Hello! We are Cathy & Ben, a professional couple with 2 dogs and a big house to share! Looking forward to your stay.
Ben and Cathy's place was an absolute comfort to stay in. The kitchen was well equipped and this made meal preparation and cooking really easy and enjoyable. There was plenty of storage space around the unit which would easily accommodate for a longer stay. Thanks for making our stay in brisbane so comfortable!
Staying here was a wonderful experience. It really was like a little home away from home. We stayed with our two children, and staying here was easy. Our children loved Jemima and Rocket (the local furry four-legged hosts) and spent an entire morning throwing ball for them. Even when both children got sick (due to a nasty bug picked up at school), the apartment was extremely comfortable, clean and well-fitted out. We would recommend Cathy and Ben's apartment to anyone who wants a clean, safe home to come to each day/night.
This apartment also represented great value for money.
Fantastic apartment, close to many amenities, this is an excellent area for Brisbane CBD, Sunshine Coast etc. Kathy and Ben made us feel so welcome and were excellent hosts! They are really knowledgable about the area and made us feel right at home. If you need a home in Brisbane, look no further!

Ben and Cathy were excellent hosts; helpful when we occasionally needed help but leaving us plenty of space to carve out our own lives in Brisbane. The accommodations were more than adequate for our needs; just three blocks from the community pool and 6 blocks from downtown Corinda and the train station. We used them a lot with ease. On-street parking was just the slightest congested, but with a week or so to adjust, to neighborhood practices, all worked out fine . Our downstairs "flat" with two bedrooms, living room with dining table nearby, small kitchen and laundry were just fine for our needs including a one-time hosting of a guest in the spare bedroom. Noise from upstairs was minimal - only when Ben and Cathy occasionally hosted guests with small children - and on the rare occasion that we noticed upstairs noise, it always calmed down well before bedtime. Bathroom facilities were fine with a ready and welcome supply of hot water for morning showers. We left before summertime temps soared so never did have to test the air-conditioning, but indoor temps with windows open and an occasional fan in the evening made for very comfortable living. The price was VERY fair, especially given the high cost of living in the Brisbane area and the desirability of this location.Once the dogs got to know us, they became good friends and their occasional barking at strangers was welcome. When we return, we'll be hoping that Ben and Cathy are still AirBnB hosts.
Such a lovely little place in a cute little suburb (super close to the train station). Cathy and Ben were lovely and very helpful :)
Cathy and Ben were very welcoming, full of good advice about Brisbane. The house is perfect as you have it just for yourself. Very comfy.You need a car as its 20 minutes away from the city center. A couple very keen on meeting new people, interesting, and they know how to make you have a great time! if you are stopping by Brisbane you really have to go to Cathy and Ben! This is definitly an adress to keep! A real pleasure to meet them and a great stay.
This was a lovely, clean, uncluttered place to stay with all the amenities one would want and was close to public transport. We would definitely stay here again.
Thanks so much!
Great place. Beautiful house. Clean and warm. Big bedrooms (great mattress), big living room, lovely kitchen. I was in this wonderful house with 2 other members of my band. We really enjoy our stay. It's a shame that we didn't get to meet Cathy & ben, because I'm sure they are beautiful people. They were really helpful.
We were happy to share our house with Cathy and Ben and friends for Ben's birthday. A terrific time was had by all and we hope to see them again soon. David and Angela
Cathy & Ben are an easy going, no problem couple who will be welcome anywhere.
Thanks for staying with us and we hope to see you for a longer stay next time you are passing this way.
Cathy and Ben were enjoyable to have here. It was lovely to meet them. They are welcome to return any time.
We really enjoyed Cathy and Ben's company, they were great guests and we hope they return in the winter to enjoy the cosy fires, crisp weather and more experiences on the Granite Belt.

It was pretty cool meeting other AirBnB hosts and what a fun couple! We were laughing and enjoying each other's company from the moment we met. These guys are just good fun to have around. Invite them to your next party. Or go stay at their place and invite yourself to 'their' party! ;)
Cathy and Ben are welcome to drop in anytime they are in town. A very down-to-earth couple, great conversationists and easy to get to know.
Thanks for choosing our place to stay and we hope to see you again in the near future.
Definitely recommend as guests and I'm sure they are top hosts, too.
All the best!
Cathy und Ben sind hervorragende Gastgeber. Wir haben wärend unserer zweimonatigen Praktika in Brisbaner Krankenhäusern bei ihnen gewohnt. Die Atmosphäre ist sehr ungezwungen, wenn man lieber für sich sein möchte, ist das problemlos möglich, wenn man gerne Gesellschaft am Abend mit einem Glas Wein oder ein gemeinsames Abendessen möchte, ist es sehr nett mit den beiden. Sie sind sehr zuvorkommend. Das Appartment ist sehr gut eingerichtet und man findet dort alles, was man braucht. Die Küche ist besser eingerichtet als unsere eigene. Die beiden Hunde sind sehr gut erzogen. Wir waren nämlich zu Anfang etwas skeptisch (haben selber keine Haustiere), aber die beiden Hunde hören aufs Wort, wenn man sie wegschickt, freuen sich aber auch sehr, wenn man mit ihnen spielen möchte.
Wir hatten eine wunderschöne Zeit bei Cathy und Ben mit abendlichen Unterhaltungen bei einem Glas Wein oder auch bei sehr leckerem Essen mit den beiden.
Wir würden jederzeit wieder hinfahren (wenn Australien doch nur nicht so weit weg wäre) und könne die beiden nur weiterempfehlen. Vielen Dank Cathy und Ben.
I am a 21 year old female and I am travelling around Australia for a year and visiting from the UK..Brisbane was my first stop! I had been recommended to stay with Ben & Cathy and I'm very glad that I did. I was picked up from the airport by Ben & brought back to the house in Enoggera... The house is very large, clean & a great location.. It's a short walk from the train station to get yourself around the city. I thoroughly enjoyed Cath & Bens company and was made to feel very welcome..they were very helpful & even cooked me dinner on a couple of occasions.. Yum!! We also did a few fun things around the city to build our friendship :-) I would highly recommend for anyone to stay with this lovely couple and I will certainly stay again when I'm back in Brisbane!!!
I hadn't met Cathy & Ben prior to coming out to Brisbane, I'm from England and this was my first visit to Australia (I'm 23 years old).. I was so pleased that when I arrived they both made me feel very welcome and I didn't feel like I was intruding at any stage during my month long stay. Ben kindly picked me up from the airport in the early hours of the morning which was a very thoughtful thing to do considering I hadn't met him before. The room that i stayed in was very spacious and had an extremely comfortable double bed. The house itself is very large and open plan and has everything that you could possibly need !! The bathroom was a very good size too and had both a bath and a large shower, the swimming pool outside was also very nice.
It is only a 5 minute walk to the local train station (Enoggera) which has regular trains running to the city (about a 10 minute journey).
I had a fantastic time staying with these guys and some even better evenings on the decking eating some great 'Aussie Bbqs' (although I was quite persistent with my request for an authentic Australian bbq, so maybe I was a lucky Brit there !! ) , considering the awesome and competitve price for this stay, I would genuinely recommend these guys to anyone who is considering staying in Brisbane and when I pop back into the city I shall certainly be requesting my room back. Will miss them both very much as I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know them both (and their 2 friendly dogs Rocket & Jemima ) P.S If this website gave the opportunity to provide star ratings, needless to say I would give them a 5/5.
