Just returned from staying here, initially booked for 3 nights but extended to 5 after we realised what great value for money the apartments were! Carmel showed us to our unit and recommended places to eat and when we asked to extend our stay was very accommodating. The apartment was spotless, the pool was great, the location was great as it was set back from the main road so no noise but we were still only minutes away from supermarket, shops & cafes. 20 min drive to Noosa, Eumundi & Moololaba. Well worth every penny! Hopefully we'll be back next year!!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2012

Stayed 2-5 July 2012 in Unit 4. Our "unit" was a spacious 2 story house.

Downstairs: Internal access garage, bathroom with shower, 2 bedrooms (each with 2 single beds) and laundry.

Upstairs: Main bedroom with Queen bed, ensuite with shower, separate toilet, full size kitchen, dining and living spaces.

When we arrived we were greeted by Murray who, rather than just handing us our key and pointing towards our unit which is what happens at most accommodation I have visited, led the way to our unit, gave us the tour and was more than happy to answer any questions. As the weather was a bit cool at night he ensured we knew how to operate the heating (which was very much appreciated at night!).

Every time we passed Carmel and Murray they greeted us personally and were a huge help when it came to suggesting places to visit, and how to get there.

Although we were a group of 5 adults and did not require the beach toys and other equipment and facilities provided for children, we greatly enjoyed our stay and I highly recommend that anyone stay here whether with children or not.

I have nothing negative to say about Coolum Beach Getaway Resort :)

Room Tip: Unit 4 was great!

I had a problem, how to have a romantic wedding anniversay without the bride knowing beforehand. Carmel was the only one in the local area who was happy to accommodate my specific needs, top marks to her. The surprise in the fridge on our arrival was great.

Room Tip: Carparking is tight, talk to Murray or Carmel when making your booking.

Our family spent 10 nights at the Coolum Beach Getaway Resort and we had a fantastic time. First impressions - clean, safe, well-maintained and well-equipped. Murray and Carmel go to great lengths to make guests feel welcome. They maintain an active presence onsite, greet you by name and make every effort to ensure your stay is enjoyable. Our children loved the facilities, spent hours on the tennis court and in the pool/spa, all of which were within view from our balcony. The close proximity to the supermarket is a real bonus and with just a short walk to the beach, this resort offers the best of everything. We loved Coolum Beach, its relaxed feel and its central location on the Sunshine Coast. Overall, we had a great holiday and a huge part of that was the quality of our accommodation at Coolum Beach Getaway Resort. We are looking forward to returning in the future.

It was lovely to meet you and your beautiful family when you stay with us at Coolum Beach Getaway Resort. Great to read that you enjoyed your stay and everything was what you expected. We missed your children playing basketball and tennis and in the pool after your departure. We look forward to having you come and stay with us again before too long.

We recently booked a short stay and wish it could have been longer. The room and the property overall were fantastic. Our 2yo wanted to swim in the pool ALL the time and it was always well kept and tidy. Credit is also due to the Managers, Murry and his wife who made all of us feel welcome and make us want to definitely stay again when back in Coolum.

This was our second stay at the Coolum Beach Getaway Resort, and it won't be our last.
We originally searched the interent and found this met all our requirements, and on arrival we were not disappointed, hence we have now stayed there a second time.

The Pros for Coolum Beach Getaway Resort:
- Murray & Carmel are very friendly and helpful managers, this goes a long way to making your stay enjoyable and memorable.
- the complex is not a large one with hundreds of rooms where you are just another paying guest, here Murray & Carmel know your name and treat you like friends.
- close enough to the beach/shops to walk to, yet far enough away to be peaceful, quiet, and relaxing.
- Coolum is a nice small area to soak up the sun and relax, and only a short drive to larger shopping malls if required.
- rooms were well equipped and clean, and the layout suited us very well with the kids sleeping downstairs with their own bathroom.
- lots of free stuff for the kids to keep themselves entertained, tennis, basket ball, swimming, spa, and more.
- nice family sized pool with BBQ which is always found clean and ready to use.

The Cons:
Honestly can't think of any.

Room Tip: Rooms vary slightly in layout and size, so talk to Murray & Carmel first and they will be more t...
