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.
We love how at times 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 be sure to see kangaroos and koalas you would enjoy a day at Dreamworld or Paradise Country which is very close. The entrance to Paradise Country 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.
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.
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

We felt very welcomed at Nola and Laurie's house. The place was even nicer than the description and there was a host of little details that made you feel right at home.
The place was clean, welcoming, practical and Nola and Laurie were a most friendly couple.
I recommend staying at their place :)
We had a great time spending two nights at this beautiful home.Felt just like home and enjoyed the company of Nola and Laurie very much.Did not feel anything was missing and definitely I would recommend staying there .
Thanks again Nola & Laurie for letting us stay at your beautiful home.
Nola was very welcoming and offered helpful advice about the area. The rooms were nicely furnished and clean and were set up with everything we needed. We were independent of our hosts with a separate entrance and our own kitchen and bathroom. It was an excellent location for doing the theme parks- MovieWorld and Wet'n'Wild were less than 10 minutes away! Also close to a large mall. A very enjoyable stay in a lovely home.
Nola and Laurie were very welcoming and accommodating right from the start. We checked in at 10 am the place was very (immaculate) clean. The place is very close to theme parks, shops and beaches.
Nola and Laurie were there if we needed them, were helpful with tips and places to go etc. we would stay again! Thankyou
Helpful and friendly host. No issues whatsoever. Tidy, clean and as advertised. Would definitely recommend and would stay here again!
I found Nola to be a wonderful host, she was very helpful and very accommodating. Unfortunately I didn't get to meet Laurie but based on my experience with Nola I'm sure he's wonderful too, thanks so much Nola.
Spoke with Nola on the phone to say we couldn't make it on the day we were booked, she was lovely and understanding. In the end we didn't get there at all due to the emergency with a sick dog at home. Emails from Nola demonstrate a kind and caring person, so I'm sure our stay would have been just perfect had we been able to make it. :)
