Our 3 night stay at Windward Passage Holiday Apartments was perfection. The apartment is spotlessly clean and there is nothing left to be desired. Being fully self-contained, you can hibernate in total comfort, or take in the great beach right outside the door, complete with walking tracks. Security is guaranteed, with your own lock-up garage within the secure parking area....

This apartment style accomodation is fully self contained and very secure.. It is located right on the waterfront at peaceful Golden Beach. The boardwalk in front of the apartments stretches to the south - the length of Golden Beach and to the north, right around to The Bullcock Beach restaurant precinct. There is no end of activities to engage in-...

What an amazing place to stay for a long weekend. Amazing view over the water, and just a short stroll to the shops and restaurants. Total relaxation and luxury. The only problem was that our time there was over too fast. Highly recommend Windward Passage to anyone wanting some luxury in paradise.

Though it doesn't look glamorous, it is comfortable, the apartments have everything you need (space-wise) for any length of stay. Mary and Harley (managers) are lovely and very accommodating. They can help with bookings of all sorts of things. It is near the beach and there is a walking around above the beach in both directions (north and south). Caloundra...

My daughter and I just spent six days at this property. We have been guests here before and found it to be just as enjoyable as previously. The new managers Mary and Harley are excellent hosts and accommodating. They made bookings for us before we arrived and after. The apartment was 2 bedroom on 4th Floor - spotlessly clean on...

Amazing views. Also the apartment was 3 bedroom and 2 bathroom and spacious with everything you could need. Beds (speaking of the single bed I used) was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. Would definitely stay again. It is an easy 15 min walk to restaurants further towards the ocean. Good value when divided between 2 couples.

What a great time. Invited friends for a weekend stay while we stayed a week. Caretakers are courteous and friendly. They are sticklers for check in times but I guess that is ok. Building is in great shape and fantastic views. Walking distance to town/cafes, some of it along waterfront. Great balcony and very comfy beds and very well appointed...

Just returned from a month's stay at Windward Passage, escaping winter in NZ. The apartment was lovely with spectacular views both of the sea and the mountains. Windward Passage is slightly away from the bustle of central Caloundra but an easy flat walk along a lovely waterfront path to the main shopping precinct. It's also a short walk to Stocklands...
