“Our exchange with John and Kim worked perfectly. Their fourth floor apartment on the Gold Coast is modern, spotless, comfortable and welcoming - the bottle of wine was appreciated. It is in a prime position for experiencing a warm coastal indulgence or for travelling into the beautiful hinterland. They left our Canberra home in a spotless condition. Our communication with them was cheery and efficient. They have our full recommendation.”
John's reviewsAs a host (9)
“We have just returned from a fabulous week on the Gold Coast in Queensland. This was our first exchange, and I didn't know what to expect, especially as we swapped cars as well. But I need not have worried, as Kim and John were fantastic, lovely people. The location of their apartment is perfect, right on the beach in Surfers Paradise, with a fantastic view. Their home is very clean, bright and tidy, with everything you need. Its great for kids too. There are so many facilities in the complex. My son loved the indoor heated pool & 2 spa's, as well as the outdoor pool. We also played tennis and squash. Kim & John also left a boogie board for the kids and we spent hours at the beach trying to master it. Sea World is just up the road and it was a great day out. When we returned to our home, Kim & John left it neat and tidy just as they found it. All in all a fabulous holiday, and I would recommend exchanging with Kim & John who made everything so easy, and will look after your home as their own.”
“We had a wonderful week in John and Kim\'s beautiful apartment, which is more or less right on the beach. It has everything you need for a great holiday, including masses of information about the locality, and things to do and see. John and Kim are great hosts, and communication was easy The apartment is close to everything you could possibly want- cafes, restarants, supermarkets, all just a walk away, as were bus stops and the light rail. We didn\'t use the car at all. What a glorious place to wake up to in the morning! We highly reccommend this lovely apartment.”
“We have a great time in the apartment of John and Kim. Great experience a period so near the sea to live in well maintained and cared for property. From Surfers Paradise to several fine trips to the beautiful surroundings. And when we came back home, we found our home as it was deserted. Thank you John and Kim.”
“We recently had a very enjoyable 2 weeks at John & Kim's beautiful beach-front apartment at Surfers Paradise. John & Kim are a friendly and accommodating couple who were very easy to communicate with. The view and outlook from their balcony is spectacular. We enjoyed coffee/ wine there while whale-watching. Watching the sun rise over the Pacific Ocean while having a morning coffee was a joy. Their apartment is cosy, comfortable and has everything a house-swapper needs for an enjoyable stay. The complex has every amenity you could think of and patrolled surfing beaches are a short walk. The location of their apartment is excellent for anyone wishing to enjoy what the Gold Coast and the nearby Hinterland has to offer. Many thanks John & Kim for a wonderful experience. ”
“We thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay in this lovely apartment in Surfers Paradise. John and Kim made it all happen quickly and easily. All communication with them was so pleasant and helpful. They were wonderful. The apartment was spacious and very comfortable and had fantastic views of the coastline and beaches. Also it was in walking distance to anything we needed and only a few steps to the sea and the sand. So relaxing! One of our best exchanges. ”
“We've just got home from the most wonderful holiday in John and Kim's apartment on the Gold Coast. John and Kim were lovely people to do a home exchange with and made us feel so comfortable, communicated throughout and met with us on route to the Gold Coast to exchange keys. The apartment was in a great location, right on the beach and in a quiet spot in between the hustle and bustle of Surfers' and Broadbeach. It was spacious (even with the children), clean and had everything you could wish for. The balcony had amazing views of the beach, and waking up to the sound of the ocean every morning was delightful. The apartment block itself was well kitted out for children, and ours had so much fun in the outdoor and indoor pools, and the kids play area. For older kids there was a tennis court, basketball, squash and a gym too. It had a real holiday vibe and we felt very relaxed. When we returned home our house was absolutely spotless, and they had even watered the grass for us. We're very grateful to have had such a perfect exchange, and would not hesitate to recommend Kim and John and their beautiful apartment. ”
“Kim`s and John`s appartment in Surfers Paradise allows a great view of the beach from nearly every angle. It is a nice and homy place with everthing you need plus in- and outdoor pool and two spas and direct access to the endless beach. Walking distance to the center; even the kids enjoyed this walk along the beach as there is so much discover. Exchanging homes with Kim and John was easy and a nice experience. They were the first to visit our house in Berlin and really looked after this.”
“We , Hans & Antje a german couple , stood vor nearly one month at Kim and Johns apartment . From middle of Dezember to middle of January . That are school holidays in Australia , high season and party time for Surfers Paradiese . Many people come together and celebrate Christmas and the New Year . The apartment house from Kim and John is located at Burleigh Beach , far away from all hustle and bustle . But close enough for a walk to reach the center of Surfers . About the beach you need 15 minutes and you are in the middle of life on the promenade of Surfers . The walks on the beach, we enjoyed every day ! The trips were equally interesting by car to the hinterland . The nice village of Tamborine and other parks with excellent walking trails are strongly recommended . But also the surrounding area is superbly developed by public transport . The bus stop is right outside the door and a stop of the tram can be reached in 5 minutes . Surfers is the combination between modern city, meeting place and great beach life. A special feature of John and Kim\'s Apartment are three pools on the premises. An exterior, an interior swimming pool and a hot tub and of course the beach just outside the door make the decision lightly. We say , thank you very much at Kim and John that we could swap the apartments and wish for the future still many pleasant strolls and popular replacements . Hans & Antje”
