  • Description


    We are a family of 4 living in a spacious home with a pool and games room.

    We are in a beautiful, convenient location only minutes away from coffee shops, restaurants, the beach, city, airport and all forms of transport in Brisbane.

    The lower level of our house has two large rooms with queen beds. There is also a private bathroom, and kitchenette for your own use. The downstairs area also has access to the games room, with pool (snooker) table, ping pong, and the large pool.

    We eat a wide variety of healthy Australian food and are happy to share the cooking and try new foods. There is also your own kitchen, so if you’d prefer to make your own meals that is okay too. We are away from the home three nights a fortnight, so on those occasions you will cook for yourself.

    I am a single mum of three very loving and busy school aged children. I work full time in the beautiful South Bank parklands as a graphic designer. We are out of the house all day and most weekends, so you will have plenty of space to yourself too.

  • Accommodation


    We have a beautiful large home in a tree lined, friendly suburb with two fully self contained bedrooms with queen beds in each room downstairs, with there own bathroom and kitchenette with cooking facilities, fridge and dishwasher. There is also the shared laundry.
    I am in the process of renovating the downstairs area, but it just needs finishing touches like painting and tidying up. Large pool, garden, and games room with bar and big tv lounge. The rooms are air conditioned. We have fast wifi, Netflix, Stan, etc. There is an outdoor bbq area.
    We also have bicycles that you can use to ride to the close bike pathways into town or out to the Nudgee Beach wetlands.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Beautiful Brisbane is a lovely bustling city with so much to do, and plenty of places to visit within close proximity - the Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast and world famous scenic rim.
    Very easy access to all forms of transport, the city, river and the airport. I work across the parklands, so busy with designing events and will always be at hand to give recommendations of things to do (especially for free) in our beautiful city. I have hosted exchange students for many years and love the cultural exchange for both the students and my children.
    We often go out bush holidays, and if you are staying with us you will be welcome to join us camping off the grid.
