Stayed for 1 night and would definitely re-book. Wonderful location - 5 minutes walk to the beach, 10 minutes to Gold Coast airport, 10 minutes to restaurants/shops. Nostalgic exterior but fully renovated with all modern appointments. Loads of character, extremely helpful and pleasant owners, very reasonable rates, airport shuttle service. Thumbs up!!

I was unable to fly home as planned as my son became ill just before our flight. I needed to find accommodation next to the Gold Coast Airport immediately. This place showed up on Google as 5 star guest rating so i called up and booked. Best move I ever made! Annie came and picked us up free of charge....

Lobbed in here for three nights over Easter with a friend. Fantastically located walking distance from Coolangatta airport, or the owners will come and pick you up if you prefer. Don't be put off by how close the airport is; you don't hear any air traffic noise at all. It's located just off the beach (about a 50 meter walk)...

This place is gorgeous. Recently renovated. Nice rooms. Great location near the airport and less than a minute to the beach. I love the coffee machine in the rooms so you can have a real coffee in the morning. We stayed here rather than travel from Brisbane for a morning flight.

This place is a hidden little treasure. Perfect location, with the beautiful Kirra beach on its doorstep and the airport close by. Room was cozy, simple and elegant beach style, extremely comfortable, well equipped and nice selection in the minibar - and the owner was so nice, warm and welcoming! Will definitely return and can recommend it to anyone!

The friendliest service at any accommodation I've come across. The room was just right, clean and comfy. I was surprised when I walked in to find a modern room. Even when we made a mistake on our booking the host went above and beyond to help us out, as the hotel was fully booked. Just a few steps away from...

Great value for money, very clean. You are greeted with a great smile and a friendly welcome. Very close to the airport well within walking distance. The room we were in had a single bed and a queen bed. Very comfy.

Been done up well but some things too cute should be replaced,. The door didn't seal, there is a fair gap right around it which allowed noise and street lighting to intrude. Reception was fast and efficient, parking is a lottery and these is only street parking.
