    Ducted air conditioning controlled by host, not by guest, turned off at 1600 for first 3 days until strong protest led to John shouting at me and offering money back if we wanted to go somewhere else until he was hustled away by Sam. Air conditioning ineffective at controlling humidity. TV reception on free to air terrible and unwatchable when windy or wet. John said his guests were mainly from overseas and he provided them with trouble free TV from overseas countries through the computer connection. Rooms and Sam OK but John made our stay tense and unhappy.

    Sam and John are the perfect hosts- always very friendly and ready to help, kind, respectful. The neighbourhood itself is ver quiet, and they offer free access to internet, all the kitchen is available for use at any time, and the sauna is a very valuable asset too. When I'll be coming back again from Canada, it will be for me a great pleasure to be hosted by them. Many thanks for the Homestay team for offering such quality services to travellers from all over the world

    Very helpful hosts. John and Mary shared much of their personal experiences with us. They also gave good suggestions for places of interest to go to.
    Their home is very clean, room is cosy and walking distance to town centre.
    If you like kimchi, Mary makes delicious kimchi.

    John and Sam were simply wonderful hosts and basically very nice people. Ever careing, they were always there to ensure that my stay was comfortable. The accomodation was very comfortable. It Had the warmth of a home yet all the privacy one would desire in a homestay including a separate side entrance. Would love to stay withy them again when I visit next.

    The stay at Uncle John & Aunty Sam was memorable and more than just a "homestay". The home was not only comfortable but it had a lot of warmth and love in it. It felt like being home. Actually it was being at home. The warmth began at when we drove from Sydney and only arrived at Uncle John's at 1am. Expecting them to sleep but they waited till we arrived. They constantly checked on us throughout the drive and kept reminding us to be safe and to drive carefully. Always making sure we had breakfast before leaving the house, had sufficient water to drink to keep hydrated at all times, ferrying us to places where we had to hop on a bus or the train with a smile. It was always "no worries", to the evening conversations reminising his journey from "the land of the morning calm" to "the land Down under" and insisting on driving us to the airport to send us off right till the clearance. Uncle John & Aunty Sam had not only open their doors of their home but their hearts to whom are not strangers but family to them. The relationship has definately gone beyond being just a paying guest. Ramesh & Kiran

    John and Mary were very friendly hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. I identified a small concern which was rectified within hours. Very welcoming and chatty. As I am a slow walker and the walk to the Robina Town Centre is approx. 2kms from the homestay it took me about 15-20minutes. Buses are very close by. The accommodation itself was more than ample for our needs. Would definitely stay again if in the area.
