About the Homestay
My home is in a peaceful little neighourhood with a nearby lake and park, it is a short walk to Burleigh Beach, shops, cafes and restaurants and the main transport hub up and down the Gold Coast Highway. Dreamworld, Seaworld, Movieworld, Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, the casino and lots of shopping centres are an easy bus ride away. My adult son and I enjoy travelling and meeting new people. My son has moved back home and is training to be a teacher, after spending some time in Asia teaching English as a second language. We have a pilates reformer for strengthening exercise. You have a king sized bed, with one side being fully adjustable for your convenience. The bathroom is shared and a hair dryer is provided for your use. You are welcome to use the kitchen, there is a shelf for you in the fridge. Fast wifi and smart lights throughout the home. We have a toy /mini poodle puppy who is really friendly and in training but she does tend to dominate our home. Our home is wheelchair accessible and has access to a disability shower on site. Please message me to discuss mobility requirements if needed.

Please note - we recommended a client cancel a booking made 8 months in advance as on reflection we thought it too onerous to accept a 3 night booking so far in advance. Due to a misunderstanding about the process the booking wasn't cancelled by the client as expected and it wasn't until she alerted me that she'd not received her refund that I cancelled the booking hence the automated message.
