About the property

Waterfront lifestyle with kayaks, bicycles, pool table and bbq

This 1950 fisherman cottage has been nicely renovated to modern standard though it is not a luxury place, it is nice, clean with all modern amenities. Having a bbq in the front garden watching the water is a beautiful experience.

The main bedroom is spacious with a queen size bed, the second bedroom contains 2 single beds and there is a sofa bed in the entrance lobby. The living area is a big open space with a couch, a dining table, a pool table and the kitchen. There is one bathroom with a shower.

In the shed guests can use 2 adults bicycles and a kid bicycle, a double sea Kayak (2 adults + 1 child) and a single sea kayak also available 2 single river kayaks.

The train station is just under 15 minutes walk to go to Brisbane CBD or to the Gold Coast.

From our house you can cycle, walk or run following the waterfront to Manly and Wynnum and enjoy the Manly market on Saturdays/Sundays.

Lota creek is also a beautiful Aussie bushwalking experience, the track starts from Brenda's little foot Bridge on Bowering Street, under 10 minutes walk from our house.

Right from the front of your doorstep from Queen Victoria boat ramp, there is 2 hours kayaking in one direction in the famous Tingalpa Creek.

There are 2 nice playgrounds and parks for children nearby, one facing the front of the property for toddlers and little kids and another one under 10 minutes walk for older kids. Opposite the park for older kids, there are 2 fish and chips and burger shops Lota Takeaway and Bart’s Place.
