The space
TROPICAL, SIMPLE AND AFFORDABLE!!

Hello and welcome to Brisbane!

My son, small dog and I have a large leafy Queenslander home in Cannon Hill with roomy private self contained accommodation for up to four people downstairs. Cannon Hill is 8kms from city centre. The space has 1 large bedroom with TV (double bed with new mattress topper) with own bathroom and separate toilet and separate secure entrance so you can come and go without any disruptions. Kitchenette/living room connected to outdoor undercover terrace. This room contains a sofa bed or fold out beds for extra guests. The bedroom can also accommodate the single beds if preferred.
Insect screens are installed on windows.

A very child friendly property, with a secure tall fence all around and a large trampoline available for use. Offstreet parking for one car is available if needed, (I will put my car out) but there is plenty of free parking in the street outside for car caravan, boat etc.


LOCATION
Cannon Hill is located approximately 8kms from the CBD or roughly 15 minutes to the city or 15 minutes out to Cleveland and other bayside areas. We are only 20 minutes by car / taxi from the airport. Very handy to access both the Sunshine and Gold Coasts on the Gateway Motorway.

There is a car rental office just around the corner!

TRANSPORT
Train: Cannon Hill Station on the Cleveland Line is 700 metres away.

Bus: Route 227 to and from City stops around the corner - 50 metres away- all timetables available.
Citycat Ferries: stop at Bulimba where there is a bus (Route 232) that comes to near our home. SEE TRANSPORT DETAILS.
Airport or train station pick up can be arranged (small charge) if really needed. All timetables available here.

Wireless internet available throughout house, and a small library for relaxing. Am working on a reference visitor information resource section but as a Brisbane person, I am able to provide good information regarding Brisbane's attractions. I have been a traveller so have a good understanding of visitor needs and will be delighted to share whatever I have in my head over a cup of coffee (or something more grown up) on the big back deck upstairs.

It is simple, clean and contemporary - a good space to relax after a long business day, conference, student stay or visit to Brisbane.There are leafy options for outdoor eating relaxing in the simple undercover area or in the bamboo garden.

FACILITIES
Modern kitchenette within the living area with:
Induction cooktop, microwave, electric frypan and skillet, toaster, electric kettle, flat bed griller (upon request) and refrigerator as well as tea and coffee making facilities, plates, cutlery for simple independent self catering.
Pedestal fan, IPOD dock, large flat screen TV, iron and ironing board, large work table/ desk, plenty of wardrobe space and tallboy for clothes.
BBQ is available for outdoor cooking day and night, if you want the real Queenslander experience.

Shared front load washing machine and drying area.
WIFI throughout.

Oil Heater available upon request for a fee of $4 per night. It is a safe oil type heater. See "Other things to Note" below.

SHOPPING AND EATING OUT
- 700m from two large supermarkets, deli, butcher, newsagent cafe.
- 700m from several takeaway food places - I have takeaway menus available.
Organic supermarket is about 600m away.

Nightly Rate Includes

- Accommodation for first person plus $15 for each additional guest. There is a sofa bed that can accommodate 1-2 people / children or one adult plus I have another single mattress on floor if preferred. Bedroom is quite a large room.
- Tea, coffee, milk, bread, butter and jams will be in fridge to get you started. After that I leave it up to you to purchase your own supplies.
- Fresh linen, towels, soaps, shampoo etc. Supplied linen will be changed after one week for longer stays or upon request.
- Access to wireless internet as long as use is not in the mega proportions for movie downloads and TV streaming.

CHECK IN / CHECK OUT

Our standard check in time is after 2pm and check out before 10am. We are happy to be flexible on this wherever it doesn't conflict with other bookings, please just communicate with us about what you need.

Minimum 3 nights night up to a maximum stay of four weeks.
If you do require a longer stay, please get in touch to discuss further as I am flexible.

NO SMOKING

This is definately a non smoking home. Please do not smoke anywhere in or around the house.

I am an Airbnb user for overseas trips so hopefully have covered the basics for a simple affordable alternative for your stay in Brisbane. Thank you for visiting our property page and I look forward to meeting you on your visit to Brisbane!

Guest access
You will have access to a self contained one bedroom unit including kitchen facilities. You also have use of outdoor area which I may pass through to service my garden or hang out the washing.
Washing machine is upstairs on rear deck for your use. My office on ground level is private and has no access to guests.

Other things to note
As of September 2018 there will be a new child care centre adjacent my property. There will be no activity in evenings or on weekends. Most of the play space is internal and away from my fence.

Upon request - an 11 bar oil heater is available for a nightly fee of $4 - to cover electricity etc. as I normally would not have a heater here in the sub-tropics. Some guests have made the suggestion to have a heater; but to keep the costs down for those who would not use a heater, I ask the fee. Thank you.

My son Toby and I live in Brisbane Australia. Toby is in second year university. I am a Landscape Architect and work from home with my own private consultancy but also have an outside job to keep cash flow coming in when things slow down. I have travelled far and wide in earlier years, have lived and worked in the Middle East for five years. Am now back home an establishing Chapter 10 of the life cycle in our Brisbane home. I have a keen desire to show Toby the hot spots of the world while he is still happy age to travel with me. I do this homestay to bring the world to us now that I am anchored for a while. Oh it also helps to pay for paint and other toys!! Come and meet us some day soon. Cheers Annette
