“Excellent-the apartment-location-facilities-layout-the lot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

We attended a wedding at Coolum and the apartments accomodated many of the wedding guests also. We found our three room apartment more than satisfied our party of six. Well set out lounge, kitchen and bedrooms. The secure parking and elevator made for easy access for my not so mobile mother-in-law. Supermarket and cafes close by are a bonus.Easy walk to the beach and the surf club all made for a wonderful stay.The Management and Staff were friendly and helpful. We would like to return one day.

Hello Ted T.We have been so lucky to have many wedding guests stay with us recently. I am really happy to hear your accommodation was suitable for your group. The undercover carparking and lift access to all floors is a huge bonus for many people. As you have commented, our central location is a real bonus. We loook forward to seeing you again.

Hello Lovex5. Thank you for your great review of our resort. Our location is definitely a bonus for guests. Many find they do not even need to use their car with Coles just across the road, a short walk to restaurants and cafes and a stroll to the bus stop to tak you to Maroochydore or Noosa! We do try and keep on top of maintenance issues and act on any that are reported immediately. We hope to see you here again soon.

Only a 1 min walk to the beach and 2 mins to all the cafés and restaurants. Stayed with my hubby, so asked for a quiet room. Hard request given it was school holidays, but the manager put us at the end of the complex near the lap pool. It was quiet, private and we chad no idea it was holiday time. Beautiful accommodation, well serviced, clean, modern, quiet, great range of pools and amenities, private, just exceptional. Highly recommend to anyone - families or couples.... Just ask for suitable accommodation when you book.

Hello LisaH. I am so glad you and your husband enjoyed your stay with us. The benefit of staying in a larger resort like Coolum at the Beach is that there is plenty of room to escape the noise of other people enjoying their holiday! Many of our one bedroom apartments are located at the lap pool end of the resort - which does tend to be quieter. I'm glad you enjoyed our close proximity to the beach and shops / restaurants and I will pass your comments about the cleanliness of your apartment onto our cleaners. We look forward to seeing you again.

We stayed in a 3 bedroom villa for 6 nights. At first we booked 5, then decided on an extra night at the spare of the moment & the lovely receptionist didn't mind swapping & changing to help us.
The villa was amazing, beautifully furnished with very modern appliances & it was huge. Bigger then our house at home, plenty of room for us two adults & 4 children. The rooftop spa was awesome, also had a
bbq. That was super handy:)
I loved the back patio, it opened up to a tropical oasis with a path that contained 4 pools pools all along the resort & fabulous gardens & flowing rock pools, simply stunning!!
Will definitely be returning.... such a lovely relaxing stay :)

Hello Jenrr. Thank you for taking the time to write such a fantastic review of our resort. I have to agree - our villas are a real treat for a family holiday. Guests are always surprised at how large and well appointed they are - plus the rooftop spa is an absolute bonus. It sounds like your six stay with us left a memorable impression and we look forward to welcoming you back again one day.

Apartments (2 bedroom) were spacious and clean, with two bathrooms provided between four of us. Washing facilities within the apartment were great, along with a kitchen that provided everything you need for a 5 night stay. Pool areas were clean and well maintained, with a free parking space provided securely underground.
Rachel at reception was very helpful, recommending restaurants in the local area, and places to go. On the first night, other guests were very loud and boisterous throughout the night, but after we complained, the problem was solved and there were no further disturbances.
Accommodation was very close to a Coles, banks and cafe's, with a further 10 minute walk to restaurants and the Surf Club. The beach was also a short walk away.
Wish we could've stayed longer, will recommend this place to anyone.

Room Tip: Two-bedroom apartments provide plenty of space for four people. A little more wardrobe space in the...

Hello and thank you for your great review of our resort. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us and found our fully self-contained apartments more than adequate for your stay. They do have all the kitchen and laundry facilities you need while on holidays - like a home away from home! All guests rave about our pool facilities - which really are numerous and I will pass onto Rachel your kind feedback about her customer service. We are very lucky to have her! Our proximity to the Coles shopping centre could not be better and as you say we are just a short stroll to everything that Coolum has to offer. We hope to welcome you back again one day!

Location - Quiet and within walking distance to shopping - Coles supermarket just across the road.
Beach also across the road. We spent 28 days in a 2 bedroom apartment on the top floor which included 2 bathrooms. Clean - tidy and all staff pleasant and very helpful. 4 pools well appointed. I used the 'Lap-pool' everyday - fabulous and warm:-)
ROOM TIPS:- For the so-called winter months would definitely recommend top level.
The whole complex being 'Non-Smoking' would have made it 'Perfect'!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend it to our friends & families.

Room Tip: See above - top floor for winter months.

Hello Judy, and thank you for your great review. I'm so glad you enjoyed your month here with us and didn't you have great weather! As you say, our position is so convenient - just across the road from the beach and just across from Coles as well - you don't really need a car! Having the lap pool and main pool heated are fabulous and really do allow year-round swimming. All our apartments are non-smoking inside, however smoking is still allowed on the balconies. We hope to see you here again one day!

We stayed here for a couple of nights during a recent trip to Australia. The managers were lovely and couldn't do enough for us. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment that had everything you could ever want. The place is clean and tidy, you have your own parking space with a lift up to all levels, the grounds are also lovely with a stream flowing through them. There is a supermarket opposite where you can buy all your supplies as well as some nice restaurants not too far away (even some take-aways if you prefer). We were recomended to try Harvest as my wife is vegetarian, needless to say after we tried it the first night, we went back on the second.
For those wanting to cook their own, there is even a barbecue by the pool to get you into the Aussie spirit. I will definitely stay here again on my next visit to the sunshine coast.

Room Tip: All rooms are good and face the gardens/pool.

Hello Travel Junkie! Well - I think you described our resort even better than I could! Everything you mentioned captures the essence of Coolum at the Beach perfectly. Our one bedroom apartments are extremely spacious and offer all the comforts of home - including full kitchen and laundry and private balcony. Our undercover secure carparking with lift access is a big bonus - as is our proximity to Coles and all of Coolum's great restaurants. And I'm glad to hear you enjoyed Harvest - it's my favourite restaurant in Coolum. We hope to see you back here by the pool for another Aussie BBQ.
