I found Founda Gardens by default, after enquiring about another property. It looked good on the website and rated well, so we went ahead with the booking for 2 nights. The location was ideal for us, as we were looking for something nice not too far from the QPAC (to see War Horse) which could accommodate our family of four, my recently widowed father and my husband's father. Four bedrooms would have been ideal for us, but we settled for three. Sheryl and Sharon were very pleasant to deal with and helpful via phone and email, and in person. The apartment was very nice, although there were a few things I thought could be improved on for the tariff. There was a problem with the main TV in the lounge room which could not be resolved, despite Sheryl and Sharon trying their utmost. It was important to our visit, as my husband wanted to watch the State of Origin final the following night, on his birthday eve, causing him a great deal of angst. To their credit, Sheryl and Sharon arranged another larger TV by the following afternoon, and saved the day. Positives: location, spacious, nice view, fairly well appointed, 3 bedrooms, nice staff. Negatives: TV not working for the first night, single bed frames not long enough for my 6'4" son, single beds uncomfortable, bedspreads ala budget motel, only lounge seats for four in an apartment for six, ensuite shower not super clean/drain smelly, gauze doors flimsy and dusty, only two sachets of dishwasher powder... However, the good features by far outweighed these minor annoying details.
