Interaction with Guests

We like to know your expected arrival time to handover the key and welcome you to the area. We offer guests privacy.....or we are available if you phone or use the outside buzzer.

The Neighborhood

We love how often guests spot a kangaroo hopping around at the front of the house in the evenings. Drive slowly or walk to the end of the road at night or on dusk and you may see some kangaroos hopping or grazing. If you want to feed the kangaroos, hold the koalas and see the baby animal nursery you would enjoy a day at Paradise Country which is very close. The entrance is between Movieworld and behind Outback Spectacular building - follow the road for about 1 klm into the park.
This is a unique position as you are situated within a comfortable drive to Surfers Paradise, Brisbane and Tamborine Mountain otherwise known as Gold Coast Hinterland. These areas unfold all the great tourist attractions or do it yourself escapes for a wonderful holiday.
The 5 Theme Parks are only 5-10 minutes drive and include Warner Bros Wet N Wild, Outback Spectacular, Movie World, Dreamworld and Paradise Country Farm Tours. Oz Ball is a lot of fun and the kids love it in summer - it is just up the road at Coomera past Dreamworld.
It is only a 40 minute drive to Brisbane or 1 hr on the train. 25 minutes to the famous Surfers Paradise and as the locals say - the worlds best beaches.
This is really good value for a couple or family especially being so close to most of the Gold Coast Theme Parks. If you are planning a trip to Wet N Wild Water Park - (website hidden) the "Express Ticket" where you access 5 rides quicker in your day. Good value and saves time. 3 Day passes to the Theme Parks can be pre purchased on line to plan your trip.
We would recommend at least 3-4 nights stay to take in at least some of the beautiful sights.
We are known for our great hospitality and we aim to make your stay enjoyable and comfortable.
Guest Access
Your visitor car park is on the Left side of the garden facing the house. The flat is accessed through the front door into your private flat. You have your own front door key. We have our own entrance and ensure your complete privacy.

Getting around

You will need your own car however if you are very energetic you could walk to the station - about 2 klms where buses leave for all the Theme Parks or the train goes to Brisbane or Robina. You could catch a taxi home - would only be about $13 one way.

Other Things to Note

It is best if you have your own transport - hire cars are available from the Gold Coast or Brisbane Airport. 3 to 5 night stays are more beneficial as there are so many fun activities.
Shops, supermarkets, restaurants, takeaways, fast food outlets and supermarkets are within 3 minutes drive....or 1 - 2 klms walk

Very nice clean tidy and extremely close the to shopping centre and theme parks. Thanks Nola we had a wonderful stay and look forward to visiting again.

    Thanks Andrea for lovely review - it was a pleasure to meet you and we hope we see you again soon - you are most welcome any time.

  • Was fantastic! Definatly the highlight of our trip going to Nola's~, The themeparks were fantastic and SurfersParadise was a great place to visit too! There was a slight hiccup when we found out how hilly it was and we didn't have a car, But Nola offered to drive us around a little and it was very very helpful! Thankyou Thankyou~ Was the best vacation ever~

    Please be aware that Public transport is not available as stated in our description and you definitely will need your own car. Taxi's are quite expensive and it is up to you to organise your own transport before you arrive.

  • Great hospitality and friendly hosts. Would definitely come back again =)

  • Excellent hosts. Exactly as advertised.

  • The accommodation was even better than described in the listing, it was great to have plenty of space including a second bedroom to spread out all our shopping and clothes, as well as space in the hallway to sit in two comfy armchairs and watch TV and to eat meals. The bed was really comfy, the bathroom was modern and functional including a great bath tub and shower. The aircon worked well and there was enough blankets for the chilly mornings. Nola left a nice supply of butter, jam, milk in the fridge as well as teas and coffees, and it was useful to have a microwave to warm TV dinners after a long day out at the Theme Parks! The accommodation is perfectly placed being 8 minutes drive from Wet n Wild and Movieworld, with Sea World being just 20 minutes away. It’s a short 3 minute drive to the highway and very convenient to have Helensvale Westfield shopping mall. The beachfront is also just 15 minutes away, with Harbour Town Outlet centre, restaurants and cinema 10 minutes away by car. I would definitely come back and stay here again. Nola was a perfect host and nothing was too much trouble for her. This accommodation is perfect for a family of four or two couple traveling together.

  • I was disappointed because the accommodation was represented as an ‘apartment’ or ‘flat’. I therefore assumed that it was of reasonable dimensions with a kitchen that had a sink (not being a small linen cupboard), and also at least a table to sit at to put my laptop on. This accommodation is not an apartment, it is the front door foyer of their house with one guest bedroom and bathroom, sitting room, all passed off as self-contained accommodation. Not for the business traveller, more suited to those wishing to live with a couple in the front room of their house. I will not be back.

    Response from Nola & Laurie:

    The flat is as described - it has in the description that there is NO KITCHEN only tea making facilities. As you can see from the many other positive reviews Richard seems to be our only guest who has complained. Perhaps a backpacker facility would be more suitable for price comparison however I can guarantee the price of the nearest backpacker is $80 for a single room with no private bathroom or cooking facilities. They only offer shared facilities which I don't believe would suit. Good luck in the future finding clean affordable accommodation - we wish you all the best.
