Hot breakfast Incl, Large home, theatre room, wifi, pool, backs onto Golf Course, opposite a reserve home to kangaroos. Totally separate room with its own ensuite, WIR, tv/netflix . Close to shops, transport, theme parks, restaurants, golf club.

The space

An elegant and roomy bedroom with an extremely comfortable queen size bed with new bedding and king size new bath towels. The room has a separate entrance. Everything about this suite is high end luxury. All guests have been suitably impressed from the moment they enter the gates of the resort, and very thrilled when they see their private retreat. Photos just don't do it justice. Breakfast is available for you to prepare yourself in a well equipped kitchen. The suite has a new bar fridge with a crisper and freezer along with tea and coffee making facilities. A large range of gourmet teas are provided, along with silk summer robes and winter robes. I provide a picnic basket and esky along with beach towels, pool towels a beach bag and a light weight back pack for you to use on day trips. This guest suite is separate from other rooms and the only suite on the ground floor with a private patio and sitting area, overlooking the garden, pool and golf course. The pool and gardens can be lit up at night for you to enjoy nighttime swims. It is so peaceful and tranquil with a massive reserve at the front of the house, home to kangaroos. It is a quiet street with luxury homes on only one side. For entertainment you haveFree wifi with American Netflix (netflix has hundreds of complete seasons of TV shows, documentaries, and several hundred HD movies all on demand) along with a blue tooth sound speaker so you can enjoy your own music. It really looks like an expensive five star hotel room. Supplied are some toiletries including shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hair dryer, along with sunscreen and insect repellent. The gardens are manicured not only on our property but the entire resort.

Guests will also have access to the resorts 25 metre swimming pool, and bbq facility. Guests can easily walk within minutes to the bus stops, shops, restaurants, beauty salon and coffee shops. Hope Island resort is a complete gated community just minutes from Sanctuary Cove, 6 major theme parks and tourist attractions, and a short drive to beaches, Surfers Paradise, nightclubs and the casino. Guests can come and go as they please, you will have complete access to the house and resort. On site parking is available.

I have a private upstairs lounge area that I like to use. The Cabana and lounges are a central point we can all enjoy, should you wish.

Hope Island is an exclusive community on the northern end of the Gold Coast. We have 24 hour security and it is a gated estate. It's like we are on holidays living here 365 days a year. We still get excited seeing all the kangaroos around our home, its something that will always be special. Swans, ducks and flamingos call the ponds home in our reserve, so there is so much wildlife to enjoy in this tranquil setting. Even the reserve is maintained and pristine.

Theme Parks such as Dreamworld, Movie World, White Water World, Aussie Outback Spectacular and Wet and Wild are all only a few kilometres away. Seaworld is about 20 minutes drive, the 52 kilometres of beach is about 15 mins away and local buses go anywhere you wish to visit. Carlton United brewery is about 15 mins drive and they do beer tastings and brewery tours. several boutique wineries are a short drive away and the stunning Mt Tamborine with all it has to offer is a 30 minute drive. We are also not far from a water ski park and a wake boarding lake.

We have on site parking. We will provide you with a residents access card so you can come and go as you please ( we will ask for a $20 security deposit for this card), and you don't have to have it as our security can be advised to allow you access. About ten minutes drive is a major outlet shopping centre where you can score some great bargains.

We get around in our golf buggy, if time permits you are welcome to a tour of the resort in the buggy. The train is a few kilometres away and the bus stops are a short walk. Shops and restaurants, bars and the golf club are all within walking distance. our home is easily accessible to transport. I enjoy taking guests for a guided tour in our golf buggy and I am happy to drop you to any local restaurants, bars or the shops as part of a buggy tour.

We permit smoking in the all outside areas.

We really want you to be spoilt and have fun.

Guest access

Guests will also have access to the resorts 25 metre swimming pool, and bbq facility, within the resort. Upon arrival, you will be provided with an access card to the resort.

Interaction with guests

I am available to chat and help you with your holiday. You are in control as to if and when we interact. I have a private upstairs area that I retreat to. I want you to have all the privacy and feeling like you are in your own oasis.

Other things to note

There is a small dog that my yap (bark) when you first arrive, then she will remain quiet.

The pool has lights for any night time swims you may wish to take.

I have a list of places with directions for you to visit that will not be in any tourist brochure that I'm sure you will enjoy, including a tropical rainforest walk and BBQ or mountain rock pools and swimming under waterfalls.

Was a great stay, the house 0is gorgeous the location secluded and exclusive. Donna was a great host and everything was as advertised. The kitchen is being renovated but it was not a issue. We are very happy with our stay and would come back again.

Donna is very generous. When we arrived at her home some hours early, she kindly made us feel at home with a cup of tea. She is very thoughtful, even lending us her car when ours had broken down. We were amazed at the energy she has: not just for us but for other guests also. Her cooking skills are second to none! Quite a breakfast menu and so perfectly cooked, she even ducks out to her extensive vegie/herb garden to put the finishing touches to each dish. One could say we were “spoilt rotten”. She also bakes bread each evening in readiness for the breakfast. The house is spotless, as is the linen, bath robes, etc. etc. The garden is immaculate. We highly recommend this B&B to even the most discerning guests.

Thank you Christian for your review and also choosing to stay with me. You are so very kind and generous, offering your help which I rejected as it is my job to spoil you as the guest. Thank you for the offers. Hope to see you again sometime and that the Boast Show was a huge success for you. Donna :)

We stayed four nights at Donna's place. it is a beautiful house in a prime location. We've seen kangaroos and had a chance to make photos. Donna prepared breakfasts for us, every time different. When there was a problem with Wi-Fi, Donna made her best to solve the problem.

Response from Donna:
thank you so much Roxana for your feedback and review. I didn't know that the checkout time stated 'flexible' so I will amend this, I am so pleased u mentioned this. Given that, it can be flexible if we are not fully booked and it is with prior arrangement. I am delighted you enjoyed your stay. Last night the kangaroos were all by our pool area, so fun! We seldom have guests without a car however since your stay I have been researching all the bus and tram routes, another great suggestion, thank you :)

I am a single corporate executive who works from home. The house is extremely quiet. I work from home with hours to suit myself and am blessed to be able to enjoy our lovely home and resort style living. I mainly drive my golf buggy for transport as everything I need is access…
