We stayed here last month and had a fantastic time. The location is great. There is a huge option of restaurants very close and walking distance to a supermarket. The unit was very clean and the pool was a great size. The office staff were very friendly. I highly recommend this place.

The walls very dirty and in need of a good paint. Ground level unit can be very noisy with pool on same level some guest swimming... More

We just spent 8 days in a 3 bedroom apartment which was really spacious. My main disappointment was that there was only air conditioning in the living room. There were not even any ceiling fans, just an old fashioned oscillating fan in each bedroom. For such a lovely apartment, would have expected more. Our apartment was ground floor and had... More

I was very impressed with this apartment. My husband with two toddlers (4yr old & 16mths old) stayed at their sub penthouse. The place was very clean and quite. The surroundings is very well kept. We didn't get a chance to use the pool but it looked very clean. Locations was great. Plenty restaurants to choose from. Shane who I... More

Just had a week at this location in Coolum. Easy to find and centrally located to eateries and the beach. There is a skate park and kids play park on the water front not far across the road which was a life saver due to stormy summer weather. Unit was nice looking over the pool. Big enough for the family... More

We spent the last few days of our honeymoon here. The rooms were really spacious and comfortable. Our favourite thing was the pool, it was a perfectly heated for early September so we had lots of swims. The staff were all very nice and we were even able to check in early. Location is perfect with everything you need within... More

We've holidayed in Coolum for many years and this remains the best in terms of apartment size, pool quality, and location. For family of 5 sub-penthouse is optimum, spacious and clean. We stayed in first floor rooms, ocean facing but below the tree line so you couldn't actually see the ocean, but it didn't matter. Good shops nearby, perfect restaurant... More

We stayed 3 nights in a 2 bedroom unit. Firstly, the office is located in the middle of the building. Best if you park in the underground carpark and walk through. Our unit was beautifully furnished and felt very new. On entrance the unit felt airy, light and fresh. It was spacious and we enjoyed having two balconies on either... More
