Laurelea is my haven of peace and serenity in a secluded but central spot of the Cooloola Coast, that is Gympie. I've spent years here, working, relaxing, it's my home away from home - and like me and every guest who has stayed before, you'll never want to leave. This property is an ideal retreat, for commuters, travelers, bridal prep or visiting family.

“Bambie has absolutely nailed how to host an Air BnB. The grand old lady Laurelea has everything you could want in a home away from home. It feels like your good friend telling you to use their home while they are away. So much love style and care has been put into this home. This was the absolute best Air BnB experience we have had. Great location. The pub 200 m up the road was a very pleasant surprise for dinner. Great meals at a reasonable prjce. Highly recommend if you stay in Gympie”
Time to catch your breath and have a well-earned break?! Panorama Cottage is the place to be! Sitting high on a scenic rim, the Cottage is very comfortable and very well appointed. Relax on the front deck with a glass of wine and take in the stunning views across the Mary Valley. The Mary Valley Rattler steam engine runs past the Cottage on Wed, Sat and Sunday - a majestic sight! We’re sure you’ll enjoy the peace and quiet, magnificent sunsets and profusion of wild birds.
“Gorgeous place to unwind and soak up the peace and quiet. Steve and Denise’s cottage was perfect. There is everything you need to enjoy your experience. I especially loved the lighting in the bathroom in the afternoon (I won’t spoil it for you) just wait and see. Very comfortable bed, cosy lounge with warm blankets for sitting outside in winter by the fireplace. I recommend staying here for sure.”

“David and Anne greeted my little family with such warm hospitality and the space itself was pristine, modern and extremely handy being so close to the highway. Despite the close proximity to the highway, Charlotte’s rest is quiet and we all got a very good night’s rest after a long day of driving. The property has chooks, wild ducks on the dam and an array of gorgeous parrots that our toddler was particularly delighted in meeting and Anne graciously took the time out to introduce us to each bird and tell us their individual stories. We even met the famous Charlotte! Would definitely stay at Charlotte’s Rest again when passing by and highly recommend - by far the best Air BnB we’ve stayed in.”
