“Fantastic location not a resort”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2012

We stayed in apartment 8 it was dark and it smelt some items in the kitchen had dust on them or had mould the dinning table had 4 stools and a glass top not good for a family the apartment was very dated and the light switches very low also not good for a toddler there was no main couch just a chez lounge a small 2 seater and chairs but the lounge was an awkward shape so we had to move things around to make it ok but it was still far from ideal in this apartment there was no private outdoor space no fencing between apartments also the gardens are in need of a lot of work as is the paving on the up side the management has been fantastic very helpful we asked for a porter cot in our apartment Brooke also put a high chair in our apartment fantastic staff if the resort was renovated to at least 3 star I would be back.

Have just returned from a 2 week stay at these holiday apartments, great value, quiet accomodation, fully equiped apartments, washer, dryer etc. A 2 minute walk to Rivers edge and restaurants. 3rd stay will definately be back in a year! Great weather and friendly hosts.

Room Tip: Corner units very quiet and private. We stayed in unit 9.

Stayed here recently. Rooms are comfortable although some what old and need to be updated, especially the bathroom upstairs. Great facilities in rooms though with two bathrooms, washing machine, drier etc included. No TV in the rooms though. Parking is a tight squeeze and difficult with a big vehicle. Staff were friendly. Close to the water and cafes. Five minutes from Hastings St. One of only a few places that will let you stay one night.

Thanks so much for your positive review. We have just moved some of the garden beds to make some of the parking easier. We do have visitor parking spaces for the larger vehicles. We only have the one tv in the lounge room, not in the bedrooms.

I stayed here while participating in a cycling event. It's not quite so much a resort, as a motel, but it has a pool, sauna, small games room, and BBQ facilities.
It has no room service except for delivery services.
However it is very close to the Noosaville cafe/shops area so we had no problems finding excellent places to eat.
The accomodation was in a sort of mini-cabin. They have a double bed-room, second bedroom with 2 beds, and a loft with more beds. Some of the facilities in our room were a bit run down.
The staff were very friendly, and the price was very reasonable.
I'd stay again if I went back to Noosa.

In feb/march we stayed at the Pelican Beach Resort in Noosaville.
In retrospective, it has been the best accommodation of our entire holiday!
The resort is only a 5 minute walk away from the Noosa river front with lots of BBQ areas and restaurants and coffee shops.

In the apartment we had our own 'everything': 2 bedrooms, kitchen, living room, balcony, bathroom with washer & dryer. The pool area also features a jacuzzi and sauna (and BBQ & tennis court).

The staff are very friendly and love to tell you about things to see. They also have a good selection of movies you can just borrow for the night.

The only thing missing? Free wifi (We found out that it is available in the coffee shop around the corner).

Stayed for around 4-5 days at Easter and had a newborn with us. Apartment had nice new furnishings and plenty of space. kitchen & bathroom were great, all we needed to bring was luggage and food. Got corner unit so had good privacy. Short lovely walk to riverfront cafes and shops, ideal for the sunset stroll and an ice cream. Went for a yummy breakfast at Vanilla Cafe Bar located at end of street and if you want some fish and chips, takeaway joint is also only a short walk away. Great place for a family getaway.

This resort had EXCEPTIONALLY friendly staff/owners, who were very laid back and helpful. The location is perfect for access to shops, public transport, restaurants/cafes and the ferry, without all the noise.
The value is also up there for what you get.
This resort is made up of apartments, each individually owned and furnished differently. We stayed in apartment 18, which was spacious and clean, with all amenities. Bed was a bit uncomfortable, but would still return.

Room Tip: Ask the friendly owners about what you need, as each apartment could have differences based on their...
