We just returned from 7 nights at Ocean Boulevard and it was great to stay in accommodation that caters specifically for couples. The one bedroom units themselves are very well equipped for an extended stay, with a kitchen including a full size fridge, a washing machine & clothes dryer in the bathroom, and a good sized balcony with table and chairs. The unit was clean and comfortable, well furnished and air conditioned. It was great sitting on the balcony in the evening with a glass of wine looking out over the ocean.
The couple that manage the apartments were very helpful and friendly. Checking in and out was straight forward. Free secure undercover parking and a lift were a bonus, as were the luggage trolleys to save making several trips up & down with the suitcases. There is also a swimming pool, spa and enclosed guest BBQ area at the rear of the property.
Another big plus is the location. Directly across the road from the beach - the surf club and patrolled swimming area is a 5 minute walk. There are a number of bars, restaurants and take-aways within a couple of minutes walk, as well as a supermarket, bakery & liquor store literally 2 blocks away towards Maroochydore. For those who enjoy going for a walk it is a very pleasant 35 - 40 minute walk south to Mooloolaba with its restaurants and cafes, or if you head the opposite direction it is about the same distance to Maroochydore with its shopping mall, cinemas and restaurants.
There are any number of restaurants in this part of the Sunshine Coast & visitors are really spoilt for choice. If you enjoy fresh seafood I can recommend a trip to the Mooloolaba Fish Markets on Parkyn Parade - very hard to beat a dinner of fresh oysters, king prawns and Morton Bay bugs washed down with a good Riesling while sitting on your balcony at units looking our over the ocean as the sun sets.
We enjoyed a very pleasant week here - no drunken yobbos; no yelling kids; no noisy all-night parties. Would recommend Ocean Boulevard to other couples looking for a relaxing visit to the Sunshine Coast and would gladly stay there again.
