About the Homestay
Hello, I have a modern 3 bedroom Townhouse that is close to the broad
water, public transport and shopping centres. I am a single mother so have just decided to take some time off to slend with my son whilst he is so young.
I like to host guests from all around the world and show off our little piece of paradise here on the Gold Coast.
While the town house is not HUGE by any means it is two story and the bedrooms are spacious, you would have your own bathroom and a balcony that runs off your bedroom.
we have all the mod cons including air-conditioning for summer. There is a lovely little bbq area for all complex residents to use and a nice eating area for weekend get together's.
I hope that we can accommodate some lovely guests at our house as I will enjoy the company whilst being a stay at home Mum

About the Area
Our home backs on to a main road that is great for public transport. we are very close to Harbour Town shopping centre and only 5 mins drive to Runaway Bay Village shopping centre. we are also a short drive to Paradise Point which has lovely eateries and opposite the broad water that is great for walks and swimming in summer. We love to paddle board so if your brave enough to give it a go then we welcome you to take the board and paddle to the broad water along Bayview Street.
we live in a nice area that is close to some wonderful things to see and do.

Katie made us feel welcome from the minute we arrived. We had had a long day traveling and Katie offered to cook us an evenings meal which was not a part of the deal. We virtually had the run of the house. As our plans were to move up to Queensland there was a lot we needed to know Katie was there with all the answers. It was like staying with a family member. Nothing was too much trouble for Katie. In fact, we have bought and moved into a new apartment and Katie is still there and willing to help us in any way she can. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anybody. If you like your own space, privacy, and a relaxed lifestyle. Katies is the place to be. Thank you, Katie, I know we will always be friends.
Katie Anne, and Ari Joseph her little boy, were so pleasant friendly and delightful to stay with. I would stay again when back on Gold Coast. House was so clean, with plenty of privacy too.
I was very satisfied with my stay. Katie was very helpful in setting up the room, laundry, getting around and even finding an emergency dentist.
Room - is OK I guess. Bed, desk, closet, TV+video, balcony facing other units and own bathroom. Unfortunately no A/C and ceiling fan only.
Parking - The housing consists of 36 townhouse units within an area the size of a football field, all available parking spots are usually used by the people who live there. It never was a problem to drive up to the house for loading/unloading, but parking was approx. 200m and roadside only.
Traffic - Everything like gas station, stores, food court etc. is located well within a 5km radius. The M1 motorway, main beach and downtown Gold Coast are ca. 10km away.
Although there are a few bus stops in the area, public transportation doesn't really seem to be an option. Unfortunately there is a lot of traffic going through that area especially during business hours. If you wanna get to/from that place between 1500-1900hrs, calculate at least an additional 30mins for that.
NOTE - It's a household with a toddler and a dog. They don't cause any problems but they are present, just as a reminder for those who don't like kids or pets....
I wouldn't recommend Katie to any other person wanting to stay with her, even though her home is fine.
