Everything about this place exceeded our expectations! The owners of this property were the kindest people. Everything was super clean upon arrival, and exactly as described / shown in the photos! We are looking forward to staying again with Chris and Trish in the near future! I like the private entrance we had to our area, and covered parking we found spacious! Two washrooms were great to have when traveling with two children! Chris and Trish go out of their way to make you feel most comfortable. I highly recommend staying here! I know we'll be back!!

Thanks Paul. It was a pleasure having you and your family staying here.It really does suit a family, having two bathrooms and letting you come and go as you please through your own entrance. We loved the way you all were so enthusiastic about exploring the local area and beyond, and really look forward to you all coming back for another visit. So glad you loved Australia! We loved learning more about life on Vancouver Island too!

Chris & Trish are very nice and professional host. Me and my friend are both enjoy staying in Chris' property.

It is located in the ideal location to Brisband, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast plus the property is a few block away from beach itself. Local shopping centre is 5 minutes driving distance. It has woolie and other restaurants and local shops.

The rooms are very comfortable and sizes are generous. It will fit two couples or couple with children comfortable.

I have no hesitating to recommend future travellers.

We are glad you both enjoyed your stay at The Friendly Chat B&B. You certainly made the most of the location, fitting in a lot of sightseeing during your stay. Although we don't have the beaches of the Gold or Sunshine Coasts, we are more than happy with our part of Moreton Bay and its cooling breezes. We look forward to seeing you again!

We're glad you and your Mum enjoyed your stay at The Friendly Chat B&B so much.It was great to see you two making the most of the kitchen facilities too. Pleased you were able to make the short trip from Chandler back to the peace and quiet - certainly much quieter than the Indy! You're welcome back any time.

Trish and Chris made us so welcome - their thoughtfulness was extraordinary. We lacked for nothing and "The Friendly Chat" provided us with great accomodation. The rooms were spacious and comfortable, the kitchen more than adequate and it felt like home away from home. The location was perfect for Manly as well as bike riding and windsurfing and we were very grateful that we could stay 8 nights. Thanks guys it was great !

You and your family are welcome back any time! We appreciated the care you took of the property while you were here. Being so considerate of noise for us and neighbours didn't go unnoticed either. We're so glad you were able to make the most of the Bayside location that we have. It certainly turned on beautiful weather for you during your stay - even if conditions weren't the greatest for the sailing competition! Hope to see you again!

We really enjoyed having the three of you stay with us. You made our job easy! It was great to see you using many of the facilities that we provide for a homely stay. You certainly made the most of what the local area has to offer, particularly with the nearby park and waterfront. Safe travels!

The Friendly Chat B & B was our home away from home. Chris and Trish are the most hospitable people who go out of their way to help and give you local information. The kitchen and bathroom amenities are way beyond anything you would get in a five star accommodation. Location-wise it is close to the water so you get lovely cool breezes for a great night's sleep as well as providing the opportunity for lovely walks.
It was a pleasure to stay at The Friendly Chat and look forward to another visit with Chris and Trish.

“Great place to stay. New renovation and great hosts”
Reviewed 7 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We really enjoyed staying with Chris and Trish. We had the ensuited queen bedroom with adjacent access to the guest open plan Kitchenette and Lounge room. Even from this level we had views of Waterloo Bay with a flock of black swans. The area is surprisingly quiet with plentiful birdlife. Chris has a special continental breakfast menu, very enjoyable.
