About Maggie Cruice

Hubby and I live in Sydney and are now retired. We have family living on the Gold Coast and we spend several months throughout the year, visiting our holiday home. We love relaxing on our patio, pottering in our garden, playing social golf (the Gold Coast has many excellent golf courses open to the public), and catching up with family. We especially love visiting during the winter months to escape the chilly weather in Sydney.

Maggie Cruice purchased this house in 2002

Why Maggie Cruice chose Labrador

We bought this home because of its hilltop location, lovely Broadwater views and proximity to the waterfront restaurants & cafes. We really appreciate the balmy sea breezes which are especially welcoming on those warmer summer days. We also love the peace and quiet of our neighbourhood, and our morning walks along the waterfront parklands on Marine Parade.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with our holiday home because of the north facing aspect and the outlook and views enjoyed from the rear dining terrace. Our terrace overlooks a big tropical garden/lawn area and a large swimming pool and is very private and peaceful. We love eating on the terrace (breakfast, lunch & dinner!) and enjoying the wonderful views of the coast and Broadwater. Our north facing aspect and covered patio area means that we can enjoy both sun & shade all year round.

Amazing views from this beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed during the Commonwealth Games with another family, there was plenty of room for the eight of us. The house was easy to find and a short walk to public transport or to Marine Parade with plenty of restaurants and cafes. The views from the balconies over the Gold Coast were gorgeous and the kids loved the pool.

The owner was very helpful before our stay as well as leaving plenty of information at the house. I highly recommend this wonderful property!

Stunning property

  • 5 of 5

This was a first family holiday together in a rental and it was thoroughly enjoyable and had ample of room for the seven of us. Top marks for cleanliness, location, amenities, etc. Our host Maggie has thought of every comfort imaginable throughout her lovely home. We all had a great time in this spacious property and lovely swimming pool and can recommend this property to anyone looking for a 'home away from home'. Tricia

Everything you need in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Firstly, Maggie was an excellent host! Emails turned around quickly and plenty of useful info. The house has plenty of space, and just about every gadget and bit of cutlery you could need. Location is perfect as it is very convient but very quiet and tucked out of the way. 10-15 minutes drive to the theme parks and Pacific Fair. The 10 minute walk to the water and cafes well worth.

The pool was a fantastic asset, as was the view. Plenty of room so 3 adults and 4 kids didn’t trip over each other! We left knowing we had made the right choice.

Fantastic Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here and everything was magnificent, from the 1st contact we had with Maggie through to the spotlessly clean house, pool and gardens.

Everything you would possibly need was in the house. Great location, so handy to everything, from beaches, restaurants and theme parks. Highly recommended.

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish, this property is a wonderful place to stay. Upon arrival, the whole house was perfectly clean and tidy. The pool was spotless and well maintained and our children used it everyday (although it was a little chilly for the grown ups!). The grass was also mowed during our stay and the garden as a whole was very tidy. Communication with the owners was informative and prompt at all times and we now look forward to returning here to stay in the future.
