About the property

Eco Living Rainforest Retreat
This is a wonderful classic fully refurbished St Lucia house that has been almost doubled in size with a new architect designed extension. The air-conditioned house is furnished and overlooks an incredible outdoor deck, a super spacious pool and tropical rainforest gardens. Quality fit-out and fittings including Meile appliances, stone benchtops etc. A quality bathroom (limestone flooring, Grohe fittings) is shared by two other people. Large bi fold door open out onto deck and give the house an indoor outdoor feel.

The house has a eco-theme going and is designed for our hot summer. Features include solar hot water and power. We also compost and the flatmates feed the local king parrots.
The very quiet street lined residential street is surrounded by multi-million dollar houses with the house adjacent recently being sold for $1.85 million.

Only a short walk to, a multitude of cafes, restaurants, Stepz Fitness, Pizza Capers, Briki Espresso and Gelati Bar (amazing Flat Whites. The house is also down the street (2 minutes) from the St Lucia Golf Links, which is not only has a great 18 hole golf course but also the popular Hundred Acre bar . A naturesque and relaxing running/biking trail runs all the way to the University of Queensland and beyond. The city is only 4.5 km away and a short bus ride.

There are three bus stops less than 200m away from the house and it's a quick 5 minute bus ride to Toowong Village or the University. The Village has everything from a supermarket, yoga studios, and gyms, to incredible international restaurants and bars.

About the flatmates

We have had various mixes of nationalities including Australian, Canadian, American and European many of them studying higher degrees at UQ and some staff. We have also had many Australian working professionals. We have generally tried to have a mix of male and female housemates. At present we have 3 Australian singles in the house, 2 are students at UQ ( 1 male and 1 female) and the other girl is in fulltime employment with a local accountancy firm. We have a single Australian female in the bottom studio, she is chef and the top studio we have a professional couple who will be vacating shortly after Xmas.

The house has a max 3 people but there are two separate studios that we can rent to 2 singles or 2 doubles so there is ample space and separation. 3 bathrooms in total. If you could please tell me a little bit about yourself in your reply that would be great.
