“Spotless accommodation in a beautiful location”
Reviewed 29 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We stayed here for 3 nights with our daughter and had a fabulous time. The accommodation is spotless and everything you might require is provided. The owners clearly spend a lot of time maintaining the property. The views from the property are outstanding and can be enjoyed from all the main rooms including the bedroom, the long veranda, the bbq and from all the seating areas dotted around. We enjoyed all the wildlife that came to visit the garden. The owners were exceptionally helpful and friendly. Thank you for a great few days.

“A perfect vacation home in front of water”
Reviewed 22 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Everything about this place was just perfect. You have a speechless ocean view from your windows, and the suite is 5 stars hotel level spotless clean. The king size bed was so comfy, every night I fell asleep right after I put my head on the pillow, even smells fantastic! I enjoyed watching a variety of wildlife including humming birds, deer, eagle, sea lion, otter, etc. There is a private dock if you want to enjoy water activities. The kitchen is very wekk equipped. We only brought grocery and everything else we needed was there.
Gaylene and Daniel are warm hearted and welcoming hosts. They made everything possible for us to make our vacation special. We are so blessed to find these beautiful people and got to stay at their house. They welcomed us like family and made us feel like we were at home.
If you want a serene vacation home away from the noise and city, this is the place. I will go back in the near future.

Thank you so much for your review! We really enjoyed having you both to stay here also and your joie de vivre of nature. We are pleased you had a good sleep on the king bed, which is very important for a really good vacation and rest from bustling city life. The air out here is also beautiful and fresh. With my banana trees and flowers I try to make a little oasis in the forest for the birds, butterflies, bees etc., not to mention all the deer we have coming by (especially during this dry summer with birdbaths for them to drink from etc.). Our property is a bit like a mini resort, except you are the only guest! Daniel and I look forward to having you both to stay again...even fall and winter is beautiful and relaxing out here. Thank you for choosing our suite.

“The Perfect Getaway Suite! Ocean View and Sunsets!!”
Reviewed 30 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We were so happy with everything about our recent stay at the Wharf Waterfront Suite. Gaylene & Daniel met us outside and gave us a tour of the suite. What a difference when the owners of the property are the ones who let you in and show you around! They take great pride of ownership in this rental, as they should! The suite was very large, with lots of windows for enjoying the view. The kitchen had everything we needed, and the bathroom too. The king size bed was SO comfortable! And oh the bliss of waking up to the view of the ocean with boats floating by. Pictures really can't do it justice. We only stayed three days, but wished it was a few more. Each night we made sure to be back to the suite to enjoy the incredible sunsets. Each one was spectacular and viewed right from our balcony. Also, the suite was surprisingly cool when it was so very hot outside! Like there was A/C going--Very refreshing! It was fun to walk to their dock and relax on the water too. It was the perfect way to celebrate our anniversary, and explore the sunshine coast! Thanks so much to Gaylene & Daniel for sharing this little slice of heaven with their guests!! We hope to visit again!!

“A little piece of Heaven”
Reviewed 24 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We were fortunate enough to find this gem for an Easter weekend break on The Sunshine Coast. We like peace and quiet and that is certainly what we got! The location is wonderful with views across the water from every window and a spacious deck to enjoy. There is access (steep) to the dock with a delightful summer house to sit in. Wildlife is all around and the gardens are beautifully tended, there are lots of bird feeders to attract the humming birds. Inside, the property is immaculate and very well presented. The owners, Gaylene and Daniel, were very informative before our arrival and equally as helpful when we were on site. They even fixed the weather for us! We have all put their details in our contacts as we are sure to visit again!

Thank you so much for taking the time to post this (beautiful) review of our suite Janet! We are so glad you chose to stay with us on the Sunshine Coast. It was extremely nice to meet the three of you, and you were wonderful to have here as guests. Would love to accommodate you again in the hopefully not too distant future. If you came in the summer you could have a warm swim in one of our lakes or take a cool dip off our wharf! Gaylene and Daniel

“A Blissful Oasis!”
Reviewed 18 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

If you’re looking for some serious R&R, the Wharf Waterfront Suite is the place. We loved our stay and the list of reasons is long. Gaylene and Daniel are warm hosts who are eager to provide a first rate experience. As the pictures indicate, the suite was spotless (our first criteria for any vacation rental), very spacious and bright that was very welcoming. The highlight of our stay was the glorious 180 degree view of the harbor from many vantage points (from the deck, from the dock and from an upper level seating area). The king-sized bed compared to high-end private hotels that, combined with the quietness of the area, provided a restful reprieve from our busy urban lives. We made good use of the BBQ and outdoor burners to prepare some memorable meals. We also enjoyed the great local pub, scenic hikes/walks and water activities. Thank you to both of you as you have an awesome place providing us now with a wonderful memory.
