Stunning views from our 5th floor apartment. Very spacious - 2 bed 2 bath and great kitchen lounge and secure parking. Quiet part of the town. Close to all the amenities we needed. Beach right in front of hotel. Great Cafe restaurant on-site. Short walk to rent bikes, canoes, boats. Loved it. We'll be back 😃

After a last minute change in our holiday plans we weren't expecting to find accommodation but were lucky enough to book a unit at The Moorings. We were in the 3 level walk up building, lack of lift didn't bother us & we found it much quieter than the larger building. Had a great view over the passage to Caloundra...

The unit was just what you expect from a coast apartment, basic and clean. We had a ground floor apartment which was great with 2 kids, they could ride their scooters and play outside. Our apartment had ducted air conditioning which was great as I think ground floor meant less sea breeze coming through. This unit could do with a...
