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.

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.

Our stay with Janis and John was perfect! The house was right on the water which made exploring in the included canoe easy and amazing. It was an ideal location with a short walk to the beach, restaurants, grocery store, etc. Highly recommend!
Everything was just as described in the listing and we definitely were able to make ourselves feel at home. As the weather was very hot and humid, it was great that we had the pool to use whenever we needed to cool down.
With only a short walk (15 mins) to the Esplanade and being in a safe area, we were able to walk to dinner when we felt like going out and also to see the fireworks on the foreshore New Year's Eve.
Having Rosie (the Labrador) there was a nice treat, as we really enjoy the company of dogs.
Amazing place with a fabulous pool. Janice was super nice and super helpful. This place is a steal for the price.
This is an amazing apartment that has a lot to offer. It is very spacious, and the hosts provide absolutely everything you would need. There are even some additional extras that were not expected but very warmly received.
The ability to park the car securely is an added bonus.
The location is ideal for a short walk to the beach, and an even shorter walk to local amenities. There are an abundance of close by eateries to choose from.
We were made to feel very welcome by the hosts (and the dog) and would highly recommend this apartment.
Great house, great hosts and a great dog. Had a fantastic time there and would recommend it to everyone.
What an amazing location and truly wonderful hosts - we feel so lucky to have stayed and enjoyed a slice of living here. Can't wait to come back!
John, Janice, and Rosie were great hosts! They gave us a quick five minute tour of our space and showed us where we could go for a great eat out in town. The addition of the canoe was nice as it made for a great sunset row. I highly recommend staying with John and Janice as the experience was quite possibly the easiest airbnb experience I've ever had.
We are an Australian couple who loved travelling so much we set up a tour company specialising in Middle Eastern and Asian countries, but expanded into many areas.
Now we enjoy the beautiful Sunshine Coast of eastern Australia, but still travel a few times each year.
We enjoy meeting people and sharing experiences and ideas and have a coastal home that easily accommodates visiting friends and family with space still for hosting travellers from overseas as well as other parts of Asutralia.
