Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay at Diane's beautiful apartment, everything was as described, but better. The views are really fantastic and we too spotted a couple of whales from the ocean side of the apartment. There is everything you need and more in the kitchen, also good quality appliances in the kitchen and laundry. We loved waking up in bed to such a beautiful view and the bed was comfy and big! Diane was great at keeping in touch and even rang us to explain the whereabouts of the heaters, as the Sunshine Coast was experiencing a 30 year cold snap while we were there. We loved to just step outside the door and being right at the beach or river whichever we preferred, and strolling around Point Cartwright is so nice. We definitely hope to be back! Thank you for everything Diane, we really enjoyed staying at your place.

Perfect property for a family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 7 nights in Sept, 2016. We found this property to be exactly what we needed. Right from check-in, everything was a breeze. The property is beautiful, the views are absolutely stunning and the location is just perfect. We loved not being right downtown but still only having a drive of under 10 minutes to get there. Condo was extremely clean and seemed to be well maintained. Had quick access to many great restaurants and grocery stores. The condo is extremely well stocked with anything you could ever want or need. Diane was more than helpful before we arrived in letting us know her favourite markets and where to buy anything that we could desire while in Mooloolaba and upon arrival, she's done a very good job at presenting everything in the area in several binders. Would definitely recommend this unit to anyone looking to stay in the area!

This is truly a special place, not just a holiday rental. The apartment is obviously a well loved and exceptionally well appointed family home away from home that must be full of wonderful memories. Thank you for allowing us to share it.

Perfect Location, fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

After staying at your lovely apartment last year, we were really looking forward to staying again, as we knew how nice it is.

I really love this spot and can't get enough of the lovely views, there are not many places where you can see the sunrise in the morning and then watch the sunset in the evening!

It is an amazing location and our family enjoyed coming over for a visit. Kitchen is so well equipped, the bed is big and comfy, all the appliances in kitchen and laundry and lounge are excellent.The layout is great and very spacious.

Thank you again Diane for sharing your place with us, we really hope that we will be able to stay again next year.

Wow! What a view!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a week in this lovely accommodation and never got over the gorgeous views this property offers from each room. Point Cartwright offers wonderful beach and river frontages with beautiful easy walking passages and boardwalks. The property is private, spacious and secure and very comfortable. We had 5 adults sharing this accommodation and we never felt that we were cramped for space or privacy. The unit itself is very nicely decorated with comfortable lounges and beds. The kitchen has all you need and more with modern appliances in good working order. Diane was always easy to communicate with and very prompt in her replies. Arrangements for key pick up were smooth and uncomplicated. If we holiday at the Sunshine coast again we would arrange to stay here again, it would be hard to find any better accommodation or position in our opinion!

Absolute HEAVEN !!! A MUST stay !!!

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of five (three first time visitors from the USA and 2 Australians). Diane was a delight to work with, promptly responding to all our inquiries. When we arrived, the property manager was exactly where she said she would be, at the time she said she would be there. She explained what we needed to know about the apartment and pointed out a helpful binder of instructions , local restaurant and shopping info. The kitchen had everything needed to prepare and serve meals with the bonus of a GORGEOUS view. There are PLENTY of dishes, pots & pans, cups, mugs, utensils, serving bowls, platters, silverware. The dishwasher works great. The washer and dryer are very convenient. The beds are comfy; the master and guest room have amazing views. Grandma (a small woman) stayed in the small room but it is best suited for a child or teenager. We had the pleasure of watching whales from the balcony nearly every morning. The lanais are great for morning coffee, meals, playing games or just relaxing and watching the sunset. There are several sets of steps along the harbor for easy access into the water. The nearby nature trail is a great place to walk/jog with lots of photos spots and great picnic areas. We visited the Australia Zoo, Underwater World, the Noosa Everglades (HIGHLY recommended), Eumundi street markets, several beaches and surf clubs. I could go on and on about how wonderful this place is. Let me summarize by saying that I can't imagine any reason anyone would regret staying at this property. I cried the day I had to leave. I pray that I will be able to return one day. Thank you, Diane, for the opportunity to experience the Sunshine Coast in luxury!

This was such a perfect place to stay - very comfortable with heavenly views and so close to everything without being right in the craziness of the city. We were treated to whale watching from the balcony as well as power boat racing. We can't wait to come back and will be recommending this place to any NZ friends that are travelling over!
