Locate us at Sunbird Chase, Parrearra (aka Buddina, Kawana, Minyama, Mooloolaba, Sunshine Coast), South East Queensland, Australia, 4575. Guest AccessThe unit is self contained. Laundry facilities can be arranged for long stay guests, or provided as a service for a nominal fee. Interaction with GuestsText interactions have worked best for most of our guests, particularly out of normal business hours. No question is too silly nor trivial for our attention. Some guests have stayed with almost no contact to enjoy seclusion and privacy. Others have embraced opportunities with Tony and become an integral part of our family and planned activities. The NeighborhoodWe are centrally located in a holiday destination blessed with wilderness, clean rivers, canals and surf beaches with a mix of styles for dining, shopping and being active or totally chilled. We are walking distance from most features that makes the Sunshine Coast what it is. The loop road that is Sunbird Chase secludes our canal location from rush hour traffic and seasonal disruptions to the extent that walking to the shops is quicker and less hassle than finding a car park during rush hours and peak seasons. We are surrounded by an environment and lifestyle that we have found difficult to find in all of our Australian and international travels. Our family of eastern water dragons are now many generations from eggs that Tony hatched in our roof space. As an unlikely group of two humans, three dogs, a hairless cat and wary dragons, we share our place in paradise with guests and neighbours who chose to be here for similar reasons. Getting AroundThe Sunshine Coast is best experienced using private cars or by bicycle. It does not have a fast paced public transport system although we are 100m from a major transportation hub at Kawana Shopping World. With planning it is possible to go north, south and west to the hinterlands using bus, train and transfer services. Airport bus transfers to/from Brisbane take 90 minutes or less for approximately AUS$50 per person per trip. Some provide a door to door service. Or there are pick up and drop off areas in Kawana and Mooloolaba. The Sunshine Coast Airport is 15-20 minutes by car and transfers can be arranged with Tony on a cost recovery basis. Other Things to NoteThere are two Chinese crested hairless dogs, a miniature poodle and a hairless sphynx cat at Sunbird Chase who have welcomed guests with barking and measured suspicion. Without exception, guests are welcomed to their home. We caution all guests that the dogs be given an opportunity to sniff and introduce themselves at the inner courtyard gate before moving into the guest wing. The largest of our rescued dogs,Hera, was mistreated by a previous owner[s]. She often compensates her fear of strangers, particularly men, with an aggressive "welcome". But she is the dog that will seek your approval and affection if you don't mind a dog with naked skin. If you are fearful of dogs or mistrusting in any way, please ask that we introduce you to Hera, Errol [Flynn] and Mikee. Frequently our guests must let themselves into the guest wing and meet our "family" because Irene and Tony have been unavailable for scheduled arrivals. Your arrival is important to us. We can make arrangements based on text, email and telephone knowing that schedules can change without notice.
