It's such a wonderful area with Restaurants, Cafe's & Deluxe Cinema only a few doors away. There is a huge park across the road for walking, running and other exercise.

Close to public transport for Brisbane CBD, Oxford St (more cafe's, restaurants and shops) and the motorway to the Gold & Sunshine Coasts. 10 min walk to the Citycat for CBD or Southbank. 5 min walk to the bus for CBD and a 15min drive into the city.
At the Hope Cats ECO lodge we love animals and have 2 resident cats (Autumn and Mittens) that may sleep in your room or cuddle up with you on the couch. You can follow them on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) at hopecatsfun.
We believe every dollar we spend creates the world we live in. So we run on solar power. We use organic, eco friendly cleaning products. We provide organic shampoo, conditioner and body wash. Our toilet paper comes from "Who gives a Crap". Linen is made from Organic cotton or comes from Lifeline. We recycle everything possible and have a compost in the back yard.
We offer free organic teas and coffee, filtered water and a microwave in the lounge to heat things in.
You can enjoy checking out the amazing Italian, Turkish, Indian, Greek, American and Thai restaurants or being served dinner while watching a movie in the deluxe cinema :-)
There are plenty of books to read, a table to sit at with computers, and a comfy couch to relax on.

This lovely room has a comfy double bed, bedside tables and a large cupboard for all your luggage with shelves and hanging space. There is a ceiling fan to keep you cool on the hotter nights and heaters for winter.

I have a bedroom at the back of the house and use the same shower as you. As I rent out two rooms there may also be someone staying in the other room. I have an office in the house with staff that come into work.

No smoking in or around the house for at least 100m. If you smoke at all we recommend you book somewhere else
For our overseas guests and southern Australian guests we like to mention that as we are in tropical Brisbane, Australia, there may be mosquitoes, fly's, small wall spiders, cockroaches and ants. This is normal in and around most Queensland houses. Especially older homes like mine (1940) where there are plenty of gaps for them to come in. We use cockroach bates but you may still see a few at night in summer as they can fly.
If you spill any food in your room it is always a good idea to clean it up straight away to prevent attracting creepy crawlies. There is a cloth in the bathroom you can use.
To look after things as if it was your own home.
I will give you keys and you are free to come and go as you wish
