Very friendly and helpful
Dear Ead thanks very much for your hosting. Ead offered me low-cost transport from and to the airport. Her house is very clean and Ead makes sure that she provides all the needs one would desire, whether in food or other amenities like wifi etc. She offers also the laundry. But most of all one is given all the privacy, while one would feel at home and free to move about. My thanks go also to your lovely daughter in law and to your son. I do not hesitate to recommend your house to any prospective visitor to Brisbane. Regards, Anglu, Malta
Ead was incredibly friendly and generous.
I felt really at home and I have made a friend for life.
The stay was very good very friendly,and quiet,thank you so much to ead
Had a lovely time staying with Eas. She was very helpful about the area and had some breakfast food available. It was a comfortable room and I had no problems with showering and making myself breakfast and a cup of tea as well as being able to just relax in my room and watch a little TV when I got home from my course. Just one thing to mention. If it is winter in Qld, don't assume it is going to be always hot as I did and had packed light. The evenings can get quite cold.
Mark and Ead went out of their way to make us feel at home!!!! They are not only amazing hosts but genuine friends. You will not regret staying in their home. They are amazing and we had an amazing time!!!!!
Fantastic hosts, couldn't ask for more :)
