No Smoking in the lodge thank you, there is a fabulous view from the seat on the front verandah to smoke in the fresh air, please dispose of your butts respectfully so I dont find them later in my garden.
Rain water is free but when it runs out its expensive, please use with consideration, please only have a big deep bath if it's raining, and consider short showers. it's all a treat until there's no water!!
Your consideration is much appreciated.
Just relax and please take your shoes off in my home.
Be mindful with the use of the tanked rain water! Only bath when it's raining please, water is precious here on Bruny.

The country side is inundated with all kinds of animals including little native antichinus (native mammal like a rat), rats, mice and so on, they are all looking for a warm cosy place to breed and eat, It's a job keeping them out of the house so if you would be so kind as to take care with disposing of food scraps appropriately and keeping my kitchen clean.
Firewood is in wood shed, please don't use wood from elsewhere on the property it's likely to be green.

Of Dutch descent, born and raised in Victoria , spent my early 20's backpacking through Europe and North Africa. Lived and worked in Holland for a time
I discovered Tasmania in the early 80's and decided to make it my home base.
Bruny Island has been my home for 25 years, I raised my son here and have enjoyed the hands on challenge of designing and building much of "Seaview Lodge" myself with the help of some very skilled/ creative friends over the years, using many wonderful Tasmanian timbers and pre loved /collected materials.
My passion for gardening and growing fresh food is on going as the seasons allow.
Apart from my part-time work my leisure time is taken up by kayaking, oil/water painting, managing the garden and maintenance/ landscaping of this small property, designing clothing, collectable art cards/ posters and bee keeping.
I fully enjoy the cultural exchange that travellers offer and have been a wwoof host for over 10 years.
I have travelled through Europe and North Africa, Sri Lanka, Bali kayaked in Canada, mini visit to the states and most recently a road trip through the back roads of France.
My home is a safe and warm environment that I am happy to share when convenient to my agenda.
I look forward to meeting new travellers and understand totally the need to have a warm clean place to rest.
