About this listing
The featured room is a spacious ensuite, furnished with a queen bed and large wardrobe. Only 4km from city central and a short walk from the river, the apartment is ideally located in a leafy area of Toowong, offering city views from the balcony.
This fully furnished master bedroom is located on the 2nd floor of the building in a two bedroom apartment occupied by myself and my partner . The apartment offers an open plan kitchen and dining room, spacious living room and an expansive balcony which surrounds the living space. The fridge, microwave, oven and washing machine are open for guests to use. All cooking appliances are included. The building has a secure car park with visitor spaces available.
Guests are welcome to full use of the master bedroom with ensuite and the common areas, appliances, and parking facilities. We provide breakfast essentials during the week and offer a pancake breakfast to our guests on weekends. Otherwise, guests are welcome to help themselves to groceries on the lower shelf of the kitchen cupboard, and space will be made available for you in the cupboard and the fridge to store your own groceries.
The apartment has a two street entry as well as a garage.
Interaction with guests
We are a multi-lingual household. Raphael is from Paris and speaks French and English, I am Australian but due to family heritage, I speak German and Russian, and of course English! We love to meet people from all backgrounds.
We will be working through the week, but generally one of us will be home in the evenings. On the weekends, we like to go to the West End markets to get fresh fruit and vegetables, or to Mt Cootha which is only a 15 min drive away for a hike. We are most happy to take our guests along to show them some of what Brisbane has to offer.
The apartment is ideally located in a quiet, leafy part of Toowong. Only 4 km away from city central and 3 km away from UQ, we are 5 min walk away from trains, buses and ferries, and a 5 min walk away from Toowong shops and the vibrant cafe scene. If you are interested in nature treks, Mt Cootha and the Botanical gardens are a 15 min drive away.
It is very easy to get to and from Toowong by public transport, such as buses, trains and ferries. However, there is also the option of using CityCycle, which is a council operated bike share scheme. There is an excellent bikepath that runs along the riverside, which will take you to the city or Southbank in under 20 mins.
Other things to note
Whilst the apartment itself is non-smoking, smoking is permitted on the balcony.
Please respect our house, clean up after yourself and leave things as they were.
