    I stayed for 2 weeks for study. Joy and Ray were very accomodating, they took me to the Uni on my first day, took me food shopping and on the weekend took me to the local markets with them. I really did feel at home during my stay and will return when I am next due to attend for further study

    Hosts were welcoming, helpful and friendly. They have a modern home in a quiet established suburb. It is very clean with good quality furnishings and equipment. Its a home from home and I would have no hesitation in staying there if in the Gold Coast.

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?

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.
