Great host, warm family, lovely accommodation. Marilyn was easy to communicate with, and was really helpful with tips around the area, even had her own travel guides for Gold Coast! :) The flat was clean, new and well maintained. Had all the necessary amenities as listed. Marilyn was kind enough to provide us with simple breakfast ingredients and went out of the way to make us feel welcome. The area was tranquil and beautiful. It was a nice getaway from the busy city. On a clear weather day, you could even see the stars at night. Accessible to the major attractions if you drive or you could just Uber around at a good price as it's centrally located. Or the train station is just a 30min walk away. We had plenty of privacy at the flat too. Would definitely come back to stay if we visit Gold Coast again!

Thank you for being such a wonderful host during our 1 week vacation! Marilyn is extremely helpful and know gold coast really well. She introduced us to different places of interest, delicious food and also provided me with loads of tour guide books, leaflets as well as her own made print out booklet/ file to enable us to go around GC in a much easier way. Lots of efforts were made for the guests to feel comfortable and I love the decos! Really relaxing n everything is in that cosy house! ( exactly the same as the pic) she's really sweet to get extra blankets and pillows for us. Lastly, Marilyn is someone with a big kind heart! I admire people who do volunteering work! Will definitely come back again. :)

I stayed in Marilyn's studio apartment with my son and daughter. It was perfect for us as my son was playing in a football carnival a few minutes walk away. Marilyn's place was an easy drive to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, where we spent a fabulous day, and to the main shops and beaches. We had a great time on the Gold Coast, thank you Marilyn.

Great, comfortable and clean little 'granny flat' with everything you need to stay for several days. It is convenient to all the Gold Coast has to offer. It felt like a home away from home and I have no hesitation in recommending this beautiful little flat.

My motto is "don't delay what can be done today".
I love my volunteer work at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and I enjoy meeting and sharing information on the park's wildlife to visitors very much. Early May 2017 I had an interview to volunteer at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in April 2018. I look forward to the opportunity of volunteering at this huge and exciting sports event.
Up until March 2016 I worked professionally as a vocational education trainer and assessor teaching mainly business skills and assisting people in securing employment.
I enjoy sitting in my garden and love gardening. I enjoy a range of genres of music including country, disco, pop, rock and some classical, I even do karaoke sometimes! I enjoy having a night off cooking and dining out with family and friends. My husband Garry, a retired cabinet maker, and I also like going to see action and science fiction movies particularly on the large VMax screen at Robina Town Centre. Walking for fitness on our hinterland's bush walking tracks is fun but it can be hard yakka but the natural beauty of our hinterland makes it worth the effort.
Garry and I haven't been on many holidays away but we did go to Europe in 2014 and hope to visit New Zealand one day staying with an airbnb host.
I have been an airbnb host for 8 months now and I believe I have been a good host because I have a happy and helpful personality and at the same time respect other people's privacy, space and confidentiality.
