“Not worth the money spent”
Reviewed 20 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Dissappointed on arrival , Basic amenities like soap and Toilet paper were not supplied. The pool was very dirty, dead tadpoles floating.
Even the towels had to be paid for as extras .
The property is located in a mosquito infested place as there is stagnant water in the streams around . Slleping at night was very difficult.
All in all not worth the money spent.

To Dr Das,
Sorry to hear your holiday was unenjoyable. I would have attended to your issues immediately had I known.
The first I knew of your problems was a week after you stay requesting a refund.
The pool was cleaned a few days before your stay. The guests after your stay and the cleaners said the pool was not dirty and clean.
Mosquitoes since the cyclone over Easter where at every Sunshine Coast home (you can google it) but I am not sure how they entered the house with fly screens on every window and door.
Toilet paper and soap should have been left in each bathroom. I am sorry but I would have brought it straight to you if you called me.
I am more than happy to try to please all guests and help them feel as comfortable as possible on their beautiful Sunshine Coast Queensland relaxing beach holiday.
We hope you enjoy your next holiday Dr Das.
Kind regards,
Alison Little.

Reviewed 23 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Gorgeous accommodation, fabulous location for both pets and their people! There is everything you could need and a bit more in this lovely holiday home - it is very comfortable and stylish. A beautiful and dog friendly beach is only a short stroll or drive away, as are great places to eat!! Will definitely be returning!!

“Relaxing, comfortable, great amenities, close to beach.”
Reviewed 5 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

Location is great. Easy walking distance to patrolled beach, local shops and Surf Club.
House is a great space for a couple, and a plus one or a smaller sized family.
The pool was wonderful for daily swims, and for those with kids very easy to monitor them from the verandah or kitchen.
Fully air conditioned for a respite from the heat, plus cable TV, pool and ping pong table and lovely bicycles with helmets all provided. Masses of crockery etc. which was so useful for the family Xmas day gathering.
Best of all our precious dogs could come with us for the week and the house and yard is very dog friendly.
Can't wait to go back.

“If holidaying with teenagers and pets you will not find a better place to stay”
Reviewed 14 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

person found this review helpful

The Sunny Coast Shack was everything I had hoped for and more. All the little touches were fabulous such as having washing detergent, laundry detergent, salt, pepper, alfoil, clingfilm supplied was great, not to mention the king sized bath towels. The table tennis and pool table is great for teenagers. Foxtel meant we all stayed up as a family watching movies each night. The accommodation was clean and we loved the retro styling. The beach was just a short walk away. Honestly cannot fault this property and to be able to go away with your furbabies, there is nothing better. The dogs were so excited for their daily walks on the beach. This is really a great little find, I guarantee you will not be disappointed. We will definitely be back as this place will be hard to beat.

“Home away from home”
Reviewed 4 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This holiday home had everything you could need to enjoy a short or long stay, and all within a couple of minutes walk to beautiful Marcoola Beach.
The pool and pool table kept my teenage children occupied when we weren't down the beach or out exploring on the brand new bicycles which come with the Sunny Coast Shack.
The kitchen was well equipped and the house and yard were very clean.
A fantastic house to take children of any age and the best part was our two dogs could join us on our family holiday. They enjoyed their time at the Sunny Coast Shack as much as us and only a short walk to an early morning beach off-leash area.

“Cute beach house, perfect getaway and bonus the dog gets to come along too”
Reviewed 4 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Marcoola Beach is a wonderful peaceful holiday destination, where you can go to the beach and sometimes be the only person swimming between the flags. Sunny Coast Shack is on a busy road, but this noise isn't noticeable from inside the house. It is beautifully appointed with a beach theme. It has everything you need. Loved the pool. Especially enjoyed the pool table. Also enjoyed having 2 TVs and air-conditioning in the living room and bedroom.
It is well fenced for the dog. Dog friendly beach is a short stroll away and the off leash beach between 5-8 am and pm is not far to walk.
