Coolum Beach Getaway Resort
Reviewed 14 October 2013

We had a wonderful stay at Coolum Beach Getaway Resort. The location was great, being a short walk from town, but still quiet and relaxing. A short walk to the beaches meant we could go for a swim and time in the sun but still be home for lunch, then back to the beach if we wanted to do it all again in the afternoon!

The apartments were clean and really felt like a home. Plenty of facilities available and if we needed anything Carmel and Murray would happily help us out! Murray even wasn't upset when we used the sparkling clean BBQ after he had just finished the annual clean!!

We had a great stay and having the local knowledge of Carmel and Murray was extremely useful. They had advice on where to go for shopping, the best fresh fruit, where to go for dinner and where to find the best quiet beaches. We ended up going to the Eumundi markets, Yandina and even had a special lunch at Spirit House, all things we wouldn't have known about without their recommendations.

Thanks again, we hope to come back next year!

Only one street away from the north end of Coolum Beach. Within walking distance of the local shops and supermarket and yet such a wonderfully relaxing quiet resort. The units are well equipped and kept spotlessly clean, with balconies overlooking the pool and tennis court. Murray is the consummate host - friendly, helpful and with a wealth of knowledge of local attractions and restaurants.
Only one word of caution; the units are town-house style, with the living area and bedrooms on the first floor above the garage, so are not easily accessible by the elderly and disabled. For anyone of normal physical ability, we fully recommend this resort as the perfect Sunshine Coast retreat.

Room Tip: The east facing units enjoy morning sun on the balconies and pleasant shade in the afternoon.

We stayed for 8 nights at the Coolum Beach Getaway Resort. The apartment was clean, cooking, laundry facilities and a lock up garage were provided. The location was fabulous, just one street back from the main street and was in walking distance to the beach, shops & restaurants. Carmel and Murray were wonderful hosts. We would highly recommend these apartments. Lisa & Mick

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!!

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.
