Welcome....here are a few simple house rules:
• We would be grateful if you could please treat our "apartment" with care, just as you would your own home
• Sometimes storms can “come up” very quickly, we recommend closing the bay windows when you go to bed If you are out for the day and a storm threatens, we may need to enter your space to close windows. Please be assured we will respect your privacy and belongings.
• Please no smoking on the premises or grounds
• Please respect our neighbourhood by keeping noise to a minimum – thanks
• Please check that you have not left the lights on when you are out for the day or left deck lights on when you go to bed at night (a courtesy to our neighbours)
• In winter, a heater is provided for use in the living / dining area. For safety reasons, please do not leave the heater running while you are sleeping or away from the apartment.
• Just a reminder: Additional fees apply for the use of the second bedroom
• On the day of checkout - there is no need to make the bed or clean the dishes – the cleaners will take care of everything
Thanks for choosing to stay with us!
Ciao Spike and Joanne
Warm thanks to Joanne and Spike who welcomed us despite severe weather conditions (Marcia cyclone). We could not fully enjoy our experience but we would like to recommend this place if you're planning on visiting Fraser island.
Joanne and Spike were very quick to answer our messages and very caring when we travelled through the cyclone. We will come back for sure!
Spike and Joanne are incredible hosts! The apartment is in an excellent location for anyone looking to stay on the mainland to visit Fraser Island. Spike and Joanne were so helpful with tips on places to eat, drink and visit! I only hope we can make it back again sometime soon!! The shower in the apartment is absolutely wonderful and there was filtered water, fruit, tim tams and milk and coffee all waiting for us in the fridge! Staying with Spike and Joanne made our Nye in Australia unforgettable! We can not thank them enough!!!
Spike and Joanne's place was wonderful. Just a few minutes walk to the beach and cafés. You can see the ocean from the deck! The place was beautifully decorated and the King bed was amazing! Even though there wasn't a kitchen we were able to use the BBQ and it worked out great. Spike and Joanne are such lovely people. We were up late just chatting and having a good time. Perfect place for us to spend our Christmas. Highly recommended and we will hopefully see them when they visit Vancouver!
Hi Lindsay and Dean - so glad you enjoyed your stay and we loved having you here. The apartment does provide a )fridge, microwave, toaster and jug, but as you correctly mention there is no cooktop / oven. We always ensure guests are aware of this privor to accepting their booking and we're so glad the BBQ worked out so well you for both. We are still in the process of organising our trip and hope to include Vancouver - will keep checking (from May 2015) for your Vancouver AirBNB listing. Ciao Spike and Joanne
We thoroughly enjoyed staying in Spike and Joanne's lovely and very comfortable, quiet and luxurious apartment. It's a pity we couldn't stay longer. Situated in a beautiful classic Queensland house but fully renovated and tastefully furnished with only a few minutes walk to the water and marina, it was more perfect than we could've have imagined and even better than the photos provided. Joanne was very helpful with suggestions for activities and dining and provided us with everything we needed for our stay. We would happily stay there again and highly recommend it for the convenience, comfort and value we received.
We enjoyed our stay with Spike and Joanne while we sailed with the whales
There place was interesting, colourful and new. We will recommend them to our friends.
We had a very enjoyable stay with Spike & Joanne, who were friendly, accomodating hosts. Joanne even washed our dishes for us each day, which was an extra holiday bonus that we didn't expect! The apartment was exactly as described/pictured in a very quiet neighbourhood and was spotlessly clean. The limited cooking facilities (as fully described in the listing) is not an issue, as there are several good places to eat within easy walking distance. We would have no hesitation recommending Spike & Joanne's apartment to family & friends and hope to be able to stay with them again next time we are in Hervey Bay. Thanks guys keep up the good work!

We are now semi-retired and enjoying travelling to new places and meeting new people. Where possible we always try to us AirBNB....because it's such a great experience.
When we are back home, we love welcoming people from around the world so they can enjoy our little piece of paradise - the beautiful Hervey Bay and Fraser Island.
We love good food, walking on the beach, swimming in the calm waters of Hervey Bay, and, chilling out with family and friends.
