The Beche de Mer has seen better days. What was once a fabulous beach guest house is now an old fibro shack nestled amongst the Gold Coast high rises, in stark need of renovation…or demolition. It’s also worth a mint.
Tegan Bennett lives there with her demented grandmother Philomena. While Philomena is lost in memories of her fantastic but faded past, Tegan dreams of becoming the successful businesswoman her grandmother once was. In reality, she’s a hotel cleaner who is growing tired of cleaning up after wealthy patrons. She’s lured by dreams of a rich Gold Coast lifestyle.
Then one night, Tegan’s father Quayde comes crashing into their lives, determined to talk Tegan into selling her grandmother’s property so they can share the $2 million profit. It sounds like the answer to Tegan’s prayers. But there’s one thing neither of them have taken into account … the strength of Tegan’s attachment to the Beche de Mer.
