“A return visit after 8 years”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

Our family recently returned to the Getaway Resort after staying there 8 yrs ago. The stay was just as good this time as it was the last. Nothing was too much trouble for Murray, who arranged an early check in. The facilities were clean and of a good standard. The lockup garage was excellent, although getting in was a bit tight. We will definitely be back next time we're in Coolum.

After a break of 8 years, our growing family of 5 returned to the Sunshine Coast area. We were welcomed with open arms by Murray to these wonderful apartments. Our flight arrived in Brisbane very early in the morning and an early check was no problem at all. The apartment was very clean and neat and fitted us all in perfectly. The facilities around the resort were of a good standard and it included a full tour desk. The resort is very close to the Main Street of Coolum with plenty of shops and eateries within easy walking distance. I would definitely recommend this Resort.

We could not get over the welcome! Brilliant accommodation, we felt very spoilt, so did the kids aswell. Everyone we meet were very friendly and were very helpful to suggest places to visit or eat at. We loved it soo much that we are planning our next trip. Thank you Carmel and Murray can't wait to see you again!

We stayed here for a week recently and liked this place. We are a family of three (Mum and Dad and our 16 yr old Son), and after a bot of searching around we thought we'd give the Getaway Resort a go, and we are glad we did.

This place has about 20 units set around a nice pool area which also has a half court tennis area. Our apartment was No. 6 and it was really well appointed. The living area is upstairs and each unit has a small laundry including a drier. The kitchenette is fully set up including a dishwasher. Our dishwasher leaked a bit, but not a big issue.

Both upstairs and downstairs bedrooms have a small ensuite. There seemed to be plenty of hot water. The TV has Foxtel. Our free to air TV died one night but the on site manager (very nice fellow) had the antennae rebooted pretty quickly. The apartment includes a lockup garage, a bit tight to get into, but if you careful it's OK.

The location is only about a 500 metre walk from the main shops and about 250 metres from the Coles and newsagents. Being back off the main road it's a bit quieter. The walk down to the beach is also about 250 meters, via the pathway down around the north western corner of the caravan park (just go down past the fitness track on the grassed area - you'll see the pathway there). For the price, this place is pretty good.

Enjoy!

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
