Staying with Lesley was an absolute amazing time. The convenient location allows you to go to Surfers in less than 10 minutes, while you even have plenty of shops and restaurants around. The apartment itself is breathtaking, with stunning views and including access to a huge pool area. Lesley is a lovely host, that understands perfectly what her guests could need and always has an interesting story to tell! I enjoyed every single day of my stay and I'll definitely come back to the Gold Coast one day!
Lesley was a warm and Inviting host. She is very helpful with all information provided about the local areas. You only need to ask her and she will tell you and provide you with directions. Great room, clean and maintained at a very high standard. Perfect stay for everything I needed.
Lesley made me feel really welcome. Lovely place to stay. Homely feel. Looking forward to another stay there sometime.

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?
Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival.
