This was our first time using homestay, and it will be our last. She is not friendly as she describes herself in her profile. As we were having dinner she inspected the stuff we used which made us feel uncomfortable and disrespected. The next morning she said we didn't keep the kitchen tidy, as we didn't put the dishes into the cupboards but she didn't tell us this beforehand and its a different culture, we are used to letting dishes dry in the dish rack.
She is quite aggressive and when we wanted to use the kitchen, as it was mentioned in her homestay profile that we could use it,I tried to ask her kindly but before I could even finish my sentence,she said 'it doesn't mean you can use it all day', which is ridiculous; we came here for a holiday not for cooking lessons, why would we use it all day? We also asked her about the light breakfast she said was provided, she said its tea and coffee...
Comfortable bed and excellent service for allowing me to check in at 10:30 pm.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Pacific Pines with Carole & Anthony. Lovely, happy people, lovely clean house & pool, comfortable bed. Pacific Pines is a nice area near Helensvale, not far from beach. Enjoyed dining at the Pacific Pines Tavern which was 5 mins from Carole's home.
