“Certainly no luxury and in need of TLC”
Reviewed April 2, 2011

Stayed two weeks at this place with infant (toddler) and inlaws. First week at 3 bedroom at La mer (adjacent to and also managed by 84 The Spit) and the second week in penthouse of 84 The Spit. Great views, close to restaurants and shops, great beach access. Unfortunately no value for money. Apartment at La Mer had just been refurbished, interior was nice, the terrace great for our little daughter. The unit hat no air con at all, also no phone, of the three DVD Players stacked on top of each other one worked. Would be great with more attention to detail and aircon throughout. The temperature in our bedroom and that of our daughter hovered around 30 degrees at night. Moved to penthouse in 84 the spit during second week due to the heat and for promise of air con. Fantastic views, but single aircon unit in living room very old, not well maintained and insufficient for cooling the apartment. Penthouse interior outdated apart from kitchen. Definitely not worth the money. Other annoyance included that beach towels and Wifi cost extra, which should be included at this price. Additionally, the windows were very poor - difficult to open and close and provided no sound barrier at all - particularly annoying for those sleeping in the back rooms that border a busy street and a bar across the road that has loud patrons coming and going up until 3am from Thursday to Saturday night. Staff was very friendly but did not more than apologise and point to the owners of apartments' for shortcomings. If you require air con during hot days esp. or for sleeping at night, then you would most likely find better equipped accommodation for the same cost or less in the area.

Dear jchoch,

It is with great disappointment I read your review on Trip Advisor in relation to your recent stay at LaMer & 84 The Spit.
Your feedback is taken very seriously and the apartment owners of the units you stayed in have been contacted and informed of your experience while staying with us.

You are correct in saying one of the DVD players was broken and the reason for another in the room was to ensure you, as the guest and for your convenience, had a DVD player which was working during your stay. This is a loan machine from our office as we need to wait for the approval from the unit owners before a replacement is bought. I am pleased to say there is now a brand new DVD player in the room. As regards to a phone, this apartment next door is only managed by us and as it is a separate property we are physically unable to connect the PABX phone system. I was rather intrigued with your comments about the bedroom temperature and from investigating I have found someone had fiddled with the settings on the fan. It was on a ‘winter’ setting which means the blades rotate the other way, so instead of air being blown down, which would have kept you cool; the air was blowing up and circulating warm air around the room. From your feedback we have now made it part of our pre-arrival check list to inspect all the fans in the rooms and to make sure they are on the correct settings.

As mentioned above I have informed the penthouse owner of your feedback to ensure he is aware of your experiences. As with all feedback this helps towards making yours and other guests stays more comfortable in the future. Our penthouse owner is very obliging and certainly takes all feedback and suggestions seriously. The owner is very aware the apartment is a little tired and only last week the interior designers went through the unit and their ideas have been conveyed to the owner. He has agreed to meet the designers and ourselves onsite next week to discuss & approve renovations. Prior to your stay with us several items in the apartment had been replaced such as all the beds, stove hotplates and the microwave.

I also understand our windows are due for repair and as mentioned to you during your stay all of the windows in the complex are being replaced and heat reflective properties and glass sound-proofing is also in the specifications for the new windows. Further to this many of the unit owners are replacing their curtains and blinds at the time the windows are being replaced.

Please be assured your comments do not reflect the standard of the entire units in 84 The Spit. We as the resident managers are proud of the property and certainly do value your feedback as this allows us the opportunity to raise the standards already in place to ensure the experience and expectations of all our guests are met.

Again I would like to thank you for your feedback and please don’t hesitate to contact me directly the next time you are wishing to stay in Mooloolaba.

Kind regards,
Graeme & Lucille
