Guestbook comments from the owner

First time we visited sunshine coast, we fell in love with the view of "Absolute heaven bed and breakfast". We stayed there 3 nights at the Island view suite. I can't describe the view in words----let me try --it is absolute heaven!! We drove around the area and to us this place has the best scenery. But the beauty is in the eye of beholder. It is conveniently located near grocery and shops. When we were planning to visit Sunshine coast we tried to book few other places.This time we also drove by to check their locations. We found out some of them are situated very high from the the beach and their driveways are also very steep.For us we have some back and leg pain, so absolute heaven was perfect for us.Our host Doug and Doreen made our stay very comfortable. The suite is equipped with a full kitchen and is spic and span. We got all the comfort of staying at a hotel but in a home setting. My 16 year old was happy because he got the full gym to exercise in. Also, they have a library of books and movies. They also booked us a boat tour with Mermaid Tour's and the tour was excellent. We enjoyed our whole trip.

Fantastic view, lovely comfortable suite, central location for adventures

  • 4 of 5

Loved our stay. Easy check in and check out. I would have to say that watching the sunset while having a glass of wine in the hot tub was a great end to a day . The carriage house had everything we needed it was so much better than staying at a hotel. We would definitely recommend this property and hope to return in the future.

Everything you need & more

  • 5 of 5

This property was one of the best places we have ever stayed. The hosts are very friendly and welcoming. When we arrived, they took us on a short tour of all the great features of the property. The location is great and is equipped with a buoy out front for a large boat - we have a grady white. The suite has a breath-taking view and is perfect for four adults. The kitchen and bathroom are fully equipped with everything you need - even a absolute heaven bottle of wine! They supplied plenty of towels for the beach, shower and hot tub. The grassy area down by the beach is great for relaxing and enjoy the scenery. It also includes a custom fire pit fully equipped with fire wood and fire water - we loved making s’mores down there. Its a quiet, relaxing spot with everything you need and more. Well be back very soon! Thank you!

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great stay at Absolute Heaven! The suite was clean and spacious with an amazing view! We brought our toddler who had the best time playing on the beach! He loved combing the rocks for crabs and seaweed. The private sandy beach plot was also just perfect for him! There were many thoughtful touches at Absolute Heaven- beach toys already on the beach to use, a bottle of wine and snacks on arrival, as well as umbrella's in our suite. My son also enjoyed the games and books in the common room! It was great we didn't have to haul all of those things with us and there was lots to keep him entertained!

We only wish the weather had been more co-operative so we could have enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit!

Relaxing Oceanfront getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at Absolute Heaven Suites. Doug and Doreen were excellent hosts and more than happy to help point us to nearby activities, attractions, and food. The suite is comfortable, well equipped, clean, and private. The hot tub on the ocean is amazing and the view from the suite is great. Wifi was a bit slow but if you're wanting to unplug while on vacation that's fine.
