Ready to experience Brisbane’s creative energy and positive vibes? Australia’s third biggest city has a lot to offer travelers. Whether you’re looking for an oasis of calm or a vibrant flat in a trendy area, here is our pick our five favorite Airbnbs in Brisbane.
#1 Pick: Bali-Inspired Guest House With Saltwater Pool
Yes, it’s adjacent to the owner’s house, but you get your own entrance and full access to the stunning, rejuvenating saltwater pool and spa. The furniture is tastefully inspired by Balinese culture, and the breakfast is prepared fresh for the guests.
It’s like your own private luxury spa experience, tucked away in one of the mellower areas of the city. All in all, a fantastic way to retreat from the Brisbane heat after exploring the nearby Crystal Waters area.
#2 Pick: Your Private Retreat in Quiet Ashgrove
Situated only 4km from the CBD, this beautiful house in Ashgrove is an oasis of calm only a stone’s throw from the hustle and bustle of the city.
What could be more relaxing than enjoying breakfast on your private wooden deck while birds chirp overhead? Or a backyard barbeque as you watch the sunset over the nearby “enchanted forest”?
It’s also well connected by buses for quick access to the main Brisbane attractions.
#3 Pick: 19th Floor and Best Location Imaginable
Hard to beat this one bedroom apartment location if you want to access the best the city has to offer.
The Botanical Gardens, Queen Street Mall, and South Bank just a short stroll away – and you’re literally above all the convenience stores you will need during your stay.
This is the heart of the CBD, with easy access to all corners of the city. Oh, and it’s fairly affordable AND spacious, with 63 square meters, which should be enough for 4 guests.
#4 Pick: Trendy Apartment in an Even Trendier Area
Teneriffe is quickly becoming one of Brisbane’s most up-and-coming neighborhoods, as the number of trendy restaurants and microbreweries lining the streets will attest.
Explore this fantastic area on foot or bike along the waterfront, get your fill of fantastic eats, and return to this beautiful, bright, and modern apartment after a long day out.
You’re also near enough the action of the nightlife, without having to worry about excessive noise.
#5 Pick: 230 Year Old Architectural Marvel
And now for something a little different. How about staying in the place that housed all the most prominent Queensland families for more than two centuries?
This stunning mansion is in the heart of Norman Park (a short 100m walk from the ferry and bus), and it will give you plenty of opportunities to sip tea on the veranda, stroll under the heritage listed trees, and generally feel like you’ve stepped inside a beautiful time capsule.
It’s listed as a stately government-protected mansion, but don’t expect a dingy museum-type building: the interior design is modern, bright, and inviting.
