About Jennifer Rylance
Tim and I own and operate Rylance Holiday Homes in Brisbane. We have been involved in student, short term and vacation accommodation for nearly 15 years. We have listened to our guests and have bought the perfect property to meet the major 'wish list' criteria and trade as Rylance Holiday Homes. We use VRBO when we travel and have applied everything we value in a vacation home to Lambert House. (See our other homes on VRBO).
Jennifer Rylance purchased this House in 2013
Why Jennifer Rylance chose Kangaroo Point
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. THE GABBA 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. HOTELS The famous Story Bridge Hotel is a pleasant 10 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. BRISBANE CITY CYCLE Brisbane has a bike network you can use to travel around Brisbane. If your trip is under 30mins there is no charge. One station is 2mins from Lambert House. PARKING There is a lock up garage on site with remote control for 1 car and off street for 2-3 more. Free street parking

Well presented and very comfortable
My husband booked Lambert House for a family reunion in Brisbane as a 50th birthday surprise for me. Lambert House was the perfect accommodation for us. It was amazingly equipped, maintained and decorated. It had ample room over its three floors for all of us (at the peak, there were 18 in the house). The house is so well-located that we could walk almost everywhere. And wherever we couldn't walk was just a short drive away. Jennifer was an excellent host and very responsive, both before and during our stay. I would without hesitation recommend Lambert House to any large groups who want a city centre base in Brisbane.
Amazing Lambert House!!
We rented this beautiful house as our 'home away from home' for the week of our Son's Wedding. We had many international and interstate family and friends attend the Wedding, and Lambert House afforded us the chance to have them visit us in a gorgeous family friendly environment. We will definitely use the house again as a new 'family base' when we next visit Brisbane!!
This holiday house is absolutely amazing. Family friendly and close to everything you need. Made my wedding week feel like a fairy tale. Money well spent. What a dream house.
Simply an Oasis
After a difficult and long journey, we arrived tired and humourless but once inside this beautiful home our spirits lifted. We expected the WOW factor, but the real Lambert House cannot be captured with photos.
Four of us stayed for the first week just renting the top floor, and when the extended family and friends arrived for the next 5 days we got to enjoy the whole home. On the weekend we had 13 people. There was ample room for all. The teenagers took to the casual lounge on the middle level the smaller children watched cable TV in the upper lounge. There are THREE HUGE flat screen TVs and a couple of smaller ones in bedrooms.
There were so many comfortable lounge and outdoor spaces we had trouble deciding where to relax next. The front verandah was our preferred place for morning coffee. With the beautiful tree framing our view of the passing cyclists, runners and students making their way to the nearby college. The evening wines were usually around the pool or on one colder night in the front formal lounge in front of the fireplace.
As one of the first guests to have the pleasure to stay here everything was new and beautifully presented. The beds were really comfortable and the linen top standard. We were pleased to have our tech savvy teenagers along when Tim helped set up the inhouse sound system through my son’s iphone. We could have our music or radio throughout the home and each room had individual wall controls. Amazing. A great touch was the auto lighting of the tree in the evening and a lovely water feature came on each night, lit with coloured lights.
The master bedroom is bigger than some apartments. Huge with sitting area, ensuite, walk in robe, small deck and we loved the king bed.
One of the main reasons we chose this home was to be close to the city. It was a beautiful walk of nearly 10 mins to dockside where we could catch a free ferry to the city, or the must-do City Cat ferry that services a large section of the Brisbane River. A couple of times a few of us chose to walk over the Story Bridge instead. Great restaurants and hotels and importantly a supermarket, were all closeby. We didn’t use the city bicycle option, but next time we will. There is a bike station 2mins from the house.
Jennifer was a great host whose obvious love for this house and attention to every detail contributed to the best holiday home stay we have had. We will definitely be back.
Kangaroo Point is one of Brisbane's premium inner city living suburbs. Home to mainly younger professionals, there are several luxury unit tower apartments. Fabulous walks along the river boardwalks with cafe's, ferries, parks and easy access to city centre.
