Property type house


About the property

House in Spring Hill, 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4

Our mini apartment, 3 block from CBD is in 1898 Victorian House. Has Kitchen, Bathroom & 2 large, high-ceilinged bedrooms. Fully furnished FREE wi-fi, free carpark (this can save you a small fortune in Brisbane) as well as full laundry facilities.

The apartment is a self contained space within a beautiful Victorian house - rare in Brisbane.

It consists of:-

2 bedrooms both with deadlocking doors, separately keyed, containing 2 queen size beds.

Full mini kitchen with work bench, induction cooker, toaster, coffee machine, kettle, dishwasher, full size fridge, freezer, convection oven, microwave, sink, cutlery including bottle openers, can openers, corkscrews, flatware for 4 people, pots and pans and fire extinguisher.

Full lockable bathroom, which includes a dual head shower, toilet and hand basin.

2 independent studies with desk and chairs, one off each bedroom.

An enclosed Veranda overlooking the street,

Hallway, which divides the two bedrooms and connects the front apartment to the rest of the house, as well as providing access to the car park at the rear.

The wet areas have slip resistant surfaces.

The apartment has polished wooden floors with the exception of bathroom, kitchen and master bedroom, which is carpeted.

You have your own private entrance at the front of the property, which has ramp access for disabled as well as an outdoor raised landing area for summer time drinks, or if required a safe area for outside smoking.

The house, in keeping with Queensland building style is on stumps, stilts or poles depending on your preferred name ( wiki Queenslander_(architecture) for more info ) this means the house is approx. 2meters off the ground but is still considered a ground floor apartment. All windows have security bars and all external doors are deadlocked.

The bedroom windows have blackout curtains if you like to sleep late.

The bedrooms are supplied with Alarm clocks

You have your own washing machine, tumble dryer, hair dryer and iron

The bedrooms have smoke detectors fitted

Built in 1898 the house is a rare example of turn of last century colonial construction. It was recently renovated and is in great condition. It is rare to find a house (with yard) so close to the central business district available for short term rent.

We are 3 Blocks from the heart of the city (Queen St Mall) and 5 minutes walk to central train station; with free CBD loop bus stops less than 2 minutes walk away to take you to city, Southbank, the Botanical Gardens or Fortitude Valley.

My goal is to maintain the rooms to a very high standard.

All beds have 1200 Thread Count Egyptian Cotton Sheets, Four Pillows per bed, Woollen Blankets and Dooner/Duvet for Winter.

After each guest the rooms are commercially cleaned hence the cleaning charge. This includes: -

Fully stripping all bedding including cushion covers, mattress and pillow protectors for commercial laundering.

Steam and Vacuum Mattresses individually.

Carpets are steam cleaned each month and thoroughly vacuumed prior to your arrival; a Dyson vacuum and steam mop is available should you wish to vacuum during your stay.

Polished Wooden floors are mopped then steam cleaned with an antiseptic 100% environment friendly floor wash.

Bathroom is fully steam cleaned and restocked with Shampoo/ Conditioner / Hand soap.

All Towels and bathmats are commercially laundered.

Air conditioner filters and fans are cleaned monthly.

All kitchen items hand cleaned including work surfaces, and all flatware regardless of indications of use are re dish washed.

I provide a starter pack in the kitchen that includes: -

Instant Coffee

Coffee pods for Coffee Machine

An assortment of premium Teas

4 Litres of Bottled Water (Brisbane water is fine to drink)

Tim Tams An Australian Classic @@@@@

Vegemite An Australian Classic @@@@@

Nibbles (depends on seasonal variations - nuts, savoury biscuits, fruit bowl etc)



Cooking Oil



Loaf of Bread

Margarine / Butter

For overseas guests I also provide a complementary SIM in case you have just arrived and wish to connect your mobile phone to the Australian mobile network to avoid roaming charges. You are responsible for activating it and all associated usages charges. Once activated the SIM becomes personalised in your name and you are free to take it with you.

I also have a selection of local maps, public transport timetables and tourist information which you are free to take.

The apartment also has a Laser Printer with Paper etc that you are free to use if you require print-outs. Ive found this especially handy when printing out day trip information or directions. The printer is located in the study area of the bedroom.

Brilliant location with easy access walking into Bribane City. The House was superb with additional thoughtful items that made being away from home so easy. Excellent kitchen facilities with everything we needed - so much nicer than a sterile hotel room. Parking was easy at the rear of the property and routes driving out of the city were easily managed from the property. The folder with useful information about local supermarkets etc was much appreciated.

Our stay at the "Berry Street Mansion" was terrific!. The well appointed and perfectly situated space was the ideal spot for the family to explore Brisbane. Melissa's level of communication meant we always knew what was going on and that she was available as needed. I hope to to stay with here again.
