Leon was very helpful and went to a lot of effort to make our stay enjoyable. There was a full cupboard at our disposal for breakfast and board games to keep the kids amused. James Street restaurants and shops are quite close by.
I had a wonderful time at the house - nicely located for queens street and the restaurant we went to that night. The hosts were wonderful and provided a run down of Brisbane city (which was great to know). The house was gorgeous and great for the group of people we had there that night.
This upstairs/street level home has 4 bedrooms (each with Foxtel) and a spacious and comfortable living/kitchen area. The kitchen was very well equipped and Leon stocked it with breakfast items (cereal, bread, fruit, milk), condiments and a complimentary chilled bottle of wine. This room has bifold doors and opens onto a massive outdoor deck. Leon is very friendly and was there to greet us with maps and a good rundown of the area. The highlights were the central location, which is close to restaurants, cafes and shopping, and the deck which overlooks the garden. We were a group of 4 singles and the space was perfect, but you could squeeze in more.
Friendly host, great location! Host ensured any concerns raised were resolved as soon as practicable.
Leon was a great host! Lots of information provided about the local area and the city. There were 5 of us staying over 4 nights and we never had any issues using the bathroom. Bedrooms were clean and tidy, lots of pantry food for us to use with tea and coffee on hand. Great area, great space. Would certainly rebook :)
The house was beautiful, clean, in a lovely setting and handy location. Leon was welcoming, accommodating and quick to reply and assist. Our group of eight was able to stay in comfort and hassle-free, everything we needed was right there. Thanks Leon!
