The Resort itself is located very centrally. Internationally renowned Hastings Street is 500 metres, with Main Beach adjacent, and Noosa Junction, which caters for all your supermarket needs, together with banks, chemists and numerous boutiques is only 150 metres in the other direction.
At Mooloolaba, you are in the front row seats to enjoy all that this beautiful part of the world has to offer.
Our townhouse is 200 metres from the life saver patrolled Mooloolaba surf beach with its famous and safe north facing beach. The natural beauty of the area is something we never tire of and we are truly fortunate to have a small part of this paradise. For the surfers, the Alexandra Heads surf break has a consistent swell and is easily accessible 400 metres north and has surfing lessons available if you need them. The golfers have a choice of 9 courses in the immediate vicinity including the PGA championship course at Hyatt Coolum and other quality courses such as Twin Waters and Pelican Waters along the Sunshine Coast, all within 30 minutes drive of Mooloolaba. Kangaroos feeding and sunning themselves on the course have right of way (local rule)!
If you are keen on catching your own, the fishing along the Mooloolah ocean reefs and river has plenty of secret spots and if the fish arenâ€™t biting there is always the option of succulent fresh fish straight off the boat at the Mooloolaba Fishermanâ€™s Co-operative. For yachties, the Mooloolaba marina is of international standard as a blue water destination and a must stay on any voyage north to the Whitsundays or beyond and for those not quite as adventurous, the Sunday sailing on Mooloolaba bay is immensely popular with a fleet of up to 100 boats competing.
For scuba diving enthusiasts, the HMAS Brisbane was decommissioned and scuttled 2km off Mooloolaba in 25m of water as a recreational dive site and has become a major drawcard for many recreational divers. The Mooloolaba Bowls Club is 200m behind our house, and is a warm and friendly place with good competition bowls or a casual barefoot game. There is a great bar, Sunday Night carvery and live entertainment in the clubhouse.
Mooloolaba and the Sunshine Coast has an extensive network of walking and bicycle tracks for you to enjoy, including waterfalls and pristine rainforest at nearby Buderim.
And if the active recreation is all too much, then we are spoilt with the great range of cafĂ©s, alfresco restaurants, casual and upmarket dining, exclusive boutiques and galleries along the Mooloolaba Esplanade. The iconic Mooloolaba Surf Club serves great meals including the freshest seafood platters and steaks and is a spectacular location to have a cold beer or good wine whilst watching the sun set over the Mooloolaba Bay.
The hinterland of the Glass House Mountains is a subtropical rainforest paradise and provides a beautiful backdrop to the ocean frontage. Explore quaint mountain towns such as Maleny and Eumundi which are noted for their arts, crafts, galleries, wine and cheese, music festivals and markets, which attract plenty of people. Food and Wine festivals are also hosted throughout the region.
Fraser Island is just off Noosa coastline and as the worldâ€™s largest sand island has abundant natural beauty for you to explore.
There are many cultural activities throughout the year, and with Brisbane just 1 hour by road, you have access to the best live theatre and shows, musicals and cultural festivals and premier sporting events.
On the domestic front, we are 100m to the local supermarket complex which has a bakery, newsagent, large supermarket, bottle shop, pub, chemist, bank and ATMâ€™s. Also within close proximity is the local doctorâ€™s clinic and allied health professionalâ€™s.
The bus stop is 50 metres away with a regular and reliable service that can take you to all parts of the Sunshine Coast including Noosa to the North to Caloundra to the South. The major shopping centre is Sunshine Plaza which is 10 minutes away on the bus or by car. The Sunshine Coast University is also 10 minutes away by car or bus and there are plenty of primary and secondary school and preschools in the area.
As you can imagine, there is also no shortage of tourist information or attractions available so it is best that we direct you to the links below to give you a better feel of the area.
Brisbane is the capital city of Queensland and the closest International Airport is 1 hour away from Mooloolaba. The Sunshine Coast airport connects to most Australian cities and is 15 minutes drive away. There are often greatly discounted flight specials to all Australian destinations from both airports. The Great Barrier Reef and Whitsunday Islands to the north and Sydney to the south are 1 hourâ€™s flight away from Brisbane. Cairns is 2 hours north and Melbourne is 2 hours south by plane, so feel free use our home as your base to explore Australia!!
The climate is as close to perfect as you can get. The region averages 7 hours of sunshine per day year round. Autumn (March â€“ May) is between 13 â€“ 25 degrees C, Winter ( June â€“ August) is between 7 - 22 degrees C and Spring (September â€“ November) 14 â€“ 28 degrees C. The seawater temperature ranges between 19C in winter to 26C in summer so swimming and surfing year round is always popular.
Our home is fully air-conditioned however it is rarely used as we enjoy lovely sea breezes throughout the day.
We are a quiet yet active, respectful professional family and like to enjoy a clean, tidy and well presented house. We trust that you choose to uphold the same standards.
We are non smokers and if you are, we request that you smoke outdoors.
We are happy to assist with basic gardening, mowing, watering of your garden.
We can provide personal references if you require.
