See what one of our travellers has to say about Marcoola!

As the sunlight shone into my room I awoke with a feeling of excitement and wonder. I had arrived the evening before on a flight from chilly Melbourne into the Sunshine Coast. As I walked across the tarmac the warm air filled my senses. I was eager to discover my new abode for the next 10 days.

On waking I ventured to the window and looked out onto the palm filled gardens and looked longingly at the small neat pool. I quickly dressed and made my way out into a small pathway with the promise of a nearby beach. I crossed the road and made my way onto the path that led towards the beach. The sun was shining and its warmth radiated into my back. As I trudged through deep sand I stopped in absolute awe at the site that lay before me. Sparkling blue water and white luscious waves bouncing onto the crisp white sand.

Oh I was in heaven! My heart was beating fast and as I puffed my way down the sand dunes onto the beach I felt overwhelmed with excitement and delight at the glorious view before me. Marcoola Beach in all its sun filled glory.

I knew with certainty that my holiday was going to be hugely satisfying and healing for me. Ten days later I reluctantly boarded my flight back to the cold weather awaiting me down south. I was suntanned, serene and happy from such a wonderful holiday at Marcoola Beach.

The beach is just a hop, skip and a jump away (a really great beach for whatever to you want to do - swim, walk, or just watch the waves) and it's nice area to stroll around and catch the afternoon breeze. The local people were super friendly too. Very comfortable house to stay in with all you need. Well looked after by the owners in terms of anything we needed.
