The location of the apartment is accessible and it is a short drive to the city. There is a nearby fish and chips store if you want to grab a quick lunch or dinner. The house is generally clean and we enjoyed our 3 nights there.
The host was friendly and she recommended a few places to visit and it was great! I'll definitely recommend anyone of you out there that this is a great place for your accommodation!
Ros was warm and welcoming. The room was comfortable and clean, like it appeared in the picture. We'd happily stay there again. Location was good, close to transport. Thanks Ros
Although I only stayed in Ros' house for one night, it was a nice experience. The house is large and well decorated, as well as the room. Ros and Paul are hospitable, and the big dog is docile.
Both Roz and Paul were very welcoming, they made me feel at home and I enjoyed the short stay. Thank you
Ros was accommodating & helpful.
Place was great, will recommend !

About the Host, Ros
I am 56 yrs old, very active, work full time, play softball and ride a motorbike. I live with my partner Paul and our 4yr old mastiff Lucy - she is a gentle giant and loves lots of pats and going for a walk. We have nearly finished renovating our house, just a few small things to finish, plus some general landscaping and tidying up. The bedrooms and bathrooms have been done so are modern and clean.
I am a public servant and Paul is a ceramic tiler.
We are early risers during the week, Paul to head to work and I take Lucy for a walk before heading to work. Weekends are usually spent working on the house, playing softball, socialising or riding our bikes with the Ulysses bike club.
We have travelled extensively within Australia and have had some overseas travel as well. We went on an amazing 3 week trip in the outback in May 2014 - so beautiful and so much to see. It included a trip to Uluru which is awesome!
During 2013 we spent 7 weeks travelling in Ireland, England, Wales and the Isle of Man. We had some lovely stays with other Airbnb hosts.
Our other travels include Vanuatu, Borneo (motorbike trip) USA and a bit of Canada.
We enjoy having a chat and few drinks and in general are pretty relaxed about life.
We look forward to welcoming you to our home and Brisbane and hope you enjoy your stay.
