  • I have two small dogs, are they allowed inside?
    Yes, this is pet-friendly. We ask that guests keep their pets off chairs and out of bedrooms and carpeted areas - unless they are confined to pet bedding. We can provide pet bedding for dogs if required.

Host Review Score

The property is secluded and only 15-20 minutes from the Toowoomba CBD. Guest have privacy and excellent views in a 2 year old dwelling with fully equipped kitchen. The host will provide basic foodstuffs such as milk, bread, eggs, cereals, coffee tea, condiments so guests can prepare breakfast each day, some beer and wine (only cask wine though) and some tinned and frozen food for emergencies or late arrivals. WiFi is reasonably fast and mobile reception is adequate. The property has 80 acres of escarpment land with some 4WD tracks and picnic spots. The country is not pristine rainforest but pleasant enough. Kangaroos and wallabies often feed near the house and walkers may see scrub turkeys, goannas, echidnas and the odd dingo. Koalas have visited the area but only rarely. The nearest neighbours (two houses) are over 70m away and hidden by trees. For 5-6 guest occupancy, the sleeping arrangement is a sofa bed, but there is also a 20' airconditioned caravan with queen bed, tv, shower available as an alternative. The caravan also has refrigerator and kitchen and can take the pressure off if guests feel like a bit more space. No wifi in the caravan though.
I am retired from the oil exploration industry, mostly working overseas and speak passable Spanish. I will generally be available to acquaint the guests with the area and otherwise leave them to themselves. My wife is still working as an accountant and speaks English and Vietnamese. She went to university in Moscow in the 1980's and still understands Russian but doesn't really speak it any more.
Preston is a rural-residential area south of Toowoomba. Most of the residents enjoy a rural lifestyle while commuting to Toowoomba for work. It's about 10 minutes to Kmart and 15-20 minutes to the CBD. In our immediate area there are only 10 other houses, and only 3 on our road. Most of our neighbours are business owners and professionals - there are 3 doctors within 3 kilometres! No trail bikes or noise. The nearest convenience store is a Spar in Hodgsonvale about 10 minutes away, and the nearest Toowoomba supermarkets are about 15 minutes away.
