This was our second time at Sandcastles and we have loved it both times. We were in room 406 the first time, with the rooftop and enjoyed our private barbecue area, though at Easter it was cold at night on the rooftop. This time we stayed in room 405, a smaller room but with awesome views. The only thing separating the room from the beach is the surf club. We used the rooftop more as it was summer and warm at night. Sandcastles is very close to the main swimming beach, a short walk to cafes and restaurants, a slightly longer (but easy) walk to the marina for fresh seafood or a couple of restaurants and Coles is also close enough to walk. We park the car and walk everywhere! The path to the lighthouse is a lovely walk to start the morning off. Bridgette and Charlie are wonderful hosts being both very friendly and very helpful. We will definitely be returning to Sandcastles.

Fantastic and thank you for a great review of your time with us. Our Rooftop Apartment 405 and 406 are front facing and a firm guest favorites for their fabulous views so we are glad you were able to spend more of your time with us enjoying the rooftop - our Rooftop Apartments are amazing ! Its a wonderful way to start the day with a walk to the Mooloolaba Spit - the new boardwalk that has just opened on the way to Alex Heads is another gorgeous walk. We look forward to welcoming you for your Sunshine Coast fix All the best for 2022 Regards Bridgette and Charlie

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.

Hi and thanks for taking the time to review you stay with us. You booked our Standard apartment via Booking.com. The description for our Standard Apartments on Booking.com is worded as follows: "Standard Apartments are on lower floors and are older in style with restricted views. All apartments include a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom, laundry facilities, flat screen TV with Foxtel, balcony and free WiFi." We work hard to ensure we are as clear as we can be in apartment descriptions as it is imperative to us that guests expectations are always met and there no suprises or let downs. We only have 3 standard apartments in the complex and you were allocated the apartment type you booked. We are sorry you did not see the value given our location on the beach however, understand we are not for everyone. Kindest Regards Bridgette & Charlie

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.
