About Melissa Wood

Michael & I have been coming to the Sunshine Coast for the past 15 years, when my parents first retired here. We fell in love with the relaxed way of life - the typical Ozzie way - and decided it would be a great location for a holiday home. We initially bought a small 2 bedroom unit in 2001, and upgraded to this amazing apartment in 2008. For 6 years we have kept it to ourselves, but recently made the choice to share it with others. It's a home that needs to be lived in; to sit and watch the world go by on the amazing decks; to use the fabulous private amenities (outdoor living areas, roof-top spa, adirondacks etc.)., and we welcome you to this great space.

We currently live in New York City, and also own and take vacation rentals for our home in Colorado (HA Listing 258968), and our home in the Cayman Islands (HA Listing 3959413). With our personal travel experience (we've lived and worked in 8 countries on 3 continents), we feel we know what other discerning travelers are looking for in a vacation rental and we have now re-designed this house with those points in mind.

Melissa Wood purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Melissa Wood chose Sunshine Coast

The Sunshine Coast is an amazing area to explore. Everything is within easy reach, and we like it's simplicity. It's a very typical 'Ozzie' beach destination, and this property is truly amazing, as you'll see from the photos and when you visit personally.

What makes this apartment unique

This home is unique, and you won't find another apartment like it in Kings Beach. We've decorated it with 'collections' from our years of living overseas, and there is a minor Asian influence. The views are simply stunning, and the private & collective spaces within this incredibly large apartment are both unusual and plentiful. Watching the sunrises & sunsets never gets old, and the sun shines year-round ... it certainly lives up to it's name of the Sunshine Coast!

Stunning, spacious penthouse

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many places across the world but have never had anything as well designed, furnished and appointed as Melissa's fantastic penthouse at Salt on Kings. The massive terraces, affording panoramic views of the beach and surrounding coastline, are so well appointed that one is loathe to wander down the road to the beautiful Kings Beach. The furnishings and fittings are all to a high standard as was the cleanliness of the apartment.

From the initial enquiry through to the booking and subsequent rental Melissa was very easy to contact and genuinely "interested" in her guests. We will definitely be back to Salt on Kings at some stage in the future and will have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this high end accommodation to friends and family.

Spacious Penthouse Apartment with stunning ocean views

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we knew that this apartment was going to be something special. It was very spacious with lots of places to enjoy a meal and a drink but it also has lots of places where you can get away and chill and relax with a good book and a glass of wine whilst enjoying the fresh salt sea air. We were lucky enough to enjoy the new years eve fireworks from the top deck and it was stunning. It has everything that you could want or ever think of from the surf board to the beach towels to the spa bath on the deck to the BBQ on the lower deck with so many different platters and glasses to choose from. The lift from the carpark with the trolley to take up your luggage is a big bonus. It is within walking distance to the beach and a good coffee shop and a few different options for eating out. Melissa was a pleasure to communicate with from the very beginning and nothing was too much trouble for her. The bond was refunded promptly and the entire transaction was a breeze. We will certainly be returning again to this magnificent property and have many happy memories of our stay.

Pictures don't do it justice

  • 5 of 5

Melissa is an incredible host and was very communicative and quick to respond to any questions I had prior to arrival. Everything in the apartment was just as I expected and there were very detailed instructions for all appliances and equipment. What you can't tell from the description and the pictures in the listing is how impressive the views are. The multiple outside decks simply can't be beat. There is not a better location on Kings Beach. Tons of restaurants and shops within a short walk of the apartment and you can be on the beach in less than 5 minutes. Also, the available surfboards/boogie boards and beach towels were a great addition. Will definitely stay here again when I make it back to Australia!

Owner's Response: Thanks Lee, very happy you and your friends enjoyed the apartment so much - you're right, those views are hard to capture. My hubby is pleased his surf and boogie boards are getting good use, no point in having them just lie around! We'd love to welcome you back anytime, thanks for being great guests. Melissa

More than one room with a view

  • 4 of 5

The property is ideally located within Kings Beach, just a very short stroll down the hill and you are on the beach. The advantage of the property being on the hill is the fantastic views it offers across the bay.

Kings Beach is an outstanding resort, having visited several of the other local resorts during our stay Kings Beach was by far the best with several shops and cafés. A breakfast at Coffee Cat is highly recommended. The local town of Coloundra is within easy walking distance, the best route being along the sea front. Among many small shops there are also two supermarkets. The coastal path in both directions is amazing, you to walk miles along the coast line, with a constant supply of BBQ/picnic areas, children’s play grounds and even fitness area if you fancy a work out. The beach is exceptionally clean and well managed and monitored by lifeguards. The waves are exhilarating,however, if you want to escape the waves there is an outstanding salt water swimming pool which will be enjoyed by both the enthusiastic swimmer or children paddling.

The apartment is very spacious, has an excellent floor plan and is furnished in a contemporary way with an artistic theme. Both floors have a large expanse of glass giving the property plenty of natural light and stunning views, especially from the master bedroom. Every morning the curtains were drawn wide open to enjoy the amazing sunrises and you are close enough to have sound of crashing waves, the views and sounds of dreams from your bedroom. If you are really keen you could enjoy the sunrise from the spa.

Melissa’s communication from initial inquiry, through booking and throughout your stay was faultless. She always fast to reply, offers advice and keeps you up to date with anything she feels may affect your stay, it has been a pleasure.

Our stay at Kings beach was to celebrate both a 50th birthday and 25th wedding anniversary so I was looking for something special, I am so pleased I found 21 Salt on Kings, it was certainly very special compared to the many other apartments in the area.

Amazing views!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family recently stayed here for just over a month, it was absolutely perfect. Excellent location, extremely clean, excellent internet through out the apartment, very spacious layout and its within walking distance to everything (if you don't mind a few hills). We had a great time and would definitely come back again. They recently put up window treatments in all the bedrooms, but we loved having all the windows and curtains open to allow the light to shine in, but one can enjoy additional privacy with the new window treatments. we highly recommend this penthouse.

Owner's Response: Klemens & Rebekah, it was a pleasure working with you from the start of the booking process & throughout your visit. I thank you for your patience while we 'adjusted' the window treatments. Am so glad you enjoyed your month long stay and we'd love to welcome you back again, delightful & courteous guests. Enjoy the rest of your travels! Melissa

Penthouse Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I was specifically looking for some accommodation that had a wow factor that offered a comfortable homey feel at an affordable rate. I got my wish list ticked off here and more with Melissa's help.

This stunning penthouse is perfectly located just a moments walk to the beach in a lovely quiet part of town. On entering the apartment you will immediately feel like home as the presentation of the place is gorgeous with unique paintings and ornaments dotted around this modern well kept apartment.

A wonderfully large kitchen area to enjoy company whilst you prep food, cook or simply top up your glass, plus a lovely laid out lounge dining and balcony area on the first floor.

Prepare yourself for upstairs as it is divine and the couple that calls 'shotgun' will win hands down. An incredible amount of space to enjoy and a view to match with all the essentials for a wonderfully relaxing weekend.

My experience arranging the accommodation with Melissa was so easy and and effortless, in fact a total pleasure, the only downside was that I couldn't get to enjoy a glass of bubbles on her amazing balcony with her.

Owner's Response: Thanks Kez, am so glad you enjoyed your stay and we'll definitely make a plan to get together for those bubbles on the balcony next time I'm back home! Thanks for the private feedback on how to make things even better for future guests, always greatly appreciated. Cheers, Mel
