When you arrive, you will receive your own Map, I will show you where things are and how to get anywhere you want to go. It's a good time for you to ask any questions you may have and plan what you would like to do in Brisbane.

During your stay if you would like to contact us for any reason, it is as simple as asking in person or picking up the intercom or sending a text/or email (which we get straight away) so please let us know.

I hope you are excited about your upcoming trip to Brisbane - as it is certainly the place to be, there is always something happening and the location here is certainly amongst the action. There are so many things to see and do locally.

We are in a beautiful tree lined area of gorgeous houses in a beautiful pocket ('the prestigious' Teneriffe Hill) although so close to everything, it is surprisingly tranquil and quiet.

We also have a beautiful fairly private park with city view and bush walks located just around the corner, it's a great place to chill out with free BBQ area and playground overlooking the natural landscape, the bush tracks show you some native Australian fauna and flora.

River walks are near by and are a great way to get around as well. There's so much to do within this local vicinity (easy walk away) that you will be spoilt for choice.

Set amongst plentiful award winning cafes, bars, markets, restaurants, bakeries, butchers, nightlife, arts centers and a huge selection of many different restaurants, all within an easy walk away. There are seven (large and small) supermarkets within a 15 minute Walking Distance

There is plenty to do here, in fact, you can walk to many different local attractions and facilities. At the end of the block is a local market with cafe section which is worth a visit. In fact, walk in any direction and you are bound to stumble upon cafes and shops etc of a high standard.

Literally a five minute walk is the City Cat Ferry stop (these are very converted in Brisbane) and are wonderful to take you peacefully into the CBD, while you stand on the back of a high powered Catamaran boat (from 6am til midnight) and take in the sights as you travel the Brisbane River (AKA the River City) There are also lots of other buses that leave from even closer to our location.

Next to the City Cat stop are the express buses into the CBD (called 'City Glider') in under ten minutes in peak hour. There are also other buses even closer to our location.

If you want to go into the CBD then you can easily get there (to drive in peak hour is 5 minutes) walk in 25 via the river and under the Story Bridge.

Or, if you want to enjoy the local attractions, there are certainly plenty of them within a 15 minutes walk.

Next to the City Cat stop is Vernon Terrace, which is populated with lots of bars, restaurants, cocktail and beer specialist places, definitely worth a look.

At the City Cat stop we then have a River Walk that takes you across the top of the water down to New Farm Park, a beautiful park on the River, home to the fortnightly large Farmers Markets and the PowerHouse which is a funky converted building housing plays, comedy, bands, art, talks and so on.

Also, about ten minutes walk from our place we have the brand new Gasworks complex, complete with large Grocery Store, an organic market, chocolate restaurant and great cafes and eateries and worth a mention. The amazing historic Waterloo Hotel has been reopened and is very popular. The bar/restaurant has an Art Deco feel and is great to enjoy.

From the house in the other direction, we also have the famous James Street within a five minute walk. It is lined with things to see and do, including palace cinema, pizza place, bars, restaurants, clothes stores, boutiques, farmers markets, cafes. Definitely the place to be seen and get seen, Can get quite busy on the weekend and people from Brisbane flock to this area.

Not only that, we also have 'The Emporium' which is close to us and is filled with wonderful restaurants of the highest quality and amazing boutiques and stores.

You can also walk to Fortitude Valley, which is the night life and weekend market district, which also has China Town Mall where there is amazing Asian Restaurants at good prices.

In Fortitude Valley, there is a pedestrian mall with 24 hour food places and all your usual take away places. There are also some great places to get $8 steaks with all the usual accompaniments so it's worth a look. The weekend markets are fun and there are a few '$2 shops' here as well if you need any basics including discount souvenirs.

Brunswick Street, Connects to our street easily and is lined with restaurants, bars, art galleries, take away food, burger joints, IGA, Night Owl Convenience store open 24/7.

Next to the intersection with Brunswick Street and Kent Street (Our street) is the outlook of the story bridge where you can enjoy the park and amazing view and also start the *short cut into the CBD* from our location, where you take the footpath direct, which goes under the Story Bridge itself and through to the center of the city via a River Walk (ten minutes from park)

You can take the City Cat (five minutes walk from our place) to lots of great locations around Brisbane including the famed South bank which is really wonderful including a huge swimming pool and a man made beach as you look at the city skyline, surrounded by free BBQs, amazing parkland, performance center, art gallery, museum, science center, gallery of modern art and state library, it's easy to catch the city cat back to here and it's open really late. Also, don't forget the FREE inner city Ferry!

