The Space

Situated in a quiet estate with very little "through traffic".

Guests have a "queen bed" room and their own separate bathroom in well appointed 2 storey home with a view across the park. Guests also have free access to the laundry and washing machine (no dryer).

We are 20 minutes drive from Brisbane airports (Domestic & International) as well as a 70 minute train ride to both airports.

We are 15 minutes from Brisbane city centre as well as 5 minutes drive from 2 shopping centres.

We are only an easy 10 minute walk to the train and bus which each take approximately 25 minutes to get to the city centre.

A 50 minute train trip (one change) gets you to the Gold Coast, Australia's premier beach and tourist resort.

Free WIFI.

House is a totally "smoke free" venue - no smoking anywhere - and is also drug free. No recreational drugs allowed.

Venue is also a "Bed & Breakfast" only - no other meals provided and cooking facilities are not available for use. Plenty of restaurants within 5 minutes drive.

There are numerous restaurants - about 30 - within a 10 minute drive.

I highly recommend a City Cat ride on the river into the city. 25 minutes and the most relaxing way to explore the city.

Guests are free to make tea or coffee in the kitchen.

Breakfast is served between 7 am and 8.30 am. I provide a cooked breakfast, juice, toast, tea and coffee (freshly ground).

Interaction with Guests

I enjoy chatting with my guests and getting to know them and offer advice to make their stay in Brisbane as satisfactory as possible

The Neighborhood

Quiet neighbourhood with friendly neighbours. Opportunity to sit in the park (across the street) and just relax.

Getting around

Bus and train within 7 minutes walk. City Cat into city within 7 minutes drive.

Parking on the street is quite safe.

I am happy to collect guests from the airport by arrangement (and a fee of $25). Alternatively the cab fare is $35 or the train (takes at least 70 minutes) will cost around $20 per person.

  • Geoff was very kind and accomodating during a very stressful time of life as I faced the funeral of my younger brother. I appreciate his flexibility and pleasant personality. I can recommend a stay with Geoff

  • We were extremely pleased to have met Geoff and stayed with him in May 2013. A most pleasant and interesting fellow who makes you feel totally at home. He runs a very nice home and is very helpful in providing directions and suggestions for the tourist things to do. We would love to return sometime.

  • Geoff was an excellent host. We were treated to coffee on arrival, and the breakfast was excellent. He was very helpful and knowledgeable during our stay in Brisbane, and was even kind enough to drive us to the airport at the end of our stay. We would definately recommend Geoff's place to future travellers.

  • Geoff (email hidden) and he has a beautiful home in a nice, quiet neighborhood. We had a bedroom and spacious bathroom (with a soaking tub) to ourselves. Geoff provided a tasty hot breakfast that he served to us on his covered patio. He was very helpful with recommendations on where to eat/what to do and with directions.

  • Geoff is a charming, friendly and interesting gentleman. We were very happy with his (email hidden) we recommend to anyone wanting a room within easy reach of the airport.

    August 2012
  • Geoff was a gracious and accommodating host. I had a wonderful room with my own spacious bedroom and Geoff really went the extra mile to make sure I felt comfortable during my stay. My flight out of Brisbane was unexpectedly delayed and he was kind enough to let me stay a few extra hours in comfort, as opposed to hanging around the airport, killing time. I highly, highly recommend him as a host - and a great conversationalist!

    August 2012
  • Geoff is an excellent host, makes guests feel very welcome. He shares a wealth of information, whether it be travel options and timetables, or ways to get the most out of your time in Brisbane or Australia.

    A short walk from the train station that runs to the heart of the city, his taste for the finer things in life (food, real tea, freshly ground coffee) make this a stay to remember.

    Highly recommended!
