I am a lecturer at UQ. My house is a very nice cottage in West End, Brisbane's most hip neighborhood. My husband and I rent it during the year. From 15 July 2019 until 31 August 2019, we will be away on sabbatical. We would like to sublet the cottage during those 1. 5 months. The rent price, which includes utilities, is very affordable by West End standards.

The house comes fully furnished, including full equipment in the kitchen (but no dishwasher). The house has been built about 10 years ago so everything in it is still relatively new. The windows have nets and shades. Given the size, up to four people would be comfortable in this house (e. G. , a couple with two children). There is lots of closet space. Cleaning services are not included.

Being on a hill, the house is outside the flood zone, breezy in summer, and with a nice view of the downtown from the porch. It is under a big tree so it stays cooler in summer than other properties. There is a decent size garden with tropical trees. The landlords, a super nice retired couple, live in a separate house on the same property. They travel a lot, but might be around if any help is needed.

In terms of location, the cottage is near everything: shops, restaurants, farmers markets, services, etc. Boundary St, a vibrant shopping precinct is a short 5 min walk away. The CBD, QUT, the Southbank train station, and the Southbank parks are within walking distance. A bus (no. 192) stops around the corner and goes directly to the UQ campus (10 min ride). Another bus (no. 199) stops a few minutes away and goes directly to the QUT campus in the CBD. The ferry, which also goes to UQ and to the CBD, is about 10-15 away on foot. The area is very safe day and night.
