Truly eclectic and exquisite decor made this a unique stay for my friend and I. A lovely peaceful setting and a short drive to the famous Sunshine Coast beaches. Our host Joe, was attentive without being intrusive. A wonderful place to visit and such a short hop from Brisbane, it will definitely be one I do again soon. Many thanks!

There is a welcoming home atmosphere from your arrival, during your stay and as your host waves goodbye. I stayed in the Tea Tree Suite, beautifully decorated and well appointed with a private deck entrance and a luxury spa in the spacious ensuite. I was impressed with the energising spa salts & large bathroom linens that could be warmed on... More

Sometimes you book a place and when you arrive it's just not as good as you expected it to be. This definitely wasn't the case here. We had a lovely room (Tea Tree) complete with its own area of deck with scenic views. It's a short drive from Mooloolaba which means it's quiet and a perfect retreat to relax in.... More

We chose to stay at Arabella Guesthouse principally as it is located away from the busy touristy coast. We were not disappointed with the delightful Pandanus Room providing a comfortable experience with views through to the sea. The reception from the hosts was warm and friendly. We would have no hesitation in choosing to stay in the future.

We stayed for two nights in October. Our room was under the house and was clean and well appointed with a small balcony with sweeping views towards the Coast. The bathroom was OK but we felt it was a bit tight and quite dark. Breakfast for us was a big disappointment. We knew it was continental, but for the price... More

Quality accommodation with luxury fittings and nice quiet areas for some peace and quiet. The continental breakfast included lots of fresh fruit and local products. The welcome from the staff and owners was very friendly. Definite recommend for a peaceful, relaxing stay.

Luxurious accommodation and very friendly and accommodating owners. We had a fantastic view all the way out to the ocean. Would highly recommend staying in this B&B. Breakfast was fresh and delicious also and it is a short drive to the beach.

We picked the best room via checking out on the internet and were very pleased with the choice. True luxury accommodation with a lovely en suite and spa bath. However the major clincher for giving them a great rating is the extra effort they all made, right through to the trouble of sending a thank you email after we left.... More

After a problem with a reservation Michael the host from Arabella bent over backwards to accommodate us. He was at the property to meet and greet us and made us feel very welcome. The property has a wonderful location with beautiful views from the treetops to the ocean. The common area is beautifully furnished and very comfortable with a fireplace.... More
