When invited to a family function in Buderim, I decided to look at a Band B. We have stayed in some in Europe, but not here in our home, Australia. I say that the prices are mid range. Our room with a light breakfast was $195, but the standard of the room was luxury. The bed was great, the air... More

Loved this b&b. Stayed in the Silverbirch room which was lovely. Jackie is really awesome and Joe was great with check in. The location was close to Moolooaba and Buderim. Would stay here again and highly recommend it

We were disappointed that we couldn't stay longer. The rooms are well appointed, the location is beautiful and breakfast overlooking Maroochydore was simple but high quality. In a word it was perfect and we'll definitely be back.

We stayed at Arabella as family were competing in the Half Ironman in Mooloolaba. Being a little over generic hotels, we thought it better to be in something a little classier. Arabella did not disappoint....the room was sumptuous and reminded us of some gorgeous BandB's we had stayed in Europe and the UK, but not seen the like of here.(Not... More
