Tropical acreage hideaway - peaceful, private a little hidden tropical oasis
About Susie Smith
Brad and I love to meet people, we have travelled abroad, and enjoy all that the world has to offer. We love good food, nice wines, entertaining and showing our guests wonderful hospitality. We have 3 sons, 2 of whom live at home and both are studying at university, the other is working full time after completing his degree. We look forward to meeting our new guests and treating them the way we would like to be treated. We also respect your privacy, we understand how important holidays are. We love our home due to its relaxed feel and also due to its great location we are so close to everything, but feel as though you are miles away at the same time.
Why Susie Smith chose Gaven
Our property is private, luxurious, spacious yet still cosy and very family friendly. The beds and pillows are comfy. The kitchen is huge, there is a large dining room table that seats 10, and 2 new leather lounges. Parking is right at the door, your car is covered by a large shade sail to keep the heat away, and protect it from any storms. The pool is large and deep, surrounded by palms and shaded from the sun, you can sit and relax in the pool cabana, enjoy a cool drink and a meal all while watching the kids in the pool. The pool and cabana are surrounded by tropical gardens, the space is cool and relaxing. The property is close to a state forest, so the birds visit us all the time, cockatoos, rainbow lorikeets, corellas, kookaburras, and the possums pay us a visit at night for their feed of bananas. We provide a cook your own breakfast - cereal, bread or muffins, eggs, juice, fresh milk, jams, honey and vegemite, fresh fruit. This is a little oasis to come home to at the end of a busy day, or just a wonderful place to chill out and relax, whatever the reason, you will find what you need.
What makes this Apartment unique
The privacy, and luxury of the tropical space. We are so close to all the that the Coast has to offer, but in our own little tropical hideaway, we are a short 5 min drive to Wet N Wild, and Movie World. Sea World is a little further around 15-20 mins. We have an abundance of wild life as we are on an acre close to the state forest. We have set up the accommodation to suit families, singles or people working on the Coast. It is very comfortable and I pride myself on the cleanliness of the property. You wont be disappointed. There are security cameras in the outside common areas.

Would highly recommend this accommodation
Alison, thanks for choosing to stay with us and we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay, and that the accommodation suited your needs. We loved meeting you and hope to see you again one day.
This was certainly one of the best family holidays we have had.
Susie and Brad were very gracious, generous and friendly hosts and there was not one thing we needed. They respected our privacy as well as come down and had a drink, good conversation and a laugh. A good sense of humour and good conversation goes along way these days.
We found the accommodation perfect! It was a good holiday, we congregated under the pergola for all meals and spend most days laying by the pool, swimming or lounging on the outdoor furniture reading.
We did not want for anything, everything is catered for and the outdoor area is very tranquil, relaxing and beautiful.
The accommodation itself was very clean, roomy, the kitchen is big and fully serviced, the bedrooms very generous, and the living area is open and bright and another good area to watch movies and relax.
I would strong recommend this accommodation for anyone who is holidaying, passing through or even on business trips – it is quiet, relaxing and private and the hosts are lovely people.
5 stars from us on the accommodation, the outdoor area and pool and the hosts.
We not only made new friends but also had a wonderful holiday.
Thank you Susie and Brad xxx
Sonja, you, Brent, and your family you were fantastic guests. I loved that you enjoyed the property, but also treated it with respect. We thoroughly enjoyed having you stay here, and as you said you came here as guests/strangers and left as friends. We are so happy that you chose to stay with us and enjoyed your holiday so much, we loved being able to share our accommodation/home with you and also have some fun, We will see you in Melbourne in the future. Thanks for your lovely review it is very much appreciated.
Wonderful B&B on the Gold Coast!!
From the first day to the last day, we simply couldn't have found a better stay. Susie was the perfect hostess!! She had a great plate of food for us when we arrived and more goodies in the fridge. She found out how much we loved passion fruit and went and bought some and gifted them to us and even told us where to get more!! Plenty of space and amenities. Sue periodically checked up on us to see if we needed anything and was so helpful in giving us direction to different locations and stores. The grounds were beautiful and luscious. Plenty of beautiful birds cooing and cawing throughout the day as well as 12 beautiful cockatoos on her railing each morning and night! Our B&B was spacious, clean, and very comfortable. It has been refurbished and modernized. Our bedroom and bathroom were very comfortable and spacious.
We spent a very relaxing 3 days with Susie and Brad and left as friends. We would love to stay again on our next trip to Australia!

Phil and Diane, it was a pleasure meeting you both. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your time with us, and I would love to host you again if you are ever back on the Gold Coast. Thanks for you kind words, Cheers, Susie

Our favouite Australia memores...
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
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
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
