The family reside on the property in the neighboring low set Colonial home and there will be someone at home during the day to assist guests with any questions or offer advice on tourist attractions and restaurants.
We can assist with booking any tours if guests wish.
Please don't hesitate to ask anything either prior or during your stay. We are here to help and please don't think you are a bother. Some guests have stayed and have enjoyed the complete privacy the Studio offers and some like to interact with our family. The choice is yours. We will not disturb your privacy if that is what you prefer, however you are welcome to interact with our family if you wish.

I work from home and have an office underneath the studio, however access is via a separate entrance. Our dog, Holly also lives underneath the Studio in her own separate room. On your arrival, Holly may bark as she hears a strange car, however she quickly becomes used to our guests as they come and go during their stay.
We do not wish to set rules as such but hope that guests respect our property and grounds by taking care of our Studio and that when going out that lights, fans and heater is turned off to conserve energy. We reserve the right to enter the Studio and turn any lights or other appliances off if it is vacant for any length of time. We can turn on the heater for guests on cold nights before they come home so the studio is warm on arrival. Just let us know.
We ask that rubbish is taken out to the bins located on the drive.
Guests are free to use the pool during daylight hours in the summer months (not heated), however we request that due to safety reasons that the pool is not used after dark.
The Studio is non-smoking.
Due to the flooring in the studio which can be damaged easily, the accommodation is not suitable for pets.
The studio is for use of guests only.
We have a biocycle system on the property, therefore please do not put any disinfectants down the sink or toilet. Please check with us if you are not sure.
My husband, Gary and 2 children Emilia and James and our 4 year old Labrador, Holly, live on the fabulous Gold Coast, having emigrated from the UK in 2008.
We love Australia and we have settled well. Our eldest daughter, has just graduated from high school and our youngest started high school last year. We work hard (too hard!), I have a home based business which has been operating for almost 7 years and Gary is a Civil Engineer.
Our home is colonial and decorated to suit our country lifestyle and has a very traditional look with a very English feel.
Having joined Airbnb, we hope to take some time off and travel more in the next few years.
