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

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.
No TV or loud music after 10.00 pm.
No smoking on the property.
Only two guests in room.
No shoes in the house - please leave just inside front door.
No cooking or food/drink in bedroom.
Car parking is OK in the street and quite safe.

Another great visit with Geoff. We really enjoy his company and its such a great location for us.
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
Regards with much appreciation
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 was a great host 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.
