House Rules

Entry into Queensland currently does no require quarantine for most states/countries, if you are double vaccinated.
I am, plus the booster shot. I have had two student boarders throughout the pandemic and we have been clear all the way.

I would require you to be at least double vaccinated, preferably with the booster shot.

No smoking/naked flames inside the house.
You are free to use the kitchen, but leave it cleaner that you found it !!

Light breakfast provided, other meals by arrangement.

Please, no open-element (bar) heaters due to fire risk. I'll run the air conditioner on heat when needed. The ducted air conditioner is run when required.

Your host smokes.

Smoking is not allowed.

    Our stay at seton's house was awesome. He is a really kind and nice man, full of humor and energy, who made us feel just like home. During our stay we met his family and other guest, making our stay even more enjoyable. He is very respectful and is very prone to help you with any doubt you may have about the house, Brisbane or Australia.

    Thank you Seton! :)

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?
