Share our home on a ridge above the Lockyer Valley with views to Toowoomba. Simple, comfortable, peaceful and secluded. It's a great place to unwind for a day or a week. Continental breakfast items included.
We love to live here and are happy to be able to share it with you! 47 acres of peace await you. Situated on a sandstone ridge we enjoy lovely views of the Lockyer Valley between the trees. There are many spots to sit and enjoy and relax. It's close enough to facilities and yet so far. The house is a simple shed structure, comfortable and open plan. There's plenty of room to move outside and living lends itself to being outside most of the year. We also have an unloved tennis court if you have the urge!
Guests have exclusive use of the bedroom, ensuite, sitting area and are welcome to share the downstairs part of our home with us including the (simple yet effective) kitchen, BBQ, lounge and laundry facilities. There are several outdoor areas for enjoying meals or relaxing with an afternoon drink.
Общение с гостями
We'll cross paths for sure given the nature of our living. We'll be in and out with our daily routines and we can spend most of our time in our space upstairs. We are fairly private people and respect that you may or may not want interaction. We are open for a chat and to assist in any way we can.

We try to be environmentally responsible. We are off grid for our electricity and our water supply is provided by the heavens so we ask you to respect this and be 'reasonable' in the use of these resources. If we are experiencing extended inclement weather, we may need to run the generator to boost the batteries. Apart from this, you'd barely know we're using a sustainable energy source.
Since we're on a ridge, we have a relatively steep 800m driveway. It is gravel. It's suitable for most vehicles. Take it reasonably slowly.
Occasionally we have international students or backpackers visiting as we encourage them to have a positive experience in the Lockyer Valley and to meet some locals. You may see a tent or two and hear some tantalising languages.
We want our home to be your home-away-from-home so if you like parties and loud noise, this might not be the best choice for you. We don't promote silence, just the blending of our noises in with the environment as much as possible.
We enjoy our environment where the birds and crickets make the noise :)
Arriving and departing
Please take the driveway carefully at all times and when you get to the plateau, be aware that there are animals around especially early morning, late afternoon and into the evening. Given this, wallabies and kangaroos can be grazing and resting under the trees any time of the day so please take it slowly.
We are a non-smoking household however respectful outside smoking is OK.
To be kind to our native wildlife we'd prefer no pets as we don't have a fenced yard. Feel free to ask if you don't have many options and we can try to work something out.
We have a designated camp fire pit you are welcome to enjoy responsibly if conditions are calm and there are no fire restrictions.
Like many Airbnb hosts, we love to travel and have enjoyed great Airbnb experiences - in Fiji, Hawaii, Indonesia and Australia. We have hosted backpackers from France and Germany so have a few adopted children! We moved to the Lockyer Valley in 2010 after a 12 month adventure overseas. Bob works locally and is in the process of writing a series of books. Lisette keeps very busy volunteering in the local community.
