“Amazing experience once again, feels like coming home!”
Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in April 2018

Tom and Cathy had 3 of us to stay this time for the best part of a week, it just felt like coming home! Comfy beds, stylish bathroom and wonderful modern house with everything you need and an art gallery attached to boot. The weather was better this time (not that they had any control). This time we brought a friend with us who was delighted with the stay as were we.
Everything is very relaxed, sit enjoy chatter, roam the gardens with the tropical plants (this time we didn't buy citrus but went away with huge limes and lemons), spend time in the infinity pool overlooking the hills beyond and watch the sunset from there. Come and go as you please.
The local retail area is close for groceries and also good eats. Airlie Beach is touristy but as a result plenty of places to eat and drink. Cathy is ok with you using her kitchen to prepare food, as long as you clean up!
You do really need a car from here since there is limited public transport, we used our car to head out to Bowen - Queensland's Hollywood. We had a fabulous meal at one of the many pubs there and went to Horseshoe beach. There is still a little evidence of Cyclone Debbie especially a couple of places near Bowen we had been previously but if you weren't aware you would hardly notice that things were awry.
We did a repeat trip to Whitehaven for the day, which I will review separately. Airlie Arthouse and Whitehaven are truly my happy places in the world.
On our final night we shared a fantastic meal together with our hosts, none of us wanted it to end. It will be an abiding memory for us and the thread which leads us back as soon as we can.
My husband and I had been on a 10 week trip within Auz, this was coming towards the end and was a highlight for us.
Tom and Cathy friends for life, thank you and see you again soon.

“Beautiful, comfortable, convenient and very interesting”
Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in June 2018

We enjoyed staying at the Art House. Tom and Cathy are very friendly, helpful and interesting. The house and grounds are spectacular. Lovely pool and orchard, lots of fresh fruit available. We were two couples with a shared bathroom, access to laundry and the run if the house. We would recommend the Art House. If you are at all interested in Australian Art this is a must. Cathy is an incredible curator and supporter of the arts. Thoroughly enjoyable.

person found this review helpful

The house is a master work of timber building with beautiful floors and beams. The decor is eclectic and classy with a lovely spacious lounge and deck area. The Artwork displayed throughout the house adds interest and colour. The room was clean and tidy, with a spacious bathroom next to it.
The Hosts Tom and Kathy are lovely friendly people with, that make you feel at home...in short it's highly recommended,Tony and Julie.

“Priviledge”

It was realy a priviledge to stay at the suoerbe house of Tom and Catherine. The rooms where excellent and our access to the common areas a bonus. The added value was the compagny of the owners, generous with their time, and the valued information provided to maximise our pleasure during our stay.

A " merci beaucoup" to both of them.

“Perfect”
Reviewed November 3, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

When you come to Tom and Cathy you will be welcomed like a friend - and this is how you leave. We had a great time for 2 days there and didn't want to leave. Tom has built a wonderful house and home and Cathy has completed it with love, taste and art. I think we will forget many accomodations we had during our 3 weeks in Australia. This one not!.Great hosts, great house, a piece of heaven. Thanks a lot, Tom & Cathy. Big hug - also to Bass. :)
