The private room is upstairs in a townhouse (bathroom and toilet adjacent) which is near to Southbank, the museums, art galleries and city centre. The latter can be reached on foot (25 minutes) or by bus or City Cat ferry, both of which are less than 10 minutes away.

The space
Downstairs I have a widescreen TV with a Blu-Ray player, and Netflix and Foxtel streaming services. These are available to guests, providing I am not using them. (Guest of course are welcome to watch with me.) I love interacting with guests and am happy to share a glass of beer or wine with them. I speak German and French fluently and am keen to welcome people from these countries so I can practise my languages.

West End, Queensland, Australia

I live in West End, a quiet, leafy suburb with lots of cheap cafes and an alternative, arty vibe.

I’m a single, older guy (70) with a great love of life and people. Languages are my passion, as well as travelling so I can put them into practice. I enjoy cinema, good wines and reading (crime, biographies, historical novels and travel literature). I am also interested in fitness and exercise and walk regularly. Another passion is musical theatre. Being a composer of musicals myself, I follow the latest trend in musicals with intense interest. I am especially interested in the musicals being staged in Germany at present. I have seen a lot of the world, 75 countries and counting! Australia doesn't interest me all that much at this stage. (Perhaps when I am too old travel!) In my former professional life I was a high school music teacher and wrote music text books and musicals for schools. (You can check me in Wikipedia.) For something completely different in my retirement I have now started writing fictional novels. My philosophy of life is to enjoy every moment to the full and always do new things.

During your stay
Since I am retired I have a lot of time to interact with my guests and show them around Brisbane if they wish.
