Live the life on the Brisbane River!!!!, South Bank, Galleries and the City are minutes walk from your West End home.

Unique private room in a villa on the Brisbane River.

1 minute to the famous West End markets, walk to the Cultural Precinct at South Bank. Watch the rowers from the terrace. Laze around the heated pool after a work out in the on-site gym.
The choice is yours.

The space

Your bit of West End is located in a riverside villa in a security building. The bedroom is a double room with Queen bed. Very quiet.

There is a sitting room next to your bedroom with a TV for your use. It has an inner-sprung mattress sofa bed with a gel foam mattress, which can accommodate 2 more guests, for an additional fee. Please enquire if you require this room.

Your room has a queen bed, exclusive use of the main bathroom with a large spa bath and shower and ample cupboard space in the bedroom.

Downstairs is the open plan kitchen, dining and living.

Fully equipped kitchen, gas cooktop, electric oven, etc with your own refrigerator space for all the fresh produce that you'll buy at the West End markets. Outside terrace, overlooking the river, with BBQ, lounge seating and outdoor table. Please don't mind if you come home from your day of sightseeing and getting to know, as we affectionately call Brisbane.... "BrisVegas", if you find me outside in the late summer evenings sipping a G&T.

You have full access to the amenities, including use of the heated outdoor pool overlooking the river, the gymnasium and all amenities.

Guest access

I will meet you at the front door and provide keys and show you around.
You have access to all areas of the villa - kitchen, living, laundry and of course, your private bathroom with spa bath.

Interaction with guests

I am generally here with the 4.5kg fluffy white 'designer dog'. He is my guard dog.. Ha ha! But yes! In his nine years on this earth I can count on one hand how much he's given so much as a 'woof'. He is made of wool, not hair so does not affect anyone with allergies. Even Barrack Obama has one of these non-allergenic dogs. Everyone who meets Bobby falls instantly in love with him. He really is too cute and he certainly knows it!

Always available for tips, on how to get around, what to see, etc. There are transport timetables and Brisbane attractions in the bedside table in your room.

Other things to note

I'm fairly quiet, however if I'm playing Bob Dylan, my 22 year old daughter, who now resides in Sydney, says.... Mum "turn it down!!!!!"

The Westest of West Ends is a great inner City bolt hole with an eclectic environment.

The city is 1.2 km away - an easy walk along the river. Or catch a bus or City Cat along the river. Even better, the local government has pushbike stations for you to hire a bike for as long as you desire and drop it off at the next station, or keep it for a day of exploring.
South Bank and the Cultural Precinct with galleries, theatres and tropical parklands are even closer.
The convention centre, located at South Bank, is in walk in distance.

This was a great stay for my purpose in Brisbane. The premises was a delightful riverside walk away from all the places I wanted to be. The accommodation was as described with a good-sized bedroom and a large bathroom. All was beautifully clean and comfortable. Melita is a fabulous host who offers very open access to her home. She is very generous with her time and local knowledge and was even willing to act as personal tour operator to allow me to visit places a bit further afield. She was very accommodating and understanding of my need to be flexible with the timing of my stay, and even had a meal ready for me when my arrival was unexpectedly delayed until the evening. Melita loves meeting people and along with her little concierge, Bobby, will go out of her way to ensure you get as much as possible out of your Brisbane stay.

It was my best AirBnB experience. Melita's place is exactly the same as described on the listing. Everything was smooth, starting from communication to check out. Melita was such a kind person...she cooked dinner for me when I reached after a 27-hour journey. On the last day, she also took me out on city sightseeing and eventually dropping off at the airport. It was such a great stay!

Swasti, please do not give me credit where credit is not due... You were here for such a short time and had never been in Oz. Felt it my duty to give you a taste of BrisVegas! Be assured that in the Tests if Australia is not playing I will surely be 'rooting' for the Sub-Continent! Come back soon. I'll get good tickets for India V Australia at the Gabba. Stay warm in our lovely Southern State.

Thanks Melita for sharing your home, Bobs, helmet, and Masterchef with us, and yes we so enjoyed all your yummy meals. An excellent location right on the riverfront with large shared area, close to everywhere. Step off the balcony straight onto the River Walk, or 2 mins away from several cycle stations. West End markets are just at the end of the street and a must do on Saturday morning.

The place, which is as close to the Brisbane River as possible, is full of charm, in addition to being very quiet, comfortable and close to all commodities. Besides, being thoughtfully hosted is not the least charm of this place near the river.

Melita is a good host and makes you feel welcome in her home (especially Bobby her dog). The apartment complex has a heated pool and functional gym. The apartment location is great and right by the river with excellent access to local shops (Coles and Aldi within a 10 minute easy walk), a Saturday market, plenty of restaurants on Boundary St and public transport. Recommended.

Onur, it was pleasure having you stay. The gym has not been used since you left. Bobby keeps asking where you are and wondering when his next meal of kangaroo meat will be served....? Not in my lifetime, hahaha.

Melita's place is right on the river with a large terrace to relax on overlooking the river and the walking & bike path. Nice mostly quiet bedroom & own bathroom with spa. West end is great lots of cafes and shops and Melita is 2 minutes walk from a great Saturday market. She is a kind & thoughtful host and dog bobby is a darling.

Jessica, Sorry about the cleaning people! When I get a 'bee in my bonnet' about people letting me down... I do express my opinion by asking them not to come again! I do hope that I cleaned your bathroom properly when I climbed into the bath to clean! It's a bugger of a bath to clean.... I have new cleaners and have now bought a turbo brush for getting into the corners! It's great fun and, of course, I only use white vinegar and sometimes some bi-carb! Thanks for teaching me how to use vegan alternatives in cooking. I'm getting there! My vegan muffins that I made last night were a disaster, but.....perseverance. Bobs and I loved having you stay. The 'ambassador extraordinaire' sends his paw kisses.

We had such a great time with Melita and Bobby! Melita showed great hospitality, always made sure we felt at home and had everything we needed. Bobs, our new buddy, we miss him already! This is a lovely and quiet place, with a nice walk along the river to the city.
