My wife and I spent a week here last November. The location (in the Gold Coast region of Queensland, south of Brisbane) was ideal, with nearby beaches and creeks with safe swimming and lovely inland walking areas. We parked outside on the safe road and received a friendly greeting from our host, Lucy, who showed us upstairs through our private entrance. We were delighted by the accommodation, a spacious upper floor studio apartment with light modern decor, comfortable furnishings, and a well-equipped kitchen and shower room. It was a delight each morning to step out onto our balcony overlooking a garden fringed with banana trees, and walk down our own outside steps for a wake-up dip in the saltwater pool. Lucy lives below with her husband and charming ten year old daughter, and while we were always welcomed to be sociable and chat with them, we never felt as if we were intruding on their family home. There's a fully equipped shopping centre less than ten minutes' walk away, so we could be self-sufficient with our catering, if we weren't tempted by the plentiful supply of local eateries! A short drive gets you to the Burleigh Beach with its Bohemian entertainments, and Surfers' Paradise is only a bit further away. Sadly, it may be a couple of years before we can travel to that area again, but when we do we hope Lucy is still in business: a true holiday oasis!
