocating from overseas. They were so helpful and made me feel at home; it really was a lovely start to my move. Their house is lovely with everything you need. I would highly recommend this homestay to anyone, and hope to stay in contact with Jo and her family in the future.
