“Splendid time in a Fabulous home away from home”
Reviewed 21 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

The raving reviews are not for nothing. Indeed, there is no better words to describe how well the entire holiday turned out to be.

We have 12 people in our .group of 3 generations with an age gap of 70 years. Having teenagers around did not help much as everyone is in their different stages of life with varied interests and different meal requirements!

Christina's house plan is very well thought through. First, she is so approachable and considerate. She made it a point to get in touch with us to find out our family profile and provide useful advise and setup the house in preparation for our arrival.

Cleanliness - Very Good
House was handed over in a very good condition. So please continue to take care of her house as anyone will enjoy it. From patio to living room to kitchen to bedroom to toilet. But we do wash the kitchen utensil and cutleries once before our use. Also the BBQ pit. It runs on gas. So we heat it up once to clean before use.

Equipped Kitchen - Excellent!
It is fully equipped! Even if you want to do baking. There is measuring spoon but no weighing scale. Other than that, everything is there. Including peelers, ice cream scoop, tongs, etc etc. We got our sponge and brush for hygiene. There is also a super large refrigerator and extra freezer.

Washing - Excellent!
There is a washing machine and a dryer. Small amount of powder detergent is provided as starter kit. We brought along laundry bags, bounce.

Bedrooms
Fresh linens with so many pillows and throw cushion.

Bathroom
Very clean. Small pieces of soap is provided. Other than that, we bought and brought our own. So many fresh towels! One for each stated guest. Christina even put in extra towels and floor mats for our use.

Living Room
So many throw cushions around. Makes it so tempting to just LAZE. There are also sufficient throws in case it gets too cold and we just want to snuggle. There is a foosball table which provided so much entertainment for the young and old! Love love love.

Entertainment corner
With a Xbox, it makes up everything else when it fails. Kids, teenagers love that corner everyday, every time.

Others
We brought along disposable bedroom slippers which came in useful. Fishing! We bought some fish baits from Big W. Finally managed to catch 2 fishes from just the pontoon!

“Outstanding!”
Reviewed 23 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Christina and Richard were fantastic to deal with from the moment we made our booking. The house was beautifully presented and clean. Being able to book the Gold Coast Abode 3 doors up meant our family of 12 adults and 5 kids could still be together without being crammed in. Best way to holiday with such a large group!

Reviewed 8 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

What can I say!, This home was sensational, looks just like the website advertisement and more. We had 11 incredible days here and really didn't want to leave. First time we have been on holiday and spent so much time at our accommodation just relaxing. The pool was a big hit for all of us and the little ones, 9,7 and 4 wanted to be in it all the time! The deck area overlooking the river was amazing. So close to all the Theme Parks and fantastic shopping, what more could you want. Christina, we are already thinking about our next family holiday and it will definitely be at Main River Abode!.

The house is marvelous !!!.Soon as we entered the house, we felt the warmth, peacefulness and convenience of the place. Everything was provided for and although there were a couple of things that didn't work, we were so pleased with Richard McQueen (owner) coming by and having them fixed soonest possible. It was just like living in your own place, we would highly recommend this place to our friends and be back, ourselves too...!!! More power to you Christina and Richard McQueen...regards and God bless you both !!!
