About the property

This cute cottage has all you could possibly want for a holiday house.

Fully self contained with 3 bedrooms(2 queen size beds and a bunk with a double on the bottom and a single on the top). Bath towels and bed linen included.

There is a spacious back deck for afternoon drinks.

The high set cottage has air conditioning but you'll rarely need it with the flow through sea breeze it gets most days.

The pet friendly cottage is fully fenced so bring the dog.(Dogs are allowed on the deck but not in the house please.)

There is undercover lock up parking and a parking bay for a boat.

There are 3 boat ramps within 7 min drive, the closest being 3 min. drive away.

The Shack is in a residential area. Parties and large gatherings are not allowed.

Things to do

There are some bicycles provided so you can ride to the beach, along the river, to the shops, or just to explore the area.

If you like shopping Sunshine Plaza(the biggest shopping centre on the coast.) is a 10 min walk away.

For night life Ocean St is 15 min walk. It has great restaurants and bars you can dance the night away in.

The usual attractions Australia Zoo, Underwater world and Aussie world are a short drive away.

There are great beaches from Maroochydore south all the way to Caloundra. Or North from Maroochydore all the way to Noosa. Take a picnic lunch and explore the beaches, climb Mt Coolum or head to the hinterland and visit the villages of Montville, Maleny and Mappleton. There are many waterfalls in the hinterland so take your bathing suits.

The Castle at Bli Bli is worth a look as well.

There is so much to do in and around the Sunshine Coast within 50km of Maroochydore.

This is just a small introduction. Now it's up to you to make a booking and spend some time here to explore this beautiful part of Australia.

Great location and feel about the place. Our dog loved the large yard!

  • 4 of 5

House was good and comfortable. Rooms were large with cosy beds. Kitchen was compact but had everything we needed. Loved the back deck and spent most of our time out there with the dog enjoying the fresh air and sunshine. Great size fenced in yard for our border collie, she could run and catch the frizzbie without a problem. Close walking distance for the river, park, beach and all amenities. Dog friendly beach a drive

Away. Thanks for letting us stay

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Shack. Max, our dog, loved the outdoor decking and so did we. The house is super clean with amazing attention to detail. We found the location to be convenient and highly recommend this house. Thanks for an enjoyable stay.

Good value for money

  • 5 of 5

Really good yard for our kelpie & border collie- secure fences. Awesome deck, well appointed kitchen, heaps of room under the house, and a cooling breeze throughout our stay. Walking distance to all shops, handy for the keen fisherman with boat ramp nearby. Good payment options as well

Winter escape

  • 4 of 5

My Family and I and our dog just stayed at the shack this weekend and we had a great time. The beds were very comfortable and the property was very clean and functional and had a huge backyard, front and back to kick a ball in. It's very close to Sunshine plaza and the river. Would definately come back and recommend to others!
