Other Things to Note
We also now require guests to have a Verified ID before they book our listing. Guests without a Verified ID will be guided through the process, which can also be done on Airbnb's new iOS and Android apps.
To get a Verified ID, you're asked to provide a government-issued ID along with an online profile. A Verified ID also requires a profile picture and verified phone number.
Our check in time / bag drop time is on or after 2.00pm. We may be able to arrange some bag drops / check ins earlier (subject to other guests departing/arriving/etc), but we do need to make those arrangements well in advance. So if the 2.00pm check in time isn't your preference, please talk to us about it *before* you make your reservation. And, importantly, check-out time is strictly by 10.00am. Please respect this time for check-in and check-out so that it gives us sufficient time to prepare for any other guests that may be arriving.
We can only accommodate a maximum of 2 guests, and unfortunately will not even consider requests for more then 2 guests. In addition, this house is not child-safe, so please - no children or infants.
We take a lot of pride in our house, and we'd like you to respect the property, so we ask that you'd please not smoke inside the house. We have numerous sheltered, undercover area outside that you're more than welcome and free to use. And it would be appreciated if you would clean up after yourself and keep the rooms you use tidy.
We'll give you keys so you can come and go as you need... Ours it's not the place to host late night parties - but if that's what you're looking for we can certainly point you in the right direction :) And because your bedroom is at the front of the house, and we sleep upstairs, it's unlikely that you'll disturb us with late night / early morning comings and goings.
The laundry is also available for your use during your stay. We have a laundry hanging line / area outside for your clothes to get a natural dry, and we'd prefer if you only used the Dryer if it was raining outside, or something needed to be dried very quickly.
While we're walking distance to the center of Surfers Paradise and the beaches and shops, there is also plenty of parking on the street in front of the house, but please don't park in the driveway, as that's where some of Rom's hairdressing clients park when they're with him during the day. On-street parking is safe, but it is not under-cover.
While we have a pool fence around the pool, the use of the pool and surrounds is at your own risk.
Every experience we've had with AirBnB has been positive - and we've met kind & considerate people, had interesting conversations, and made great new acquaintances & friends. We don't imagine you'll be any different, and we look forward to welcoming you into our home.

Marlon and Rom set the benchmark very high for others. From the warm welcome from Rom, Brandy and Diesel (and later Marlon), to the first impressions of their beautiful home. Every possible detail has been attended to in order to ensure their guests convenience. The room is delightful and a haven of peace and comfort. The house and furnishings are a decorators delight and Rom and Marlon go out of their way to help guests feel relaxed and comfortable in their home. An exceptional home and delightful people. Many thanks to you both for offering such a special enclave on the Gold Coast.
There's nothing I can say that hasn't already been said. Marlon and Rom are genuinely friendly and hospitable; their dogs are adorable and the house is magnificent.
They so effortlessly made me feel as though I were staying with friends.
This will be the first place I look for my next trip.
Thanks again guys!
A little slice of heaven on the Gold Coast! I stayed with Marlon and Rom for a long weekend ahead of a couple of days of work. Everything about the experience was just what I was looking for. The room/bathroom/dressing area are amazing--better than any 5* hotel I've stayed in--and the rest of the house and outdoor space is simply beautiful. Seriously, it even better than the photos! To make things even better, Marlon and Rom are perfect hosts; I felt welcome from the moment I arrived and enjoyed getting to know them during my stay. My only regret is that I couldn't stay longer!
Perfect place to stay to enjoy all the Gold Coast has to offer. Amazing hosts made us feel at home, comfortable and well cared for. Looking forward to staying again soon.
Ruby & Graeme travelled from Brisbane to attend a wedding choosing to stay at the home hosted by Marlon and Rom and we were not disappointed. The home is immaculate, the hosts are both professional and charming. We highly recommend this home as your next accommodation option. A very comfortable and relaxing experience.
