Great hosts. Very nice granny flat type area, clean, private and new with appliances. Quiet area in Burpengary and short drive to main shopping centre.
Marion and Dan are a nice young working couple. I was the first guest they have accommodated, so it was a new venture for them. I stayed 3 x nights and payed for 4 which was the stated minimum stay period. The accommodation was quite well equipped, however no TV or radio available. No discretionary light breakfast was offered and toiletries were limited, just one (used) bar of soap in the shower. Future guest will probably need their own transport as the nearest public transport (train station) is a good 15 mins walk and nearest shopping centre at least 20 mins walk, which could be an issue in inclement weather conditions. There is no off street parking available. These comments are aimed to assist Marion and Dan to address for any potential future guests.
How do I book?
Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.
When do I pay?

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.
When can I share my contact details?
