We are a family of four, with two small children and recently spent five days at The Cove in Noosa. I did a lot of research before booking, and having stayed in Noosaville previously, I was keen to be near the beach.
I think The Cove is in an unbeatable position with Little Cove Beach directly across the road. From the resort, on the left, Hastings St, a beautiful five minute walk, to the right, the national park, which is really what sets Noosa apart from the rest of the Sunshine Coast. I cannot praise the location highly enough. It was perfect for our family.
Little Cove beach never gets too busy, the water is warm and there is a friendly surf break which my nine year old, (and her dad), loved. She even got to surf with dolphins, although she panicked at first believing she was in a scene from Jaws. We also saw whales as we walked the national park path. Within the resort we saw lizards and cheeky kookaburras sitting on our balconly waiting for us to fire up the barbie.
Hastings St is also a joy, I loved one cafe in particular for sipping champagne with strawberries and watching the people go by. I forget the name, but it's the one where the little tables and chairs are facing the street, parisian style. The staff were friendly, we even had dinner there, it has a child-friendy side where the children have space to run around the fountains. It was great to be so close to Hastings St, I never used the hire car once.
As for the accommodation itself, we booked a 2 bedroom penthouse with a private rooftop and spa. I contacted the resort directly and got a great rate, cheaper than wotif. We had a great view from the apartment and even better from the rooftop. The apartment was furnished nicely, very modern. The kitchen is fully equipped, the beds were very comfortable.
The negatives of the apartment and complex would be the older style bathrooms, the stairs, (we were on the third floor), I don't mind walking up stairs, but it might be a problem for some, and the pool wasn't really warm enough for me. My children loved the pool ofcourse.
I think when choosing accommodation in Noosa, you must decide on what is most important to you. We decided on position, it suited our family perfectly. We felt privledged to stay in that area, it really is a beautiful spot.
