“Great Accommodation”
Reviewed 21 March 2013

Thank you to Shirley for organising our group of girls for our weekend away. We had a 3 bedroom sub penthouse, the room in the apartment is fantastic each with their own ensuite. Great location, close to everything.

Room Tip: If you have couples, go the sub penthouse....each with their own ensuite.

Thank you Mandy for your kind words in your review.
Girls week-ends and Hens Parties are always very popular here - they always have so much fun with the coffee shops and boutiques and restaurants and the beach.
Yes, the Sub-Penthouses offer couples great facilities with their own space.
We look forward to welcoming you here again.
Kind regards

Definitely can't beat the location. Easy and relaxing to come in and out of. Noise was not given how central it was. We walked everywhere.

Don't stay here if you are looking for luxury. It is definitely bare basics, and we did not find it very clean when we arrived (hair in shower drain). Little things like no soap to wash your hands with in the separate toilet and only limited toilet paper for a 5 night stay for 6 people. The basin in the separate toilet was was like the tiny tiny cheap ones you may see in a public beach or national park toilet. T.v. was nice, good reception, but was really low, basically on the ground. Not a big deal, but again it is the little things that add up.

Staff were very friendly. Rooms were basic basic but fine. If someone came in to upgrade a few small things, this place could definitely be rated high. We did enjoy our stay, but it could be so much nicer.

Thank you for your response. All feedback is appreciated.
I have checked with housekeeping and they apologise is everything was not how it should have been. "Human error", but still no excuse for the apartment not being how it should have been for your stay.
Element on Coolum Beach offers fully self contained apartments and all guests have "starter packs" in their apartment for their immediate enjoyment. The supermarkets are close by for all of your ongoing grocery items.
Refurbishments are occurring in apartments as they can be arranged, so if you choose to stay with us again, you will see some changes.
Kind regards

I have stayed at several places at Coolum over the years but this was by far the best. It may have been a little bit pricier then others however not significant and well worth the extra dollars.

Being super keen to start my weeks holiday I called on the off chance to see if I could check in earlier. Shane (property manager) answered the call and was very friendly and very helpful - I was able to check in an hour earlier. Great start to the Holidays.

The apartment was a great size - very spacious and was extremely clean. We had a two bedroom unit with two bathrooms. It was fantastic.

Even on check out, property managers were super friendly.

I will be definately staying here again next Christmas and possibly even sooner.

Thank you for your review.
Our apartments are very spacious, which is just wonderful for families on holidays. The apartments do not feel cramped at all and the second bedroom and bathroom are away from the main suite and lounge.
The complex was originally built to be residential, but became a mixture of residential and holiday letting.
Shane is always very helpful and will assist in any way he can with requests.
We look forward to seeing you next Christmas or sooner if you can make it.
Kind regards

My partner and i stayed here for 2 nights at the start of December. The pool was lovely and heated and our 1 bedroom apartment was extremely spacious featuring 2 balconies. The rooms were very modern and had exactly what we needed. The resort is featured above cafe's, shops and about a 6-8 minute walk from the beach. Overall it was an enjoyable stay and i would recommend it if staying in Coolum

Room Tip: If you can try and choose a room on an upper level facing the ocean. We had an upper level however w...

Thank you, Alana, for your review.
We are so well located here in the heart of Coolum Beach, with all of the facilities within easy walking distance.
The pool heater was new this year and is so good - makes it possible to swim all year round.
We look forward to welcoming you back again.

Stayed here with my partner for 5 nights and was very impressed with location- close to cafes, shops and beach! Had amazing weather. also if you have a car only a short drive to noosa and other small beaches too. Staff were very friendly and helpful as they allowed us a late check in at very late notice. Beautiful pool, rooms are very modern and big. The only down side for us was our view from the balcony of a petrol station (didn't bother us too much as we were always out and about) and our bathroom didn't have any windows or fan so there was no air circulating through. We will definitely be coming back and recommending element to friends!

Thank you for your review.
We try to arrange for perfect weather for everyone, unfortunately that doesn't always happen...but mostly it us just gorgeous here. We are working on the petrol station, but that is out of our control.
There is a wet ventilation system for the bathrooms, but you are right, there is not a window for a breeze.
Thank you for the kind words and recommendations.

We stayed 3 nights in a massive 2 br apartment. The property is in a nice location with lots of eateries nearby (particularly enjoyed the Thai and the Gelato very close by - both of which give discounts to guests). The airconditioning system in our massive apartment struggled as the lounge area would be freezing in order for the bedrooms to get cool, but most of this problem was overcome by using the very effective ceiling fans instead. The pool was lovely and very well kept.

Thank you for your review.
Yes, it is a real bonus having such great restaurants and shops in our retail precinct - means once you get here you don't need to drive anywhere.
All of our apartments are individually owned and some owners have chosen to duct the air-conditioning into the bedrooms after they bought their apartment, but otherwise the air-conditioning which is individually controlled in each apartment is in the main living areas.
We look forward to having you stay with us again.
