One of the most amazing places we have ever stayed at. Victorian elegance and charm at its best. Ambient & spacious bedroom and bathroom with private balcony overlooking the beautifully landscaped grounds & river. Plush hallways and other cosy sitting areas provide many options to relax and relish the experience whilst enjoying the coffee, tea, pastries and fudge supplied in abundance. The included breakfast was scrumptious, ample and served with class. Phil and Merryl were the consummate hosts and couldn't have done more to make our stay so enjoyable. We can't recommend Bli Bli House enough and will definitely stay for longer next time!!

Quiet and relaxing overlooking garden and creek, yet a central location for Sunshine Coast tourist attractions. The house is Victorian elegance with many special finishing touches including breakfast delivered. Parking is easy, just outside the front door.

This trip is for me and my husband to spend quality time and for myself to get recharged from busy work. Bli Bli House ticked every box in my mind: friendly owners and considerate services, a feel of Victorian elegance and well maintained amenities... To be honest, even exceeded my expectations. I have been to countries including Britain and Greece, so with experience staying at different B&B, I would say that Bli Bli is the best I have ever seen in every aspects. Highly recommend and I wish that we will be back again. Thank you Phil and Merryl!

Honestly, this place is just amazing. Why? First of all, it is beautiful. The rooms are amazing, the lounges are amazing and the halls are decorated so well. There are snacks available to get anytime. The owners are very thoughtful and have provided entertainment such as a projector, pool table, movies. If you get the balcony room you have a great view of the creek. Just look at the photos I have uploaded and you will fall in love with the interior design. My only regret was not staying longer. Oh and the family that run this place are so friendly! The breakfast here was just delicious. Honestly, just stay here and you will absolutely love it!
