    Great report Michela,
    I am actually leaving the US in less than a month and will be going to New Zealand first and then Australia. I will be staying with quite a few Airbnb hosts over the course of my travels. Hopefully my experience is as positive as yours was.

      That sounds fantastic! I am planning to write a few more blog posts about how to stay with locals in Australia, there are more ways! Will catch up with you via email with regards to your trip too. Thanks for stopping by, Rosemary! Till soon! Michela 🙂

    Michela, you selected a great place to stay whilst in my hometown of Perth. It must have made for an even better time to have a lovely stay with someone like Maureen who’s hospitality and home made treats made you feel at home. Mmm fresh cooked nut and pineapple muffins would have smelt divine!
