Our family of three stayed in this lovely Coorparoo home while on sabbatical in 2016. We can't say enough good things about the house and Mike and Heather as hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Coorparoo.

The house is comfortable, beautiful, well furnished, and close to everything. The interior is freshly painted and has intricate wood accents that really set off the decor. All appliances and furnishings are top quality and in great condition. Everything worked perfectly during our yearlong stay. The house has everything needed to live comfortably. The kitchen is fully stocked with all necessary food preparation, serving, and entertaining items.

It's a short five-minute walk to one of the nearby bus stops and then just one bus ride to the Brisbane CBD or any of the major universities. For example, it takes just 20 minutes door-to-door to get to UQ from the house. The Coorparoo area allows convenient access to any of the major motorways and the airport (15 minutes for the latter).

Mike and Heather were great to work with. They were very responsive to our initial queries, provided a thorough orientation to the house, and answered our subsequent questions quickly and completely. They even suggested several of their favorite activities, including the fantastic Fraser Island.

In short, we had a wonderful experience in this home. We could not have asked for a better place to spend our yearlong sabbatical.

My family (2 adults and 2 children) had the privilege of staying in the historical Torbreck building for 6 weeks while our house was being renovated. The unit is spacious and breezy and has been tastefully fitted out with a blend of retro furnishings and modern conveniences. It is so close to West End, South Bank and the City and we made the most of exploring the area. Mike and Heather were so easy to communicate with and had thought of everything to make us feel welcome and have a comfortable stay (eg coffee pods for the machine). Having a secure car park so close to the city, a beautiful pool and awesome views from the observatory made our stay really special. We LOVED our time at Torbreck and I made my husband promise that one day we will return there. We highly recommend it! Thanks Mike and Heather for having us stay in your unit.
