Oustanding in all aspects; spent 6 nights over NY weekend with family in 3 br top floor apartment. Lovely ocean views & breeze, well set out, very well maintained, quiet and very relaxing ..just what we were looking for to "chill out" after a busy 2011. Great to be away from the crowds and cafe's of Noosa & Caloundra, but still have great a Sunshine Coast beach at the front door and a very comfy apartment, that is very handy to everything you want ...5 mins from airport and rarely heard a plane!!! Already booked in again for a longer stay Jan 2013. Thx Mal & Lidi..great hosts!!

Room Tip: Top floor rooms have a Roof Top entertaining area ...very practical & great for happy hour!

A group I ten stayed over Christmas. We had 2x three bedroom apartments. Both had sea views and were extremely clean and very well set out. Perfect for 5 adults in each apartment as there were two bathrooms in each along with a laundry. There was enough space for everyone without feeling like we were on top of each other.

Marcoola beach was a quiet location and handy to get to mooloolaba and noosa in either direction.

The pool and BBQ area were well maintained.

I can't really fault the accommodation, will definetly be recommending to friends and family. Will stay again!

Heh, thanks for the great review. We look forward to having you come and stay again soon. The weather has been great here so far this summer... despite all the negative weather reports and forecasts - and our beach is still great and we have not lost much sand at all from the big 4 mtr swells last week. Have a great 2012 hope its a great year for you. Cheers.

Great service. The apartment was super clean and very well fitted out. The whole complex is exceptionally maintained and it is so close to the beach, that the choice between the pool and surf was always hard. We'll definitely be coming back!

Room Tip: Ocean view unbelivable!

We love staying at the San Marino. This is our fourth stay in five years (my wife will corrrect me if I'm mistaken). The patrolled beach is great, as it is straight in front of the Motel with no road between, just sand dunes and trees. the Motel facilities are super clean and well maintained, and it's in close proximity to Convenience Shops, Servo, Restaraunts, Hot Bread Shop, and the Airport. You don't have to drive anywhere, and the car parks are all under cover.

Room Tip: Floors 3 & up have ocean views, but all of the rooms we have stayed in have been Excelent

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay here. As you mentioned you really dont want for anything here with the bakery and various local restaurants / cafes over the road, so convenient and delicious. You are always very welcome at San Marino and it will be a pleasure to look after you when you come back again. All the very best to you and the family for the Christmas holidays and New Year.
