THEY were the days - can you remember when a contract was a simple sheet of paper and often signed off on the boot of a car?

Life was simpler then and a local tranquil spot for retirement held special appeal to Brisbane based business owners.

As is often the case, the best laid plans change. Mark Lawler of Richardson & Wrench Coolum has been entrusted with the sale of 1 and 3 Geeribach Ln.

Offered separately is 687sqm of vacant land and an adjoining lot of 882sqm with an original fibro beach house complete with big picture windows and timber floors.
