About the property

Spacious 3 bedroom open plan luxury home with wide decks, gazebo and views

Galway House offers guests a luxury, spacious open plan home located in the prestigious "golden triangle" area of the Noosa Hinterland half way between Noosa's magnificent beaches, restaurants and shops and the historic township of Eumundi.

The house is beautifully appointed with elegant furnishings throughout. As you walk into the open plan living area with high ceilings and wide decks with views of the garden and valley you immediately begin to unwind and enjoy the peaceful quite surroundings and feel one with nature.

The house is set on 2 fully fenced tropical acres and is positioned on the crest of a ridge with rural views of Noosa and Mt Cooroy. The Queenslander-style pole home has wide decks wrapping 3 sides with an adjoining gazebo off the main deck. The north facing decks and gazebo take advantage of the scenic views and cool afternoon breezes. Relax in the gazebo, put your feet up in the hammock or chill out on one of the Balinese day beds on the front or back decks.

Enjoy the peace, space and tranquillity of the countryside yet only a short drive to Noosa's main beach and all the fabulous restaurants and shopping that Noosa has to offer and only 10 mins to Noosaville and the quieter pace of the picturesque Noosa River.

Galway House is a pet friendly property and fully fenced so you can relax knowing your pet is also having an enjoyable holiday by your side. They'll love exploring the garden then chilling out in the sun on the deck - a dogs heaven.

About Liz Cunneen

Currently living in Sydney but returning to Galway House as often as possible - which is never enough.

Liz Cunneen purchased this house in 1995

Why Liz Cunneen chose Doonan

Galway House is located in the picturesque hinterland area of Noosa on a ridge with valley views of Mt Cooroy and distant views of Noosa. The fully fenced 2 acre tropical garden is the perfect location for you and your furry friends to relax and enjoy the peaceful and quiet tranquility of the hinterland, but only a 10-15 minute drive to be amongst some of the best beaches, restaurants, cafes and shopping Australia has to offer. Great to enjoy all the best Noosa can offer but being able to come home to relax away form the hustle bustle of the tourist hub - Galway House offers the best of both worlds.

What makes this house unique

Sitting or laying back and taking in the views of the garden and property from the gazebo or on the wide decks from the day bed or the hammock is so relaxing. Enjoying the afternoon breezes or the winter sun with a good book, a glass of wine or a nanna nap - nothing better.

The spacious open plan kitchen/ dining/ living area - the perfect place for entertaining and cooking up a feast with your family and friends. High ceilings, ceiling fans and cedar sliding doors opening onto the wide decks gives a feeling of incredible light and openness.

In winter cuddle up and enjoy a romantic time in front of the combustion wood heater.

And not to forget the amazing 2 fully fenced tropical acres for the furry members of the family - they will love sniffing and exploring and then chilling out in the sun on the deck.

Peaceful, comfortable and tons of room

  • 5 of 5

Us and our elderly fluffy dog loved Galway House. From the 'wows' on opening the front door to the serene afternoons lounging on daybeds on the veranda in the sun, to enjoying holiday feasts at that amazing table - we all slept like logs and came away after 5 days feeling so relaxed. We had to contact Liz once, and she was so friendly and couldn't be more helpful. What a great set-up, everything we could possibly need.

Owner's Response: Hi Janet and Trevor So pleased you enjoyed your stay and loved the house. It is a beautiful area and we do endeavour to make the house as comfortable and relaxing as possible for our guests. I must admit, lazy afternoons on the deck in the sun is bliss. Thanks again for staying with us.

Quiet, relaxing pet-friendly accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th time staying at Galway. We love it because it is close to Eumundi markets and Noosa beaches etc. but removed from the crowds. There is a large fenced property for the dog, lovely verandas with daybeds to snooze on and lots of trees to provide cool breezes. The home is very well equipped with everything you need to cook and relax. It feels like home!

A heavenly hideaway and we could take our dogs!

  • 5 of 5

We could not recommend Galway House enough. It was such a relaxing holiday for my partner and I (and our two dogs). We all had a great time with loads of space to enjoy throughout the house and the backyard was a dog's heaven. The serenity and the deck was just magical and we are already planning our next visit. Thank you!!

Family weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous family weekend at Galway House. Unfortunately it rained all weekend but there was plenty of space for us all to relax and we didn't feel on top of each other. Great open plan living, lovely verandah and quiet. Games came in handy for the children. Great house and would highly recommend - especially as we could take our dog

Quiet retreat

  • 5 of 5

20 mins from everywhere we wanted to go - Noosa, beaches and dog beaches, Coles. Comfortable accommodation with fresh linen and high standard of cleanliness throughout. All amenities provided that we needed and the dog loved the space. Responsive owner who made sure everything was taken care of. Great stay - thank you!

Tropical tranquil hinterland

Doonan is only 10 kms and 10 minutes drive from the Noosa River and Noosaville but seems more like a million miles away when relaxing away from the people and traffic and being with nature.

Close to the renowned Eumundi Market where you will find some amazing arts and crafts and organic food. Visit the historic towns of Cooroy and Pomona. Stroll around the beautiful botanic gardens at Lake MacDonald or feeling a little more adventurous - climb Mount Timberwah - a 1 km mild walk and climb to appreciate the breathtaking views of Noosa. Feeling lazy but want the views - drive less than 5 minutes from the house up to Mt Panorama with 360 views of the coast and hinterland.
