Interaction with guests
We are not always available, but we have local friends who deputise if we are away from Noosa and are always willing to help.
Other things to note

Some books & games available and baby porta cot if needed.
There is a strong sense of wilderness-like seclusion, but there are neighbours (an unobtrusive granny flat is located in the grounds). So no parties is a basic house rule.

In a previous life I was a secondary teacher and gallery owner. Now I am nine times a grandmother. The grandchildren adore visiting the house, fishing, kayaking and adventuring. I adore having them there.
I'm fascinated by inter-cultural interaction and have travelled to most continents over the last 40 years. I also love reading on the deck and kayaking on the river. Also local aqua-aerobics and having lazy breakfasts by the river at Noosaville or in Hastings Street.
