Close to beach and shops.

The space

House is renovated with modern kitchen, bathroom and laundry. House has two large verandas with seperate fridge, gas stove and dinning tables.Three entry's to the house gives privacy if person desires one.

Guest access

Bedrooms do have internal locks for privacy and guest will be given entry door keys. We believe in trusting each other so we do not access each other bedrooms without permission. Free wifi, kitchen with utensils, room in the fridge, pantry, tea, caffe, sugar, 2 towels are provided.

Interaction with guests

Always happy to have a chat full of advise, show and tell. Often, I will do a tour around Gold Coast, specially for the longer stays.
Occasional drink and smoking outside is welcome but not partying or inviting friends.
Guest is very welcome to join in to watch Tv.

Other things to note

It's very quiet house and suite students and professionals. My two children are Griffith Uni graduates. For the last 10 years, one room of the house was rented to uni students with full board. I do not want to cook any more so I am giving Airbnb a try.

Relaxed and homely, respecting each other's commitment to work or studies. I am asking for reasonable and sensible usage of water and electricity which are very expensive here. Also we apply quite time after 9pm so each person can relax, study or retire in their own bedroom. Guest is welcome to join to watch tv in the living room.
Dog is older, quite and indoors. So preferably house guests like animals. Otherwise you will have a waging tale welcoming you.
House is not suitable for children.

Anna's place was amazing and Anna was a great host and very helpful in every way. I felt very much at home with Anna and I would highly recommend her place to anyone going on holiday to the Gold Coast. In addition to that Luke made my stay at Anna's place even more memorable. P.S. Luke is the Border Collie ;-)

My first accommodation in Australia was Anna's House. Anna is a honest person and gives helpful advices to every topic what you need. Don't have panic from her Dog, it is one of the cutest Dogs what i ever seen and you will love him,trust me ;) . Furthermore It is a clean House and close to the Grifftih Universtiy and Tram-Station, in Gold Coast it is very important that you living near the Tram-Station or Bus-Station, you will figure out why. If i am the next Time in Gold Coast will be my frist choice Anna, although i stayed only 3 Days.

This place is like a benchmark in the world of airbnb. Anna's beautiful home is the kind of place that reminds you of your grandmother. So much warmth and comfort. I had great alone time and lovely chai get togethers. Backyard is a forest in itself. So serene and comfortable. I highly recommend this magical place. Special thanks to the lovely Luke who received me as a family member. Thank you!

Anna's cottage is the perfect place to stay if you're travelling on a shoestring. location worked just fine for me as I was coming for a conference at Griffith Uni. Any time willing to go to the beach, I'd just take the train/tram which left me a few blocks away.

Like all the other reviewers I had a lovely stay at Anna's. Anna goes out of her way to make you welcome on the Gold Coast. I would defiantly stay again in the future when wanting a clean, quiet room on the Gold Coast.

I stayed with Anna for four nights during my examination period at Uni. I chose Anna's place because I wanted to stay near uni in a quiet and affordable airbnb. Anna's place was all that. In addition, Anna is a very welcoming and warm hearted person who makes sure her guests have whatever they may need. I can warmly recommend the place if you're looking for a peaceful accomodation close to Griffith uni or the university hospital. Thanks again Anna!

I retired professionally and enjoy quiet life at home with large garden and native birds. Never ending work in the garden or cooking nice meals with my daughter is my life.
