'Xenia' - Ancient Greek concept for Hospitality
'Xenia' offers guests an amazing stay in a lovely unique style home, with many of our guests saying it's more like a 'retreat'.
It's great for large families and big groups, whether you're swimming, having a barbie, playing table tennis or just relaxing, there's plenty of space for everyone.
We know that you'll enjoy the amazing space and feel our beautiful home offers and want your stay at 'Xenia' to be an amazing and unforgettable experience.
You'll love our place, as the house itself is unique, with 3 split levels, on a lovely big property.
As you enter the big red door, you're in a feng shui inspired Atrium, with 2 rock ponds under a timber bridge which leads you into the house. The pond is home to 4 large turtles that have lived here since the house was built.
Once inside, middle level, you're in the kitchen and living area, which are separated by a 6m high solid brick fireplace. The living area is vast and bright, due to the high cathedral ceiling that spans across both rooms and boasts large timber beams. Glass doors all round add to fill the room with light and open onto a large balcony. The balcony overlooks the pool, with a bar style dining setting that's perfect for breakfast on a sunny morning, afternoon cocktails or enjoying a drink while watching the kids have fun in the pool. The living area has a large round leather lounge which is 2 and a half metres wide and sleep. For your entertainment, there's a 50 inch TV, Telstra TV, Netflix and a DVD player with a large selection of DVD's to watch. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you would need to cook up a storm, wonderful gas cooking and a 6 seater dining setting that looks into the atrium.
The top level has 2 bedrooms and the main bathroom. Both bedrooms have queen beds with high quality mattresses, lovely fresh linen and quilts, with extra super soft blankets available. The first bedroom has a queen bed and single sofa/bed with space for the porta cot or a single floor mattress. The second bedroom is a twin room with 2 queen beds. Both rooms have built in robes, ceiling fans and sliding doors that open onto a large balcony with a lounge to relax on. Fresh bath towels, hand towels and face washers are provided.
The bathroom has a large corner spa bath, separate shower, toilet and a double stone top vanity.
Directly down the stairs you're in the sunroom/bedroom which also opens directly out to the pool and alfresco dining area. In this room 'The Dorm' there are 2 sets of bunks, one set having a double bottom bed plus a double futon sofa and a desk, sleeping up to 7 people in this room. The third bedroom has a queen bed and also opens directly out to the alfresco dining area, with a double glazed sliding door and double glazed windows. There is a queen size aerobed available that can be used in the lounge room, if required. The second bathroom/laundry is also on this level.
The outdoor area is perfect for large groups or families to enjoy with lots of space. There's a large 10m x 4m tiled salt water pool with specialised mineral salts, that's kind on your skin and hair and relaxes muscles, plus sun lounges to help you get that perfect Gold Coast tan. The alfresco dining area has an outdoor kitchen, fridge, BBQ and a large outdoor dining setting. There's a 40 inch TV outside that you can watch from just about anywhere, perfect for the warmer months. So no need to sit inside and miss out on a beautiful sunny day while on holidays, just swing the TV to where you want and enjoy your favourite shows, movies or sporting events while having a barbie, chilling on the sun lounges or in the pool with a cool drink. We also have table tennis and totem tennis for everyone to enjoy.
Please note, we live in a villa out the back, which is detached from the main house, a completely separate dwelling, with our own private side entrance and private sitting area.
Overall, the house accommodates 14 people comfortably with the beds already provided, plus a baby/toddler in a portacot, but we can and have accommodated 20+ people using the lounges and queen air bed.
We also have available for babies and toddlers, a high chair, 2 booster seats, a walker, play pen, plus a pram/stroller that you can use when going out, at no extra cost.
The house is all yours, as we live in the villa out the back.
The large outdoor/alfresco dining area is for your enjoyment and the outdoor kitchen, BBQ and pool are shared.
We have our own outdoor lounge area directly outside our villa, which is sectioned off with bamboo blinds and provides privacy and separation for both the guests and hosts.

PLEASE NOTE: RE COMMONWEALTH GAMES 2018
'Xenia' is perfectly located for The Commonwealth Games, as we're only 3km to the new Carrara Sports Precinct, which has been updated for The Commonwealth Games and includes Metricon Stadium, the new Carrara Sport & Leisure Centre and Carrara Indoor Sports Stadium.
Metricon Stadium is hosting the Opening and Closing Ceremonies for The Commonwealth Games 2018, and is hosting many of the sporting events at the Stadium, as well as the other many new Sporting Venues situated there.
It only takes a few minutes by car or a quick 15 min walk to get to the Stadium, making 'Xenia' an extremely convenient location to stay. Perfect should you need or want to come home for lunch or a break while at an event, saving you time and money travelling to and from, instead of sitting in traffic jams or long bus lines.
The house also comes with added bonuses, so that you don't need to pack everything. These include:
Hand Towels/Face Washers
STARTER KIT consisting of:
For Babbies and Toddlers we have:
2 Booster Seats
Pram/Stroller that you're free to use when going out and less luggage for you to carry, at no extra cost.
If you would like the house cleaned during your stay, especially if staying more than 7 days, just let us know and we can easily organise for the cleaners to come thru and do a thorough clean, which includes changing all the linen etc, making it lovely and hygienic for all concerned. They charge $150, which you can pay directly to them and we will cover the laundry costs.
We love our home and ask all our guests to be respectful of the house and others. Keep things clean and tidy and please leave everything as you found it.
No smoking inside, but please feel free to smoke anywhere outdoors, including the balconies.
When checking out, we ask you have all dishes, cups etc washed and/or stack in the dishwasher, leaving the kitchen and the rest of the house clean and tidy and ALL rubbish to be taken out and placed in the big bins at the front.
We're easy going, but we will not accept people who are disrespectful, dishonest, dirty or don't care about how they live, while in our home.
Please confirm if the number of guests you originally booked per night increases, so we can prepare the correct bedding/linen and finalise any extra costs that may be required.
Should you arrive with more guests than you originally booked for or have more than 16 guests staying per night and don't notify us, you risk being turned away, as this is breaking our House Rules.
NO glass in the pool area.
Definitely NO parties allowed, without prior approval. Please feel free to either call or email any requests. Please note that all Special Requests/Events are subject to availability and additional charges may apply.
STRICT Quiet time after 10pm.
Due to it being a residential area, we ask that you respect our neighbours and keep the noise to a respectful level after 10pm (GC neighbourhood rule). Should you wish to party on after this time and the noise level is excessive, you may risk your stay.
If any of these rules are broken, we will issue a warning, after that, we have the right to remove you from the house, forfeiting the balance of your stay and also risk losing your Security Deposit.
This all may sound a bit harsh, but we hope you understand that we have these House Rules in play, to avoid any unnecessary or awkward situations.
We want all our guests to enjoy their stay in our home, have fun and love it as much as we do.
