The space

If you are looking for a relaxing, beach escape, then we have a lovely room for you. It is a standard size room with a luxurious pillow top queen size bed. The room is air conditioned and has a ceiling fan. You will have private use of a bathroom/toilet
(no bath). This is one of two guest rooms we have listed on airbnb. We provide fresh clean linen and towels. Guest rooms are upstairs.

This bedroom is standard in size, however when you feel like relaxing retreat to the comfort of the library where you can sit in luxurious armchairs whilst you watch your own TV, Foxtel, DVD. This area includes a shared bar fridge and tea/coffee making station for use of both guestrooms.

We cater for adults only (not children) - thank you for your understanding.

We prefer a two night booking, but will consider a one night booking, if requested, where possible.

We provide breakfast - good quality plunge or pod coffee, tea, fruit, juice, toast, spreads, included in the price. We do not offer a cooked breakfast.

As with a typical bed and breakfast we do not offer kitchen or laundry facilities, as our insurance policy does not cover this.

If you're after beautiful summers, and not so cold winters, pristine beaches, a friendly welcome and an incomparable sense of peace and calm, then stay with us. We are passionate about our home and what we have to offer. We have done all the hard work, so you can simply arrive and relax. There is something very special about our home - It’s a combination of the hypnotic sound of the ocean lapping on the shore, the cooling breezes that waft throughout the home, the unhurried pace of life in this quaint community, the abundance of restaurants/cafes within walking distance, there are 2 indulgent beauty salons, and a hair dressing salon within a 2 minute walk. Aside from the natural beauty of the area, there is a sense of serenity that allows you to disconnect and completely unwind. It is a haven, unspoilt by traffic or crowds, where you will feel like time is not relevant.

Our home is situated directly behind the sand dunes in the tranquil "Town of Seaside" Marcoola. We are a beachside community of natural untouched foreshore with boardwalks, walkways and bike paths. A two minute walk through the nature reserve along the boardwalk will lead you to Marcoola Beach; one of the widest pristine beaches on the Sunshine Coast. A patrolled swimming area is a 450m stroll up the beach.

We have verandahs to the front and rear of our home and we dine outside most evenings. The stars are our lighting and the sound of the ocean crashing on the shore lulls us into a state of complete relaxation. The gentle sea breeze completes the descent into serenity. You are welcome to dine on the verandah and experience this for yourself.

Sunshine Coast Airport is conveniently located nearby, as are Twin Waters and Palmer Resort Coolum Golf Courses.
There is a bus stop within an easy 5 mins walk from our home, which is very convenient.

Some of the things you may like to do in our area could include:

* Stroll to the beach for an early morning swim, followed by fabulous breakfast at nearby popular Bulli Cafe.

* There are number of restaurants in the area, including Default Restaurant (open Thurs, Fri, Sat and Sun evenings - bookings essential) which is an easy 2 min stroll from our home, a newly opened Indian restaurant 2 mins walk, Curleys a 5 mins walk, and the Surf Club an easy 10 mins stroll or take the free courtesy bus.
* Watch the sun set over beautiful Mount Coolum from the
* There are a number of lovely picnic spots close by (within
walking distance). We have a quaint wicker picnic basket which you are welcome to use. You are most welcome to use our portable picnic table and chairs.

* There are abundant opportunities to exercise, with bike paths and walkways running the length of the boardwalk.(URL HIDDEN)
You may also like to try some of the many activities that the Sunshine Coast has to offer, like: sea kayaking, surfing and SUP boarding , scuba diving, hiking in the National Parks or simply picnicking on the beach, or visit Steve Irwin's Australia Zoo. Spend a day at Montville in the Blackall Range or enjoy the popular Eumundi Markets. Explore the different beaches that the Sunshine Coast has to offer – most popular beaches include Mooloolaba (approx 20 mins drive), Noosa is approx 20 mins and Coolum Beach is also very popular and is about a 10 min drive.

Or you may just like to completely relax and unwind in our tranquil surroundings. Your stay is all about you, and we will give you the privacy you need to truly enjoy your visit.

If you would like to, you are welcome to borrow our bicycles, umbrella and beach chairs.

There is a visitors car park directly across the road from our home. There are also car spaces located in front of the homes in our street (but the homeowners use those). We would appreciate if you could use the visitors car park, and thank you for your understanding.

We are empty nesters, and have 2 beautiful golden retrievers, who are gentle and loving who live in our home. Our eldest son is married and they have recently had our first grandson, and our youngest son is living in the UK and working in hospitality. We are a happy family who enjoy spending time together.

We look forward to welcoming you to our slice of heaven.
