Despite a last minute booking, we managed to get accommodation at this great apartment complex at Bargara. After travelling close to 5 hours from Brisbane, we are warmly welcomed by the managers. We love the option of opening up a second bedroom for our teenage boys which we took advantage of this year because the weather was not pleasant. Our friends campsite where our sons normally stay was very damp after torrential rain so they stayed with us for the first night and we cooked a lovely meal for our drenched campers. The apartments are very clean and comfortable - plenty of room for a family. Even though the apartments are not on the esplanade, you can still catch a glimpse of the ocean and you are still lulled to sleep with the sound of waves.

Thanks SatisfiedTraveller46 for your very kind comments. We love it when guests choose to return again-just like old friends paying a visit!! We think the location just a little back from the busy Esplanade is a plus - much quieter and still only 400m to the patrolled surf beach. After all, Bargara's main attraction is the peace and quiet.

We both really enjoyed our stay at Koola Beach Apartments. The apartment was immaculate and provided everything we could possibly need or want. The views were amazing from our balcony.

Christine and Allen (managers) were helpful and friendly while not being at all intrusive.

Could readily recommend and will visit again.

We are delighted that you enjoyed your visit to Bargara and our complex PatriciaHoward. The apartments are just 2 years old, so as you found are very modern and airey. We are determined to keep them looking like new - it takes a lot of time and effort, but we believe cleanliness is paramount in our business. Your comments make it all worthwhile. Look forward to seeing you again.

We recently stayed at Koola Beach Apartments in Bargara and have to say that Allan and Chris were the most welcoming and helpful hosts I've come across in a long time.

Accommodation was first class and very affordable.

Bargara is quiet and relaxing with not much to do except take it easy!! Our stay there, albeit only short, was absolutely wonderful.

Certainly a place worth checking out when you need time out!!

Thanks FootyFollower - glad you enjoyed the break. The beauty of Bargara is that it is not "touristey" - just a great place to lay back and unwind. Plenty to do if you have the time to explore the area, and best of all the simple things in life are "free". Allan & Chris

I cannot say enough good things about this place. It is clean, modern and quite. Rates are great too especially there long term ones. We stayed here for 4 weeks and loved it. The mangers Allen and Chris are friendly and helpful, more so than any other place I have stayed. Great accommodation at an affordable price. Will recommended it to any one thinking of coming here.

The apartments are well appointed and provide everything you would expect and need in an apartment. They are modern and comfortable. HUGE TV but why would you bother watching TV when there are so many other things to explore in the area. The balconies were very good, but the view was not all that great from our room. View from other rooms would probably have been fantastic. The only really critizism I have is the location. I wish it would have been located along side the other similar apartments to make it a little more convenient to restaurants and CBD. If you just need a base in which to explore the wider region, then it would be fine.

The managers were absolutely wonderful and eventhough they were flat out cleaning apartments, they had time to have a chat and were very helpful.

In short, great facility, great staff but just needs a bit more convenient location. I would stay here again, but if something in another facility offered the same per night value, i would probably opt for that.

Thanks for the positive comments Twyan. Not much we can do about the location!! - "value for money" is our advantage - modern, clean apartments in a quiet location and after-all just a short 700m stroll to the village centre. We see you have more recently stayed at one of the better located resorts in Bargara but found it noisy and apparently not such good value. We rest our case!!! Allan & Chris
