My husband and I have just returned to NZ after spending the 4 weeks of July in beautiful Mooloolaba - we have just escaped a cold NZ winter! We arrived in the middle of a Queensland winter and enjoyed temperatures in the mid 20s . The sun rising in front of our apartment at 6.30am enticing us to have our... More

Hi Terry, Many thanks for taking the time to place a review for Sandcastles Mooloolaba and for your kind words. We are happy that the Sunshine Coast was able to provide a good dose of sunshine during your stay. Apartment 307 is a guest favourite due to its casual ambience and wonderful sea views. We do have extra outdoor tables... More

This is by far the worst experience I have had when staying in accommodation. We paid $295 for the 'best' room and it was so small, the view from the balcony was the bins at the Mooloolaba Surf Club! The Managers obviously have no idea how to run a business well. We were forced to pack up and go home... More

Hi Clea, Many thanks for taking the time to place a review. As you did not advise us of any issues you had with your apartment during your overnight stay, we were unaware that you were not happy and chose to leave. It has been unseasonably cold this winter which is why we have extra heaters and blankets available if... More

Sand castles is rather unique in that al the apartments are one bedroom. Good for couples but not family's. We had a top floor unit on the northern corner with a sun deck accesses by a circular stair case. The unit got sun all day in winter & had a 180 degree view of the beach. Our unit was on... More

Hi Terry, Many thanks for your kind words - we took over Sandcastles in February 2014 and really enjoy being able to provide all our guests with excellence in customer service. As you said, being all one bedroom apartments, Sandcastles is not suitable for groups or families. Our location would have to be the best in Mooloolaba and we encourage... More

We just spent the Easter long weekend at the Sandcastle and had a great time. We stayed in room 301 facing away from the ocean and the apartment was a good size with a small kitchen, laundry in the bathroom and a few foxtel channels on the tv. The balcony was a good size with 4 seat table, clothes drying... More

Stayed here for the Australia Day weekend and loved it. For its location, it's great value for money and probably as close as you can get to being on the beach. Ideal for a couple having a weekend away. Bridget and her lovely husband can't do enough to make your stay comfortable; they even brought out the DVDs when the... More

Surprisingly very simple to find in Mooloolaba, following the signs to a Underwater world, situated right across the road. I'm regular visitor to the shopping area underneath, trendy and up to date shops with great view of ocean and only metres from the Surf club and water. Is friendly welcoming feeling about here, rooms are modern and welcoming.
