“Loved our stay at Narelle and Rogers home. Fantastic location and a great opportunity for us to explore our own city by the Brisbane River.”
Narelle's reviewsAs a host (9)
“We had a fantastic stay at Narelle and Roger's home in New Farm. The location is perfect for walks, easy bus connection into the city and lots of places to eat nearby. Narelle responded quickly and made it super easy to arrange our stay. The whole family were generous in making sure we had everything we needed. Would highly recommend staying here and would do so again if the chance arises.”
“We thoroughly enjoyed our points swap in the top front flat of Narelle and Rogers huge home. Even though we are used to whole of property swaps this suited our purposes well. The bed was comfortable and the kitchenette adequate for our needs. We used the Weber BBQ on the top deck which was useful for the couple of dinners we prepared during our stay. The deck also very good for just hanging out and relaxing with a book and glass of red. Lots of restaurants and cafes close by so ate out mostly. New Farm is a fantastic location, and we were able to walk into the city centre and Southbank easily. We also used the free city hopper ferry, just at the end of the road. A frequent leaving bus was just outside (15 mins to city centre - very handy). Communication with Narelle was very good, and all went smoothly. Would highly recommend a stay at Narelle and Rogers”
“Narelle and Roger's house is a real find. A great location, if you don't know Brisbane, New Farm is a fantastic part of the city. There are great restaurants nearby and it is a short walk to the river, the ferry stop and all the great bars along the boardwalk. We joined the local gym during our stay and had a car to drive around town. What more could you ask for. Would wholly recommend. ”
“Narelle & Roger are seasoned, generous and overall excellent hosts. Communication is always friendly, prompt and clear. The home itself is in a great location, within walking distance to shops, restaurants, cinemas, park, free ferry to city and great views of the river. We needed nothing and it was like being home with a well-equipped & stocked cook's kitchen, aircon in living & bedrooms, laundry facilities and great activities for kids (books & board games). We stayed in for a few days as it was too hot to go out & everyone was entertained including the little ones. We felt so welcomed in Narelle & Roger's home and made our Brisbane holiday very special.”
“Narelle & Roger were very helpful, caring, accommodating & kind hosts. The place was within easy walking distance to public transport (bus & ferry), local shopping centre. The local market and entertainment centre was an enjoyable stroll. The large (divided) 2 storeyed house had everything a very well equipped home has, especially the kitchen, and was decorated in quaint traditional Queenslander style. We enjoyed having breakfast upstairs on the deck with the crows & kukaburras and morning sunshine (early July), because downstairs was a bit too cold for us in the mornings. We highly recommend our host's to anyone who wants to stay in Brisbane. Stephen & Anita ”
“Really good exchange, and a top place to stay if you are visiting Brisbane. Narelle and Roger are 5 star hosts, very experienced and well organised. The house is huge (we only stayed in part of it) and comfortable. Near the river with free ferry into town, a nice little shopping area easy walking distance. Thumbs up.”
“I have enjoyed very much my stay at Narelle and Roger's New Farm house in Brisbane. Huge house though, clean and very well organized. We had such a good communication before our swap and documented in a file in detail where to go what to do. Shopping was very close, around 7 min walking distance as well as the free river boat taxi, bus station just in front of the house. Excellent location. Thank you so much for the warm welcome, even with Swiss chocolate and a bottle of excellent wine. It was like a coming home.”
