My home is in a sem-rural community, just 5ks from Cooroy, which is the nearest shopping and dining vicinity. Noosa Heads is thirty minutes drive away, with several sandy beaches travelling south towards Caloundra. In five minutes you can be on the Bruce Highway and travel north to Hervey Bay, Rainbow Beach and Fraser Island or south to Brisbane and everywhere in between. I am retired from the work force and live alone, except for my faithful companion, a Staffy named Bella. She is well behaved and I keep her confined until I can determine a guest's affinity with pets. The bedroom I have available is reasonably large, containing a very comfortable queen bed and some hanging space. There is a ceiling fan for summer and an oil-filled heater for winter. The room has access to the living area of the house and has a private entry to the front veranda. Guests have their own bathroom and toilet, with a washing machine being available should they wish to use it. A private car park is located just a few steps away from the front veranda. Guests are welcome to store any food items in my refrigerator and to cook meals in my kitchen. I have plenty of crockery, glassware and cutlery for their use as well. All I ask is that they do their own washing up and clean the area in which they have been working in. I should mention here that I do not own a microwave oven but if anything needs heating up my steamer does a great job, even better I would say. Everyone is welcome to explore my small property, enjoy the garden and my living area. I have dabbled in several crafts over the years and dedicated myself to natural therapies in the form of massage and energy healing. These days I spend most of my time writing, having published several books. My language is English but I do have a little knowledge of French as well.

About the Area

My home is located five minutes from the town of Cooroy. It is a similar distance to Pomona, on the other side of the Bruce Highway and about ten minutes drive to Eumundi, which is famous for its market. Noosa Main Beach is thirty minutes away with several beaches along the David Low Way in the direction of Caloundra. There is no public transport close to my home but there is a bus and a train service to and from Cooroy. There are several restaurants and shops to suit every taste in the Noosa Shire.

House Rules

Guests need to be aware that I am on tank water and have a waste-water system. This means being mindful of how water is used. Taking a bath is usually not a problem but please ask first as it depends on recent rainfall. Having a private waste-water system means not flushing any foreign objects in the toilet. If a guest chooses to use the kitchen to cook in, they are expected to clean up as well. Guests are invited to eat at the dining table rather than in the bedroom. Should they need to smoke it is requested they do so outside and to dispose of their butts and ash with great care. It is appreciated that guests can communicate approximate plans for leaving and returning to the home so everyone knows what to expect. Please note it is required for guests to pay in full within twenty four hours of their arrival. I also ask guests to give me at least 7 days’ notice for any cancellation, in order to receive a refund.

Smoking Rules

Your host is a non-smoker.

Smoking is not allowed.

    Simonne's house is a very peaceful and comfortable place to stay. It's located in a quiet, rural area with lots of bird life around to listen to and nice gardens surrounding the house along with a few pet chickens. Simonne is very accommodating in making sure her guests enjoy their stay and she provides good conversation while allowing guests to have their privacy. You should be aware that her lovely dog Bella lives inside the house and as would be expected this creates a bit of a smell, mainly in the lounge area though not in the bedroom at all. But Bella is well behaved and it is nice to join her and Simonne on their afternoon walk. A pleasant surprise was finding a comfy single lounge chair in the corner of the room which wasn't shown in the photos but was great to sit and relax in. The internet speed is not always consistently fast but it is handy to have it available and it is adequate for most online tasks you might want to do. The house and many of the fixtures are showing their age but it is a very pleasant place to stay and the quiet location ensures a good night's sleep.

    Simonne is a kind and helpful soul, she and her fur baby Bella made my stay very enjoyable. Simonne’s home is aging, However I loved the spacious bedroom, my own bathroom and even the use of the Kitchen and laundry! This stay was the best value for money I have found ever.
