Every January we book an apartment, kids and grandparent. We have been coming for almost 12 years and for the price, the view, the beautiful grounds and pool - it can’t be beaten. Sunshine Beach is a gorgeous village. Great coffee and food and Noosa just around the corner. Sunseeker is wonderful!!

Managing couple very friendly and efficient. We are repeat visitors and we’re disa Foxtel has been disconnected. The internet wifi is variable and not reliable or good enough for decent connectivity. Go to local restaurants where the free wifi is acceptable. Bear in mind the owners constitution allows them to cancel your bookings up to 60 or 90 days before if they want to use the unit you have been allocated. A potential problem if you have prepaid flights and booked at a very busy time when alternative accommodation is scarce. Otherwise the setting is as gorgeous as ever.

This apartment block had a vacancy when there were minimal vacancies over a school holiday period and it did not cost a fortune. We arrived late and the key was left for us, we left early 3 nights later and we left the key where we found it. In effect we did not see any staff members and this was fine, they did leave hand written instructions on where to park and how to get into our unit and their cleaning policy. The unit is a walk to Sunrise beach shops, the surf club and the beautiful wide Sunrise Beach. There is a courtesy bus from the surf club that will drop you off into Hastings St Noosa but it is more difficult to get it back. The unit itself was quite large with a balcony and side views of the ocean, beds were comfortable and it was relatively clean (just a bit of dust and a few stray hairs from previous occupants). This is not a luxury apartment though but fine for families. The bathroom was small and had a hair dryer. There was only 1 mirror in the main bedroom though and none anywhere else. I probably wouldn't stay here again as I prefer to be closer to Hastings St and so I would book a lot further ahead.

We stayed here in August for 2 weeks in one of the upstairs ocean view apartments. Amazing views, very clean and nice decor with well equipped kitchen. Nice to have parking right below the unit. No complaints - in fact we extended our stay.

This spacious accommodation was clean and welcoming. We had a partial ocean-view apartment and it had all the necessary facilities to make our stay successful. The apartment is not on the beach and is a car-journey away from the shopping centres. There was free Wifi.

Very well located with the beach just a short stroll. But tired and dirty interior takes away from this. Found we were calling almost daily for missing things (not one fork) or broken items. Management were helpful, but I echo past reviews that they could avoid this by having a good deep clean and cheking the rooms thoroughly. Whilst the WIFI is good, beaware only abailable power points are in bathroom or kitchen to charge devices and they are limited.

We stayed in the 2 bedroom part ocean view apartment as we are a family of 6. The room was perfectly set up for us, games in the cupboard, nice sized tv area and a well set up kitchen with everything you could ever need. For us it was a great room but had a few flaws... The dishes in the kitchen were dirty, the tv remote wasn't working well, the fan in the kids room was rusty and very dirty, the toilet brush was gross, the tv in the main bedroom didn't work and was only able to play DVD's. The manager said there was a sign on it stating that, and there may have been but we didn't see it! Perhaps it could've been mentioned on check in, or a sign put in a more obvious spot. We paid over $200 per night and were happy to pay that because apartments catering to large families are difficult to find, but think if the room was a little cleaner it would have been worth it! As for the complex, it was great! kids had a ball in the spa and pool and games area. a lot of people have reviewed the manager as being rude. Look, she isn't the most personable person in the world, and perhaps needs to smile a little more, but we didn't really have an issue.

Had 2 visits close to each other. Pleased the wifi connection had somewhat improved from previous visits. Still a bit slow when a lot of people in the complex, no problem in quiet season. On site management very friendly and helpful. Really good location for Sunshine Beach. If the wind gets up from the south and you want the beach go to Noosa itself which is more sheltered but busier.

A last minute booking bought us to the Sunseeker Lodges in Noosa. We were travelling from Lone Pine Koala sanctuary and timed it well for the check in time of 2-5pm. Check in took a few minutes and we were handed our keys to apartment number 12 and were directed to the allocated parking underneath the apartment. As mentioned in other reviews there isn't a lift but it's only about 12 steps up to the door. The apartment was huge in comparison to the hotels we stayed at so this was welcomed. There was a nice big living/dining/kitchen area looking at to the balcony which had ocean views. There was a master bedroom with walk in closet and separate toilet/shower. Bedroom 2 had twin beds and a nice big wardrobe. There was a separate toilet and another room housing bath/shower and washer/dryer. These came in handy after travelling for 3 weeks. It's a 5-10 minutes walk down to sunshine beach which is not safe to swim at this entrance but 250m up the beach is patrolled so safe. It was very windy the day we went to the beach so didn't stay too long. The rooms were all clean but basic. We felt the apartment was 'unloved', limescale covered toilet flusher, rusty toilet roll holder and some kitchen utensils weren't clean enough. It wouldn't take a lot to correct these things and make the apartment feel loved again. The kitchen did have everything we needed for our stay. The apartment could be modernised to increase it's star rating and charge a higher price. Shops and restaurants are about 10 mins drive away.

We seldom write reviews but unfortunately felt these circumstances warranted one. After check-in we started to unpack but after opening a cupboard in the bathroom were rather surprised to find a bowl of drugs, tobacco, scissors and used paraphernalia (picture attached). We are quite a liberal couple however found this gravely concerning given this was a family apartment made for 4 children & 2 adults, and the floor level cupboard was in easy reach of any children that could have been staying. We reported this to the owners and rather than the expected apology received a rather extended tale about how they had actually found class A drugs in another apartment (Of which the gentleman’s main concern was that a $50 note had been used to take them and left behind?!) All rather odd. He then asked if we would like it removed (as opposed to not having it removed I assume?), which we agreed would be preferred. While this wasn’t the expected response and we weren’t offered any kind of apology/compensation for the incident, but we didn’t want to spoil our holiday, and once the drugs were removed, decided to let it go (despite the apartment being generally a bit dirty but this was somewhat shadowed by the above – see pictures) A day later we ran out of toilet paper at a rather inconvenient time, however on requesting a spare were told we were not entitled to any further toilet rolls as per the contract. Given the circumstances, we didn’t think this was an unreasonable request, but were told that this had “no connection” with anything that had already happened and needed to go buy some as per the contract. After a re-iterating the issues of the previous day our request was rather grudgingly honored, however accompanied with an explanation that what happened previously was “the cleaners fault” and “people have different life choices that we aren’t to judge” and “it’s unfortunate that it upset us”. Wow. As mentioned above, we are a liberal couple that are pretty relaxed about these matters, however the way in which this was addressed was wholly inappropriate and totally unprofessional. The thought that a child could have found this and the potential consequences was something that horrified us and the attitude of the owners was beyond disgusting. On checking out we mentioned that we had on the whole enjoyed our stay but still found it concerning how the issue was handled, to which the lady shouted loudly “I’m not interested, write a bad review I don’t care!” and stormed out the reception area, leaving us speechless. We felt compelled to write this review not in an act of bitterness or revenge, but to simply warn others of the attitude towards these kind of issues at a family based development. Needless to say we won’t be going back :)
