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

My husband and I had a rare night away from our little one and wanted to make it a secluded, luxurious and romantic break. Arabella's was absolutely perfect! We were greeted by host Michael who made us feel instantly at home. The entire house is exquisitely designed to feel luxurious and comfortable. Each room is decorated beautifully (we got to... More

Returned for a three night stay in the beautiful Teatree Room. The furnishings were superb; the room was private and quiet, and the roaring fire in the lounge was a pleasure to come home to in the evening and to read beside. Michael, Joe and Jackie were helpful, considerate and caring and extremely accommodating. The room, bathroom and shared lounge,... More

We stayed for 2 nights and could not fault one thing. The decor was just beautiful. the views spectacular. Before we arrived we had a courtesy call from Joe (the owner). We arrived late afternoon and were treated and made to feel at home from the moment we entered the Guesthouse. The rooms are large and private, the ensuite's modern... More

We stayed 1 night at Arabella Guesthouse whilst attending a christmas function in the area, our only problem was 1 night was not long enough. Check in was smooth and we were offered a free upgrade to a larger room with a deck, which we took although all the rooms looked very comfortable. The common areas were beautifully decorated and...

What a great find, from being met on arrival by the owner who is friendliness personified, the whole experience was fantastic. We had both rooms on the lower level as we travelled with our grown up daughters. The rooms were spotless and very comfortable, breakfast was adequate and tasty, couldn't fault.

The guest house is easy to find, well signed. I had a late arrival, but Joe made sure that I had no problems finding the Silverbirch Suite after my arrival. I only stayed the one night on a business trip to Buderim, but would have been very happy to have stayed longer in this top rate guest house. The suite... More

An absolute Gem - “Our New Favourite Place on Earth” - Easy to Find & Access. "Outstanding" location, especially for us, as it is located not far from The Sunshine Coast Private Hospital & Specialist Rooms, Buderim Qld 4556.

Pouring rain and arrived at this delightful guesthouse on the main road in Buderim. Jo, the owner met us then discreetly left us to settle in. Our room was very nice, the best and most comfortable bed ever apart from my own (and I have slept in many) and the decor was subtle and cosy. The tv was hidden behind... More
