    Davidia's place was very comfortable, clean, spacious and quiet. The bedroom is located in a separate "mezzanine" of the three-storey flat. Very private. Close to the shops, bus stop and train station, clubs and cafes, and only at walking distance to New Farm on the Brisbane river. More than all, I much appreciated Davidia's nice and friendly way.

    Davidia's place is a comfortable and peaceful eyrie high above Brisbane's bustling Fortitude Valley. Transport, shops, eating places literally at your doorstep. A great place to stay.

    We should at the beginning only stay 3 weeks but we felt so confortable at Davidia's home that we've stayed 4 months instead :).
    Davidia is a lovely, helpful and easy going person. The flat is like in fotos: immaculate, modern and with everything you would need to feel like at home.
    It is perfectly situated to go to the CBD (even by walk in 15min) and in one of the more attractive street of Brisbane :restaurants, pubs, shop, hairshop...
    You will have as described your own floor with bedroom, bathroom and small lounge but it's always nice to stay with Davidia if you want in the common lounge.
    I was the first month alone in Australia and Davidia helps to feel me like at home.
    We will recommand the unit for 100%, maybe more!
    Thanks again Davidia,
    Thomas & Marie

    I had a long stay with Davidia and it was excellent. The room is very nice and so is the bathroom.
    The location where the homestay is situated is in the upcoming neighborhood with lots of bar and clubs. As a young person I liked being in the middle of where stuff is happening and it is also very close to the CBD (ten/fifteen minute walk) and everything is very reachable. It's also very close to the train station where you can catch a train to about anywhere around Brisbane, to Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast.
    Davidia is very nice and always helpful as a host. As a young international student I felt at home with her very quickly because she is very nice and friendly and helped me getting around when I just arrived. When I had any questions or problems I could always come to her. This homestay made my Australia expierence just perfect. Thank you so much Davidia!

    The accommodation was excellent. You have your own floor with a bedroom, bathroom and a living room and you can use the kitchen whenever you want. The place is perfect as your are very close to the city. The Brisbane River is 7 min. far and you can walk to beautiful places near the river. Davidia is a lovely host. She has an open mind and she is very friendly. During my time in Brisbane she gave me helpful tips such as restaurants, culture exhibitions etc.
    Thanks again Davidia. I'll always remember my pleasant time in Brisbane.

    If you like it to have a privat place in a homestay and it doesn`t matter for you to cook for yourself, Davidias appartement is the right place for you. You have your own floor with a bathroom in the appartement and you can need the kitchen whenever you like. It`s Close to the City(15 min. walk) and there is a bus stop in front of the appartement. The next train station is 5 min. walk away. The appartement is in the Fortitude Valley, which has a lot of bars and Clubs. But inside it`s not too noisy. Davidia works a lot, so she isn`t often at home. But she is a very very friendly and helpful person. If you have any problems or questions you can ask her every time. For me it was a pleasure to stay there and I will never forget this time. Thank you Davidia

    This stay has been awesome in every way.
    First of all Davidia is the best host one can ever dream of. She has always been lovely and helpful. She is very busy working - you probably won't get to see her a lot during the week. But the time spent together was fantastic. She is a very open minded and cultured person who it's a pleasure to talk with.
    And as for the home in itself, to top it all : I had the whole 2nd level (one bedroom, one bathroom and one living room) of her modern and stylish penthouse..
