Home Away From Home!

Bedrooms 5
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 30 nights


About the property

Huge home, lovely pool, close to everything, what more do you want?

Being located only 5mins from both of the two major motorways it is the perfect position to get anywhere quickly - Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, city, airport etc. And so close to all the shops you will ever need!

Relax with the massive 51 inch (130cm) Samsung High Definition Plasma TV. The kitchen includes a bench-top reverse osmosis water filter, quality Gargia espresso machine, breadmaker, dishwasher and microwave. The three bathrooms include showers and toilets plus one has a bath. Linen is provided for your convenience. All the bedrooms and the living area have airconditioners, and some have ceiling fans as well, for those extra hot days to keep you comfortable. The master bedroom has an ensuite, air con and a walk in wardrobe. There are three bunks and four single beds (one is a King Single) in the other four bedrooms. (Note that the photos show 6 single beds but due to a large group coming in we had to change some to bunks). The house ideally suited to 8 people but the extra beds are there if you have an extra large group. There are plenty of children's toys to play with.

Outside boasts a fantastic entertaining area with barbeque. The award winning inground pool (2006 awards) is not huge, but great for cooling off on those hot days and is fully fenced for safety. There are bikes available for both children and adults alike to use. Very handy as out the back gate is space galore. Over 15km of concrete walkway beside the Bilimba creek, with additional bushwalks, mountain bike trails and parks off side tracks. The backyard is fully fenced with a swing set as well.

The home has a washing machine and a dryer for the rare occasions when the sun isn't shining. If you have a vehicle then the electric garage door opener will be very convenient for you. Did I mention the huge plasma TV? It truely is a home away from home!

Situated in Mansfield on a quiet cul-de-sac, the closest bus stop is only 600 metres or so away and the 2 major motorways only 5 minutes drive away! You are ideally situated to travel wherever takes your fancy, be it the Gold or Sunshine Coasts, the theme parks or into the city or Southbank (14 minutes by car). QE II Hospital is approximately 12 minutes drive and the Mater Children's Hospital is approximately 12 minutes away and it's 25mins to the Brisbane Airport. You also have 2 major shopping centres within 7 minutes drive - Westfield Garden City and Carindale - as well as a plaza with a supermarket and petrol station within minutes.

With all these features in an executive home, yet family friendly with childrens accessories, this lovely home is ideally suited to any family or large group wanting to enjoy what Brisbane and the surrounding area has to offer.

We look forward to hosting you and know you will love staying at your Home Away From Home!

A true home away from home

  • 5 of 5

You could truly not ask or want for anything. The place is in a quiet neighbourhood, being both close to the pacific highway to get to places and the City being only 20 minutes away, and public transport close at hand as well. Were there for my daughters wedding and the family just raved about with 2 lounges room for all. With 3 bathrooms and toilet's there was no waiting. Pool while small was enough to sit in and enjoy. Books to read, bikes to ride, large TV to view and basics of food there to start you off make this a true home away from home. The one thing to watch is there is only one double bed rest are singles, so suits one family. Cannot thank Stu and his family enough it was an awesome place.
