“Beautiful and Quiet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2012

We spent 6 nights at Coolum Seaside and were not disappointed. The layout of the complex keeps the noise levels to a minimum.

Our 3 bedroom rooftop terrace had ample space for a family of 5 with 3 teenagers. The rooftop terrace was great for entertainment and all just five minutes walk from the heart of Coolum and supervised surf beach.

Make sure you book the tennis court well in advance as its gets popular on weekends and school holidays.

The managers were very friendly and helpful. Overall an excellent choice for a quiet break.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2012

We have just returned from a 3 night stay and was really impressed by this accommodation. We had a ground level 2br spa apartment adjacent to the lap pool and spa. The apartment itself had everything you could possibly want a top notch kitchen with all cooking utensils, Miele appliances and hide away washer and dryer. Very spacious lounge and decent size bedrooms, the master with ensuite and second bedroom with single beds. Plenty of room for 4 adults or 2 adults and 2 children. Great outside area with outdoor setting for enjoying meals outside. The only negative was being that close to the lap pool it was quite noisy with children in the pool but quietend down after 8.30 at night when the pool closed. It was school holidays so probably wouldn't be a problem all year round. Overall would definitely stay there again. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Choose a room not too close to the pools as it can get very noisy especially in school holidays.

Sandiebenson, Manager at Coolum Seaside Resort, responded to this review, 2 February 2017
Thank you for your great review. Yes during the school holidays it can be a little noisy around the pool. Out of holiday time we find it not at all noisy. We are pleased you liked your apartment. Remind us when you come again that you would rather be away from the pool. We would love to have you return. Many thanks for taking the time to review us. Murray and Sandie

Great accommodation for the price we paid, nicely appointed spacious rooms, short walk to cafes and restaurants. Choice of three lovely pools so always plenty of space and privacy for a couple. Reception (also manager or owner?) very gracious and welcoming. Will tell my friends.

We stayed there for a night in August - so couldnt enjoy all the facilities - but we had a great time and the the couple that run the place are wonderful and very understanding. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment and the rooms were clean and we had everything we needed. Thoroughly worth it.

Lovely clean appartments plenty of room and great facilities, with those little extras that often get forgotten about like umbrellas, bbq utensils and decent irons. Beach was just down the road about a five minute walk and supermarkets close by

Room Tip: Top floor apartments have great views

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

We (husband, self and adult daughter) spent three nights here in March. After a rather irritating delay (3.5 hours due to fog) we arrived much later than we had planned to and thus lost a half day. However, this was compensated for by the evening light on the beach and the warm water temperature. The resident managers were away, but there was a caretaker couple who were friendly and welcoming (even when we lost one of the keys and locked ourselves out).
The apartment was very well equipped and everything was spotless. There were many little extras, such as the bathrobes, the picnic basket, and the TV in the bedroom. I do feel that more milk could have been provided though. I note that some reviewers found the lack of service a disadvantage, but this is not advertised as a serviced apartment. Our experience was that management were there when needed - and it is possible to make the bed yourselves!

I have never seen so many BBQs in one place! Each of the 3 pool areas had several of them, and so did each apartment. Ours was on our very own rooftop terrace, with a large table, sun lounges and a great view of the far coastline and hills. The property has a tennis court, an internet lounge, a (fairly basic) gym and a large library with lots of magazines and books to read or swap. There is a lift which services all levels and goes to the underground carpark. The grounds are well-tended with lush tropical plantings

Coolum is an ideal spot, which typefies the laid-back beach culture. It is big enough to cater for most needs, with supermarkets, niche shops and restaurants (Harvest was exceptional), but without the overdevelopment and crowds of its neighbours - yes Noosa, this does mean you are too big and commercialised!) The beach is a long swathe of lovely, firm sand which leads to ideal surfing conditions with not too many dumpers. The water was a warm 24 deg. However, on a couple of days there was some nasty-looking scum on the water. But the sunrise and sunset photos taken by our daughter more than made up for that.

We would definitely stay there again and would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone wanting a relaxed holiday in beautiful surrounds.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the rooms with a rooftop terrace.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2011

I have stayed at a lot of Sunshine Coast locations and this is by far one of the best. The only thing stopping me from saying the best is that I love ocean views from my balcony and unfortunately at Coolum Seaside you can only see the ocean from the rooftop area. But don't let this stop you, as the patrolled beach is literally a stroll down the hill.

I have stayed here twice now and our apartments were modern with a big flat screen TV and spa overlooking the great lap pool, spa and tennis court. This pool is 1 of 3 in the complex. The bed was so comfortable and I just loved the little touches like bath robes and a cheese knife so you could enjoy some delightful nibbles on your balcony or up on your private roof top BBQ area.

Overall the thing that impressed me most was the service. The staff at reception were delightful and were more than happy to help out with local restaurant recommendations. There is a good selections of restaurants just a stroll down the hill, with the Coolum Surf club a great location for a delicious feed and magnificent ocean views.
