Our Neighbourhood

We wouldn't live anywhere else in Brisbane other than New Farm and we are excited to share why we love this suburb so much.

Voted Brisbane's most liveable suburb many times, New Farm is on a historic inner city peninsular only 1.8 kms from the CBD.

South Bank is located on the southern banks of the Brisbane River, its 17 hectares of lush park lands, world-class eateries, stunning river views and hundreds of delightful events all year round make it the perfect place to relax and unwind.

A 10 minute walk away is the famous Riverwalk walkway, where you can stroll 1.8 km to Brisbane City. For the more energetic, you can hire a City Cycle and ride for kilometres to your heart's content.

A 9 minute walk away is the Sydney Street City Cat terminal that will take you into the city.

Ultimate in perfection

  • 5 of 5

This place is truly lovely. I stayed here with my mum for one week over the Christmas/New Year holiday season. It is very spacious, with a well equipped pantry (sugar, coffee, tea, flour etc). Comfy beds and a beautiful garden. The photos are EXACTLY what the place looks like. Sue and Peter are lovely, genuine people. It was a pleasure to have been able to stay. Bus stop right out the front - very easy to get around. Very quiet. Superb.

A perfect spot in a fabulous part of town

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about our stay at 'Bursley' - the warm welcome, the perfectly styled Art Deco interior, the gorgeous gardens, the breakfast provisions, and amazing location in a groovy part of town. The only problem was the length of our stay ... not long enough at all!

Excellent property

We had a very relaxing week in Brisbane that was made all the better by the delightful accommodation. The house was so comfortable and in a terrific position, close to the river, great shops and restaurants. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend staying at Bursley and hope to get back again soon. Thanks Sue for being such a lovely host.

About Sue Hawkins

My husband Peter and I are passionate about home renovation and traveling the world.

We built our stunning beach house, 'Villa Macleay', 20 years ago and we have decided it is now time to start sharing it with other people through Airbnb. Over the last 2 decades, Villa Macleay has been a haven for our children and now our grandchildren.

Likewise, we are excited to announce that we are also now listing our beautifully renovated, art deco New Farm apartments, 'Bursely' and 'Aotea', exclusively on Airbnb. Both apartments are too stunning to keep from the growing Airbnb community and is perfect for business people, visiting families to Brisbane and boarding school parents wanting somewhere more personalised than a hotel when they visit their children for weekends.

We believe in presenting our properties in a style that we would like to stay in ourselves. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

Sue Hawkins purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Sue Hawkins chose New Farm

'Aotea' was built as two adjoining flats in the Art - Deco style in 1936 for Mr William Danaher, and has been in the family ever since. It features stunning original hardwood floors, picture rails, timber paneled doors and some of the original light fittings. This property is not our home, it is listed exclusively as a holiday rental, so if it isn't already booked, you can always consider it yours every time you need to stay in beautiful inner city Brisbane.

What makes this apartment unique

We have added a beautiful relaxed covered courtyard where you can dine, read a book, have a coffee, beer or glass of wine, and while away the hours.
