Having only opened in August 2016, our “Guests as Guinea pigs” special is moving fast. If you’re keen to share our beach ‘glamping’ experience, you will need to book well-in advance. TWe are solidly booked up until 11 of December (however the Christmas to New Years week is already taken.
Combining unique luxury tented accommodation with wonderful food “Starry Nights Luxury Camping” is our beautiful bed and breakfast beach retreat on the Sunshine Coast!
Bell Tents are a fabulous way to camp, with their natural cotton canvas you will experience camping in a way you have never before. The breathable and completely waterproof “New technology” canvas provides you with a warm and natural feeling.
We provide all of our guests with the ultimate glamping experience with all linen and towels provided, as well we supply a camp kitchen, gazebo and BBQ. We also give our guests the option self catering or as most guests prefer we can cater for you. We can provide a combination of organic and local seasonal produce for breakfast, lunch and dinner packs that are prepared to require minimal cooking for you.
It’s hard to illustrate the expansive feeling which comes as you walk into a Starry nights 6m Grand Emperor bell tent. Views in every direction showcase the tent’s beach setting. If the tent walls are down, and it’s winter, a sense of cozy intimacy pervades, as the light from the lantern flame flickers on the canvas ceiling.
Gone is the clutter of everyday life. Each 28m2 bell tent is decorated with an artisan’s touch. At night the tent is bathed in warm fairy lights from the rustic wooden chandelier; and the woolen throw blankets homely, as you sample the complimentary gourmet welcome pack left in your fridge.
Imagine waking up in a boutique room the gentle rolling surf....and opening up the tent to experience the outdoor air. You can relax all day, and wake up to a cafe quality cooked breakfast. Visit the sleepy tourist towns with restaurants and our other tourist attractions for the kids. You can then relax in a proper pillow top inner spring bed for the best night’s sleep you've ever had...isn't this the way camping should be… it's camping with 'Starry Nights”.

Why Bell Tents? And why the 6-meter permanent Grand Emperor bell tents?
Starry nights uses the newly released 6 meter permanent Grand Emperor bell tents. With mesh-screened windows, doors, vents as well as a zipped-in mesh wall will allow you to roll-up all walls, but with the mesh-wall zipped in place to keep the air flowing, they are prefect for Australian conditions and provide the perfect shelter for glamping. They’re a joy to sleep in, keeping you cool in the heat and warm in colder conditions, and being 3.5m tall with over 28sqm of space inside, they are cavernous inside.
Each tent accommodates 6 people. We have 3 tents and so can accommodate a group of 18 people. (Larger groups can be accommodated with more advanced booking). Each tent has 1 king bed and depending on numbers will can add up to 4 single beds to this configuration.
Made from water-proof, super heavy duty 450 g/m² “new technology” canvas. There are plenty of Bell tents on the market which have been PU-coated in order to be rendered waterproof. However, that plastic layer – as you can call it – has an adverse effect on the natural look and feel of the tents and causes condensation to form on the inside. However our 6 meter permanent Grand Emperor bell tents have been made to be waterproof without the need of an additional coating, leaving their ability to “breathe” intact. So not only are they completely waterproof, but the cotton in our Grand Emperor Bell tents breathes and regulates humidity they also look and feel natural and ventilate properly, so you do not have to worry about moisture accumulating in the tent.
A highlight of any stay...
The owners, Shane and Nicole love good wholesome food. Nicole who is a nutritional and integrative doctor on the Sunshine Coast has even published a cook book. All of Nicole’s recipes are organic; and gluten and dairy free with no or very little sugar. So Starry Nights follows the same food philosophy with all of our food.
Upon arrival enjoy complementary organic pancakes made from coconut flour (gluten free) with jam and cream and 2 bottles of apple or pear cider. For afternoon tea enjoy on your second day there are refreshing organic lemon tarts (no sugar and gluten free).

Each tent can accommodate up to 6 people with 1 king bed and 2 single beds under it and then another single bed with a trundle bed under it (totaling 5 beds in each tent).
It is up to you as to how many people you allocate to each tent but the maximum is 6 people per tent. So you may want 1 or more tents depending on the size of your group. For each tent prices are generally $255/night based on 2 people on Friday and Saturday nights or school holidays or $235 all other nights. Extra people (extra people / other than the std 2 per tent) are charged at $40/person/night. Please note that these prices supersede any Stayz computer generated prices.
For example on the weekend for 2 nights for 17 people then 3 tents will be required. This would cost 3 tents x $255/night (includes 6 people) + extra 11 people x $40/night = $1205/night for 17 people with 3 tents.
