Gorgeous garden studio in beautiful Brunswick Heads offers a great alternative to motels - feel like you're a local. A 10min stroll to shops, cafes, pub and bowling club, river and surf beach. Queen bed and futon King single fold out couch, wifi, ensuite, kitchenette, own BBQ & outside table & chairs. Very quiet street but close to festivals & festival transport.
You have your own private, self-contained space via a back lane entry.
A recent renovation with high pitched roof allows plenty of light and breezes.
Handy kitchenette, Nespresso, microwave, BBQ and portable electric cook top. A very comfortable queen bed with 'worlds softest sheets' plus futon style King single fold out couch. There is a small flat screen TV and DVDs in the coffee table, a dining table and two chairs plus an outside table and chairs.
This space is really ideal for a couple and perhaps one other person, but be reminded that the '2nd' bed is only a fold out futon couch.
Brunswick Heads is known for its wildlife so you'll have a chorus of birds in the morning and no doubt some bush turkeys & water dragons roaming around.
It has become necessary for us to point out, especially to less experienced Air BnB-ers, that this is not a motel and that there are plenty of fantastic motels in Brunswick Heads if that's what you're after. We don't offer room service or make breakfast (though we provide cereal). We have designed this space to accommodate the self-sufficient traveller (we'll leave you completely in privacy unless requested otherwise) who wants to get a taste of what it's like to be a local in one of Australia's most idyllic seaside towns. We're happy to help loan a bike/kayak/fishing rod. Just ask.
The door will be unlocked with keys inside on the table, usually from 2pm.
You have your own BBQ and outdoor area with table, use of hammock, clothes line & outdoor bath & hot shower.
Need a bike? Bruns is super flat and a joy to bike around.
There are two bike rental places only a quick stroll from the studio:
Brunswick Heads Bicycles
2/1 Park St
Hours: Open 8am–5pm
And Clems Cargo rent Vintage bikes:
38 Tweed St.
We have a one person canoe for use also, you can launch it up the road in the Terrace Caravan park.
Interaction with guests
We live in the house on the property with our nine-year-old daughter and black cat called Eva and sometimes work in the office adjacent the studio. We operate on the theory that you will prefer privacy and will leave you alone unless requested otherwise. We want you to feel like you're a local living in Bruns and can help out with local advice, even fishing rods and boogie boards. Please, if you're after a more traditional motel style stay, there are plenty of other options in Bruns.
Other things to note
If there is a booking either side of your dates, then check out at 10am. Feel free to check with us during your stay.
Before making your booking, please compare the prices with other accommodation in the area at the time eg. other studios & motels in Bruns. We follow the Airbnb recommended pricing structure with slight increases for peak periods. Please be aware of the $18 cleaning & linen washing fee per stay and the airbnb fees before confirming your booking - we don't like our guests to be surprised about the final payout figure.
NB We charge an extra $15 cleaning fee for pets.
Every now & then we have guests noticing the smallest things eg. A dripping tap, the clock didn't work, we couldn't find the laneway, there was no one there to meet us. These are complaints we hope you don't have, but please let us know straight away so we can find a solution to the problem straight away. We want you to have the most enjoyable stay possible.
As this is a quiet area, we ask that guests are quiet after 10pm, and smoke only outside. Message us about bringing your pets. We like pets but will ask for an extra $20 for cleaning & we'd like to discuss the fencing arrangements with you first.
My husband Marty and I both live and work in gorgeous Brunswick Heads. We also love to travel and have stayed in numerous Air BnB accommodation. We understand the importance of privacy, quality and honesty and welcome like minded guests to come and enjoy our beautiful river/beach side town.
