“A 10/10 experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2009

One can always find a fault with holiday destinations but not with this resort. A gated compound of some two dozen dwellings situated next to Marcus Beach 10 mins drive south of Noosa (90mins drive north of Brisbane) this is as good as it gets. Lovely house (3 levels) view of the beach and sea and secluded, private, quiet and so well done. even the phone in the house (with 2 extensions) had buttons for local taxi, pizza place and cinema). Lovely spa bath and showers. 2 mins stroll to a deserted beach on a secluded private walkway. Helpful managers there if one needed onsite.
Some folk just go for a few days apparently - even a week wasnt enough to get the full potential of this lovely place.

This resort is simply great. Being one of the only few beach front resorts in Noosa, Sunshine Coast, Queesland. It offers great accomodations, good rates and above all a fantastic view of the ocean.( best seen from the Beach House).
Our pre-booked Beach House has 3 levels and a private garage. You enter on the middle level, which has the kitchen, living area with LCD TV, dining area, and a patio with a full sized bbq set.
Below is another living area for kids, the laundry room with washer and dryer, and 3 bedrooms.
On the highest floor, you have the masterbedroom with patio, study area with long table and bookshelves and ensuite with spa.
I highly recommend this resort for familes, couples and if you want something different from the usual apartments etc. Beautiful scenery, great and clean accomodation. Its all worth it and will make your holiday even more enjoyable.

  • Liked — Great beach front ocean views and sounds of waves.
  • Disliked — Internet service is not quite stable

Along the beach, a heated pool, full-sized tennis court, or hire a bike and go for a ride on the bike track.
