I'm looking forward to welcoming you to this lovely home that I co-own with my son. I love the bayside area of Brisbane and am pleased to be able to share it with others. My working life has been mainly in the human services in a range of roles and I currently work as a Mediator on a casual basis. My two adult children are off leading happy and successful lives, and these days I enjoy gardening, spending time with family and friends, camping, bushwalking and meeting new people.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if cancelled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if cancelled at least 7 days before arrival date.
Best thing about some properties
This is a very nice unit, but sometimes the host/ hostess is overlooked. Certainly not in this instance as Jennie is lovely and went out of her way to make us welcome. Thanks so much Jennie!
Clean tidy, all you could ask for
Handy to everything we needed to do. Jeannie was so obliging Wright from the word go. Highly recommended
Great little appartment
Gorgeous little appartment very clean and tidy
Clean tidy and very comfortable
Had a great time lovely and cool in the unit very close to shops and beach and our dog Max loved it too.
Fabulous for the money
Your stay commences with the smiling face of Jennie the owner. The accommodation surpassed my expectations for the money. It has to be one of the most well equipped little places I have stayed. Jennie has thought of everything obviously to make your stay comfortable and clean as possible. I highly recommend and we will be back. Thank you Jennie
Brisbane apartment stay
The apartment is one of two on the ground floor of the owners home. They are only separated by a locked door so there is no sound insulation between the two. We could clearly hear the people in the other apartment talking and they must have been able to hear us. Total lack of privacy. The upstairs must have wooden floors as we could hear the owners dog walking around on it and the floorboards creak so once they were up in the morning so were we.....at 5am! The apartment itself is pleasant and spacious with a very nice shower but the doors to the bathroom are swing style louvre doors which offer no privacy or barrier to any smells from the bathroom, you can even see the TV through the slats whilst sitting on the toilet!! If you are not bothered by noise or lack of privacy this is an OK place to stay but it was not for us. In the information folder in the apartment it is acknowledged that there can be an issue with noise between the units but this is not mentioned before you book as we would not have booked this accommodation had we been aware of this issue.
Wynnum is a tranquil family-friendly bayside suburb that boasts great facilities for fishing, sailing/boating, walking, cycling, & kayaking. It has a growing number of interesting little cafes & boutique shops springing up in the central shopping centre, as well as along the Esplanade. It's also a popular spot for op shopping! Of course, fish & chip shops abound!
Close by is a Wynnum Plaza which has Woolworths, Coles, KMart and a range of other shops, including a laundromat. Walk to the Wynnum Gold Course!
An information Folder about local attractions is provided in the Apartment.
Wynnum is far enough away from the city to provide all the leisurely benefits of a beachside village, yet close enough (40 minute train ride) to easily enjoy a day out at Southbank or the centre of town.
If you don't have your own vehicle, it's a short walk to bus stops, and a longer walk (about half an hour) to the train station. I am happy to drive guests to the train station if I am available when you wish to travel. A five to ten minute walk will take you to a bus stop for the Wynnum/Manly Loop route which stops at all the train stations.
Information about public transport is provided in the Information Folder in the Apartment.
It is a five minute drive to access the Gateway Motorway which will take you South to the Gold Coast, or North to the Sunshine Coast. The airport is a 10 minute drive away using the Gateway Motorway.
