If you're an easy going young university student stepping from home life out into adulthood this is for you. We have a room available as of 24/08/2019

All our 3 rooms are set up for study with air conditioning and full unlimited internet access.

We are a warm, family home with multicultural background with English/Cantonese speaking wife and great cook. We are situated across the river from University Of Queensland St Lucia Campus and also a bike or bus ride to Griffith South Bank, SBIT and QUT city Campus. We are a progressive married couple with one teenage daughter at university (19 years old ).

We operate in the main as a family home (which is why there's no student cooking) but with a focus on student accommodation. It's like a homestay but run by your uncle lets say. Ideal for younger students (18-25 years) focused on study and getting out and seeing the country when not studying.

We have a very large two story home with 3 student bedrooms (first available date is listed in the summary).

All three rooms are in the very quiet upstairs zone of our home. All are perfect for study with; desks, shelving, wireless internet, access to wireless printing and exclusive use of an upstairs bathroom.

We are close to a bus stop for transport to the city and just a 14 minute bike ride to UQ St Lucia campus (We have guy's and girl's bikes, locks and helmets you can borrow on deposit). Morning lifts to the UQ bridge (5 minutes) which connects to the UQ St Lucia campus are available every school day and pick up when needed.

Please note: we do not strictly cater for any special dietary requirements whether personal choice eg 'Vegan' or religious eg 'Halal'. Lock that in to your consideration.

We can supply references from previous Homestay guests on request. Here are a few quotes from Students who have stayed

"I recommend this Homestay to anyone that wants an Aussie stay, especially students like my friends and I!"
Sophie. China.

"I have mentioned your family so many times to my parents and friends since I came back. My parents want to say thank you, and welcome you to visit China :)"
Yiqing. China

"As a student from the UK, I had the pleasure of staying with Garry and Wendie from February to June 2016. They were both very welcoming and within a couple of weeks it already felt like a second home to me. Wendie is great in the Kitchen and Garry on the BBQ. With a superb location beside the University and City as well as an amazing family, I would highly recommend this location to anyone"
Matt. UK

Feel free to contact us with any questions. Regards Garry & Wendie.
