Guest Reviews

It is impossible to simply put into words the joy we get from hosting and the friends we have made and the amazing people we have met over the years. We are constantly flooded with Thank You notes and a favourite is to get guest notes on our blackboards we write our welcome messages on.
So many guests, so many happy guests who's reviews truly touch our hearts and have helped us to reach Superhost status, something we worked hard for and are very proud of. Guest are a priority and making them happy certainly brings joy to our lives.

We can see why Sue and Mark are superhosts. Great and prompt communication, helpful, non intrusive, approachable. This is a well appointed and well maintained spacious property with a real beachy feel and a lovely sea breeze. There has clearly been alot of thought put into the detail. Sue and Mark have a good understanding of what guests would like or need. If you forgot to pack something (including dog supplies), don't worry, it will be there. The property is located in a beautiful part of the Sunshine Coast. Very relaxing surrounds with an option of simply doing nothing or exploring a variety of beaches, activities and sights. The nearby off leash dog area at the beach was perfect for both our dog and our daughter. A special mention to Cindy for the excellent level of cleanliness. Thank you for a great stay.

What Gabrielle Loved about your listing 
“From the get go Sue was the ultimate in hosts. We first had our trip booked in May and unfortunatley one of our dogs became very sick, Sue was very understanding and allowed up to postpone. Sue is wonderful at replying to you, always prompt and ready to answer any questions you may have. We checked in to find a welcome note on a blackboard, with scooby doo treats for the dogs, pancake mix, lemon and sugar on the counter, this made you instantly feel like you are welcome. The unit has everything you could wish for and is beautifully appointed with wall hangings and knick knacks, it has a great back yard for the dogs to play in and is very safe. The weather was howling with wind and rain the entire week but this did not have an impact on us. We put the rain jackets on and took the dogs walking to Stumers Creek and drove to North Beach Mudjimba where we walked in torrential rain. The unit felt like home as soon as we walked in, we cooked up some great meals and snuggled in watching Netflix, reading and sleeping. Our dogs immediately felt at home and slept on the sofa with the dog blankets Sue provided. We loved our holiday and will be back. We highly recommend Puppies, Pushies and Pancakes for your next holiday with your beloved fur babies. Thank you Sue.” 
What  Lisa  loved about your listing
Sue is a very caring host with attention to detail. Even though we didn't get to meet her we felt very supported by her txt messages. She checked in with us to make sure everything was okay and suggested places to visit. The apartment had everything we needed. Fresh bread and fruit loaf and milk made our early evening arrival so much better. A coffee machine was an extra touch. The place was clean and close to everything. We didn't use the bikes but we thought it was a great extra for anyone wanting to ride around. We cannot say enough about our great experience there 
What  kate  loved about your listing
Sue & Mark's place is an absolute gem & epitomises what I believe Airbnb is all about! Coolum Beach is a very friendly part of the Sunshine Coast with a gorgeous beach & off-leash dog area to boot. I loved lounging on the back patio (think comfy egg chairs!) in the morning sun with a good book (there is a small library provided!) & my cuppa! The place is totally dog friendly with a well-fenced yard, doggie bowls & even a treat on arrival - I'm sure my pooch had just as lovely a stay as I did:)

