About our home

I live in a remodeled apartment, which is one of 9 units here at Villa Caribe, In beautiful Sunshine Beach. What I love best about the apartment is the big French doors which open out to a lovely covered patio and tropical style garden. One bedroom has been made into an office/art studio, so really that just leaves one bedroom, suitable for a couple or single person. I'd love to swap here in Australia, or in Maui where my sister lives. There is a carport, and I am happy to leave you with my car, a well maintained Mazda 2. You are close to the beach, shops, bus, Noosa, our Famous National Park, and many other points of interest and entertainment. The VERY best part of Queensland. With Great climate year round. I am willing to do from 2 weeks to 2 months, what ever works for you. I have great references from previous home exchange partners.

Where is it?


Leafy Green neighbourhood, like an extension of the Noosa National Park just 2 blocks away. Birds singing most of the day. This is a small seaside area next to Noosa. Sunshine Beach is a very long white sandy beach with many accesses, and life saving areas to swim in. Just a short sweet walk to our one street village where there are several fine dining restaurants, a new Lifesaving Cub opening in Dec. We have a small but well stocked store, surf shop, clothes and house wares shop, several fine coffee shops, and a few real estate offices. I live in a small apartment complex of 9, called Villa Caribe, nicely maintained, tropical feel, pool. Carport covered on 2 sides. I am willing to do a car swap as well if you like. Mine is a Mazda 2, manual, easy to drive and park. There is a great bus system here which goes everywhere, my closest stop is less than 2 blocks away. The Sunshine Coast Airport is just 30 mins. away, and the Brisbane airport is 1 and a half hours away. We have lakes, a river, and the ocean, the everglades, as well as rain forest. Markets galore. Only 40 mins. drive to the mountains, and 20 mins. to the hinterland. Lovely temperatures year round. I am looking for a swap between Nov. and mid March, could be any length of time that suits you, 2 weeks to 2 months.
