What a great find. As with other reviewers, we found this excellent modern comfortable apartment style accommodation unmatched in Yeppoon. Whilst we were unable to get an ocean view room, due to them being booked out - no wonder it's so popular- we had a most enjoyable two night stopover.

Stayed: July 2013, traveled as a couple

We just spent a long weekend at the Echelon..How fabulous ! We had a 4th floor ocean view apartment for 3 nights. Very modern with every amenity you could possibly want. The location was perfect - right on the beach with restaurants on the ground floor and still within walking distance to the local shops and bars.
Can't wait to go back !

Room Tip: If you want a bigger outdoor terrace book one of the lower floors

We had a third floor ocean view apartment (305) for two nights. We found the staff friendly and welcoming. The apartment was stunning as was the view. Worth every bit of its four star rating and more. Thank you again for everything.

This is incorrectly listed on Tripadvisor as a hotel, whereas its a very modern, multi-story, well appointed holiday rental.

There are a variety of room sizes to choose from. If you are a couple you can elect to have a one bedroom, or, if a family can pay for a larger unit.

All rooms have modern appliances in the kitchen and DVD, Satellite TV and stereo. TV's are in the bedrooms as well, but a smaller, wall unit.

Echelon is located in the heart of Yeppoon and the building accommodates a licenced Coffee Club and Japanese restauant.

Its merely a 2 minute walk to the main retail shops and restaurants. There are a variety of additional eateries close by including take-away for those who want to eat in, or the local yacht club across the road has a comprehensive menu as well.

There is a mall shopping complex a three minute drive away which includes supermarket and a variety of other outlets including clothing, chemist, bookstore etc.

There are some excellent tourist sites close to Yeppoon including the amazing Peter Brock car museum (truly astonishing with over 20 of Brockies race cars), a croc farm and cave complex.

The main boat launch ramp in the Yeppoon harbour is 15 minutes drive.

The local visitor centre will help with tourist info.

Room Tip: You can book a room with a sea view

I stay at Echelon each time I visit Yeppoon. The apartments are very well appointed and comfortable and the location is spot on - most of what you need is in walking distance. The only issues are the road noise when staying in the beachfront apartments & the window coverings do not block out the light - rather annoying when you want a sleep in! With regard to the Managers, I have always found them lovely to deal with - they are friendly & approachable. Tip: Ask for a higher floor apartment for the best views.

Thanks for the feedback. Your absoultley right about our location, Echelon is across the road from the beach with excellent eateries on our doorstep, so no need to drive anywhere.
Please ask reception on your next stay for a room on a higher level, this wont be a problem. The only noise you will hear from here is the ocean.

We arrived in Yeppoon late in the evening, 5:30 pm, with no reservations to any apartments in town and tried the Echelon first.

Our intention was to stay for 3 nights then travel on further north.

They could only accomodate us for one night in a ocean front room that suited our budget ( the Penthouses were available, but much more expensive than we wanted to pay)

We were given a room on the third floor overlooking the ocean and what a fantastic room and view it was.It was very clean and modern, very well appointed and the entire complex was just 100 %, especially being centrally located within easy walking distance to eateries and of course that magnificent beach.
Secure parking and a secure apartment and key smart lifts, all apartments had security doors.

The Manager Karen was very sympathetic to our wishing to stay in Yeppoon for 3 days and offered us a late checkout as only one night was available.

We checked out the next morning in hunt for accomodation around the local area to which we were pleasantly surprised by a call from Steve the manager, who was profusely apologetic saying that there was an apartment available for the original duration we asked for not visible to them due to a website IT malfunction.

We loved the area so much that we wanted to stay an additional couple of days on top of the initial 3 to which Steve said it wouldn't be a problem and offered us the apartment, ocean view at a reduced rate than the first night.

We extended a further couple of nights again making our stay there 8 nights in total.

Karen and Steve who are the resident managers were extremely helpfull during our stay and would always offer advice or find out if they didn't know the answer to our queries.

We have every intention of staying there again, and no hesitation in recommending these apartments and resident managers.

Thanks Karen and Steve , we had a wonderful holiday ( celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary at your complex and the Megalomania restaurant in town )

Room Tip: Rooms on the third floor with ocean views were magnificent.

We stayed for one night and wished we could have stayed longer. The location is fabulous being just across the road from the Beach. We loved the huge apartment - everything was so clean and new. The staff were very helpful as we had to amend our original booking and they were very accommodating. Definately would highly recommend this complex for any travellers.
