Hi, my name is Loretta and I am the face behind Good House Holiday Rentals.
As your host I am more than happy to answer all your questions on the properties I manage. My unique management service is backed by a network of locals, which ensures properties are perfectly prepared and guests are comfortable and more importantly have a wonderful stay.
When I'm not working, I get to spend time with my 2 active gorgeous boys, and with my terrific hubbie we too love to travel as much as we can. Actually it's due to our past experiences as Airbnb guests in Australia and overseas, that my management service started. We tried Airbnb and loved the concept and so
Good House was born and the rest as they say is history.
I am a born and bred Melbournian of Italian (Website hidden by Airbnb) of course I love all things Italian....language, food and culture.
Our family motto is life is for living and it's wonderful experiences which enrich our lives.
Thanks for your interest.
