A short walking distance to shops and parks this massive room has its own private entrance and parking space. The room has a bar area housing a microwave, toaster, kettle, electric cooker and fridge. The large, private bathroom comes with bathroom essentials including freshly laundered towels, shampoo, conditioner and body wash. This is a fun room with a lot of character and is sure to wrap its embrace around anyone who visits.

The space

The room is kept very clean and has a very calming aspect. It is a family friendly home so children and pooches are most welcome - we have a pug dog of our own. The home is brick, so is well insulated, however, there is an oil heater in the room which will keep you warm in winter. For the price, it's a must visit. Please know that this is a family home so sometimes the sounds of life will be heard within its walls. We welcome quests who don't mind hearing a bit of human chatter now and then and ask that you feel comfortable to do the same. During your stay please feel free to talk, laugh and live at your leisure. Guests should also note that this space is on the ground level of a 2 story home so you will hear footsteps and plumbing from time to time. Our pricing reflects this. If you require silence, we have another room available on the top floor of our home. This room is listed under 'Heated room with private ensuite' and is very private. A helpful filter could be 'Harristown'. Look forward to meeting you!

Guest access

Guests can access the upstairs kitchen if needed. There's also an undercover BBQ and sitting area adjacent to your room. You have direct access to this area. Feel free to utilize it as much as you please. We like our guests to feel right at home.

Interaction with guests

We are fairly private but happy to help out if required. Don't be put off by the price, this is a really lovely room...older style, but not lacking in anything. We are just looking to scrape up a bit of loose change...and, quite simply, this place is too big for us, it needs to be shared. We will be up early in the morning to get ready for school and work. We do our best to keep this movement to a minimum if our guests are sleeping but please be aware that there will be noise at this time.

Other things to note

Smoking outdoors is okay. The area is far enough away from the room and house for this not to bother anyone. Feel comfortable.

Please note that this house is home to two Airbnb rooms. One downstairs, the other upstairs. Both are booked solid. It is likely that during your visit there will guests staying upstairs. There is absolutely no need for interaction as both rooms have their own private entries, bathrooms and are on different floors. However, additional people contributes to additional noise. So far this only seems to be a problem on weekends, however, to ensure all visitors enjoy their stay we do ask that guests please be mindful of this and keep noise to a minimum after 10pm.

A lovely, spacious, relaxing space for our mini-break in Toowoomba. As mentioned in the description - you can expect to hear daily living noises as Brooke lives upstairs; and if you're planning a weekend stay - the neighbours can get a bit rambunctious. In saying that, Brooke is very open and communicative about all this, so we knew what to expect and it didn't impact on our stay. Will definitely be booking again when we next visit Toowoomba!

This was a great place to stay while at the residential school of USQ, only 7 minutes away from the campus. Only downside was the lack of wifi but being so close to uni meant I just stayed back at the library and there were no issues at all.

Once again people, please read the listing description thoroughly. Nowhere on the listing description does it say the room comes with WiFi. If you want a clean, private, massive room with its own bathroom and private entry for $35 a night - no WiFi- this is your place.

Hi all,
I'm a third year uni student who's looking to help support myself while I finish my studies.

I have been living in and around Toowoomba for several years now working with a number of different arts groups scattered throughout the district.

We have just moved back to Toowoomba after spending a year exploring central Australia where I was born. Two very different climates and lifestyles.

We aim to offer good, clean comfy accommodation at a very reasonable price. So far we have been flat out! There's barely a day spare in our Airbnb calender month, so it's best to book early.

We hope to see you soon.
