We stayed for 2 nights in a 3BHK room in August in the Element. The rooms were overwhelmingly spacious and comfortable with all amenities Shirley was very friendly and helpful with instructions and guidelines for Reception after hours procedures Was slightly let down on the Ocean views, it was not really that close to the Oceanand a small issue with...

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

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

We spent 6 nights at Elements early August. Agree with "Great Location in Coolum!!" We could not fault this complex. Following the previous two stops on our holiday, it was a pleasure to find a unit that was clean, comfortable and well maintained. Our balcony faced the North overlooking the pool and it was a great place to sit and... More

Have recently returned from a 3 night stay at Element on Coolum. The location is brilliant with so many shops and cafe's close by. Coles is also in walking distance to be able to stock up the kitchen. The bed was one of the most comfortable that I've slept in !! The resort grounds were very well kept and the... More

The location is great - right in the heart of coolum. Great parking available also below the apartments and just a lift ride up to the apartment. We were on the ground floor which was great. A little disappointed that the table in our apartment was broken. The table and chairs outside were also very dated and sad looking. The... More

Thank you Jacqui for your review. We appreciate all feedback and of course "praise" of our wonderful resort. We are working with owners to refurb their apartments, so my apologies if the furniture was not of the standard it should have been in yours - I will keep working on it. Tickle Park is a great place for the children... More

Very disappointed to discover the apartment we booked by the pool, that we once part owned & I fully decorated in light bright contemporary coastal style had been double booked. We were moved to an apartment at the back of the complex, not poolside & a very depressing brown decor. Shame when this weekend getaway was to celebrate a very... More

Suzie, thank you for writing in with your review. I did ring the owner of the apartment with who had offered his apartment to you, if we could move your stay into another apartment in the centre of the complex due to the "matrix" (jigsaw) of bookings. We had not double booked and did seek permission from your friend/owner, as... More

The location is truly great. Restaurants, shops and the beach are a comfortable walk from your apartment. The staff seem pleasant and accommodating. However, Element's security measures boarder on annoying. Constant checkpoints require your room key to access just about every part of the complex. Also, the pay TV and television are rather hard to navigate. Aside from that, as... More

Thank you for your review Tyson. We do have the security fobs for guests use within the complex - at the front gate after hours, your secure foyer areas and the secure carpark. These are in place for your peace of mind. It does mean that you have to take your apartment key with you when you go out to... More

Spacious modern apartment in convenient location. At first difficult to access with stroller, steps and key locks with very strict security. Added costs for any extras such as towels for pool, high chair and replacements for basic amenities. More amenities - soap powder, detergent, toilet paper, coffee, tea, salt and pepper would be very welcome, especially for short stays where... More

We keep our rates very competitive with the other resorts, which means that every apartment has "starter" consumables for our guests use and the extras are charged at a minimal rate.
