This self-contained spacious Studio in a quiet leafy suburban street can be your home away from home. The location is handy to shops, public transport, laundromat, Moreton Bay & the Motorway for a quick trip to the airport, or easy access to the city, Gold or Sunshine Coasts.
There is ample parking on the street, and you are also welcome to use the driveway for parking.
You'll enjoy lovely bayside breezes most afternoons in this light, airy and immaculately clean space. There is also reverse cycle air conditioning and a floor fan for those days when the breeze fails.
Once I have greeted you on arrival and provided you with your own set of keys, you will have separate access to the Studio directly from the driveway.
The sleeping area includes a comfortable queen-sized & single bed, as well as a wardrobe with hangers that has been added since the photos were taken. I can also provide a single airbed, as well as a portable cot, if needed. There is plenty of storage space so that you are not surrounded by luggage during your stay.
The kitchenette is equipped with a small refrigerator, microwave oven, single element cooktop, small baking/grilling oven, electric frying pan, kettle, coffee plunger & toaster. Crockery & cutlery to meet basic cooking needs is also provided. If you need anything else I will happily provide it for you. A small table with four chairs provides a handy place for using your laptop as well as dining. USB chargers, as well as extra power points, are available for your devices.
The bathroom includes the toilet and shower, a laundry hamper and hair dryer, and also has ample storage space for your toiletries. PLEASE NOTE that while the unit itself is wheelchair accessible, there are two steps up into the shower.
The lounge area has a small TV, DVD player, ChromeCast Dongle, a generous sized, good quality sofa and a comfy old rocking chair.
An iron and ironing board are also provided.
You will have full access to the Wi-Fi, and also to a shared covered outdoor area that looks out onto the back garden. Children's toys as well as a dart board, cards, and a range of other games are available for shared use. I am also happy for you to use the washing machine and clothes line.
Feel free to use the driveway for parking. It is very steep and some guests find it easier to use the street for parking.
If you are arriving back after 9pm at night, could you please ensure that you are quiet as you enter out of respect for other guests and our neighbours.
PETS POLICY: If you would like to bring your pet with you, please discuss it with me before confirming your booking. As a general rule, I prefer well- behaved, small, non-shedding dogs to be the only pets that stay here. However, if you have another kind of pet that you'd like me to consider, please just ask.
If you are bringing your pet with you, please clean up any mess they make, including their droppings which should be placed in plastic bags and put these in the wheelie bin with the red lid at the front of the house.
OUR INTERACTION WITH EACH OTHER:
This is my home and I value my privacy as much as yours.
I live in the upstairs part of the house. I work on a casual basis as a Mediator, and so I am often around should you need anything during your stay. I will respect your privacy and will also be happy to share a cuppa and a chat from time to time if you wish.
There is a granny flat that adjoins your studio and it is also let out to guests, and so it is important that we all respect each other's privacy and need for peace and quiet :)
I lead a fairly quiet life and have good relationships with our neighbours in our peaceful street. I ask that guests respect my private living areas, and not have loud music or make lots of noise so that these aspects of my life can continue :)
No smoking on the property please
Check-in time is flexible.
Check-out time is also generally flexible. However, my preference is check-out by 10am.
Wynnum is a tranquil family-friendly bayside suburb that boasts great facilities for fishing, sailing/boating, walking, cycling, & kayaking. It has a growing number of interesting little cafes & boutique shops springing up in the central shopping centre, as well as along the Esplanade. It's also a popular spot for op shopping! Of course, fish & chip shops abound! Close by is a Wynnum Plaza which has Woolworths, Coles, KMart and a range of other shops.
The Wynnum Golf Course is a stone's throw away!
An information Folder about local attractions is provided in the Studio.
Wynnum is far enough away from the city to provide all the leisurely benefits of a beachside village, yet close enough (40 minute train ride) to easily enjoy a day out at Southbank or the centre of town.
If you don't have your own vehicle, it's a short walk to bus stops, and a longer walk (about half an hour) to the train station. I am happy to drive guests to the train station if I am available when you wish to travel. A five to ten minute walk will take you to a bus stop for the Wynnum/Manly Loop route which stops at all the train stations.
Information about public transport is provided in the Information Folder in the Studio.
It is a five minute drive to access the Gateway Motorway which will take you South to the Gold Coast, or North to the Sunshine Coast. The airport is a 10 minute drive away using the Gateway Motorway.
