About us:

My husband Tom and I (Ann) live here, we both work full time. We have been married for 22 yrs, Tom is self employed as a pest controller and I am in sales pay TV . We host international students from time to time as we are both in our 50's and have 6 grown children living away from home. When the kids left the house it was a bit empty so we decided to join home stay. Our last student was from Hong Kong and he was with us for a year. Our grown kids live nearby they are always popping in and out for visits and we often go to the beach on weekends for family barbecues. Family is the most important thing to us. We are truly lucky to be living on the Gold Coast the weather is always fabulous. You will love it, especially if your an outdoor type of person. We have a small maltese cross called coco. (pls note dog will be in care while we are away) We lead a quiet life and are both non drinkers and non smokers. We love going to beach and movies and walks and local cafes and restaurants. Tom loves to keep active. We plan to travel to London and meet up with Toms family for a week or so and see the sights, castles and country homes together. Tom doesn't get to see them that often due to the expense of travelling . Plus its hard to get away when u work for yourself. So we are just going to "bite the bullet" as some would say and "do it"! We would like you to feel welcome in our home and enjoy sunny Queensland. Smoking is ok outside the home. We only ask that you respect our home and leave it clean. We will be out most days sight seeing and will treat your home as if it was our own, with respect and care.
