Tell us something quirky or memorable about you, your team, your customer or your business
Bli Bli House had been operating for 6 years on a small suburban block when a developer bought the property but not the house. We loved our business so much that we moved our 160 year old house in 3 sections to a magnificent acreage beside the river. With unseasonal rain and bad weather, water destroyed a lot of the house and we had to start again with decorating, painting and refurbishing the entire place. It was quite a challenge which took us 9 months to complete. We are so pleased that we did not give up because the product we have today is something that our guests absolutely enjoy.
What’s the favourite thing you love about your business?
At Bli Bli House our passion is that every guest has the time of their lives during their stay with us. Driven by this desire we go over and above expectations to not just provide an experience but to create lasting memories that drive our guests to return again and again. Little extras like strawberries and dipping chocolate, old fashioned fudges, nespresso coffee machines and breakfasts fit for a king all set us apart. Our favourite question: “What can we do to make your stay more memorable?”
What’s the company background?
Bli Bli House is an historic building dating back to the 19th century. Originally built in Gympie, Queensland in 1874, during the gold rush era, it was transported 100 kms to the Sunshine Coast in 1975. My wife and I bought Bli Bli House in May 2001 and transformed the property into a luxury bed and breakfast and boutique event centre. We have spent 17 years creating renovating, refurbishing and developing our business. What began as a cottage at the back of a small urban block is now a 5 star, multi-suite, award winning riverside retreat on acreage in the heart of the Sunshine Coast
What’s your ultimate vision for Bli Bli House Riverside Retreat?
