A beautiful paradise getaway on the Sunshine Coast
Submitted: February 18, 2013
Stayed: August 2012
My wife, two sons and I stayed at this magnificent property last summer for 10 days with my brother, his wife and daughter. My parents joined us for this vacation and much to our delight were able to moor their 41-foot sailboat at the dock below at the base of the property. As a child I grew up sailing up and down the west coast, but now that we have families of our own we searched for a place that could accommodate us all so we could spend our days sailing, hiking, golfing or biking. The attention to detail in the place is incredible and one of my first thoughts upon arriving was why would someone rent out such an incredible home. I would live in fear of bad renters and the damage they could cause. Needless to say, we will be returning and I would highly recommend this place to anyone that is in search of the perfect vacation spot on the sunshine coast. I have wonderful memories of the open concept living room/dining room/gourmet kitchen where we shared some fantastic meals, good wine and great company. The house was immaculate and well maintained/appointed. They have a caretaker on the property that looks after the place. The couple who lived there were extremely helpful and they respected our privacy. In fact, I only saw them a few times over the course of our stay usually because we had asked them for something. Overall the house is very private with spectacular views of the bay. The layout was perfect as they have two separate sleeping areas, with a giant entertainment portion in the center (kitchen/dining room/living room), which was perfect for our two families and infant children. Doug and Debbie went out of there way make us feel welcome and to let us know about the home before we arrived and what to expect including suggestions about places to eat and explore in the immediate vicinity. They even allowed us to use their mountain bikes, kayaks and Boston Whaler. They exceeded our expectations and Doug was only a phone call away if we needed to ask a question. Thank you Doug and Debbie for sharing your home, we will be back soon.
