We are located on the doorstep of Bond University, within the bustling village of Varsity Lakes and directly on busy Lake Street. We are offering a 30sqm studio bed-sitter for short term rental on the 2nd floor.
As for the studio itself, your access is via a winding common stair to the second level of a mixed use building that houses a local architectural practice and two other residential units. The main room of the open-plan studio is 5m x 6.5m, with a small balcony and is equipped with a queen bed and a sitting area that contains two chairs. The ensuite has a shower (no bath) and enters off of this main room, while the kitchenette and meals area is located at the entry in an adjunct space that adds another 2.2m x 2.6m to the Studio. Please refer to floor plan image.
The Studio has year-round thermal comfort by way of a reverse cycle air conditioner at your control and has cross ventilation, with aluminium plantation style shutters to moderate the light to your liking. The kitchenette is equipped with an under-bench bar refrigerator (no freezer), a convection microwave (no cook top), kettle and single-drawer dishwasher, along with a fold out ironing table. There are twin wardrobes, one with hanging space and the other with soft shelving, along with a flat screen TV.
The unit has a video intercom to the front door and you are able to open the door from the comfort of your room.
Guests will park in the common garage and will access the room via a common winding stair.

The Lake on Lodge is strictly smoke and pet free, including all public and private areas. Failure by the occupant or occupant's visitors to adhere to this policy shall be cause for immediate termination of the Rental Agreement and eviction without refund.
Should you or your guest decide to smoke inside the Studio or any of the common areas, a charge of $200 will be applied to your account. This charge is to meet the cost of cleaning soft furnishings, curtains, carpets, and the replacing of air conditioning filters to restore the room to a smoke free environment, in keeping with the expectations of our non-smoking guests.
Whilst the studios and unit are self contained, please be aware they are part of our home. The acoustic separation between studios is only what you would expect in a house and guests need to mindful that some noise transfer is to be expected. Visitors and residents are required to be respectful and keep noise levels down so as not to disturb others.
Please note the keys you will be provided with at Check In are part of a master keying system. For security reasons, the failure to return any of them by a guest at Check Out will require all keys and locks in the system to be replaced. The cost of this is significant and will be claimed against the guest through airbnb.
We are "empty-nesters" who live on the Gold Coast, Australia and run a small architecture and urban design firm. We have two studios and a small 1 bedroom unit in our house that used to be home to our children whilst they attended University. They have moved on to bigger and better things so we are making the studios and unit available to others to enjoy. We live and work in the same building so are on hand if needed, but as the studios and unit are independent spaces you can come and go as you please.
