AGGIE’S OASIS HOLIDAY HOME – WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE ACCOMMODATION SUNSHINE COAST

UPDATE – Unfortunately this property is no longer available for holiday rentals.

Walking into the accessible house, which is Aggie’s Oasis, there’s no doubt it’s been established by someone with a true understanding of what makes a holiday stress-free for guests with a disability. I spoke with the owner, Maureen, prior to my visit and she explained how Aggie’s became a holiday rental after their difficulties finding suitable holiday accommodation for their daughter with a disability. The result of this frustration is a holiday house which not only allows their family to have a great holiday, but a place which other people can rent and enjoy. If you’re looking for an accessible holiday home on the Sunshine Coast, this is a house which ticks the accessibility boxes.

Aggie’s is a four-bedroom house which can sleep 8 guests.

Its spacious open plan design gives guests easy wheelchair access from the front door through to the main lounge room and kitchen. The kitchen is well equipped with a full-size fridge, dishwasher, oven and microwave. The microwave is at a height difficult for a wheelchair user but perhaps this could be negotiated with the owners if needed at a lower height.

ACCESSIBLE ROOM – BEDROOM 4

Three bedrooms within the house are standard size rooms. The fourth bedroom is an accessible bedroom which has been well designed. The owners had the assistance of an occupational therapist when modifying Aggie’s Oasis. This shows in the detail of the queen bedded accessible room. It’s equipped with an innerspring mattress inside the Murphy Wall Bed which folds away to accommodate a hospital bed should it be required.

OUTDOOR LIVING AT AGGIE’S OASIS

Now, while I love the indoor features, the pool and outdoor living area is what sets this property apart from other accessible accommodation.

A pool seat sits beside the pool making it easy for a guest to transfer from a wheelchair to the seat and then lower into the water. This is absolutely perfect for the Sunshine Coast’s warm summers. In fact, the day I visited was a balmy 30 degree winter’s day. Arriving in my Sydney threads of jeans, long boots and winter shirt, I felt inclined to jump in clothes and all!

Ramping ensures easy access

Ramping at the front and back doors of the property ensures easy access to and from the house.

An outdoor setting, large barbecue and day bed lounge will lure guests outside to make the most of the lovely landscaped gardens.

ADDITIONAL ACCESSIBLE FEATURES

Attention to detail is knowing what guests with a disability will need and the owners of Aggie’s understand what makes a relaxing holiday.

Equipment available for use at Aggie’s Oasis

There’s a shower chair, commode, foot stool and hoist with slings available at the house.

Although I’d like to think all the usual chores stay at home when I’m on holiday, washing seems to follow me wherever I go.  Therefore it’s fabulous to have an internal laundry available in the house.

Aggie’s Oasis provides many families with a wonderful wheelchair accessible holiday every year. Please note the front door and fourth bedroom have widened doors. The doors into the additional bedrooms are standard size. The accessible room, 2nd and 3rd bedrooms are joined together by a hallway which is also standard size.

Aggie’s is indeed an oasis and I’m so pleased I could squeeze a visit into my jam-packed schedule while visiting the Sunshine Coast.

CAR HIRE

If you need an accessible vehicle to use while staying on the Sunshine Coast, our friends at Nationwide Mobility Vehicles may be able to help you. They have a range of vehicles available from a Mazda 2 Flashe Cab to a Hyundai Imax.

You can read more about the service they offer on their website.

NEARBY

Aggie’s Oasis is located in a quiet cul-de-sac in the small town of Tewantin. Tewantin is a small village on the Noosa River and is what I consider, Noosa’s quieter neighbour. Only a street away from Aggie’s Oasis there is a strip of shops including a bakery, bottle shop and IGA Supermarket. In the town of Tewantin there’s a range of restaurants, cafes and a large supermarket.

Paved walking paths surround the house and provide wheelchair access alongside the creek where water birds and abundant wildlife play.

Staying at Aggie’s you have the best of both worlds, a quiet area to stay but you’re also close enough to Noosa to enjoy the shopping and beach life.

121Care is a support service on the Sunshine Coast which provides trained and experienced carers to meet the individual care needs of Aggie’s guests. 121Care will plan the care required with the guest and their family (if appropriate) prior to arrival (at an additional cost).

    • Hi Jenny,

      If you click through to the link in the blog post it will give you the rates and you can contact the owners. The link is just about the NEARBY paragraph. Rates change so I prefer people check the website.

  2. Hi, I just called the lovely lady who owns Aggies oasis who told me that they have closed it down as it was costing them too much money to keep it open, and they were not getting enough guests to make it viable
