Broadband internet and all utility costs included. Our homestay bedroom has its own desk, TV, microwave, mini-fridge and kettle.
Super central location in newly renovated traditional Queenslander home.
Walk to RBWH, UQ School of Medicine, QUT Kelvin Grove Campus, Spring Hill; direct and very frequent busses to CBD and UQ St Lucia from RBWH transit centre just a few minutes walk away. There is also easy cycling to all of these destinations, via bikeways (and walking paths).
We are Bea, who is a full-time public servant and studying at QUT part-time; Michael, who is retired, son (18) who is a full-time student at UQ St Lucia, and two very friendly labradors.
Our homestay room is a large bedroom with a queen-sized bed, a desk, wardrobe and ceiling fan. It's cool in summer and warm in winter due to great insulation. The room also has a microwave, mini fridge, kettle and TV. The bedroom is downstairs at the front of the house, and is attached to a large living area that takes up most of downstairs and a separate bathroom and laundry all of which you would share with our 18 year old. We also have a separate living room upstairs, along with a full kitchen and large back deck, which you are welcome to use.
You're welcome to use the kitchen (and there's also a small fridge and microwave in your room).
While we normally eat together (and you're welcome to be part of that, or not, as you prefer), though it can be a bit hit and miss as we're all busy with work, study, and other activities, on different evenings.
Western-style dinners can be arranged for weekdays only, at an additional cost of $40 pw. This could at times mean meals being available for you to heat and eat.
Airport pick up and drop off is available.
