Parking is available closest to the studio ( rt hand side of the driveway) for your car. Your entrance is through a gate to the right of the main house. You will receive a key code to the keybox beside the gate with confirmation of your booking.

Interaction with guests

It's important to let us know what time you think you will arrive so we can leave a key out if we are out working. We are happy to chat with you to let you know all the wonderful things there are to do on the Sunshine Coast - the studio has maps and brochures for you to peruse. There may be times we share the pool over the summer.

The neighbourhood

Our neighbourhood on top of Buderim is quiet and north facing for those who love the warmth in winter and the breezes in summer. The sunsets over the hinterland are stunning! Buderim is incredibly central on the Sunshine Coast with easy access to all attractions and only 8 minutes drive to Mooloolaba beach, Alex Headlands beach and Maroochydore. It's only a 35 minute drive North to Noosa and it's a glorious drive along the coast to get there. It's 35 minutes up into the hinterland to the picturesque towns of Maleny, Montville and Mapleton, Kondalilla Falls and Lake Baroon.

Getting around

The public buses are a 10 minute walk from our house. There's a shuttle bus that does direct pick up and drop off to the house from the airports.

Other things to note

There is a little dog, Millie who resides in the family home - very friendly - so please don't bring non dog friendly dogs to the property. Sunrise is the family black and white cat who runs the show - if you bring a dog be warned Sunrise is the king around here!

Thoroughly enjoyed our time at Marys wonderful cottage. Had everything at our disposal. Our privacy was respected, it surely was a home away from home. Mary was so accomodating.

Would highly recommend this accommodation and hosts. Bernhardt and Mary are wonderful friendly people with amazing attention to detail. The accommodation and gardens are immaculate and very comfortable. Great location in a quiet street. Pet friendly thank you both.

Great location tucked away from the rush. Very close to all beaches markets and cafes. We received great advice off Mary for good places to try out and which beaches we could and couldn't go to with our dogs.

Mary's place was a nice hideaway for rest and relaxation. We had a great time both exploring the town and relaxing in the pool!

A hidden gem in Buderim! We have stayed at other B& Bs in this area but this was a private, self-contained unit with a private entrance. the owners were very pleasant and engaging but at the same time not intrusive. A very quiet place to stay with the bonus of a friendly dog, Millie.

Hi, I'm a New Zealander living on the Sunshine Coast. My daughter has moved to the USA and there's only myself and my husband Bernhard in this beautiful home that looks north towards Noosa. I'm a private midwife on call 24/7 and am passionate about normal empowering births. Most of my women choose to birth in a sacred and spiritual environment - their home. I involve my clients in alternative health therapies to empower them to birth naturally and calmly and to have the best birthing experience possible.
We love our coastline beaches, and it's only an 8 minute drive to Mooloolaba, Cotton Tree and Maroochydore beaches where the waves are for gentle surfers most of the time. I love body surfing, - using the surfboard was a bit of a challenge!!
Bernhard and I love to travel; Europe, South America, Africa, we have only just begun and next year we will take off for a year or two exploring the world using our TEASOL to work in communities teaching English. Last year Bernhard took part in the Triathalon Ironman in Roth Germany with buddies before we travelled on through France (at the time of the Tour de France), exploring the Alps down to the coast. Loved it!!
We enjoy reading, socialising, Ausie BBQ's, healthy foods and healthy cooking, exersize for fun and fitness, our pets - a cat and a dog; walking the beaches and exploring the country in our 4 wheel drive Troop carrier which has been converted to a camper. Bernhard is an keen gardener so you'll find all sorts of tropical plants and fruit in and around our property.
We are casual in appearance, love time with our good friends, meeting people, and having a good laugh.
As a host and hostess we can help you plan your exploration of the Sunshine Coast , tell you about good restaurants, shopping, walks, scenery, activities and ensure you have a restful stay at our house. You can relax by the pool, do lengths if you're a swimmer, lift some weights, cook up a BBQ, and if you require, we can provide you with breakfast.There's the internet, TV, Apple TV, and all sorts of reading material should it be a cooler day for inside activities. We can accommodate most preferences so your stay is what you want.
