Sunshine Coast Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Amazing - views, oceanfront, luxury, sleeps 2 in Carriage House

Just footsteps (14 to be precise) lrom your own private deck to the waters edge on beautiful Welcome Beach. Nestled in Halfmoon Bay, Welcome Beach is one of the Sunshine Coasts hidden gems! Enjoy beach life and the very best that West Coast wildlife has to offer, without even leaving your sun lounger. Watch the cruise liners glide past at sunset on balmy Summer evenings and wake up to grey whales, sea otters and seals frolicking in the water in front of you in the mornings and eagles soaring overhead!

Kayak from your own deck to the myriad of secret coves, inlets, beaches and islands or just simply 'kick-back' and unwind ... relax, recoup, recharge. Priceless!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely, relaxing time in the beautiful Carriage House. We look forward to staying here again, maybe in the Summer!

Thanks so much.

First home away from "home"

  • 5 of 5

I recently had to move to the coast for a career opportunity. As a newly graduated student, with very few options available on the coast, I was given an affordable option and offered to live in the gorgeous carriage house, on Welcome Beach, for 2 months. Not having to worry about moving all of my belongings over right away was a huge stress reliever and gave me the opportunity to settle into my career and new surroundings. It also gave me the chance to look around and find a more permanent place to live. The carriage house is beautiful, with a stunning view of the ocean in the front, and forest like setting in the back. The owners of the property were extremely accommodating and friendly, in assuring my stay included everything I needed. They went above and beyond to help with my transition to life on the Coast. I would highly recommend the carriage suite to anyone looking to get away, to a quiet, peaceful and beautiful setting! I know I will be recommending it to my friends and family.
