Stayed at Element on Coolum Beach in late February. We were very pleased with our apartment and Jim and Donna were perfect hosts. Being in the middle of town, close to everything meant we could just completely relax. Will be back in July for some more down time and some scallops from Harvest.

Not to worry the apartments are big enough to for adults to amuse themselves at one end and the kids to hog the telly at the other. The pool is heated and spotless so a long swim was also great fun... More
