We are three housemates, living in a large, two storey house, situated high upon a hill, with spare rooms that we host out to AirBnB to help supplement our rent.
Pets are welcome, as we have two adorable Border Collie puppies ourselves. We are students - but we are the good type who (pretend) that we are studying all the time, and therefore don't party much or come stumbling home drunk late at night, banging on the door because we lost our keys... But it's okay if you do.
The house has solid wooden flooring throughout, and high-high ceilings. You would be sharing the upstairs bathroom with two other bedrooms, which is kept clean daily. It has a large shower and a spa bath to use.
Your room has a double bed in it, and therefore the room can be shared by a couple. It's one of our smaller rooms in the house, and for this reason doesn't have a wardrobe to take up floor space. However, it doesn't feel small, because, the ceilings are high, and the large french doors let in a flood of light once opened. Once opened, another meter and a half of balcony space is added in front of the doors, giving the feeling of lots of room. The view from the balcony extends over the surrounding suburbs and out to Cunningham's Gap. The breeze that comes through is very welcoming.
The property is fully fenced, so if you also have a well behaved dog, they can chill in our grass back yard with our dogs, and are welcome inside, as we have mainly hard flooring throughout the house. Guest AccessYou have access to our kitchen, bathroom, balcony, backyard, single car garage (small car), and washing machine.
Our kitchen is modern, with a dishwasher, induction stove top, coffee machine, combination microwave, breadmaker, and is built with stone benches.
Guests are welcome to a few basic things in our kitchen, including milk, tea, coffee, cereal, and bread. If you would like anything else, we can direct you to the nearest shops, and show you to your cupboard space in the kitchen.
Our upstairs bathroom is spacious, kept clean, and is with a spa bath included.
Our back yard is a fully fenced, with grass: pet friendly (we love dogs - we will even give you a discount if you bring your beloved dog with you to play with our puppies.) Interaction with GuestsWe are pretty flexible with how much you want to interact with us. We tend to think we are nice enough people to chat to if you want to!
We can also organise to cook you breakfast and dinner for an extra negotiated price, that's fair to cover costs, if you'd like to leave the hassle up to us!
Languages spoken in the household include German and French. We are pretty fluent in Australian too.
Also, we have cars, so we are happy to drop you off somewhere if it's on the way to wherever we are going, or even if you just want a lift down the road to Taringa Train Station. The NeighborhoodThe neighbourhood is close to everything, while still being quiet and safe. It's close to the city (10 minute drive), to the university (4 minute drive), and to shops. Getting AroundIf you are coming in by train, you need to get off at Taringa Train Station. Please organise with us in advance, and we should be able to come and pick you up by car, otherwise, it's a 20 minutes walk if you don't have too much to carry!
There is also a bus stop near our house, which services buses that come directly from the Brisbane CBD or university. It takes 30 minutes to get to the city, and 14 minutes to the university.
Driving is even quicker; if you have a car, the university is 4 minutes away, and the city is 10 - 15 minutes away.
The house is close to Carmody Rd, which takes you directly to the university, and we are also a five minute walk to the Gailey Five Ways shops, including a cafe, convenience shop, ATM, fruit shop, butcher, cake shop, florist, and chemist.
Regarding transport, the university is a 25 minute walk away, while there is alternatively a bus stop just round the corner with buses running every 10 minutes to the city or uni. The bus takes 14 min to uni, including the walking time to the bus stop.
