Your stay in a cool, but cosy renovated 1950s worker’s cottage will provide the perfect base for exploring Brisbane: the city, the river, and the trendy precincts of Newstead, New Farm, Teneriffe, James Street and Fortitude Valley. With a leafy outlook in the heart of Brisbane, you’ll be nestled in a small pocket surrounded by vegetation and a large backyard. Enjoy the house art collection, including notable Indigenous works and local and international artists.

Relax with an afternoon drink and alfresco meals on the spacious front deck watching the city lights glimmer. Explore the vast selection of excellent cafes, restaurants and bars in Brisbane’s best neighbourhood (Newstead, New Farm, Fortitude Valley)– world class seafood, contemporary Australian dining, Italian and Greek kitchens, a Chocolatier, Japanese Poke bowls, Betty’s Burgers, Campos and Kivahan speciality coffee, and tuck into cult-status cabbage pancakes at "Sourced Grocer" as well as discover a handful of providores selling the best of local fare – just to list a few.

Fast access to Brisbane city and cultural precincts with excellent transport by bus, train or ferry. Relax in any of the nearby parks, enjoy the playgrounds or take a beautiful stroll along the picturesque river-walk.

The iconic Gasworks precinct (250m) will spoil you for choice - a gourmet food market, butcher, bakery, yoghurt bar, boutiques and gift stores as well as Woolworths supermarket, a dry cleaners and newsagent.

A relaxed 10min walk to the fashionable James Street district where more eateries and boutique-stores abound. The trendy areas of Newstead, New Farm & Teneriffe are at your doorstep with a huge selection of bars, restaurants, movie cinemas as well as beauty and hair salons on offer.

[Our neighbourhood was ranked by Lonely Planet as one of Australia’s three coolest suburbs and we think it's pretty great!!]
