Thank you Margaret for a lovely stay. We're big fans of your recycled and upcycled furniture it's just our style and so cosy. You have such a quiet and relaxing home and we loved being able to cool off in the pool in the afternoon. And we appreciated all your extra touches like bread, milk and fresh fruit. Thanks again :)
Margaret's garden apartment was perfect for our needs and was absolutely beautiful. The apartment was clean, spacious and comfortable and I would highly recommend. Also, Margaret was a wonderful host and a huge help for us, who had just moved to Townsville. She was kind, friendly and always willing to help suggest places to go or see. She made us feel quite welcome and we hope to stay in touch!
I had a great few weeks staying at Margaret's flat. The bed is incredibly comfortable and the flat is clean, homely and has everything you will need for your stay. It is in a great location being walking distance from the restaurants of Palmer street and the CBD.
Margaret is a friendly and thoughtful host. She graciously cooked a few delicious meals for me and being a long term Townsville resident, provided advice and help, making my move here that much smoother.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Margaret's and highly recommend the flat.
We had a very enjoyable stay at Margaret's. The accommodation was great value for the price and was in walking distance to the city/restaurants (15 - 20 min walk). Margaret was really lovely and went above and beyond (she even fed me when I flew in late from work the first night!). Would definitely recommend.
Host Margaret was very helpful in all her communications. The location was a settled quiet suburb, close to town. The apartment was surrounded by flowering trees and shrubs and was quite private. The birdsong was welcome. The apartment was spacious and comfortable with all possible amenities, including a swimming pool a few steps away.
We had a great stay in Margaret's granny flat. Margaret was very friendly and gave us tipps on what to do and where to go. She made sure we enjoyed every minute of our 3 nights in Townsville. The garden house was well equipped and the pool offered nice refreshment after a long day out in the sun. We took the bus to the city center which is only minutes away. However the mix of people that used it was quite unique. When planning to visit Magnetic Island Margaret's granny flat is the perfect place to stay, since the FantaSea ferry terminal is only a 15 minute walk away. Thanks for having us Margaret, we really enjoyed it and hope to be back one day. :)
Margaret had left the keys for us as she was not available upon our arrival, when we met up, she was gracious and informative about the local facilities, which were also written in a booklet for future reference... the cottage apartment was an oasis of tranquility, in a quiet area, surrounded by trees, gardens and palms, and the pool was glorious
Margaret was a gracious and helpful host. The flat is well appointed, airy and clean. The bed is comfy and the pool refreshing! A 20min walk to town, the house is in a historical street and its a safe neighbourhood.
Thanks Margaret I enjoyed my stay and I highly recommend this residence to you.
Granny house rocks!! And Margaret rocks too. Our experience was absolutely amazing. The self contained apartment that Margaret opened up to us is perfect for anyone travelling with their own vehicle. Confortable bed, kitchen with fresh fruit milk and bred for our breakfast and in-suite bathroom. Moreover we enjoyed very much Margaret's company. Chatting with her and her son on our travel experiences and life in Queensland was truly enjoyable and insightful. Thanks Margaret.
Margaret is a wonderful host who makes sure her guests have everything they need. She even supplied a bowl of fruit and put milk in the fridge, a very welcome find after a long journey. This is a fantastic place to stay, in an historic suburb of Townsville, within a 15 minute walk of Ross Creek and the restaurants and bars of Palmer Street and Flinders Street. Her apartment is perfect, nestled under large trees at the bottom of Margaret's garden, which itself is lovely with a broad lawn beside the pool and full of tropical and native plants. It's full of birds and a possum visits every night. It is so cosy, I felt like it was a home from home and I didn't want to leave. I have also gained a great new friend in Margaret!
One of those wonderful people who we instantly connect with. Margaret is just like a family member and we had so much in common. Honor to host her
Margaret was a most delightful guest. She treated our place with respect leaving the bathroom and her room extremely tidy. She was very considerate of our space, that maybe because she to is an airbnb host. We throughly enjoyed her company discovering many things in common, her interest in the arts and travel in particular. We would be very happy to see Margaret return to stay with us any time.
Whenever my mum hosts someone in the granny flat she always go out of her way to make sure they have everything they need. Given the fact that she has traveled to the ends of the earth she knows what good accommodation feels/looks like.
In recent years at Christmas time it is always a competition between my brother, sister and myself to see who gets that granny flat first as it is out of the way of the main house and very private. All necessary amenities are provided and well maintained. After having lived in the main house for 15 years (and often traveling back to Townsville) the location is fantastic for those who wish to get out to the beach, Magnetic Island and the CBD.
