“Wonderful Hosts! Fab location! Gorgeous!”
Reviewed 8 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My husband and I just returned from a week long stay at Green Gables with our two daughters! Green Gables is the front apartment of a lovely renovated Queenslander. It has always been a dream of mine to stay in one and I wasn't disappointed! The apartment itself is completely gorgeous and the hosts Jen and Ian are so friendly and welcoming! They are the warmest most loving people you could ever meet!! We felt like we were staying with old friends! Much better than a hotel. Set in the beautiful suburb of Auchenflower we enjoyed beautiful evening walks and during the day we would often walk pushing our stroller to the Toowong Village to go the library and shops (15mins) or down to catch the city cat which takes you on the river over to South Bank (wow!) or the city. It's a peaceful spot and we had the best nights sleep tucked in our comfy beds! We were so sad to leave and look forward to our next trip to Green Gables! Thanks so much to Jen and Ian for everything they did to welcome us. Could not recommend higher!

“Central Location and lots of Charm”
Reviewed 27 May 2015 for a stay in August 2014

My friend and I enjoyed the lovely space at Green Gables and central location in Auchenflower. It is just a stroll (or morning run) to the river & lots of cafes and great bookshop close-by to relax the day away. Train station is also just at the end of the street! Thanks so much Jen and Ian for having us.

“Great Stay”
Reviewed 23 May 2015 for a stay in March 2014

I have been impressed by the “Green Gables » cottage nestled amongst trees and shrubs and centrally located near the heart of Brisbane. It is a lovely little house close to the river with all the amenities you might need: buses and trains, restaurants and shops, in particular the near-by Park Road restaurants and coffee precinct. In this area, so close to the city centre, the cottage has the notable advantage of providing your own car parking space.
Inside the rooms are very clean, smart, spacious and uncluttered with beautiful polished floors. You can do your own cooking and washing or take a rest reading a book on the front veranda.
You will find that the hosts Jenny and Ian are always ready to help and advise you and you will enjoy your stay in their really pleasant and convenient cottage.

“Terrific!”
Reviewed 21 May 2015 for a stay in February 2014

This was a great place. Close to public transport and river ferry it was easy to get into the CBD.
Great Park Rd restaurants easy walk away and lovely walks along river. It's clean, cosy and comfortable and Jen and Ian are relaxed but have a great attention to detail. Highly recommend.

“Fantastc”
Reviewed 18 May 2015 for a stay in April 2014

We loved our stay at Green Gables. The apartment has a lovely feel to it, is well equipped and was spotless, close to shops and convenient for public transport and lovely river walks, so loved zipping about on the city cat. I stayed with 2 teenagers and my son and there was ample room. It is in a beautiful leafy street lined with old trees and the apartment was full of character with everything we needed. We didn't want to go home and would love to stay again. The hosts were amazing helpful and friendly people who couldn't do enough for us. Thanks so much Jen and Ian.

“Lovely quiet spot”
Reviewed 18 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

A gorgeous cottage which is very close to the Wesley hospital and Park Rd cafés. Jen and I didn't meet but spoke regularly during the stay. Jen is very accommodating and caring. The description is very accurate and I would certainly recommend the cottage

“Great stay”
Reviewed 14 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

"We really enjoyed our stay at Green Gables. It is a light and airy apartment at the front of the block, with a large living area/kitchen and front verandah. Its close to everything, with trains and buses in walking distance and a great little take away at the end of the street. Thoroughly recommend it."
