Cat and Ray are the 3 W's: warm, welcoming and wonderful! They are a delightful couple who make you feel at home and cater to all of your needs. They have a lovely house and enjoyed helping us discover the many wonders of Brisbane. We will miss them!

Our stay with Cat and Ray was lovely. We enjoyed two nights in their Boutique Room. The home was spotless and the bed comfortable. Having the luxury of hiring Ray to pick us up from the airport was really nice and so much easier, quicker, (and cheaper!) than taking public transport or a taxi.

The hosts were fantastic! Very respectful of my space while in one of the rooms and offered me a ride a couple of times. I loved the suburban location (quieter at night versus being in the city), but it was a ways away from a bus stop (and on hilly roads...). This added extra thougt into my trip planning, but wasn't too inconvenient. Bottom line: if you're looking to explore the Brisbane area on a budget, book with Cat and Ray. If you'd like something more central/in the city, look elsewhere.

Cat and Ray were wonderful. We stayed with them for a week and enjoyed it so much. Their home is beautiful. I would highly recommend their friendly, comfortable home. Our only problem was getting there, it was a challenge for us Americans, driving on the wrong side of the road.

I can't say enough good things about staying at Ray and Cat's. Originally I booked a room for a couple of days and I loved it so much I extended my stay. Cat and Ray are so friendly and very helpful, not to mention their house is beautiful! Would recommend this to anyone and I hope we can come back to visit!
