About the Homestay
We are a family of 6, and we live in a huge Queenslander home, complete with a swimming pool, and a great breakfast! We have renovated the front of the house into a huge suite to accommodate a single, a couple or a small family of up to 5 pax.
The Suite has the following :
Queen Bed 5' (sleeps 2)
Bottom bunk double size bed 4' (sleeps 2 small people)
top bunk single sized bed ( sleeps 1)
Aircon in summer
Heater in winter
Warm fleece robes in Winter

Free Wifi (a bit slow in this area)
En-suite bathroom with shower, sink and toilet (newly renovated)
Cupboard for storing your stuff

Daily buffet continental breakfast served from 8-10am each morning. Continental breakfast consists of bread, jams, butter, honey, peanut butter, cereals and muesli/granola, milk, seasonal fruit, juice, seasonal cheese/ yoghurt, coffee and several types of tea.
We offer really comfortable beds and quality sheets, towels (with both a bath towel and a beach towel each per guest), free wifi, aircon in summer, extra fleece blankets in winter. It is expected that you will have lunch and dinner out, probably at the numerous theme parks or beaches.
No washer or dryer in your suite, so we offer one basket of laundry (not more than 7 kg per day) done for you daily. Just leave it with us when you come to the deck for breakfast.
Smoking is allowed, but not inside the house. We have a smoker's corner at the top of our garden.
Our guests usually do their own exploring, and carry a key to go in and out. We are always happy to answer any questions you might have and arrange car rental or theme park tickets for you. We get these at reasonable rates from the local agent.
The house is set in a very central location, we are very near bustling shops and busy beaches, yet, sitting on our deck sipping a cup of coffee, you will feel like you are surrounded by nothing. We are :
15 minutes from the famed Burleigh beach.
10 minutes from Broadbeach
15 minutes from Surfers Paradise
15 minutes from Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary
20 minutes from Seaworld
25 minutes to Movieworld
40 minutes to Tambourine Mountain
5 minutes to Robina Town Centre, largest mall in Gold Coast.
We have a great contact for car rentals as well, $65 per day fro a Nissan Tiida; $100 per day for an MPV (8 seater). Pick up and drop off of vehicle at Gold Coast Airport. All prices inclusive of insurance and gps.

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?
Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival.
