About the Homestay
We are a friendly family of two people with a large house which we share with our beloved cats. We also have a beautiful large salt water pool and a large deck at the front. The house has beautiful polished floors and is very large with views from the lounge room and the back yard. We have a quiet location, but very central to the city, buses, shops and bush walks as well as the TAFE and Universities. NOTE: off street parking is limited so this needs to be requested and I will advise by email if it is available when you book.
This house is very large, with two bathrooms, a separate toilet and vanity, and lots of living areas including a rumpus.
We live near the bus stop (5mins walk) and it is only 15 mins to Brisbane city or Southbank. We have several shopping centres and cafes nearby including a large movie complex and so many shops and eating places, a short walk or bus trip away. We are 40 mins drive from the Gold Coast with fantastic beaches and if you are travelling by car you can do many beautiful day trips from here and explore the city and our beautiful river.
We offer a standard cereal or toast breakfast and a peaceful stay. Netflix available to watch movies and series. A large TV for shared used and dishwasher in the kitchen. Please ASK if you need anything.
A library is 5 minutes by nearby bus or drive. Very handy to everything using a car or bus and there are cafes, restaurants and bars walking distance away as well as being close to Griffin University, Nathan campus for university and Tafe. About 5 mins drive away we have a large park at the top of a small summit, but we can see the whole of Brisbane north to the city (amazing and serene).
We love getting out and about and being social, but we also like staying and home, playing board games, charades, singing or shooting basketball hoops.
We are experienced at home stay and have had hundreds of guests from around the world, for over 8 years now! We may have other guests staying when you stay, but we like a quiet house, so usually you can not tell anyone is here. We look forward to quiet guests as well. :-)
We look forward to seeing you soon.

Please always ensure the house is locked when you leave, and the animals are not in your room when you go out. :-)
Please keep the keys safe as these need to replaced if you loose them.
WE love helping make your stay more fun, so please ask for help. We can give assistance to catch the bus and show you where things are, please do not be shy :-)
Please keep your room and things tidy.
Cuddles with the pets are free :-)
REFUNDS: stays are discounted accordingly to the time book, so refunds are usually not possible. Please only book for the length of stay that you need.
Please let us know as soon as possible if you would like to extend your stay, as we often get full so may not be able to assist without enough notice.
NO HEAVY DRINKING in the house please. Moderate drinking is perfectly fine (a wine or two), but as I have a daughter living here it is not a party house.
Please do not smoke in the house (outside is fine but please put the butts away).
YES use the pool if you want to. Please let me know if you need extra towels.
We want you to enjoy your stay so please let us know if you need anything and if you would like to join us in some activities.
Smoking is allowed outdoors only.
it was good to stay this family. Lovely cats & dogs. But they didn't have dinner together. So little bit lonely. That's all.
Very good host!
