What guests say about the property -

"We loved our stay at Coconut Grove! The house was exactly as we expected; spacious, well maintained and accommodating. We enjoyed a week of relaxing on the deck, fishing, feeding the ducks and swimming in the pool. Wendy was a great help, and was friendly and welcoming on our arrival. Coconut Grove is a great house for family and large group stays."

About Wendy Fourter

I manage many holiday houses in Broadbeach and Mermaid, and I like to meet and greet every guest when they arrive at the property to make them feel welcome and to answer any tourist questions, although the first question is always "what's the wifi password?" :) An imprint of their credit card will be taken at that time for security (same as hotels). I always say to guests that if there are any problems during their stay, please contact me immediately so I can fix it.

Great property for a relaxing getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed at Coconut Grove with a house of 11 adults and 3 babies. We had a great time at the property and all felt there was enough space for all of us.

The location was perfect, a stones throw from everything. We all enjoyed just hanging out on the deck overlooking the private beach, even a few of us spending some time snoozing in the hammock.

The owners made us feel very welcome, even coming and fixing up a few things and cleaning out the pool on our first day.

I really recommend this place if you are looking for somewhere quiet, but still within walking distance or a short drive to all the gold coast has to offer.

Great property! Very comfortable and private

  • 5 of 5

Definitely a great holiday house. Not a property for you if you are looking for a more modern approach, but none the less it has heaps of space and fully functional essentials with a few lights that were not working.

Definitely would stay here again.

Awesome house for a group getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I booked this house for a girls weekend. We had 10 of us come up and there were beds for all. Loved the massive deck and outdoor setting over the water and the privacy of the pool in the back yard. The house was nice and close to everything, the theme parks weren't far away and we could get to both Surfers and Burleigh. Awesome Holiday - Thanks!

Great family house

  • 4 of 5

This house was perfect in size for all 12 of us and we liked how it was situable with young children as we did not have to worry about them breaking anything. We ended up using public transport during our stay with the bus stop just around the corner. The house is also within walking distance to Pacific Fair as well as Gold Coast Highway. Wendy was very helpful and able to be contacted when needed and interested in hearing feedback to improve the property.

awesome pad

  • 5 of 5

A group of 8 of us went up to the gold coast to visit the theme parks. coconut grove was a convenient location, close to everything and a perfect place to hang out. We enjoyed our breakfasts on the bbq on the big deck overlooking the water. We had a go at fishing which was fun, but ended up facing reality and going up to the famous "peters seafood" for our fill of fish and chips at the spit, near seaworld, about a 10 minute drive away. The beach was only 5 minutes drive too.

We pencilled in a visit to the nobbys beach nightlife after reading about it in the Jetstar magazine on our flight up and as it turned out was only a 5 minute drive from the house- we ended up walking back (over the limit)which only took about 15 minutes. we liked the feeling of the big family house on the water- lots of space to spread out and lots of bedrooms and bathrooms everywhere. We will be back!

thanks Zac

Owner's Response: Thank you Zac for your positive review, it was great hosting such a happy group of people - you are most welcome to come back anytime. Maybe next time the fish will be more cooperative! Kind regards, Wendy
