Broadwater Parklands at Southport - 15 mins or 9.5 kms, is a wonderful destination for families, open spaces, netted swimming area (still water) lots of events, boat ramp, great kids playground.

Robina Town Centre Robina - 17km 17 mins

Pacific Fair Broadbeach - 25 mins 18 kms

Night Quarter Markets at Helensvale is 4kms, this is a little gem to go and check out local markets, grab something great to eat, or see a live band.

Gold Coast University Hospital, Gold Coast Private Hospital and Griffith University are only 4.5kms away.

We do recommend a car, we are in an acreage suburban area, public transport is nearby, the light rail which is a 10 minute walk, of a short 1.2km drive. This is an easy way to get you to Surfers Paradise, but your own vehicle gives you the freedom to explore all the Coast has to offer. The light rail also connects to the main rail line at Helensvale which connects to Brisbane.

There is no air conditioning (yet) but the area is very cool as it is downstairs under the main house, set into a hill, is fully tiled, with lots of doors and windows that allow good ventilation. Each bedroom has a ceiling fan, and the main areas have pedestal fans.

There is an oil heater in the loungeroom, and cosy blankets/throws.

After a busy day exploring the Coast or visiting the Theme parks, this is a little oasis to come home to, quiet, relaxing and very private.

We have lived on the Coast for over 25 years and know lots of places that are great to explore, we are also very close to the green behind the gold, the beautiful hinterland.

We live upstairs, we have our own driveway and entrance. We won't invade your privacy, we understand how important it is to relax and how precious holidays are, but saying that we are here if you need us or want to know anything.

Brad and I have traveled quite a bit, and enjoy the simple things in life - good food, good wine and good friends and we enjoy meeting people .

The wildlife here is amazing, the cockatoos, rainbow lorikeets, corellas, and kookaburras visit daily, and the possums visit us (upstairs) at night for their feed of bananas.

If you want to know more please contact me and I will be more than happy to assist you with any enquiries, or better still look forward to meeting you soon. Cheers, Susie

Our favouite Australia memores...

  • 5 of 5

Brad and Susie were exemplary Hosts. Our family arrived from a very long flight from Calgary, Canada. Susie had prepared us a lovely luncheon and helped us find the closest grocery store. She and Brad gave us excellent suggestions for places to eat and sights and beaches to visit. The kids (and us adults as well...) LOVED all of the birds and creatures that visited the property day and night. The beds were super comfy. The kitchen well provisioned. Everything was clean and bright. There was no need for A/C (something we were a bit concerned about as we are Canadian and tend to like our living areas to be on the cooler side). The fans were more than adequate in keeping the areas cool. We treasure our memories that we made at the Gold Coast Bed and Breakfast and have already started saving for a return visit. Wonderful property...even better hosts! We cannot wait to come back!!

Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing holiday home, a real piece of paradise (quiet and peaceful) and so convenient to all that the Gold Coast has to offer. From the beautifully clean and spacious house (the beds were amazingly comfortable) to the gorgeous pool and entertainment area outside, everything was set up to make our stay perfect. Thank you Suzie and Brad for your warm welcome and we so appreciated the extra touches that you have thought of to make your guest's have a great time eg. wine cooling in the fridge on arrival and great selection of dvds. We had a wonderful holiday and it was made all that more amazing because of your hospitality. We will be back and we will definitely be recommending Susie, Brad and their beautiful oasis to our friends. Lorna and Amanda

Owner's Response: Lorna and Amanda, it was a pleasure to host you, and also to meet your son and family. As guests, you were clean, very respectful of the house rules, and lovely to have here. I feel as though you came to us as strangers, and left as friends. I do hope we can host you and other members of your family in the future, it would be an absolute pleasure. Thank you for choosing us, kind regards, Susie and Brad
