Our new home is luxurious with modern amenities. We have a guest area with TV lounge, two queen bedrooms (one with ensuite) and a twin bedroom. Fridge tea/coffee making facilities, crockery, glasses, cutlery etc are available in the guest area, however we are happy for guests to use our kitchen or the barbeque area if required. A selection of home baking/tea/coffee is provided at all times.
Outside dining and relaxing is available in the alfresco area, which leads to our 9.5mt swimming pool. We have golf putting/chipping areas for guest use along with indoor darts. Landscaped gardens with stunning views down the golf course/lake are ideal for relaxing and enjoying the wonderful climate. During their stay guests are welcome to spend the day relaxing round the pool.
We have immense pride in serving our guests with breakfasts catering for all dietary requirements. When operating our Home Stay in New Zealand guests commented positively on the standard of our breakfasts. (see reviews) Breakfasts consist of a wide range of cereals, selection of cold meats/nuts/dried fruits, fresh tropical fruit, yoghurts, breads/croissants/toast, with a wide range of condiments. Fruit juices, fresh fruit smoothies, plunger coffee/tea/herbal teas are available. Breakfast can be enjoyed either outside or in our spacious living/dining area and are available until 10.00am.
Our home is very special to us and we are sure you will enjoy your stay immensely and looking forward to meeting you.
We have pleasure in introducing ourselves:
Martin is from Guildford, Surrey, UK. Joy is Wellington born and bred. We moved to Bribie Island from Wellington New Zealand, at the end of 2015 to be closer to family.
Meeting and getting to know a wide range of people from various countries is a passion of ours. We ran a Home Stay in Wellington, NZ for five years, prior to moving to Bribie Island in November 2015. We met so many wonderful people during this time we are looking forward to having the opportunity to being hosts once again and trust guests will enjoy our company as much as we will enjoy getting to know them. Many of our previous guests either returned or have kept in touch. Our reviews on Trip Advisor and our previous Airbnb listings speak for themselves. We enjoy joining our guests, dependant upon arrival time, for either a refreshing glass of wine/beer (with nibbles) or tea/coffee with homebaking. We understand some guests may prefer to unwind in privacy, therefore we are happy to be available only if required.
Guests are free to use all areas of our home except for the master bedroom.
We have a media room where guests are free to watch their favourite sport/movies etc. Full cooking facilities are available, along with outdoor cooking and dining. All outside areas are available for guests use.
We have off street parking available for three vehicles,. Along with the golf course, there are tennis courts and gym available for guest use. Golf cart hireage is available.
We do not allow smoking inside, however smoking is permitted in all outside areas.
A therapeutic laze in our pool (gazing at the stars) is a great way to unwind at the end of your day, however in fairness to our neighbours, swimming is not permitted after 8.30pm.
Pets are allowed, however not inside our home. The garage is available for pet baskets
We offer discounted rates if more than one bedroom is booked at a time.
We trust guests treat our home as they would their own, as for the duration of their stay it is their home also.
We are located on the 8th Tee at Pacific Harbour Golf Country Club. The area is lush with native foila and at nights we often have kangaroo's saying "hi" through our boundary fence. Sunsets over the surrounding hills is a treat all locals enjoy.
We are approximately 50 minute drive from Brisbane International Airport and the Sunshine Coast. We are happy to collect guests from Brisbane for a small charge. Bribie Island has many beaches which are within a 5-15min drive from our home. Kayaks/motorised bikes, plus many other water activities equipment, are available for hire. Our surf beach at Woorim is a short 15 minute drive.
There are a number of restaurants on the island, with a free shuttle service provided to the local RSL and Bowling Club, both places serving appetizing meals. Australia's 'Number One' pub 'Sandstone Point' is an ideal place to relax and enjoy.
