A great place to stay.

4 of 5
This was a great place to stay and we thoroughly enjoyed it, the views of the Sunshine Coast both day and night are superb. Coast view has everything you need including a lovely wood fired heater for the colder months and plenty of firewood, collecting kindling gives you a bit of exercise. Being able to have a spa bath while enjoying the view is a plus and its place in an open plan living area would appeal to romantically inclined couples.It is very quiet but close enough to all the local attractions and there are restaurants and cafes a plenty in nearby Maleny and Kenilworth.The caretaker visited often enough to see if we needed anything but was not obtrusive. There are basic provisions including milk,biscuits and chocolate. There are plenty of cooking options including an electric BBQ on the deck.The only downside and a small one is the driveway is very narrow if you have a large car, we have an SUV and had no trouble.
