The perfect escape from the fast-paced city, yet close enough to enjoy it! Overlooking the swimming pool and garden, your beautifully appointed private suite is connected to our home by the alfresco patio that we welcome you to share with us.
Bright and exquisitely decorated, we know you will enjoy your stay with us.
Tadpoles' is always a popular choice amongst Sleeman Centre competitors, and we love having them back time and time again.

Best suited to a couple although two children could easily sleep on the double sofa-bed.

Car necessary - as public transport is not very regular, particularly weekends. We have plenty of off-street parking for your vehicle. Access to and from the airport is very direct along the freeway, avoiding all suburban areas. It takes only 20 minutes to drive there from our home. Linking to the freeway to make daily trips to the Sunshine Coast (1 hour 20) or Gold Coast (50 mins) is very simple and very quick - 3 minutes and you're on the freeway north and south! Guests prefer to staying longer with us and taking themselves on relaxed daily excursions, knowing their luggage and personal possessions are safely locked away with us. We are very close to direct link roads in to Brisbane City and certain times of the day can only take 20 minutes.

Effective air conditioning ensures your comfort throughout our balmy summer months and cooler winter evenings. A centrally positioned ceiling fan gives you the other option of a more soothing breeze.

Tadpoles' is perfectly positioned for those attending events at either the Sleeman Sports' Complex (2 minutes drive away) or the three Belmont Shooting ranges (3 mins drive away).

Both complexes host events throughout every year. International, national and regional swimming/sports competitions are held at these venues, and also include international cycling at the Anna Meares velodrome; and the newly opened ski jump for elite aerial ski jumpers.

We will provide you with delicious and healthy breakfast food left in your suite, so you can help yourself at a time that best suits you. The kitchenette allows you to make tea/coffee and there is also a sandwich maker, toaster, microwave and bar fridge that is stocked with our home-made preserves.

PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS NO OTHER COOKING ALLOWED - a deliberate choice with it being a studio apartment.

You will wake most mornings to the beautiful sounds of the native birds, the kookaburras start around 5am - their laugh is truly infectious. We have quite a flock of birds who think our place is their place, impatiently waiting each morning for their breakfast. We now have a beautiful rainbow lorikeet named Diane who crashed in to our window over two years ago - is absolutely adorable and now part of our family.

We've occasionally had 'Kenny' the Koala arrive up a tree, but it's not often.

One minute drive you will find the Gumdale shopping centre showcasing different cafes/restaurants as well as the local pub which serves up great food. There should be a store there that will meet all your needs (pharmacy, post office, grocery, wine store).

As we live in the main house you will always see us pottering. The property is on 2.5 acres with huge protected gum trees. You will see us enjoying, working and relaxing around the area most days (unless John's surfing). We will always respect your privacy, but if you feel like a chat over a cuppa/wine with us, we always enjoy swapping travel stories.

I pride myself in being a Super Host and encourage any guests to please let me know if there is something they are not happy with. I always strive to provide a clean, welcoming environment for you, and will do my utmost to ensure you will come back in the future, or recommend Tadpoles' Retreat to fellow travellers.

To date the mix of guests that have made Tadpoles' Retreat their home away from home has been truly amazing: 30% are attending either the internationally acclaimed Sleeman Sports Complex or one of the three shooting venues at Belmont. One of our sporting families had one of their 4 sons represent Australia at the Rio Paralympics! To date in one year they have stayed with us seven times. We indeed feel very special.

30% of guests are from countries far and wide. We always try and invite our guests for a dinner (time permitted). We are continually learning about others' cultures and totally enjoy our get togethers.

The other 30% of our guests are people often flying/driving interstate for business and/or pleasure. Tadpoles' Retreat seems perfectly located from the airport with no negotiating through built up areas.

I am Donna and John my husband both in our 60’s, and retired YEAH!!. We love overseas travel, both non-smokers. We enjoy movies, the arts, and dining out. We enjoy meeting fellow travellers and as experienced Airbnb guests we loved the concept so much that we have decided to offer our self-contained studio apartment to fellow travellers. Opening our home to international and local travellers has been one of the best decisions we have ever made. It's amazing the friendships we have formed, and will treasure them for life. How lucky are we??
