About the Homestay
My name is Tara, my husband's name is Vincent, and we live with our two children (Tyler & Mitchell), in our beautiful home in Worongary, and we would love to be your hosts for your stay. Vincent grew up in Tasmania and I am from Africa (having lived in most Southern African countries). We settled on the Gold Coast as the lifestyle here is out of this world, especially with two children and we consider ourselves lucky every day. We'd love for you to enjoy the Gold Coast as much as we do!
Our home is located in a quiet residential neighbourhood in Worongary (Mudgeeraba). We are conveniently located five minutes from restaurants and shops and 10 minutes to the Robina Town Centre (shopping mall and amazing restaurants), the Robina Hospital, and ten minutes to the beach, with easy access to the M1.
Your accommodation is a clean, comfortable, self-contained suite, which is situated below to our home in a separate building. This gives you complete privacy, and allows to you to come and go as you please. Our home is gated for safety and privacy and you will not see any neighbours at all. Your cottage overlooks a creek, and the Mudgeeraba Showgrounds. The cottage itself consists of a large bedroom with en-suite, a living room and kitchenette (fully functional) and a lounge room/tv room. You have a private outdoor patio with chairs overlooking green lawns and the creek and your own washing line (clothes washer and tumble dryer upstairs with us). We have no pets to bother you. The bedroom has a queen bed and the kitchenette and lounge/tv rooms have a sofa (folding out into an extra bed), computer desk and chair, tv with local stations and netflix, wifi, kettle, toaster, fridge, oven and cooker tops, microwave, ceiling fan and air-conditioning / heating. There are blinds on all windows for your privacy. The en-suite consists of a toilet, sink and shower and walkin closets with mirrors.
We supply towels and bedding, tea, coffee, sugar, and milk. Our kitchenette is fully functional, and grocery shop just minutes down the road. For eating out, Ubereats and Deliveroo deliver to the area, and there are also a number of restaurants nearby.
This is a family home with young children and good neighbours, so we ask guests to please respect our home. We would love to have you to come and stay!

How do I book?
Contact the host about your stay - tell them a little about yourself, why you are staying and ask any questions you have about their homestay. You will be able to book immediately after sending your message.
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. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.
When can I share my contact details?
Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
