2 bedroom fully self-contained flat with all amenities and separate access/ car parking. Full kitchen, large master bedroom, comfy lounge room, bathroom includes washing machine and large shower, private driveway and parking, outdoor deck with table and chairs. Tranquil retreat perfect for couple/small family yet close enough to Brisbane/Gold Coast, surf beaches, all major theme parks. Lots of natural attractions inland.

2 bedrooms - queen size main and a double bunk (both singles) in second bedroom. Each bedroom has a built-in office desk and swivel chair. The kitchen is full sized with all possible amenities including cooktop, oven, microwave, 2 door fridge and numerous appliances. Suitable for a couple simply wanting a quiet retreat or a family of 4 (extra person is possible but only on application) keen to spend time exploring the many attractions our local area has to offer and using the apartment as a home base. There is a dining nook plus a lounge with TV/DVD. Bathroom has a large shower and a washing machine. Small outside deck with BBQ and table/seating. Flat/apartment overlooks 3.5 acres of natural bushland. Distant views to coast and islands. All previous guests have commented how VERY quiet, relaxing and close to nature this apartment really is yet its so close to everything (a short drive down to all necessary amenities and the M1 free which can take you anywhere - Brisbane and Gold Coast or inland areas).
Whole flat/apartment available for your use. Totally self contained and completely separate from the main house. Private parking space for more than one car available. There is a private drive-through road to the flat which also has its own entrance and outside deck overlooking a forested area. Contact us if you require early check-in or late check-out (or have extra child/guest over the suggested limit of 4 guests).
We live in the house above but the 75sqm flat/apartment below is totally separate, fully insulated from noise and completely self contained so guests will never be disturbed. We have a folder of maps and interesting notes about attractions and things to do in the area. There are ample restaurants and eateries within 5 mins drive and an even wider selection closer to Brisbane and the Gold Coast. Most of our guests prefer to make use of the full kitchen with all its mod cons to cook meals. There are 2 full sized supermarkets plus an after hours 7Eleven nearby. Ask us for recommendations or refer to our house and travel/attractions ideas manual.
If you wish to be close to Brisbane AND the Gold Coast then this is the place to be. Just 5mins from M1 freeway to get your anywhere but so peaceful you only hear the birdsong. Brisbane Airport and Coolangatta Airport are equi-distant from our property. Experience the best of all worlds. You are close enough to be able to experience the hustle and bustle of city life yet within a few minutes be relaxing up close and personal with nature. Inland is a huge natural playground to explore and on your doorstep you have world famous attractions such as MovieWorld, DreamWorld, WetNWild, Outback Spectacular, Paradise Country Farm and SeaWorld. So many activities to choose from or just sit and relax and enjoy the bush right outside your door.
If you are arriving by train the closest station is Ormeau. It is 5 minutes away by car but you will need to organise a taxi to get to our house. Because it is a small rail station, taxis are not normally on hand so its a good idea to ring a ahead for a taxi.
We do not allow pets and smoking is not permitted.
Free wifi. We store rain runoff in tanks - our water is therefore sweet and chemical free but we would appreciate frugal use of this limited resource. We also ask that you care for and respect our lovely apartment as you would hope we would care for yours.
We are a semi retired couple in our late sixties. We were originally secondary teachers and have worked for many years in technology related fields. We love our home and enjoy our grandkids, the outdoors, photography, bike riding, reading, traveling and meeting people. When our son is travelling overseas we offer our self contained flat (below our house) as an AirB&B. It gives us a chance to host travellers like us. We know that every day above ground is a bonus because you are a long time dead.
