Lawrence lives upstairs so is close by for any queries or requirements to make your stay more comfortable yet you are free to relax and enjoy your own space.

Some considerations

- sorry, no dogs per se, although I completely understand some four legged friends are considered family members, so please enquire if you're travelling with a dog

- smoking is not permitted inside the unit, however please feel free to smoke outside

- hosting parties, yes within reason, please feel free to enquire

Thank you for considering these mini rules as they're purely to make life more comfortable for the permanent tenants in other units and for future guests staying at Toowong Colours.

Kind regards, Lawrence

Beautiful, tasteful and spacious!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful and relaxing atmosphere with a warm and friendly host. I still couldn't get the air con to stay on for longer than 5 minutes, but luckily it wasn't very hot while I was there. That's the only reason for the 4/5 for comfort. Really nice place to stay, highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thanks Marisa for your honest and frank review. The air cons were only serviced in March (6 months ago), however it seems we’ll need to call them back to fix whatever is wrong. Thanks for letting us know. I’m glad everything went well for the wedding day though. Cheers, Lawrence

What an excellent find!

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a magnificent location. So close to the city, river, transport and local shopping centre. The apartment was very clean, well-equipped with everything we could possibly need and so comfortable. Laurence was incredibly helpful, friendly and the most gracious host. Would highly recommend this property and would love to stay again on our next trip north.

Lawrence is a gem. Worked so hard to get the property ready for us. Look in the unit before going shopping as it has so much in it. Location is brilliant and we will be back.

I look forward to seeing you again and of course you are welcome again anytime. Cheers, Lawrence
