Insect screens are now installed on main rooms.
A very child friendly property, with a secure tall fence all around and a large trampoline available for use. Offstreet parking for one car is available if needed, (I will put my car out) but there is plenty of free parking in the street outside for car caravan, boat etc.

Wireless internet available throughout house, and a small library for relaxing. Am working on a reference visitor information resource section but as a Brisbane person, I am able to provide good information regarding Brisbane's attractions. I have been a traveller so have a good understanding of visitor needs and will be delighted to share whatever I have in my head over a cup of coffee (or something more grown up) on the big back deck upstairs.
It is simple, clean and contemporary - a good space to relax after a long business day, conference, student stay or visit to Brisbane.There are leafy options for outdoor eating relaxing in the simple undercover area or in the bamboo garden.

Induction cooktop, microwave, electric frypan and skillet, toaster, electric kettle, flat bed griller and refrigerator as well as tea and coffee making facilities, plates, cutlery for simple independent self catering.

An absolutely wonderful home away from home! Our family loved this place and its hostess <3
A really pleasant haven to relax with the benefit of being close to great transport links and shops. Annette is a very gracious and helpful hostess and it felt like we were staying in our our home we felt so at ease.Thanks for a great stay
We had a super stay with Annette unfortunately Toby and Dusty were away! We love the city of Brisbane spending 8 & 9 hours a day there.
Bamboo Gardens is a special place you think you are away on the wilderness then you hear a plane flying!! The apartment has everything, great comfy bed, lots of info and great seating outside to chill in the eve!! Our host even gave us a lift to the Sunshine Coast. We would def stay there again!
Our stay at Annette's house was lovely,just what we needed after 5 weeks travelling around Australia! The apartment was well appointed and very comfortable. Very clean and had a relaxing atmosphere.
Annette was wonderful, a great host. She kindly picked us up and dropped us off from the airport, and also accomodated us in the afternoon after we had checked out as our flight wasnt until late evening. We were able to realx in her home on the balcony and were able to use her bathroom to freshen up. We would definatley stay here again.
Lovely place to stay. One of my party was a smoker and it is very much a no smoking property - both inside and outside - so that was blunder on my part, but everything else was gold.
Annette is a lovely host. We had a warm welcome and everything was made for us to be comfortable. She had milk and butter in the fridge and some other staples which made meal preparation easy when we used kitchen.The flat is very clean, cosy and spacious. And the adjoining terrace full of potted tropical plants makes the place very unique and soothing. Annette was kind enough to let us stay in the terrace after check-out. So we were able to relax a bit longer before taking our flight, wich was truly appreciated! I definitively recommend the Bamboo garden to anybody staying in (website hidden) :
Annette est l'hôte parfaite. Nous avons été trés bien acceuillis et tout a été fait pour qu'on se sente comme chez nous. Elle avait mis du lait et du beurre au frigo ainsi que d'autres ingrédients de base, ce qui était bien pratique pour cuisiner nos repas. L'appartement est trés propre, comfortable et spacieux. Et la terrasse pleine de plantes exotiques en pot rend vraiment l'endroit unique et apaisant. Annette a été assez gentille pour nous laisser profiter de la terrasse apres avoir vidé l'appartement. On a donc pu se relaxer un peu plus longtemps avant de reprendre l'avion, ce qu'on a bien apprécié ! Si vous projetez de séjourner à Brisbane, allez-y les yeux fermés !
We were supremely happy with our stay with Annette and enjoyed meeting her and spending restful time in the space. It was very private and comfortable and Annette had kindly left some start up groceries in the fridge eg milk, bread, yogurt, butter jam.
It ended up not just being a place to sleep but somewhere we made time to return to in the afternoon and enjoy the ambiance and calmness of the verandah and the garden. We enjoyed some time getting to know Annette and thank her for her generosity in excess of expectations.
Bamboo Gardens was the perfect place for our short getaway to brisbane. Annette was very friendly and made our trip very enjoyable! and not to forget dusty! would definitely be back again! highly recommended
Very enjoyable stay. Annette, Toby and the very friendly Dusty were welcoming and helpful hosts.
Annette and Toby were wonderful hosts and we had a brilliant time at Bamboo Gardens. It was easy to get to Brisbane and was the perfect peaceful retreat after a day's sightseeing in the city. Annette was very helpful when it came to working out what we could do and how to get around which was great! I can wholeheartedly recommend staying at Bamboo Gardens!
