This was our first time staying at Coolum (normally we stay at the much busier Mooloolaba) and we would visit again. We had a two bedroom apartment and found it to be very spacious for our family of four. It would be an ideal unit for a longer stay. The heated pool was a hit with the kids and the... More

Our family of four (2 teenagers) had a great Easter break at Element on Coolum in a 2 bedroom apartment overlooking the pool. Very nice modern apartments right on the main street and opposite the beach. The managers were very friendly and helpful.

We have been coming to Coolum for many years, but this is our first stay at Element. This is a beautifully maintained complex. The 3 bedroom apartment was enormous; well fitted out; view over the ocean; close to restaurants and shops and very clean and fresh looking. Wifi is not included but available from a third party provider (quite expensive... More

We stayed here over the Easter long weekend and shared a Sub Penthouse with some friends. The rooms are massive and with two families with small kids there was more than enough space. The media room was fantastic for the kids to enjoy while the parents entertained on the huge deck. All bedrooms were spacious with the master having a... More

Excellent location, pool was lovely, apartment was clean and modern, loved having two tv's in the apartment. Loved that we could walk to the beach in a minute and also to the shops and restaurants. Staff were so accommodating and friendly - this makes a huge difference. We will be back - can't speak highly enough of Element on Coolum.

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.

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
