    We are a family of five - Four adults and 1 teenage boy. We are 14 kilometres from the centre of Brisbane and 40 minutes to the Gold Coast by car. The bus stop is a 10 minute walk away and the train station is a 30 min walk - we provide a bicycle.
    Our home is large with a pool; great to relax in at the end of the day. We provide delicious food (vegetarian as well as meat based), a comfortable bed, unlimited wifi and lots of laughs.
