We provide a home away from home so you can have the best holiday possible.
Hello and thanks for reading our description. Here's what we are all about!
**Note if you would like to book for EASTER, please message me. We have a 1 day booking for the Easter Saturday but will be accept bookings for Friday to Monday.
ALSO we will be away for 1 week in May from 13 -21st and our entire home will be available during this time for the same price. If you are looking to book during this time please contact us.
We have a beautiful beach inspired 3 bedroom townhouse and your choice of 2 bedrooms to use that would be perfect for someone needing a place to stay for work, going to the airport or a fabulous holiday.
We actually have 2 rooms but will only be renting "one" out at a time so you can choose which one you prefer when you get here! It will also mean you can have the bathroom to yourself and there will be less people in the house making it more comfortable for everyone. *Please note we are happy to take families with children or a group of up to 4 people. Just email me if you would like to do this.
The Room Includes:
Choice of Queen bed in 1 room or Double bed in the other room which are at the opposite sides of the house - so (depending on the time of year that you are here one room gets the morning sun, so for those that like to sleep-in, the double room is better (it gets the afternoon sun) but you can decide when you get here.
All freshly cleaned bed linen and fluffy feather quilt to keep you warm in winter.
2-4 Pillows - depending on which you are in
1 fresh clean towel for each guest and 2 towels if you stay 3 nights or longer.
Bedside Lamps in both rooms - making the room cosy in the evenings - and you don't have to leave your bed to turn the light off :)
Drawers and large wardrobe space to store your luggage so you have more room.
Both rooms have ceiling fans...sorry no air-con in the bedrooms but both have windows for fresh air and we have excellent air conditioning downstairs.
You will have your own private "hotel style" large bathroom (that's what our guests say when they see it :)
Awesome hot shower with great water pressure
Large, deep bath if you need to relax
Breakfast is included:
To make it easy we set everything before 7am so when you're ready to eat it's all prepared. Breakfast includes:
All the toast you can eat
Tasty toppings - including jam, local honey and vegemite...of course!
Choice of Cereals
Eggs - you can make your own
Juice - normally apple and orange
Unlimited Tea and Coffee
Fresh seasonal fruit
We have very good WiFi that you are welcome to use. We will give you the access code & password during your stay.
It's a 2 story townhouse that's only 4 years old and we are the first to live here so everything is still fresh, clean and new.
The bedrooms & bathrooms are located upstairs and the living area is downstairs.
Downstairs is the open plan lounge, dining and kitchen area with glass doors that lead out to a small yard. The complex where we live has 2 pools with big lounge chairs and umbrellas that you can use to rest and unwind. It's really beautiful. It's a 2 minute walk to the pool.
From experience, we feel that you would enjoy our location more if you have a car. We are only 5-10mins from most things but we're 3km from the main shops which
can be a 15min walk. We do have a bus that's 1 min away which runs every 30mins between 9-4 - its the 768 so you can check it out if you wish. The other bus runs from the Tugun shops, these run more frequently and will take you to Surfers & the theme parks.
So lets begin! Below are some of the attractions around our area:
Gold Coast Airport
Is a 5-7min or 3km away drive away - if you need to catch a cab it's only a $12-$15 cab ride or if we're free we'll drop you off.
Brisbane Airport - If you need to fly out of Brisbane it's 1 hour 20mins by car and the same by train which leaves from Varsity Lakes station which is a 15min drive from our house.
There is small supermarket for your goodies. It's a 5 minute drive or a larger one with more variety 8-10mins from here. Plus we have the major super markets just 10mins from home.
Our local shops are a 5 min drive or 20min walk and have a variety of options such as Hungry Jacks(Australia's Burger King), Subway, Red Rooster, 2 Pizza places, Noodle & Sushi, Fish & Chips and Mexican.
There is are also 3 restaurants at Tugun, Thai, Italian and India.
Currumbin Wild Life Sanctuary
10 min drive or 30minute walk if you like! You can walk along the beach. Plus you can catch the bus which is a 1 mins walk from our house. It will take you directly there and back - pls ask us for bus details.
Cafe's - small village cafes - 5 mins - if you love coffee we can recommend Louren, a place that serves great coffee.
Currumbin - For great stand up paddle boarding for only $10 per hour - 10mins
Surf Clubs - enjoy a meal at the local surf clubs that all located on the beach with amazing views of the ocean and sunset. Currumbin Surf Club has a beautiful veiw.
Note that most have $10 lunch & dinner specials, so you have dinner with an amazing view that would normally cost $$$. It's also great to enjoy a drink and watch the beautiful view. There are at least 6 within 10 minute drive. We'll share our favorites with you.
Also Coolangatta has now got some beautiful restarants...yeah! Including Max Brennar which has fantastic chocolate drinks and deserts..yumbo!
Kirra Beach - 5 mins
Coolangatta Beach - 5-10 mins depending on traffic
Rainbow Bay, Snapper Rocks & D-bah 10mins - stunning beaches that remind me of Hawaii...not that I have been but what I see on TV! If you're a fan of surfing these breaks are some of the best in the world
Surfers Paradise 20 - 25min (depending on traffic)
Dream World, Movie World, Water World - Sea World - 30minutes on the M1
Big Shopping Centres
Harbour Town - Large outlet shopping centre - 30mins
Pacific Fair - 20mins - big shopping centre

Burleigh Heads- Has great cafes and beach (and free outdoor yoga on Saturdays - highly recommend at 8am) - 15mins
Broadbeach for more great restaurants & shopping - 15 mins
Bryon Bay - too much to say about beautiful Byron - 45mins
Bangalow - A fabulous small town only 45 minutes
Excellent Private Hospital
2 mins away - we hope that you don't need to use that but gives you extra peace of mind!
