I had 15 staff stay here for three weeks whilst we did a job nearby. The management were so welcoming and friendly, the rooms were spacious and inviting, and the resort had terrific facilities and the cleanest BBQ in Australia. Cannot speak highly enough of this resort.

We are leaving Coolum Beach Getaway Resort tomorrow after a week. We've had a great stay. These units are fully self contained with a full kitchen and laundry. The unit was air conditioned however it wasn't as effective down stairs. This was a minor inconvenience. The hosts Murray and Carmel were very helpful. There's a half court tennis court and... More

Cannot recommend highly enough. Excellent value for a week long stay at peak season. VERY family friendly. Pool area safe and clean. Our unit had everything we needed in kitchen and laundry (including broom and vacuum to keep the beach out of the apartment!) The garage was a little tight to get in and out of, but the location was... More

Clearly a lot of reviewers haven't stayed at real top class beach accommodation as I think the ratings are a little OTT for what the getaway 'resort' really offers compared with others in Coolum. On the positive side, the hosts are incredibly friendly and helpful and the units themselves are pretty good if in need of a bit of a... More

Our family recently returned to the Getaway Resort after staying there 8 yrs ago. The stay was just as good this time as it was the last. Nothing was too much trouble for Murray, who arranged an early check in. The facilities were clean and of a good standard. The lockup garage was excellent, although getting in was a bit... More

After a break of 8 years, our growing family of 5 returned to the Sunshine Coast area. We were welcomed with open arms by Murray to these wonderful apartments. Our flight arrived in Brisbane very early in the morning and an early check was no problem at all. The apartment was very clean and neat and fitted us all in... More

We could not get over the welcome! Brilliant accommodation, we felt very spoilt, so did the kids aswell. Everyone we meet were very friendly and were very helpful to suggest places to visit or eat at. We loved it soo much that we are planning our next trip. Thank you Carmel and Murray can't wait to see you again!

We stayed here for a week recently and liked this place. We are a family of three (Mum and Dad and our 16 yr old Son), and after a bot of searching around we thought we'd give the Getaway Resort a go, and we are glad we did. This place has about 20 units set around a nice pool area... More

We had a wonderful stay at Coolum Beach Getaway Resort. The location was great, being a short walk from town, but still quiet and relaxing. A short walk to the beaches meant we could go for a swim and time in the sun but still be home for lunch, then back to the beach if we wanted to do it... More

Only one street away from the north end of Coolum Beach. Within walking distance of the local shops and supermarket and yet such a wonderfully relaxing quiet resort. The units are well equipped and kept spotlessly clean, with balconies overlooking the pool and tennis court. Murray is the consummate host - friendly, helpful and with a wealth of knowledge of...
