Our unit is located in a leafy suburb, very close to the city heart. It is very quiet yet you can ride a bicycle to the city along the river without crossing a road. You can rent city bikes by the hour or per day just downstairs. The park is one block away. The Powerhouse - a cultural complex with theatre, exhibition gallery, concert hall, coffee shop overlooking the river 5 mn walk through the park. There is a market on Saturdays in front of the Powerhouse in the park. You can take a ferry on the river that takes you to Southbank, a big park in the city centre with a huge swimming pool that looks like a beach.
Activities for kids in Brisbane are endless. You will note that services to entertain the people are very developed in Australia and Brisbane is dubbed the most livable city in Australia. New Farm, where the apartment is located is the 'Italian' suburb of Brisbane. Just walk to the New Farm Deli and you won't miss any of the great Italian products you find in Europe. It is my preferred shop.
Ferry, buses, Uber.
Bus station one block away. Ferry station from the New Farm Park, just 3 mn walk across the park. You can rent a city bike at the bike rack downstairs. Taxi and Uber.
Other things to note
The unit is stocked with bedsheets, towels, washing powder, tea, coffee, spices etc..
You will find a bottle of milk, fresh butter and preserve in the fridge upon arrival.
As we might no be there between guests, please replace what you use to make the experience for the next guests as peasant as possible.
Please note that Parkleigh is a residential building and any noise must be kept down after 9.30pm. We would ask you to be mindful of the neighbours. The lady downstairs is particularly sensitive to noise and had been trouble in the past, calling the building manager or the police at any non-respect of the by-laws.
But as long as you respect our house rules (no party, no noise in the late evening, maximum occupancy is 4, no smoking in the bedrooms, no hanging clothes on the balcony, no inflatable toys in the swimming pool, and taking the rubbish to the right place (one spot for the recycle - one spot for the general waste) there will be no issue.
The parking spots on Parkleigh premises are reserved for visitors - you are considered residents - an prams and strolls cannot be left in the building hall.
We hope you understand and you will enjoy your stay.
