About Debra

I'm a local resident residing in the area for the past 20years. Formally from the Sunshine Coast area in South Africa, my family has loved growing up on Australia's beautiful Sunshine Coast which arguably boasts the best weather in the country!

Debra purchased this house in 2012

Why Debra chose Maroochydore

River Paws on Maroochy is the ideal property for friends or family groups to getaway together in an ideal central holiday location opposite the river, with plenty of room for a large group.

What makes this house unique

This huge house provides plenty of room for a group getaway.

Having a boat-ramp within sight, is perfect for those who love the water to play on their jetski, boat or kayaks. A large River Cruise Boat is moored within walking distance and small watercraft hire can be found a few blocks further along.

Sporting groups will not find a better accommodation location having the Maroochy Multi-Sports fields backing onto the property with no roads to cross to enter.

Plenty of restaurants and cafes are located within a short drive or walk.

Plenty of off-street parking is available alongside the property for boat trailers.

Great property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean and well furnished and had all the facilities we needed for our family group of three generations aged between 4 and 78.The upstairs deck was fantastic for entertaining and the two separate living areas were great. The property is situated in a lovely area near the river and beaches, shops etc.

Great Location and House

  • 5 of 5

It really was an ideal location for a group gathering, the location is a nice drive from Brisbane city and the area is lovely. Close to several things and the Sunday Markets is a short 4 minute walk from the property.

The owners were quick to respond and very easy to deal with. Despite making a mistake on my end, they were very understanding with the situation and we were still able to stay in the property. The property was clean and well maintained, no issues with the facilities.

Definitely would recommend this property for big groups looking for a weekend getaway on the Sunshine Coast.

Great Loction...Needs TLC

  • 2 of 5

Its a great house with lots of beds, tonnes of space in an awesome location. However when we arrived to find that no basics such as hand towels,soaps, basic condiments or even toilet paper (things you would expect to be included) it took away from our experience. Finger prints all along the walls, rubbish from previous guests and the upstairs kitchen has no oven or stove top, which resulted in the group to share the downstairs kitchen (electric, small and outdated).

Owner's Response: Glad you liked the house & location, Tom. As per details sent to you and all guests prior to arrival, the property is equipped with basic equipment for self-catering, but is not equipped with any consumables like soaps, condiments or a supply of toilet paper, other than 1 full roll per toilet, upon arrival. This is clearly stated in pre-arrival information, so I am not sure why you expected anything else, other than what was detailed. Guests are informed prior to arrival, that they need to bring their own linen and towels, so again, I'm not sure why you expected hand-towels to be in the property, when you were specifically informed that they are not. Apologies for the cleaner omitting to clean finger prints that you found on walls or remove rubbish that was obviously not in the bins, but elsewhere, as he removes all bin-rubbish, when he cleans the property before arrivals. Yes, the property, as per council regulations for all single dwellings, only has one kitchen, as per website photos, so I'm not sure why you were expecting to find a stove upstairs. The upstairs living area has a wet-bar which caters for drinks & snacks to be served, not food preparation. As per website photos, the property kitchen & dining area is located downstairs.
