Stayed here with some friends for the past week - the management are friendly, the apartments are clean and well-kept and you get a lot for your money! Pool, walking distance to beach and only 20 minutes drive from Bundaberg CBD, enough to see and do, plenty of space. Would recommend to anyone looking for a break in the Bundaberg/Bargara area.

Room Tip: Quiet all round, there is next to nothing in the area, plenty of space between buildings, road outsi...

What a delight to have such a nice group of eight young people stay here at Koola Beach - loved having you Luke M. We were initially a bit worried that Bargara might have been "too laid back" for your age group, so are pleased to hear that you enjoyed yourselves.
Thanks for your kind remarks about the apartments and the quiet surrounds, and we must say that we really appreciate the way you left the apartments after a week here. Great work........all of you. Come back any time.

The location within close walking distance to the beach and near to Bargara central and close to Bundaberg.
We stayed in the "Bargara Dream" which is a 2 level apartment with family room, kitchen and personal garage in ground level and bedrooms in the upper level.
The apartment are pretty new and modern with all facilities you need. All equipment are very well maintained and clean. It really have the Home away from Home feeling here.
The rooms are clean and the onsite managers are very service oriented. They are always ready to assist you in all your travel needs and inquiry. The best service I have received from my latest trip to Australia.

We appreciate your review and kind words Ianang888. Glad you enjoyed your stopover in Bargara and that we were able to help organise your trip to Lady Musgrave Island and the Mon Repos Turtles. Yours is our first review for Bargara Dream - the adjacent 3 Bedroom Townhouse complex that we also manage. Nice to hear that the high standards we strive to achieve in the Koola Beach Apartments complex also carry through to Bargara Dream. As you say, the Townhouses feel like home - plenty of room, privacy and quality appointments. Ideal for larger families like yours. Thank you again, and please come back to see us if you make another trip to Australia.

Thank you joanne k - we are glad that you found our complex a "good choice". We are especially pleased that you thought our tariff was "excellent value", as this is one of our core objectives in these tough economic times and it's what brings our guests back for another visit to our beautiful seaside village and the Coral Coast. In the past 12 months 1 in 5 of our bookings were from repeat guests, which we interpret as a vote of satisfaction and "value".
We hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back again also.

This place is great! The apartments are fantastic value for money, very clean and modern, close to the main restaurants and waterfront and only 20 minutes from Bundaberg. Seriously couldn't ask for more. The on-site managers are wonderful!

We are delighted with your feedback "Pointwilliams" and are pleased that we were able to convert your disappointing experience with your booked accommodation in Bundaberg into a pleasant stay here in Bargara. We are biased of course, but consider Bargara is THE place to stay when visiting the area. Just so peaceful and quiet......plus the ocean breezes. Hope we see you again soon.

Appreciate your effort in posting a review billyblog. One of our objectives is to ensure that the complex is "good value", so we are delighted that you thought that was the case. It is difficult for families to afford a break away in these difficult economic times - we are doing all we can to keep our tariffs within an affordable range, without sacrificing our 4.5 star quality.

WOW !!! a perfect "10" - thank your so much Catherine12333. We appreciate such an excellent review from a seasoned international traveller as well as your comment that the apartments are "exactly as you see on the website". We are careful to ensure this so, as we have found when travelling ourselves that this is not always the case. Our own website contains a "walkthrough" video that was made earlier this year, so that prospective guests can see exactly what they can expect when they stay with us. Glad you enjoyed your 10 nights in Bargara........we think it is one of the most beautiful and serene seaside villages in Queensland. Perfect one day !!....and exactly the same the next!! Please visit Australia again.....there is still more to see..

Modern, roomy, and overall comfortable and clean. Managers were friendly and very helpful.
Free wifi! Location was a few blocks away from the centre but a pleasant short walk along the coastal path.
Fully equipped with all necessary appliances and devices - washing, drying, ironing, dishwasher etc... Free secure parking below and a lift as well.

Only 1 minor issue - a few mould spots on the grout in the shower recess - easily fixed with a little bleach occasionally.

We would be happy to stay here again

Thanks for your positive comments Tassiegolly. A 4 star rating from such a seasoned traveller/reviewer is appreciated and rewards our efforts to provide comfortable, well equipped and clean accommodation at a price that everyone can afford. Apologies for the problem with the shower. Our Cleaner is first class and the showers are given a bleach clean each and every change of guest - not sure how this one slipped through our post-clean quality control inspection process, but we will obviously be more observant as a result of your comment.
We hope to see you back this way at some future time.
