The SpaceA warm welcome to Chez Wilde.
If you are travelling as a family or in a large group, you are looking to relocate to Brisbane, you commute and need a home away from home, or even looking for a great place to host a function and need some rooms to go with that, read on..
Chez Wilde provides you with the use of the entire ground floor area of this modern, luxury two story home.
You have 2 bedrooms with queen size beds and large robes, with plenty of hanging and drawer space.
You can use the study as a third bedroom with a very comfortable queen size sofa bed, use it for work, or grab a book from the extensive library in the study and pass your time reading.
We can comfortably sleep 6 guests, and if you have children, we can always help you make up beds on the lounges in your living area (or pitch a tent for them to sleep under the stars?).
Fresh bedding and towels are supplied for each guest, which you may launder at Chez Wilde for extended stays. A washing machine, dryer, an iron and ironing mat are all available for your use.
You have your own kitchen, equipped with an espresso coffee machine, tea facilities, a convection oven, a microwave, toaster, two burner stove and a fridge. All of the cookware and tableware is top quality. Tea and coffee (the good stuff!) are with our compliments.
Why not make the most of our fantastic climate and do the cooking on your deck, where you will find a 3 burner BBQ, with hotplates, grill, an insulated hood and rotisserie for roasting, and a side burner for pots, pans and woks.
Your indoor lounge and entertainment area is equipped with a 46" flat screen TV, a BlueRay DVD player, Apple TV, PS3 and an Airplay enabled sound system, as well as a huge range of movies to watch, books to read, games to play and an eclectic music collection to listen to.
Fancy a game of snooker or 8 ball? An 8'x4' billiard table is also provided, though please ensure children only play supervised by an adult as it is a beautiful slate topped table.
As a guest, you will have unlimited high speed Wi-Fi access to stay in touch with work or your family and friends.
Your bathroom has a shower, bath, basin and toilet, with your basic toiletries supplied. A hair dryer & hair straightener are also provided.
Your indoor living space opens up to your alfresco covered deck area where you can enjoy our wonderful climate and the breezes from Moreton Bay (just a 3 minute stroll from your front door).
The Tuscan table has seating for 6 and is a great place to have a drink or your evening meal after your long day of work or play.
And if the weather is too inclement to dine outside, the lounge room coffee table can be converted to a 6 place dining table.
If you are thinking about having guests over, we have plenty of additional tables and chairs that can be made available to you.
A fully fenced yard makes Chez Wilde pet friendly and there's plenty of manicured lawn area for the kids to play securely.
There are a lot of incidentals that you will find in your rooms that you may use or borrow, such as umbrellas, a picnic hamper and blanket for a day at the park or the beach, an esky (chilly bin for New Zealanders), food and wine touring guides, brochures for local attraction, bocce balls for a game on the lawn, emergency toiletries, a car cleaning kit. Your front lawn converts into a full size doubles badminton court, and there is a basketball hoop and backboard if you care for some more physical R&R during your stay. We also have 2 adult and 3 children's bicycles for hire for you to explore Wynnum and its surrounds. Need a Portacot or a child seat or booster for your hire car but don't want want to bring one from home, no problems, you can borrow ours (sorry but we don't have a baby capsule though). Please help yourself to the seasonal herbs, fruit and vegetables planted in your garden.
You will find many other items such as these all designed to make your stay as pleasurable as possible. Guest AccessAs described in "The Space", Chez Wilde's guests have sole use of the 2 bedrooms, the study, the lounge and games area, a bathroom, kitchen and laundry, the deck, gardens and lawns, and everything available in these areas.
The garage, workshop and utilities areas on the ground floor are secured for use by your host.
Out of necessity we share the front door and entrance hall.
The upstairs apartment is not secured from yours, though it is separately zoned on the alarm system and armed when not occupied. Interaction with GuestsMy name is Alan, and I enjoy hosting guests and meeting new people from all corners of the globe.
If you would like to join me for a home made craft beer and enjoy the views from my deck upstairs, or you would like to be left in peace and privacy, you just need to let me know.
We do share the entrance door to the home so it is inevitable that we will at least bump into each other during your stay. The NeighborhoodWynnum is the closest Bayside Suburb to the City of Brisbane, and with a metro train station that takes you into the heart of the city located a short 5 minute walk away, a daily commute or just a visit to our River City couldn't be easier.
Head in the other direction and within a 3 minute walk you have reached the foreshore of Moreton Bay, a wonderful place to take a stroll, ride a bike, have a meal or just enjoy the view across to the Bay Islands.
Whilst Chez Wilde doesn't offer a swimming pool, a short stroll along the esplanade brings you to the Wynnum public saltwater pool and water park, that all kids, big and small, will enjoy.
Brisbane's domestic and international airports are an easy 18 minute freeway drive from Chez Wilde.
Need a drink? The Waterloo Hotel is only a 5 minute walk away across the Wynnum Creek footbridge.
A further 4 minute walk takes you into the heart of the Wynnum CBD, an old style commercial and retail centre where most of your day to day shopping needs can be met.
Head north on the foreshore and you come to the Wynnum Mangrove Boardwalk, where you can view the tidal sea life of a mangrove forest whilst keeping your feet dry. Getting AroundThe Cleveland train line can be accessed at the top of Chez Wilde's street. It runs from the suburb of Cleveland, another spectacular Bayside Suburb worthy of a visit and where ferries can connect you to the fascinating Bay Islands. The other end of the line is the City of Brisbane.
From here you make a connection to the Airtrain, which services the domestic and international terminals. Train connections can also be made to the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast from this line.
Once in the City of Brisbane you can also jump on a RiverCat Ferry , a fabulous day trip and a great way to see our River City.
Adjacent to the Wynnum Train Station is a Bus Stop that services 5 different routes radiating out from Wynnum.

If pedal power is your thing and you would like to explore the area by bike we have some family friendly bike paths in and around Wynnum and Chez Wilde has 5 well maintained bikes (2 adult and 3 children's bikes) that can be hired for a nominal fee. Other Things to NoteChez Wilde's outdoor and indoor living spaces are a great venue to host a party. We have spares of everything, so hosting a group of up to 25 with little notice is too easy.
With a bit of planning, which I can assist with, we can cater for any sort of function with up to 60 guests and arrange covered marquees on the lawn, additional tables, chairs, table settings, catering, lighting, PA system, DJ, music, in fact anything that you may need.
A function planning fee and cleaning fee will be charged for function bookings.
Chez Wilde also provides off street parking if you are on a driving holiday. Additionally, if you are towing a trailer, camper van, caravan or boat up to 18' you can park it in your secured floodlit yard area.
