“Thank you Roger and Leonie for a wonderful stay, you both made us feel very welcome. Your house is exactly how you described it, warm and welcoming and the beds were so comfy. We were able to walk to all amenities and of course, to the university for our 2 week uni residency. We will definitely be back in September for our next residency. Once again thank-you for your hospitality. Olivia ”

Our house is centrally located in a quiet and safe leafy street situated on the fringe of Queen and Limestone Parks including the beautiful Nerima Japanese Gardens with lovely cascading waterfalls. We are very close to the city centre. There is a wonderful open outdoor wildlife park and petting zoo hosting many of our native animals including Dingoes, Kangaroos and Bilbies just to name a few, there is also a lovely open air Wedding Bush Chapel and cafe. Limestone Park has fantastic bike and walkways and exercise equipment scattered along the walking tracks, all park amenities are free. Limestone park also offers hot air ballooning on the weekends. We are very close to major shopping malls, restaurants, cafes, takeaways, nightlife, medical facilities, major hospitals, university, art museums, and library. No we don't have a pool to maintain but we are very close to swimming pools,water parks and gymnasiums for both kids and adults alike.
Our home is character filled and charming, clean and cozy, warm and welcoming. There are four large bedrooms all freshly refurbished. We can step out into a large private balcony surrounded by 100 year old trees and see and hear the chirping of many kinds of birds. Our home provides everything that is needed for a relaxing stay including luxury bed linens and towels,an assortment of luxury pillows with fresh mattress and pillow protectors.

Ipswich, the city of Churches, is home to over 6000 historical sites and 500 parks and gardens. In August/September Ipswich and surrounding areas host the yearly Jacaranda Festivals for garden enthusiasts and the world renown Railway Workshops Museum and Steam Train rides for train enthusiasts. We also have 2 major universities, one of which I attend, so could offer our home for students who which to stay for university residencies).
We are less than 1 hour to all major tourist attractions (remember Australia is a vast country, so an hour is quite a short distance) and 25 minutes to Brisbane, Queenslands capital city. Brisbane city offers many attractions including Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, South Bank Parklands, 4x brewery, major art galleries, museums and concert facilities. The beautiful Sunshine coast with Moreton and Fraser Islands (to name just two) have great fishing and snorkeling, and Steve Irwin's famous Australia Zoo to the North. The Gold Coast/Surfers Paradise, including Dreamworld, Movieworld, and Wet and Wild amusement Parks and Lamington National Park for bushwalking, Mount Tamborine for Art lovers, and the oddly shaped Glasshouse mountains to the South. To the West, the Granite Belt, a region which is Queensland primary wine-producing region, host a number of Wineries, Breweries and Outback Museums and authentic outback pubs. All this with miles and miles of sugar cane fields and white sandy beaches, there is more to do and see in this region than anyone could see in one holiday. Also, within an hours drive, the magnificent mountain ranges known as the 'Scenic Rim' with magnificent views into the valleys below, all serviced by major motorways and highways. Ipswich, is in fact right in the hub to so many more attractions.
Public transport is close to our door just around the corner on the next street and of course a number of reliable taxi services. There is also rail and bus services to all tourist attractions including the Gold and Sunshine coasts and to other areas driving out west.
