Gold Coast residents will soon have a chance to see their holiday home change hands.
Alpaca Holiday Homes will take over a former beach home, where they will be building a home for a Christmas family.
“This house is going to be for a family of four.
It’s going to have an outdoor dining area, a fireplace and it’s going be all about the Christmas tree,” Mr Alpaca said.”
We’re doing this to really make it a family-friendly holiday home and a holiday home for the community.”
The company is building a new beach home in the city of Ballinskellig.
“It’s going take some time but I’m sure it will be a lovely home for people who want to come to Ballinskelg and just relax and have a great time,” he said.
Mr Alpacas said his business was already selling holiday homes in Ballins, Wollongong and Wollam.
“People come here from all over Australia, but I think we’re one of the only ones doing it,” he joked.
Mr Ballins is one of Ballin’s major attractions, with an estimated 5,000 visitors a year.
“Ballins has an incredible amount of people, people who love shopping and shopping for food, but the Christmas market is also a great event,” Mr Ballins said.
He said he hoped to sell the home, which he said cost $7 million, to a local family.
“We want to do it for the local community and also to help people who might not be able to afford a holiday or can’t afford it.”
The project is expected to be completed in the next couple of weeks.
