“Awesome accommodation in Noosaville”
Reviewed 8 November 2013

Every time we come to Noosaville we stay at Terrapin apartments and we will continue to do so. The two bedroom apartments are perfect for families and are a short walk from cafe's, restaurants shops and the Noosa river. Our kids love to scooter or cycle along the foreshore whilst we can grab a coffee and enjoy the sunshine. There is plenty to do on the foreshore including ferry rides and buses to Noosa, boat hire, kids playgrounds and fishing. The apartments are on a side street so they are very quiet and the facilities are very clean and well maintained. There is free wifi and security gate at night as well as undercover off street parking. This is not one of those big resorts so there are not a lot of people around. The hosts make you fell very welcome and are quick to respond to emails and any requests.

Room Tip: All units are a similar configuration.

We've been staying at Terrapin with our two children for over 5 years now. We go for two weeks every year and to be honest, we wouldn't stay anywhere else. Terrapin is a short 2 minute walk to the beautiful Noosa river and only a 3 minute drive to flashy Hastings street and the popular surf beaches. The bus stop is also just across the road. The Managers are great people and will do everything they can to make your stay hassle free. Caroline and Mick are more than just on site Managers, a few days in their care and you will have made great friends, really lovely people. The apartments are spotless, modern and very well equipped. The pool area is tidy, spacious and the BBQ area a pleasure to use. It's a great place for kids as the pool is shaded and surrounded by a lovely grassed area so you can relax on your verandah and watch the kids play safely.
Terrapin is also away from the main traffic area so the only sound you will hear is the birds.
Not long now till we visit Terrapin again and the whole family is really looking forward to it.

Room Tip: All rooms are great

We've had had two amazing holiday's at the Terrapin apartments and are looking forward to our next stay in December 2013. The location is perfect for us as a small family. Peaceful and relaxing yet only a short stroll to all the great restaurants that Noosaville has to offer and a 5 minute drive to the hustle and bustle of Hastings Street and Main Beach.

The Managers, Caroline and Mick, can not do enough to make your stay a great one and we always receive a very warm welcome. The apartments are spacious and very clean. The tropical gardens are well kept and the pool beautiful and refreshing.

Haven't a bad word to say about the Terrapin Apartments and I hope we will be making many more return visits in the future.

My sister and I stay at Terrapin approximately monthly for a two (2) day break from reality. We have our favourite unit and Caroline does everything she can to make sure we get the same unit every time. The unit is fabulous...bright and airy and very comfortable.. We have extended family in the area who visit and who are also made extremely welcome. We spill out onto the lawn and set up under the shady tree and the day floats around us. Terrapin is close to everything - eateries, shops, local attractions and of course the beautiful Noosa River is at the bottom of the street. There is also a bar-b-que area next to the pool which is perfect if you want to stay put. I highly recommend the apartments for your stay, long or short you are sure to enjoy. Janice G

Room Tip: Rooms on the far side of the unit block have a lovely lawn to enjoy and there is no traffic noise.

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
