“Excellent accommodation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2013

We were a group of four friends sharing accommodation. These apartments had everything we required, roomy comfortable rooms, washing machine, dishwasher etc & all very clean. Caroline was very friendly & made us so welcome. She even baked a special treat for one of our group who was celebrating her birthday. These apartments are very central, handy to lovely walks along the river, short walk to restaurants & shops. We will definitely stay here on our next trip to the area.

Huge thanks to Caroline for welcoming us at such short notice to Terrapin Apartments. Caroline was such a fantastic host, we stayed for just 1 night but would have stayed longer if we could. The apartments were very clean, spacious with good comfortable furniture, TV, DVD player and iphone dock with speaker, kitchen was fabulous, well appointed and had all those knick knacks that other places forget like a corkscrew etc. The bedrooms were just great, again very clean and just exactly what we needed. The kids bedroom had a queen bed and a single bed and they decided to share the queen bed and pretended they were camping, and they all made the most of the pool being heated too. The complex was just off one of the main streets in Noosaville with restaurants, shops and supermarkets just a short stroll away. Thomas Street in particular has lots of choice for restaurants and come breakfast time then just stroll along Gympie Terrace and you won't be disappointed.

Caroline was very flexible with our check out time which was really helpful. We will definitely be staying at The Terrapin Apartments again, it is now our No. 1 choice for staying in Noosa! Well done guys, you are doing a super job. Thank you for making our stay so lovely and relaxing.

Room Tip: All the rooms are fab!

Booked at the last minute but received great service from both Caroline and Mick. The apartments are well situated and close to all amenities. They are very spacious, well maintained and clean. Everything is provided to enable you move in and relax.
Good value for money and I recommend this to anyone who is visiting Noosa.

A rather last minute booking but received a very warm welcome from Caroline, who remembered me from last year. These apartments are real little gems, tucked away from the main hustle bustle of Gympie Terrace, they offer peace and quiet while being within a short walk from all the local amenities. It was great being able to walk to dinner on Gympie Terrace in one direction, and to Woolworths etc in the other, this is such a convenient location.

The apartments are spotlessly clean and well maintained. The kitchen is very well equipped, although I did not do any actual cooking on this visit - the local restaurants are too good! It was particularly cold during the 4 days of our visit and the two small heaters provided were barely adequate, but this is a bit unusual. There were a couple of minor issues with the apartment but when mentioned to Caroline, she was as ever, very apologetic and obliging. I am looking forward to visiting again next year and hopefully staying for much longer.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the renovated units.

This was a return visit to Terrapin Apartments for me and this time I was accompanied by family members from the UK. From previous experience I knew that the apartments were close to everything that we needed. We ate at the excellent restaurants facing the Noosa River, took the informative ferry ride into Hasting Street and swam in the ocean as well as walking in the national park. Both myself and my overseas relations were very impressed with the standard of the accomodation and service provided by the very friendly managers Caroline and Mick who also arranged a booking for a day trip to Fraser Island. Value for money was tremendous, with well maintained units immaculately presented. We would certainly recommend this accomodation for a great holiday destination.

This was a last minute booking five days before we arrived on a busy weekend for Noosa (USM Sports event). The booking was processed smoothly, and upon arrival we found out we'd been upgraded. The two bedroom townhouse was very impressive and well furnished. Knowing that we'd need a little bit of extra time to check out the following day due our event the owners were very good about allowing us to do this.

The complex even had a shaded pool that we used for a quick recovery before the drive home.

Room Tip: Deluxe room was beautiful.

After booking an apartment elsewhere in Noosa only to find the booking was cancelled at the last minute the very helpful visitor centre found us an apartment in the Terrapin complex. We were relieved to find a lovely clean apartment with all the facilities we required. The apartments are close to the river & there are lots of places to eat within 5 minutes walk. The management were friendly & helpful.
