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

We recently spent a long weekend at The Beach Retreat. Fantastic location: walk to the beach, shops and restaurants, but not as busy as other parts of the Sunshine Coast. Lovely views of the ocean, but our one-bedroom apartment looked over one of the two pool areas, so people in the pool area looked directly into our room. The room... More

We stayed in a 1 bedroom Ocean View Apartment for 7 nights. We flew up and caught a shuttle to and from the airport. We found the location to be perfect for us......we had no car so enjoyed being able to walk everywhere. We had been in the area before so didn't really need to go out and about sightseeing... More

We just had 5 nights at the beach retreat in Coolum and absolutely loved it. The unit we had was spacious and clean. Kitchen was well appointed and the bed comfy.
