About this listing

The space

If you are looking for a relaxing escape, then we have a beautiful room for you.

This is a very large room with a sitting area at one end, and a very comfortable queen size bed at the other. (Previous guests have commented that is it the size of a suite). This is one of two guest rooms we have listed on airbnb. Guest bedrooms are upstairs.

Facilities in your room include:

- Netflix
- Wifi
- DVD player
- Air conditioning
- Comfortable Queen Size Bed
- IPod docking station
- Two comfortable wing back chairs, with footrests.

You will have exclusive use of your own private bathroom and toilet
(no bath sorry). We provide fresh clean linen and towels. We have two bathrooms upstairs, and you will have private use of one of them (both of them are included in our photo's on this listing).

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 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.

fabulous breakfast at nearby popular Bulli Cafe.

We have dined there many times and they have always exceeded our expectations. Or you can dine at the Surf Club approx. 10 mins walk from our home. There is also an Indian restaurant a 5 mins walk away.

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.

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.

Wonderful house just a stroll from the beach. Brett and Lorraine are friendly and helpful hosts, with two lovely dogs. The local patrolled beach is great and usually quiet. Perfect place for a beach getaway!

Brett and Lorraine were the perfect hosts. They made us feel so welcome in their beautiful home. They have found a piece of paradise and it was an absolute privilege to share it for a few days. The accommodation was spacious, luxurious, comfortable and spotlessly clean. We enjoyed a lovely breakfast every morning sitting on the deck. We loved meeting their two gorgeous dogs Dolly and Max. The township of Marcoola is very quaint and pretty. It was just a short drive to Noosa and Coolum Beach and very convenient to Mooloolaba and Maroochydore. I would highly recommend Brett and Lorraine's place to anyone visiting the Sunshine Coast. Thank you Brett and Lorraine for a wonderful stay!

Brett and Lorraine are the perfect hosts. The communication upfront was clear and friendly. We felt welcome from the very first minute. The room is big and very clean. It is more like a suite and not a room. A private bathroom and toilet make it a even more pleasant stay. Breakfast was included in the front area of the house with a beautiful set up. A fresh breakfast every morning was a pleasant surprise and is in line with the whole experience. Our privacy was respected and so did we respect theirs. Although both where always open for a friendly chat. Lorraine made sure our stay was even better by offering help wherever she could. We particularly enjoyed the fact that noosa was a 30 minute bus ride away because it gives you the opportunity to explore marcoola and Coolum( the nearest town) a little more although the bigger towns are still easy to get to. The beach is only a 4 minute walk away with life guard service. All in all the perfect stay for couples or people who enjoy a quiet beach retreat. We would very much recommend this Airbnb stay with Lorraine and Brett as it's way more than you'd expect for what you pay. We'll be back once we get the chance ! Regards Seb and Laura

Staying at Lorraine and Brett's home was a lovely experience, the moment I entered their home I felt relaxed, every little detail was thought to make your stay a memorable one. I loved my room a White French Cottage feel by the beachside... Simply beautiful! I highly recommend staying here, the location is beautiful at Mt Coolum beachside. If you like an intimate getaway, away from the crowds, Marcoola is perfect. Great for couples and singles. Lorraine and Brett are great hosts! You won't be disappointed. See you again soon Brett and Lorraine Regards Angela
