About the Homestay
Our home is a 15-20 minute walk to Griffith University, Gold Coast Hospital and the tram which takes you to Southport, Surfers Paradise, Broadbeach and north to Helensvale station which you can change trains to Brisbane Airport or Brisbane City.
Ray and I are retired and enjoy spending time in our garden. We have chickens as well in a chicken pen at the back and they are mostly quiet. We live in a quiet dead end street so not a lot of traffic which makes it a safe street.
We sometimes we have our sons small dog Princess staying with us.
We have two bedrooms for Homestay so maximum 4 guests stay at any one time. Guests have own bathroom with seperate toilet to us. These are kept clean at all times.
Must like dogs as we have two active dogs. Poodle and a Cavoodle. Both very friendly.

An amazing experience! I felt at home, safe and very comfortable.
Joy and Ray were lovely, easy to talk to friendly hosts that I would love to stay with again.
Hello.Thank you for accepting me though we were running out of time. I feel sorry to have caused you anxiety. You were very good to me for all that. You and your house were comfortable,and I really enjoyed talking with you. I really appreciate your kindness.
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
It was an awesome first time experience. Our host was welcoming and very lovely. Thanks heaps
We really enjoyed our stay. Very lovely hospitable elderly couple. Very friendly. We highly recommend. Nice peaceful quite atmosphere
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
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.
Joy & Ray were the perfect hosts...very welcoming and friendly They helped us find our way around and even gave us a lift to the station. Their home and garden is just lovely!! Great location. We enjoyed chatting with them in the evenings. They even gave us some goodies to take home. Loved our stay.
