Walking distance to trendy Paddington shops and restaurants, cafes and Woolworths. Short bus ride to city, Suncorp Stadium and Transport Centre. Large carpeted bedroom with Queen-size bed and sofa which could sleep an extra person. The bedroom is private with an ensuite bathroom and is located downstairs in a character house surrounded by a large leafy garden in which to relax. There is also a large open space available with laundry and kitchen facilities.

The space

If you would like to enjoy the unique lifestyle of sub-tropical Brisbane, including its fauna and flora your stay here will be rewarded with interactions with our iconic Kookaburras, colourful Parrets and Possums! You will be able to easily access the city and Southbank with all its entertainment opportunities but return to your own private restful leafy oasis. A truly unique location!

Guest access

Apart from the bedroom there is a private undercroft area where you can sit for dining and relaxing. Guests may wander through the garden if they so desire.

Interaction with guests

I am originally from Brisbane but have spent a considerable number of years overseas in various countries. I speak French and am happy to assist visitors who need information about the city, my neighbourhood, how to get around and where to dine or what there is to see and do in Brisbane and surrounding areas.

Sandra has created a very peaceful and spacious retreat. It is perfect for a couple. A beautiful room that meets all needs if guests want a super well located home away from home while keeping busy each day with exploring or meeting or visiting. However to expand the experience by enjoying the beautifully decorated room plus cooking for yourselves, then the large outdoor cooking and living room in the centre of this old Queenslander makes Sandra’s space very versatile for many different needs if guests. The location is great. So close to the Brisbane CBD and quaint and full of varied and creative shops, Paddington, just ads to the excellent value. We will be back to spend a lot longer. We stayed for a week but plan on longer stays. Thanks Sandra.

This accommodation is neat, spacious and very private. The house is well located and just a short stroll from Redhill and Paddington shops and restaurants. I would thoroughly recommend it and the owner is very attentive.

Sandra's place is perfect for a peaceful stay in Brisbane. The space was large, comfortable, clean and beautifully decorated. A bonus was the gift pack of fruit, chocolates and chip. It's a short walk to cafes in Paddington, and for those without cars right on a bus stop to get to the CBD and Southbank.

Had a fantastic time and its location is wonderful and close to the action at Paddington! Beautifully presented apartment with Sandra paying exceptional attention to detail! Will certainly be coming again.

Response from Sandra:
Yes I know that's a bit of a problem and mean to do something about it. Thanks for the tip. I have been onto a landscaper to get some work done. I have to chase him up. The problem, of course, is that the house is set far back from the road and the garden is confusing. I will get onto it!

I was searching for a lovely environment that was airy, sunny and bright, clean, safe and private with my own entrance. Sandra's place was all of this. Her space is tranquil with big trees and birds singing outside your windows set within a roaming cottage garden. Location was perfect and so close to everything. Thank you Sandra for being such a great host. Belle maison!

Thanks again Sandra and Eleanor for a great little stay! The space had everything we needed and communication was fantastic. It's a cosy private space with lovely views into the garden. The area is great, full of little cafes and shops within a reasonable travel. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again when visiting Brisbane.
