“Family holiday at Offshore Noosa Resort”
Reviewed 12 July 2013

We recently spent 8 nights at Offshore Noosa Resort in Noosaville. We stayed in #2, a 3 bedroom ground floor river facing apartment. Four adults, a preschooler and baby twins. The apartment was modern, clean and had great facilities available. It is directly opposite the river, a 2 minute walk to the riverfront and Gympie road with all it's lovely restaraunts and cafe's. The pool area is child friendly with a child's pool and spa available. The groundfloor unit was perfect for us with our young children. The outside terrace is huge with a small garden which the kids played in all day. A small 'beach' is just opposite and we were able to play on the beach, have a swim and return all in short amount of times just walking instead of taking the car.

Negatives:
Unit 2 is located directly next to the Elvis takeaway and from 8:00 - 8:30pm each night there is lots of banging and scraping while they pack up. My parents stayed in the main room so this wasn't a probem but would be if you had a baby or young child in your room. It is also located opposite the main road so is quite noisy.
The door in one of the rooms was broken and it was difficult to close properly without making a noise.
The smoke alarm is extremely sensitive (and loud) and went off just opening the oven.

Other than that a wonderful stay and we will definately be back.

Room Tip: #2 is a great room for families. The groundfloor unit provides security and the courtyard and garden...

We stayed here in May 2013 after being recommended Offshore Noosa by some friends. Have to say that it is a pretty good option if someone is looking for a holiday rental.

We were looking for a 3 bed apartment and were recommended by friends to try #23. That was booked but #29 was available and suggested by the management.

And yes, like many reviews have said the views from the top floor over the road to the river was great. Very beautiful, almost worth the price. This added to the fact it's a great location and has good common facilities (outdoor heated pool, spa and BBQ) means this accomodation choice should be high up your list.

Why a great location? There is a small beach across the road on the river which was ideal for young kids to play (a bit cold for mine in May though). There is an array of restaurants within walking distance that make providing food for the family pretty easy. And last but not least the ferry stop on the other side of the road which provides the most picturesque transport to Noosa main.

The apartment was reasonably well decorated, maintained and equipped. Not spectacular but a pretty high standard. I would say that we stayed during a cold snap in May and found the apartment a bit cold with limited options to heat but I guess the vast majority of guests will be here when it is warmer.

The heated pool was warmed but only just so that it was tolerable for a few minutes in the cold. The spa was much nicer.

Despite asking we found that there was very little flexibility for a late checkout even with no guests coming in that day due to the schedule of the cleaners offshore noosa used so do not bank on a late checkout. Though they do allow you to use the facilities after you have checked out.

To those that want to stay in Noosaville this is a really good option. But if you do not know Noosa I would suggest trying to stay closer to Hastings Street where the main beach and action is closeby.

Room Tip: Get the top floor (3 room apartments #23 & #29) for the best views

Our family of two adults and three children have now stayed at the Offshore five times, either in riverfront or river view apartments and it never disappoints. Accommodation is of a high standard, location is wonderful, and Leanne and Fred are wonderful hosts. Cannot comment on room service or children facilities as they are not an option. However, the pool is great for the kids being lagoon style, and Leanne is only too happy to provide noodles etc for the kids.Sharon and Brett

We stayed in Apartment 15 which is starting to feel a little tired; my sister and her hubby were in Apartment 27 which is lovely and has obviously been refurbished. The views are lovely from both rooms, 27 is on the top floor enabling you to see out to the ocean.
Leanne was very friendly and most helpful (even when we set off the smoke alarm, oops :)) and the grounds and pool area are beautiful.
If you prefer to have a sleep in I would suggest forgoing the view and booking a room overlooking the pool as the street sweeper (such a tidy town) and rubbish trucks (lots of clanging bottles) will definitely wake you up.
We would definitely stay at Offshore again.
P.S I am not sure what facilities Offshore has for young children or for fitness other than the pool so I am unable to comment on these.

Room Tip: There aren't many signs around the complex and I would advise asking where pedestrian exits, lif...

To stay here depends on what you want from your holiday.

The good points.

We stayed in Unit 25 which was really well decked out and a pleasure to stay in.
The views over the river were great
The access to restaurants meant we did not have to drive.
The ferry into Noosa itself was a great way to see Noosa
Very central, bus stop outside the door, walking paths, calm water swimming, boat hire etc great for young families

The not so good ( but not enough to deter from returning)

The unit has bi-fold glass doors that needed fixing for our visit but i am sure that will be rectified. However, we could not leave them open at night as there was no other security screens. This meant that you had to use the fans at night which was ok with us or the aircon. It was still a little stuffy though.

The unit overlooked the river, but also a busy roundabout (and bus stop). So, if you are the type of traveler to have the afternoon nap, probably won't happen in this unit. If you are out and about during the day, no problems as it does settle down in the evenings. They did have other units that may not be affected by the road noise so best to ask the managers before you book as to the type of holiday you are looking for

The managers were excellent and friendly and only too happy to help

The unit had almost everything in it apart from a champagne stopper, but, hey, it meant we had to drink the whole bottle!!

Room Tip: North east aspect is always best on Sunshine Coast

We stayed at Offshore for the 2nd time recently & it was just as good as the previous visit 6 months ago. Everything is spotless in the apartment and the grounds around the pools are lush and green. Leanne & Fred are great hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. We wouldn't stay anywhere else !.

We stayed at Offshore Noosa back in 2009 and it truly was a top resort. The 2 bedroom apartment was clean, well equipped and so very spacious.
The pools and BBQ area is great for families and very well maintained.
The resort is ideally located close to shops and a big choice of good quality restaurants, all within walking distance.
And situated directly across the road from the river, boating opportunities abound.
I really would recommend staying at Offshore Noosa, for couples and families alike.

Room Tip: Ground floor units would be more suitable for families with yound children using strollers etc.
