It was a beautiful experience living with Valerie & Ted. Loving and caring couple. I totally enjoyed my stay,they were kind and friendly .The room was clean and very well kept,I would love to stay there anytime I visit Gold Coast again.
Such a delightful Homestay experience. Myself and my partner came to QLD from WA and would couldn’t have asked for better hosts than Val and Ted. This was an unforgettable experience for us both and we will forever be grateful for all the help and love we received during our stay. Val and Ted ensured we felt at home and weren’t just our hosts but friends during our stay who we could enjoy a meal with, sit and have a chat or most importantly watch the sport with on the weekends ( and we watched a lot of everything from AFL to Rugby and the Cricket). We will miss seeing their bright and bubbly faces each day and hope to bump into them again in the future.
Valerie and Ted are a lovely couple and the best of hosts you could ask for. They are very accommodating, and always offer you breakfast. tea and coffee in the mornings. They make sure everything is okay with your room and always check on your well being. I have decided to stay on with them as I have really enjoyed my time with them. Highly recommended to stay here !!
This guest awarded the host 4 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Cannot give stars to two difficult hosts.
We are paying for the room and they have offered us a rule that we are not allowed to stay in the room all the time. This was not presented to us prior to our stay. So we could not rest on our day off and tried to force ourselves to go out.
And finally they were unreasonably demanding about the PAYMENT. They threatened to make us pay on a different date than what was stated in the email before we arrived.
I cannot give stars to those who are hurting our humanity and bad-mouthing us with too many rules, to the point of demanding unfair payments.
Valerie and Ted were attentive and friendly hosts. We really enjoyed our stay.

I had a wonderful stay at Valerie & Ted's beautiful home. They looked after me like family.
James and I had a fabulous stay at Valerie and Ted's beautiful home that exceeded all our expectations . They presented us with a lovely English breakfast every morning with homemade bread. The rooms were tastefully decorated and the comfortable bed were covered with bamboo sheets. An awesome experience and would highly recommend this homestay to everyone..
James and Elmarie
Thank you, Valerie and Ted. Excellent hosts, home away from home. Lovely breakfast. Very handy for shops, public transport, bistro's and cafés. Will definately stay again.
