Harbourside was our final stop before flying home to the UK from Brisbane airport. The airport itself is only 25 minutes by car, we drove into the glass house mountains and though we didn't go to it, Australia zoo is abut 45 minutes away.
We were greeted by Rob upon an early arrival. He was fantastic in helping us out where he could. Through email, we had asked if we could leave our cases while we went out for the day and that we would drop them off around 10am. As it happened, he already had the room ready for us (Including cot) so we he offered it to us straight away and it meant we did not lose a day of our holiday waiting for accommodation to allow us in. Added to that, at the end of our stay, Rob also let us hang around as our evening flight wasn't until 11pm. With 2 young kids, we were very grateful of this.
The place itself is unique for a family as one half of the bed and breakfast had master and separate children's bedroom that link through a small corridor with a bathroom also leading off. We could lock ourselves into this half and be self sufficient.
The B&B was clean, tidy, and most importantly for us after 3 weeks of bad beds in other accommodations, very comfortable. Our 2 kids, particularly our 5 year old boy loved playing with their daughter who is a lovely young lady. Polite, friendly and always smiling.
We will be back once we have made a move to Australia, this is a very good holiday destination and also feel like when returning, we will be visiting friends, not owners of a B&B.
If you have young kids, you should visit Redcliffe Lagoon which has amazing outdoor facilities.
