I took pot luck when I booked Terrapin apartments via the 'wotif' website as I didn't know anything about the place. On arrival, Margie, the manager, couldn't have been more helpful, with advice about where to eat, shop and ideas of places to visit in the area. I was planning to walk to the supermarket (only a 10 min walk) and she even offered to lend her wheelie so I didn't have to carry heavy bags on the way back.
The apartments are a small complex of about 12 fully self contained two bedroom two storey townhouse style buildings, set in well maintained gardens around a heated pool. Our apartment contained all you would need and more, the kitchen had decent itensils too! and there was a supply of games and DVDs in the lounge area. It was very clean and secure, with good furnishings and comfortable beds (all linen supplied).
For families with school age children, it is set back off the main road, and is quiet, the pool and barbeque area are on your doorstep, and its only a 2 min walk to the Noosa river, with playareas galore.
We hired a small boat from Pelican boat hire (just at the "Big Pelican") which was great fun, and we also recommend catching the Noosa ferry up to Hastings street( about a 20 min cruise), catching a bite to eat, then heading back by ferry as the sunsets....just beautiful.
We only had a 3 night break, but will definately be back for at least a week!
