Great deals for 1 night to 7 plus! Right across the road from the beach and surrounded by lovely eateries this is a good family spot. Undercover parking secured overnight and lift access which is essential for the three level accommodation.

Stayed in a one bedroom apartment on the third floor and couldn't have been happier. Great beach views, very quiet, and everything you could possibly need. There is secure parking. The one bedroom apartment had a full kitchen, washing machine, spa, aircon, a fantastic balcony with beach views. These apartments are close to restaurants, shops, beach and a small cafe/restaurant... More

Heartily recommend this apartment complex and particularly the apartments to the rear which are very quiet. Office staff are very helpful with good connections to affordable rental company in Maroochydore. Kitchen is most adequate to cook own meals with food supplied from local Supermarket only 10 mins walk away. The older one gets the more one appreciate the quiet of... More

we had visitors arrive at short notice whm we could not accommodate in our home so we contacted beach retreat who provided us with an excellent solution. A great selection of restaurants within walking distance and the beach was a 2 min walk

Stayed for just one night. The facilities are great and staff friendly and helpful. Walking distance to the beach, shops and restaurants. Stayed in a 1 bedroom studio and it had plenty of room and a great view of the ocean. Will be back for sure.

BBQ facilities below where the pools, spas and sauna is located. 100 metres from the central shopping centre and the surf club

We highly recommend this resort if you are planning a stay on the Sunshine Coast!! We loved it! We had booked a one bedroom apartment with sea views and we were on the third floor which get the best views. We spent so much time on the deck because it overlooks the beach with spectacular views. The resort has great... More

Fantastic location for beach access and shops and restaurants . The one bedroom apartment was clean,light but a little dated but in saying that it was spacious and value for the location. The bed was very comfy and the air con certainly came in handy. The reception staff were friendly and nothing was too much of a problem. Secure under... More
