My partner and I stayed at Takahashi Gardens at the end of July. It was our first visit to The Sunshine Coast and as there were so many great locations to choose from it was hard to decide. Even before we arrived Elaine made every effort to make sure we had lots of info to get us started with great...

Stayed for the weekend. Really enjoyed our stay. Elaine is super. She made us feel so welcome. She even bought me a birthday cake when she heard it was my birthday. Loved our room. King size bed, private hot tub with a view, balcony. All the extra touches, Cookies, popcorn, special coffees. We will definitely stay there again. Hopefully soon.

Amazing way to spend our 10th Wedding Anniversary. We stayed in the cottage and enjoyed every minute of it. From siting together on the deck reading, evenings in the hot tub enjoying the peaceful setting to the couples massage, every minute was bliss. Elaine took good care of us and the place had everything we needed and beautifully decorated. Especially...

Exquisite suites and cottages where no detail has been overlooked and a hostess who is completely concerned with her guests' comfort. Lovely Japanese themed property, each suite with its own (very) private hot tub, fully equipped kitchen and all amenities. Lovely waterfront views. One relaxes instantly upon arrival and is reluctant to leave.

Stayed at Takahashi for two days July 2013. Was definitely the most relaxing peaceful two days of my life. Elaine went out of her way to make sure my stay was perfect in every way. The massage on the deck of the cottage in the evening was perfection. Will definitely return and bring friends.

Right from the outset, we were greeted with exceptional service and Elaine's signature hospitality. She is the most accommodating guest we have ever met and we have traveled lots. As far as the rooms go, we were blown away. The website does not capture the beauty of the place and the comfort of the rooms. The rooms are very modern...

We just returned home from our 3 night visit to Takahashi Gardens. We travel extensively and have never stayed in an accommodation that has had absolutely everything. Elaine is the best hostess ever and if you find you are needing something, she immediately supplies it. The place is spotless and the views are out of this world. We will definitely...

I stayed for one week in the cottage but also got to view the Yama Suite, which a colleague had booked. Both are beautifully appointed, extremely comfortable and have stunning views of the inlet, access to the waterfront deck and private hot tubs. Elaine is a wonderful host and her attention to detail is seen throughout each aspect of the...

This retreat is a perfect place for peace and relaxation. Both the cottage and the suites are luxuriously equipped with elegant Japanese decor, comfortable beds with fantastic linens, soft towels, robes and slippers, binoculars, handmade soaps and thoughtful touches like a Keurig coffee machine and candles. The tv has heaps of channels and there is a dvd library to borrow...

Elaine was there to greet us when we arrived and quickly showed us how everything worked. She was super friendly and the place is very clean and offers wonderful views. The bed was very comfortable and the hot tub was an added treat after a long day. I would recommend Takahashi Gardens to everyone!
