During this time, they have been an integral part of the village forming long-term relationships with many residents, business owners, holidaymakers, and property owners; as the longest serving business in Sunshine Beach, they have a connection with the people and the surrounds that is second to none.

Offering a boutique service that covers sales and property management of both permanent rentals and holiday rentals; and a highly experienced, dedicated team of customer-service property professionals who live locally, and all share a passion for the beachside lifestyle Sunshine Beach offers its residents, as well as the prolific capital growth opportunities it provides for property owners.

Whilst they pride themselves on good old-fashioned service, the team also embrace innovative technology and utilise the latest digital platforms to market properties and are continually keeping updated with this ever-evolving space to ensure their clients receive maximum exposure.

In 2024 Pip and the team relocated into to a stylish new premises in Duke Street, which has elevated the business to the next level, injecting a renewed energy and vigour that has even further anchored them into their community.  They could not be more excited about the future.

Pip Covell

Principal Pip Covell started her sales career in 1988 at Sunshine Beach Real Estate and loved it so much she took over the business in 1999…and hasn’t looked back, only forward.

As a Sunshine Beach local herself there are not many locals that Pip doesn’t know either personally or have dealt with professionally over the years.  Pip has a strong connection to the community; she is invested in it in every sense, a passionate advocate for the lifestyle on offer and the opportunity for exceptional capital growth, which has been consistently impressive over time.

Pip oversees a team of highly trained property professionals who share her ethos, love of the region, and dedication to delivering a high-end boutique level of customer service.  From sales through to property management, Pip has hand-picked a team of likeminded individuals whom she works and collaborates with to protect and maintain the exemplary reputation that Sunshine Beach Real Estate has established in its 40 plus years servicing this community.
