5/5 Excellent

Great location
The place was so clean and the location just wonderful! Would stay there again.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect location!
What a fantastic, property! We’ve just had a 3 night stay for a school sporting carnival and loved the convenience to the sporting complex, beautiful beach and foreshore across the road and clean, well appointed doggo friendly townhouse… will definitely be returning next year!

5/5 Excellent

Perfect location
The property was well located to allow easy exploration of the sunshine coast. Dawn had thought of all the little things you may need eg cling wrap etc which made for an easy stay.

5/5 Excellent

Sunsets over the water and easy walks, swimming and exploring
We had a wonderful stay. The accomodation was just as described, plenty of room with easy access to water sports, pet swimming/walking. We enjoyed the extra touches like being able to borrow the kayaks and bikes. It was convenient having a high chair, baby cot and barrier for baby/toddlers. We still really had to watch the toddler with the stairs and bannisters as she could squeeze through the space. Stairs could be difficult with a physical disability. The yard was well secured for animals or children. The kitchen had most of the small basic things you have in your home kitchen like condiments and cling wrap etc. we would definitely recommend the place and wished we would of had a few more days.

5/5 Excellent

The weather was terrible, but the house was devine
The accommodation was in a great location and the price was right. All the amenities where spot on. It had a homely feel which was great for us. As my wife and I, our 3 kids and Nana enjoyed it immensely. Hope to visit again in the future.
