  • Im very interested in staying at your property but Im concerned about having no airconditioning for 4 nights. How warm do the rooms get?

    Being one block back from the Bay we usually get cooling sea breezes. The King/Twin Room has a sliding door opening directly onto your verandah, facing the Bay. The Queen Room has plantation shutters on the big window. Ceiling fans are in all rooms.

The Friendly Chat B&B offers choices. You book a room and self-cater or you can add breakfast for an additional charge and be pampered. This allows you to use the accommodation in a way that best suits your purpose. With a well-equipped kitchen and indoor and outdoor dining choices, you are easily able to do your own thing. We have worked hard over the past year to make the large garden and retreat a place that gives you the opportunity to relax and unwind, taking advantage of the cooling bay breezes. Off-street undercover parking and free wifi are always available making it a little more like home. Living upstairs, we are available if you need something. or want local knowledge.

We are both retired from teaching, and decided to start a B&B as a hobby/part-time job. Loving travel and the experiences it brings, we thought it would be fun to meet a variety of people travelling to our part of the world, and share stories. During our travels, we have stayed in a range of accommodation. We have often chosen B&Bs because of their uniqueness - that something special that sets them apart from other accommodation. Staying with people who have lots of local knowledge has helped us gain the most out of our stay, whether it be finding best places to eat or visit , or activities to experience. We have lived in the area for nearly 30 years so hopefully, we are able to offer that to you. The amount of interaction you have with us is up to you – if you wish to do your own thing that’s fine; if you seek us out, we are always up for a friendly chat! We have already enjoyed lots of good company, and look forward to welcoming many more guests.

Situated one street back from the shores of Moreton Bay, The Friendly Chat B&B is a great place for enjoying nature. Whether it is the refreshing breezes, watching the migratory birds on the foreshore, walking/jogging or cycling along the pathways or gathering in the parklands for family outings and recreation, this area offers much. It even has its own coffee shop opposite the park now, where you can enjoy breakfasts and light lunches as well! Kayaking is popular on Tingalpa Creek and the Bay, whilst windsurfers and swimmers are often at nearby Wellington Point Reserve. Wellington Point Village is a few minutes’ drive, and offers a diverse range of cafes and restaurants for you to enjoy. For guests who have time to spare, why not take a day trip to North Stradbroke Island where you can enjoy the pristine surfing beaches and lakes on offer? A short train ride to Cleveland linked with a water taxi/barge and bus provide transport for a wonderful day out. If you want a day in the city, you can catch a train from the nearby Thorneside station and spend the day exploring Brisbane, perhaps from the City Cat? Opportunities abound – come and explore this area!
