We had an excellent time at Pieter and Jayne's lovely place. They were great hosts despite a difficult week for them. Highly recommended: our best AirBnB experience so far!
This accommodation is a wonderful haven backing onto the national parkland. Pieter greeted us as we arrived and explained everything we needed to know for our stay. Whilst we didn't have a lot of opportunity to catch up with Pieter or Jayne, we were made to feel very much at home. The self-contained unit is very well set up and we appreciated the little 'extras' that were included such as the breakfast starter pack. The neighbourhood was very quiet and we slept really well. It was wonderful to wake up to the sounds of the birds in the parkland environment. Highly recommended.
The accommodation was extremely comfortable and in a quiet area with parkland walks. The little dogs were always delighted to see us.
Pieter and Jayne were friendly and welcoming and the welcome pack in the refrigerator was extensive. We enjoyed our stay very much.
Peter and Jayne were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. They gave us plenty of ideas for places to go and things to do and even provided breakfast, milk and bread on the first day! The description of the unit is accurate and very comfortable and modern. The kitchen had all the appliances that you would have at home, and it was great to have a TV in the living area and bedroom plus a huge choice of DVD's to watch. There was plenty of room for my husband and I and our 11 month old son. It was important for us for find something that was kid friendly and this was perfect for us. Noosa beach is only a short drive away and shops are close by. The area is quiet and the property backs onto bushland and a kids playground is a short walk away. The deck and the pool were great outdoor areas to help you unwind and the BBQ was very handy. Pieter and Jayne have really thought of everything and we were so glad we booked with them. We had a wonderful holiday and will hopefully be back again soon.
This was our introduction to airbnb and a delightful one it was. The description of the facility and location were accurate, albeit understated. From the outset we were so impressed by the flair, comfort and attention to detail in this setup. The host family was so hospitable and generous. This surely must rate as a superb example of what an airbnb apartment can be.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the detached s/c and well equipped unit. Rooms and bathroom were clean and nicely decorated with all amenities in place. We liked the bird's concerts in the morning and the peaceful atmosphere of the garden. Piet and Jayne show great hospitality and are readily giving tips, advice and assistance. There are so many things to see and to do in the Noosa region that we had not time enough to enjoy the place. We would happily return to them during a next trip to the Sunshine Coast.
We loved staying in this apartment. The location is so close to the national parks- perfect for our active lifestyle! The apartment had everything we needed, and P + J were fantastic hosts! So thoughtful, informative and respectful. This is a gem- highly recommend to a person traveling alone or a couple.

We have a large house surrounded by parkland and an empty self-contained unit (100m^2). The children are at University in Brisbane, and so now that everything is quiet we have decided to become involved with Airbnb. We have hosted Couchsurfers and Helpx people, now with Airbnb we have the chance to meet and help people enjoy our beautiful home and local area. We hope to meet you soon! - Pieter & Jayne
