My experience in Andrea's homestay has been wonderful, she is a very friendly and helpful person.
She has been like a Mother, she has guided me around the area and she has taught me places where I can buy things at a lower price.
As a student I have felt at home, they have made me feel part of their family.
Andrea was lovely and very accomodating. She made me feel very at home with her warm personality.
Absolutely loved the experience.
When I arrived, Andrea helped me with my luggage and showed me to my room which was very lovely. You had the morning sun shine through, and the evening breeze cool you down. I was provided with fresh towels, and made to feel at home instantly.
Andrea is a very savvy shopper with groceries. As I'm not from the Gold Coast, Andrea went out of her way to personally give me a hand with my groceries and showed me many tricks on how to save money and how to buy groceries that were the best value for money. She took me to the cheapest Coles and Woolworths, which is only a 5min drive away.
During my stay I felt very comfortable, and never felt afraid to ask Andrea for any help or advice. She is the best person to go to for some great savings tips, and for cheap yummy meals tips. As someone who has just moved to the GC, with little money in the pocket, I found this extremely useful.
Her pets (1 small dog and 2 cats) are just adorable too, and they're not the kind that pesters, slobbers or barks at you. In fact I don't think I've ever heard her dog bark once. They are super duper cute!!
Don't waste your time looking at any other Homestay's in Gold Coast, Andreas is the best one by far. You feel at home there, a variety of busses are just down the road which go directly to Helensvale translation, or the Griffith University tram stop, and there's an IGA down the road too.
Super central, and definitely cheap accomodation with great value!
We stayed in the house to start with before we were upgraded to the self contained apartment when it became available. This was excellent where we had our own space.
Stayed with my 2 sons aged 9 & 10 and found Andrea and Craig to be very accommodating.
We would return again. Thankyou. x
Friendly family, i experienced the homely feeling and will definately look for them in my next visit to the Gold Coast. Mwahxxxx
Andrea made me feel very welcome and comfortable in her home.A nice quiet area and close to shopping centres and major attractions.
