We stayed for 8 days and really enjoyed our stay. We are a large family and the apartment was able to accommodate us all, and best of all we weren't tripping all over each other, there was loads of space. The apartment had all the amenities we needed and the kids loved the beach and the pool. The apartment was...

Sounds like you had an awesome time. The apartments are lovely and spacious and as you said so close to everything. With 3 swimming pools on site and the beach on our doorstep there's plenty of options for swimming. Hope we get to see you again. Thank you for your great feedback :)

We had an amazing time at the reaort. Had a great apartment that had great views with everything we needed in it. A few globes missing from the lamps that could have been replaced. Only thing we didn't like was how dirty the pools were they need a good clean!!! 3 pools and all of them were full on bark...

So glad you enjoyed your stay. Have to say we were a little bit shocked re your comment about the pools. The pools are professionally maintained and have only recently undergone the annual pool certification and received glowing reviews. Not sure when your stay was with us but the only thing we can put it down to are the recent...

Having stayed here for several years in a row, we have always been pleased with the service we have received. Some of the apartments do require a facelift, but we have found our ideal apartment and will re-book each year! Location is ideal and management a pleasure to deal with.

Thank you for your feedback. We like to say that every apartment has its own personality as they are all owned by different people and have different décor, outlooks etc. It’s really up to personal taste and we are more than happy to send some photos of a few apartments and to help a guest decide on an apartment.

A wonderful location right on the beach. The apartments are very clean and well appointed. The Management went out of their way to provide us access outside of business hours and provided excellent service. We were very impressed by the location and access to the beach and coastal walk. With family now in the area we will certainly return to...

Thank you for your feedback. The apartments are very spacious and we are fortunate to be in the most beautiful location with absolute beachfront and close to shops and central to Maroochydore and Caloundra.

Our travel agents found Surfside for us when we wanted a short break. My wife, who was born in Queensland, had never been to Kawana but was delighted with it. The apartments are not new but they benefit from being big. Our two bedroom, third floor unit overlooked the pool and the ocean and could not have been more appropriate...

I’m sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. We receive so many lovely reviews it always takes us aback when we hear that guests have not been happy. It is such a lovely location and apartments are spacious and fully self contained and we are within walking distance of the shopping centre and surf club with absolute beachfront at our doorstep....
