I had never been to Noosa on the Sunshine Coast before and having looked at various places to stay on Tripadvisor, I found Wolngaren Resort which was the only place I had yet come across with no ratings below very good. The owner was looking after a child when we arrived, so gave me the key and directions and said that we could sort out the formalities later, which suited me. Our place was next to a half sized tennis court which I never tried, and was very close to the heated pool and spa.
I had been keen to try out the spa, but it was closed for repair. The heated pool did look inviting, but it was rather exposed to the cold winds which were blowing that weekend, so discretion became the better part of valour.
The unit that we stayed in was very nice. I could have comfortably lived there on a permanent basis. Downstairs was a well appointed kitchen which a microwave, stove, dish washer and plenty of plates, cups, saucers, knives, forks, pots, pans, well you get the picture.
There was a small dining area next to the kitchen and further in was a lounge area with a tv, foxtel and a dvd player. Not all foxtel channels were enabled, but enough to be interesting.
Upstairs was the bathroom/toilet/laundry, and also a bedroom with a good sized and comfortable bed.
We used the unit as a base and stayed there for three nights. At $130 per night off season is pretty good for what you get.
One drawback was that the free Wi-Fi offered was a bit on the flaky side. My iPad worked ok, but neither of our iPhones were able to establish a reliable connection.
Also, for older travellers with mobility problems, the stairs may cause you trouble, so a single storey unit would be advised.
All in all, a nice place reasonably priced with friendly staff.
