About Sandy

We love travel, meeting people and sharing our beautiful piece of paradise with others who want to discover or rediscover Noosa.

We moved to Noosa permanently over 10 years ago. Every day we make the most of the river at our doorstep and the National park a short distance away by bush walking, kayaking and stand up paddling.

We also run a very unique tour business called Noosa Dreamboats where we take our customers on private cruises on the Noosa river in a stunning polished mahogany classic 1940's style speedboat.

I am also a contemporary artist. My original oil paintings and outdoor art are featured throughout the Loft and the property.

Why Sandy chose Noosaville

The house and its beautiful waterfront location are what sold us. It is a short level walk or bike ride to the beach, Hastings st, Gympie Terrace riverfront area, Quamby place restaurants. But when Noosa is crowded with travellers it is still quiet here and we love that. We can be in the hustle and bustle within minutes if we wish or enjoy the peace and serenity of our stunning riverfront vista overlooking an environmental island.

Our house, of which the Loft is a part (although separate and self contained) is also an award winning home by leading Australian architect John Mainwaring. When it was built it won the Robin Boyd award for Best Architect designed new house in Australia.

We feel very, very lucky to call this place home.

What makes this studio unique

The architecture, the location and its facilities are all unique.

Guests can enjoy taking a double or single kayak out from the beach for a paddle around Noosa Sound or to the river mouth sandbars or up Weyba creek to Lake Weyba.

The 18 metre sunny saltwater pool is perfect for doing laps or just cooling off after lazing on the sun lounges.

The jetty is our guests preferred location for having a coffee or breakfast in the morning or a chilled wine or beer in the afternoon. Or just a great place to chill and do nothing.

The Loft mezzanine bed is also a pretty cool sleeping area - safe and secure but also a little bit different to your usual queen size bed.

Convenient location, uncomfortable stay.

  • 3 of 5

This is an attached property. We had the feeling that we were always under the eye and ear of the hovering owners. The 'private' jetty is only a metre or so from the owners wall of windows.

The BBQ was rusted out, unusable and unsafe. There were no bicycles as advertised. An unreachable and jammed open window sent a cold wind across the bed. We were disappointed we could not relax into the beauty the surroundings had promised.

Cute, Quiet and Quaint

  • 5 of 5

This fantastic property is set in a prime location - right on the river and within walking distance to shops, cafes and Hastings Street, while still effortlessly managing to remain serene.

The Loft itself had everything we required and fell nothing short of expectations. The hosts are welcoming and wonderful, offering all the privacy you need while still being available to answer any questions or simply just to chat. We spent hours on the jetty, eating our meals there and watching the sun set over the river, and made good use of the kayaks while soaking up the sun.

The Loft definitely leaves an impression on you - we're just so sad that we had to leave it behind! Thank you once again Sandy and Michael for making our stay exceptional!

Loved our short stay here-perfect for myself and 10 y.o. son-used kayaks and fished from jetty. Peaceful and quiet but close to action if reqd. Hosts very welcoming. Thanks.

I had the best winter long-weekend holiday in Noosa staying at the Loft. Lovely studio space, conveniently located a nice walk to Noosa Heads beach & National Park, Noosaville restaurant & river and Noosa Sound shops & organic market.

Paddling the kayak (provided) in the late afternoon was wonderful. Thanks Sandy & Michael :)

Gorgeous Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this lovely apartment in October last year - the late review is only due to the demands of daily life taking attention on my return from this bliss filled time in Noosa. The Loft is very well appointed with modern fittings, in a quiet street mid way between Noosaville and the main township - a manageable walk in either direction. As a woman travelling alone, I felt snug and safe in the Loft which sits behind the owners' family modern and creative home. I loved having use of the family kayaks to explore the waterways from the inlet shore on which the house sits - spotting pelicans, admiring the holiday home architecture in the inlets and paddling around for a morning coffee at one of the cafes on the river - or sitting on the home's jetty with my holiday read and taking in the peaceful view.

The bed which is suspended securely from the ceiling on sturdy beams and accessed via a ladder up the wall, is like a nest - as someone coming from an earthquake prone city and who is a bit nervous with heights, I took a few moments to settle in and relax but soon relished this comfortable space and woke up rested each morning. I would suspect this set up would be best for more nimble, lithe and flexible individuals or couples, who do not need to get up frequently in the night and can comfortably handle the ladder . This is in no way a gripe as I loved the experience and I did not have to negotiate it with another person.

I would highly recommend the Loft to others like myself and am holding fast to my hope that I can return there in the not too distant future.

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at 'The Loft' it has everything you need for a short stay. We flew in, enjoyed a 4 day and 3 night stay - everything was at our fingertips. Morning swims in the lap pool were a great way to kick of the day. There are so many cafes, beaches, markets and things to do nearby.
