“Great value, friendly and relaxing atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2013

We came for a weekend getaway as two couples and found this to be the perfect spot. Close to maroochydore in the car and great value. We were in a cabin away from the water where cabins are quite crowded in but this did not have a negative impact on our stay.
The cabin was clean with plenty of room for 2 couples to relax and cooking facilities better than expected with full stand alone oven, microwave and fridge.
The recreation facilities and hire equipment were great value for money with the only disappointment being that you must stay within view of the bungalows in the inlet area which was fine for me but my adventurous husband felt a little restricted. We had hoped to hire a couple of paddle boats between us but there is only one available and only one stand up paddle board. This did not ruin our fun and we just worked around it. It may be a bit of an issue if there is a big group wanting equipment at the same time.
Staff were very friendly and accommodating, making us all feel very welcome.
Only small issue was that we were only allowed one key for the cabin which meant that we had to come and go at the same time. Again not a big problem and easily managed between us.
We all left feeling happy and relaxed after a fun weekend.

Room Tip: Ask for a riverfront bungalow if you want to be on the water.

Dear Katiejacks,

We are very pleased that you had a wonderful time on the Sunshine Coast and that we were able to assist in helping you and your friends to relax and unwind. The fact that the cabin exceeded your expectations regarding cooking facilities is wonderful to hear.

Our watercraft are only $5 per 30 minutes (single) and we do keep this low to be affordable for everyone. It is unfortunate that the use of craft is restricted to the bay area however we see this as far safer for the children and far more relaxing for the parents when they know that out of the bay is out of bounds. As we dont want children unthinkingly following others, we make the rule apply to everyone at this stage. We would be interested to know how this could be safely managed in a different way if the interest was there.

Thank you for the kind words about the friendliness and helpfullness of the staff. The team make every effort to be helpful whereever possible and your feedback will be ver rewarding to them. A second key is usually available on request so I am surprised that it was not possible for you. Of course, things do happen and keys break, and therefore occasionally there are a few days where this is not always possible.

Thank you for taking the time to post your honest review and I hope that we will have the opportunity to welcome you back to the Sunshine Coast for another refreshing break.

Do remember that we are currently offering a 10% discount off our standard rates to repeat guests when booking direct with the girls in the office. Please be sure to say youhave been here before when you call to enquire. The girls will do everything possible to give you the best deal.

Warm regards,
Kim

After a very long year, we looked so forward to our week holiday and I have to say Maroochy River Resort and Bungalows did not dissapoint. Children had a blast, two bedroom accommodation was great (especially with the aircon ;). The kids could not get enough of the different activities available and looked forward to everything that was on offer from the kayaks, paddle boats and kids club that included the funballz which was awesome.

Thanks for a wonderful time!

My family and I would like to thank the lovely staff, The great service and A perfect location for our Family reunion. We would'nt have chosen a better spot to relax and enjoy every single day of freedom! It is hard maintaining all 30 adults and children but The lovely river left everyone occupied everyday, and the tennis court was also a big hit in our family!
This will definately be an annual family trip, and we might stay one weekend during the year

My partner and I were looking for something comfortable and close to town. We found it here. We really enjoyed the quiet, relaxing environment and the privacy of our own little bungalo. The staff there were also very accommodating and friendly.

Two bedroom villa very clean, spacious, well equipped, and in good condition. Gardens nice. Resort fronts a section of the maroochy river and has kayaks, pedal boats and tennis. Some of the units front the waterway, and some don't. The lake the resort is situated beside, seems to be a fair way up the river, and is more 'creek like' than beachy, with surrounding areas very low lying. Car parking is not necessarily in view of your unit. Major shopping centres about 10min drive away. Car park near reception needs work and does not give a good first impression. All in all, Not bad for the price. Reception staff very helpful and friendly

Room Tip: Waterfront definitely more preferable

Dear Lisa69448,
Thank you for taking the time to post a review on your recent stay. Our waterfront bungalows are very popular with our guests, especially as you can moor your boat in the water right in front of your own bungalow during your stay!
We hope to see you again soon.

The Moreton Bay Christadelphians would recommend this venue to anyone, small or large groups. We had a group of 85, booked out almost all the bungalows bar 2, & we had a ball. Kids especially loved the water sports & fishing. Every bungalow was so clean & fresh & accommodated all our families so well. We felt like we had the place to ourselves, the gardens offered so much privacy. A huge thankyou to Kim, Ruth, Margaret & Linda in the office who made my job of organising such a large group so effortless! I was so relaxed all weekend. We have booked again for next year, & will definately be making this our number one venue to stay for many years to come.
