We have been hosting on FlipKey/Trip Advisor for some time and we would now like to involve our guests with the donations we regularly give to charities in what we call 'Your gift ... their difference.'. We will donate 10% of our nightly FlipKey fees to an Australian charity of your choice (online and during the period of your stay), forwarding to you a copy of the charity's receipt. We did not raise our fees to enable us to do this. Our fees are exactly the same as they were 4 years ago. Our apartment is totally self-contained, with many things guests need, including: - unlimited high-speed Internet - balcony with chairs to enjoy view of the bay - free in-building, secure parking - Apple TV (bring your Netflix/Stan password!) - use of Myki public transport cards pre-loaded with credit...We have been hosting on FlipKey/Trip Advisor for some time and we would now like to involve our guests with the donations we regularly give to charities in what we call 'Your gift ... their difference.'.
