Marlon and Rom have everything to make your stay easy, relaxed and welcoming. Great breakfast, nice swimming, beautiful room. Would love to go back!
WOW....... So that's the short version!
If this was a hotel, it would have been 6 stars. Marlon & Rom have a (very envious) home and if we could have cancelled the rest of the holiday and stayed there, we would have. The pics and views just don't do it justice. Marlon & Rom were delightful hosts and made us feel right at home. The whole place was immaculate and attention to detail for any visitor was just brilliant. The access to the Gold Coast was a 10-15 min walk to Surfers Paradise and it's all there. Already trying to work out when we can go back!
Marlon and Rom were warm and generous hosts. The room is massive and the bed is comfortable. The bathroom with the rain shower was a real treat.
The rest of the house is stunning and spacious. The pool area got a good workout while we were there! It's only a short 10-15 minute walk to the beach. Everything we needed for breakfast was left out for us each morning including muffins, croissants, toast and fresh fruit.
We would definitely stay there again.
If you're going to the Gold Coast and looking for somewhere to stay - STOP LOOKING! Marlon and Rom have a beautiful home and really make you feel comfortable and at ease during your stay. They are extremely friendly and wonderful hosts. The guest room is tastefully decorated, spacious and comfortable, as is the rest of their home. We won't be looking past Marlon and Rom's home next time we visit the Coast - They offer everything and anything you could want and more!
My wife and I stayed with marlon and rom for 4 days and have to admit that it was amazing , the mansion was immicalute from the large spacious bedroom to the huge bathroom covered in Italian marble tiles and a double vanity and spa bath , the mansion backs on to a canal that is very quite and tranquil , there are numerous areas to to sit and enjoy the seclusion amongst the tropical gardens that saround the whole property
Marlon and rom are extremely friendly and down to earth guests
And went out of thier way to help us with anything we needed
It's only a 15 minuet walk into surfers paradise or the beach
And there is public transport just around the corner
There is also a great supermarket and gym less than a 5 minuet walk away
We left feeling like our batteries had been recharged because it was such a beautiful well kept secluded house
I would have to say that it would be the best air B and B acomadation on the whole Gold Coast
We will certainly be returning to stay with marlon and rom in the future :)
Fantastic accommodation: An absolute pleasure staying in the large room, with great taste shown by their decor and fittings.
Incredibly warm hosts: Marlon and Rom took the time to let us know about local attractions and eateries. Breakfast was tasty and laid out for us.
We would not hesitate to recommend this home to fellow Airbnb travellers :)
Marlon & Rom made our holiday experience perfect. Our accommodation was amazing , we were supplied breakfast each morning, and they made us feel truly at home in their house. They told us all the best places to go and were always up for a casual drink and a chat. They were two of the lovliest people we have met and cannot wait to go back and stay again with them and their gorgeous two dogs! Thanks once again for making our trip perfect guys and we will definitely be back again :)
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Rom & Marlon. They were very hospitable hosts and extremely friendly to us. There 2 dogs Brandy and Diesel were very playful and affectionate. We felt right as home during our 5 night stay in the Gold Coast. The house was more like a resort and was far better than any hotel accommodation we have ever stayed at! I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend their place to anyone.
Had a great stay with Marlon, Rom, Brandy and Diesel. They made us feel welcome and couldn't have been more helpful. Remembering my birthday with a gift of chocloates was a nice touch and appreciated. We would certainly stay there again.
What a great place for a holiday!
We had a great time in the gold coast, and are really glad we had the chance to stay at Marlon & Rom's place.
They offered a quality of accommodation that was far better than most hotels could offer - the bathroom in our room was particularly amazing!
The entire house is so nice, you could easily have a holiday weekend without leaving the place. If you do head out for an adventure, you'll notice how ideal the house location is - it's easy to get out and about from there.
Finally, the hosts - Marlin and Rom are friendly, generous and accommodating. We were made to feel so welcome, and felt very comfortable walking through their place.
...and of course, their dogs, Diesel and Brandy, complete the experience - very friendly dogs who also do their bit to make you feel welcome.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
