About the Homestay
I live in beautiful tree filled Norman Park. It’s a quiet neighbourhood but close to the city with easy access, a 10 minute bus trip if not in peak traffic. You can catch the citycat (boat) up the river to the city, Southbank and UQ. We have a very friendly dog, Alfie. You would have complete use of our lower floor area which has 2 bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, lounge, laundry and separate access. I have been hosting overseas students and travellers for a few years. We are very close to public transport and 3 kms from the city and very close to Shafston College. We are also close to QUT Gardens Point, the City, Southbank TAFE, a gym, Thai restaurant and public transport. There are 3 coffee shops handy. There is a separate kitchen for your use, cooking equipment, fridge, microwave, hotplates etc. Wifi Internet and electricity etc is included. I am respectful of your privacy but always available to answer questions or help if I can.
PLEASE NOTE I DON'T PROVIDE THE LIGHT BREAKFAST. THE HOMESTAY WEBSITE ADDS THIS AUTOMATICALLY.
We are close to river and major roads but it is a quiet, leafy area.

This guest awarded the host 4 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
the house is lovely, sue is very friendly and kind I highly recommend it
Well, what can I say? I had a superb trip, Sue was fantastic, Brisbane was welcoming, the weather was out of this world - I wanted to stay for ever.
(I'm sorry Sue. I would have awarded more stars but it only goes up to 5.)
Sue is a friendly, down to earth and welcoming host. The house and gardens are lovely and close to public transport. I enjoyed the garden and the outdoor deck immensely. The room was so comfy and down stairs from the main house so you had a lot of privacy. This was defiantly a wonderful experience and I recommend this "Home" to future traveller's. Thanks again Sue for a wonderful stay.
Beautiful home and environment so close to transport and to everywhere in the city. The room is spacious, well lit and well appointed and a very comfortable bed. The only drawback tv wasn't working and the bathroom and toilet do not have a lock.
Close to the city and public transport. Comfortable bed and good facilities. Unfortunately the scond day of our 6 night stay the house in front of the property was being demolished with crow bars, chainsaws, and excavator with 6:30am starts with a lot of noise and dust. This went on for 3-4 days. Had I known that this was going to happen I would have chosen to stay elswhere. No light breakfast provided in description and TV is not connected to anything. Other than that we enjoyed our stay.
Cool, convenient & comfortable.
