We had a three bedroom apartment which had everything needed and a great view of the beach. You are given the basics and then when you run out of things like toilet rolls then you buy your own. It is very close to Kings Beach which is a nice beach and a coffee shop, surf club and other shops. If you want to go into the main street it is only a 10/15 minute walk to most of shops. Malcolm the Manager was very helpful and friendly. Free Foxtel and Wifi. The only thing I didn't really like is that the pool can be seen from the side road and those coming up the road from the beach and believe it could be accessed by others not staying at complex.

Room Tip: Our three bedroom apartment was on the third floor, the higher the better view.

Hi Lynne, Thank you for your fine review and comments. You are correct we provide a 'Complimentary' starter kit, toilet roll, shampoo, conditioner, piece of soap, dishwashing liquid and laundry powder. Its then up to you to provide the rest for your holiday. That's why we are called, 'fully SELF contained apartments. We monitor usage of the pool. My apartment overlooks the pool and if Kerrie has any doubts as to whether someone in the pool belongs here, she's onto me about it quick as a flash. It actually only happens twice a year. Regards Malcolm

Just back from our 11 nights at Merrima Court unit 5 , everything was good, apartments and surrounds are very clean, and have everything you could need plus Foxtel and wifi which worked well in our apartment, pool looked good but did not use,
The position is great 1min. from Kings beach, which in our opinion is best place to stay in Caloundra. The managers are on site and are very easy to deal with and are very helpfull.
I believe that if you book direct you can get a better deal

We had one of the ground floor units which more or less had it's own private gate into the (very clean) swimming pool. Wonderful! The only downside was that it could be a bit noisy when the children got going! But there's always going to be a compromise. Lovely large living room & small patio which had the advantage of sliding screens to make it more private as we were right next to the pool. Highly recommend for it's location & also the manager's sense of pride in keeping the place clean & tidy.

My wife and i recently stayed for 7 nights at Merrima Court with our 1 year old son.
From start to finish our experance was better than we could have planned.
We arrived late in the afternoon after the reception was closed but Malcolm was very acomidating and happy to help with our late check in.
They had fantastic sugestions of things to do locally and places to travel.
The apartment was very clean and tidy and perfectly laid out for a relaxing family holiday.
The location was perfect, walking distance from the beach, shops, swimming pool, and more places to eat than you could count.
Parking was a sinch, plenty of it and even your own space for some apartments.

Money very well spent!!

Quick tip: call Malcolm and discuss the booking before making it, there are so many great apartments so he will find one suited to your needs, he is very acomidating.

The self contained rooms were clean, presentable, and comfortable for us (three adults and two energetic kids). The only thing that could be improved is the fact that there was just one roll of toilet paper available for the five of us, and which was already started. Also there was one one set of toiletries enough for one person only and one towel each, therefore no hand towels and no face washers.

Hi Thank you for your review. Merrima Court Holidays are self-contained holiday apartments. That means you are supposed to provide yourself with toiletries. We give you a complimentary starter kit. Nobody would want to go into an apartment after a long trip and find nothing there to use if a toilet stop was urgent, so we give you a roll of paper, some shampoo, conditioner, dishwashing liquid, dishwasher powder, and some laundry powder, plus tissues. But we do it because we care about our guests, we don't charge you for it, but you are then expected to pay for what you need for the remainder of your stay. Antonette, I also gave your father extra tissues and toilet paper at no cost, when he asked, so really am disappointed you still find it warranted to mention all this at all. As for no hand towels or face washer, if my cleaners failed to leave them in the apartment, I would have gladly given them to you. All you had to do was ask. Simple. Malcolm Craig Manager
