We stayed in the 2 bd apt and was excellent for our needs especially with a new born! Great value for money! Great location to beach and everything within a short drive away :) we will be back if ever back on the Sunshine Coast :)

Located behind the main dune with plenty of access paths to the beach this Resort is a great family centric offering. In well maintained grounds the pool that runs the length of the accommodation is a natural focal point. Whilst we were travelling without our family the noise of children having fun in the pool was lovely - however if... More

Spent 5 nights here in a 2 bedroom apartment on the second floor. Very spacious and comfortable. Bedroom door opened on to the balcony overlooking the pool. Magnificent pool. Beautiful quiet beach within 3 minutes walk from front gate. Great location, just a short drive to Maroochydore, Malloolaba and Noosa. Lovely helpful staff, would definitely stay here again.

We (3 adults and 2 teenagers) stayed in a 3 bedroom poolside villa for a long weekend in September and couldn't fault the accommodation, location or the staff. Wonderful and relaxing. We'll be back for sure.

Away from everything, but just a short drive to everything, local shops are walking distance. So best of both worlds. Bed was really comfortable, clean. Close to beach with great pools. Glad to have stumbled accross this one. We went to Coolum surf club one night for dinner, easy nice drive.

This place is absolutely brilliant for a family, clean, roomy and has everything you need except action! Booking rooms off the net can be very hard and the only thing I can offer outside of all the brilliant reviews this place has got and 100% deserves is there is no decent restaurant or bar within walking distance...really nothing other than...

We stayed at these apartments for 2 weeks and found them to be very comfortable and spotlessly clean. They had everything you needed including dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer even a cafetiere. The furniture and bedding were to a high standard and complimentary toiletries were aromatherapy and a very nice touch. The heated pool and spa were always clean and... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment on the first floor and loved it. We had a fully equipped kitchen, fully aircon, ensuite in main bed and flat screen TVs. Couches and dining table were modern and comfortable. Beds were comfortable enough. Good water pressure in showers. Nice balcony with 6 seat table. The pools were lovely and 1 heated.... More
