About This Listing
A bright and contemporary one bedroom, self contained apartment next to river---walk to Brisbane's dining and cultural precincts at Southbank, and West End's cafe strip. Walking distance to the CBD.
Private and comfortable with your own access
As part of our Queenslander home we have recently built a modern, bright and airy, self contained apartment below. It features separate access, french doors opening onto a large balcony, overlooking the pool, self contained kitchen, lounge, double bedroom and large bathroom with washing machine and dryer.
Our guests have their own access and privacy from the family. They have their own balcony, use of the family pool, and free wi-fi. Our living and working space is above the unit and this area and the shed is off limits.
Interaction with Guests
We both work from our home office and are more than happy to help if you need any advice or information. However, we respect your privacy and won't be invading your space!
We have a miniature schnauzer who is extremely friendly, if you need a "dog fix" while you're here.
We rarely use the pool so you could almost consider it as yours.
It's a perfect position. One street away from the Brisbane river, in a quiet location but just a short walk to the strip of cafes, restaurants and nightclubs in West End.
The unit is a short walk away from the bus stop and about a 40 min walk into the CBD central. The Brisbane River winds its way through the centre of the City. A short 10 minute walk takes you to the City Cat West End ferry terminal. Catching a City Cat is a wonderful way to see the sights along the Brisbane River.
You are a 40 minutes drive from the Gold Coast and 1.5 hrs drive from Noosa and Eumundi (Sunshine Coast)
Paddington is 10mins drive away
From the Airport take the air-train to South Bank Station and we can pick you up from there.
We don't have off street parking, but there is plenty of free street parking
Smoking is allowed on the balcony but NOT inside.
Please refrain from loud music or noise after 11pm. No jumping off the balcony into the pool. No glass in and around pool.
Annie and ross are amazing hostes, the place is great and clean, they had provided the kitchen with evrything for breakfast and they gave us a lot of advice when we needed during our stay. It just 10 min to the city center by boat and 10 min walk to shops and nice bar in west end. Go you won't regret!!!
I stayed here for almost 3 weeks and it was very much a home from home. Annie and Ross were the prefect hosts - always responsive to any issues/queries and were kind enough to give me a lift on a few occasions.
The place is spacious and facilities are very good, with an exceptionally comfortable bed. Whilst the weather was good, it wasn't warm enough to use the pool, which was a shame and the deck area is shaded most of time, which is great for summer, but less so at other times.
The area is pleasant and quiet, but also 10 mins from the City Cat and the heart of West End
If I return to Brisbane, I'd be very happy to stay again
My wife and I had a fantastic stay at Annie's. The place has absolutely everything you need - its like having your own 'home' whilst on holiday. Parking was easy but you can easily walk to everything you need, the ferry is also close by. West End is a great place to be, so close to everything. Annie was extremely welcoming and helpful when asked and gave us our privacy otherwise, a brilliant host and an awesome place.
The apartment was exactly as described and Annie and Ross went out of their way to make us feel welcome, including providing breakfast goodies in the fridge for our arrival! They were also very helpful with offering lifts and storage space. I/we really enjoyed our time at the apartment and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Thank you for your hospitality!
We had an amazing time at Annie and Ross' place! They were incredibly hospitable, the place is beautiful and the neighbourhood has everything that you'll need. Definitely the place to stay if you're looking to stay in the Highgate Hill/West End area.
Annie and Ross were very welcoming and made our stay enjoyable and comfortable. It is a lovely apartment, beautifully furnished and clean. Annie went out of her way to accommodate us when bad weather made transport difficult and provided us with bread, milk and some basic supplies on arrival. I can very easily recommend this as a place to stay and would stay here again when in Brisbane.
Annie greeted us and showed us the place upon arrival. She was wonderfully helpful. The apartment is attractive and comfortable with interesting art on the walls. She gave us tips on where to eat and the food was good. Most importantly, we came from the US to visit our son. His new apartment wasn't ready but Annie and Her husband brought a mattress in so he could stay. Wow. Thank you!
About the Host, Annie
I'm married with 2 adult daughters. Our family is originally from South Australia but we moved to Brisbane 9 years ago. My husband and I love traveling! We backpacked for a year in 1988 and spent quite a bit of time in India, Nepal and Africa (we got married in Kenya!). We've also had some short trips to Vietnam, Hong Kong and Thailand. There's so much to see in the world, so we haven't finished yet! As a couple we're very easy going and friendly. We both work from home above the unit, so we'll usually be around if you need any help. However, as you are completely self contained with your own entry door, we won't be invading your space! We love ....going to the movies, eating at our favourite, local Asian restaurants, and walking our dog along the river! Brisbane is a wonderful city! I'm sure you'll enjoy it as much as we do!
