SUNRISE BEACH - aptly named as the East facing balcony blesses our visitors with glorious sunrises from the expansive balcony that faces the ocean. It is a three minute walk to the white sands. You can walk for hours in one direction on the sand if you want to. In the other direction ten minutes will bring you out at Sunshine Beach where you can stop and have a coffee - or you can go a few minutes further along the beach and climb up the steep track and walk through the National Park.
This is a full sized house with an open plan living/dining/kitchen and three bedrooms. Two rooms have reverse cycle air conditioners. Most rooms have overhead fans. The twin and fourposter King rooms are double sized and super spacious.
The Master bedroom has an ensuite and walk in robe. All the beds are very comfortable with high quality down duvets and a choice of comfy pillows.
We think that your stay should be as fuss free as possible...no one wants to lug their sheets and towels with them...so we provide quality linen and towels as part of the fee you are quoted. There are extras in the cupboard too. We are also generous with the amenities in the pantry for your use while you are here - who wants to have to buy things like salt and pepper for their stay?
The house is a rather eclectic - no 'vanilla' here - But It is a house to live in and enjoy, not the kind of home you are afraid to touch things in.
We have Apple TV +Netflix and Stan at your disposal. No Free to Air TV or Cable I'm sorry. Of course there is Wifi for your convenience.
Just recapping that in total there is one King sized bed, one Queen sized and two King single beds.
Please note that the house is not very practical for the under 5's - mostly due to the wide entrance stairs that are difficult to block off. We don't mind you inquiring though. We aren't against little ones, just making sure you know to ask the right questions.
We have amazing big ocean views and breezes, but as the rate suggests, we are not right on the beach, we are behind the main road into town David Low Way - so THERE IS SOME ROAD NOISE - mostly during the day. Those that need absolute tranquility need to be aware of this, this house will not be right for you.
ADDITIONALLY - WE ARE EXTREMELY DOG FRIENDLY.
It is Doggie Heaven here...both in the house and in Noosa in general.
Dog beaches are a short walk from the house, but we also supply information on good dog and human walking/interacting spaces to help out those who are bringing the 'fur kids' with them.
Dogs get their own beds, towels and a toy box of things to play with. They are welcome in the house as well as in a fully fenced yard. There is an enormous area under the house as this is an elevated pole home for them to explore and sniff if they like the outdoors more than the indoors. It's mostly sand and some pretty hardy plants down there, so they get free reign. Fences are very high and secure.
Where is Sunrise Beach?
Sunrise Beach/Noosa Heads is on the East Coast of Australia. It is a highly desirable location by the domestic and the international visitors. Great weather, fantastic beaches and blue water- but there's more Noosa has a very loyal following as it is not just a relaxing beach destination, it also has a rich foodie culture, with sensational restaurants and cafes, as well as a thriving artistic community.
Sunrise, Sunshine and Noosa Heads all share the same post code - they are all within a very short distance of each other. You are in the famous Hastings Street within 5 minutes in the car. You are in The Junction in 2-3 minutes where you can catch a movie or do your supermarket shopping. There is a bus stop 2 minutes walk away if you are not planning on bringing your car.
If you are flying in, there is a great service to get you to dropped at the door of the house - Henry's - Ask if you need more information about this. There is also the Uber option if that is something you are comfortable with.
The famous artsy 'Eumundi Markets' are a short 20 minute drive away. We have the mountains behind us for an alternative to the soaking up of the beach for those that want some hiking or just a great Devonshire Tea The now World famous Australia Zoo Steve Irwin, aka 'The Crocodile Hunter is just one hour away. We have some fantastic Day Spa's and a couple of world class golf courses, including Australia's PGA Championship Golf Course. If you want any recommendations, just ask.
It is a pretty sporty place if you love your active life. One of the premium Triathlons on the World circuit happens here because of its weather and its perfect run/swim/cycle environment.
Lot's of gorgeous walks. Even if you live here, you can't do them all, there are just so many choices No matter what your fitness level, you will LOVE the Noosa National Park. If you are super lucky you may see the schools of Dolphins that i seem to catch on most of my walks
If you stay in our house around July to September, you may also see the Whales as they migrate about two hours drive further Nth Hervey Bay to have their babies each year..then they guide them back around September. We usually catch them going by the house from the balcony in one direction or the other. it is a MUST DO to drive that two hours Nth if you are here around August - the Whales are AMAZINGLY playful
I lived a hectic corporate life in Asia for many years, my sanity was saved by my trips home here to the beach of Noosa. It is a wonderful place to rest a weary mind/body/soul as much as it is one for a the very active.
For some more all encompassing information on Noosa, please have a look at their official tourism website, you will find all sorts of specific interest things there.
