Wake up to peaceful surroundings in Resort Style Complex in a lovely furnished Queen bedroom with private balcony overlooking courtyard before taking the 5 mins walk to train and bus and capturing the sites of Brisbane, be it holiday or business.
Please note: Nightly price is for one/two people occupying the Queen room only. Guests have the privacy of their own luxurious bathroom. Everyone welcome, whether a single or family we would love you to visit with us.
If two people wish to use two separate bedrooms, the Queen bedroom night price is shown, plus you will be required to pay an additional $30 per night for use of the single bedroom. Please note that our second bedroom has one single bed, at a squeeze there is also a trundle bed that is available in the single room. Upon arrival I require a deposit of $100 for each key issued to be refunded on return. As we live in a secured community these keys are issued through the Complex Management at the above cost, therefore if they go missing they must be replaced.
Our home is in "Cloudland" (go to our website and check out the complex, don't forget (website hidden).au), the highest point in Bowen Hills with fantastic views of the city be it day or night. We are located close to many areas of interest, be it business, medical (walk to Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital), horse racing, dining. Within Cloudland we have 2 pools, tennis court and viewing deck. Parking for 5 to 7 days subject to approval.
Guests arriving from Brisbane Airport have the choice of either a taxi which would cost approx $40 off peak or there is the Translink City Train, cost of this service being $16 each adult one way however children aged 5 - 14 years have free fare when travelling with a paying adult. A service I also provide is to transfer guests to my home at a charge of $25 each way although I have a small car so luggage would have to be minimal, this we could discuss upon application.
Guests that we like to accommodate would be travellers or persons looking for short term stays from 3 days up to 28 days, an extension may be possible if the rooms are vacant. As we are located so close to the Royal Women's & Brisbane Hospital we also welcome families of inpatients of the hospital. We are a retired couple available to be of assistance if required in the form of local knowledge, travel, and any other enquiries you may have. To get you started, 3 GoCards (travel cards) are available for your use with an opening balance of $10 on each, we just require you to recredit this amount when you depart ready for use of future guests.

Geoff's house was really nice, clean, good location, own bathroom. Geoff was nice and easy going. I will sure recommend geoff as a host.
My husband and I had a lovely time staying at Geoffs house. The place was very nice, comfortable and clean. Geoff was also helpful in every way. The place was easy for us to get into the city. The station was less than 10 mins walk and we only had to pass 1 station to get to the city. I would definitely recommend this place if you are visiting Brisbane and we might even come again if we are planning for a 2nd trip.
Geoff was a very helpful and friendly host and made us feel welcome. The location is very handy to the Valley and public transport is easy to find if you want to go further afield. Geoff's place is very comfortable and quiet. I would recommend Geoff's place to friends and I would stay there again myself. Thanks Geoff!!
The Apartment was very nice and clean. It met all our expectations and Geoff was very pleasant and helpful. The Balcony had a lovely view over the City Skyline.
Geoff was extremely kind and generous as a host. The private room and bathroom were very nice and comfortable.
We spent three days in Geoff home is very nice. Good location & quite at night sure you can sleep well. House is very clean.
I had a lovely stay at Cloudland. The complex itself has wonderful views over the city and is in a handy location being a very short walk to the train station, also an Aldi, and also easy and pleasant walks to the river and nearby parks.
Everything about my space was huge, the bedroom and bed, walk in robe and ensuite bathroom, even a large TV in the room. It was very impressive and gave me a good private space with plenty of room to unpack and settle into for the week. The bedroom’s balcony and views were also lovely, especially at sunset and of an evening for the city lights.
I also never had any trouble getting a carpark immediately opposite the unit.
Between work and each of us being out and about I wasn’t home to spend a great deal of time with Geoff, though he was very friendly and helpful and easy to have a chat to. He even insisted on helping me carry in my luggage on arrival and was flexible with a late check out time which I appreciated.
I wished I had a longer booking here, definitely recommend this listing.
Hi there, I retired 3 years ago and have not looked back. Thoroughly enjoy the travel and lifestyle that comes with being retired. Taken up hobbies which I just never had time for before. The best part is just simply being free to do what I like and when I like. My partner and I have just joined Airbnb and now look forward to meeting and becoming friends with lots of people being either overseas visitors, Aussies or business people or home is very welcoming to all. Happy holiday in Cloudland.
