We are married couple living in Brisbane, Australia as illustrator and animator for kids.
Really lovely unit, with indoor to outdoor flow. Spacious and clean, nice and tidy rooms and kitchen. Very safe area with nice neighborhood. Sem was a great host, trustworthy and understanding. I really enjoyed myself.
The unit was great and is located in peaceful street. It has all basic things and is comfortable. I recommend it especially to people who start a new carrier and life in Brisbane, like me.
Thank you Sem for a very good start!
Myo and Sem’s apartment in Gordon Park is, for the price, a great place to stay.
The location is fantastic for anyone who has a car or is willing to take public transit - especially transit. A 2 minute walk to the Kedron Brook Station can quickly get you to downtown, the museum district or Chermside Shopping centre in less than 10 minutes. Overall, this was great for us.
The apartment itself is comfortable and it’s description is accurate. The internet is excellent - something that can be difficult or expensive to find in Australia (amazingly). There’s a full kitchen - stove, oven and refrigerator which really helps to keep the costs down. It’s worth mentioning that there’s no air conditioning or TV - it’s mentioned in the description but it can be easy to miss. We were quite happy to have great internet instead of a TV!
We stayed during one of the hottest heat waves in recent memory (44C!) and found that the fan and the shaded back patio provided a very livable temperature inside even on the hottest days.
Sem and Myo are lovely and were very helpful when making sure we were enjoying the flat. For instance, the fridge died during our stay and they arrived the next day with a replacement. That’s pretty exceptional care.
The neighbourhood is quiet and feels very safe with a great little grocery store a few minutes walk away.
Again, for the price, this place is great!
For the Price it was good! Close to the bus station and Internet so we could plan out our journeys to the city~. No tv, but that's fine, we brought a computer, but a toaster would have been nice to have, and we could only use the stovetop for meals. We still had a great time though! Movies, Science center and markets! woohoo~
Have a very good stay at Sem's apartment. Clean & near to everywhere. Next time sure will come back with my kids
I came from France to Brisbane to improve my english and I booked Sem's room to start this new adventure. The room was perfect to stay few days in order to find a houseshare. Bus station is pretty close as the commercial centre to buy some foods. The place is also very good to make a jog along the Kedron Brook Bikeway. Sem and Miyo are great cooks and it was a pleasure to share a meal with them.
I recommand the room to anyone who want a peaceful place to discover Brisbane.
Great stay at Sems. The room has enough space and storage and the bed was comfortable. The apartment is in a good location- not a far distance to nearest shops/bus stop. Sem is such a nice person and it was great to get to know him. We really enjoyed the BBQ we had together. Would highly recommend anyone to stay here.
We had a very good stay at Myo and Sem´s place. The room was big enough and everthing was very clean. We could use everything in the house (kitchen, laundry, internet). Myo and Sem are great hosts and very helpful. We enjoyed the lunch that we had together, it was delicious :-) It is about a 10 minute walk to the bus station where you can catch a bus to the city. Also, the area around the flat is very nice and in a very quiet neighbourhood. We would definitely stay again!
We had a very nice one week stay in Myo and Sem place.
There were both very helpful and careful for everything. The place is 10 min walk from Bus stop that brings you in Brisbane center quickly and without any line change. Our bedroom was very clean, as was the bathroom and kitchen we could share with our hosts.
We would recommend this place to anybody...!!!
Gordon Park was a great area to stay. The apartment was very comfortable, spacious and had everythiong we needed for the few weeks we were there.
The home was very close to the river, where you can run, walk, skate, cycle, take the dog, plenty of space for everyone to do what they needed to do.
My girls loved walking/running by the river in search of new parks, there favourite was actually the one near the house, as it had exercise equipment for adults and swings and slides for them.
Any questions we asked Sem with, he was very quick to respond.
The shops were easy to walk to, with hairdressers, supermarket, post office, banks all about 10 minutes walk away.
A great stay, highly recommended.
