About this listing
This spacious property is perfect for a short getaway, a few days to explore the Sunshine Coast, or a longer stay to simply enjoy the lifestyle. It is also only a short walk to The Mantra, where many workshops and seminars are held on the coast.
An early morning swim at the beautiful Mooloolaba Beach or in the pool before breakfast is the perfect start to the day. (At the beginning of each stay, we provide a few days of cereals, juice, milk, coffee/tea, fruit, bread, spreads, etc.) Later on, a few hours cycling the tracks following the beach or canoeing the wide canals is the best way to be part of this lifestyle.
This modern private space occupies almost one floor of a large coastal home. There is a bedroom with queen size bed, a private ensuite bathroom, a well equipped small kitchen, a large relaxing lounge area and a dining area. There is also a large separate laundry available with washer, drier and ironing facilities.
We include quality linen including sheets, extra pillows and towels.
The kitchenette is for your exclusive use, with sink, large frig and bench top hot plates. There are also normal appliances including microwave, electric kettle, toaster, sandwich maker etc. There are base condiments and all cooking and dining necessities, including frying pans, saucepans, cutting boards, serving platters, etc.
In the bedroom, there is a large flat screen smart tv with many channels through satellite TV, as well as hundreds of excellent movies available to play through the tv, - if the multitude of movie channels on satellite are not enough!
The large lounge / dining area leads to the pool and jetty area. There are many seating/relaxing areas perfect for reading in comfort with a peaceful view of the water, both inside and out. In the lounging area there is a quality DOCKING STATION (and charger for iphones) as well as a stereo system with a vast eclectic range of CDs for your enjoyment.
The lounge / dining space opens onto a large covered area with a heated swimming pool (October to May). We FREELY offer a variety of "pool toys", to make lolling in the water even more comfortable. The pool is partly shaded so overexposure to sun can be avoided.
There is an area for al fresco dining near the pool with a private barbeque here also.This area then leads down onto a lower garden which then extends to a small private beach with a large PRIVATE JETTY. This is absolutely perfect for morning coffee or sunset drinks, with views across the water.

Great place! Wonderful hosts and doggies! Perfect location! Fabulous start to an amazing holiday!
A lovely apartment in the ground floor of Janice & John's house in a great location - far enough from the beach to be away from the crowds, but close enough to be anywhere you want to go in a few minutes. Canoeing on the canal was a highlight.
We arrived while Janice was out, but she gave us a very thorough welcome and tour as soon as she got home. The apartment has everything you need.
And the new puppy's super cute too!
The reservation was canceled 9 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We had an amazing holiday in Mooloolaba. Janice and John were lovely hosts and their house is very beautiful. Would highly recommend this property!
We had a wonderful & very relaxing holiday staying here. It was just what we needed since i was 35 weeks pregnant! I could rest by the pool while Matt got to kayak the canals & ride a bike around mooloolaba! The shops were very close so we could walk to lunch/dinner & the beach. The hosts John & Janice were lovely plus their dog Rosie was very well behaved. The breakfast food supplies were a great touch! We wished we could have stayed longer!
From the moment we arrived we felt so welcomed. The accommodation was ideal...clean, convenient and very relaxing. We will definitley be back!
Had a lovely stay in Mooloolaba. Comfortable appartment and so handy to everywhere.
Enjoyed Rosie's company and would definitely like to stay again.
