We stayed at On The Beach Noosa for five nights in January.
The building is in a fantastic location, right in the middle of Hastings Street and fronts onto the beach, with direct access.
The pool area also looks onto the beach and has a spa, steam room, outside shower, toilet and sun lounges. We rarely had to share the pool with anyone, as the beach is so nice and warm that you hardly use the pool! (the pool was much warmer than the beach too)
The lifeguards were a few meters down the beach, which is great for families wanting to swim between the flags.
We had Penthouse 25, which has a smaller balcony with a spiral staircase onto the roof where there is a spa, BBQ, fridge, sink, sun lounges, and table and chairs.
The apartment was nicely furnished and the bed was comfortable.
The only negative, was there weren't many utensils or pots/pans in the kitchen, but we got by as most things we cooked on the BBQ, or we went out for dinner. Also the fridge & freezer smelt like fish (from a previous tenant) and there were also some small brown ants that appeared in the kitchen, but they didn't worry us too much.
We didn't hire a car, but we did catch a taxi to the Coles a few kilometres away at the Junction to get breakfast/lunch stuff for the week. This cost about $9 each way. There is a small supermarket just under On The Beach, but it was a little limited and more expensive.
We also hired Kayaks and paddled around the edge of the national park, however it was a bit rough, so I wouldn't recommend children doing this on their own. ($20 per kayak for 1 hour)
We did a day trip to Fraser Island - I really recommend this. It was fantastic!
The tour bus/4WD drives you along the "beach HWY" - literally on the beach!
We saw dingo's and swam at Lake McKenzie - freshwater lake, was absolutely beautiful! Followed by a yummy BBQ lunch and a walk through the rainforest. ($170 per person)
The staff were very friendly, the location was amazing and the weather was perfect... I would definitely come back to Noosa!
