I was staying here for 3 nights and had a good time. It is a nice house and Ian is a friendly and easy-going host.
It was a pleasure staying in Ian's beautiful home. It was a well located hub to visit Tamborine Mtn, Springbrook Natl Park and the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary from. And it was also a very nice change from being on the beach. Lots of parks where we enjoyed the walking paths & there were lots of birds - wonderful sound to wake up to. Ian was a very gracious host, suggesting places we could visit. Thanks Ian, it was great!
I found Creekview to be a very quiet and relaxing place that was very close to the important access points of Nerang and Southport. I spent most of my day working at a tourist facility near Dreamworld and would arrive home in the early evening. Even though the host was busy he would always make a point of being inclusive in the general conversation so I always felt welcome and part of the facility. The house was clean and roomy and the rear terrace provided a great place to listen to the birds ,enjoy nature and wind down from the days busy schedule.
Ian is a great host. He has great knowledge of the area and is most friendly. The house is very nice and well kept. The bed is comfortable.
Great host. Very friendly. Easily makes you feel right at home. Public transport is easy to get around to theme parks and around gold coast.
We had a very stay at Ian's. He is a nice and interesting host, always happy to help and to provide informations or advices. The house is close to Surfers's paradise, 30mns from Brisbane airport, and 20 mns from Coolangatta. You can also reach easliy some of the natural parcs around and enjoy nature walks and amazing sceneries. Really an ideal location and a very nice host!
This place suited my needs perfectly as it's located close to the Metricon Stadium where I had an early morning cycle race.
Ian was very helpful and welcoming. He contacted me a couple of days before to make sure I knew how to get there. The evening I stayed we chatted for about an hour or two - he's a really nice guy. He was very flexible allowing me to conveniently store my bike and car.
The place was clean and the room spacious. Everything was there that I needed including a full kitchen. I didn't use any of the outside of the house but I did notice that it is located next to a scenic river.
Overall, I would't hesitate to stay again. Clean place in a nice location (going in/out to Surfers by bicycle was fine) and a nice helpful host.
Thank you Ian!
