We have stayed at many Airbnb's the past couple of years and met many different types of hosts. John is hands down one of the best host's we had the pleasure of meeting and staying with. We stayed there for two nights (I highly recommend you stay more than 1 day).
The home is beautiful and located in a great neighborhood that has a community gym and pool. You sense the warmth and welcoming energy the moment you step into their home. The home is tastefully decorated, very clean, and perfectly light. Their pets, Chelsea and Jazzy, are well mannered, friendly, and adorable - a definite plus to staying at their wonderful home.
Him and Sue are great company; easy to converse with, accommodating, and polite. Communication with him was very easy. John would go out of his way to make sure we had a great time in Brisbane - if he had the time or if it wasn't too far, he would offer to drive us to the train station or local store so we could continue on our adventures in Australia. His drop off and pickup from the airport option made our lives so much easier. We felt like VIP!
He is an excellent cook - make sure you use his dinner option. Chelsea would sit under the table and/or come over for drive by pets during dinner. She is a great foot rest. The breakfasts provided every morning were also very tasty and filling.
We sincerely appreciate the experience and hospitality John and Sue offered us and know that future guests will have a great experience or better. We highly recommend this Airbnb! Especially for those that love dogs cause Chelsea is just that cute. :)
