“A Perfect Getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2013

I, along with my husband and 4 children, have been fortunate enough to stay at Costa Nova on two occasions to date and have, after each stay, booked for the following year. We have stayed both in Apartment 17 and 18 - penthouses on the top floor - but just so affordable we wouldn't stay anywhere else. Apartment 17, with its own private lift, spacious and airy bedrooms, laundry and living areas that open onto a deck with 180 degree views of Sunshine Beach is pure heaven. Even if the weather turns nasty you can drink in those views from the warm, bubbling waters of the 6 man spa on the deck. Apartment 18 is almost identical ex-the private lift and with a few more stairs to climb until you reach that amazing view. However, with the array of fantastic restaurants within 1 minutes walking distance (the kids especially love the Deli and its gorgeous gelato offerings) sometimes a little extra exercise is a good thing! You can leave your car parked in the secure car park for the entire stay (as we usually try to do) and walk everywhere - it is without the doubt the most convenience holiday accommodation we have ever stayed in. Friends that have visited, have not wanted to leave. Glen and Patsy (hosts) go out of their way to ensure your stay will be a great one everytime. As with all other positive Costa Nova reviews, the story is the same, once you arrive and unpack and drink in that view .... you know you are on holidays. Cannot wait for December this year when we can again get to live like the rich and famous in Apartment 17 with champagne tastes on a beer budget!

Room Tip: No such thing as a bad room at Costa Nova. Every apartment has amazing views.

We just spent a beautiful week at these apartments. We had an amazing view just overlooking the beach. The apartment was clean, modern and spacious. It had all the modern conveniences. We loved the location- just opposite the beach and you could walk ( up 200 steps) to the national park. We don't like Noosa any more- too busy, crowded and overpriced. This was perfect - peaceful, quiet but still has 7 restuarants and the Sunshine Surf club if you need more action. It's close enough to Noosa+ Noosaville to drive or there is a bus service. We walked along the beach every morning and did some lovely day trips. We will definitely come again!

Room Tip: Check the website to view the rooms.

We stayed in one of the Costa Nova penthouses recently and it was fantastic. Large spacious apartments with spectacular views of the water. The unit is self contained with everything you would need for a vacation.

The location is quiet with not much entertainment except for several nearby restaurants but you are very close to Noosa and many other locations so will not suffer for lack of choice.

Room Tip: Go the penthouses to get your own spa. Also Unit 17 has internal lift access. Probably a good thin...

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2012

Our whole family stayed for a family wedding (2x 3 bdrm appts) and were suitably impressed. They made sure my grandparents had a room where they could walk straight into the shower. Our rooms were spacious and tidy. Amazing views of the beach and ocean. Plenty of space for everyone and room for visitors to come and hang out. Wonderful sea breezes.
So close to restaurants and surf club.
Only one car park per apartment which can be a pain; however some onsite visitor parking, plus parking across the street which is usually available on weekdays.
Some small issues with mould however you expect that this close to the sea.
Remember these are self contained apartments so things like taking out your rubbish and turning on the dishwasher before you leave are standard. Be prepared to bring extra toiletries and supplies if staying more than 4 days or so (loo paper etc) There is no room service, however a list of nearby restaurants/supermarkets is here for you.
Definetly on the return list for my family.

Room Tip: every room has amazing views. The 3bdrm appts have more space than the two bedroom ones.

We have stayed here 4 times over past 4 years and always enjoy the apartments and sunshine beach. The apartment do all vary so its good to look at the website for internal setups and views for each apartment. Car parking underneath is easy and safe. The beach is just across a small rd and great restaurants and cares just 30 m around the corner. Whales to watch over breakfast on the balcony. A great location. Pool area is clean and has a BBQ .

Room Tip: Look on the website for the internal views and outlooks. They vary and so does the price. The sun...

The outstanding feature of the Costa Nova Apartments is surely the location - directly across the road from the patrolled surf beach, immediately across the road from the Surf Club, the local shopping centre literally out the side gate, a lovely park area across the road and not to mention kilometres of beautiful beach on your doorstep!

We were welcomed on a Sunday (which we weren't expecting, as the office is usually closed) and shown extensively around the complex and our apartment. We were pleased with the customer service extended to us on our arrival.

We stayed in Apartment 11 and there was little to fault about it. It was clean, tidy and well equipped. There was plenty of kitchen utensils and crockery (and all of it clean! - the exception rather than the norm in our experience of self-contained apartments) The apartment was a good size for our family of four.

The view over the beach and water was breathtaking. (Yes, there are power poles across the road, but aren't there power poles everywhere? They certainly didn't impede on the view at all.) We were fortunate enough to enjoy endless whale sightings every day and even some dolphins - all from our apartment!

Pros:
- great location, great views
- clean, tidy, well-equipped apartment
- good (although, not huge) pool and spa area
- only short trip to Noosa central

Cons:
- access to apartments (only access is via stairs, not ideal with luggage)
- balcony for this apartment was smaller and a bit open to neighbouring balcony)
- television could be better (remote not easy to use)
- blinds to main bedroom aren't great, so expect an early wake up each morning

We would definitely return to Costa Nova - hard to fault this great location!

Loved the Costa Nova. Secure underground parking, oceanview condos suitable to large family group. Very friendly staff and short walk to lovely restaurants. Fabulous choice!
