The resort is located directly across the road from Coles and Dan Murphys. It is a short walk away from the Coolum Beach Hotel, many eating places... More

We came to the Sunshine Coast from Melbourne for a quiet getaway. Coolum is just that. Only 20 mins from Noosa, we had a car rental so could drive everywhere I would recommend that as there isn't much in Coolum and the beach isn't that nice. The apartment was very spacious and clean! For the price it is very good... More

We had a school holiday mini break 2 nights - rooms are small but you don't hear the neighbours (even when we were in a 2 bedroom on middle level), family friendly with lots of pool options. Right near supermarket for supplies.
