Noosa Apartments...not the average Aussie Holiday Shack
THE notion of renting a coastal shack in Australia is about as old as holidaying itself. There's something satisfyingly simple about a cottage by bay or beach, sand swept straight out the door, a holiday menu limited to barbies, fish and chips and, in my youth at least, Pipeline Petes and Gaytimes from the corner store, actually paid for with no protest by parents who magically forgot about dental matters, at least until the end of the summer school break.
These days, the shack is an endangered species but the concept of occupying other people's houses at holiday time is still big business. Not just summer holidays, either: the trend is to divide time away across the year, with long weekends and Easter as busy as the traditional December and January hiatus.
Noosa is not a shack kind of place. This Sunshine Coast hot spot is far too fashionable for that: what the holiday-maker gets is an apartment or sleek modern house (little real estate here is older than a few decades), in most cases as spacious and well-equipped as home but with much better views and, usually, superior weather (July is the coolest month, with daytime maximum temperature of 20C).
..................................Some are large and showy homes, with pools and heated spas, that look freshly uplifted from Belle or Vogue Living magazines -- and then I spot it. The Beach Shack at Sunshine Beach, described (unusually, in the world of real estate) as "modest". With three bedrooms and a low-season nightly tariff of $200, the price is unpretentious, too. Ah, next time.
.........................Noosa is a small thriving up-market tourist village with a coved beach and lots of great sand and surf along the Back beach looking out over some magnificent scenery.
A bus takes you there from Brisbane Airport..and its certainly worht a look at for the Golden life style of the Rich and Aspiring. The prices of items in the shops tell you about Noosa.Tags: Noosa, Australian, Australia, Beaches, Queensland, Holidays, vacations
