For our first Christmas as a married couple, AK and I decided to rent a holiday house at the Sunshine Coast so we could spend time with both our families. Our prerequisites included space for Mia, room for 10-12 people and good outdoor space for Christmas lunch. After much searching, we came across Foxleigh house at Eumundi. The holiday house was more than we could have hoped for and we had a fantastic week relaxing, swimming, reading, eating, drinking, listening to music, sitting by the fire and playing lots of table tennis. At first I was quite stressed about the blending of families and friends, but by the second day I was able to sit back and enjoy a wonderful study in anthropology. For anyone thinking of a big family getaway, I recommend both the idea and this particular house.
