We caught up with Melissa recently to ask how this dynamic duo came to be in Noosa, running this unique style of business.
What motivated you and your husband to live in Noosa?
Living in Noosa for the last 16 years I have seen Noosa transform from a quiet little beach town to now a tourist loving destination. We have some of the best beaches in the world, amazing cuisines, great surfing and an upmarket but still relaxed vibe.
As a true local I have always loved Noosa for its calm beach vibes it represents so well. My husband moved to Australia 9 years ago from Brazil and chose Noosa for these very reasons.

How did you and Raphael meet?
I first met Raphael when he responded to an advertisement I had on Gumtree when I was looking for a female housemate and Raph was looking for a room to rent (who needs Tinder when you’ve got Gumtree?!).
Not the type to let an opportunity pass him by, he applied for the room under the cheeky guise of Rachel. Loving his energy and tenacity I offered him the room and so began our fairy-tale romance. Fast forward to now we have two companies together, purchased a house in Noosa and are married. We are bound by a love of the ocean, cooking, health, and surfing!
How is your service special?
We provide a unique service not only with Raphael’s expertise in being a chef. But also, with my background in gut health, nutrition, and fitness coaching. Combining our knowledge and experience enables us to assist any customer. We have many customers who come to us with health concerns, allergies, and the best thing we tell our customers is nothing is too complicated or us to cater for.
We provide an initial consultation with every service enquiry enabling us to design menus and services around any requirement.
Finally, how do you think your services enhance the experiences of guests to Noosa?
Our services enhance guests stays by making life just that bit easier or that extra bit special.
Our personal chef meal prep service assists guest’s holidays with money and time, our customers are then not either constantly spending money eating out for every meal as well as not wasting time cooking and preparing food for the family.
Our catering service enhances guests stay by providing services for many travellers’ special occasions. This could be a birthday, anniversary, wedding, or simply just to spoil their spouse.
