Rural beauty just outside the Sunshine Coast. Parrots and kangaroos among the flowers in the yard. Classic Queensland house on a quiet country road only a few minutes from the coast, Eumundi Market, Ginger Factory and a short drive to Australia Zoo.
20 minutes west of Noosa Heads, 120 km north of Brisbane close to MCY airport with direct flights from Syd and Melb. The Greenroom is surrounded by bush, wildlife, wetlands and walking tracks, with panoramic views from the high ridges.
This house has been our studio for the past decade. I have written a book here, and we have written and recorded a double album here and rehearsed for hundreds of hours in the front room. The house has a lovely broad front veranda where you will spend a lot of time. The morning birdsong is pretty spectacular over morning coffee. There are three double bedrooms, and a common lounge dining area. The two rooms at the rear of the house are where we live if we are in residence, which is fairly seldom since we are now on tour for the next few years, returning briefly in the mild months.

We are often away but if we are not around to gret you my sister will assist.
Otros aspectos destacables
We are on TANK WATER here. The water is sweet and soft. It is also very valuable - too valuable to waste, so please take care with your water use. It is vitally important that you don't leave taps running. Also, in WET WEATHER, the grass can become slippery. Normally, it iso to part the car at the top if the verandah, but in wet weather, please stick to the gravel drive. It is easy to become bogged.
Our place is not a luxury resort. The garden is funtional (food producing), not decorative, and we are in the midst of minor exterior rennovations and maintainance (house painting etc). Furnishings are funtional and basic. The bathroom is rustic (rust on the tin and in the bath, but it is sealed and fits with our diy aesthetic). If you are not comfortable in anything less than the palace of Versailles, please do not book my place. I offer no refund for unmet unrealistic expectations. Also note - we live beside a dirt road which in high summer, is dusty. If you are allergic to dust, pollen etc, please be warned.
Car: In wet weather, take care to stay on gravel, as grassy areas become boggy.
On foot: Bring gum boots/sensible footware for walking.
Please keep children supervised by a responsible adult at ALL times.
There is a creek at the bottom of the garden which in wet weather becomes fast flowing, and dams adjacent to the proberty.
Dogs are OK, but please, no cats. Animals attract an cleaning fee of $25. Dogs must be kept under control at all times and not allowed to wander. Dogs can be in the house, but not on the furniture or beds. If you invite guests, please ensure you outline the same rules to them.
This is a quiet place. If you do host a party, please limit your numbers - this is not a suburban street - the verges are steep in the road in. Observe wet weather caution. Please do not make loud noise after midnight.
You are legally and contractually obligated to follow house rules and are covered by Airbnb insurance. Therefore while here, you are solely responsible for the actions, injuries or breakages caused by your guests, their children and their animals, the host can be in no way held liable.
LAUNDRY. The laundry is currently being rennovated so unavailable. There is a laundromat in Cooroy town on the other side of the railway line.
WALKING AROUND THE PROPERTY
Wear sensible shoes if you are walking in the paddocks. Be alert for snakes. If you see one, stay calm, do not try to kill it! Slowly back away from it. If a gate is shut, shut it behind you. The property is steep and slippery in places, take care. Do not approach cows with new calves.
Please only smoke outside on the verandah and be responsible with butts.

Geoffrey and I are artists - I write non fiction, he is a poet and we are a songwriting team. We are also musicians and perform as Datson Hughes. We have just merged from the studio and are now on tour, gathering an audience for our music and soon we will be releasing a double album on vinyl. The house is our Greenroom Studio. It is set up to accommodate bands while recording here in paradise. It is also an artists' retreat - the reason there is no TV to distract people.
