We spent three nights at Dockside and had a very relaxing time.
The apartment was well catered and very tidy. Very close to everything and the locals were very friendly/helpful
Walking distance to the beach.
Will be making a return visit!

We stayed 4 nights back in May on our travels through Oz and it was a really refreshing clean and comfy place to stay with the apartment being fully kitted out with everything you could possibly want for. The grounds were also very well maintaned making it all the more welcoming. Tony and Margo the Managers were very friendly and extremely helpful with their local knowledge. The location was perfect just a short leisurely stroll to the beach front and shops. Definitely recommended to anyone visiting the sunshine coast.

Close to Wharf and Esplanade.Last visited Mooloolaba 13 years ago and what a difference! Dockside location was great for the beach, surf club and dining. Supermarket within easy walking distance for when we wanted to self cater. Apartment was clean, comfortable (beds and sofas),nice balcony and had all the facilities needed. Margo and Tony were on hand for any help or local info needed. We had enough tea, coffee etc to last till we went shopping.
We had hired a car in Brisbane but you could enjoy a holiday here without one. Public transport is available to other towns, and there is plenty to do locally.
TVs had sports channels so we could enjoy the cricket as well.
Being so central, we did expect some traffic noise but our apartment faced Burnett Street and we were not bothered by noise at all. The pool is very clean and secluded. I was frequently the only one in the water.
Thoroughly recommend Dockside Apartments

Room Tip: Didn't see any other apartments but facing Burnett street was quiet.

We have just returned from a 3 night weekend stay at Dockside in one of their 3 bedroom apartments which was very comfortable even for a large group. Margo was extremely helpful right through the reservation process and during our stay providing lots of information and tips on what to do. The apartment itself was very clean and well equipped with TVs with both sports and kids channels, large fridge, cooking facilities with plenty of crockery and utensils. The complex was also well maintained and very clean with the highlight being the heated pool which was warm enough for the kids to swim despite nightime temperatures dropping to just 7 degrees. The location is close to McDonalds and many other restaurants (Shalibar Indian and Crust Pizza were yummy!) and takeaways, less than 5 mintues walk to the beach and Esplanade, Underwaterworld and parks- everything you need is within walking distance. With all that around you i would expect a bit of noise so am a bit surprised by some of the comments on here- If you are looking for R&R and peace and quiet the Sunshine Coast has wonderful cabin retreats in the hinterland. If you are looking for value for money you wont find better and we will be back next time we visit the Sunshine Coast

Room Tip: The building is actually located in a quiet cul de sac with just the end corner of the building faci...

Good location but wife had to sleep on lounge due to the bed ... Every time you move even slightly it could be felt by the other person but one good thing is that the lounge wasn't that bad to sleep on , her neck didn't hurt that bad after the third night !!! Yes we had problems with people walking home in the small hours of the morning and also having them standing out side of mc Donald's for a hour yelling and swearing was a bit annoying . But the thing that annoyed me the most is we only had one roll of toilet paper for three days for two adults and two kids .we phoned reception for another roll and was told we would have to buy some . surely for the money they recieve from our booking they can afford to supply toilet paper . No wonder most Australians decide to go overseas rather than holiday in there own country .... At least third world countries supply toilet paper to their guests .

DocksideMooloolaba, Manager at Dockside Apartments Mooloolaba, responded to this review, 10 May 2012
Mr Church, we were sorry to hear of your issues with your stay at Dockside, let me address your points one by one:

Firstly, we are sorry that Mrs Church had to sleep on the lounge. As you arrived out of office hours, we asked that you call at reception the following morning to ‘complete check-in’ – an opportunity to meet you and advise that there was a rooftop spa which was an optional extra with your apartment and was not included in the special promotional rate that you paid for your Labour holiday weekend - approximately half the usual low season rate.
Had you done so, this would have been a perfect time for you or your wife to advise us that she was finding the bed uncomfortable. Some people like a firm mattress, some of soft one and usually apartment owners buy the one that they find comfortable – we could have tried to move you to another apartment or perhaps supplied a rollaway bed for you or one of your teenage sons so your wife could sleep in a bed. None of your issues were even raised via the in room comment card.
Dockside is a self-contained/self-catering apartment complex which comes supplied with a starter kit of tea, coffee etc and of course a full toilet roll plus a spare part toll in the bathroom vanity. Unlike hotels, these apartments are not serviced daily and the rate reflects this. They are meant to be your temporary holiday home where you would naturally purchase your own supplies. We accept that many do not want to buy a pack of 4 toilet rolls from the supermarket and offer the supply of single rolls for $1 from reception during office hours. Your mid-evening call to our after-hours number on a public holiday was answered and we offered re-open the office, alternatively there was a Night Owl across the road or a nearby Service Station.
Mooloolaba is a busy place over holiday weekends so like anywhere else you sometimes get inconsiderate people talking as they walk home late at night – this would be a problem anywhere for light sleepers. When this goes on for any length of time, the police usually take care of it – we will pass on your comments to the local beat office.
As for the rooftop spa which we found on your departure uncovered and running, the cover having been ripped off and damaged, we did advise that you would not be charged for its use or the wasted electricity. Also you will be glad to know we were able to remove all the fragments of polystyrene and nylon cover from the boogie board that your son broke up from the pool and surrounds without any damage to the filtration system. Nor were you charged for the phone call made from the apartment.
