About the property

Originally used as an Embassy, this elegant house has been furnished to provide a "home away from home" for people coming to Canberra for work. While it retains the timeless elegance of marble stairs, crystal chandeliers and French doors to the balcony, the house has been refurbished to a high standard and offers comfortable accommodation in lockable single rooms which share bathrooms and separate toilets, or couples suites with own bathroom. The communal kitchen and dining areas are spacious and well equipped with appliances, crockery , cutlery and cookware. You can relax in the beautiful upstairs lounge, watch television or a DVD movie, or browse among the library of books stored there. Opening off this space is a beautiful covered balcony, where you can relax with a glass of wine and watch the sunset over Woden.

About the flatmates

You even get fed in this guest house occupied by people who have come to Canberra for work. However our different backgrounds and life experiences make for an interesting social and communal environment. We enjoy sitting together for the evening meal, but for those working late or out socialising, dinner is left in the fridge for later or to become lunch the next day. There's always a snack to be put together from the communal pantry and fridge. We all enjoy the freedom of being able to explore Canberra, assisted by suggestions from live in manager about great places to visit. A large family will be well catered for in the chandelier ballroom where beds are set up to sleep 6 people. A unique experience to live like an Ambassador on your next visit to Canberra! Bookings are essential for this short stay suite as it's VERY popular.
There are plenty of activities for the whole family with walking trails around the house leading to bushy areas where kangaroos abound. Some even visit our front lawn to enjoy the tubs of water left for them during the hot dry spells.
This secure property is only 5 minutes from Canberra hospital and the local Mawson shops. Then there's the nearby Woden precinct, where shopping mall, restaurants, cinemas, gyms, clubs, bus interchange plus heaps of different ethnic eateries are located. Quiet but close - a great combo.
