Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Tim and I own and operate Rylance Hometel Holiday Homes in Brisbane. We have been involved in student, short term and vacation accommodation for nearly 10 years. We have listened to our guests and have bought the perfect property to meet the major 'wish list' criteria. We use VRBO when we travel and have applied everything we value in a vacation home to Lambert House. (See our other homes on VRBO).

Why the Owner Chose Brisbane:
CITY BOUND, RIVER FERRIES and RIVER WALKS Short walk down Lambert St takes you via walkway to Dockside. This is a complex of high rise apartments, which houses some shops an Asian restaurant and cafe. The board walk along the river is extremely popular. There is a free cross river ferry service, leaving every 30 mins to take you to the city centre. Or you can also board Brisbane's famous city cat ferry service that runs from Hamilton on the north side to University of Queensland. You can follow it right around to the Kangaroo Point Cliffs, where a company called River Life, offers kayaking (night and day), abseiling, rock climbing as well as offering Aboriginal cultural experiences. THE GABBA Brisbane's sporting headquarters for Australian Rules Football Lions team and Australian and Queensland cricket. The light posts can be seen from the side deck, and it is within 15min walk. RESTAURANTS AND CAFES A short stroll to numerous eateries, and the quality of food on offer is diverse and high quality. The Sweet Mandarin offers Asian fare from Thai to Chinese and will deliver, the Indian specialists Raj's Palace receives mixed reviews, but we loved the food they delivered. Sushi, Subway and Spoons cafe are all in walking distance as well. HOTELS The famous Story Bridge Hotel is a pleasant 10-15 mins stroll and has multiple eating options and is one of Brisbane's most famous watering holes. The Shaftson Hotel is under 10mins walk and is a pleasant surprise once inside. There is a refurbished beer garden, and several inviting indoor spaces to enjoy a drink or meal. The food is above average for 'pub grub' and there are specials each night EG 2 for one meals on Thursdays. BRISBANE CITY CYCLE Brisbane has an extensive network of bikes you can register to use and travel around Brisbane. You can return the bike to any station and if your trip is under 30mins there is no charge. One station is just 2mins from Lambert House. PARKING There is a lock up garage on site, an

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Simply stunning. If position, luxury and comfort matter, there is no better vacation home in Brisbane. This beautiful home ticks all the boxes. Stylish comfortable furnishings, multiple living spaces, a pool and air conditioning - (in Brisbane these are must-have items). Entertainment areas, several patios and quiet spaces, all make for the perfect holiday experience for the large extended family, or friends who enjoy the finer things. Close to the action of Brisbane City, easy access to Gold and Sunshine Coasts.
