Welcome! Our bright, light and cool self-contained Guest Suite is central to the Sunny Coast. From sunny golden beaches to a lush tropical hinterland with quaint villages, bush walks, waterfalls, Australia Zoo, Aussie World & more we are close to it all! Buses & trains close by. Art House cinema, cafes & organic markets.
Bedrooms- studio style & separate bedroom

The space
Our private entry and easy-clean family Guest Suite is half of our family home securely separated by deadlocked doors. It can accommodate 3 adults comfortably or a family of 5 with queen bed in the studio style main space and 3 single foam mattresses for children which can be placed in the separate bedroom or there is room for one in the studio bedroom also. For a family of 3 or 3 guests, a king single bed may be available in the separate bedroom also. Bedrooms contain a built in wardrobe and a wardrobe on wheels and toys and books for children can be available. 5 guests in total with up to 2 dogs are allowed (no cats sorry).
We have a third room upon request before booking only that may be able to be used for storage. The main kitchen may be requested too but you need to do so prior to booking. Sometimes it isn’t available due to extended family staying with me. * Extra fees apply for extra rooms.

You can park directly on the driveway outside a double glass sliding door entry. You also have direct access to a private fully fenced yard off the driveway or through the laundry, perfect for families with dogs. The large leafy park directly off your driveway includes a beautiful natural creek and patch of rainforest, playground with flying fox, swings, slides, cricket pitch, BBQ, and lots of bird life. There are many leafy walks to take your pooch(es) on, including walking into town.

Our colourful Wiggles kitchenette has a bench top oven, bench top hotplate, microwave, toaster, kettle and fridge along with all the basic utensils, cooking equipment and crockery plus plastic wear for children.

**NOTE: the sink is in the laundry with drying rack above it, please see guest suite plan. For drinking and cooking water there is a glass tapped urn on the bench top which is filled with fresh reverse osmosis water which can be topped up during your stay (please request).

My cleaning fee matches the cleanliness of the suite. It will either be fully spring cleaned or bond cleaned prior to your arrival. The suite is very easy to clean (especially the floor) for longer term guests and guests with dogs.

Nambour has 2 large and 2 smaller supermarkets, an Art House cinema, beautiful cafes and restaurants (including organic, vegan and gluten free friendly) and facilities you would need for a happy stay. The Hinterland Village of Mapleton is only 10 minutes up the hill with it's gorgeous water-fall walk and the quaint english village of Montville (renowned for it's locally grown coffee) and Maleny (renowned for fresh local dairy produce and musical/artistic culture) are a little further on.

Our location makes it ideal for temporary teaching staff and longer term Hospital staff and visitors being only a 5 minute drive to Nambour General Hospital and 5 minute walk through the beautiful park to primary and high schools, 10 minute walk to TAFE. 5 minute walk for buses to the hospital, TAFE, Nambour, train stations and Maroochydore.

I accommodate many families moving here and offer a PO Box for any mail and deliveries you need as well as some storage room upon request at a small rate. I run a busy family household and work and I’m happy to answer all your questions as best I can and as quickly as I can.

Guest access
See the picture of the guest suite plan. It is fully private with its own glass sliding door entry off the driveway... all level. The lock box is located at the door entry. The yard for pets is accessible off the driveway and through the laundry.

Other things to note
The basics for tea and coffee making and some treats are supplied initially for new guests.
All your doors have internal locks for your safety and privacy.
We have a very friendly 4 year old Bull Arab Cross who is in his own yard. Your dog(s) have a separate yard and if house trained, are allowed inside if nails are clipped. All floors are easy clean.
Please ensure you clean up in the yard after your pet. Rubbish bags can be placed in the red wheelie bin just over the fence. This will be collected every Tuesday after 4pm for emptying.
Details of a Post Office Box can be provided if you need delivery of mail whilst staying here. It’s best not to address mail to the house address as larger items or documents sometimes don’t make it safely into the letterbox.

I am a very family orientated person who loves the simple things in life…tasty vegan/vegetarian food, great company, uplifting music and a great movie. I am a Teacher and Carer with 3 sons at home and one very lovable young dog who has a separate yard to the guest suite yard. I know it can be difficult finding accommodation with dogs, so we have an easy clean space with small yard (and large park next door) for family dogs. I always like flexibility as a guest with kids and dog in tow, so to ease the time for check ins and check outs I have installed a lock box and made check outs 11am.

During your stay
The Guest Suite is half of our family home and due to the dividing walls, doors and house design, it is very private and has separate entries and separate yards on different streets. You should not hear our family or us hear you. In saying that I am here, or on the phone to help you with all your needs and we may bump into each other in the shared laundry!
Due to the main house having deadlocked dividing doors, guests won’t be able to access myself in our home unless we bump into each other in the laundry, so please text or call me if assistance is needed.
