Guest Reviews

"We highly recommend Nora's Place. Jess and Joey and Nora are such a beautiful family and they made us feel comfortable right away. Buderim is a lovely little community. The shops (and most importantly coffee shops) are within walking distance from the house. They live in an urban food street which is a community initiative of growing fruit and veggies on the council land outside homes. We were really impressed with the community spirit. Nora's place is a lovely spacious flat nestled in greenery at the back of Jess and Joey's house. We felt like we had privacy, but having the accommodation close by meant that we could spend some time getting to know our lovely hosts. The flat was beautifully appointed with modern appliances and a fully functional kitchen. The separate bedroom has a really comfortable queen size bed and was spacious enough to set up a portacot for our baby. Jess and Joey's love of organic and ethical products with evident in the beautiful range of soaps, shampoos and even the milk in the fridge! Nora's Place is a great location...10min to the beach, Sunshine Plaza, main strip of shops at Maroochydore. It's close to the Eumundi markets (on every Wed and Sat), the Glass House Mountains (Montville is a lovely little mountain town with lots of interesting shops) and only 30min from Noosa (farmers markets are on Sunday). We had a really relaxing week on our first family holiday with our 6 month old. We would love to come back again for another holiday soon! " - Laura

"The moment we arrived at Jess's home we fell in love with beautiful Buderim! Jess & her lovely family welcomed us and quickly established an easy rapport. The self contained villa is exactly as the photos depict - modern, stylish, spotlessly clean, comfortable, extremely well maintained and thoughtfully stocked with basic supplies and a good choice of books and magazines. There are gorgeous tropical garden views from every window, complimented by the peaceful clucking of 3 chickens happily free ranging. The location is within an easy walk to shops and restaurants and a short drive to the wonderful local beaches. We thoroughly enjoyed staying at "Nora's Place" and would definitely book again. Thanks Jess!"- Maria

"Thank you so much Joey, Jess and Nora for a wonderful stay. You have done a wonderful job in what we understand a very short time. We could not have had better facilities. Well stocked kitchen, bathroom, beautiful toiletries and ample towels. The bedroom plenty of cupboard space and a bed to die for. We feel as if we have become part of your family in the three weeks been have been here. Nice knowing you are there but never needed anything as it was all fitted out. We would definitely recommend "Nora's Place" to any friends or family visiting this part of Australia. Well done and thank you so much again". - Keith and Hilary Lancaster (U.K)

"Jess, Joey and Little Nora (& Ollie) Thank you so much for our wonderful visit. My daughter and I had a lovely time & really enjoyed the peaceful surroundings, as well as the lovely unit, including the special "touches" like artisan soap, lovely bed, yoga mat & nice magazines. As I said it was "a soft place to land" Warm Regards - Heather and Charlotte

We had a wonderful time at Nora's place and were delighted with a secure, peaceful and friendly environment. We enjoyed walks into Buderim and visiting surrounding areas. Everything was great but patchy internet and our phones struggled with reception.

Owner's Response: We are pleased that as of last week we now have NBN which has made a HUGE difference to the internet connection and speed! Telstra phones are also better than most other carriers.

My two-year old son and I had the most wonderful time at Nora's Place. The unit was modern, clean and tidy, and had lots of small touches that made our stay super comfortable. The location was ideal - we never had to drive more than 10-15 minutes to find plenty of things to do. I really appreciated that my son was able to share some of Nora's space and toys - this really helped particularly on the rainy day. Would recommend Nora's Place!
