Welcome to our home. We are happy to offer you the entire downstairs living space in our renovated Queenslander. If you need more accommodation see our 2 bedroom listing.

The kitchenette is ‘hotel style’, i.e., a bar fridge, microwave, sink, toaster, kettle, with a selection of teas and coffee (plunger or instant), plus crockery and cutlery. No stove for cooking.

Location:
The house is on the north side of Milton Road (not south as shown on Airbnb map), 4km west of the Brisbane CBD, only a minute’s walk to a bus that will take you to the city in 10 to 15 minutes depending on traffic, and passes directly by Suncorp Stadium.
University of Queensland’s St Lucia campus is 10 minutes drive or 25 minutes by bus.
We are 20 minutes drive from the airport via the airport tunnel.
Within no more than 20 minutes walk from our house is Toowong shopping centre and train station, Wesley Hospital, the historic Toowong cemetery, Mt Coot-tha Botanical Gardens, the historic Regatta Hotel and the CityCat.
A Deli/Cafe, French Patisserie, Korean/Japanese eat in or take away, Pizza and general store are 4 minutes walk.

Your hosts:
We are professional people. Ron works from a home office so is around the house most days. We enjoy meeting new people and sharing experiences so we welcome you to join us a chat. We share our home with our dog Bundy, a very friendly Kelpie/Border Collie cross. We attend a local Baptist church on Sunday mornings. Being in the University precinct, the church attracts a wide range of international students. You would be welcome to join us.

This was my second visit and it was a pleasant as the first. It's a lovely experience and Ron & Marg go out of their way to make sure your stay is as comfortable as possible. I'm looking forward to my third visit!

Ron was a GREAT host. My visit started off with excellent communication from Ron making sure I had all the information needed before arrival. The unit was extremely comfortable – great bed – with everything one would need for a comfortable stay. I would highly recommend Valentine's Nest and look forward to returning again in the future.

Ron's place is brilliant. Very comfortable. The location is great. Ron is very friendly, polite and educated. I really enjoyed chatting with him. I didn't get to meet his wife, as she is away, but I'm sure she would be lovely too. I would stay again.

Ronald was an extremely hospitable host who went out of his way for us during the stay! His lovely place suited our every need and the mattresses were wonderfully comfy!

I feel really lucky to have found this place. It was even better than described: very spacious, private, and serene. I loved using the big 16m pool, including a late-night dip. Ron was a great host and I would gladly come and stay again.

This was the third time we have sent a staff member visiting Brisbane to stay at Valentine's Nest. As always, Ron was very easy to communicate with, the accommodation is very comfortable and the location is excellent. Would definitely recommend and we will be back!
