Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a wonderful stay at Liesbeth and Cees' (not so) Rustic Chalet. We were initially attracted to this location for it's proximity to the theme parks. We knew we'd have a busy few days visiting the parks and really just thought we'd use the accommodation for sleeping. However, we were so pleasantly surprised by how comfortable the Chalet was that we ended up spending time there just relaxing and enjoying the lovely place. We were really impressed by how well appointed the accommodation was - from the Nespresso machine to milk and water in the fridge to gladwrap in the cupboard - so much has been thought of! Liesbeth and Cees were extremely hospitable and friendly without being too much so - the perfect hosts!. We'd recommend fitting in a dinner at their restaurant as well - it was a really great evening. Also - look out for Koalas in the trees - it's an added bonus.

  • Liesbeth and Cees are very nice people, fantastic host.
    Very quiet and nice estate, approx. 55000sqft land, long driveway to the main house, the chalet is about 20m behind the main house. So you will have plenty of privacy.

    Walk in the premises, first we saw a complimentary grapes...

    Kitchen comes with toaster, kettle, microwave, coffee maker, cooking hob and hob. Varieties of tea, coffee capsules, fresh milk, cereals, cold water was ready.

    Things provided:
    Different sizes of pans, pots, plates, bowls and full set of cutlery.
    Salt and pepper.
    Shampoo, shower gel, conditioner, towels.
    Vacuum cleaner, torch light, surface spray., insect repellant..... This is how thoughtful the host can be.

    Bathroom comes with heater and exhaust fan. So you will never get cold after your shower! Hair dryer is also free to use too!

    Living area with comfortable sofa, cable ready TV, PS3, Ipod speaker.
    Mosquito net was installed throughout the unit.

    Laundry area just a few steps walk to the main house. Washer and dryer with detergent provided.

    Location is just 5mins drive to neighborhood mall/ supermarket/ movie world/ wetnwild, 8mins to Harbour town, 15mins to surfer paradise.

    This is absolutely great place to stay, we (my son and I) stayed for 5 days, had total privacy and very much happy to come back again. Host are very nice and if there is anything just let them know. I have nothing to request, everything is in the chalet and is perfect!

  • Liesbeth and Cees are wonderful hosts with a beautiful lovely house!

    Communication with Liesbeth was a breeze and she was easily contactable and quick to reply throughout.

    The cabin house was lovely and the facilities were well equipped and my family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Another big plus is the thoughfulness of the hosts (eg kitchen well stocked with milk and cerals for breakfast)

    Location was good, being close to the theme parks and attractions.

    Liesbeth and Cees also have a lovely Italian restaurant close to where the house is, do check it out.

    Will definitely stay there again if we are back in Gold coast!

    It was nice to have some Dutch conversation with you aswell.
    And thank you to leave the chalet so nice and tidy.
    Hope to host you again!

  • Highly Recommended!

    We had a wonderful time at Liesbeth and Cees Chalet! Two adults and two children, the accommodation was exactly what we were looking for! Literally minutes from the theme parks, and 20 minutes from Surfers Paradise! Supermarkets and takeaway stores are also just a short drive away.

    Our hosts were wonderful, very considerate and friendly. We had some car trouble, and they went over and above what was expected, making enquiries on our behalf!

    The next time we are looking to holiday on the Gold Coast, I hope the chalet is available as we would love to stay again.

    Thank you for choosing us to host you Juanita.
    You were great guests!

  • It was certainly a great stay !
    We stayed for 2 nights and it was such a lovely house !
    it was clean and spacious for 4 people. Especially we loved the pool there and cozy atmosphere of the house. Besides, Liesbeth was so kind and made us so comfortable.
    If you want to travel Gold Coast, i suggest you should rent a car since this house is not close to the CBD, but it is very close to Movie World and quite area.

    Thank you Min for this kind review.
    We are glad that you had a good time and enjoined yourself.
    And thank you for leaving the chalet so nice and tidy.
    Indeed a good suggestion to rent a car ,is so much more handy then the public transfer or pushbikes.
    Hope to host you again another time!

  • Lies' chalet was the perfect place for the four of us. We had an amazing two nights stay there. It was cozy, clean, and perfectly comfortable. The chalet is just a 5mins drive away from the Movie World and 20mins from Surfer Paradise. Lies was a very hospitable host, giving us an early check-in and directions on where to visit nearby.

  • Liesbeth and Cees were the perfect hosts, friendly, gracious and approachable. They respected our privacy and assisted when required. The chalet had everything anyone would need when on holiday, in fact it was like a home away from home. All the theme parks and the outlet shopping centre (Harbourtown) were merely a stone throw away from the chalet, very convenient. Liesbeth was so hospitable when we had a meal at their beautiful restaurant, it felt like we were in a little part of Italy. The food was impeccable. We all had a fantastic time staying at the chalet. Thank you so much for your hospitality Liesbeth and Cees, we will be back to stay, as my granddaughter says 'my holiday house Nanna'.
