This was a perfect base for exploring Canberra, heading out to do some walking in the Brindabellas and heading down the coast for a day. There's so much to see and do in and around Canberra and Leanne's place is a comfortable, relaxed and easy base for doing it all.

Hubby, son and I had a fantastic stay with Leanne, Andrew and her sons. A spacious, well equipped room with queen and trundle bed, spotlessly clean and with so many thoughtful touches. The whole family are so friendly, laid back welcoming and went over and above with genuine hospitality. My son felt right at home...a little too at home at times...and wants to stay again soon! We loved the unusually warm and quiet quality of the strawbale house, the friendly chooks and beautiful views. A couple of minutes drive from Stromlo mountain bike trails and convenient to main road connections to all parts of Canberra.

We loved our stay here. Leanne & Andrew were so friendly and welcoming. We loved meeting their chickens too. Comfy room and beds (1 double, 1 pull out). Super quiet too. Comfy chairs & solid table to sit/eat/write/work at. Great little kitchenette (fridge, microwave, kettle, mugs, bowls, plates & cutlery etc) & own bathroom. Peaceful views and an easy 10-15min drive to city centre. Adults could probably cycle it as many cycle lanes and paths around.

It's a lovely large space, easy to spend a few days in, great for repacking, and very comfortable. I really enjoyed the time I spent there, and appreciated the home made meusli, and the little kitchen. The family are hospitable, but very respectful of my privacy too.

Lennes This is the second time I used the Lenne’s place within a month. As I mentioned in an earlier review it says lot about the place. Though the Lenne is the one who runs the place for you, Scott and whole family is there if you need any information. Place is located just out of the city centre, very quiet and calm location, Traditional style construction with straw-bale and clay room is warm in the cooler days and cold in the warmer days. Large cozy room gives you the freedom to relax and think. Clean spacious bathroom with overhead and towel heating are very positive factors in cold Canberra. Moreover, the kitchenette with all the necessities will give you freedom to make a sandwich or toast whenever you need it. Since I was using my own transport, I can’t comment on the access through public transport, But I came to know that there are buses at scheduled times to the local shopping centre and to the city To sum up, I say i am not looking for another location in my future travel to Canberra. Thank you very much Lenne and all the family members.

I spent three nights at Leanne's house, and intend to use it again another three nights. Think it sums up everything I have to say about the place. Located just a few kilometres from the city centre, but surrounded by nature, birds, and gorgeous views. Leanne and her family are definitely super hosts - very warm, welcoming, generous and kind. I wish I could have stayed longer. The room is very comfortable and warm even in cold days I was there. Thank you Leanne and all the family !

Finding the usual, quirky or something just a bit different in furniture, a piece Artwork or crockery or odd tile, something that has lost its "matching mate" to become part of the mix & match collection within our home; you can see in the layout and details of our guest room and, our home really. The garden is a source of many things beautiful and is a creative outlet. A lot of cooking happens in our home - our children like - cakes so lots are cooked! We love music and love the quiet too.
We as a family can be very busy at times...and then we like to relax...
As a family our travels plans are more about a summer beach holiday...yet one day perhaps New Zealand or India - we all love Indian cuisine; the aroma especially.
Part of joining airbnb is to connect with the larger world community to meet other cultures, as we don't have the ability to travel too far ourselves right now.
