Just right for a couple or single who are looking for a comfortable, homey atmosphere with a leafy green outlook yet walking distance to transport and with several great restaurants/cafes nearby for that all important coffee or meal. Cook or order in to enjoy the privacy of your own back deck.
This apartment is part of a 3 story private home in a generally quiet area close to the city. There is very little traffic noise due to the location however we are subject to airplane noise at times as we are in one of 3 paths to the airport. This means at times air traffic will be present but only at rostered times. A large 2 story apartment is also available for rental by guests. The bottom level is currently occupied by us (your hosts). Each area has its own entry, the common area being the front garden and a shared laundry area.
The apartment consists of a bright and airy space with its own private entry, a full size bathroom including separate shower, bath and a small but well equipped separate kitchen dining room overlooking the front garden. The separate bedroom has a wardrobe, a 2 seat sofa, a television and opens onto a good sized private deck with a pleasant, leafy green outlook. A perfect place to chill out with a glass of wine or a quiet cuppa.
To reach the apartment you must go through the garden gate and down the boardwalk. Your private entrance is through the double glass doors on the left.This is a self contained apartment and is separate from other spaces. Although the front garden is a shared space, the back deck is your own private space. The laundry area is shared and can be accessed on the 3rd level if required. Just text us to check if the laundry is free. The line on this level can be used but there is also a drying rack on your back deck.
We will make every attempt to meet and welcome you on arrival to give you the keys and offer any information or assistance that may help you enjoy your stay. We will also leave an information booklet which will help with local takeaways and cafes as well as some great places to visit.
After our initial meeting we prefer to respect your privacy to enjoy your stay however, we will be only too happy to help out or answer any questions you might require. Just give us a call.
Access is down a boardwalk through a garden so there are a few easy steps to negotiate, This is well lit at night with sensor lights that turn on and off automatically.
We have a small friendly dog called Leo, but he is kept in our downstairs area by a gate at the side of the house.
Clean fresh sheets and towels are provided but for longer stays extra linen is provided on request. Other immediate necessities eg. soap, shampoo ARE PROVIDED AT THE START OF YOUR STAY as well as starter pack in the kitchen with tea coffee, milk, sugar, and breakfast cereal. Any other food left in the kitchen is there for your use eg salt and pepper, oil, spices etc, If staying longer, you will need to purchase any requirements after the initial supply has been used.
A cleaning fee has been applied, but this would have to be increased for a longer stay (negotiated with host) if heavier cleaning is required after an extended stay please expect to pay double the normal very limited $35.00 allowed for short stays ie less than 2 weeks.
- Quiet after 10:30 especially week nights
- Please empty rubbish and leave the apartment tidy before leaving
- Please clean the BBQ after use
Hi, My name is Wendy and I am a retired school teacher although i still do some part time work. My husband Don is currently still working. We love our home in the inner city area of south east Brisbane but have decided to move into a smaller living space. We are very happy to invite our lucky guests to enjoy our fabulous home.
Don and I are keen travellers and have been to many exotic places, the last one being Africa.
We are a friendly couple who will put you at ease but understand everyones need for privacy and relaxation time
We have a friendly little dog called Leo, who loves to be helpful, so we will keep him in our own private gated space as we live in a self contained unit on the third level.
Don loves any kind of sport and although he was once a keen player, he is now happy to support his favourite teams.
We both love going to the beach where we enjoy swimming, boating, fishing or simply walking on the beach. Our favourite place is Bribie Island, about an hours drive away, a less occupied laid back, family friendly place.
Hmm what else can i tell you? I love going to coffee with my friends, playing
with my grandchildren, love all sorts of arts and craft and we are both music lovers as well as sci fi fans. A bit of a mixture like most people I guess!
