“Don't trust the website photos”
Reviewed 4 May 2010

Ok. So this place I think is managed as a 'time-stay' type deal, which means the main concern for management is looking after the best interests of the owners of the apartments, rather than the guests. None of this is clear from the website. As such, you are expected to tidy up after yourself and there are numerous rules, regulations and directives to be adhered to at every turn. I suppose this place is good for families, as it is roomy and peaceful, but it in no way provided the luxury Noosa experience I was expecting.
Some issues:
bed spread was stained and old.
Shower did not drain properly, so you were left standing in a pool of grimy water as you showered.
3 flights of stairs to apartment and no lift- very difficult with a large bag.
Very small, outdated TV and entertainment system.
Old smell throughout apartment.
You have to pay for any extras you may require- including beach towels, toilet paper etc.
Quite a laborious walk into town.

Wanting a great little spot that was out of the way, we decided to take up this little spot near Noosa Junction - not quite knowing quite where it was located in terms of the happening scene down at Hastings Street. Proved to be a great decision, once we worked through an intial mix up with our booking. The hosts were very helpful and followed through the morning after our late night arrival to make sure the booking was secured, however this could have been a major concern if it had been peak time and accommodation short!!

Location was great - a short walk down to shops and food outlets at the junciton and a leisurely stroll to the beaches and Hastings Street. Accommodation was well looked after and the gardens nices and tropical - the stairs to the river were a great little hidden spot for a predinner beverage. Only dodgy bit was the place had so many rules...cant do this, please do that - which while probably important seemed a bit like being at boarding school even though we didnt really mind adhering to them!! Definately worth a go !

We stayed in a 2 bedroom appt (#22). the appt is clean and comfortable. The kitchen is pretty well equiped (good enough to whip up quick meals). there is not much of a view as it is blocked up by trees - which we don't mind. the place is quiet and cosy.. it is about 5 minutes drive to Hastings and the Noosa Junction where you can find supermarkets and many stores.
