The hosts for this property are very friendly and professional. I was a last minute booking staying overnight in Geelong for business and felt that I had a home base for my short stay. Excellent room accommodation and very comfortable bedding choices. As a BnB the breakfast was also great and check in and out very easy. Thanks Joan and family for making my visit so welcoming.

We stayed in the studio apartment, it is fully contained everything you need for a overnight or a longer stay. Our guests were very helpful to our needs. Would stay again if the opportunity rise in the future.
