The property is a fully self-contained downstairs apartment in a near-new two story house on the Toowoomba Escarpment, about 10-15 minutes from the CBD and less than 3 km from Preston Peak Winery and Preston Manor. The hosts live in the upper story.
The secluded location offers panoramic views over Tabletop Mountain and the Lockyer Valley
The price includes bread, cereal, eggs milk etc for guests to prepare in-house breakfast for each morning of their stay, plus coffee, tea and some drinks.

The space
The apartment has a large kitchen/living/dining area with good views. The area has a convertible sofa/bed, 42" TV, good free-to-air reception (Brisbane, not Toowoomba) and Netflix. Kitchen has a solid plate stove and oven, microwave, large refrigerator, capsule and drip percolate coffee makers and all utensils. Basic foodstuffs are provided -bread, milk, eggs and cereal for breakfasts, condiments, sugar, tea, coffee and also some emergency tinned and frozen food for late arrivals or informal meals.

The bedrooms. one with a queen bed and the second with two king singles, have fans and fan heaters. There is also a double sofa bed. The price is for 3 guests with $40 extra for the fourth. The sofa bed can be used to accommodate a 4th guest who wishes to sleep singly or up to two extra guests for $25 each for a total of 6. This would be a separate arrangement between the host and the guest party.

The bathroom has tub and shower and heat lights. An adjacent room has a large wood heater in case of cold nights which will help warm the living area.

The patio has a gas barbecue and outdoor table and chairs.

The only downside is some days of strong easterly winds during summer. There is wind more often than not but the downstairs area is sheltered to a degree. The location is sheltered from winter westerlies.

Guest access
Clothes dryer on patio, washing machine available on request. Clothes line available. Weber BBQ available on request.

Other things to note
The property consists of 80 acres of Great Dividing Range escarpment. Excellent Lockyer Valley views, including Tabletop. A bit of wildlife, wallabies come up to eat the green grass, butcher birds and the odd magpie ready for a handout, and walkers may spot the odd dingo.

4WD tracks, not all that adventurous, are available for use, providing guests are adequately prepared and equipped and have mobile phone contact in case of emergency. The terrain is not lovely rainforest but is ok, lots of grass trees (and rocks and lantana). There are secluded picnic areas, one with water ( from house tanks, probably won't pass any health tests but won't hurt anyone who's lived in the country).

Note that the Toowoomba escarpment can be WINDY. The house is well protected from winter westerlies but does cop the easterlies. Sometimes you can sit on the patio and enjoy the view and sometimes you don't bother to go out there.
