Ray und Cat haben mich herzlich empfangen, viele Tipps zur Umgebung gegeben und mir bei meinen Fragen geholfen. Ihr Haus ist wunderschön gelegen und das Zimmer ist sehr gemütlich und sehr sauber. Für alles was man brauchen könnte ist gesorgt.
Excellent host. Recommend to anyone who is visiting Brisbane and don't mind staying 25 minutes away from CBD and enjoy the peaceful environment of this property and its location.
I very much enjoyed my relaxing stay!! The home is in a beautiful area and is well appointed. Cat thoughtfully provided everything I could have asked for and my room and bed were very comfortable. I enjoyed the warm hospitality of husband Ray who made me feel very welcome. Highly recommend!!
Thanks to Cat, we enjoyed an unforgettable fantastic travel in Brisbane. The room is clean and tidy. Cat is so kind and considerate.
처음엔 시티에서 꽤나 멀어서 걱정했지만 내가 혼자서 시티로 나갔다 온 뒤 두 부부께서 꼭 다음엔 버스정류장까지 데려다 주신다고 하셨다.방도 진짜 진짜 좋고 무엇보다 그냥 나를 딸처럼 대해주셔서 엄청 편했다. 브리즈번을 지금은 떠나왔지만 다시 찾아간다면 꼭 찾아뵈야지 싶다.방에는 쿠키도 있고 초코볼도 있었고 우유도 있었다. 밑으로 내려가면 빵과 시리얼, 차, 커피, 우유나 콜라도 마실 수 있게 해주셨다. 매일아침 식빵에 여러가지의 어떤 잼을 바를까 고민하는건 진짜 행복했지만 내가 추천하는건 딸기잼!!맛있어요!!딸기잼이랑 땅콩버터잼이랑 같이 발라먹으면 맛있다.두 분 진짜 친절하시고 내가 직업을 어떻게 구할지 고민했을때도 도와주시고 집에 고양이가 한마리 있는데 이름은 미니! 강아지인줄 알았다. 내각 생각하던 고양이와는 많이 달랐다 강아지처럼 사람을 진짜 잘따른다. 내 방문열어놓으면 방앞에 있다가 문을 더 열어재꼈더니 안으로 스윽 들어와 내 노트북이 신기했는지 이리저리 살핀다. 집밖의 환경은 매우 마음에 들었다. 무엇보다 새소리가 들려올때면 자연속에 있는듯한 느낌이 든다. 자유롭고 편안하다. 완전좋아요!!
Ray and Cat's house is really lovely - modern, clean and with great amenities. Our room was very cool, with a fan and air con. The breakfast was great and Ray was really helpful with taking us to the bus stop and giving us a few hints about where to go next. He also lit the bbq for us one evening, which was really appreciated.
The only negatives were that our designated bathroom was downstairs, next to the kitchen and TV area, which compromised privacy somewhat.
It's also worth noting that it is a considerable distance from the centre of Brisbane and also far from the mountains and hills that surround it, even with a drop off at the bus stop. It makes going out in the city in the evening virtually impossible and taking a hike rather difficult.
We were also surprised to see a couple of other guests staying there while we were, including one permanent lodger. Not a problem as such, but it felt more like a guest house than a room in a private home.
The cat is very friendly and miaows happily when stroked behind the ears.
Overall we had a lovely stay and really enjoyed meeting Ray, who is a real character and dedicated host. If you're looking for a city break, however, I'd recommend looking closer in.
Nice room very clean. Nice welcoming.
