C’mon, we’d be kidding ourselves if we said we didn’t Airbnb and love it!
Snooping out other people’s homes (legally) is a passion of ours, and Airbnb gives us the ticket to experience someone else’s abode for a day, a week, a month. Basically, you can totally live that dream of being a surfer dude or a slow-living country gal, without making a serious commitment. What’s not to love?!
Whether you’re aching for a staycation somewhere nearby, or you’re holidaying from interstate, we’ve found the best Airbnbs on the Sunshine Coast for your browsing pleasure. You ready?
The Cool California Vibin’ Beach Pad
Ocean views on tap, one-off pieces of furniture, when can we move in already!?
Dripping with a kind of Californian sophisticated beach vibe, we’d totally pour a stiff drink, whack a golden oldie on the turntable, and suck up that fresh salty air on the balcony of this Sunshine Beach apartment.
While you’re here: Try out Embassy XO; the gatekeepers to some of the best yum cha on the Sunshine Coast.
The Barn Stay
Hanging for a country fix? We reckon even the LEAST country-loving person will fall for The Barn. Surrounded by lush rolling hills, this 110-year-old restored dairy is what we call “a contemporary twist on something very rustic”. Tucked in the Noosa Hinterland, if you find you’re getting exhausted from farm-life, Hastings Street is only a half hour drive away.
While you’re here: Hop in the car and head to Pomona to conquer one of the best next-level hikes on the Sunshine Coast.
The Budget Weekender Cabin
If you’re workin’ for the weekend, then this sub-tropical spot could be your escape. There’s not much out here except nature, so either really really like the person you bring (if ya get what I’m sayin’) or pack a good book and some hard liquor. A cabin this cute and compact leaves nowhere to hide.
While you’re here: You do have the internet, so catch up on the best Instagrammin’ ladies on the Sunshine Coast.
The Huge Entertainer
Need somewhere that can house all of your best mates while you spend the weekend catching up? Stop the search! With an epic entertaining slash barbecue area, beds for up to 10 people, a pool, and a luxe black and white colour palette, you’re probs gonna feel like you’re living the high life in some posh resort when you stay at this amazing residence in Montville.
While you’re here: Sure, you don’t have to go anywhere but if you do decide to venture out, make it to try the best breakfasts in Caloundra.
The Coastal Backyard Studio
‘Cause sometimes you just don’t need that much space. Especially when you’re spending your staycation flitting between layin’ face down on a beach, gorging on a shitload of food, and taking a heap of selfies of your staycation to make everyone #staycationjealous (it’s a thing!). Way more than your average backyard studio, this open plan space is decked out with a freestanding bath, polished floors, and tonnes of louvers—sah Coastal! So yeah, it’s in some people’s yard but it’s totes private.
While you’re here: Do your caffeine addict lover a favour and zip to Little Boat Espresso to grab them a takeaway latte. Serving up some of the best coffee on the Sunshine Coast, you can’t go wrong.
The Glamping Experience
What? You didn’t know we have our very own glamping experience being offered on the Sunny Coast? Well, now you do. You pick any local campground on the coast or hinterland (think: beachfront at Noosa north shore or a rural site in Conondale National Park), and Pitch will “pitch” a gorgeous bell tent before you arrive, complete with a bed, floor rugs, cushions, and so much more. We feel it’s our duty to warn you: Once you glamp you won’t go back.
While you’re here: Plan your next glamping trip with our roundup of the best camping spots on the Sunshine Coast.
If white is your fave colour, and ocean vistas your favourite view, then the sleek Paperbark in Sunshine Beach is your Airbnb match. Sure, it ain’t cheap but this massive townhouse has a media room AND a private plunge pool, which we’d happily pull out the dollars for. YOLO.
While you’re here: Go check out our fave new coffee spot in Noosa, Padre.
