When you arrive, you will receive your own Map and shown where things are and how to get there. It's a good time for you to plan further what you would like to do in Brisbane. I certainly make plenty of suggestions on things to do and will let you know of local events occurring during your stay. As life long residents who are also world travellers, we know how useful it is to receive this information and you may have things you would like to know more about that you have read on this profile.

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

  • Leon's house is a great place for exploring Brisbane. We were able to walk and take convenient transit everywhere. The room was comfortable with fast wifi. Leon was a good host, even purchasing umbrellas for guest use in the rare Brisbane rain.

    March 2014
  • Best location in Brisbane. Thanks for your hospitality Leon. Although it was only for 1 night we found your place very comfortable and clean. Above all the location and proximity to everything was a big plus for our short stay. We didn't want to stay right in the cbd so this was definitely a good choice. Once settle Leon gave us a map and a run down of where everything is. We chose to jump on the CityCat and do a round trip in the afternoon. The best way to see Brisbane I think!
    Thanks again Leon, would stay here again if I'm ever in Brisbane.

    March 2014
  • Leon was a great host to stay with, very accomodating & friendly while also allowing for guest privacy. It was also very nice after (email hidden)'l flight that he picked me up from the aiport for a small fee. The room was very comfortable & clean with the house situated in a quiet neighborhood that is close to all the cafe and culture highlights of Brizzie. Would happily stay at Leon's place again!

    February 2014
  • Staying in an airbnb property we expected to be welcome into someone's home but Leon's place was a glorified hostel.
    With four bedrooms and only one bathroom on each floor, this was our biggest concern with the property. We also didn't feel like it was very clean.
    During our travels we stayed at numerous airbnb's and this is the only place that we received a key to lock our room. To me this indicates that it was more of a hostel than a home, with a high volume of travelers coming through.
    If you're looking for an actual airbnb experience with a home feeling and vibe I wouldn't recommend this place.

    February 2014
  • once again. great hospitality. very clean and friendly. thanks.

    February 2014
  • Leon was a great host, and the house was very nice and perfectly positioned. Very close to the city, and the price was very cheap for what was offered. I highly recommend

    February 2014
  • Very nice location for walking access to most of what you can do in Brisbane for a weekend. Leon was even willing to pick us up/drop us off at the airport for a reasonable price.

    January 2014
  • Leon was a great host. Very friendly, easy to reach out to and gave us some great tips for the city. The house is lovely and we met some very nice people also staying there in other rooms. TV and air con were huge bonuses and made the stay extra comfortable. We wished we had stayed longer!

    January 2014
  • Our family stayed at Leon's home for several days. Leon and his wife are very friendly and helpful. The location is fantastic - it is close to the city, shops, cafes and public transport. We highly recommend them as hosts.

    January 2014
  • Very friendly host and a nice room. We were only a bit disappointed about hairs in the bathroom.
