We booked a 2 night stay through Bookings.com which stated restricted ocean views. We were in room 104 which was located behind the surf club and had no view of the ocean. Most of the view from the balcony when standing was of the surf club, some sand, roof tops, power lines and some trees. The room was very basic but clean. The location of the complex itself is good as it is close to the beach and restaurants. A small pool. Staff were friendly but would not stay here again as I think there is better value for money on the coast.

Recently spent the weekend at Sandcastles Mooloolaba and just loved our experience. On arrival you are greeted by such welcoming and lovely staff. Bridgette and Charlie were fantastic and such great ambassadors for not just for their property but also Mooloolaba and the Sunshine Coast. Our 1 bedroom apartment had everything we needed inside, the location was amazing! A plethora of great cafes, restaurants, SLSC totally spoilt for choice and of course the ocean, beach walks right at your finger tips. We'll definitely be back! In terms of food and beverages, for a great coffee and chilled Sunday morning vibes I highly recommend Bomba Coffee House, 2 minutes walk from Sandcastles down Burnett Street. Beck makes great coffee, staff are friendly and from 8 - 10 am enjoy the live chilled vibes from a very talent local musician. We had breakfast at Scotch Bonnet, I liked the clean lines of the decor and food did not disappoint. If you want to make your own and like fresh seafood take a 15 minute stroll down the beach, boardwalk or Parklyn Parade to the numerous seafood vendors and buy the Mooloolaba' Prawns. Enjoy them on your balcony with a crisp white wine and watching the world go by whilst listening to the sounds of the ocean. Great on site parking for your stay once you have checked in, finding a car space on arrival though before checking in can be tricky depending on day and time you arrive but if that's the biggest down side of your stay you really have nothing to complain about. Thank you again Sandcastles Mooloolaba, loved our stay will be telling all our friends about your lovely property.

Wonderful location behind the Surf Club and next to the main shopping strip makes walking to everything a breeze. Comfortable, clean self contained rooms (we had 404 with the rooftop). Bridget and Charlie are a bonus being great hosts .. nothing is too much trouble. Always will be happy to stay here.

Location - 5 star - next door to the surf club, 5 mins walk to the wharf, at the end of the main street and 5 mins walk to the beach - you couldn't as for a better location. If you are a light sleeper you may want a room away from the main road. Amenities - The apartment had everything we needed, only suggestion is to have an in room safe though the area was very safe but for peace of mind it would be good. We looked at the pool area but didn't use it, I loved the roof top and it was a great view of the ocean, only suggestion would be to have some greenery there to make the area less concretey. Also be careful on the spiral staircase if you are unsteady on your feet or have young children. Staff - 5 star - The staff were very welcoming and friendly - they offered assistance where they could and were happy to chat and provide recommendations. I noted some reviewers mention lack of toilet paper, there was some to start us off but remember these are apartments so you need to top these things up yourself. I have already recommended this to my friends and would stay here again.