If you have any need to know a place to eat, just ask us. We also have a huge amount of menus out for your to look at (as well as brouchers of things to do) so be sure to check them out.

There are wonderful getaways with an 1 hour or so's drive....and beautiful day trips to think about: options include dolphins, islands, rainforests, beaches, swimming and more. If there is something particular you would like to do be sure to mention it to us as we may have some insider info for you.

We have lots of information about things to see and do so if you would like some inspiration, let us know what kind of holiday you are looking for and we will make some suggestions and show you some flyers.

The easiest train is Brunswick St Station (Fortitude Valley) which is where the night life is, this is one of the central major stops meaning you can go in pretty much any direction from here via train (including the Gold Coast, Roma Street Bus Terminal and The Airports) The train to the airport is a special train and is $16/each. If you would like a lift to the airport it can be arranged for $30.

These local places I've mentioned are so close, if you aren't walking there, you are looking at around a $5 - $10 taxi

  • This place is very wonderful. Exactly a terrace is very confortable for having a meal and drink. And Leon is very helpful to visitor.

    April 2014
  • Leon very helpful, didn't see much of him but was available if we needed him.

    Brilliant rooms. Good access to city with relatively near bus stops and ferry ports.

    All in all, a decent stay!

    April 2014
  • Leon's place was perfect! Really convenient to the city, bright and open and clean with great aircon and wifi and a cozy bed, just as it all says. And the SHOWER. I can't describe how glorious it was to have great water pressure and hot water after weeks in hostels. Loved it!

    March 2014
  • Everything was perfect!

    March 2014
  • Flying into Brisbane, Leon e-mailed directions which were perfect. After a wrong turn out of the airport, I was able to reach Leon's place in about 15-20 minutes.

    Leon greeted us (my wife and I) with a big smile and made us feel immediately "at home." Our room was spotless and the bathroom, with a terrific shower, was right down the hall.

    The internet was lighning fast and we were able to keep up contact with the outside world.

    Leon also answered questions about local restaurants and quick to give us maps and directions.

    Overall, our stay was most pleasant and when we're back in Brisbane, we hope Leon's place is available.

    March 2014
  • Leon was an excellent host and very easy to contact whenever I needed him. My stay was enjoyable and the house was very clean. Thanks Leon!

    March 2014
  • Leon was a very good host. We had requested an earlier checkin than noon and Leon accommodated by having the room ready as we arrived. When we got to the house Leon was proactive showing us the area on a map and what areas we could visit around us.
    The house was very well kept and the other guests all seemed kind. Thank you again, Leon.

    March 2014
  • Beautiful bedroom in a great house within a quiet, residential area of Brisbane which is still very close to the action.

    House includes a fully equipped kitchen which is spotlessly clean, washing machine and hanging space downstairs and a shared bathroom. There is also a large deck with outdoor seating and a bbq overlooking the garden.

    Leon is welcoming, very good natured, flexible and always there to assist with whatever is needed. Definitely recommended.

    March 2014
  • Leon's house is divided into two floors without indoor access between the floors. This means that as a guest (on the top floor) you really relax and do your thing. Leon's there if you need him, but otherwise you're left to run your own race, no fuss, which I loved.

    The house is clean, beautifully furnished, etc, the backyard deck and BBQ really is as nice as the site description maintains, all rooms have fans in addition to air con, kitchen is great, etc.

    A few other guests cycled in and out while I was there and that was a surprisingly nice vibe. Everyone was very relaxed and respectful, and again, you were left to do your own thing.

    I arrived late on a Sunday evening and for $15 Leon picked me up from the train, no dramas at all, and on the way home even took me to the IGA to buy some groceries for breakfast. You don't get that kind of experience with a hotel.

    This was my first time using AirBnB (in town for business) and I'll be booking with Leon anytime I'm in Brisbane again. Great cinema and restaurants nearby. High quality free wifi (plenty good enough for the video meeting I attended while there). Terrific ferry ride into CBD (including a dolphin sighting). Highly recommended! Thanks, Leon.

    February 2014
  • Leon was very helpful and welcoming. As soon as we arrived he showed us all the fun things to do in Brisbane and how to get there. The house was clean and the bed was comfortable. Thanks Leon!
