We had a great stay! We were only there for one night to attend a nearby wedding but it was fantastic to wake up and hang out with the horses and chickens and enjoy the forest.
Bruce was very welcoming and helpful and the cottage had everything we needed. My only regret is that we didn't stay longer!
Warm and pleasant home. Quiet and peaceful among the trees, yet so close to the beach. Bruce and Gabby are warm people and we had good laughs. Gabby loves her horses. We loved the fresh eggs. Highly recommended.
We had a wonderful short break away at the cottage. Bruce was very welcoming and we felt right at ease. They cottage was lovely and comfortable everything we need was there. Gabby cooked the most delicious meal for us on the Friday evening we enjoyed it very much.
Was wonderful seeing the horses wandering around and the chickens coming for a visit to the cottage. We will be back for sure and bring the children with us next time, the little play room is set up fantastically for them.
Thank you very much for everything.

I had a wonderful stay at Gabby and Bruce's cottage. They were very welcoming people and the cottage was lovely - the photos do not do it justice! I stayed one night along with 5 other friends to host my going away party and it was the perfect place to do so! I will definitely recommend this place to others :)
The property was exactly as listed. It was fresh and modern with a beautiful, serene feel. The views were beautiful and hosts, Gabby and Bruce were friendly.
Jupiters Pan Pacific Masters Games, my big Dressage Horse and I won a Gold Medal and a Bronze Medal, had a great Day!!!
Bruce was waiting on arrival and I met Gabby the next day. Both were extremely lovely and welcoming - great hosts who gave me lots of privacy. The room was lovely, exactly as the photos depicted, bathroom and rest of home spotless. Tallebudgera Valley is just beautiful, the property is very relaxing, lovely and quiet at night and easy to access.
Pleasant and serene setting right beside the forest. Clean and cosy interiors that are easy to adjust to as it all emits a homey ambience. It is also conveniently located mere minutes away from the nearby towns. The owners were very hospitable and really go that extra mile in helping you settle in. Highly recommend this place to any and all travellers passing through. Thanks Bruce and Gabby!

The Gold Coast Retreat B&B was a peaceful get-away in a lovely location in a lush green valley. Conveniently located in the Gold Coast hinterland, close enough the the Coast's attractions, but so quiet, the hustle and bustle could be a hundred miles away.
Gabby & Bruce were very friendly hosts - this was our third AirBnB experience, and as it turned out, we were their third guests. Gabby breeds and trains horses on the property, and there were lots of interesting things that our hosts took us to see on the acres.
The accommodation was in a large newly renovated room with a new bed, an adjacent second bedroom, bathroom and toilet, all freshly renovated and modern. Gabby and Bruce had provided guests with their own fridge stocked with snacks and drinks if required. Both bedrooms share a large elevated private balcony overlooking the bush, with really comfortable chairs.
Our hosts offered dinner and breakfast, and being only partially self-sufficient, we opted for their superb dinner.
Gold Coast Retreat B&B would be an excellent spot to get away from it all, and enjoy a semi-rural but certainly quintessential Queensland experience. It would also be great for visiting tourists who are bored with staying in tourist accommodation and would like to experience something different and relaxing.
We look forward to returning to catch up with Gabby and Bruce when we visit the Coast next.
Gabby and Bruce were extremely warm, thoughtful and hospitable hosts, and such a lovely couple to stay with. My parents and I were honoured to be the first guests staying at their place! As they have recently renovated their place, everything is clean, new and spacious from the bedlinen to the private bathroom. Gabby and Bruce also prepared a fabulous steak / fish dinner for us, which was made twice as good by the awesome dinner company.
We arrived around 6pm when it was already dark and unfortunately didn't get much time to explore the rest of the grounds because we had a morning flight home. It was a beautiful morning view from our balcony though! You will probably need to drive to stay here, but if you're looking for something different from the tired-looking and overpriced accommodation options along the Gold Coast, I would recommend staying with them in a heartbeat. Thanks for everything Gabby and Bruce!
