Redlands Retreat is a very large home in Brisbane's bayside suburb of Thornlands (near Cleveland), and is often used by large groups who need easy access to Sirromet or a starting point for wedding preparation. The property suits one or more families, sports teams or work groups who want to spend time in a house, not a unit, on a short stay basis. The home has 7 bedrooms, upstairs has 4 bedrooms and two bathrooms, downstairs are 3 more bedrooms and one bathroom. The upstairs rooms include: king size bed in the master with ensuite; second bedroom with queen size bed; third and fourth bedrooms with twin single beds (2 single beds in each room); and, a fold down futon in the upstairs living space. Downstairs has one room with a double bed with an adjoining bedroom with daybed and downstairs bathroom access (two separate bedrooms that may be open or closed off); and a separate bedroom with a double bed. All bedrooms are a good size. There are four living areas and a large kitchen, with stainless steel fridge, dishwasher and microwave. The laundry has a front loading washing machine and a dryer is in the garage and there are two large outside washing lines. There are 3 split systems downstairs, including in 2 of the bedrooms; there are ceiling fans in all upstairs bedrooms and downstairs living rooms. There is ducted air-conditioning upstairs. There is a double garage with direct house entry, additional room for 2 cars in the driveway, as well as room for a boat. The yard is fully fenced. Flooring is porcelain tile and wood, so no carpet for allergy sufferers. We supply free wi-fi, but not unlimited data, and there is foxtel on one television for sports lovers. There is a large outside entertaining area with barbecue. **Please note there is no longer access to a pool at this property.** The base rate covers accomodation for up to 10 people, and we are strict about numbers-extras up to a total of 14 can be included for a small charge.
The area of Thornlands sits between Cleveland and Victoria Point. Cleveland is the end of the Cleveland train line and also the venue of numerous sporting and cultural events throughout the year. The ferry to Stradbroke Island leaves from Cleveland and there is the famous Cleveland Point and the Grandview Hotel to visit (oldest pub in Brisbane). Raby Bay beaches are 5 minutes away, or just find a fishing spot somewhere on Moreton Bay. The Bay has been the backdrop for numerous movies and most recently the latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie-we have even hosted film crews in our house! In the opposite direction is Victoria Point, where you can catch a ferry to Coochimudlo Island or do some shopping. Redland Bay is 10 minutes away, where you can travel by ferry to one of the Islands-visit Russell, Macleay or Lamb Islands.
