  • Description


    Hi everyone, my name is Arnaud (pronounced Arno) and I live on 5 acres in the Sunshine Coast hinterland with a great view to the coast which is 20 minutes away. It is very peaceful here with abundant bird life and a permaculture garden with raised garden beds and a fruit orchard. You will have your own bathroom downstairs and there is lovely spot to camp if you have your own vehicle. Totally private and secluded whilst being a few kilometres to Eudlo or Mooloolah station which is an hour and and 20 minutes from Brisbane . We are near Chenrezig Buddhist Institute and close to swimming spots like creeks, a dam and the beach of course.

    We are an international family being from Mauritius island and speaking French, creole and Japanese having lived there for many years. Mixed international diet but flexible to cook for vegetarians.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Eudlo train station is a few kilometres from here and is on the north coast line to Nambour so getting here is easy. Being into music and art I am aware of gigs around the place so can direct you to where it's happening.
    The beach is 20 minutes away by car and the beauty of Australia is that it's clean and not crowded with no plastic.
