Why not move to marcoola?

"Beautiful beaches"

Marcoola has some of the most beautiful beaches on the coast, and they are not as crowded as the ones at Moolooaba, and Coolum. It's a gorgeous spot. There are resorts all along David Low way. Resort living is a sweet lifestyle with morning and afternoon walks along the beach.

Marcoola is a great spot the only downside is that it's close to the airport, and you can often hear the planes landing and taking off, but none of the locals really mind.

There are some local shops, including The Candoo Cafe, they make some great pizza's, and Coolum Body Balance does great remedial massage therapy. There's a great Chinese restaurant there too.

"1.5 years in paradise"

For 1.5 years my dream of living a 5 minute walk from spectacular coastline was a reality. I had often wondered if you would eventually take for granted and even tire of the 180 degree views of everchanging surf and cloud formations, the long walks on clean shell strewn sand, the many kilometers of bike-paths, the easy reach of beaches that have different wave formations depending upon the prevailing wind direction - all round, the clean, healthy living that is offered by living next door to one of the most spectacular and relaxing natural wonders of the world. Well, the answer is that I did not take it for granted. It is only due to family commitments that I have temporarilly moved back to Brisbane. I will be return to Marcoola. I highly recommend the quiet, peaceful, healthy living that Marcoola offers to anyone who values such rare luxuries. Enjoy!

Marcoola is a great place it is relaxed beach community with no passing traffic, great coffee shops nearby. It also has two championship golf courses, where you can use facilities, as well as beaches that are not crowded. Shops are not too far away. 5 Klm to coolum & a short drive to Mudjimba or Maroochy.

"Marcoola - Great beachside town close to all amenities."

Marcoola is between Maroochydore and Coolum of the Sunshine Coast. Marcoola is a small coastal town with much to offer. The beach is great and surfing, sea kayaking etc are all popular. The nearby national parks offer good views and walking experience. All accommodation in Marcoola is virtually on the beach with International style motels and resorts offering all the comforts. There are a great number of apartments in the area and can be purchased for a fair price although prices have risen considerably in the past few years. Close to Maroochydore, Marcoola is only minutes from major shops and other facilities.
