Our lovingly restored original Queenslander is styled to reflect the past but with a fresh, bright, contemporary approach-white walls, items collected from our overseas travels, books, art, vintage and new design fill the spaces.
NO filming or photography unless otherwise agreed. Wedding photography is permitted.

My design philosophy is classic with a quirky twist and every piece must tell a story. Artwork and pieces are sourced anywhere from overseas design stores to being restored after dragging them off the curb side throw outs. Design plays a big part in creating a friendly, relaxing environment conducive to 'just hanging out'. We pride ourselves on our extremely high standard of cleanliness and the high quality of our linen. We are so fortunate to have hosted so many wonderful people who love the space as much as we do and consider it their Brisbane home away from home. Each of the four bedrooms has it's own key access and includes a desk and private en suite bathroom. There are multiple common areas, designed for either maximum relaxation or socialising. Common areas include a long verandah (52sqm) located behind a wall of glass louvred windows with views across the city, a small study/library, sitting room with large TV and lounge, and a bright and airy dining room adjoining the kitchen area. The gourmet kitchen is modern, extremely clean and fully equipped with a coffee machine, double-door fridge with ice maker and cold filtered water, gas cook top, fruit and vegetable juicer. The laundry has a washing machine, ironing facilities and toilet. This is not a party house so please keep noise to a minimum (see rules for further details)
We like to tailor needs for our guests during their stay for eg if children are staying we will leave a box of lego, toys and books if required and flowers for special occassions.
Accès des voyageurs
This space has been specifically designed for guests and you won't find any personal belongings or clutter. It is on the first floor of a two story home. The ground floor is our/the owners private apartment and the gardens are for ground floor use only.
Échanges avec les voyageurs
It is located on the top floor of a two-storey Queenslander-style duplex. We live very busy lives so often we do not get to meet our guests. You can contact us by telephone if you have any queries. The downstairs is our apartment. Our friendly housekeeper, Melissa is there Monday to Friday 9:30-12:30 to clean and tidy and to answer any of your questions.
Watch this space as hoping to install air-condition at the end of this summer. There is only a few weeks of the year where temperatures are unbearably hot. It is both an environmental and affordability issue that has prevented us from installing air conditioners. For 90 percent of the year, they are not required. We also for similar reasons do not have a clothes dryer. There are industrial driers available at the end of the street should they be required.
We have two bikes available for free use and can be booked for half day blocks. Please call or text me for further details.
If you would like to escape Brisbane we have a studio cottage nestled in the rainforest of stunning Tamborine Mountain which is a one hour drive from Brisbane in the Gold Coast hinterland. If you are interested in amazing views, spectacular rainforest walks we can provide you with the perfect hideaway.
This is NOT a party house and we reserve the right to evict immediately any guest who disturbs our neighbours or ourselves. If we are not there our neighbours have our numbers and will call us to report any disturbances. We would ask that noise be kept to a discreet level. No parties or large gatherings unless otherwise discussed and agreed, absolutely no smoking inside and no pets.
We would ask that the house be left clean and tidy at all times as it reduces an invitation for insect pests especially in the kitchen after each use.
Your assistance in taking excess recycled waste to the bins at the front would be greatly appreciated.
Please do not move or drag furniture as this causes damage to floor and walls.
Clothes lines are provided in each room but for larger items please hang on lines provided in laundry.
We are happy for you to work from the house but please do not invite colleagues, family and friends to work from the house unless otherwise discussed with us. This includes sharing the internet password. Internet in Australia is overall not great. We have a reasonable amount of data but we do ask that you do not stream or download. By doing this it will inevitably be shaped. If you would like to download or stream, the state library which is not far from our house has free internet.
No filming or photography unless otherwise discussed (the exception being wedding photography which we love)
Of course, if you are staying and wish to give us a shout out on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) or on your travel blog we welcome it but would love to know if this happens so we can follow/like. Follow us on @plantation_accommodation
