We love our spacious family friendly home and you will too. Surrounded by friendly families and children our place is great to unwind and spread out while travelling. Plenty of toys for children and space for relaxing.
(NOTE: We are in the process of selling our home based business which operates from the office upstairs. Should the sale not be finalised by the time we leave in July/August our office assistant Helen may need to access the office for a few days during our holiday (btwn 9:30am-1pm) and otherwise will work from her home. We are happy to discuss this situation further via message)
Welcome to our family home in sunny Salisbury Queensland!
Our home is family friendly as we designed the layout to suit our three children aged 9yrs (girl), 7yrs (girl) and 6yrs (boy). Our house only 7 yrs old with modern appliances and plenty of toys to keep the kids amused.
We built our house seven years ago in Salisbury as it is close to the city (by car and public transport) and has an lovely community/family group. There are three parks located within a 5-15 minute walk which we frequent several times a week. Our children attend the local school and preschools.
Location of Salisbury:
-a short drive to large theme parks such as Dreamworld, Wet'n'wild, Movie World and Seaworld (max drive will be 50 mins-1hr)
-catch the train (10 min walk from the house) to any of these theme parks as they have bus transfers available
-only 1hr drive from our beautiful Australian surf beaches
-travel north to the Sunshine Coast or south to the Gold Coast and go to sandy beaches to swim, body surf or board surf.
-15 mins to the city (Inc South Bank which has a huge water play area and beach, heaps of sight-seeing attractions & less than 1hr to our QLD sandy surf beaches - Gold Coast or Sunshine Coast)
We are vacating to Northern NSW for our annual family holiday so our place will be available mid December to mid January 2016.

Hello my name is Melinda and I am the Company Director of Melinda's Gluten Free Goodies ( and my husband is an Australian Federal Police Officer.
We are embarking on a five week holiday with our children and my parents to explore the UK, Ireland and Scotland and revisit some of our favourite places from our last visit three years ago.
Our children (and parents!) are very well behaved and we will be respectful of your place, personal belongings & neighbours during our stay. We are seeking spacious, fully equipped, apartments so we can home cook and enjoy down time as a family.
We have rented our own house through airbnb previously and will be doing the same again this trip. You will also note our positive reviews from our airbnb stays during our last overseas trip.
We look forward to staying in your place as part of this experience.
We would be more than happy to supply references and more information about us for you to make a decision!
