We had these apartments recommended to us by colleagues in the accommodation industry some time ago and finally after my recent operation we had an excuse to go try them out as I needed somewhere for a few days R&R (that's recover & recuperate!). A delightful set of apartments that have clearly been fitted out with quality furnishings and fittings.... More

This was our second stay at Windward Passage this year and yet again a ripper! This time we stayed in Apartment 23 on Level 7. It proved to be ideal for us with its choice of balconies. The front one had the amazing view across to the ocean and the town centre. The side balcony with its views over town... More

Our second visit to the Windward Passage this year. The views are simply stunning. Its hard to prize yourself away from the patio/deck to explore what the rest of this area offers but sometimes "ya just gotta!!". Its only a 10-15 minute stroll into Caloundra which offers some great shopping and a very good Sunday Market. The towns people are... More

We arrived in the middle of a cracker storm and had the daunting task of trudging 3 kids and luggage to our room.

I had not visited the Sunshine Coast and booked Windward Passage solely due to its high trip advisor rating, so I cannot confirm if it is good value in comparison to similar accommodation in the Sunshine Coast. I found it a lovely 2 BR unit - 2 nice bathrooms, with a fully kitted out kitchen and living area looking onto... More

We could not be more happy with our accommodation at Windward Passage for our latest holiday at Caloundra! The unit we had (4th floor, 2bedroom) was incredibly spacious, beautifully furnished with magnificent views across the passage.

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.... More
