The rooms are tastefully decorated in classically elegant style with crisp linen and bath towels in the bathroom.( And yes you are welcome to book just one room if you are a couple or single.) Each room has a remote controlled flat screen tv/dvd player. Guests have a private bathroom with hairdryer, toiletries and a separate toilet. There is a kettle, toaster, microwave oven, electric frypan, convection plate and coffee pod machine in the kitchenette alongwith a private patio with a BBQ and outdoor setting should you wish to stay in for dinner. There is also a separate entrance for quests so you can come and go as you please. The entire guest area is closed off from the main part of the house so your privacy is respected.

We are conveniently located a 10/20 min drive from the
theme parks, beaches and hinterland in a quiet leafy suburb away from the hustle and bustle of the glitter strip.
The Gold Coast airport is a 25 min drive away and the closest station is a 5 min drive. A hire car is a must to get around this interesting and picturesque part of Australia.
We are originally from Cape Town and Harare and work in the security and boating industries.

Jenny and Mario are very welcoming people. There standard of accommodation offered was both high standard and a serene setting.
This allowed me to enjoy my stay and visit to the GC a memorable experience.
I visit the GC a few times per year and I have now found my new home away from home
This unit was just like in a glossy magazine, IT was beautiful! Exactly like the picture.
Jenny's eye for detail is wonderful and the little court yard was very relaxing.
Jenny as a host was lovely and welcoming and really made me feel like I was special, not just by here word but also by her actions.
When I arrived and explored this little unit I was pleasantly surprised by all the special food that was catered for me, Gluten Free breakfast cereal and bread, fresh fruit and organic juice and milk as well.
This unit is SPOTTLESSLY clean and modern. There was a hotel style folder of information and safety exit procedures. Jenny thought of every thing.
I felt very safe staying here.
The bed I would class as very firm. The towels supper fluffy and absorbent.
This was like a mini 5 star resort.
Why only 4 stars? it was one of the hottest weeks in QLD and it was very hot and I couldn't cool down. I'm sure in time there will be air-conditioning.
The drive way and garden stairs are very steep but wow what a view this location provides. stunning forest canopy and a creek to walk to, bird life to listen to.
A great experience.
Thank you Jenny and Mario for great conversation and company.
Just brilliant. Perfect, clean, friendly. Kitchen well stocked.
