Come and stay at the Klaus Haus! You will have a good sized private room in a stylish apartment in the James St precinct of Fortitude Valley
The apartment is industrial/warehouse style, with the living area and kitchen flowing onto the balcony. The furniture is modern and comfortable, and there are great cross breezes, which keeps the apartment cool in summer. It is on the top floor (second) with views of the heritage listed St Patrick's church. WARNING: My lowest rating average is for cleanliness, so if that is a very important consideration, my apartment is not suitable. It is not as clean as a hotel. It's my home, not a hotel; the cross-breeze carries dust in and I leave the sliding doors open to cool it down; and I am working full-time as well as having many other obligations. I also can't afford to replace the carpets (they get vacuumed, but you know how carpets end up after a while regardless!). The living area has concrete paint, but the wrong paint appears to have been chosen, so it's become very scuffed. Pest control is done annually (in fact, it is compulsory) - it is very comprehensive, going into all rooms, cupboards and drawers. So if pests are your main concern, you should be ok to book; but if dust and a polished, unscuffed look and new carpets are your main concern, I suggest you book at one of the many other apartments nearby! There are also some hotels pretending to be Airbnb properties. They are quite easily recognised, and they may suit you as well (although the prices will be higher).
The room on offer is a good sized bedroom with a queen bed. The bathroom with a bath and shower is next to the room (not en-suite), and the toilet is separate and a little further away near the living room. There is a large built in wardrobe, and the half wall of glass sliding doors slide all the way back to give the room a spacious, breezy feel.
The living area has comfortable lounges, and a small TV and DVD player. The kitchen is small, but well equipped.
If there is a group of you, I can accommodate extra guests. There is a double bed in a separate room, and a hotel-quality folding single bed which can be used in either room.
The second room is off the living room, and is internal. It can also be made part of your booking. Although I've limited the number of guests to 5, I'm happy to discuss your requirements if you have a larger group.
The price for two people is based on sharing one bed, but if you would like to sleep in separate beds I can arrange this for a $20 per night fee. (If you want to book with this option, please send an enquiry and I'll send a pre-approval with the adjusted price.) If there is just two people, but you both want your own bedroom, please book for 3 guests and then you will automatically get two rooms.
Interaction with guests
I'm not home that much but I'm happy to give you advice on things to see and do locally, around Brisbane or the Gold and Sunshine Coasts or even a little further inland.
Other things to note
There is a sauna and a plunge pool in the common area of the building which you are welcome to use during the posted opening hours. (Please keep noise in these areas to a minimum as a courtesy to other residents.)
There is no secure parking readily available, but there is limited visitor parking, and I have a permit to park in the local streets for free which you can borrow to put in your car window. If you need secure parking, I may be able to arrange this with advance notice, but it will be 10-15 minutes' walk from the apartment.
Once we have agreed on a check in time, please keep to it as closely as I have to wait at the apartment to let you in. There will be situations outside of your control that could make you late, if this occurs, just keep me informed.
I expect guests to treat the apartment as they would their home. The living area and balcony are yours - I don't use them. Please wash up your dishes. Thanks!
