Love the new Hastings Street hair salon. It's so exciting to have such a beautiful hairdressing space in Noosa. And of course I love my cut and colour as much as always. I've never had so many compliments on my hair since you started styling it. My hair has never looked so shiny and glossy before. Thank you Andy!

Thank you so much for making our big move easy. From your first inspection with advice on packing and logistics, through to moving day when your unflappable removal guys shifted everything, we knew we were in safe hands. Highly recommended! Thank you again for taking care of us and taking the stress out of moving house.

The coworking space is a great place to hang out and meet local business people and entrepreneurs. The owners Steve and Anne are both a fantastic source of local business information and tips and totally dedicated to making sure their Noosa Boardroom clients succeed. If you're struggling to grow your business or feeling unproductive working alone this is the perfect solution.

Kristin treated me for a sore back, neck and shoulders. Before we started she pointed out some important problems with my posture and how I can work on correcting that. The course of three treatments was super relaxing with immediate results that continued to improve over the three week period. I'd never heard of Bowen treatment before but now I've experienced it I've been recommending it to everyone and will definitely be back to get more help from Kristin's healing hands when needed!
