I was born in Australia and grew up on a dairy farm. I am single with no children. I have two Maltese dogs (only allowed in certain part of house at night time).

I am an ex -primary school teacher and run a tuition business from home in the afternoons but now mainly concentrate on providing the best accommodation I can for my airbnb and long-term guests.

I have a good sense of humour and enjoy a wine at night time. I have travelled extensively over the years and enjoy chatting and hearing about the different experiences of other travellers who stay here.

Previously I have hosted International students (homestay) but now look forward to providing excellent accommodation for the person/couple or small group who would like to experience life in the outer, quieter suburbs of Brisbane and yet close to all (website hidden). direct transport into city, walking distance to grocery shops,(cheapest in Brisbane) tavern, restaurants etc.

I live in a huge 2 storey house. The house has three sections. My living quarters and kitchen is separate to the guests. For the guests I have provided 2 well-equipped kitchens. One has a large oval table with 6 chairs. The other is brand new with stainless appliances. All kitchens have big refrigerators and there is ample pantry space. I have also organised a system so that there is no confusion of ownership of grocery items. There are 3 bathrooms, two powder rooms and 4 toilets. The facilities and amenities in this house are more than adequate and there is never a wait when these facilities are in use.

I have recently added more common areas to the house for guest’s enjoyment. One is a lounge room. This room has 2 leather lounges, a 55" television, DVD player with sound bar. It has a coffee maker, bar fridge, even a popcorn corn maker. This room is air-conditioned. Free tea and coffee is also set up in this room. This is a great room for guests to meet and relax or watch TV or listen to music.

I have also added a shaded pergola area. This long area is on the guest side of the house. It has an electric barbeque, bar and ample seating which are surrounded by flower laden pot plants. Also another great area for relaxing with that tea or coffee and catching up for a chat.

All my rooms - 8 in total - are excellent value for money. Most of them have air-con, all have ceiling fans, all have top quality mattresses, pillows, bamboo sheets and/or 100% Egyptian cotton sheets. All the rooms are tastefully decorated and have different configurations. They range from an ensuite to a bunkroom. There would definitely be a room that would suit your needs and budget.

The rooms and all common areas are kept immaculately clean and I always endeavour to provide improvement where needed and maintenance of existing facilities.

Laundry, parking, fast Wi-Fi are all provided free of charge. There are no cleaning fees.

My intention is to cater for guests who are budget conscience and also want luxury, clean accommodation. Most of my guests stay longer than intended and some, when given the chance come back to stay again and again.

Even though I am not in the city (30-35mins by bus); cheap shops and public transport is only 2 min walk from the house.

I would be extremely interested and surprised, and would like to hear, if there is accommodation anywhere in Brisbane that has this value for money that is provided here at Oxley.

So...hope to see you soon - I will reply to your enquiries as soon as humanly possible - even the middle of the night.

Thank you for taking the time to read all of this.
