We have recently had an extended stay at Green Gables. Jen and Ian were away but always within touch through emails or phone. We treated it as our home and it became a haven for us. Peaceful private verandah and garden. A warm hearted friendly neighbour. Most important for us was that it was walking distance to the Wesley hospital. Easy access via train or ferry especially to the city. Great little eatery and corner shop just round the corner. Thank you Jen and Ian for making Green Gables available to us at this time in our lives. It was just so easy to move in and go to the kitchen and feel at home. It felt like we were having a holiday with family. Thank you for everything.
We were welcomed very warmly and the accommodation was as advertised. Lovely water pressure and instant hot water in the shower. Difficult parking but a convenient spot for the trains .Close to all the little shopping areas of Milton Rosalie and Paddington and Red Hill. thanks again Jen and Ian
My twin sister and I recently met in Brisbane for a short holiday.
Green Gables offered us a home away from home on every level. Our hosts made us feel very much at home.
The unit was furnished and equipped with everything a traveller would want and need. Such a charming older style property to spend quailty time in, but also close to public transport, local shops and restaurants.
If you want a unique holiday rental experience then Green Gables is the place for you. You'll love it I'm sure.
On the plus side there was a lovely shower, great air con, comfortable bed and easy parking.
The unit had a very 'lived in' feel and the standard of cleanliness was not what you would expect from a holiday rental. The main lounge area has 4 separate chairs which are ok to sit in for a short while, but not very relaxing and it felt like a waiting room. There are 2 bedrooms- with the TV being in bedroom 1 and bedroom 2 is used as an office by the owners and is across the veranda outside the main door. The kitchen area was functional but we had to wash items before we could use them. There was also an infestation of ants on our arrival which I can appreciate does happen in warm climates, but this was the only property during our trip to Australia that this was such a problem. I booked the property through the TA website and the owners emailed a few times requesting an early settlement to the balance, which was outside the normal payment schedule set up by TA, I declined their request and kept to the payment timescale. There was also lots and lots of email correspondence from the owners before and during our stay, as they clearly love their property and want others to do so. We had a few issues during our stay and they owners did apologise and compensated us by offering chocolates and wine. I would not want to stay here again.
Nice spacious two bedroom apartment well located to attractions in Brisbane or if visiting the university.. Very convenient for Wesley hospital if needed.
Check that parking available during the week as street parking is metered, weekends are not an issue.
