“Idyllic Family Getaway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

Osprey Apartments offers the type of accommodation you rarely see; incredibly spacious, comfortable (if felt like we were house sitting a friend's apartment) and the perfect beachside location. The sunrises were a welcome sight each morning from our balcony over looking the water, where we would enjoy a home made breakfast made in our fully (and I mean 'fully' including salt and pepper!) equipped kitchen. It can be said the emphasis is more on family comfort than contemporary style, however it delivers value for money (particularly outside of the busy school holiday periods) and has all the amenities you would expect and enjoy when spending time away. The proximity to shops, cafés and the surf club provides a range of dining options, including self catering and the on site parking provided a lift directly to our door. I will definitely be staying here again on our next visit to the Sunshine Coast.

Stayed June 2014, travelled with family

Hi Rebecca L

We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and that we ticked all your boxes!
We agree with your comment that there is more emphasis on comfort in our fully self contained apartments and are happy that you found this to be the case.

Best regards

We have stayed at Osprey at least 7 times in many rooms and have never been disappointed. Dave and Sue always look after us. The rooms are well appointed, modern and well maintained. Our home away from home. We are actually looking at buying a unit here. Well positioned and family friendly. Best place to stay on the Sunshine Coast.

We were walk in guests and shown a lovely apartment prior to paying, which we took. Had a great stay but unfortunately we did have one disappointment. After two nights we decided we would like to leave a day earlier, so went to the office to see if we could. Yes we had read the paperwork given to us, and yes we had read no refunds. Rules are rules but as a suggestion to Dave and Sue maybe a little bit of flexibility is required at times, especially for walkin guests who havn't had prior knowledge of your regulations, and like to have the flexibility to move on rather than being tied into 'you said 4 nights so 4 nights it is'. Working in the same industry in NZ for the last 8 years, we have never stopped or should I say kept guests money because they decided to leave a day and a half early. Hate to put a negative on an otherwise lovely stay.

Hi Jendf

On arrival you enquired how much a 4 night stay would cost. We gave you a greatly discounted rate based on a 4 night stay. At no stage did you mention that you may wish to leave earlier as had you done so, we would have only booked and charged you the appropriate higher rate for a shorter stay. We are pleased you otherwise enjoyed your stay.

Kind regards
Sue and Dave

Could not fault, our apartment was spotless and offered fantastic views over the ocean, we found the facilities to be top class, extremely well maintained, a credit to the staff and management.
Very close to the main street with fantastic food and atmosphere.
Great location, we would stay again, the best accommodation we have stayed in on the sunshine coast to date.

Room Tip: Room 28 would suit everybody, lift access and just the right height to enjoy spectacular views.

Thank you Sue and Dave for a great visit. We celebrated a special birthday and shouted the family (4 units). We all had spacious clean ocean view units. The weather was fabulous so spent a lot of time in the pool and spa. Both great facilities. Close to town to walk to and fro and Sue and Dave most helpful with tourist attractions and advice.
Thank you both - will definitely be back.

We stayed in a high ocean view 2 bedroom apartment and as a couple it was nice to have so much space all to ourselves! I loved the balcony and we were in room 31 which was great. The location is pretty good with only a few minutes walk to the main street, though in May with all the rain that can be a pain if you are walking. Lovely clean apartment and plenty of kitchenware to make our own food which was great. Friendly staff and enjoyed the swimming pool and spa. Would definitely stay again!

Room Tip: High ocean view was good - 31 was in a great location.

We had an amazing four day reunion at Osprey, our second visit! We just love the location, only a quick stroll to the lovely shops and eateries. The apartments are really spacious and well maintained. The facilities at the complex are excellent and the managers and staff are very accommodating! We will be back that's for sure!!
