Let's start by saying how kind Mark/Karen was to making my Townsville trip and enjoyable and memorable one for my 2 week stay. This was my first time using Air bnb and it has been the best! They offered me a lift from the airport, they communicated well as my flight was delayed and still picked me up from the airport. I was here on a 2 week working contract for university. They provided a "starter kit" as written in their listing with honey, peanut butter spread, jam, bread, cereal and rice crackers. This got me going for a couple of days. They also took me to the nearest supermarket for groceries on arrival saving me from walking a good 15min unfamiliar walk. They also shared their kitchen facilities and ingredients which saved me money. Furthermore, they have a BBQ and pool which makes cooking and relaxing much better, to fully enjoy Townsville tropical weather. I would recommend this place as it is value for money, clean, comfortable, useful and close to a Coles supermarket. Hungry jacks is only a 5min walk too! You also get your own private shower and toilet and room. Oh, REMEMBER TO BRING INSECT REPELLENT, you are in tropical Queensland after all. The best highlight was being able to use their brand new bikes which Mark fixed for me, this got me around places much easier and letting me enjoying the parks and area. Park is just 2min walk with fitness equipment and walking/bicycle paths. I have enjoyed my stay here in Townsville thanks to Mark and Karen. They were wonderful hosts, and sharing their knowledge in the area. Magnetic island is a wonderful place to holiday if you're staying here as well. Castle hill and The Strand is a good weekend activity too.

Everything seemed even better in person than in the pictures. Mark and Karen were great, providing kitchen and bathroom essentials, a clean and comfortable room, and even offering transport around Townsville for me. Public transport nearby their home which is easy to use to get in and out of town. Would recommend to friends and family and if I am ever in Townsville again, would love to stay again.

Mark and Karen were incredibly welcoming to their home and Townsville. A welcome package was prepared and the room was well cleaned. Spacious room with good facilities and a cosy place. Mark and Karen were really helpful in providing ideas of things to do and information about town. I would definitely recommend friends and family to stay with them.

Had a lovely stay with Mark and Karen. They were wonderful, accommodating hosts. An airport pick-up was offered and they cooked a beautiful lamb roast the first night for us! Breakfast was included which was good. Good location close to shops, university and river and accessible by public transport. Room was bright, cheerful and cool through warm nights. There is an air conditioner if needed. Tea on the deck in the morning overlooking pool was the best way to start the day. I recommend their place and would definitely stay there again when I next come to Townsville. Thanks Mark and Karen!

It was my first time to Australia and my English was not good. Thanks to Mark and Karen, they showed me around the city, helped me with shopping and so on. They are so kind and and helpful. They treated me as a friend, a family member. I really appreciated it. Besides, the bedroom and bathroom are spacious and clean. The kitchen is provided for cooking. The location is very convenient to get to shops and bus stops. In a word, it was a pleasant stay in Mark and Karen' s house.

Hi, my wife, Karen and myself work full time.
We are long time residents of Townsville after moving here in 1981 as a 2 year plan !!!! So we know North Queensland area very well and are keen to share it with the rest of the world.
Both our sons have move to Melbourne and we have a large friendly home we would like to share with our guests both local and international.
We have hosted 6 students for 11 months each thru the AFS Exchange Student Program over the years, and have visited 3 of them in Germany last year hoping to visit another couple in Brazil soon.
We love good food and wine and sharing those with friends new and old.
I am also an active member of a local Rotary Club !!

We believe in treating others as we would like to be treated ourselves and trying to make our guest's stay as pleasant and rewarding as possible.

We look forward to catching up when you are next in Townsville.
