This was our first visit to Noosa and we decided to stay right on Hastings Street as we were only staying for 3 nights ... and wow did we make the right choice with our accommodation!
Our requirements were for a modern apartment that could fit our extended family group of 5 adults and 3 kids. We chose Saks on Hastings because we knew what we were getting from the photos on their website of the 3 bdm penthouse, the price (AU$550 per night), the location and the reviews on TRIPADVISOR were pretty good.
The management (Annaliese) were fantastic responding to my emails, very friendly and professional and made everthing seem no problem. In person they were even better!
The apartment complex is situated at the quieter end of Hastings St, over the road from the beach and the surf club. Its about a 1 minute stroll from the Saks gate to the patrolled section on the beach, we couldn't have been happier with our location. Our apartment was allocated 2 parking spaces for our rentals, but with the amazing location you don't need to drive anywhere. Restaurants galore in Hastings St! Though we all agreed the apt it was much more peaceful and quiet than we had expected.
The apartment itself is lovely as you can see from the photos. Modern, quality decor, spacious and sunny living areas, very comfortable beds - quite small rooms but all had cupboards and drawers. The kitchen is so well equipped with settings of everything, like 16 plates, bowls, cutlery etc and we never ran out.
The apartment layout was: 1st floor was all tiled and had the kitchen, living/dining area, 1 queen bedroom , laundry, separate toilet and bathroom with shower.There is a smallish balcony with outdoor table and chairs that overlooks the tree lined street and beach. 2nd floor (all carpeted) had 1 queen bedroom that can fit a cot, 1 bedroom with 2 bunks so sleeps 4 (see photo), bathroom with big bath and a huge balcony off the 2 bedrooms with outdoor chairs and loungers that looks out over street also. Linen was supplied, beach towels are available at reception. The kids loved the pool too.
The Penthouse is located up 3 flights of stairs( no lift) so you do need to be reasonably fit to take them a couple of times a day, but my 70 year old mum had no problem. There is also a flight of stairs in the apt. as its 2 level.
So to sum up...Our 3 night stay was not long enough, we really did not want to leave for the Gold Coast and we have all agreed to return to this accomodation again in the future. Saks was affordable luxury on Hastings Street and we were 100% satisfied with our choice.
