Staying at Yvonne's place was wonderful. She made me feel so at home. Making suggestions for a side trip, cooking me fabulous breakfasts & even a lift to the airport. After touring for weeks, Yvonne's personal touch made me feel quite at home. Especially enjoyed the company of her sweet dog and cat...

I spent 2 nights at Yvonne's place and I really enjoyed it. Yvonne is a wonderful host and made sure I felt at home. The breakfast she served was just amazing and the guest room very comfortable. The house is very close to some nice beaches. Thank you very much for a great time.

It was hot in Hervey Bay for my trip - thank goodness Yvonne has a swimming pool to cool off in! Bliss :)

We really enjoyed being Yvonn's guest. She is the perfect host and made everything that we felt very welcome. It was our first Airbnb experience in a shared house and it couldn't have been better! The house was so beautifully and our room totally cozy. The breakfast was yummy and we had a great dinner. Yvonne organized our trip to Fraser Island, which was just amazing. We really regret, that we didn't stay for a third night. We would always come back and highly recommend that place. Anne & Florian
