Papillon Coolum
Reviewed July 19, 2008

Papillon was an unexpected surprise. The quality of the accommodation is absolutely five star. The tranquility and peace, the ocean views, the natural setting--it was a wonderful step up from several prior Coolum visits. The hosts, Vicky and Paul, welcomed me like family, and that feels great after long international flights. I write software for a living, and what Vicky went through to have wireless internet and phone SIMs for me is something I've not encountered anywhere. She and Paul purchased equipment for me. They spent hours on hold with Optus on my behalf. In terms of service, they did everything they could to make my stay at Papillon as productive and as enjoyable as possible. I left Papillon after coming to know Paul and Vicky as those rare special friends you meet along the way in life's journey. How do you put a value on that kind of experience? Papillon is in Point Arkwright, a rugged and spectacular coastal area walking distance from Coolum. Papillon is a very short walk to a 4 km combination of coastal bush track, running and biking track, boardwalk, and spectacular coast and beaches. The privacy at Papillon was amazing and the natural setting a pleasure for the Soul. I understand why Aussies come to the Sunshine Coast. Those who live in this part of Australia seem to know how fortunate they are. And that happiness shows, and fortunately, it is contagious. Check out Paul and Vicky and spend some time at Papillon. You may have a hard time leaving.
