Our guests have told us that our place is a little bit special.
Our self contained Colonial Style Studio Apartment is situated in a separate building, set on our acreage property. It's perfect for guests who want to visit the GC but prefer to leave the bright lights and retire to accommodation which offers peace and tranquillity. A country retreat but located close to all attractions and beaches.

The space
Jamilia, named after our children, Emilia and James, is a self contained Studio situated on the first floor of a detached dwelling within our acreage residence. The Studio has a private entrance and is independent of the family home where we live. It has a fully equipped kitchen for 2/4 people, with bar fridge, small electric bench-top oven (available on request), separate two burner hob and microwave. There is also a BBQ for guests to use with separate gas hob. If you prefer to eat out, guests can enjoy the many varied restaurants on the Gold Coast.
The apartment has Canadian wood flooring and is tastefully decorated with wood panelling and furnished in Victorian pine. The Bathroom has a corner shower with bath enclosed and free-standing Victorian Washstand.

There is a television with free Netflix for our guests and free WiFi.

One area of the studio is furnished with a Cast Iron Victorian double bed and there is a fold away single bed and travel cot which can be prepared if guests have a child or baby.

Host services are available if required and negotiated separately, including fresh towels for long-stay guests and laundry facilities.

It's perfect for guests who want to visit the Gold Coast but prefer to leave the bright lights and retire to their accommodation which offers peace and tranquillity. A country retreat but located close to all attractions and beaches. Enjoy sitting on the patio and listening to the wildlife, while you enjoy a cold glass of wine.

Guest access
Access to the Studio is by a private front door and guests will be given a key on arrival. The guests can enjoy the family pool and small courtyard under the studio where they can use the BBQ provided and seating area. There is also a chest freezer where guests can store any meat for cooking. There is adequate parking for 2 cars.

Other things to note
I work from home and have an office underneath the studio, however access is via a separate entrance. Our dog, Holly also lives underneath the Studio in her own separate room during the day. On your arrival, Holly may bark as she hears a strange car, however she quickly becomes used to our guests as they come and go during their stay.

My husband, Gary and 2 children Emilia and James and our 7 year old Labrador, Holly, live on the fabulous Gold Coast, having emigrated from the UK in 2008. We love Australia and we have settled well. Our eldest daughter, is currently at university and our youngest is in his final years of high school. We work hard (too hard!), I have a home based business which has been operating for almost 10 years and Gary is a Civil Engineer. Our home is colonial and decorated to suit our country lifestyle and has a very traditional look with a very English feel. Having joined Airbnb, we hope to take some time off and travel more in the next few years.
