PLEEEASE don't apply through Stayz until you have read the following.
- does your enquiry meet our terms for this site?
- are you seeking a discount?
- is the calendar marked full?
WHY ARE WE ASKING YOU DON'T APPLY?
Stayz have a minimum conversion requirement of owners or they will delist us. We aren't meeting that quota because we are the only inner city holiday homes that are spacious enough for large groups, so we get every enquiry - even when our calendar is full. Even when you just message us with a question, it counts as an enquiry. Often people apply several times across a few of our homes, so in part, our success is a problem.
If your stay is longer and / or you have a large group and would like to request a discount, we don't discount through Stayz, because their 10% commission rates need to be covered.
This is not to say we don't welcome every enquiry, we do want to hear from you, we may be able to juggle our bookings to find room for you? We often relax our 7 night minimum, so it is always worth asking, just please don't ask through here until we can green light you as a Stayz booking.
We are easy to find, happy to talk 7 days, or email 24hours.
KANGAROO POINT AREA
CITY BOUND, RIVER FERRIES and RIVER WALKS
Short walk down Lambert St takes you via walkway to Dockside. This is a complex of high rise apartments, which houses some shops an Asian restaurant and cafe. The board walk along the river is extremely popular. There is a free cross river ferry service, leaving every 30 mins to take you to the city centre. Or you can also board Brisbane's famous City Cat ferry service that runs from Hamilton on the north side to University of Queensland.
You can follow it right around to the Kangaroo Point Cliffs, where a company called River Life, offers kayaking (night and day), abseiling, rock climbing as well as offering Aboriginal cultural experiences.
Brisbane's sporting headquarters for Australian Rules Football Lions team and Australian and Queensland cricket. The light posts can be seen from the side deck, and it is within 15min walk.
RESTAURANTS AND CAFES
A short stroll to numerous eateries, and the quality of food on offer is diverse and high quality. The Sweet Mandarin offers Asian fare from Thai to Chinese and will deliver, the Indian specialists Raj's Palace receives mixed reviews, but we loved the food they delivered. Sushi, Subway and Spoons cafe are all in walking distance as well.
The famous Story Bridge Hotel is a pleasant 10-15 mins stroll and has multiple eating options and is one of Brisbane's most famous watering holes. The Shaftson Hotel is under 10mins walk and is a pleasant surprise once inside. There is a refurbished beer garden, and several inviting indoor spaces to enjoy a drink or meal. The food is above average for "pub grub" and there are specials each night EG 2 for one meals on Thursdays.
BRISBANE CITY CYCLE