If you've been traveling and need to wash your clothes you're welcome to use our washing machine and hang your clothes on our line.
If you would like to use our kitchen you are most welcome, you can also use all pots etc.
We have a nice clean spare fridge in our garage for guests that you are welcome to use at anytime to keep your drinks and snacks nice and fresh.
As stated before, you will enjoy your time more if you have a car, especially if you are here for more than a couple of days as you'll have more freedom to explore the national parks and go when and where-ever you want instead of relying on public transport (which runs less regularly than major cities!). We can recommend a cheap car hire company.
However, if you don't have a car there is a bus stop only 2 min walk from our front door that will take you down to Coolangatta Shopping area and Tweed heads. The bus to Coolangatta stops all along the beach so you can jump off and head to the water. It runs every 30minutes or you can walk to the beach as it's only a 15minute walk away.
You can also catch the same bus number 768 to Currumbin (its stops at the Wildlife Sanctuary) and to a small local shopping centre.
If you want to go to Broadbeach or Surfers Paradise or to beautiful Burleigh Heads we can drop you at our local shops (or it's a 20 minute walk) to another bus stop that will take you there. The bus trip along the way is really picturesque. Note that we can lend you "GoCards" which are used for all public transport. All you need to do is add credit.
We also have 2 bicycles you can lend (but we have been told the seats are hard!) For exploring locally these are fine but medium fitness level would help.
If you have your own car you can use our drive-way during your stay. The area is very safe and quiet & if you need to store backpacks or large items we can pop them into our garage.
Personalized "Perfect Day" Tours
From experience we have come to learn that some guests are unable to hire a car due to cost, age(insurance is higher when you are under 25), inexperience or not having a license. If this is your situation, depending on the day of your stay I am happy to put together a customised tour for you (based on what you want to see) for a small fee I will take you around on a fun filled local Aussie guided tour of the Gold Coast! It will include "must see" places & activities. The idea is to take out the worry about working out what to do and how to get there & maximising your time here, especially if it's for a short time. Depending on what you want to do full day tours are best & will include a great mix of beautiful sight seeing, local food & fun. This is something new so if you are interested please email me :).
Check In Time
Depending on the day & if we have a booking the previous night, we are flexible with an early check in but ideally after 2pm as it gives us time to prepare everything before your arrival. Please message me if you need to check in early so we can work it out. We'll certainly try to accommodate you as much as we can :).
I'm from NZ and my husband is from Mauritius. It's only us and our black Labrador, Franji (ex guide dog who did not pass her test...which was good for us!) that live here. She's an inside dog so if you don't like an excited hello or have any sort of pet allergies this probably isn't the the place for you. We enjoy entertaining but we're not big party people as we prefer to go to bed early & wake up early. But don't get me wrong we're not boring we're just not late night party people so if you want to party at night or go clubbing etc (or your don't like dogs) we're not the place to stay :).
My husband works from home and I work in Brisbane 3 days a week and then work from home the other days. Sometimes we are really busy and it can get a little crazy for us but we'll make sure you feel welcome!
So, if you're looking for an Australian experience with a semi young couple (and their friendly dog) who are easy going, kind and funny (that's my husband!) then that's us!
We love airbnb & meeting new people. I have traveled a lot and stayed in other peoples homes and understand the needs of budgeting and having a nice safe, clean place to say. We have the pleasure of having guests from China, Germany, France, Taiwan, Singapore, Switzerland, Poland, Japan, USA, Hong Kong, UK Canada, Australia, India and Brazil and we welcome anyone from any country and will do our best to make your stay a great experience. We are happy to share our local knowledge and help make it a fabulous holiday!
Other than that, we're really relaxed and we'll make you feel as welcome as possible but please read our description clearly as other than your bedroom and bathroom all areas of our home are shared with us :D.
So, with all that said, we look forward to meeting you and sharing this beautiful part of Australia, we're sure you love it just like we do!
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to message me. I generally reply within a 3 hours (unless we are asleep :).
Guests have access to the whole house. We provide a key so you can come and go as you please.
It really depends on the day and time of the day :). During work hours we tend to be home and weekends we're out and about! However your welcome to use our home as your own whether we are here or not :)
We're opening our home to you please treat it with respect :).
Parties. Sorry, we're not party people, so if you're after late nights and loud music you'll hate staying with us because we are the total opposite! We're not boring & really love hosting people, we just love early mornings (but you can sleep in of course :)) and going to bed early"ish". If you like these things too we'll be a perfect match :) and we will do our best to ensure you have a wonderful stay with us.
Smoking - We're non smokers and prefer non-smokers but if you do smoke we have a courtyard that you can smoke in.
We live in a very safe quiet area but if we are not home please lock the front and back door when going out and return keys before you leave.
Please place any dishes, cups etc into the dishwasher and towels in the laundry basket in your bathroom.
If you need a lift to the airport please let us know and if we're available we'll take you.
We love to meet new people and will welcome you into our home. We're easy-going, friendly, kind & considerate people, and we don't imagine you'll be any different :D. We look forward to meeting you & sharing your holiday experience :).
