About this listing

Comfortable open plan space underneath old Queenslander. We have a spare 33 sq metres to offer fellow travelers that makes a great base to explore inner Brisbane. After a hard day exploring you are welcome to chill in our rainforest inspired garden.

The space

Our space has own street access, is airconditioned, has a double size bed, shower, toilet, fridge, microwave, toaster, tea/coffee facilities, fan, WiFi, comfy lounge and study desk (but No TV). On street parking permit can be arranged.

What have other guests enjoyed about our place? Its private access, our garden, Daves hand man furniture, his artwork, the friendly dogs and the location.

We are walking distance to just about everything Inner Brisbane has to offer. Kangaroo Point Cliffs are few 100 metres away; we are walking distance to the city; the art galleries at southbank and the night life in the valley.

The space is underneath the main house with its own access from the street, so you are free to come and go as you please, but we are always happy to welcome you up to join us on our back deck for a chat.

The space has a low ceiling so people over six foot two or two metres tall might find it uncomfortable. Also being an older Queenslander the floor above is wooden so you might hear us moving about upstairs.

We do have high speed Wi Fi plus a collection of books on travel and other stuff you might find interesting but we are in a TV dead zone (very poor reception) so we have no TV. If your really hanging out for that special program on the box you might be disappointed.

We also have two very friendly Huskies so if you do wish to explore our backyard you will have your own personal guide.

Guest access

The space has its own street access and you are also most welcome to enjoy our back yard after a days sight seeing. We have tried to create a small private oasis of green in the inner city and hope you will have time to enjoy it.

Interaction with guests

One of us will arrange to be home when you check in to hand you the keys and show you around. After that feel free to come and go as you please as you have your own private access. We are home most nights and happy to answer any questions you might have. We also have two very friendly Huskies who enjoy our guests company.

Other things to note

Before when you are making a booking could you tell us when you expect to arrive? We are flexible, but do have to work in around our work day schedule and can not accommodate everybody.

Best times for us is between 6:00 and 7:30 am; around 12:30 (Dave can get home during his lunch time, most times) or after work from 5:00 pm. We will not accept bookings with a check in after 8:00 pm. We try not to have back to back bookings so leaving is generally no problems.

Beautiful place, people and dogs! The entire experience was awesome from pre-trip to checking out. We were going to spend our entire trip at Dave and Brett's but unfortunately it was booked. We wanted to stay there since we first saw the room on the website. We decided to stay there for half our trip and loved it! Definitely recommend to anyone who is coming to Brisbane! xxx

David and Brett's place is amazing! The room is spacious and has everything you need to enjoy your stay! They provide plenty of brochures and just lovely to chat with! My favorite part was being able to walk to the free ferry and enjoy the beautiful views of Brisbane (including their wonderful backyard). I highly recommend staying here!

Brett and Dave were exceptionally gracious and wonderful hosts! From the moment we arrived at their home, Brett was very friendly and extremely helpful in giving us suggestions on places to visit in Brisbane and how best to get to them. The room was very spacious (for 2) and very beautifully-decorated with Dave's hand-made artwork. We also had the opportunity to have dinner with Brett & Dave and we really cannot express how welcomed we felt during this trip. The location really is quite fantastic! Only a 10-15 (if you walk really leisurely) minute walk to the nearest ferry terminal and you can hop on the free City Hopper to connect you to the city. Kangaroo Point cliffs is such a beautiful place and the views from the cafe is simply wonderful! We didn't really have any issues with noise. While the house is close to the main road, we couldn't hear much of it at night, and hearing Brett and Dave moving upstairs was quite minimal. Their canine companions, Layka and Ada, were such a joy! So friendly and warm! Their garden is also very beautiful and an ideal spot for relaxing. We most definitely recommend staying with them if you're in Brisbane.

Wonderful hosts, the property has easy access to the river/ferries/city/South Bank. It's a large apartment with comfortable bed and small but adequate kitchen/bathroom. Our only negative was the noise from the main road nearby. Thanks for a lovely stay.

I had a most enjoyable 2 days with Dave & Brett. Their place is lovely, secure, private and a perfect location to explore Brisbane.

Hi, we are a same sex couple, into motorbikes and travel. Love meeting fellow travellers, favourite places we have visited with our bikes includes Iceland, Turkey, Mongolia, Japan, Montenegro. Our motto in life is "Life is too short for instant coffee" and believe that everybody has a story to tell.

We have been with airbnb since Nov 2013 and so far it has been a great experience as we are really enjoying meeting new people and sharing their experiences.

We enjoy the interaction with people the most, it might sound like a cliche, but we like to treat our guests as friends we have just met. Really everybody has a story and if you have time we would love to have a coffee or a beer to learn about yours.
