It is a friendly, nice family. They have a large house where about 10 people from different countries are staying, so if you like the order and cleanliness you should consider doing it yourself.
The house is a bit removed from the city, but you can walk to catch the bus.
Ich habe einen sehr schönen Aufenrhalt hier, das Zimmer ist sauber und mit komfortablen und sehr bequemen Bett. Man findet alles was man braucht und Anna&Frank sind ein sehr herzliches nettes Paar bei dem man sich direkt willkommen fühlt!
Anna and frank made me feel at home and very comfortable with my stay. they looked after my dog peaches very well and offered to pet sit her when I go away for weekends which was a great help. I Definitely recommend booking to stay with them.
Frank and Anna are the kindest couple I've ever met! They helped me a lot to find my job, drive me to buy what I need and offer occasional dinner for all of us during the weekly gathering! I love the room I stayed where is very comfortable and quiet. What is more, I'm a dog lover who was surprised that I could live with two amazingly adorable dogs! Sorry that I have been being busy on work so that I comment late :(
Superbe famille d'accueil ! Anna et Frank vous accueilleront comme un membre de la famille dès votre arrivée. On se sent comme à la maison très vite. Si vous voulez être seul, ils vous laissent tranquilles mais sont toujours là si vous avez besoin de compagnie (ou de quoique ce soit). Parfait pour un début en Australie !
Très bon logement avec une très bonne ambiance dans la maison entre les autres locataires et les hôtes. Idéale pour des Étudiants et des voyageur sur longue durée. Très bonne situation géographique (20 min du centre-ville de Brisbane en bus).
Anna et Frank sont à l'écoute et près à vous aider si vous avez un problème.
Bon souvenir garantie, surtouts si vous aimez les animaux.
Dear Anna and Frank , I'm greatful for your Kindness for all your Support and for your lovable and ample availability . I hope to come back to Australia and see you again . My Sincere Thanks !
They are really nice. They would ask my feeling every time so I could feel I was really at home. Also Anna's foods were always perfect :) If i have a chance to live this house again , I will never hesitate.
I had an awesome time staying with Anna and Frank. There were lots of interesting conversations, but if i needed to go study I was never disturbed. The food was ridiculously good and the room was comfortable. The birds/possums outside were fun to feed and easy to make friends with. The whole time I was there Anna and Frank were easy going and seemed like genuinely nice people.
I was only there a short time but did not want to leave by the end.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
