Description

The Space

Toorbul is a small coastal village situated on the shores of Pumicestone Passage, opposite Bribie Island. The area is renowned for its fishing, boating, water sports and picturesque ambiance. Only 50 minutes from Brisbane International and Domestic airports. 30 minutes from Australia Zoo, and 50 minutes from Caloundra and the Sunshine Coast. There is only a small convenience store, Tavern and Pharmacy, there are NO other stores. ATM’s and Service Stations are a 15-20 minute drive from Toorbul. Serendipity - Outdoor Areas Front gardens and swimming pool All outside areas are ‘common’; however, we do our utmost to ensure your privacy. The swimming pool is cleaned daily. Access is required along the pathway outside your front door. If you are staying for a few days or more, there may be occasions that the lawns require mowing and the gardens tended. Before we commence cleaning the pool, mowing or gardening, we will notify you, ensuring that you are comfortable with our access. Driveway We use the driveway for our vehicle to enter and exit the property. The access may also be used for friends and family, who may visit to enter our floor via the rear stairs. Guests’ vehicles are parked on the nature strip in front of the premises. Back gardens and under croft This area is frequented by us for using the clothesline, the table setting and gardening. You are more than welcome to come and have a chat or to use the area without our presence. Naturally, your privacy is the first consideration at all times. Out the back Fortunately, there is a large area outside our property that we mow for protection against bushfires and snakes. Our grandchildren use this area to ride bikes, play footy or chasing games – you and your children are more than welcome to use this area too. This is private property; however, residents along its boundary tend to the area. We simply request that you respect our neighbours and limit your noise. Wildlife Kangaroos use our property to access the bushlands behind our home. They will either use the driveway and under croft, or hop along the side of the house near your bedrooms, so if you hear crunching noises on the gravel pathway, it will be the Kangaroos. Remember that the Kangaroos are wild animals, and while they enjoy a piece of bread now and again, we suggest you keep a respectful distance especially from the males. However, they possess personalities and will often be as interested in you as you are in them.

Getting Around

Toorbul's Esplanade is the perfect setting for a quiet walk, a run if you wish to be more active, or simply an area where you can sit and relax. Bikes are a great way to see our small coastal village, however, you will need to use your vehicle to access Toorbul and its surrounds.

Other Things to Note

Toorbul is a quiet fishing village with a Tavern and small Convenience store that sell the very basics.

The apartment is close to the Sunshine Coast and Hinterland.

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
