Your Elite International Private Homestay welcomes you in the style established by the Japanese Cultural Visits during the 1990s. Experience the Australian lifestyle. Private, discreet and relaxing. Experienced Home Stay Provider.
Florilegia House was built in the 1930s in the traditional vintage of old Australian timber homes. It has been lovingly renovated to welcome your visit. With luxurious carpet in the living/dining room, and 10′ high ceilings, relax upon French imperial chairs, chandeliers and stained glass windows.
