About Jennifer Rylance
We have been providing accommodation of different styles since 2004. We enjoy the holiday homes business best as we find our guests are usually celebrating something special and they look after the homes as their own. Carrington Apartments offers 3 different styles of art deco decor. Top level is decorated in the black/red/white bolder combinations and the animal influences of the time. The middle level features the oyster / grey white scheme with pops of lime and torquoise and creates more of a casual holiday theme. The lowest level is the more sophisticated beige hues with navy and yellow accents. All the great features of a 1930s building including oversized bedrooms, incredible insulation from the double brick construction, high ceilings and special features have been retained and we have added (or will be adding shortly), the comforts of modern living. There are flow through breezes and views on all levels and from most directions. After investing in property for 28 years, we now only purchase homes we love ourselves. As an investment, they may not stack up as well as multiple cheaper homes, but we have reached the stage where the enjoyment the property brings us, is now equally important as its investment potential.

Why Jennifer Rylance chose Fortitude Valley
REVIEWS This magnificently furnished property had all the creature comforts of home and many I’d only dreamed of. From the selection of fine teas, to the refreshing plunge pool and the ‘cloudlike’ bedding, I was wooed all weekend by this conveniently located CBD ‘gem’. The host, Jenny, was fantastic and went out of her way to accomodate my 17 month old son and I whilst attending a family wedding. I highly recommend Carrington Manor. I will definitely be back soon. Sarah, October 2017 ★★★★★ Jennifer is very committed to a positive experience. Fantastic communication, very clean and current facilities in a great location. Definitely recommend! Jonathan, August 2017 ★★★★★ What a beautiful and clean property! This property worked great for my lab group, who was attending Brisbane for a medical conference. Check in was a breeze, and communication with Jennifer was outstanding. The apartment was accurately described with the photos posted online. Value was great too considering the costs of hotels near the conference center. Uber was between 7-12 AUD to the conference center. It was fairly easy to walk downtown, but the way back is a bit rough with a steep climb uphill. Only minor complaint was that, although beautiful, the old-style window panes were very thin, making the outside traffic noticeable. It was fine for me, as I prefer to have some background noise when sleeping, and is really the only thing I can think of in terms of a potential negative at the property. All in all, it was a fantastic stay. I highly recommend! Andrew UTAH, USA July 2017 Gorgeous apartment for a larger group and for entertaining. Art deco style and lots of original features but with all mod cons makes this a lovely place to stay. Well equipped, light and airy with a homely feel. We all loved it. Large balcony with BBQ made for easy entertaining! Karen (Kaspash) UK Feb 2017 ★★★★★
What makes this Apartment unique
My family travelled from overseas for our wedding and we found this property by chance and we are so glad we did! Jennifer was excellent in accommodating us, even offering us an extra room which she didn't need to do. The apartment was spacious and more than enough to fit 8 people. Everything there was in good condition and there was more than enough there to get you started. Highly recommended! Bec, Sept 2016 ★★★★★ This was the perfect place for my extended family who came to attend our wedding. It was big enough to accommodate 8 people and everything in there was in great condition! Jennifer was so accommodating even offering us an extra room in another apartment 2 days before the wedding as an emergency when she didn't need to. Highly recommended! Rebecca R, Qld Sept 2016 We were fortunate enough to receive an upgrade in one of Jenny's properties and we were extremely comfortable for our stay. A fantastic pet-friendly apartment which allowed our family of 4 plenty of space to relax and work as needed. Everything we needed was provided making it a lovely city-stay whilst we needed to move out of our home for a short period. Thanks very much, we would definitely recommend to friends! Jenny was readily available via phone/text to answer any questions that came up. Many thanks. Lisa, July 2016

Carrington Manor was perfect. We had the first level which was perfect for us as we were travelling with my Mother-in-Law who has mobility issues. Comfortable beds, well stocked kitchen. No noise from other tenants. Overall a great stay.
Luxurious, quality comfort and amazing views

Wonderful apartment and great location
The apartment met all our expectations.. It is excellently appointed, with impressive décor and ample space and facilities for a group/large family. The views over the Brisbane sky line, particularly in the evening from the balcony, which has its own barbecue facility, are a highlight.
Jennifer was a very friendly and helpful landlord.
Great place to stay for a group - great layout and location
Stayed here for a work trip with five people. One of the few places that I could find to take us all under one roof with everyone having their own room. It made it much more affordable. Great layout of house and handy location. I did notice some road noise initially, but I otherwise live in a very quiet location and by the third night I didn't notice it at all. Very handy having combination door access if staying with a large group, makes it easier to manage comings and goings. The property is fitted out to a high standard and had everything we needed.
Excellent group accommodation
We booked all 3 apartments for a visiting dance company and they couldn't have been happier. The apartments are absolutely beautiful and fully equipped with everything they needed. Jen was very helpful and communicative. This is now our preferred accommodation for visiting groups and we will definitely be booking again.
Character property that oozes class with a little bit of funk!!!
Carrington House is perfect if your after a weekend/week away with a few people and wish to entertain, the facilities are exceptional.

You will not want for anything if you stay here!!!
The owner Jennifer was prompt in replying to my request to stay at Carrington House and very helpful.
I highly recommend this property and will be using Carrington House again as it was Perfect.
This is a superb location. Walking distance to the vibrant Fortitude Valley precinct and 2 kms from Queen St Mall. The RNA show grounds and the Royal Brisbane Hospital are a 5 min walk away.
Spring Hill is the more affluent suburb of inner Brisbane city, home to mostly professional families.
The suburb is quiet, safe and well established with character homes and significant buildings.
The Centenary pool complex is a short walk through the park opposite and is available for public use.
Carrington Manor enjoys a walk score of 93/100. Considers a walker's paradise so daily errands will not require a car and transport score of 98/100 - 8 min walk to trains and bus stop 200 m.
