A little bit modern, and a little bit retro is the best way to describe this beautifully appointed ground floor unit underneath our newly renovated Queenslander.
@599 is a newly built unit underneath our 1900's Queenslander. It is modern and a little bit retro with polished concrete floors in the Kitchen/Living room and the Bedroom. The unit is beautifully appointed with everything you will need to make your stay enjoyable and make this your home away from home.
The unit has reverse cycle Air-conditioning for those hot summer days, or cool winter nights. There are also two ceiling fans in the kitchen/living room and another ceiling fan in the bedroom. Rehau uPvc double glazed windows and doors, and extra insulation keep the unit quiet and private. The windows are also fitted with flyscreens to keep out the pesky bugs and mosquitos.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a 900mm Smeg oven/Rangehood, LG Fridge and Dishwasher. It also has enough pots, pans, crockery and cutlery so you can create a masterpiece in the kitchen, or alternatively why not make use of your own BBQ on the patio. Inside there is a dining table and chairs to seat 4, or there is an outside setting if you prefer to eat outside.
Contained in the unit there is also a private bathroom and toilet. The massive shower is fitted with a hand held wand, or you can stand under the 250mm rain head to help wash away the days exploring.
In the bedroom, there is a Queen sized bed fitted with quality linen and a built in robe so that you can unpack while staying with us so you do not feel like you are living out of a suitcase.
We can also accommodate up to two children as the couch in the living room can be made into a sofa bed (real inner spring mattress) We also have an additional single bed mattress upstairs which could be setup on the floor if it is needed.
The unit has a flat screen Sony Bravia TV. This is connected to the @599 Wireless network via a Roku Telstra TV. You are also welcome to use the Netflix subscription we have, or connect any of your technological gadgets to our wireless network. You are also able to use the Bigpond Movie streaming service that is part of the Telstra TV device, however these would need to be paid for but are not expensive at around $6.00 a movie.
Access to the unit can be either by the front door, or via the French doors at the back of the property. The French doors look out onto the Patio and up into the garden. Please remember to close the gate if coming in the back door as our Beagle does not have a great deal of road sense.
You are welcome to use any of the facilities in the unit, or on your patio. If you would like to use the Pizza oven please ask as it does require some experience.
During your stay with us, please just let us know if there is anything you need, as we will be upstairs. Both of us work during the day, but can be reached via mobile phone if needed. You are more than welcome to come chat with us or join us for a BBQ, or a pizza when the Pizza oven has been fired up, or if you would prefer to enjoy your stay in private that is also no problems.
Laundry. There is a laundry on premise, which you are more than welcome to use. There is a small clothes line in the laundry, or we do have a clothes-horse in the apartment that you are also welcome to use.
We are very flexible with check in/out times, and understand that if you are flying in especially from overseas you may arrive at any time and are happy to try and accommodate you.
Check in is generally after 3.00pm with check out around 11:00am
This is a STRICTLY NON-SMOKING property, and we ask that noise be kept to a minimum after 10 p.m.
This is a working house, with two children, while generally pretty good there may be the odd noise from upstairs.
I'm a registered nurse and Matt, my husband, is in I.T. We are parents to two girls (a 17 year old, and a 11 year old). We also are proud fur parents of a Beagle and two cats.
I moved to Queensland in early 2013, leaving behind the rest of the family who followed about three months later. Matt drove the two kids, our two dogs, and two cats from Victoria with a one night stop over in Dubbo along the way.
Before moving we found our 1900's 'Queenslander' online and when I arrived was lucky enough to view and purchase the property which settled the day before the rest of the family arrived.
I love making Teddy Bears, reading, cooking and playing Tennis, all be it a little badly and to travel. Matt's are tennis, he plays a little better then I, and his two old beaten up Volkswagens which are currently taking up space in my garage.
We spent 2015 renovating and extending our 'Queenslander' as being over 100 years old she was beginning to show her age. She is now finished and there is now much more space for friends, family and YOU to come and stay.
During your stay with us, please just let us know if there is anything you need, as we will be upstairs. You are more than welcome to come chat with us or join us when we fire up the wood fired Pizza oven in the backyard, or if you would prefer to enjoy your stay in private that is also no problems.
We look forward to welcoming you into our home!
