We had a fantastic stay at Sean & Kim's cosy flat!
Everything was perfect and well thought out, it was spotlessly clean, spacious and had everything we could think of needing.
The space was full of the little touches that have earned this couple their much-deserved superhost status, we really couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay.
It is one of the best places i have ever rented, if you are thinking of staying the night or a week in this area, stay here!
Thank you for the memories :)
SAMMY IS SO CUTE! we had a wonderful stay. the beds were sooooooo fluffy, comfortable and it smelt so so good! host LOVES doing laundry haha, she actually folded all the clothes that we hung out to dry in colour sequence! oh, Sammy is the house dog by the way and really makes the stay complete! there is a huge pool and trampoline which we did not have time to explore. we were also allowed to park in the shade within the house :) a really awesome stay that we enjoyed. just a pity it wasnt any longer!
We had a wonderful stay with Sean & Kim! It's a great location within walking distance to the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, the beach and also a few shops, including two small supermarkets. It was a $16.70 cab fare from the airport. We rented a car & the entire Gold Coast is easy to get to as it's too easy to get to the main road & highway. As for the apartment, the beds were comfortable and the kitchen was good for preparing meals. The kids loved the trampoline, the friendly dog, Sammy & the visiting Lorikeets ( which will eat bread out of your hand - just mind your fingers!). The pool is beautiful but we didn't have a chance to jump in.Sean & Kim & their kids are warm & friendly, and we kept the dividing door open as much as possible. If you're not into socializing, that's fine too as they are not intrusive at all. It is a quiet house (we weren't bothered by noise from their part of the house at all). I highly recommend this booking, especially for families. It really felt like staying with friends. We will be coming back!
This was a lovely, well equipped and very comfortable place to stay. The hosts, Kim and Sean were warm, attentive and professional. The bed was especially comfortable and the unit had everything we could need. Thanks for a lovely weekend!
Sean and Kim provided an early check in for us , quick tour which we greatly appreciated. Tim tams on our beds was a really lovely touch. We had everything we could have possibly wanted. Thank you for being such amazing hosts. Definitely, returning if in the area.
My family and I had a great and enjoyable time . Kim and Sean had been a great host !
Will definitely visit Tugun Gold Coast again!
It was a delightful stay! What a shame to be there only for a night. Thanks Sean and Kim for making this stay really homely. Love the thoughful and detailed design of the place e.g the extra power points. The house is located conveniently along the highway towards many places of attractions. Thumbs up!!
