Hello and thanks for reading our description. Here's what we are all about!
We have a beautiful beach inspired 3 bedroom townhouse and your choice of 2 bedrooms to use that would be perfect for someone needing a place to stay for work, going to the airport or a short visit.
We actually have 2 rooms but will only be renting one out at a time so you can choose once you get here! It will also mean there will be less people in the house making it more comfortable for everyone. *Please note we are happy to take families with children please message me.
The Room Includes:
Choice of Queen bed in 1 room or Double bed in the other room which are at the opposite sides of the house - so (depending on the time of year that you are here one room gets the morning sun so for those that like to sleep in the double room is better (it gets the afternoon sun) but you can decide when you get here).
All freshly cleaned bed linen
1 towel for each guest and 2 towels if you stay 3 nights or longer
Drawers and wardrobe space for you luggage
Both rooms have ceiling fans...sorry no air-con in the bedrooms but both have windows for fresh air and we have excellent air conditioning downstairs.
You will have your own private large bathroom.
Awesome hot shower with great water pressure
Large bath if you need to relax
Breakfast is included:
To make it easy we set everything up so when you're ready to eat its all prepared. Breakfast includes:
All the toast you can eat
Tasty toppings - including jam, local honey and vegemite...of course!
Choice of Cereals
Unlimited Tea and Coffee
Fresh seasonal fruit
We have very good wifi and you are welcome to use this. We will give you the access code to use during your stay.
It's a 2 story townhouse that's only 3 years old and we are the first to live here so everything is still fresh, clean and new.
The bedrooms are located upstairs and the living area is downstairs.
Downstairs is the open plan lounge, dining and kitchen area with glass doors that lead out to a small yard. The complex where we live has 2 pools with big lounge chairs and umbrellas that you can use to rest and unwind. It's really beautiful. It's a 2 minute walk to the pool.
It really depends on what you like but we're in a great central location. I've listed below some of the attractions around our area.
Is 5 minutes away - if you need to catch a plane it's only a $12 cab ride or if we're free we'll drop you off.
Brisbane Airport - If you need to fly out of Brisbane its about 1 hour 15mins by car and the same by train which leaves from Varsity Lakes which is a 15min drive from our house.
There is small supermarket for your goodies. It's a 5 minute drive or a larger one with more variety 8-10mins from here. Plus we have the major super markets just over 10mins from home.
Currumbin Wild Life Sanctuary
10 mins away - It's a 30minute walk if you like! You can walk along the beach.
Cafe's - small village cafes - 5 mins - if you love coffee we can recommend a place that serves good coffee.

If you've been traveling and need to wash your clothes you're welcome to use our washing machine and hang your clothes on our line.
We have a spare fridge in our garage that you are welcome to use.
You would enjoy your time more if you have a car as you'll have more freedom to drive around instead of relying on public transport. However, if you don't have a car there is a bus stop only 2 min walk from our front door that will take you down to Coolangatta Shopping area and Tweed heads. The bus to Coolangatta stops all along the beach so you can jump off and head to the water. It runs every 40minutes or you can walk to the beach as its only a 15minute walk away.
If you want to go to Broadbeach or Surfers Paradise or to beautiful Burleigh Heads we can drop you at our local shops (or it's a 20 minute walk) to another bus stop that will take you there. The bus trip along the way is really picturesque as it runs along the coast.
We also have 2 bicycle you can lend (but we have been told the seats are hard! For exploring locally these are fine but medium fitness level would help :)
If you have your own car you can use our drive-way. The area is very safe and quiet.
Check In Time
Depending on the day and the booking & if we have a booking the night before, we should be fairly flexible when it comes to checking in but ideally after 2pm. Please message me first with your date so we can work it out. We'll certainly try to accommodate you as much as we can.
I'm from NZ and my husband is from Mauritius. It's only us and our black Labrador, Franji (ex guide dog who did not pass her test...which was good for us!) that live here. She's an inside dog so if you don't like an excited hello or have any sort of pet allergies this probably isn't the the place for you. We enjoy entertaining but we're not big party people as we prefer to go to bed early & wake up early. But don't get me wrong we're not boring we're just not late night party people so if you want to party at night or go clubbing etc we're not the place to stay :).
My husband works from home and I work in Brisbane 3 days a week and then work from home the other days. Sometimes we are really busy and it can get a little crazy for us but we'll make sure you feel welcome!
Other than that, we're really relaxed and we'll make you feel as welcome as possible but please read our description clearly as other than your bedroom and bathroom all areas of our home are shared with us :D.
So, if you're looking for an Australian experience with a semi young couple (and their friendly dog) who are easy going, kind and funny (that's my husband!) then that's us!
We love airbnb & meeting new people. I have traveled a lot and stayed in other peoples homes and understand the needs of budgeting and having a nice safe, clean place to say. We have the pleasure of having guests from Germany, France, China, Taiwan, Singapore, Switzerland, Canada, India and Brazil and we welcome anyone from any country and will do our best to make it a great experience for you. We are happy to share our local knowledge and help make it a fabulous holiday!
