We have travelled the globe and appreciate it when we can find low cost, clean and comfortable accommodation. We love living in Carina in Brisbane and are delighted to be able to make it available to other family travelers. Pembroke On The Park is like a country farm house close to the city. It has a relaxed magic that you have to experience to understand.

Mixed review.
I haves mixed review. When we first arrived, we noticed the yard was messy with leaves and was a bit overgrown. It looked unkept. When we came inside, it was clean and homey. Our beds were very comfortable, but the comforters seemed slightly stained. But the sheets were nice and white. The shower has a missing door and the water from the shower went everywhere. The bathroom needed a paint, the door was very old and paint chipping. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook, plus more. The outdoor patio was very comfortable, but needed some renovating as well. The entertainment center had many movies to watch, but was very dusty and inside an old cabinet. The dryer worked, but had to use a stick to keep it shut to work. Overall I give this place a 7. Very comfortable and homey, but needs a lot of renovation.
