Studio in Prize Winning Garden on the Edge of The Great Dividing Range

Family-friendly apartments in Toowoomba
“Tu Casa De Colores”

Our spacious studio apartment is located on the northern edge of Toowoomba with breathtaking views over the Great Dividing Range. Situated in a peaceful and established garden awarded numerous prizes in Toowoomba's annual Carnival of Flowers garden competition. It is a tranquil haven of cool, fresh mountain air. It feels like the country but only 4.6km from the city center, it is close to local attractions, amenities, and shopping centres.

There is plenty of private parking.

THE STUDIO APARTMENT

Our studio apartment celebrates fun and vibrancy! It is decorated with colourful artefacts collected from journeys and visitors from around the globe. The spacious apartment, under the main house, has a comfortable queen bed at one end, with a folding bed also available. There is an open plan lounge and dining area, kitchenette and bathroom with shower and toilet.

The kitchenette is equipped with a microwave, small fridge, kettle, toaster, and sandwich maker. (Please note it is not a full kitchen).

In winter (or on very cool summer nights) there is an oil heater and an electric fireplace to keep you warm. The apartment is built into the hillside, so the temperature inside is stable, staying cool in summer and warm in winter.

Though we live in a very safe part of the nation, the studio apartment has its own security system which you can dis-arm when you arrive and re-arm when you leave.

Your confirmation email will provide you with the code for key safe, the security system and the free Wi-Fi.

THE GARDEN

Our large garden features winding paths and secret hideaways to sit and soak up the silence and spectacular range views.

The "Cloud Forest Tree" is just one of the features during the annual Carnival of Flowers garden competition and over 4000 people visit the garden over the 10 days each September.

There is a small outdoor table and chairs on the paved patio outside your front door. there are also seats and benches scattered throughout the garden and a pop-out map behind the front door, so you can enjoy the lish cushiony lawn.

An ever-growing project, the garden beds are full of exotic fruit trees and bird-friendly shrubs. It features flowering gums, a cacti and succulents garden, a collection of gingers, five waterlily ponds, aloes, bromeliads, fern gardens and an 18m cloud-forest canopy tree.

Be engulfed by the sounds of crickets, cicadas, and frogs that change their tune throughout the day. Watch wild bird – finches and superb blue wrens flit among the bushes with cockatoos, lorikeets and king parrots as occasional visitors.

If you’re up early enough, you might catch echidnas or wallabies grazing the lawn or a goanna ambling through - but you have to go looking for the resident amphibians and fish. You are welcome to go spotlighting at night to see bandicoots, nightjars and possums.

And, if you can drag yourself away from your hammock in our private estate, you can visit more than 150 other parks and gardens across Toowoomba!

GUEST ACCESS
You have the whole self-contained studio apartment to yourself with private entry.

It’s just 5 minutes to the city Center- but you feel like your in the bush because if it’s terrific location on the northern edge of the city.

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
Proudly a little different to most properties the garden is large and green. Inside is warm with a lovely shower and all necessities, including an oven which we didn't expect or use as we found local eateries. There is little natural light but good electric lighting. Apartment is larger than the dark antique furniture makes it seem.

David is a very accommodating host and a lovely person in general. The location is superb, only 10 minutes from the city centre, but far enough away to have your own peaceful spot. Highly recommend staying here.
