Are you seeking a pet friendly home that has been furnished and prepared ready for you to move into? You only need bring your clothes as everthing is supplied for a long or short stay,. We specialise in temporary homes for people requiring mid-term stays. Families whose own home is being renovated or repaired, UQ lecturers on assignment, workers based in Brisbane for an extended contract, executives on relocation. This is a suburban environment, so is not suitable for groups seeking a party venue or holiday makers who will be keeping late hours. Your call or email is always welcome to discuss if Tallywood is right for you.
This boutique block of 3 totally different apartments looks more like a large home from the outside, but is actually 3 separate private abodes. Every apartment was fully renovated in early 2017. The largest has 4 spacious bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a large private outdoor area with BBQ, dining suite with grass area for your children or pets. Totally fenced and secured. There are 2 other apartments both with a queen bedroom and single bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and lounge. Apartment 2 sits high with great views from the deck, The Hacienda is our Spanish surprise. Large apartment with attached private patio, quirky outdoor bath and your own large private fully fenced grassed area, complete with dog kennel.
Do you have a larger group? Apartments 1 and 2 can be joined by a connecting, secure breezeway, offering 6 bedrooms, 2 kitchens and 4 bathrooms.
Located just 3kms (1.8mls) from the CBD this is the perfect position for guests who would like to experience suburban Brisbane living and still have ready access to the city. It is positioned close to Wesley Hospital, Lang Park (Suncorp Stadium for those under 40!) and University of Queensland.
We stayed TALLYWOOD in Auchenflower for three months, after moving to Brisbane. And we absolutely loved it! Having moved around the globe and stayed in many different accommodations, this is the first that it felt like home – for me, two of my kids – Riccardo and Elena and our cat who also arrived from Singapore. The homely feeling, the amazing location – convenient both for the train and amazing runs along the river- the availability of everything one needs at home – made the temporary accommodation absolutely wonderful.

Apartment 3 - The Hacienda is a gem. Quite an unexpected treasure to find this unique apartment, given the more conservative outside. The towering ceilings, solid walls, terra cotta tiles and decor have you transported to a Spanish coastal home. The indoor lounge, dining and kitchen are one space but still feel separate. The queen master bedroom with air conditioning, is off the lounge and the stairs take you to a mezzanine level with a single bedroom or office and the main bathroom.
The highlight of this apartment is undoubtedly the inviting shaded patio. The laundry is under the weber BBQ bench and the timber slatted alcove is home to the surprise outdoor claw foot bath. A great place for an evening relaxing soak, or for the kids to bath on a hot day, or perhaps to act as an esky for a few cold ones? 5 steps lead down from this patio to your private, fully fenced children's play area or dog yard - complete with kennel.

*BEST FIT POLICY: Our minimum stay is 7/14 nights, unless your booking is last minute, adjoins another reservation or fills a gap. Sometimes we can make you an offer under our Best Fit Policy.
You will be given the possible houses available for your dates and if there is any home that does not suit, let us know and we will make a decision as to whether we are in a position to make an offer. In the event your first choice home is not available and the new one offered is less expensive, you will be charged the lower rate. If the home you are offered is more expensive, you will not be charged extra for the upgrade. WIN!
