Not going to lie - our place is incredible! Situated in a lovely converted Woolstore by the river and close to the city, this place has it all. Cafes, restaurants, bars, buses, and river ferry are literally on our doorstep. Take a stroll along the Brisbane River or explore the also-hip neighbouring suburbs. We offer a unique, casual and generally stress-free environment with a hint of luxury. We challenge you to find a better deal than staying with us!
The London Woolstore is one of Brisbane's most charming and luxurious apartment complexes. It's located in the trendy (city adjacent) suburb of Teneriffe. If you haven't heard of the area ask anyone from Brisbane and they'll all say something like 'ohhh Teneriffe, how lovely'.
I (Dean) am a small business owner and our resident couple Meredith and Dan work in Marketing / Advertising (don't worry they have their own bathroom). We're all pretty relaxed 'go with the flow' type people and are almost always up for a chat and a casual drink, but if all you want is silence or alone time - we can provide that too. We are pretty good at cleaning up after ourselves but you may find the occassional plate in the sink or clothes in the dryer. Stay with us and we'll do everything to ensure your trip is as comfortable and enjoyable as possible :).
Bus and river Ferry terminals are located literally across the road and the train station is also only a short walk away. We're 2km from Brisbane CBD (so 10m on a bus moreorless), Fortitude Valley (the entertainment district) is even closer and our rival for hipness New Farm is basically next door.
The apartment has polished floor boards, high ceilings with exposed beams, open-plan dining and living area, river views from upstairs, unlimited super fast wifi, pool, security card to enter the building, HD TV, vintage decor, ducted air conditioning, washing machine/dryer and a modern kitchen with all the necessities. We also have a dedicated airbnb cabinet packed with assorted cereals, spreads, milks, teas and so on.
Your room is located on the bottom floor. With a high ceiling, wardrobe space, and a queen bed. It's suitable for singles or couples...Visitor parking is located behind thr building off Ethel Street and secured car parking is available for an additional $10 per day.
We've found our place works really well for travellers looking for an affordable break from the hostel life and people on business trips who prefer to live like a local instead of the same old hotel room. Keep in mind that our kitchen/living area is located upstairs so it's not ideal for the elderly and/or physically impaired.
The London Woolstore is host to some of Brisbane's nicest restaurants and bars. Fancy a craft beer and some wings? Just head downstairs. Fancy a fine dining experience? Just head across the road! A short stroll from the front door will lead you to gyms, more restaurants, Brisbane's most prestigious microbreweries, cocktail bars, more cafes, the river, specialty stores, grocery stores - you get the idea. It's a really cool place.
Note* We have a great relationship with on-site management who are aware/supportive of our airbnb operation and are happy to help our guests when possible...if you leave your key in the apartment for example. We've stayed in airbnb's before where it was not permitted by management (often the case) and felt very unwelcome so we've made sure this will not happen to our guests.
- You'll be given a secure access key to the building
- Unlimited wifi
- Main Bathroom (Shared)
- Your own television
- Riverside gym...we're happy to loan you our swipe key ;)
Interaction with guests
Please ask if you need anything at all, I work just around the corner and will happily make myself available if you need anything. If you want any hot tips on where to go in Brisbane (for eating, drinking, singing, dancing, or any other form of entertainment) ask Dan and/or his girlfriend Meredith.
Please clean up after yourself when you are using the kitchen or other public areas. No smoking or pets in the apartment. Can have guests visit but not stay the night unless prior arrangement. We trust you to trust your instincts when it comes to noise i.e. not blasting music on a weeknight.
My name is Dean. I'm a happy go lucky type of person who enjoys life in general.
I enjoy travelling, love a good move and wine. Run a small business in the city. I've used airbnb as a host and a guest and enjoy how it helps give more authentic and friendly experiences.
