A 45 minute drive will get you to Noosa and a trip to the Eumundi Markets is an easy 30 minute drive.
If you want a nice quiet retreat to come back to after a busy day's sightseeing, enjoy a swim in the pool and relax with your favorite drink, then this is the place for you.
On a nice clear evening, ask about checking out the stars with our 12" Dobsonian telescope. Richard is always keen to introduce people to a bit of stargazing.
We are very easy going and the accommodations situation is such that you come and go without disturbing us. We do ask that noise is keep down after 10.00pm.
You are free to use our swimming pool and common sense around the pool applies. Any children must be supervised in the pool at all times.
The hosts were welcoming without being intrusive. I believe this is a great base for discovering the beauty of the area. The property is well equipped, clean and very comfortable. I have no hesitation in recommending this property
Richard and Helen were both welcoming and informative when we arrived. The unit was very spacious with all the necessities and clean. They even had food in the fridge and cupboards for our first breakfast. Would highly recommend for anyone to stay here. It was lovely!
For my first AirBnB experience, it was great! Richard provided a beautiful place in a beautiful area for us! The house was very clean and tidy, they made sure we were well looked after. Will definitely stay here again.
Richard made us feel very welcome by providing detailed directions, leaving a light on for our arrival as we arrived after dark, and provision of basic foods, along with a folder highlighting local attractions, directions and services.
The apartment was clean and well kept, with a lovely deck to sit on in the morning sun.
The facilities for the mobile impaired were an added bonus as I was travelling with my Mum.
I will definitely be back for my next escape.
It was great staying at Richard and Helen's. They were friendly and generous. The unit is roomy and was ideal for us. Finding food already stocked in the refrigerator was a blessing. We will certainly be recommending to our family and friends.

About the Host, Richard
I am originally from New Zealand and my wife Helen is from the UK. We have lived in Caloundra for the last 30 years so this is well and truly home. We both enjoy travel, meeting fellow Travellers and discussing all the adventures and places that Travellers enjoy.
I work running my own business and Helen is a nurse at a local aged care facility.
Our other interests include our 1963 Ford Thunderbird which is great for a bit of weekend cruising. We also enjoy a little amateur Astronomy and given a nice clear evening I can be encouraged to get out the telescope for a bit of stargazing.
Good food, a glass of wine and good friends always make for an enjoyable time so why not come and join us, we'd love to have you stay.
