This cosy retreat is great if you're visiting for work, study, sport & recreation or to see family and friends in the Albury area.
Fully self contained with plenty of space incl. full kitchen & bathroom, access to laundry.
Pet-friendly (see details elsewhere).
To our many fantastic stopover guests, regrettably we've had to change tack toward multi-night stays.

The space
The guest area is a fully self-contained granny flat/retreat under the main roofline of our family home. There's a spacious bedroom with walk-through robe to ensuite bathroom (shower and bath), the separate toilet is located off the bathroom.
The living/dining area is spacious, with gas wall furnace and reverse cycle air conditioning to keep you comfortable whatever the season. There are also ceiling fans in kitchen, living and bedroom.
There is a compact full kitchen with ceramic cooktop, electric wall oven, microwave (no dishwasher).
We welcome families, and can accommodate more than 2 kids with some notice.

For now the TV is a small LED flat-screen with Chromecast dongle, there's a DVD player and a CD/cassette/radio.

We no longer provide breakfast materials as standard, partly it's COVID safety, partly everyone wants a different kind of milk/bread/cereal these days and usually bring their own anyway.
We do provide tea and coffee including stovetop/moka.
If it would be helpful (e.g. if you have limited transport or mobility, or checking in late) we can provide basic breakfast supplies on special request.

We have a dog who can be quite vocal and exuberant to tell us someone new is about! Despite the big bark he just wants to play and is really a big sook. Generally we're present to meet guests on arrival so we can keep him out of the way if you're not a 'dog person', please let us know beforehand if you have a special aversion to dogs.
He does have the run of the whole yard, but is generally inside at night.

Where you’ll be

Thurgoona, New South Wales, Australia

Thurgoona, an Albury "suburb", has something of a country/bushland feel, our end of town has larger blocks and a bit more open space.
We're close to Charles Sturt University and Lake Hume. Most places within Albury-Wodonga are within about a 15-minute drive.
Albury is a great location for a stopover between Sydney and Melbourne, though we're aiming at longer stays these days.

During your stay

We love to help out with any queries about local services or sights, and something about warmer weather can encourage me to share homebrew/craft beer. BUT we are a family with 2 primary-age boys and usually they keep us pretty well occupied! We might be up for a chat, we might not.
