About this listing
Named after the glorious Jacaranda trees, inspiring the feature wall, this large room has 2 external windows that let in lots of light. Comfortable queen bed (with room for a single sofa bed if required) & adjoining internal courtyard with fridge, table & chair. Cafes in abundance a couple of streets away. An option to book the eat in kitchen as well to make this a 1 bed apartment. If this is what you want please book 'Groovy Apartment' and stipulate you want The Jacaranda Room as your bedroom.
On the ground floor of a Queenslander cottage settled in the Greek/Vietnamese Communities of Brisbane.
Famous for querky cafes and a wide range of excellent restaurants of every style. A favourite haven for students and hippies too. Walking distance from the river walkways and 2.5 kms from the city centre (less to the cultural centre)- yet in the centre of a quiet street that was, thankfully, untouched by recent floods
You will have access to a large, light and airy double room with private courtyard at the entrance (independent of the house) with fitted wardrobes, attached bathroom - all recently renovated. Kitchen laundry next door shared with adjoining apartment.
Access to landscaped, nightly lit tropical backyard complete with hammocks. Wireless internet, breakfast and parking can be arranged on request at no extra cost. We have bicycles too with helmets and locks - although the City Cycle scheme is amazing and only a street away in each direction. We will love to have you at my place. It will be a pleasure to host you :-)
Your bathroom is ensuite - only shared if you choose to take the room next door as a 2 bed apartment. A fridge, a small seating area in the entrance to the room and access to the outside eating area provides you will studio apartment living. If you want access to a well stocked kitchenette you can choose to book the groovy apartment and specify that you want the Jacaranda Room for sleeping. Use seating inside or in the garden for meal times at home.
Interaction with guests
Your room will be prepared by my lovely friend Kristyn. Your area of the house is totally independent. If you are staying for a week or more you may meet me or Kristyn who will change your bedding and help you keep the living areas clean. I am currently working in Sydney so am only there once a month for a long weekend to see family and tidy up the garden. Two of my children are now living independently nearby while they finish their university studies.
Other things to note
There may be people living above you and we have wooden floors for hygiene reasons and to minimise asthma in family members - so don't be alarmed if you are aware of people walking above you!!! You will have your own private double room and an adjoining courtyard. The bathroom is ensuite for BOTH rooms. If you prefer exclusive use of the bathroom and kitchen/ laundry then we suggest that you book the room as a one bed apartment rather than the studio. Just stipulate you want The Jacaranda Room as your bedroom rather than the Chilli Room.
While Children are welcome it must be noted that there is no fencing preventing access from the back of the house/ garden onto the street & internal stairs are ungated.
If parking on the property, only the demarcated parking spot can be used, when available, as the driveway is shared with my neighbour.
Parking on the street is only possible if the resident parking permit is diplayed otherwise fines apply which it is expected that you would honour.
There are 3 tenants living below who have their own independent access to their rooms. Please remove shoes and carry luggage to minimise noise and protect the polished wooden floors. There is no access to other parts of the house via the internal stairs.
Use of candles must be supervised carefully as this is a timber house.
Brisbane operates water restrictions please minimise water usage as fines also apply.
Smoking is not allowed inside the accommodation and if you smoke outside please ensure it is well away from the rooms and dispose of stubs and ash carefully, respecting other tenants.
