We have had many people stay in our unit in Carrum Downs recently and after talking to all of them it makes an interesting conversation as to why they chose to stay in Carrum Downs.
The reasons are vast and varied and represents a cross section of differing scenarios.
Usually when you provide accommodation for visitors it is for a weekend away, a 2 night stay or a romantic getaway but these 6 reasons to stay in Carrum Downs are far from it
Often times it is for very personal reasons such as these.
Stay In Carrum Downs Unit
Before I get into the top seven we would like to invite you to stay in our fully furnished and fully self contained two bedroom unit. We describe it as “cosy” because that is exactly what it is.
Nestled in the bowl of a quiet court and close to parkland, public transport, retail shopping precinct and hotels and restaurants, it is perfect for…. well, keep reading to find out why.
A Place To Rest and Recuperate
Julie and her daughter came across from Tasmania in early November 2015. They arrived on a Sunday and stayed for 9 nights.
Julie’s daughter had a medical procedure done at Peninsula Private Hospital and could not fly for a minimum 7 days. They spent their time recuperating in our granny flat until she was fit enough to fly back to Tassie.
Temporary Interstate Accommodation
A week later we got the following booking enquiry. Here it is.
We accepted the request immediately as living out of a suitcase in a motel for extended periods of time is not ideal when working hard all day.
We helped Brian by doing his washing and changing his bed linen regularly. We were really sorry to see him go as he was a fantastic fellow.
Family Get Together To Celebrate a Birthday
Lauren grew up in Bermagui, N.S.W but she was doing her officer training at Cerberus Naval Base Crib Point.
Her family drove from Bermagui to spend 3 nights with Lauren as it was her birthday. Her parents and sister were out everyday doing the tourist things and at night the two sisters partied.
Visiting His Young Daughter In Skye
Neil is from Newcastle, N.S.W. He wanted somewhere to stay that was close to his daughters mothers house in Skye. Our 2 bedroom unit was perfect for him he said.
He collected his daughter and bought her stay with him for 2 days. They went to the zoo, the aquarium and the beach.
When Neil left we found the following in a hand written note for us.
Attending A Rock Climbing Training Course
Next was this message we got from a wife and mother from Sydney.
Hi Lesley my husband Colin and daughter Lauren are travelling to Bayside Rock climbing gym for a training camp. They will be out for most of weekend. Your place looks great for them.
Flying in from Sydney, Colin and his daughter, Laura, stayed in our unit so the young girl could attend rock climbing training sessions at Bayside Rock. They stayed for 2 nights while Laura was put through her paces in the art of rock climbing.
Once again a hand written thank you note was left.
Receiving these hand written thank you notes validates that what we are trying to do is working. Our goal is to make your stay in Carrum Downs as enjoyable as possible.
Stopover While Travelling Around Australia
June and her husband Jack, from Peyia, Paphos, Cyprus sent us this reservation enquiry.
Of course they stayed in our unit and loved the fact it is centrally located to both Melbourne CBD and the Mornington Peninsula.
We learnt so much talking to them as they recently retired from operating a Bed and Breakfast in Cyprus for expat Brits.
Commercial Diving Course in Carrum Downs
We did not know there was a commercial diving school in Carrum Downs but when we got this potential rental we had to do our homework.
Seems the diving business is a mere 4klms from our unit. Perfect for anyone who needs accommodation near Professional Diving Services.
We look forward to hosting this young man.
Short Term Work Assignment in Bangholme
Bangholme, a short 6 klms from here, is home to the Eastern Treatment Plant. Imagine our surprise when this gentleman enquired about a long term stay in Carrum Downs.
We only received this message today and have not booked him to stay but will go through the process of talking direct, establishing the correct processes and making a decision.
The pleasing thing is that he knows we are booked out until the end of May but he is willing to stay elsewhere until our granny flat is available.
