Cat and Ray are a lovely aussie couple, very mature, polite, and nice to have a dinner conversation with. My girlfriend Mishell and I arrived late at night and Ray cooked a delicious stew with rice for us. Complimentary breakfast was also provided. The room was clean and tidy and clean towels were offered. The toilet and shower are outside the bedroom but that was not an issue since it was right next to the bedroom. The only downside was that they are located almost an hour from Brisbane center, but they offer to drop you off and pick you up at the bus station which reduces the total trip duration to 40-45 minutes. Overall, a great experience.
Wonderful first experience of Airbnb. I had arranged a pickup from Brisbane Airport. Cat and Ray arrived very promptly and from that moment on could not have been more kind and helpful. The room was perfectly clean and extremely comfortable; the kitchen, very well appointed and with a delicious array of breakfast items. I would wholeheartedly recommend a stay here.
Very welcoming and hospitable, even thou I mucked up the dates! Would definitely stay again, very lovely people. Thanks again.
Cat was an amazing host and made me feel so relaxed. The area was just stunning and I enjoyed the feeling of peace and surrounded by nature. The shops are close and was easy to find the house. Cat is very helpful in providing information I needed to get around. The bed was amazingly comfortable and everthing was clean and neat as a pin. The atmosphere was very serene. Prefect!
We were welcomed into Cat's home by her husband, Ray, and introduced to two other guests in the lounge. The room is exactly as in the picture. The house is very attractive and spacious in a beautiful part of outer Brisbane. The kitchen was well equipped, and we had access to a breakfast bar. The hosts were friendly and engaging without being intrusive. Highly recommended. The price was very affordable, and the other guests were every pleasant.
Clean & tidy with a very comfortable bed. Cat & Roy are nice, friendly & knowledgeable of the area. We shared a delicious meal with them & they were extremely accommodating when we asked to stay an extra night.
Thank you Cat & Roy for sharing your home with us. Highly recommended.
Wir haben uns bei cat und ray sehr wohl gefühlt. Das Haus liegt an einem schönen ort. Das Zimmer war sauber und sehr gemütlich. Für unser erstes Air b&b eine super Erfahrung.
