“Well equipped, spacious apartments”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2010

We stayed at Osprey for 5 nights with 2 children aged 13 and 9. We had the best equipped and one of the biggest apartments I've ever stayed in and it was spotlessly clean. Our apartment was no. 17, I mention this as each apartment is actually owned and equipped by different people, although they all have to adhere to certain standards. You can even buy little sachets of washing powder from Reception which is handy if you are travelling around and don't want to lug great boxes of it in your luggage. We had a sea view and we were on the first floor which meant the pool was only a few steps away, which never seemed to get too busy and the jacuzzi was great and open until about 9 in the evening so fun to look up at the stars. The whole place is very secure with basement parking. Good BBQ faciliites. Supermarket about 5-7 mins walk as are banks and LOADS of shops and restaurants, which close earlier than some holiday destinations - be warned you may not have time to go back and spend ages getting ready to go out in the evening, we found the eating places closed at about 8 pm!! Fab beach, big waves and patrolled during the day. Great for teenagers but not tacky.

Stayed for a week in a 3 bed unit. Had everything you need, with air con in all the bedrooms. The pool was great and wasn't too crowded considering it was the christmas week. The pool has a large shallow end which was perfect for our 2 year old. Pool towels are $5 so bring your own. There is visitor parking available, which makes it easier to park than some of the accommodation closer to the esplanade. You can access the closest beach by walking down some stairs about a 5 minute walk, though it is about a 10 minute walk to the patrolled beach. As with all Australian accommodation the internet access is overpriced.

My wife and I holiday in the Gold Coast twice a year and this time we went to the Sunshine Coast as well.After reading the reviews we stayed at the Osprey for 5 nights in November. Although the Apartments looks a little dated on the outside once we stepped into our room it was very modern with everything,one of the Best appointed Apartments that we have stayed in. The Apartment was really large,huge decks front and rear. Just a 5 minute walk to all the shops etc. Large pool and great outdoor area with BBQ. These are Great Apartments at very good rates.

What a fabulous stay we had at the Osprey. Our 3 bedroom apartment was very modern, had all the facilities we needed and was more than enough room for the 5 of us. The views are spectacular, and the location ideal for the beach, restaurants, supermarket and public transport. Our kids loved the pool and enjoyed the lawn area to charge around in. The grounds are immaculate and very well maintained. The great hospitality of the managers, Dave and Sue, is second to none. I would return at the drop of a hat.

My wife and I had a really lovely long weekend at Osprey Apartments. Adjacent to beautiful Mooloolaba Beach and a host of excellent restaurants, Osprey is ideally located in the heart of a popular holiday destination. The complex is well managed with particularly helpful and friendly staff and we would highly recommend the facility to anyone visiting the Sunshine Coast.

Osprey apartments are ideally situated just across the road from the Mooloolaba sea front and only a couple of minutes walk from the sea front cafes, restaurants and boardwalk. The building is attractive, well maintained and modern with well tended grounds and a very nice pool / jacuzzi area. Secure basement parking with one space per apartment is accessible by lift with a handy visitors car park at street level.

We had a two bedroom ground floor apartment with front and rear patio areas. The living / kitchen area is huge, well equipped and colourfully decorated with extremely comfortable furnishings and a colourful surf / beach decor theme.

The main bedroom has a TV and had a walk in storage room and en suite toilet / shower room. A separate toilet and bath / laundry room made this an extremely comfortable and pleasant accommodation choice for 4 adults and would be ideal for a large family with a sofa bed included in the living area.
