Other Things to Note

No smoking and no pets.
From a wellness point of view as well as an environmental one, we do request that guests be economical about water usage.
I'm afraid that we don't allow access to our kitchen stove - but please use the kitchen for making drinks and the occasional light snacks for which we'll supply cutlery etc. We supply a picnic backpack if you wish to prepare for an outdoor lunch in the national park or on the beach. For hot meals, Noosa is full of excellent restaurants that we encourage you to sample.
What a treat staying with Christine and Richard was. Right from first email contact which was prompt and welcoming. The location is to die for, I loved the national park and the walk down to Hastings st. the house itself was lovely and represented accurately. Many lovely touches and Richard's breakfast and insights were superb.Thankyou for a lovely Noosa experience, the local knowledge you shared was priceless.
My husband and I attended a wedding in Noosa and unfortunately only stayed for one night at Noosa Rainforest Retreat. We would have liked to stay longer. The location is perfect: very quiet yet in walking distance to the beach and Hastings Street. The room was a good size, including cupboard space and chairs, the bed was comfy and the view out the window into the trees was lovely. Christine and Richard were lovely hosts and we enjoyed the cooked breakfast in the morning.
We had the most amazing time staying at the Noosa Rainforest Retreat. The house is located in the in the rainforest and is short walk to the shops, beach and Noosa National Park. Christine & Richard were fantastic hosts and Richard cooked us the most delicious breakfast each morning. We really had a fantastic time and look forward to visiting again. Thank you Christine & Richard
We were delighted by our accommodation with Richard and Christine who both made us feel very welcome.
In booking we sought an Airbnb as close to Little Cove in Noosa as possible and Mitti Street is very quiet, but gives fantastic access to Little Cove and the National Parks walking trails.
We realised when booking that this experience offers a bedroom and shared bathroom, and both were comfortable and very clean.
There is also very generous access to an oversize raised deck area to the rear which abuts the National Park.
The living area and kitchen space can also be shared which are very spacious and would be very comfortable if the weather closed in. We were fortunate to have three days of warm blue-sky Noosa days so beaches, walking through the National Park and restaurants mainly filled our hours........fabulous!
Richard and Christine have both had lives rich with experiences and make enjoyable company. They are experienced hosts and know how to share their home in a very relaxed manner.
Richard is the breakfast chef and absolutely different and delicious meals were prepared for us during the three days we stayed in Mitti Street!
Christine's place was lovely--a quiet room in a beautifully sunlit home. The location is awesome--as it is easy walking distance to Noosa and Hastings street. This was so key, as parking in Noosa can be a nightmare! Was really convenient to leave my car at Christine's. Breakfast was lovely and really helped start my day off well. I am Paleo and really appreciated them catering to my needs! Thanks, Christine and Richard!
We loved staying here! Christine and Richard were lovely hosts, very welcoming, and happy to talk with us about our trip and where to go in town. Their home was gorgeous, the room clean and comfortable, and the patio in the rainforest was beautiful. We wish we could have stayed longer!
