NEW LIFE FOR OLD MO­TEL

Now’s your last chance to book a hol­i­day in the 18-room Cot­ton Tree Beach Mo­tel.

As early as Fe­bru­ary, the two-storey mo­tel across the road from Ma­roochy­dore Beach will be de­mol­ished to make way for a 12-storey lux­ury com­plex called Rise Ma­roochy­dore

Beach af­ter de­vel­oper Saintsun pur­chased the 1821sq m prop­erty in June for $6.135 mil­lion.

Un­til then, the mo­tel will con­tinue to do a roar­ing trade with reg­u­lar trav­ellers and hol­i­day mak­ers en­joy­ing the re­laxed atmosphere of Cot­ton Tree on the Sun­shine Coast.

It is the peace and quiet of this Ma­roochy­dore neigh­bour­hood that caught the at­ten­tion of Saintsun co-di­rec­tor Stella Sun when she was look­ing for an­other patch of the Sun­shine Coast to de­velop.

“From the very be­gin­ning I looked for a site with ocean views, that is our tar­get,’’ Ms Sun said. “I love the Sun­shine Coast, it is so peace­ful and has nat­u­ral beauty.

“I don’t go to the Gold Coast, we like quiet and peace­ful.”

Aqua View Apart­ments and builds mod­ern, sim­ple and el­e­gant lux­ury apart­ments. Fif­teen of the 48 apart­ments at Rise Ma­roochy­dore Beach sold in the first week­end on the mar­ket.

When all apart­ments are sold, Saintsun will be­gin the 18-month con­struc­tion phase.

Res­i­dents on lev­els three to 12 will have view of the coast­line from Mud­jimba Is­land to Point Cartwright, and spy the coastal cot­ton trees for which this part of the Sun­shine Coast is named.

Real es­tate group Col­liers In­ter­na­tional will take the apart­ments to mar­ket, with pur­chase prices be­tween $1 mil­lion and $3 mil­lion.
