Just across the road from the beach to dunk your toes in. One convenient block to Cotton Tree restaurants and Sunday market. Lots of windows and walk out balcony looking north over tree tops to the surf and Mt Coolum makes the flat lovely, light and airy.

The space

Foreshores, the building the flat is in, was probably built in the 1970's. It's a 3 story walk up, and my flat is on the top floor.
I'm a low level consumer, so it's furnished with mostly second hand and re-purposed goods ( I bought the beds brand new though!). No bling here :).
It's a peaceful space where you hear the surf, birds chirping, and see the pelicans take their graceful glide between Maroochydore river and Mooloolaba river each morning and evening. Great sunset views from the balcony too.
We have air-conditioning, but I hardly ever use it... preferring to leave windows and doors open to bring the ocean breeze through. There are usually a few hot humid summer days that pretty much demand I close things up and run the a/c though.

Guest access

As I mentioned, it's a 3 story walk up. So please be aware of this if you have issues with stairs.
Your guest bedroom has a ceiling fan and lot's of screened windows facing South. There is generous wardrobe space, side-table, and a desk and chair.
The shared bathroom has a shower, basin, and W/C with a door.
You're welcome to make yourself at home and use the kitchen and clothes washing machine anytime.

Interaction with guests

You'll find I'm an easy going person. Happy to have a bit of chat, or not... as it suits you.

Other things to note

There is street parking with no time limit, right outside the building. There's also a beach side car park across the street (it has a 4 hour limit).
If you're a reader you're welcome to explore my small library of books... mostly 'personal development' themes.

We were greeted with a really warm welcome on our arrival. Cathy showed us around the house and made sure we were comfortable. The house was clean and tidy, and the balcony is a great spot for watching the sunset. Great views of the ocean nearby and mountains in the distance. Cathy is such an approachable and loveable lady, who is very knowledgable and also an exceptional host. She was flexible to accommodate to our request for an additional night even at last minute's notice. Our experience at Cathy's home was definitely made better with Cathy's presence! highly recommend this listing for anyone visiting the coast!

Cathy was a very welcoming , sincere and fabulous host. She was pleasant company and a great communicator but gave me as much privacy as I wanted  The property was very clean and furnished with lovely pastel shades giving it a peaceful and relaxing feel  The close proximity to the beach and the relaxing sounds of the surf made it special. Waking to the sound of waves entices you to go for early morning walks  The balcony was my favourite place to sit and have a meal or watch the mountain sunsets or just look over the passing holiday makers with the sea breeze  Amongst the many apartment buildings fighting for sea views this one is a real gem

Cathy gave us a very warm welcome and opened her home up to us quite happily. The apartment was comfortable and had all the necessities. It was very clean and had a lovely breeze keeping it cool. Cathy was a great host and I would definitely stay there again.

We had a lovely stay at Cathy's beachside apartment. She was a warm and welcoming host and we enjoyed getting to know her during our visit. The apartment was spotless and a great location for walking to the beach and nearby shops and cafes. We would happily stay here again next time we visit the Sunshine Coast.
