Leon's home was exactly as described. It has a great location, there was plenty of space for our whole group & the aircons in the bedrooms are a godsend on those balmy Brisbane days & evenings.
The kitchen is well stocked & Leon was more than happy to help with any requests or needs during our time.
Would stay again.
Great place to stay in your in Brisbane. Walking distance to fortitude valley (great place for food, pubs, clubs etc). Leon was a great host. No complaints.
Leon was very friendly and the house was great for us, would highly recommend!
Leon was a great host, very prompt with replies. House in a great location, with nice indoor/outdoor areas to relax and plenty of room. Kitchen is well-stocked. Only downside is only one bathroom and toilet is not separate.
Lens house was the most perfect place to host my friends hen's party. The beautiful back veranda covered in fascia bougainvillea was the perfect backdrop for our event.
Leon was an excellent host who was very helpful. The house is just as the pictures show.
Great location too with only a 2 min cab into the valley.
I would highly recommend Leon's house for any traveling families or people looking to host an event like I did.
Great location and so close to James Street and Brunswick Street. The lovely large living space and deck were perfect for our bridal shower. Leon was very helpful and friendly and allowed us to check in a bit earlier which was great.
Loved this place, thank you to Leon for the friendly local advice and an amazing venue for the girls night! So close to the valley it was perfect. Would love to stay again soon!
