We provide breakfast of quality plunge or pod coffee, tea, juice, fruit, toast,spreads etc, included in the price. 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.

My husband Brett and I have been happily married for 28 years and have 2 amazing sons, and one beautiful daughter in law. Last year we became first time grandparents to Oliver, who we cherish. We share our home with two gentle, loving golden retrievers named Max and Dolly.
My husband works in the gas industry and I work in admin.
Family is everything to us!
We enjoy beach walks, reading, listening to music, going to the theatre, watching tv and spending time relaxing with friends and family. We live a peaceful life, in what we consider to be paradise.
