Description from the owner
"Carramar" is a wonderful beach house set over two levels and sleeps seven people comfortably in three bedrooms, with each one facing the ocean.

Upon entering the property there is a twin bedroom and a queen bedroom with a single roll-a-way bed both on the ground level. A large shared verandah has steps leading down to the generous sized fenced back yard. A good sized bathroom (with bath/shower, two hand basins and a toilet) and ...Read more

Carramar @ Marcus, Sunshine Coast - Pet Friendly
Marcus Beach, Queensland, Australia
Additional Location Information
Marcus Beach is all about relaxing. Everything is focused around the beach and the ocean and if you have children and/or dogs, then playing on the beach with them is a daily occurrence.
There is a small park at the entrance to Marcus Beach, which has community BBQ facilities and is a great place to meet up with other families who are holidaying in the area. There is a large car park and a shower (for both humans and dogs) near the pathway leading to the beach. Water bowls are provided around the park for dogs as are ‘poop’ bags and bins.
There are NO Surf Life Savers at Marcus Beach and the nearest area for ‘Between the Flags’ safe swimming is at Peregian Beach, which is a 5-minute drive south. Marcus Beach is, however, a wonderful beach with a huge expanse of soft sand and views north to Sunshine Beach and south to Point Arkwright and beyond to Mooloolaba.
The ocean’s water temperatures range from a pleasant 19˚C in winter to around 25˚C in summer.
There are no shops at Marcus Beach, which is why it is so handy having Peregian Beach nearby. Here there are plenty of cafés and restaurants to suit all taste buds as well as many shops providing fresh fruit, vegetables, bread and meat for those who prefer to self cater. There are a number of boutiques here too as well as a post office and ATM's for quick banking. And you are certain to pick up a bargain at the local market, held each Sunday fortnight on Kingfisher Drive, just in front of the beach.
Marcus Beach is a superb gateway to other hinterland villages such as Montville and Maleny and the Glass House Mountains Range; and beach resort towns such as Coolum Beach, Castaways Beach, Sunrise Beach, Sunshine Beach, Noosa and of course the fabulous Noosa National Park. If you have never walked around this amazing coastline on the cemented pathway, then you really should try and find the time to do so! Check the local guides as to when is the best time to see dolphins and whales, as they swim past searching for warmer climates.
Golf courses and Spa Wellness Centers are everywhere around the Sunshine Coast and have become a way of life for most residents. For those that fancy being a bit more active there are ample places to hire boats, surf boards, jet skis and fishing equipment and around Noosa you can learn how to surf and sail. Fishing trips can be fully organised and take you out onto the ocean or you can hire a small boat and take yourself out on the Noosa River.
For a good day out with the kids, why not take them to the late Crocodile Hunter, Steve "Crikey" Irwin's famous Australia Zoo and get them involved with some native Australian animals. Here they can feed parakeets and kangaroos and cuddle a koala as well as see the crocodiles up close during the show.
Public buses run up and down the coast road and taxis are readily available too but the best way to discover the Sunshine Coast is to have your own car and get off the beaten track, as there is just so much to discover around this wonderful area of Australia.