Plus, with the discovery of airbnb we hope it will help us travel more as my husband hasn't been out of the country! So, with all that said, we're excited to share our home. We look forward to meeting you and sharing this beautiful part of Australia, we're sure you love it just like we do!! :D
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to message me.
Guests have access to the whole house. We provide a key so you can come and go as you please.
It really depends on the day and time of the day :). During work hours we tend to be home and weekends we're out and about! However your welcome to use our home as your own whether we are here or not :)
A bus stop is only 2 mins from our door way. It will take you to Coolangatta and Tweed Heads which is heading down south. There is another bus stop on Golden Four Drive which will take you to the theme parks, Surfers Paradise and all the great places up north. Our suggestion for a really enjoyable time is have a car if you can or allow extra traveling time if you don't have a car.
Thank you John, Sam & Franji for making our second home stay in Aussie such a wonderful experience. Couldn't have asked for better hosts. From the first day Sam picked us up from Tugun's bus stop, to the very last day she sent us to the airport early in the morning, she was always full of smiles. Beautiful home they have in Tugun. Cosy bedroom which we chose next to the stairs, clean and spacious bathroom (with clean towels), an affectionate and playful Labrador, it was perfect. They are such lovely people. We didn't drive so we had to walk to the bus stop which was a good 20 mins walk away, but many times Sam and John offered to fetch us out, and even picked us from the bus stop cos it was getting late. It's not the nearest of location to the city area, but the hospitality and generosity from the couple, together with their beautiful house and lovely dog really made up for it. Which host will text you to offer you a ride back to their place because she will be staying up late to do work? I'm guessing not many. Their house will be a very pleasant experience for dog & animal lovers as well!! Once again thank you Sam, John and Franji for being great hosts. We will miss you guys and if you ever dropby Singapore, let us know! We would definitely love to bring you guys around and visit the aquarium together! (: XOXO, Kristeena
What can we say about these guys... they are two of the most friendly, kind and caring people we have ever met! Sam, John and their gorgeous dog Franji were fantastic hosts to us and definitely made us feel at home. Their home is lovely and has all the simple but beautiful touches to make you feel at home. We now have two very good friends after getting to know them and would recommend everyone to stay with these guys. Their house is also very conveniently located to the airport and main beaches which suited us perfectly!
Samantha and John are amazing hosts. They really made us feel at home. They, and their adorable dog, Fran, are wonderful. They are super friendly and so accommodating. Their home is lovely and conveniently located. We were able to get to the beaches in under ten minutes. We loved staying with Samantha and John and would highly recommend their home to others!
I had a lovely time with Sam and John. It was like staying with good friends as they went out of their way to assist me with transport and information. Sam drove me places for interest and to catch early morning transport. This was far more than I expected. Their unit is really lovely and very comfortable and private.
Sam and John are probably one of the best hosts you can ever ask for. Their home is really comfortable and it is a perfect getaway if you are looking for a home away from home, no doubts about that. =D
Will definitely stay with them in the future, do stay in contact!
Sam and John are lovely hosts. They are open to sharing and keen on providing what the guests need. Their home is cleaning, tidy and cozy. We felt comfortable and at ease there. I love their naughty dog, Franji. Thanks for your sharing you beautiful home with us. Yi & Kaihua.
I was moved by Sam and John's warm hospitality. They gave me a lot of advice and help while We had stayed.The days became a great memory of lifetime for my sons and me.Everything exceed my expectations.If I'll be back again someday,I do want to stay there.
Hi Sawako, your review really moved John and I so much. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We wish you could have stayed longer and if you or your boys come to Australia at anytime (even if its in 5,10,20 years) please make sure you contact us again and when you decide to be an Airbnb host I will be happy to help you. Take care of yourselves and keep in contact via email so we can help the boys (and you) to keep up your English. A big hug from us and Franji x
If you want to have a beautiful home with the most beautiful people in a nice area - stay at this place! Samantha and her husband are great people, friendly, open, funny, interesting.... Oh! And off course - the amazing dog! I felt in love with her!
We had such a nice weekend with you guys. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We felt very comfortable at this place and enjoyed the time with the host and the dog! We will definitely come back!
Guys, you are awesome!
great place, great hosts.
This was my first Airbnb experience and I could not have asked for more. Sam and John were wonderful hosts and everything was so above and beyond my expectations. They have a lovely home that is so comfortable. We also asked to extend our stay and Sam and John were kind enough to accommodate us. I'm a bit worried that future experiences won't live up to this one :)
Hey Andrew, thanks for your lovely review! Hope all is well in Philly and don't worry I'm sure you'll have lots of great Airbnb experiences in the future :). Also when we visit America we'll be in contact and if you come back to Oz (Brisbane) lets all catch up for coffee or drink :)
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
