About this listing
Stay amongst the rainforest with ocean glimpses. The Cove Studio is in a quiet neighbourhood, 250m from the beach and a 12 min coastal walk to the cafes, restaurants and shops of the Coolum Beach village.
The Cove Studio apartment is the lower level of our two storey home. The studio is furnished with an eclectic mix of retro, antique and modern elements to suit the relaxed coastal setting. It has an open plan with lounge area and kitchenette. The kitchenette is equipped with a bar fridge, kettle, toaster, pod coffee machine, sandwich maker and an assortment of crockery and utensils.
The bed is a quality Ulisse Queen wall bed with a Visco Elastic Memory Foam mattress and posture slat base for maximum comfort and support.
The bifold doors open onto a large deck for your use. On it is a BBQ that can also be set up for cooking with saucepans/frypan.
The studio has an overhead fan for cooling in summer and a very effective heater for warmth in winter.
The studio has a large WC with vanity and shelving.
Adjoining the studio is the common laundry with another vanity and the shower.
Access to the studio is from the carport through the security door directly into the studio. Once the studio is unlocked access is also available through the bifold doors and deck.
There is one car parking space available for guests on site. Be aware that the driveway is particularly steep. Some cars and vans can have difficulty getting up the driveway, and others zip up with no problems. However, parking is also available on the street.
Due to the nature of the house, driveway and block, disabled access is challenging.
Interaction with guests
While the studio is private, we live upstairs. We lead an active lifestyle and are often up reasonably early for a surf or a run. We don't tend to be very noisy... except for some guitar playing. We are available to assist guests where we can, have a chat (or a jam) and offer guidance should you need it. Otherwise we are happy for you to have your privacy.
We will endeavour to meet you on arrival. If it is impossible we will organise key collection and touch base by phone. There are odd times when we may be out of town. If this is the case, we will communicate this with you prior to your arrival.
Coolum has stunning beaches. The main beach in town is patrolled in front of the Surf Life Saving Club. Be aware that the beach at the bays in front of The Cove Studio is not patrolled. It is popular for surfing, relaxing on the beach and exploring rock pools.
The Coolum Beach village has many cafes and restaurants. We are happy to give you advice on eating options.
It isn't essential to have a car when staying at The Cove Studio, however if the weather is a little damp a car would be advised. Coolum village is a 12-15 minute walk along the coastal path, depending on your pace and if you stop to watch whales (seasonal) or dolphins or waves or birds or boats or just stop to view the beautiful coastline.
A bus stop is about 400m away from the studio. Buses can take you northward in the direction of Peregian Beach and Noosa Heads, or southward to Maroochydore and Mooloolaba.
The hinterland is worth exploring with lovely towns, beautiful national parks and waterfalls, and stunning scenery. This outing requires a car.
Sunshine Coast Airport is ten minutes away by car. (Local shuttle services are available)
Other things to note
We have recently adopted a beautiful mature age labrador called Millie. She is restricted to the upstairs area and back yard so she won't be "knocking on your door" for attention, however she does love to meet new people.
Absolutely no smoking or pets on the property please.
Mindfulness of noise during the late and early hours would be much appreciated.
2 nights minimum bookings, and 3 nights minimum on long weekends.
