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.
If the extra bed is needed, there is a single futon bed in the lounge area, or a queen size automatic-inflating air bed. We supply extra linen, pillows, towels etc if one of these needs to be used by an extra family member or friend.
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.
FREE: There is a two man canoe / kayak for your use to paddle the waterways, even to Underwater World.
FREE: We have two well maintained bicycles available for your use. We have provided helmets as well. The use of these is all included. We have provided an assortment of board games etc for those lazy afternoons.

Jetty out over the waterway. Private swimming pool. private sitting areas overlooking the water.
We live at the premises and will be there to greet and settle guests in, but after that we are only in touch if you have questions.
Both myself and my partner had an amazing time at this beautiful property. The owners were incredibly welcoming and friendly. They gave us a thorough tour of the property so we knew where everything was, and then left us to our own devices.
We were able to contact them very easily if we needed anything. A beautiful place to stay for a romantic getaway for a few nights.
Thank you Janice

Exactly as it is in the pictures! Gorgeous spot right on the canals. Really enjoyed our stay, we just wish the sun had come out for us so we could have made more use of the lovely pool!
A lovely spot on the river - beautiful outlook and great apartment. The apartment was beautifully furnished and very well-equipped. As the hosts live upstairs, they are easily contactable should you need anything - we found them very accommodating. They also have a lovely, friendly dog who popped in and out during our stay.
Janice and John provide a fantastic alternative to the normal beach apartment hotel/motel accommodation. The outlook over the canal was really peaceful and calming and the breeze so cooling. Rosie their Labrador made us feel like long lost friends. We'd have liked to have spent more time relaxing in the great surroundings but unfortunately our full day on the coast was spent at a swimming carnival. Our late check in on Friday wasn't an issue for them and they couldn't have done more to make us feel at home. John loved the large tv and movies on tap (given that we don't have this at home) as well as the long and very comfortable leather sofas in the lounge area overlooking the pool and canal. A great place to call home when you're next at Mooloolaba. Thank you both for making our stay memorable for all the right reasons!
Where can I start...the moment we arrived at this beautiful home we were greeted with such warmth and hospitality. Janice and John were so accommodating with whatever we needed both in the house and around the area. We had access to the bikes and the kayak and don't even get me started on the pool, absolutely stunning. I was out there every morning and every afternoon. We can not speak more highly of our stay or John and Janice, just wonderful!
A lovely stay in a beautiful property.
Recently spent four days in the self contained apartment on the ground floor of John and Janice's home. A breathtaking setting and an immaculate apartment. John and Janice on hand to help when needed. Pool, bicycles and canoe all added to our enjoyment. A lovely relaxing break. Really enjoyed having Rosie, an extremely well behaved Labrador, around.
A lovely place to stay—all the mod cons and within five minutes of Mooloolaba's main beach. Janice and John are excellent hosts—friendly, helpful, and happy to leave their guests to their own devices. The bikes and kayaks provided are an excellent means of getting around and we loved exploring Mooloolaba. Thanks to Janice and John for helping us have a magnificent holiday break.
Janice and John are both very friendly and generous. She even provided me with some soy and ouster sauce for a stir fry. Rosie is good-natured and the accommodation is spacious, clean and comfortable. We were able to park in the driveway. I would recommend Janice as a host to anybody!
It was just emazing. Great hosts.Thank youuuuuuuuuuu-)
Absolutely superb location and amenities. Everything about the accommodation was first class. Having a swim in "my" private pool was a highlight. I really wasn't ready to leave!
Janice and John are charming, helpful and warm. It is very rare to find such wonderful hosts, a marvellous place to stay AND great location, all at once!!
