“We keep coming back - Great place”
Reviewed 22 December 2012

We have been coming for a number of years now and love it. This time we were lucky to have our grandchildren with us and it is a great place for a family holiday. Best position in Coolum directly opposite the beach. The kids actually preferred to swim in the pool which is beautifully maintained and there are three good electric BBQ's in the grounds which was great for eating in options. Yes the Units are very individual in style but all are well maintained. The Reception staff are wonderful and very helpful.As they know their Units and the different styles etc I would always recommend booking directly with them. Being a little older building is in fact an advantage as the living area in these Units is quite large when compared to the newer units around. Coolum has everything you could want loads of coffee shope, restaurants close by. There is a new Coles and associated shops in the back street about a 10 minutes stroll from the apartments. We park the car and walk everywhere. Lots of good eateries catering for all tastes but one of our favourites is the Surf Club. Lovely place to sit and watch the surf on a summer evening.

Room Tip: book directly with reception staff

Nothing like the web photos. Unfortunately given they are privately owned there is obviously no covenant to bring the units to a similar standard. Very hit and miss. Was concerned what a "budget" room would be if this was "superior" quality for the price. Have been going to coolum since we were kids and whilst the building is iconic, internally the refurb will do wonders, if only some rooms were also bought to the same level. I can see good reviews so must have been unlucky with room selection on check in.

Coolum Caprice would have to be the best apartment location in Coolum. With views up and down the coast from most units and an easy walk to the patrolled surf beach this is a great spot.

Within 2 minutes you are on the cafe and restaurant strip.

Pool and grounds are very well maintained and the pool and spa is immaculate.

Service is friendly and very accommodating.

Only downside is the inconsistency of amenity from apartment to apartment. Some rooms are superbly finished whilst others are in need of a touch up. Don't let this put you off though as the positives of Coolum Caprice far outweigh the negative.

Would recommend and will return again.

We have a long association with Coolum Caprice. We were fortunate enough to be among the first guests to ever stay at the complex. We have been coming back at every opportunity ever since. I guess that pretty much speaks for itself. If you like great ocean views with walking distance to all the shops then Caprice ticks all the boxes. The complex is situated in the prime position of Coolum bar none. The beach is world class for both swimmers and walkers. On a recent visit I was lucky enough to witness logger head turtles hatching and making their way to the water. We will no doubt keep returning until we are too old to make the journey.

Graham & Glen Heap.

Room Tip: Be aware of surf and traffic noise when choosing a room.

Can not say a bad thing about the break, 4 nights 5 days of perfect bliss. Room was wonderful, Best beds away from home. Ocean view from 10th floor, some glorious sunrises, pool was perfect, you can almost jump from there to the beach, staff were wonderful if you needed anything, but that is rare. Plenty of shops, all within walking distance. Did not need to use the car. Will be back for sure. Many Thanks.

Room Tip: Can not go past the corner suites for views.

For a quick affordable place to stay during your Sunshine Coast holiday - Coolum Caprice is definitely somewhere to consider. The apartments are spacious and clean - some of the furnishings are a bit outdated. There was a lot of renovation / scaffolding while we were there but the Coolum Caprice is in a super convenient locatiion - 10 metres from the beach and cafes.

If you are parking on site - they have a funny system for car parking. They will give you an allocated spot but for 2 days in a row our car spot was taken.

Hello sweetpk,
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review on your recent stay with us, we are glad to hear you had an enjoyable trip. As our apartments here are all individually owned and therefore differently furnished to different people's tastes, we are very honest about our apartments and price them according to level of renovation and modernity.
Regarding our 'funny system' for car parking, each apartment at Coolum Caprice is allocated one undercover car space. Sometimes, guests ignore this rule and park where they like which causes disruption to other guests. Please always let Reception know if someone is parked in your space and we will do our best to have them moved or we will offer you another space.
Once again thank you for your review and we look forward to welcoming you back to Coolum Caprice in the future!
Kind Regards,
Emily Heap

I booked a unit with disabled shower facilities for my elderly sister and husband, to enjoy a 4week break away from home. They were super excited about being on the 8th floor and the view was magnificent, they saw whales, sky divers and just enjoyed the ocean. The walk to the shops was flat and across the road along the boardwalk was easily accessible for them with their walkers. The staff were lovely and accommodating to their needs. The unit was beautiful, clean and well set up. They visited the ice cream shop down the road everyday!! Coolum has such a relaxed atmosphere and they commented on how friendly the locals are. They had a great stay and will hopefully be back next year!

Hello Toni M,
Thank you for leaving such a great review on our property and for highlighting some of the many perks of staying with us here at Coolum Caprice. We are so lucky to have the best position and views in Coolum, being an easy walk to the beach and all shops and restaurants. The whales have been out in force this season and we have had many reported sightings of whales and dolphins not far out to sea!
We would love to have you and your family back again to enjoy all we have to offer.
Kind Regards,
Emily Heap
