Our comfortable home is 2mins from a very private beautiful beach on the Sunshine Coast Australia. We are in a little estate called "The Town of Seaside" which has a lake with a view of Mount Coolum. Only a short drive from Sunshine Coast Airport but only 10mins to beautiful Coolum Beach or 20mins to Noosa. This area is surrounded by natural beauty from the Ocean to the Mountains..We can tell you the best locations to spot kangaroos and koalas in our area. Many local activities Swimming, canoeing, diving, hiking, kayaking.
We have a bus 5 mins walk which goes both north and south and connects to shopping centres, world famous beaches, markets, and attractions like Australia Zoo and Underwater World and Eumundi Markets.
Great restaurants and cafes are only a short walk. We enjoy coffee out and we can point you in the right direction for the best coffee shops. We are spoiled for choice for breakfast lunch and dinner very close to home but of course you are most welcome to use our ktichen as I said.
We have travelled extensively ourselves and have made lifetime friends. We enjoy meeting new people but we also realise that you need your own space and privacy so will respect your needs.
We look forward to meeting you.

The house is only 5min to coolum beach by walk.The bed room is very clean and classy decorated. It is very convinent with the private bathroom and toilet! we had a very tight sleep there.
The hosts are very hospitable people. They really love travelling.You will find loads of beautiful staff they collected from the world.
That one night stay is amazing to us.
Bob and Sharon made us feel very welcome in their home from the outset. Their home is modern and in an exclusive and uniquely styled village. There are shops and lovely restaurants nearby. We were able to chat often and share experiences with Sharon and Bob which made our stay so pleasant. Thanks Bob and Sharon and we hope to catch up in the near future.
Thank you for all your kindness and sharing your time with us as well. We did enjoy our chats and time spent sharing our joys and our struggles as we age haha.
Hope to see you again soon here or down in Brissy. Keep stretching ! Bob is onto it but I still haven't made it a routine but I WILL!! Bob and Sharon
Bob and Sharon are the most generous and hospitable of hosts making sure I had all I required and often going out of their way to make things easy for me. The bed was very comfortable and the room simply and tastefully decorated. They kindly lent me a bike. Where they live is very picturesque and quiet. Great for bike riding even when you are lost! If you like baths this is the place to be. I will hopefully be returning.
Rosemary hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay on the coast. You are a very special lady with many talents. We really enjoyed meeting you and your love of life is very infectious. Keep painting and teaching and travelling. Maybe we will meet again one day. Bob and Sharon

Great hosts who were accommodating to our needs during our visit and really helped us by giving even a tour of the town. The place was immaculate and with enough space. Also the hosts had time for having long breakfast and conversations. Loved the stay and the accommodating guests during the start of our trip in Queensland, Australia.
The Description & Directions as posted on Air B'n'B were accurate.
The Hosts were welcoming, even though we arrived later than expected due to Car trouble.
The House was nicely decorated, and clean & tidy. The Room was exactly as shown in the Photo. There were clean Bath & Beach Towels in the Room for us to use. They also had a Hair Dryer in the Room too. The Bathroom had fragrant Soap for us to use.
The Breakfast was good, with choices of Cereals, Toast, Jam, Juice, Tea/Coffee, etc.
The Neighbourhood seemed quiet & safe.
The local Marcoola Beach is 5 minutes walk or less away (via the back Gate). It is a fairly quiet (not over-crowded) Beach, with some Patrolled Swimming Areas.
Overall, it was a pleasant place to stay. :)
About the Host, Bob & Sharon
We are a husband and wife who have been married now for (Hang on I have to do the maths!!) 40years. Boy where have those years gone?
We have always loved travelling and meeting new people and we have passed the travel bug onto our 4 children who also do a lot of travelling.
We have an engineering business which we have operated for over 30 years. Our factory is at Coolum where we manufacture large tanks for hot and chilled water storage as well as a cleverly designed steel rotating compost bin so two completely different markets. We love to spend time at the beach and drink great coffee, see a good movie but most of all spending time with family and good friends is one of our greatest joys in life.
