“Great Views,Shame about the Weather.”
Reviewed 17 November 2012

I organised this weekend in unit 21 as a surprise for my husbands birthday,telling him 1 hour before check-in we were staying down the road.We drove such a long way to get here,all the way from Pelican Waters.The unit was lovely and views great.Unfortunately my idea of chilling out with a few friends having drinks & nibbles on the balcony looking across the passage was blown away and rained out.We still enjoyed our stay & hope next time the sun will appear.
Michael was very helpful and friendly.We will try again another time for good weather.

Room Tip: Unit 21 was good.

We had a 3 bedroom and 2 bedroom apartment for 8 nights for the duration of the badminton tournament at the sports centre in Caloundra. A great location and very comfortable to suit our chilling out after our games. Judy was very helpful with recommending restaurants and organizing shuttles to our functions. Would certainly recommend to friends looking to stay at friendly accommodation.

I stayed with 5 friends, in an apartment at Windward Passage, for 8 nights. We were in Caloundra for a Ladies Badminton Jamboree. There were 350 women in town to participate. From the moment I booked the accommodation last November, Judi and Ross have been extremely helpful, answering all my queries promptly. Our unit was well appointed, and we had fantastic views of the Pumicestone Passage from the spacious verandah. Comparing notes with other women, we certainly felt we had exceptional value for money. The property was in a fabulous location, within walking distance to the shops/restaurants in Caloundra, and a short walk to supermarkets. Will definitely stay there again!

Reviewed 8 October 2012

After some research on Trip Advisor and the website for this place, we decided to book 7 days in an 7th floor Executive apartment - watch the footy finals on the 40" plasma TV (I am a football tragic), relax in the spa with a good bottle of wine, and enjoy the views, balconies etc.
The good - excellent views, peaceful, great balconies, good secure lock up parking for my vehicle and the property is certainly well maintained.
The disappointments - the 40" plasma TV was a quite old 29" CRT monstrosity, there was no spa, the air-conditioned apartment had no air-conditioning (we did not need it), it has a microwave but no microwave utensis for cooking.
On day two we mentioned this to Ross who told us that there was no plasma TV, spa or air-conditioning in our unit (Unit 23) - even though this is what is advertised on their website, what was confirmed on our booking and what we paid for.
These may seem like little things but to a football tragic on grand final weekend, the TV was important. To a couple who work hard, relaxing in a spa together while on holiday is something we look forward to and always search for.
The grading would certainly be higher if we received what was advertised, confirmed and paid for.

Room Tip: Room 23 is certainly not a 7th floor Executive apartment as advertised

We stayed at windward passage for the first time on our recent holiday, and we will stay there again in the future. Ross and judi were fantastic, nothing was too much of a problem for them.
The unit had everything you needed, and the views were fantastic.
Would highly recommend.
