“Amazing family holiday”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

we had the most wonderful weekend as a family. Terrapin apartments were extremely comfortable and beautifully clean. Terrapin apartments are in short walking distance to Noosaville River and restuarants. The owners are extremely hospitable and ensured we had everything we needed. Cant wait to go back. Highly recommend it.

Our family stayed for 4 nights and enjoyed every minute. From our arrival which saw us recieve some freshly made brownies which the kids thought were wonderful, till the time we left we felt very comfortable and relaxed. Very clean, tidy with fantastic pool and BBQ facilities. Definitely will be back for more.

The owners are excellent, do everything to make your stay great. They are so helpful with information about how to get to places and great places to eat at. The apartments are very clean and have everything you need. This is the second time I have stayed there. I think I enjoyed it even more this time round. Not going to tell you the apartment number we had this time as I will be requesting it next time I get to go. Thanks for a great holiday there. Tina S

Room Tip: Corner suites are very sunny

Lovely owners, great apartments. We had noisy neighbours, luckily the owners went straight round to ask them to be quiet :-)
The apartment are very clean and have everything you need. We stayed here with our two children who were also very comfortable.

I stayed for 4 nights with my wife and baby and we had a great time. Caroline was very friendly and gave us some good tips. The townhouse style apartments were very spacious and well equipped downstairs has a large open plan lounge/diner/kitchen with everything we could have possibly needed, including dishwasher, microwave, all the utensils, cutlery and crockery you could need. Downstairs there was also a laundry with washer, dryer, toilet and shower. Upstairs the bedrooms were very comfortable, both rooms had queen beds, one with an additional single, and both rooms had ceiling fans and aircon.
Being just set back 100 metres off Gympie Terrace we were close enough to the river and restaurants, cafes etc, whilst being away from the traffic so that the apartments were very quiet and peaceful. Also, it was only about a 5 minute walk to Woolworths supermarket which was very handy.

I would definitely recommend this accommodation to anyone thinking of staying in Noosaville. Some other recommendations while you are there are the Raw Energy cafe, Maisies Seafood & Steakhouse, Beans & Bagels cafe (all on Gympie Terrance) and The Burger Bar, Natural Thai, and Amo Gelato (on Thomas Street).

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!
