Aspect Caloundra

Reviewed September 14, 2011

Overall we were very happy with our stay at Aspect and would recommend it as one of the better places to stay in Caloundra. Be careful though if travelling with very young children (under 5) as it is not particularly set up with little people in mind (e.g. please don't keep the kitchen knives in the lower kitchen drawers where little hands explore!). The apartment and common areas were basically all very clean, however the rug under the coffee table was dirty upon our arrival which was disappointing. Unless you really have to stay in a place where you can step out of your door onto sand, the location is good and close to everything Bulcock Beach has to offer. Book a Premier room on a high floor if the budget stretches to it and you won't be disappointed - the views of the ocean and distant Glasshouse Mountains are superb. Management seemed to be very professional and responsive. Overall a good choice for your Caloundra holiday.

Room Tip: Higher the better!

Have been staying here for the past 4 years. The complex is still in pristine condition. It has all that a resort offers with 2 swimming pools, ( resort and lap pool), tennis court, gym, suana, BBQ and theatrette. The apartments are spacious with modern furnishings and large balconies. Laundry with washing machine and dryer and full size kitchen. TV in lounge and bedroom.
A nice touch on arrival is complimentary Moccona coffee for plunger coffee, milk (not UHT), and chocolates.
Even though it is a large complex it is extremely quiet and often have the pool to yourself and manage to book the tennis court when we wish.
We like Aspect for the close proximity to the beach, shopping, supermarket and bus services. No need to hire a car.
Kudos to the managers Chris and Fraer for keeping this property a pleasure to stay at.

Room Tip: The resort view rooms may not have a beach view but are best for autumn/winter as they are the only...

Arriving after a 4am start, 5 hour journey and in the middle of a bus strike, to find that they didn't have our booking, things weren't boding well for our relaxing get away escape! To be fair they were relief managers still finding their way around and once I produced proof from Expedia that we had booked and paid, we were upgraded to a deluxe apartment with amazing views and all mod cons. The facilities were as advertised and I made full use of the gym, pools and spa which were all clean and well maintained. The Aspect has cafes restaurants and shops all on it's doorstep with only a 5 minute walk to the beach and only a 2 minute walk from the airport shuttle drop off. It was easy to get around on foot though disappointing that we couldn't explore the rest of the Sunshine Coast with the buses on strike. We managed to hire bikes from Get Biking for only $15 for 1/2 day and also the Queensland Air Museum is worth a trip if you're into aircraft. The only complaint I would have is that the beds were quite hard - but this is only a minor thing. The apartment itself was clean and spacious, with a dressing room off the bedroom, large bathroom with spa bath and large kitchen/dining with the drawers and cupboards well stocked. Also the area seemed very quiet. It was a great, relaxing holiday and we'll be back!

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment in the end building.

This is a great apartment complex about one block from the top end of Bulcock St going down to the park running along the waterfront.

Our apartment overlooked the tennis court and we could also see the pool.

The apartment was a reasonable size - perfect for a couple but would be a squash if you tried to fit in kids.

There was a decent kitchen with fridge, dishwasher and full oven. there was a four seater table and couch with chaise and chair. We re-arranged the furniture and moved the couch along so it was up against the end wall next to the cupboard and the chair along the same wall as the couch which made getting out onto the lovely deck much easier.

The bed was king-size - an uncommon bedsize on the Sunshine Coast so if you want the size up from queen this is the place! Bedroom was a decent size and had en-suite access to the bathroom.

Bathroom wasn't huge but it was adequate but shower ran the width of the bathroom so was long and walk-in. There wasn't a bath. Washing machine and dryer in cupboard in the bathroom.

There was secure undercover parking. Two pools - one with a shallow end that would be great for kids bu you would want to watch them because there was a drop off into deep water, and a lap pool. There is also a spa pool. Nice bbq area in between the pool and tennis court. there is also a gym there but you could give that a miss and go for a walk/run along the waterfront everyday.

the grounds and public areas were kept really well and the room was spotless when we arrived.

I would definitely stay here again. Caloundra was a lovely little town, there are some great restaurants on the waterfront and a great market on a Sunday in Bulcock St. It was 15 minutes up the highway to Mooloolaba. We did the Caloundra Cruise and had lunch at the Pelican Waters pub which was a lovely day out. We also visited the Queensland Air Museum which is in Caloundra and was very interesting.

AspectCaloundra, Manager at Aspect Caloundra, responded to this reviewResponded July 24, 2011

It is most disappointing to read this review. We take this opportunity to apologise to the guest that the Apartment was not up to their expectations. The situation in this case could have been corrected had the guest advised us that there was a problem. Leaving it until check out 3 days later to advise Management of a problem did not allow the situation to be addressed and contributed to the guests disappointing experience.
We recommend that guests bring to our attention as soon as possible any issues that may need attention, we will always do our best to make your stay at Aspect Caloundra as comfortable and relaxing as possible.
