Private room in family home, close to public transport, 15-20 mins by direct bus to City, easy Freeway access; yet, quiet and peaceful, you will hear plenty of birds including kookaburras, magpies and butcher birds. There are plenty of possums and bush turkeys about.
Close to parks, transport, schools, university. We can help with settling into Brisbane, or if you are having a holiday, advise you on the best ways to get to theme parks, beaches or the mountains.
The Gold Coast is only 45 minutes away by road, and with the new tunnels, the Sunshine coast is just over an hour away. Airport access via the new airport link is an amazing 20 minutes. ( Yes. we tested it!)
The guest bedroom has a queen bed with another guest bedroom across a small hallway. The two guest rooms share a bathroom with a shower, towels provided, yes there is a hair dryer too! (If you need more space, you can book the second bedroom as well.) It is in the front of the house, so you have privacy from the family if you like.
The house is a post-war home on two levels, so you will need to climb a few stairs to get inside, and out. We can provide you with the evening meal at a small charge with prior notice. You are free to cook your own food, just give us notice so that we can clear up and leave you to it! There is also a barbeque in the pergola area that you can use.
The living room has a TV and Blu-ray, that you are welcome to use. We can provide you with wireless internet for email and browsing. The living room is equipped with microwave, electric kettle and toaster for your use.

You can expect a moderately lively household with school-going teens, however there is no drinking, partying or loud music! This is a family home, so please remember that. We all stay out of the guest areas. You can be as friendly or reserved as you like.
We provide you with cereal, milk, tea and coffee. You can use the microwave to heat up your food, but if you need to cook, please use the kitchen with prior notice. It is a home, while we don't expect you to clean and scrub, we do expect you to keep it tidy and uncluttered. We don't allow guests and entertaining, but we can point you to lots of friendly cafes and eating places nearby in Holland Park and Mount Gravatt.
There is parking on the street.
We have wireless access, so you can use your laptop for email and browsing, however please do not download movies or music.
