History, Charm, Location!
20 Maher Terrace SUNSHINE BEACH QLD 4567
This iconic Sunshine Beach home, circa 1957, was lovingly built by World War I pilot Chas Williams, with each individual block handmade…a labour of love, and this rock-solid sturdy home is a shining example of the charm and character of its era; he built this as his retirement home and he was a pioneering local resident, close friends with many original Sunshine families.
Tastefully renovated with modern comforts, whilst retaining the integrity of its vintage and its wonderful warmth and charisma…Casa Blanca is one of the very few original homes in this pocket of Sunshine Beach, surrounded by multi-million dollar contemporary homes.
The home itself on a lush leafy 527m2 block tucked away at the end of blue-chip Maher Terrace; is complete with two bedrooms on the upper level, new kitchen, north-east facing timber deck with ocean glimpses, front patio with plantation shutters for privacy, a self-contained studio downstairs, two driveways including side access to rear, and covered tandem parking for two vehicles. The top level of the home generates an attractive income via Airbnb.
With absolutely delightful street-appeal, inside the home has a very coastal, beachy ambience with infusions of Morocco in its décor which blend in perfectly with the home’s design, location, and soul. Everything works in synchronicity to create something truly special.
Freshly painted inside; features include reverse cycle air-conditioning in both upstairs bedrooms, ceiling fans, floating timber floor, granite benches in kitchen, stainless steel oven, Bosch dishwasher, features lighting, decorative wrought iron, hopper windows, skillion roof (recently replaced), and storage under.
With a prized north-east aspect, there are continual gentle sea breezes circulating throughout the home, and you can hear and sea the ocean. Current owner has council-approved plans available to build an additional storey to further maximise aspect and sea-views (see Agent).
Located just 250 metres to the beach – a flat walk, and 700 metres to the surf club and village amenities including fabulous boutique dining; this is a dress circle beachside pocket…where the rainforest literally meets the sea. You can walk everywhere from here, effortlessly; plus, just a short stroll to the dog beach, it’s an unbeatable location.
There really is nothing like this on the market in Sunshine Beach; homes of this vintage along beachside strips are extremely rare. Get ready to be thoroughly charmed…VIEW FLOORPLAN SALES ENQUIRY
LET’S TALK... Caitlyn McConnell

Caitlyn's time in the sales team has showcased her commitment to a high standard of service, negotiating skills and, most importantly, enjoyment of the demanding world of Real Estate. People love working with Caitlyn because of her calm nature and positive attitude that allows her to get results with minimal fuss.
They say it’s not ‘what you know, but who you know’; however, in Pip Covell’s case, it’s both…plus a lot of hard work and dedication thrown in. As Principal of Sunshine Beach Real Estate for 20 years, after 10 years working as an Agent there are not many Sunshine Beach locals that Pip doesn’t either personally know or had some type of association with over the years. She has grown the property management side of the business since purchasing 20 years ago, particularly in the holiday rentals area; she employs a team of local people who share her commitment and ethos to delivering a boutique high-end service to their clients, and collectively have unsurpassed local knowledge. Pip’s passion for the Arts has never left her, and Sunshine Beach Real Estate sponsor the annual Sunshine Beach High School Arts Extravaganza, and she is patron of the “Noosa Alive” festival. As a long-term resident and business owner, Pip is heavily invested in the Sunshine Beach community, and is connected with many of its local groups, and regularly attends community events. In Pip’s own words, “I live here, I work here, I play here.”