What Sue loved about your listing:
Sue's an awesome host. She picked us up from the airport and dropped us at the bus station on leaving. The unit has everything you need including bikes, beach towels, condiments and those things you appreciate like cling wrap, foil, oil etc The bed is comfy. The unit is an easy flat 20 minute walk or five minute ride to shops, restaurants, supermarket and cafes etc. There are buses going north and south so it's easy to get around if you don't have a car.   
What Meghan loved about your listing
Upon arrival, Sue made it completely clear that she had already made it her mission to make us feel welcome and comfortable. We arrived early morning from the United states, so we felt incredibly tired. Sue had stocked the refrigerator with necessities and prepared a fruit bowl for us to enjoy to provide time to settle in and begin our own adventures, once rested. Our experience only improved from here. Just a short walk from the Noosa National Park and the beach, we had plenty to do from the get go. Yet mountain bikes provided at the comfy flat allowed for even more exploration, and being situated just off David Low Highway, (which is bike friendly) we were able to make our way into Coolum and Peregian Beach. The flat itself is exactly how it's advertised. There exists ample living space for two, as well as a covered table to enjoy meals outside. The space does not have air conditioning, yet we were able to cool down the space at night by leaving the windows open and keeping the fans going. A washing machine is available, and while it took some time to do all of our laundry, it didn't matter when we kept ourselves preoccupied walking the beach or hiking up Emu Mountain. A clothes line provided the means to dry our clothes, when needed. Finally, you won't find better hosts than Sue and Mark. Cindy, the resident who lives upstairs, also checked in regularly to make sure everything was going smoothly. Sue and Mark busily worked on the space next door, so we spent some time with them on the weekends (slowing their construction progress, no doubt!) Yet I've never enjoyed a couple more. Sue made sure our sugar and coffee supplies remained stocked, and she went out of her way to familiarize us with the area and suggest destinations to see during our stay. After our two weeks of pure enjoyment and fun learning about the Sunshine Coast, Sue and Mark hosted a barbie so we could taste some "roo" kabobs and sausages. Yet what I remember most from the wonderful meal and evening was the conversation and the joviality among everyone. It seemed as though in the two short weeks we stayed with them, we had become good friends. In conclusion, consider these wonderful hosts for your next trip to this area. You won't arrive disappointed, nor leave that way, either.
What Kay loved about your listing
After a long drive it was absolutely wonderful to open the front door of this little gem. So spotlessly clean, so beautifully and thoughtfully planned out. The host had thought of everything, from food in the fridge and pantry to beach towels, lovely linen, a super comfy bed and everything you need in a kitchen...too much to list here as the list goes on and on. Whenever I stay at an AIRBNB I seem to come across bigger and better, but what Sue and Mark provide is indeed very touching and much appreciated..and once sgain bigger and better !! Their friendly and caring nature makes you feel more than just an AIRBNB guest....yes they are two very special people who know the meaning of sharing and caring. Oh and their two little doggies, such a joy. Sue and Mark, thank you for letting us be a part of your world and enjoying true hospitality....We will certainly be back xxx
What Cory loved about your listing
Wow!!!! What a great place and one that is the true meaning of dog friendly. The house is immaculately presented and fully fenced. Our furry friends even had a treat waiting for them. Sue and Cindy made us feel truely welcome and were easily contactable if we needed anything. Excellent value for money.....would highly recommend....and if we get back to the Sunshine coast it will be a no brainer.
What Mark loved about your listing
We arrived at the unit and immediately were impressed by the cleanliness and wonderful 'homey' feel it had. There were ingredients waiting for us to make pancakes and a note on a blackboard welcoming us. The unit was ultra clean and beautifully styled. We immediately felt relaxed. The area itself had many great restaurants to try as well as plenty of walking tracks to explore. Most importantly for us for this trip, our furkids were catered for exceptionally well. There were treats waiting for them on arrival and a cupboard dedicated to their well being with bowls, shampoo and a lead. There was also a chest of towels and blankets especially for our boys. The best bit for them I think was having the off lead dog beach so close. They got to go for a walk every day. Sue kept in touch to make sure we were happy and didn't need anything. All together it was an awesome stay, we couldn't have asked for anything more. We'll definitely be back soon.
What Sarah loved about your listing
Sue is a wonderful host, who genuinely loves her place and wants you to enjoy it too. She was very friendly and accomodating with check in and check out, giving us an early check in as no one had stayed the night beforehand. It is a wonderful place to stay, even more so if you have pets. You can walk into Coolum or jump on their bikes and ride in. We can't wait to go back and stay again. Highly recommended.
What Jillian loved about your listing
This apartment was absolutely beautiful!! It is so bright and spacious and well decorated. We loved that we could walk to the beach and it was central to many areas of the Sunshine Coast. Great shops and restaurants not far away, and Noosa was 10 minutes away. The amenities were superb and well thought out. The bed was very comfortable and all other possible things you would need were supplied...shampoo and soap for example. Plus pancakes! We will definitely stay again given the opportunity.
What  Denise loved about your listing
Sue, Mark and Cindy were great hosts. Although we didn't get to meet them communication was only a very quick email away. Excellent communication, The flat is very clean and tidy and they have thought of everything a traveller appreciates. Bread and milk and cereal if you arrive hungry from an early or late flight. Cooking oil and condiments of all sorts. Also tea and coffee. A great manual is supplied for the flat and lots of local info. Lovely bed linen and bath towels. The flat was extremely comfortable and we would stay there again.
