We've stayed here several times now and always enjoy ourselves. Staff are very friendly and helpful and the apartments are excellent. Right on the beach ... you can hear the surf! We've been in both the 2 and 3 bedroom apartments and they are very clean and comfortable with all the inclusions you need for a great holiday.

very comfortable accommodation, had a really nice relaxing 6 night holiday in a two bedroom unit. 3 pools meant if one was busy we just moved to another, and of course the beach at your doorstep and a lovely walk or bike ride to the lighthouse.

Surfside on the beach is just the place for a relaxing holiday and being right on the beach and walking distance to Kawana Shoppingworld everything is close at hand. We are central to just about everywhere on the Sunshine Coast and only a 10 – 15 minute drive to Maroochydore or Caloundra in either direction. The apartments are very practical...

Our Apartment (3bed TD) was ideal for a family holiday, any issues were dealt with in a timely & friendly manner. The location is awesome for beach lovers, less than a 10 minute walk to shops & eateries. We would love to stay again!

We very much enjoyed our 5 night stay in a 3 bedroom apartment which was clean, tidy and everything we needed including the bonus of the rooftop bbq area. The only downside was we encountered very hot weather during our stay which made the bedrooms on the sunny side extremely hot for the children who ended up sleeping in the...

The rooftops are a nice addition to some of the apartments and some of them have lovely views. It’s worth paying a little extra, especially if you’ve got a few families and want to gather in the one spot. You can also hire an electric bbq for the duration of your stay quite cheaply which is great for a barby...

Coming from Europe, the two bedroom appartment was really spacious. The degree of luxury was also giving us a really good impression. Although the appartment block was of very high standard, it didn't feel as unconfortable, a real aussie vibe with friendly neighbours. For 2 weeks, this was a new home to us. Good job to the team that runs...
