A big thank you to Deb and Dave for an amazing stress free stay. We loved our unit (12) overlooking the pool and was well maintained and extremely clean. We even had help taking our bags up the stairs. A little walk to Kings Beach and some amazing food outlets. Thanks again, we will be back!

Thank you, Sandy K, for taking the time to write a review about Cheltenham Apartments after your recent stay. It is always nice when a persons stay can be translated into words that either reward or help a business improve what they can offer the guest. We are pleased you had a good time and look forward to seeing you again soon.

As a last minute long weekend cheap Internet booking I was a little nervous and the street appeal wasn't overwhelmingly reassuring however this place is one of those looks can be deceiving kind of places. On our late-ish Friday night arrival we were welcomed by Dave who was just so helpful. He carried our bags up to our third floor apartment which was spotlessly clean and freshly painted and redecorated and gave us a comprehensive rundown on all the local eateries.

We were given unit 15 which, although not facing the waterfront has very good water views from the balcony. We'd recommend booking a top floor unit as they all have rooftop balconies with a great assortment of sun lounges and dining area with a bbq, sheltered from the wind and a great entertaining area in summer.

Our unit was two bedroom one bathroom with the laundry facilities in the bathroom but the space was more than adequate to accommodate it. The toilet was separate. The kitchen was small but had everything you could possibly need for a family of four and unlike a lot of places the lounge room seating was more than adequate for the four of us.

The grounds and pool area are all very well maintained and the entire property is lovely and clean and tidy.

Being just a short walk to Dickies beach with its fantastic park area this would be a great spot for young families but it also suited our party of two adults and two teens.

This is a gem of a place and we'd highly recommend it ... Especially for the price

Room Tip: Take a top floor apartment ... Worth the three flights of stairs for your rooftop entertaining area

A big thanks to Deb and Dave for another wonderful stay for our family. The kids had an awesome time and loved the pool and easy access to the beach. The rooms are always comfortable and well stocked for a week away for a family. Not only do we get great hospitality from you guys, the value for money is the best in Caloundra. See you next year.

THank you very much for your review on Trip Advisor and your kind words regards to Cheltenham Apartments. Sorry about the weather but we are so pleased that you appreciated our service and locality, the former being something we try hard to treat our guests like we would like to be treated and we have had some real shockers in our time.
We find most people appreciate service without being obtrusive and a clean, quiet place to lay ones head. We look forward to being able to help you again, soon.

Well let me start by saying my in laws have been staying at cheltenham of the past 12 years, I have been, staying over the past 5. Its a long time i know but there is a reason. Dave and Deborah the on site managers do everything possible to make your stay as pleasant as possible with the rooms always immaculate and clean and a welcoming smile on arrival.

Over the years we have gone from renting 1 apartment to now friends and family renting 4 to accomadate the brood. Yes we all think it is really that good

It is a short walk to everything kings beach has to offer without the huge price tag the beach front apartments come with plus it has a heated pool that is larger than I have ever seen. So no matter how many guests are using it it never feels crowded.

There is a communal BBQ which is a lovely addition and allows for a festive atmosphere no matter what time of year.

All in all with the staff the wonderful rooms and the location oh and the price I can't reccomend this place highly enough.

And if your thinking this a paid for advertisement it isn't. Dave and Deborah are friends but only after we started visiting them for 3 weeks every christmas for the past 8 years. They really make this apartment complex feel like our own and make every effort to make our stay as wonderful as the last.

We hope to see them again next year.
Regards the combined Freiberg, Broadhead and Stephens brood

Room Tip: Budget conscience travelers pick those that face the road. If you want a view take one over looking...

As per the previous reviews I would recommend a stay at the Cheltenham Apartments.

Apartment
Clean, comfortable and fully equipped. We stayed in apartment 17, which although was a hike up the stairs was worth it for the lovely views. Also benefited from the rooftop area (huge) but unfortunately only used once due to being winter and us being out and about a lot. We stayed with 2 children (7 & 3) and there was plenty of room and very quiet.

Facilities
Spotless gardens and pool area, although even though it was heated we found it a little too cold for us to use in winter.

Location
Great location, just a short stroll from Kings Beach and the playgrounds, restaurants. Also in walking distance to other areas of Caloundra, including Bulcock Beach along the lovely boardwalk. A good base also for exploring the sunshine coast by car, we visited Glass House mountains, Australia Zoo, Eumundi Markets, Noosa, Bribie Island,Redcliffe and other beaches etc. - too much to do!

Again, as mentioned by many, Deb and Dave were great managers being on hand to offer any help or advice without being intrusive.
