Coolum Seaside Guest Reviews
Your best holiday is in Coolum Seaside…
Fantastic Family Friendly Holiday
We loved Coolum Seaside Resort so much the first time in 2018 with my family and the grandparents that my little family returned again this year with the in-laws for my FIL 70th birthday!
Sandie and Murray, who run the accommodation are most hospitable. They are very warm and friendly hosts who go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. It was their little touches on both stays that we just felt like we were home-away-from-home. Sandie so kindly shared a special toy box (that she has for her grandchildren) with us for my children to play with, at no extra cost. In addition to this, they had a port-o-cot available (at the time I was unaware and had rented a wooden cot) along with sheets. When it our room was due for a service, Sandie had arranged for clean sheets to be provided for the cot also - at no cost nor did I have to ask for it (yet I had paid $11 to hire them with the cot!! 😱 Won't do that again!). Also, in addition to this, Sandie and Murray are very generous and have a great selection of body boards and beach toys for the children to use at the beach.
It is these small thoughtful touches that really just made our family vacay home-away-from-home. Both times we have stayed in a spotless 2 bedroom apartment facing onto the pool and tennis court. We loved it. Having a lift get us onto the second floor made life that bit easier, especially when we had a pram!
Location of this resort is the icing on the cake. It's so central to everything. The Coles supermarket is no more than a 10 minute walk. The beach is a 5 minute walk and right next to the Coolum Surf Club is a beautiful little playground - lending itself for a morning play and coffee while watching the husband surf.
Canteen Bar and Kitchen along with My Place were two dinner restaurant favs and are only a 5 minutes stroll from this accommodation. Also only a 5-10max minute walk away were fav coffee places Alley Cat, Beanhead and The Caf. Juices and fresh breakfasts were also great from Raw Energy and only 5 mins from our room! There's also a pharmacy and really cute little general store within a 5 minute walk too (VERY handy!)
Another positive is that Coolum Seaside Resort is only a 10 minute drive from the Maroochydore Airport. After a flight with two kids under 3, having a 10minute taxi ride is VERY appealing!
Highly recommend Coolum Seaside Apartments for young families! We have just loved our holidays here and will be looking at returning for our annual family holiday in 2020. Thanks very much Sandie and Murray.
