Sea Point Ocean Apartments
Reviewed October 2, 2011

We looked at these apartments while walking past it when previously visiting. We decided to try them out for a weekend. Yes, there were some things that people would find a little off-putting. We had apartment 20 on the top floor and there are no lifts. However, my husband and I considered that bonus exercise. :-) We are 60 and 65 and can still walk stairs without a problem.

The apartment itself was basic, a little dated and did not really give luxury and there were a few things that needed repair - but that was what we expected for the price we paid. However, we did have a spectacular view over the ocean (with the full moon coming up every night). The area is much less busy than what we had previously experienced in Coolum and Caloundra. So, no noisy and smelly cars the whole time. I was so surprised to see a walk-in wardrobe with enough hangers!! The bathrooms were spacious. We will come back. We also found dealing with the Managers very pleasant. The garden is lovely and there is a nice swimming pool.

Room Tip: Top floor for views!

Unit 20 has been fully renovated and is now a lovely apartment to offset the fantastic views.
It is beautiful to see the light from the full moon sparkling on the ocean.

We last stayed at Sea Point 5 years ago, and enjoyed the experience. But this visit was a disappointment. We were 3 generations - grandparents, daughter & 5 month old grandson.

We had apartment 24, top floor, far right as you look from the street. It is "original", as fitted out over 20 years ago. The kitchen urgently needs a full renovation - peeling laminate on cupboard doors, an ancient electric hotplate and oven that was no better. Kitchen equipment was rudimentary, with cheap kitchen knives and few extras for us to cook with.

Lounge room lighting was poor - one switch at front door lit a large round kitchen fluoro at the front door plus two dim wall brackets - but one was broken and wouldn't work with a new globe. You watched TV with the bright fluoro in your eyes, or turned it off and used just the fluoro over the dining table = too dim to read. TV was small and old, had to bring it close for a fair view by 2010 standards. There was a good CD/radio.

Bedrooms - a queen, a double and a two-singles. Hard & cheap pillows, piles of extra blankets and old bedside tables stored in dressing room - why not clear it all out? Only one bedside clock in total, no clock radios.

Cleanliness = very poor. While obvious surfaces appeared clean, all shelves in kitchen, bedrooms & bathrooms were grimy, needed a good dose of Jif & elbow grease. We Wiped the bathroom floor dry after baby's splashing bath, resulted in a very dirty (white) bathmat.

Air-conditioning? There is none, which was OK in July, but this apartment is exposed all along its side to due north - would be an oven in summer.

We complained about all these issues, especially the dirt but were NEVER offered a proper clean.

Finally, this is the third floor, and there is no lift at all. we came home very fit but very disappointed. Would not stay there again, despite the hardly surprising $100/night bargain price. Look at the 3 or 4 options in the same strip of Victoria Terrace as it's a great location and view.
