    We go see my mum and sisters on Xmas eve for a seafood dinner. Everyone brings something and we alternate between all our houses each year.

    Xmas day is lunch with DH family, (usually at the IL's) again person hosting does meat and veg. Everyone else brings salads, desserts and starters.

    We also do Boxing Day lunch with my extended family again alternating at a different house each year. Same as Xmas day, host does meat. Everyone else fills in the blanks.

    We are unfortunately busy for 3 days but it is better than it used to be. (3 meals/venues in 1 day). I couldn't imagine doing all the work everyone year, once every couple of years is enough for me! You are one brave lady

    Killer Heels, below are a few places in Peregian and Sunshine Beaches (my favourite spots) but haven't stayed at them over Christmas though so don't know what prices are like then.

    We found Noosaville and the Hinterland area cheaper over Christmas. Have stayed at various units around Noosaville over the years , they are all pretty similar no stand-outs. The below cottages are lovely though.

    Also we've stayed here on Mt Tamborine over Christmas. It wasn't flash but very affordable, private and peaceful with a beautiful location and lots of space for the kids to run around and they loved the ponies.

    The retreat looks perfect! We love noosa we live on the gold coast so the sunshine coast is a good distance to feel like we are getting away but not too far driving with the children. Have emailed them an enqiry. What did you think of it when you stayed?

    The retreat is perfect for a quiet relaxed beach holiday. I love the convenience and space of beach houses or self serviced apartments with children.

    Sunshine Beach is our other favourite location and the Costa Nova, La Mer and Andari apartments are all lovely and convenient.

    I love that Peregian and Sunshine Beaches are so quiet and relaxed but only a short drive to Noosa.

    Do you know of any other cabin/cottage style accomodation in beach locations?
