Interaction with guests
We live onsite so we can usually welcome you, show you around the apartment and give you a brief introduction to the area and the range of local activities. After that, we give guests their privacy unless they welcome interaction. However, we can still answer any queries by SMS. There is a key safe next to the front door in case we are away.

Please note that there are garden stairs down to the front door (see photos), and short areas of path where suitcase wheels are not effective.

Great accommodation, exactly as advertised. Eating breakfast in the beautiful garden was a daily highlight. Perfect location: a short walk to the local shops, beach and national park. Our hosts were extremely welcoming and gave very helpful suggestions regarding restaurants, local walks and bike rides. Highly recommended.

Management response:

So glad Kirsty! - It's such a pleasure when our accommodation style suits our guest's preferences.

I had the pleasure of spending a week at Sunshine Beach Garden retreat earlier this year and loved it. Holidaying alone, I felt completely safe and secure and the owners Jean and Pete bent over backwards to ensure I was extremely comfortable. The apartment is architecturally designed and very thoughtfully appointed. It's private and set on the edge of a...
