New Farm, Queensland, Australia

Neighbourhood overview
We wouldn't live anywhere else in Brisbane other than New Farm and we are excited to share why we love this suburb so much. Voted Brisbane's most liveable suburb many times, New Farm is on a historic inner city peninsular only 1.8 kms from the CBD. In both walking directions from 'Aotea', award winning restaurants and cafes are a mere 5 minutes away. Further afield within a 5 minute drive, New Farm also boasts the James Street Restaurant precinct, Coles and IGA supermarkets, two cinema complexes, the Powerhouse Theatre, the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts, 24 hour gyms, hairdressers, delicious takeaways, and glorious New Farm Park, which hosts a weekly Saturday Farmer's Market and features one of Brisbane's best children's playgrounds. The adjacent suburbs of Teneriffe , Newstead, and Fortitude Valley are also vibrant and full of clubs, bars, high end fashion boutiques, homeware stores and restaurants.

My husband Peter and I are passionate about home renovation and traveling the world. We built our stunning beach house 20 years ago and we have decided it is now time to start sharing it with other people through Airbnb. Over the last 2 decades, Villa Macleay has been a haven for our children and now our grandchildren. Likewise, we are excited to announce that we are also now listing our beautifully renovated, art deco New Farm apartments, 'Bursely' and 'Aotea', exclusively on Airbnb. Both apartments are too stunning to keep from the growing Airbnb community and is perfect for business people, visiting families to Brisbane and boarding school parents wanting somewhere more personalised than a hotel when they visit their children for weekends. We believe in presenting our properties in a style that we would like to stay in ourselves. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

During your stay

Guest interaction
We live nearby so if anything needs attention, it can be done promptly. We can be there for your arrival to greet you and run through 'Aotea's' highlights, or if you prefer privacy, everything will be detailed in the property manual that we will email closer to your booking date. A hard copy will also be available onsite. We are always available to answer any questions leading up to your booking via email. We aim to respond within 24 hours. If you are a really organised traveler and would like to do a Coles or Woolworths online grocery order, I will happily accept delivery, unpack your groceries, and put cold goods in the refrigerator all ready for your arrival.
