Brought my elderly parents for a one night stay at Marian's having been fortunate to have secured the unit just two days before we were due to arrive! I was initially a little apprehensive over the unpaved road leading up to the place and how my conservative parents who had up till now only stayed in hotels would react to staying at a pseudo bed and breakfast but we were all quickly won over by the warm welcome from Sophie, the resident cocker spaniel and the view. Rest assured that the photos on the website are a true reflection of what will greet you upon your arrival. The hot tub was an added bonus. The self-contained unit was perfect for the three of us as we were able to request to have the second bedroom opened up so that no one would be stuck on the sofa bed. Although it had been clearly advertised as such, Ian hand-delivered a lovely breadbasket filled with home-made baked goods. We will definitely be ordering one of Mary's custom cakes for our next stay. And as I mentioned already, don't forget to look up at the night sky while you're there. Even my stargazing tour in NZ paled in comparison to the blanket of stars that was free for all to enjoy at Marian's. The Milky Way and two shooting stars were my takeaways from this short but brilliant stay on the Sunshine Coast. The only thing lacking was my precious pup. We will definitely be back next year!
A weekend stay on the sunshine coast is always a great thing to do. Having found a superb location hosted by warm, friendly and caring hosts. We will return as often as we can. The accommodation was exceptional. The owners have paid tremendous attention to detail and maintain a high level of cleanliness and decor.
We chose this place because it is pet friendly. Our two dogs were in heaven. The beach access was great and the private patio even better.
Mary's morning baked goodies for us and our fur babies were delightful.
Can't say enough to our friends. Don't hesitate, just book it.

My husband and I stayed at Marian's on the Coast to celebrate our one year anniversary and Mary and Ian made it so special! The location is superb! It is tucked away and very private, with access to a rocky beach! We stayed for two nights, and each morning we woke to an amazingly delicious breakfast that Mary had made for us!
They were so sweet about it being our anniversary, and Mary helped prepare a lovely romantic picnic for me and my husband to take to the beach! They also recommended great places to go eat and sights to see! Even though the weather was pretty horrible the weekend we were there, there would be nothing I'd change! It is a super dog friendly place in and we'll definitely be back!
This hidden jewel is not even 10 min away from the Langdale ferry terminal !! Incredible picturesque views of the mountains from your PERSONAL hottub !! Full kitchenette and access to the BBQ allows you to enjoy the most of this location while sitting on the deck overlooking the water at your feet. The baking that comes every morning was great !! The hosts are friendly and available for you if you wish. Total feeling of "getting away from it all". This side of the Sunshine Coast is the calmer side, so get out their canoe and go enjoy floating around in the water !! We shall return and recommend to our friends.

My husband and I took our 5 month old baby and our 2 year old Labrador Retriever to stay for a long weekend away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
It was perfect. The accommodation is full of thoughtful touches, like the very plush hot tub robes and full kitchen to the little BBQ and private hot tub. You can tell a lot of thought went into the decor and it's very comfortable. There were even home made dog biscuits and cookies waiting for us when we arrived. The breakfast each day was very good and the cinnamon buns were the best we've ever had.
There's a path right outside your door down to the beach and our water dog loved it. The hot tub overlooks Howe Sound and it's a beautiful sight.
It is far enough out of Gibsons to make you feel like you are getting away but not so far as to be inconvenient.
I would recommend this B&B to anyone who wants a little relaxation time or romance. Mary and Ian are great hosts and they sure know what they are doing!
