My partner and I share a beautiful home together in Gembrook. We are both artists and musicians who love nature, travel and meeting new people. We are easy going, friendly and down to earth individuals. Our house hold is vegetarian, however there are many amazing cafes and restaurants a short walk from our door to accommodate all dietary needs. We have an extremely friendly Burmese cat named Lola who has been known to convert many a dog lover. If you are a musician, this is the ideal place to go as we are both musicians and there is also a nearby recording studio. I am well travelled, having spent many years overseas, including having lived in India, Europe and many other places. I enjoy the gypsy lifestyle and love connecting with people on this path. Amongst many things, I am a barista and we have a cafe quality espresso machine and organic coffee so we can make yummy coffee for you. I also love cooking tasty nutritious vegan meals and have a small garden out the back with fresh herbs, apples, citrus and vegetables. I love gardening and spending time outdoors. I am a herbalist and can share with you my knowledge of medicinal plants. If you play an instrument please bring it so we can make some good noise. I cannot live without GREAT coffee, music and literature. I also make hand made macrame jewellery and offer lessons and sell pieces. We do not watch television however there is a DVD player and large flat screen tv in the lounge room and wireless internet, loads of cool movies and books, vast mp3 collection for entertainment. My partner is a good cook and plays guitar.
