The SpaceFully inclusive price! No added cleaning fees.
We offer a non smoking, self contained, self catering apartment, ideal for 2 people, with provision for a third person if needed.
Whilst we love children, we have reluctantly decided that with guest access to the pool, it is more suited to adults only, and currently we are not taking bookings for young families.
The apartment is comprised of a roomy bedroom with queen sized bed and plenty of wardrobe space, large laundry with washer and dryer, (ideal for guests who have been travelling for a while) shower and a separate toilet. The combined living room with dining area, includes a large plasma tv and a kitchenette with fridge, microwave, hot plates, jug, toaster, electric fry pan, coffee plunger, all crockery, cutlery etc. Tea, coffee and milk, are provided. You have your own separate, keyed entrance with direct access to the indoor solar heated pool.
An additional guest can be accommodated in the apartment, the bedding would be a mattress on the floor, provided with all linen at an additional cost of $40 per night
Please note, we live in a split level house set on one acre of land, with the apartment being on the lower level. Part of one of our living areas is directly over the apartment so there may be some noise transference if we are home but we are very conscious of giving our guests privacy and quiet.
We are away a lot so it is unlikely that we would be home for much, if any of your stay and we try to give our guests prior notice of this when they are booking. We have found this has been one of the attractions for our guests, looking for the freedom of a living space on a large area of land, in a quiet area, with minimum interaction with the hosts.
The apartment has 3 exits and we have provided a fire blanket and contact details for medical and dental assistance if you should need them. Guest AccessLarge indoor pool room with day bed, loungers and seating area, ideal for relaxing or eating by the pool. The room has plenty of North facing doors and windows creating a cosy spot for a relaxing drink or meal. The pool has solar heating, some guests choose to swim in winter but we find it too chilly, preferring to swim between October and April.
Plenty of outdoor space as the house and apartment are set on an acre of land.
Feel free to relax in the grounds adjacent to the pool room.
Please note the use of the apartment and pool are limited to the guests only. There is a jacuzzi in the pool room but it has not been listed for guest access and is currently unavailable. Interaction with GuestsWhilst we enjoy meeting new people and are happy to give you recommendations on places to visit, restaurants etc, we are often out enjoying outdoor activities or away for a couple of nights on weekends.
We created this space to offer our guests a chance to take some time out and have some privacy. We have collated a myriad of maps and information on the things to do and places to see in the area and our personal recommendations for you.
The apartment has been set up so you can gain access if we are not home on your arrival, however you will have our contact details and we are only to happy to answer your queries. The NeighborhoodThe mountain consists of 3 areas. Mount Tamborine, North Tamborine, handy for groceries, banking, chemist,wine bar, Irish pub, take away food and coffee shops/restaurants and Eagle Heights for more tourist attractions, art and retail stores, brewery and restaurants. National parks, and a plethora of coffee shops, galleries and wineries are scattered across the mountain between the 3 areas. Visit our award winning distillery, the additional wineries, sample our locally made cheeses at the brewery.
We live at Mount Tamborine, on the southern end of the mountain, in a quiet residential neighbourhood of houses set on a minimum of an acre of land .
After a busy day exploring the mountain or visiting the coast, retreat to the quietness of our neighbourhood. Stroll down to St Bernard Hotel, and have a drink whilst soaking up the fantastic view from the garden, there is even a waterfall in the grounds and a resident St Bernard dog. Our apartment is the perfect location for guests attending weddings at the hotel.
There is a corner store (offering coffee and a take away menu until 6:30pm) and parks just 5 minutes walk away. It is a pleasant 10-15 minute walk to the golf course.
For tasty, local coffee, a 20-25 minute walk will take you to The Coffee Plantation, open from 8:00-4:00 pm weekdays, offering morning and afternoon tea treats and lunch, including gluten free items. Almost next door is a local nursery, also offering coffee, teas and sweet treats.
As you head into North Tamborine and Eagle Heights,(7-8 km) further north on the mountain, stop to watch the hang gliders soaring above the western escarpment, call into Heritage Winery for a tasting and magnificent view or enjoy a traditional polish meal at the The Polish Place and watch hundreds of rainbow lorikeets come to feed.
Our locality gives easy access to all that the Gold Coast has to offer, without the noise and traffic! Pack your bike and golf clubs! Getting AroundFor easy access to the mountain it is best to have the use of a vehicle. There is a door to door bus service available to and from the Brisbane and Gold Coast airports.

Tamborine Mt does not have a reticulated water service. Homes are reliant on their own rainwater storage system, so please be mindful of this. Tamborine has a higher annual rainfall than surrounding areas but in the drier months of June to November, we need to buy water deliveries to top up our tank!
The temperature on the mountain is usually about 5 degrees cooler than the surrounding areas, so enjoy the cooler temperature, particularly in summer but remember to pack something warm. In winter, most restaurants will have a log burning fireplace or reverse cycle air conditioning.
