The SpaceThe 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. Guest AccessThe 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 couches, and a TV and DVD player if you decide to have a quiet night in. 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 GuestsI'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. The NeighborhoodThe James St precinct is a stylish neighbourhood packed with designer stores, quality restaurants, and good cafes. Some of the best coffee in Brisbane is a short walk away! The apartment is also close to Brisbane entertainment precinct of Fortitude Valley, but outside of the amplified music exemption zone so club noise is not an issue. All Valley venues such as Family, The Met, Cloudland, Sixes and Sevens, Number 29, and The Beat are a 5-10 minute walk.
The Brunswick Central shops are close by, and IGA supermarket is a few streets away, with ALDI, Coles and Woolworths a little further.
*Note: please do your own street view search - the view showing is quite wrong, a few streets away. Getting AroundGetting around is easy in the Valley.
The buses on Brunswick St, about 3 minutes' walk from the apartment, go to the city and Southbank, where you can transfer to every bus line that services Brisbane. The Glider bus on Ann St is a 24/7 service going from Teneriffe to West End, and the nearest stop is 5-10 minutes' walk.
Fortitude Valley train station has all Brisbane train lines transiting through it, including the train from the airport, and is about 10-15 minutes' walk.
If you like to walk, there are plenty of places you can get to in under an hour.
CBD - 25-30 minutes
Southbank - 40 minutes
New Farm Park - 20 minutes
Judith Wright Centre - 5 minutes
Riverwalk - 10 minutes
Powerhouse - 25 minutes Other Things to NoteThere 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.
