This house was the perfect place for our family holiday. Our group ranged from 2 years up to 71 years and everyone was catered for. The house has everything that opens and shuts and much more! The lake was fabulous for the kids. They spent hours in the water - paddling the kayaks, paddle board & sailing the boat . The pool & spa were beautiful too. The floating mat for the lake is on the Christmas wish list for the kids. It really is like a private resort. The house is so well equipped. The owners have thought of everything for every age group. There is foxtel, wii games, board games, sand pit, video games, pool toys, beach toys, bikes as well as all the essentials such as bbq, fully equipped kitchen, air con; & the luxuries such as coffee machine and pizza . The beach and shops are only a short trip away. We had a car, but there is public transport close by and you could walk to the shops if ne
FIND OUT WHAT OTHERS SAID ABOUT THIS HOUSE
“The house is a magnificent mansion on the edge of a beautiful lake. It had everything that we wanted & more. We caught fish and watched our kids play on the many mats, boards & kayaks on the lake which was very safe (no waves) or play in the pool with the large number of pool toys. They have a small sailing boat which was great to teach the kids to sail. We walked the lake & found great places to read both inside & out. If you like to cook on your holidays the kitchen has literally everything!! The house is centrally located and we went to the beach (which is about 5-
?mins?by car & used beach towels, bo?o?gie boards, shelters & more toys that the owner supplies. It was an absolute pleasure to stay at & in our view was better than any 6 or 7 star hotel. It truly sets a high benchmark for holiday homes. We will book again in a heartbeat 11.2016 Hendersons
Thank you for a lovely weekend. The attention to detail in your property is incredible! I often find it stressful going away with 2 little kids. The amount of stuff you need to remember to take is exhausting but at Broadbeach Waterfront we'll know for the next time that we can literally just pack our clothes and toothbrushes and that's all we'll need!
Now that's what I call a holiday!! You certainly had our vote in the stayz competition, we will be back for sure! P.S That ensuite is to die for!!!
Tanya and family aug 2014
The house was amazing and literally had "everything" we needed. We even
took out a couple of days out of Theme Parks just to stay in the house. There was plenty of room and the outdoor facilities were second to none - most of which we did utilise at some time. Fabulous Holiday NS Feb 2014
"The perfect start and finish to a long weekend. Stunning beauty all round as far as the eye can see. An OMG amazing House, with everything you need and a picture perfect outdoor area to relax and let your worries pass you by. This was awesome and a lot of fun was had by all"
Gina and family, march 2013
Thank you so much. We all had such a fabulous time and are very sad to leave. Your incredible provision of toys and playthings has made our stay totally fabulous. Happy birthday to me indeed!
Davidson and extended family 7/10/12
Thank you for a wonderful stay in your beautiful home. Kids had a great time, playing in the pool enjoying all the water activities especially the kayak and paddle boat. We even had a chance to cook some delicious pizzas in your wood fired pizza oven. The endless activities were a great joy to the kids (and us!). Waking up to the beautiful views each morning was breathtaking. Even 10 days was not enough for us. Looking forward to returning next year with our families. And loved the massage too!. Thank you again
L and S families. 25/9/12
This place is God Damn, Hands down, flip a coin AWESOME!!!. Really enjoyed staying in this amazing house for a week and planning to come back with my family in the future. GREAT PLACE!
Michael (NZ) 18/8/12
Wow what a find! Lovely place and so welcoming and relaxing. Perfect place for our families and our teenagers. A wonderful time had by all . We will definitely be back to escape the NZ winter
B&N families New Zealand. 13/7/12
Thanks- we had a wonderful holiday for 9 nights. Our 5 children had the best holiday ever; we used every toy on the lake and swum in the pool every day and the kids were not bored for 1 second. The house was wonderful and we will definitely be back- best holiday ever!
Victorian Family 30/6/12
Back again for our second stay in your superb home. Our relaxing and luxurious 5 days passed here all too fast. We had tried hard to sample all the delights the house offered but even on the last day were finding treasures such as the foot spas!. We didn’t try the pizza oven or the wonderful bread maker as we grannies needed our rest -so we ate out a lot!. This winter showed us how rich the birdlife on the lake is and the surging masses of fish!
Our family enjoyed our stay in this lovely holiday house for 9 days. Thank you for making our holiday easier by providing all things that we could possibly need- everything from all the pool toys in the garage to the kids cutlery and a working printer and lap top and of course loved the coffee machine!
2 Families- Jakarta Indonesia 3/1/2012
We did enjoy every minute of our stay at your house and congratulate you on it all living up to our expectations. We feel we hardly scratched the surface of the possibilities, but we made the most of it in the time available.
The house was beautifully presented and Denise and Dave were there to greet us and orientate us to the surroundings. I called Denise on a few occasions during our stay and she was very helpful.
The children were rapt with all the IT and games indoors and the pool, playthings and lake boats outside. Probably the pool was the most appreciated and the pandora's box of water and inflatable toys in the garage dipped into, but by no means completely explored!
Susann came and gave the 4 "gals" massages which was wonderful. The men were pleased to be able to watch the rugby matches on Fox3, being the semis for the RWC.
The chefs among us did marvellous things on the BBQ and in the kitchen. The coffee machine was made good use of. We ate in mostly and just loved shopping for fresh fruit and vegetables at the Carrara Markets. We also visited the Brickworks for some up-market things, but the local seafood shop opposite Carrara Markets was magic. We did a lot of walking around the area and the kids biked too.
Only suggestion is we would have liked an extra shelf in the pantry for all our groceries! Everything else was fabulous and plenty of china, cutlery and glasses of all description. Thank you.
Gillian (Oct 2011 , NZ)
Holiday paradise... Hope no one else discovers it!
We arrived to be greeted by the lovely Denise who couldn't have been more welcoming or informative. There was plenty of information in the house manual to answer any questions that arose and Margaret was very helpful and quick to follow up anything else for us. There was a well stocked tourist information display which we found handy and enticing.
The children thought the house was a mansion and soon discovered it's many treasures.
Everyone had the space to enjoy their own activities or share a movie together.
It was great having access to a lake free from the possibility of sharks and with some great watersport activities to make use of. The kids were torn between the theme parks and the lake!
We were fortunate to have lovely weather , but could imagine the house and location could keep us all occupied if the weather was not so good. The house was well located to all the things like theme parks, restaurants and shopping . The house was well resourced with all necessary technical equipment with extremely clear instructions that made using individual tv / sound systems etc easy to use. The week passed by too quickly and we hope to return soon.
Thanks Margaret for your hospitality . 10 out of 10!
Tracey and family (Sydney) July 2011
Our families thoroughly enjoyed our 10day stay in this lovely family home. We were so relaxed we didn’t need a massage!. The kids progressed mightily in the pool and it was certainly beneficial therapy for nanny and poppys aches and pains. A dream kitchen. We only ate out 3 times in 10 days! Love to return
Three familes 10/1/2011

THE L AND G FAMILIES NZ, SEPTEMBER 2009
"You will never know how much happiness and pleasure that staying at your home has given us. We are a large family and it is the first time that we were able to stay together and enjoy each others company as due to our size we always have to be split up into different accommodation. I am continuously singing the praises of how wonderful your home is to our friends and basically anyone who will listen! From the moment we walked through the front door we felt at home and were truly blessed to be in such a beautiful house. Our ages ranged from 70yrs to 3 months old and your home catered for everyones needs above our wildest expectations. 5 star! Thank you again and we will be back "
