Tiki glam on the Sunshine CoastCoolum Beach, Queensland

Get out your Bert Kaempfert records and dust off the safari suit, because this hideaway has more than a touch of retro glamour. Josh ‘Sinbad’ Collins and Barbara Blaze, owners of Melbourne’s LuWOW Bar, set up this holiday home on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast as their own personal tiki palace.

Decorated with rattan wallpaper, wood carvings, giant shells and more, it has three bedrooms and sleeps up to seven people. The house is set in lush rainforest – the bathroom has views of the canopy – and features a lagoon pool, grotto hot tub and a full kitchen with tiki mugs and cocktail recipes for inspiration. And it’s just a 10-minute walk to the beach.


  • Private balcony with pool views and pool access
  • Full tiki decor with giant shells, bamboo and an incredible carved canoe
  • Rock-wall bathroom
  • Fully equipped kitchen
  • Free wifi
  • Air-conditioning

From US$150 a night for up to seven people, with a three-night minimum.
