About the Homestay
The house is on a big block of land in SEQ with our own in ground pool, mangos, white mulberries, oranges, dragonfruits, mint, etc. Off-street parking. Big swings and trampoline. It's recently renovated with a shared bathroom with a bath as well as shower and toilet with bidet shower, kitchen with fridge, oven, microwave, dishwasher, induction cookers, all plates, pans, pots, cutlery. I provide coffee, tea, salt, seasonings, napkins. In the lounge room there are 2 retro sofas and a coffee table. Very nice outdoor dining space overlooking the backyard with pool, BBQ and washing machine downstairs.
Wonderful tranquil place to have a romantic dinner in the backyard. Variety of books and games to choose from as well as some light gym equipment.
All rooms have modern quiet LED ceiling fans with remotes, timber beds, bamboo wardrobes, desks, towels, essentials (shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, tissues) and first aid kit.
Solar power and hot water system so I do ask that majority of cooking, showers to be before 8pm please. No shower or bath after 8.30pm as unfortunately it's waking the kids up as we are right downstairs.
I am the owner of this beautiful house, a healthcare professional in my early 30s. I live separately downstairs with my 2 kids.
Please note that our house is located in SEQ in the leafy suburbs (not concrete sterile jungle) and we have endemic species around
Please be mindful that due to tropical climate in SE QLD there are a lot of endemic species, including
spiders, cockroaches and snakes. NO REFUND OFFERED if you decide to terminate your stay early
based solely on presence of above or ANY issues caused by other guests – report ASAP.
While we do our best to ensure all areas are cleaned and treated appropriately, you may occasionally
face critters. Please do not leave a bad review based solely on that.

Strictly no smoking, partying or alcohol on premises.
We run on solar power and hot water so ideally would suit a morning person.
We take recycling seriously so various bins can be found on property (recycling waste, general waste, soft plastic and 10c containers).
As I live downstairs with kids no excess noise or shower/bath after 8.30 pm strictly.
We do expect mindful and reasonable usage of resources - water, electricity and food provided.
No smoking in or around premises – smoke detectors installed If you breech you will be evicted with no refund
Your host is a non-smoker.
Smoking is not allowed.
The house itself is good. The host is also very responsive and helpful. Would recommend to stay here if you have a vehicle, but not if you don’t have one. The house is at least a 30 minute walk from the nearest train station and bus routes into the city. The neighborhood itself is safe but the ones around it are not.
The place was nice, tidy and clean. But the landlord kick us out the first week of our stay. She claimed We were using the washing machine too much and carelessly. But We just used it 3 times on our whole stay. After I left she returned the money from the remaining time but took 50 dollars off for "extra" water expense.
If you are planning to stay for more than a week, I would recommend to consider looking for other alternatives.
Cristina was a great host and i really enjoyed her homestay
Excellent place, clean and very safe, privacy is complete and the details of the house are very beautiful
Thank you Cristina
I love here
I had a nice stay at Cristina's house. The room is beautifully furnished and the common areas are very well equipped also.
The pool is of course a +.
A bit away from any public transport
Had a great stay, nice and clean place and a lovely host!
Cristina is a model hostess, always helpful, responsible, friendly and cordial. She was helpful even after I left her house, of her own free will and without me even asking her. She is fantastic! Very chill house, simple but complete with everything and with a fantastic pool.
Quick response, very helpful and accommodating. The place was peaceful and quiet, just what I need after every long day of work outside Brisbane. Highly recommended
