Stripped down, clean space for weary travellers. 25 minutes to Toowoomba & less than 40 minutes to Warwick. Centrally located for Darling Downs business people or commuters. We work in Toowoomba, evenings we relax with our dog, kittens and chickens. You have the first floor of the house, with access to laundry. The space is simple, accessible, comfortable & an easy walking distance to Rudd's Pub, Sister Kenny's Museum & the Nobby Store. We’re happy to chat or leave you in peace. You choose.

The space
This is a split level and while we have plans to build verandas, we currently enter through the first floor. This means we walk through your sitting area. Noise is minimal on the ground floor, but you might hear some movement on the upper floors. Most of our daily activities occur on the mid level which is adjacent to your floor (not over). You have access to an outdoor sitting area and bbq if you wish to use it (we charge a cleaning fee if you’re untidy). We have a strict no smoking policy-I'm allergic and asthmatic. We have aircon and a fireplace on the mid level, however, the 1st floor is the coolest in the summer and gets a lovely cross breeze. We have electric blankets for the beds in the winter. Breakfast options are plentiful, cereal, toast, seasonal fruit, tea, coffee, assorted mini quiches or sandwiches. We we have a cafe so items will vary. If you are a long term guest we will take orders. A packed lunch can also be pre arranged for an additional fee, as can dinner. A lasagne and salad, pulled pork sandwich or hearty soup is easy to warm up in the microwave if you’re too stuffed to go out. We can have these waiting in the refrigerator for you after a long day. Check with us for menu options.

Guest access
If we are not home the first floor is set up as a studio, private bathroom, toilet and sitting area with partitioned beds. The queen bed is the most private, but shares the space with the double bed. This is a family style hotel room open feel.
When we are home guests are welcome to visit by our fire, peruse our extensive library, join us at the breakfast table, partake in bbq’s, feed the chickens, wander the backyard, pet the cats, greet the dog and use the clothesline. We are world travellers and happy to visit if time allows. We also have busy lives and understand the need for privacy. Indicate your wishes if you would like to be left alone. If you have laundry we will instruct you how to correctly use our washer while we are here, understanding that we are on strict water restrictions. Only the far upstairs is entirely off limits when we are home. At night for guests absolute privacy we will lock off the midlevel floor. We keep regular hours and rarely are up past 9pm on school nights. There is a T.V. and DVD player in the guest sitting room.

Other things to note
We have an 8 year old who is interested in all things. Expect some questions and some cheerful assistance from your youngest host.

Enjoy travel, music, art, literature and nature. Our family loves a good walk with our dog or a quiet sit on the veranda with a coffee. We enjoy a good chat and a nice glass of wine if time allows. We like gardening and working in the shed. If we don't answer, have patience, we sometimes don't hear the phone!
