For Little Cove Court Manager, Mark Langdon, it’s all about the people who visit Little Cove Court that get him up and going each day at work.
I love the friendships we have with guests and owners,” says Mark
“I’ve been with the company for over eight years now and have enjoyed every day helping people enjoy holidays in Noosa.
For Mark, working in Noosa, with everything we have going on here, is a dream job. It’s Noosa!
“That’s right says Mark, but after a fabulous 6 years behind the desk, I had a break from the resort and lived in Bondi in Sydney.
It was a good change, working in a cocktail bar and studying graphic design and marketing, all the while still helping to market the resort.
“I had a great time, but there was not a day when I didn’t think about Noosa and knew it was just a matter of time before I got back up there, he says.
For Mark, Noosa is more than home – it’s part of his identity. It gets in and stays in. You’ve been there, you know.
“Whenever I’m away and I just get back, the first thing I do is go for a walk to the National Park.
“I just get up there to Tea Tree or Granite Bay, or up to Hell’s Gate, and then I feel like i’m home again.
The national park and coastal walks are on the top of Mark’s list when it comes to sharing his loves with guests and helping them to get out and about.
“You may not get there every day, but you need to know it’s there for you when you can.
“I try to make sure that even if I am working hard, I never take this place for granted.
“Even if its after dark I get out and enjoy what we have here,” he says.
So what else tops the bucket list?
“I’m a long-board surfer and a lot of my mates are into surfing and surf photography, says Mark.
“We get a lot of surfers and body surfers here at LCC or so it’s good to chat about the various breaks and what’s happening around the beaches.
Apart from that, for a small town, guests are spoilt for choice when it comes to what they can see and do.
“Hinterland towns, bushwalks and waterfalls, markets, galleries, restaurants and cafes, world heritage Fraser Island, Noosa Everglades.
“Sometimes it’s hard to know where to start, we are so lucky” he says.
