About the Homestay
As my family now live overseas I'm happy to share my lovely airy "tree house" on the river in Indooroopilly, just a 5 minute walk from Indooroopilly Shopping Centre, bus and train Station. The city is just a 10 minute journey away. I am a short walk away from the gym and swimming pool and located right opposite the Indooroopilly Canoe Club. 5 minutes to movie theatres, cafes, great restaurants, two local pubs and our gorgeous local Thai Style spa. Safe outside parking.
The house is unique as it sits high on "poles" surrounded by massive blue gums overlooking our own creek and the Brisbane River. When people walk in the just say "Wow!" I have five wonderful neighbours and our houses surround a pretty European style courtyard.
The house is on two levels with big decks on both levels, complete with hammock and BBQ. Upstairs has an airy living area with 3 comfy sofas, open plan kitchen, dining area and powder room. The lower level has 3 bedrooms, another sitting room, laundry and 2 bathrooms. TV's on both levels. The house is always cool in summer because of river breezes but has AC/heat in living areas and fans on remotes in all rooms. Wifi of course. The downstairs sitting room (with blue sofas) is for the unlimited use of guests who prefer to be private. I am an avid reader so plenty of books to choose from.
You would be sharing with a semi-retired single woman and an enchanting Siamese cat called Isabella. If you want company....she's your girl!
I love to read, watch TV, go to the movies, theatre, write, cook, travel, keep in facebook contact with family and friends. Have a life-long interest in the environment and saving our native species.
Safe outside parking available.
