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.

Great place to stay

5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at Zeby's Beach Break. We thought the house was perfect for us and our small dog. We really liked the location and the neighbourhood, due to its proximity to the beach and the lovely surroundings. We would love to stay again. Mark & Jodie.

Spotless home. The outdoor area is small but it was fine for our 2 medium dogs plus one little one.

5 of 5
Fresh and modern. Great fencing for pets. Loved the walkway to the beach. It was lovely and quiet at night in spite of being very close to neighbors. Lovely park with BBQ just behind the street. Try Curlys for a pet friendly spot for breakfast or lunch! Within walking distance and pet friendly.
