We are right across the passage (3 mins drive) from the new Sandstone Point Hotel.

It's only a few minutes drive to any of the great spots on Bribie Island. 45 mins to Brisbane Airport, 55 mins to Brisbane city, 30 mins to Australia Zoo, and not much more to the Sunshine Coast. Gold Coast about a 85-90 min drive.

Keith's Place is the most booked unit on Bribie, for VERY good reasons.
Easy access to swimming (across the road) all water sports, shops, parks, restaurants, clubs, fantastic views, free barbecue shelters across the road, walking and riding tracks (2 bikes provided), ocean (surf) beaches a short drive away. Now there is (free) new stainless steel mini-gyms throughout the park and an awesome new kids playground minutes walk away. Convenient drive to Brisbane or Sunshine coast, and many many more attractions.
Interaction with Guests
We interact with our guests by email, phone and personally meet and greet each and every guest, and try to inform them of all the great features of our unit and fantastic activities available to them, right on their doorstep.
Bribie and its' surrounds are "picture postcard" beautiful. It is one of the best kept secrets in South East Queensland. A short drive from Brisbane or Sunshine Coast. The Sunsets from the front patio of the unit are fantastic and often stunning!! People in our area are very friendly, and will often chat with you and be interested in where you're from. This is a beautiful place. Check out Beautiful Bribie Island on this video. (website hidden) (copy and paste into your browser)
Most guests arrive by car and then use it "a little" for getting around, but not that much. Many attractions are in easy walking distance. Public transport exists, but I doubt you would use it.
Other Things to Note
Fully self-contained unit, with everything you would ever need, including Barbecue, Bikes, Books, Games, DVD player, but best of all......the water just across the street.
Normal holiday rental property rules apply. It is expected that the place is left in a same state as it is found. Obviously we do a clean after guests vacate, but it expected to be left in a clean and tidy state.
If you use the stove, the oven, the microwave, the Barbecue, please clean them.
Please put rubbish in the provided plastic bags and deposit in the appropriate bin, either general (green) or recycle (yellow-top) bins.
Please clean the clothes dryer lint filter after every use, as to not do so, is a fire hazard.
Please empty dish-washer and return washed items to the cupboards.
No Smoking inside. Smoking allowed on balcony. Sorry No Pets.
Steve was the most welcoming host. He made us feel easy about getting to the location - a doddle and just past the bridge connecting island and mainland, showed us through the apartment and facilities and gave us handy tips regarding eating out and enjoying all that Bribie Island has to offer. The apartment is spacious, gracious and well equipped, even including bicycles! Arriving to find bread, milk, fruit and tea and coffee underlined Steve's caring personal touch. He was tactful and only a phone call away if we had a question.
The location is to die for, being water frontage and a short stroll to eateries through beautiful parklands. A small chemist, bottle shop and supermarket are two minute's walk away. We travelled with young children and the extensive park caters for every age from toddler to oldie with playground and exercise equipment. Sunsets over the water were spectacular. The ocean is calm and the beaches white and clean with plenty of boats to watch. the other side of the island, the east side has the pounding waves and surf.
We'll be returning and staying for longer!
A homely well-equipped unit in a brilliant location. Topped off by great hosts who’ve thought of all the little things to make for an enjoyable stay. Very pleasant to deal with. Highly recommended.
Steve and Sandy were great hosts who made us very welcome and thought of all the little things we may have required. We got all of the photos we hoped to get as the location had fabulous water views.
Great hosts combined with a really nice place made our stay there very pleasant and memorable. The unit has all you need and Steve and Sandy gave us all we needed to get started as well as giving us a few tips on what to do on the island. This place is also good with kids - shops, BBQ, playground, fishing possibility (which was a highlight for us) all very close. May many other also get to enjoy this lovely spot!
What a superb getaway for us from our suburban home in Brisbane to the peace and tranquility of this unit on Bribie. Fantastic views, gorgeous outlook and really comfortable unit for us to enjoy our wedding anniversary! The unit was really well appointed, very clean and tidy - just as the photo shows. We really loved walking along the foreshores of the passage; the waterway was delightful.
Steve and Sandy were really helpful and was able to provide some flowers and champagne to surprise my husband; and was even able to have Elvis Presley seranading us as we arrived at the unit. It was so touching to have their help to make this a special celebration holiday for us. Thanks Steve and Sandy, we really love the unit and will return again with our family.
Everything was as described in the information or even beyond! The unit was really clean and tidy and included all the items needed with some extra :). The hosts were really lovely and helpfull. We felt really welcome. The view from the unit to the ocean was beautiful. We recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Bribie Island!
Wonderful clean spacious apartment with everything you need at your disposal. Complimented with views which are glorious. No need to use the car once you've parked as everything is in walking distance. Wonderful hosts who consider all your needs and add those extra special touches. Loved it and will be back again with my family.
About the Host, Steve
Hi we are Steve and Sandy Gregory. I (Steve) am from Brisbane, but travel the world in my job. Sandy is originally from Germany, and we both now live at Sandstone Point, near Bribie Island. Our Air BnB unit was my Dads' home for 28 years, and he adored living there, until he passed away, a bit over two years ago, at age 90. We have kept the place for holiday rental, because Keith would have been delighted that others got to share a little piece of his paradise. It's now fully refurbished, has everything you would ever want, in a holiday unit, including position, position, position!!!! You'll love it!!
