3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

These apartments are in a good location for short or longer stays. Totally self contained with 2 bedrooms, bathrooms, tv, dining room and comfy lounge and balcony looking out onto park and beach depending on the floor. Some apartments have a spa on the rooftop. There are 2 pools and bbq facilities. Linen is provided and pots, pans for cooking, salt and pepper, dishwasher and washing machine. Has lifts, tiled stairs. The soaps provided are natural and handmade in rose or sandalwood and turmeric. The apartments have secure entry by card and undercover parking for up to 2 cars. The surf club and shops are all within walking distance. On Sunday there is a boutique market selling a variety of handmade local products from clothes to jewellery to wooden boards, signs. The beach opposite the apartments is good for surfing or swimming and a short walk to the Maroochy river inlet good for paddle boarding. There are lifesavers set up at the beach. Dogs are allowed in certain parts. It is relatively in a quiet area, busy on weekends. Bookings essential. Apartment styles vary. Great for couples or families. Some residents live there too. We have stayed in the apartments several times and like the area and recommend it. Short drive to Mooloolabah beach, Alexandra headlands.

We stayed for one night as 2 couples sharing a two bedroom rooftop holiday apartment (we were offered a free upgrade from the first floor apartment we'd booked, which we happily accepted!) This is the second time we've stayed while celebrating birthdays and dining out at one of the great local Maroochydore restaurants. Our experience of the apartments is that they are spacious, very clean, well equipped and good value for money in comparison to the other short stay places that are in abundance in the area. Very close to Maroochydore beach as well. It is also possible to book a one night stay. We would definitely stay again.

Our family have stayed at Sundeck every year for the last 11 years at different times of the year and have never been disappointed. We usually choose the the ground floor flats as they all have extra outdoor space however we have stayed on all levels and they are all spacious. Generally well appointed and breezy. Two well maintained swimming pools and BBQ area. The managers are very friendly and efficient.

Sundeck Gardens is so relaxing. I come here with my family every year to relax and unwind. I book as I check out and look forward to it all year. The whole family love it. Of course the beach but also we have our favourite restaurants all walking distance from Sundeck.

Absolutely stellar suites right on the beach. Less than a 30 second walk from the front door to the beach. The living room is huge and very modern and well maintained. The staff are extremely helpful and nice. The beds were tremendous, clean sheets and blankets. The air conditioning is fantastic but there's also large windows in each room if you prefer to let the breeze in. You also have a balcony both at the rear and front if you'd like to cool off outside. Gorgeous bathrooms that were super clean. Really felt immaculate. There are two pools, one heated the other not, and both the pools and the deck were immaculately clean. Even had two BBQs out back for guest use. Super handy! Kitchen is super modern and again very clean. Staying here you really feel perfectly set up to enjoy a beach front vacation with everything you need. 5 stars! Would definitely recommend!

We wanted a place with a view and to just sit back and relax. This did it. It was within walking distance to the local surf club and other eateries around the area. Across the road from the beach for strolls.

Love the romantic rooftop apartments, with spiral staircase leading up from front balcony, views of ocean out front. Always clean, ready for our arrival; and the hand made natural soaps smell and feel divine. The beach is just across the road, convenient for a quick dip in the mornings. Everything we needed (organic shop, healthy eateries, fresh juice/smoothie shops) was within a short walking distance or a 6-12 km drive from our apartment: this is our one stop accomodation when we come to Maroochydore each year. The management are friendly and really care about guests health and comfort. My wife's special needs for her fragrance allergy were no problem for them at all. Where some holiday places reek of artificial fragrance and toxic chemicals--or worse, mould--this place smells clean and fresh, just like the ocean air that flows through when you open up front and back doors. The carpark is underground and was completely secure for my new Tiguan.

The unit was lovely, location great, but our booking for an extra unit for our family was changed and management blamed the staff rather than recognizing it was their problem. If you book here check, check & recheck the booking with them before going to ensure you get the unit you want.

The is our second year visiting Maroochydore for a family holiday and we just love it. The location of Sundeck Gardens is perfect - directly opposite parkland and the beach and within easy access of the Cotton tree shopping precinct. We booked a ground floor apartment as we have two young children and we were concerned about balconies. The apartment was rather old and dated and in need of a revamp, but it was very clean and spacious, and had everything we needed for a beach holiday. It had private front and rear courtyards, of which the gardens had sadly been let go to weeds, but beautiful clean outdoor pool areas which we all enjoyed very much. For us, its biggest downfall was a funky smell in the apartment - a cross between eucalyptus/some unrecognisable fragrance/stale old furniture and and we had to live with doors open to get air flow through and make it tolerable. We also paid extra for wifi access but it was shockingly slow and basically unusable. On mentioning it to the manager, he indicated that it was slow due to the change over to the NBN in the region. This is understandable, but if we had known this in advance we wouldn't have paid for it. The hosts were very nice people. We hope to return next year, although we will ask for a different apartment in the hope that it doesn't smell so off.

We have been going to this place for the last 6 years and love it. The apartments are very spacious and if you request a refurbished apartment, they are very modern and well equipped. The property managers are very friendly and helpful and ensure you have a great stay. The two pools are a hit with our kids and one of the pools does not use chemicals so no sore eyes. There is a playground across the road (very quiet road) and the beach is also across the road. Fantastic location.
