I live in beautiful tree filled Norman Park. It’s a quiet neighbourhood but close to the city with easy access, a 10 minute bus trip if not in peak traffic. You can catch the citycat (boat) up the river to the city, Southbank and UQ. We have a very friendly dog, Alfie. You would have complete use of our lower floor area which has 2 bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, lounge, laundry and separate access. I have been hosting overseas students and travellers for a few years. We are very close to public transport and 3 kms from the city and very close to Shafston College. We are also close to QUT Gardens Point, the City, Southbank TAFE, a gym, Thai restaurant and public transport. There are 3 coffee shops handy. There is a separate kitchen for your use, cooking equipment, fridge, microwave, hotplates etc. Wifi Internet and electricity etc is included. I am respectful of your privacy but always available to answer questions or help if I can.
PLEASE NOTE I DON'T PROVIDE THE LIGHT BREAKFAST. THE HOMESTAY WEBSITE ADDS THIS AUTOMATICALLY.
We are close to river and major roads but it is a quiet, leafy area.

    I really enjoyed my time here! I really felt at home. The room and house were very comfortable, and the location was great, both convenient as well as beautiful and green. Big thank you to Sue for being such a great host and providing everything to make me feel comfortable. Will miss living here, especially will miss little Harvey!

    The place was lovely, and light with gorgeous garden and green all around. I had the place to myself, so was particularly lucky. Sue was helpful and courteous doing whatever she could do to make my stay comfortable.

    Well, what can I say? I had a superb trip, Sue was fantastic, Brisbane was welcoming, the weather was out of this world - I wanted to stay for ever.
    (I'm sorry Sue. I would have awarded more stars but it only goes up to 5.)

    Sue is a friendly, down to earth and welcoming host. The house and gardens are lovely and close to public transport. I enjoyed the garden and the outdoor deck immensely. The room was so comfy and down stairs from the main house so you had a lot of privacy. This was defiantly a wonderful experience and I recommend this "Home" to future traveller's. Thanks again Sue for a wonderful stay.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
