Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Our stay at Annie's place was really great. Annie and John are really nice and warm people that make you feel right at home. The acommodation was really good. They took us for a drive along the beach and aftewords to a place to see a great sunset.
    Due to timing constraints we didn't make it to Fraser Island, but we intend to go back and we would stay with Annie and John again.

  • We stayed 2 nights at Annie's and John's place and it was just wonderful! The bedroom is nice, clean and tidy. We even had a private bathroom. The neighborhood is quiet and just beautiful. Annie and John are a lovely couple - we had great conversations and cozy evenings on the veranda :) They were very helpful and gave us loads of information and tips for our trip. We booked a Fraser Island Tour and the pick up location was a few minutes walk from Annie's place. Would definitely stay again!

    The wine was delicious!

  • We went to Rainbow beach to relax and enjoy Fraser Island. We couldn't have choice a better place to stay. Anni's place is cozy and she is very kind. We really appreciated her breakfast and her company. I promised to go back and stay longer to enjoy even more the wonderful place in which Annie lives. Thank you a lot for everything!

  • This was our first experience of AirBnB accommodation and we were a little apprehensive about staying in someone else's house for 3 nights but Annie & John were such welcoming and friendly hosts that we cannot recommend them highly enough and will certainly use AirBnB again. They were very helpful, provided us with plenty of useful local information, and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was excellent! We had some great conversations about travel and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thanks.

  • The location of Annie's house is fantastic, a 5 min walk through the Woods to an amazing beach. On the beach we had a nice walk to Rainbow beach. Annie is very attentive, gave us a flashlight for our way back. She cookes a very nice breakfast. We enjoyed our private bathroom with bath. We experienced Annie as being very interested. We liked our conversations about different cultures. Unfortunately we didnt meet her husband John because he was away surfing for a few days. This place is at a perfect location for a fraserisland tour! Pick up next door.

They are very well located for Fraser Island and near the beach. They gave us good suggestions for the rest of our trip in Australia. Thank you very much Annie and John ! :)

  • Annie and John were exceptionally friendly and helpful. We liked the location, on a quiet street surrounded by trees. Room was nice and tidy. Annie cooked a delicious and very healthy breakfast for us early in the morning.
    P.S. Thanks for the lovely book about baby koala.

    Response from Annie:

    Have a good die!

  • 4 of us headed to Rainbow beach for a friends wedding. Staying at Annie's was clean, comfortable, easy parking, awesome swimming pool, scrumptious breakfast and good advice on the must-do tourist attractions in Rainbow beach. We found Annie and her husband so kind and helpful, especially when the 2 girls didn't have a hairdryer for the day of the wedding! We look forward to visiting Rainbow beach again and staying with Annie.

    Response from Annie:
