    We are an upbeat retired couple who live on a beautiful property near Coolum beach. We happily welcome visitors from all over the world to stay with us in our family home. We are looking to share stories about travel adventures with travellers who can in exchange, assist us with house and garden renovations to help keep our property beautiful

    Wake up to the peace and quiet, enjoy breakfast whilst listening to the birds and watching the kangaroos grazing. Experience true tranquility on our property encased with semi-tropical rainforest overlooking a large dam which is home to many different Australian water birds.

    Our property is just a 5 minute drive to the magnificent Coolum beach where you can take in the stunning coastal views. Walk along the boardwalk and watch the whales breaching in front of you during their migration times, climb Mount Coolum for an even more stunning costal views, or just sit on the beach and watch the sunset. Their are also lots of rainforest and coastal walks close by, including the famous Noosa National Park.
