About this listing
AIR-CONDITIONED | WIRELESS INTERNET | POOL | KITCHEN | BATH & SHOWER | FAMILY ROOM PRICE
Set in the heart of the Sunshine Coast, our family welcome you to stay in our self-contained garden studio. Suitable for singles, couples, families sharing the one room with kitchenette. May be unsuited to elderly or infirm due to uneven ground access. Children very welcomed, we know what it is like to travel as a larger family. Cot and Highchair available on request.
Our AirBNB is a large, standalone studio flat set within our family garden. Max 2 adults. Ideal for 2 kids. We can accomodate more but please request. The space is approximately 8x4m, alongside the pool with a small, fenced patio area to sit or BBQ. COOKING Inside the apartment is a small kitchenette with a fridge, sink, microwave, coffee machine, toaster, egg maker, kettle, rice cooker, steamer, plug in grill. We provide tea and coffee, milk, cereal, bread, butter, spread and if you are lucky our resident chickens may grace you with some fresh eggs. We have a variety of drinks for purchase.
BATHROOM We have a large bath suited for the tallest guest or perhaps 3 children! Above this is a "rain shower" for the perfect experience after the beach. Please note that the shower is inside the bath and so may not be easily accessible for the elderly, infirm or those with ambulatory concerns. Please contact us before booking if you would like to discuss your needs. Also in the studio bathroom is a toilet and sink. Towels, hair-dryer are provided.
LIVING AREA The living area includes the kitchenette and features a queen bed. One sofa converts to a double bed and we are very happy to put in camp beds or mattresses to accomodate any larger families. As the bedroom/living room is one room, our space is best suited to a family travelling together rather than groups of more than 2 adults - again if you do wish to book a different configuration, please contact us. We may have another ensuite double bedroom available inside the main home. The room features a large television, wireless internet, a DVD player, a large collection of movies, board games and books. We include brochures to many of the local attractions and can help guide you if you would like to visit Fraser Island or go 4WD on the beach.
OUTDOORS With the self contained flat, there is no need to come into the main house. However the garden, pool etc is shared space. Outside the unit is a small area with some seating for 2 persons, Guest may use the barbeque and pool and it is an ideal place to rest after a day surfing or exploring the area.
This isn't a hotel, it is a homestay - we aim to provide everything that you may need but we are still learning and so are happy to take on any suggestions you may have to make our next guests doubly happy! We are just starting our AirBNB journey and are offering budget rates whilst we learn the ropes and add the mod-cons, we hope that you can help us to make your stay enjoyable. Come and spend your holiday here with us!
Shared Pool, garden
Interaction with guests
Our family are extremely active and outgoing so we will give you lots
privacy whilst being available to answer any questions or to help you in anyway we can.
We have 3 active children 12,11 and 8. They are very sporty and love surfing and lifesaving and so are mostly out or sleeping. When they are home they love to live in the pool. In our family utilised area there is a large cubby house, a trampoline, a pool, footballs, netballs and lots of energy and excitement. Use of our children's equipment is welcomed but is entirely at your own risk. Our children are very friendly and love new friends and so your children will be made very very welcome if they decide they'd like to play.

We welcome you to the spectacular Sunshine Coast, the place to stay for rest and relaxation. With everything the big city doesn't offer - miles of beautiful beaches, scenic hinterland and small town glamour.
We are a welsh family who have lived in Australia for over 15 years and are proud to call the Sunshine Coast home. We love to travel and to meet a diverse range of people. Our studio is semi private, set to the back of our garden and we hope to provide reasonable accomodation close to everything in a family surrounding. We spend most of our spare time at the beach or browsing local markets - our children love to surf, Andrew trail runs and Vivienne loves to drink coffee.
Any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
