Altona Beach


This is us, dressed up for an event, we look happy because we are! But we don't always look like this first thing in the morning! :-)

Another birthday! David, I won't mention his age!

This is us having a laugh with our kids when they were both home, doesn't happen too often unfortunately. Our daughter is married and lives in Alice Springs, (nice for a visit) and our son lives and works in Beijing, China.

Some of girls who have lived with us, on one of their birthdays.

Yet another birthday, of one of our precious girls, we DO love to celebrate birthdays.

Enough of birthdays, you want to see where we live, right? Here it is a new townhouse.

The front reception area, nice place to have breakfast and watch the birds outside through the window.

Guests Students

We are looking for a friendly female homestay student who might like care but enjoys her own independence. David and Peta are a professional Aussie couple who have a happy, friendly, caring environment and live by Christian values. We love having students live with us now our grown kids have left. We have been hosting international students for 10 years, (you can chat with our happy former girls if you like).
We treat all the girls who live with us as family to help understand the culture, studies, banking, and anything at all if needed. Most of our past students from ages 16 to 34 stay in contact with us for further chats, advice or just hugs across the distance as needed.
We live in a beautiful new home in Altona, which is only 8-10 mins walk to restaurants, cafes, shops, beach, and transport. The home is centrally heated with air con ducting into each room. Rooms all have built in mirrored robes with shelving and hanging space, a desk, bed, drawers, and bedding. There are two bathrooms, with toilets in each. We are happy to provide all food, with the evening meal cooked should you want it. We also are happy if you want to cook. Shared laundry facilities.
Altona is a wonderful suburb, we are walking distance to the Cherry Lake where you will see native birds and wildlife. The beach is safe with a patrolled area for swimming. It is the friendliest suburb, and only 13 kms to the city and close to universities/schools serviced by trains or buses.
Enquiries welcome by email, Messenger, FaceTime. We cannot wait to meet you and begin assisting you in your move to our fantastic country.
Peta and David.
