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

Big multi-bedroom apartments with modern fit out and family friendly furniture and layout. My five bedroom family easily fit into a three bedroom apartment with my two boys sharing a two single bed room while my daughter had a queen bed to herself. Full size bathrooms and kitchen make the unit like a small house. Easy walk to shops, the... More

Jonathon, thank you for your review. Our location is second to none and the size of the apartments really does mean a family can all relax and have their own space. We do have a lot of families who come here each year as we (and Coolum) are family orientated. See you next time. Kind regards Shirley, Manager More

We recently spent the weekend with friends at Element on Coolum. I have to say Shirley at the front desk was nothing short of fabulous! Very obliging and friendly. The location is in the heart of Coolum a short stroll to cafes, shops, and the local supermarket. We had 3 separate apartments between us, and all were clean, neat and... More

Element has various sizes of self catering apartments on the main drag in coolum which is a short walk to the beach, many restaurants and cafés, and supermarkets. Accommodation is good quality with decent amenities. Only real issue is wifi. Not very effective and you don't get much download capacity for the period you buy the service - you can... More
