Other Things to Note
Expect to hear planes, we are close to the airport which is part of our awesome location for international travelers. They run between the hours of 6am and 10 pm.
Please be aware of our check in time, any time after 12 noon and our check out time before 11 am. Under certain circumstances these are flexible - usually during the week day Monday to Friday but on weekends they are not as we have back to back bookings and we must have time to clean in between.
This is a family home so no wild parties. But small gatherings ok.
Smoking is permitted but is strictly outdoors in the many available areas.
Whilst we will allow you to bring your pet, it is STRICTLY OUTDOORS only. We have a dog and a budgie whom ALL live outside.
We have an awesome clothes line in the back yard which harnesses the antibacterial/cleansing properties of the sun to dry your clothes. Please DO NOT use the dryer inside unless we are experiencing extreme rain conditions. Electric clothes dryers not only waste electricity and cause environmental problems, they create dust and can cause allergies for some guests.
We enjoyed our stay at the apartment - it was fantastic! Sean and Kim were so friendly and helpful, guiding us on where to go, directions etc. We loved how there were so many movies as well, and we could have cozy movie nights. Recommended!
Very clean and spacious flatette which had more than enough space for my family (3 adults and 2 kids). Perfect for people that need to be close to the airport or want to head to Currumbin Wildlife park. Superb for kids as well with a nice pool and trampoline in the backyard. Toilet was a little chilly (probably due to the weather) but aside from that all was great.
Sean and Kim were hospitable and made sure everything was arranged nicely, including milk and options for breakfast. Would love to stay here again the next time I'm in the city!
Great place to stay. Kim's really friendly & welcoming. We chilled by the pool & had a relaxing bbq during our 2 nights there.
Kim and Sean were very friendly and helpful. There was a thunderstorm when we arrived and they let us pass through their main living area in our wet clothes and luggage, and even came out despite the rain to offer their help. The rooms themselvws were immaculate and all the required amenities (and more - e.g. DVDs, food supplies, extra towels) were there. Had a very comfortable stay at the spacious house. Thanks for being such great hosts!
Sean and Kim are very nice hosts and their place is lovely. It's near the beach and if you have time to explore, you can find a lot of things nearby.
Sean and Kim were wonderful hosts and most welcoming. We only stayed one night but they made the experience a pleasant one. The place was perfect for us and they had thought of everything. They were most thoughtfull providing little extra touches to make the stay easier and comfortable, milk and bread in the fridge, tea & coffee, the list goes on. The location is great, just a ten min walk to Currumbin beach and gorgeous parks.
I would definitly recommend staying with them and could see myself booking with them in the future.
Thanks again, my Mum loved the experience ; )
Sean and Kim were very nice and really tried to make us feel comfortable in their house. They provided us a lot a information about what to do in the area. The pool is great and the beds as well.
