About our home

Our home is a medium sized, recently painted and renovated, high-set Brisbane cottage, with open plan dining/living area and two available double bedrooms. It is comfortable, cool and airy with air-conditioned lounge and master bedroom. The backyard is landscaped and designed for sitting and enjoying an afternoon cuppa in the shade. And, for the environmentally conscious, the house has water tanks and solar power; although connected to the grid to ensure constant supply. There are TVs in both the lounge room and the master bedroom, equipped with DVD players, internet and Netflix.

The property is located in the quiet, leafy, inner-city suburb of Stafford; 15 minutes from Brisbane's CBD and the airport; 5 minutes from the Stafford City shopping mall and the Hoyts movie theatre; and a 2 minute walk to coffee shops, medical centre and pharmacy. The neighbourhood is residential and the residents are quiet and friendly - mostly professionals and retirees. Churches (Catholic, Anglican and Uniting Church), shops, restaurants, parks and bus stops are all within an easy 5 to 10 minute walk from the house with very few hills.

Brisbane city is one of the most livable cities in the world, with a sub tropical climate, expansive blue skies, many park lands, extensive bike tracks, and the wonderful Brisbane River with its City Cat ferry services. Visitors can spend the day shopping in the CBD and cross the river to South Bank park lands for a stroll along the River and have dinner at one of the many bars and restaurants that line the water's edge. The CBD or South Bank can be easily reached via two bus services that run directly from Stafford from two locations within 5 minutes of the house. Trains run from Brisbane to the Gold Coast, the airport, and North Queensland for visitors who want to widen their scope beyond the River City.

The house, neighourhood and city are ideal for a couple who want to simply kick back and enjoy life in a new environment. Public transport is readily available and there are two bicycles at the house so visitors can make use of the bike tracks in the area.

Where is it?


Buzzy restaurants
Stafford City, a shopping mall within 10 minutes walk boasts a tavern style bar and several cafe style restaurants, which offer cheap meals and a good selection of beers and wine. The Verrano and the Jerky Nuts Cafe and Bar over the hill from the house are licenced casual dining establishments that offer relatively good informal venues for breakfast, lunch and dinner. But the Brisbane CBD is only a 15 minute bus ride away. Brisbane is a river city with many bars and restaurants lining the river side.
Cool bars
A new trend in Brisbane are dual purpose coffee shops/bars and you will find many of these arpund the neighbouring suburbs.
Cozy cafés
The coffee culture is big in Brisbane and Stafford has many from which to choose - all within a 5 minute walk of home. Our favourite is Pod Espreso, which has great coffee and a healthy menu with lots of alternatives for allergy sufferers. Near by you can find Crema and Creme, which offers casual outdoor dining and good coffee.
Retail therapy
Easily accessible public transport affords quick trips to some of the biggest shopping malls on the north side of Brisbane, most notably Westfields Chermside Shopping Centre.
Bit of culture
The Brisbane cultural precinct at Southbank can be reached via a bus that leaves from down the road. Southbank has theatres where you can catch all the best live shows and musicals. The museum and art gallery are also located across the street, and the famous GOMA (Gallery of Modern Art) is just a short stroll along the river. Visitors to Southbank can watch a show and dine at one of the many restaurants along the river.
Walks in the park
Brisbane is a very green city with extensive parklands and bike tracks. Visitors can stroll for miles along creeks or the River in green belts that cross the city following the waterways.
Spot of exercise
Lots of park lanfds for walking, or cycling tracks and near by gyms, which have casual membership
Day tripping
Both the famous Gold Coast and the lesser known Sunshine Coast (to the north of Brisbane) are within an easy 1 hour drive. But Brisbane also has a western rural hinterland boasting numerous quaint villages and towns with rustic pubs and cafes.
