  • Description


    Hello, we are a family of three. Josh (30), Anna (31) and Sadie (20 months old). Josh is a carpenter, and I am a teacher currently working part-time and studying my masters. We enjoy a relatively active lifestyle and we're all pretty relaxed. We are slowly renovating a double storey house on two acres.

    The house has a beautiful outlook onto the garden with a lovely deck, kookaburras and butcher birds often join us for a chat. Our home has 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, we have two spare bedrooms downstairs and a bathroom/rumpus area. The neighbourhood is very friendly and peaceful.

    We're a 15 minute drive to the airport and beaches. Local coffee shops, markets, groceries are within a 10 minute drive.

    We are excited to share our knowledge and experiences of the Sunshine Coast. We also value mealtimes and getting to know new faces. Josh has extensive construction knowledge and I'm more than happy to talk about Education in Queensland.

    We have two spare bedrooms downstairs, bathroom and rumpus area. This space has just been renovated/built.

    We are happy to provide meals. Breakfast and lunch will generally be 'help yourself' and you'll be a part of our family dinner. We generally like to eat healthy meals, we do not have dietary requirements however we can cater to these as best as we can. Although, if you'd like to cook you're more than welcome.

    We are also happy to assist with travel arrangements and some site seeing.
