Hotel Review: Estoril on Moffat, Sunshine Coast, Queensland


Just one hour’s drive north of Brisbane lies a charming and beautiful place called Moffat Beach. A hidden jewel of the sunshine coast, this small town by the shore has a pleasant atmosphere which is enhanced by the friendly and welcoming locals. During our visit to Moffat Beach, we were lucky enough to stay with just such people, Peter and Karen Hebbe. This lovely couple host a beautiful resort called ‘Estoril on Moffat’. The Estoril is situated in a quiet cul de sac overlooking the beach and a 10 acre park with native tree’s and plants. The Estoril houses 18 beautiful self contained apartments, a swimming pool with a spa and waterfall, picnic area, and game room. You may want to spend your entire vacation enjoying this small piece of paradise, but there is a lot more to this small community.

Start your day by walking through the 10 acre park, which is directly across the street. It boasts a jungle of beautiful flora. Once through the park walk out onto the golden beach, where you can choose to swim or stroll.

Worked up an appetite? You won’t have to venture to far. Enjoy a delicious meal at one of the many cafes by the sea. When you get back to the Estoril, have a relaxing drink on the balcony and watch the sun set. The comforts you will find in this very special resort will make you question the thought of ever leaving the tranquility of this safe haven.

We stayed with Peter and Karen for several days and didn’t look forward to leaving. The units were cooled by the ocean, fully equipped, stylish, quiet and received touches of quality and caring from the hands of Peter and his lovely wife, Karen. True professionals and tender human beings. I loved this place. Check it out! It’s a little off the beaten track, but that’s what makes it unique and peaceful.
