We spent two weeks here, which was plenty of time to look around and get to know the area, which is very beautiful - miles and miles of white sand and blue ocean. On the one occasion we visited the beach at Noosa Heads, it was so crowded we couldn’t wait to get back to peaceful Peregian. But if you want a change and a bit more going on, then the beach at Coolum is very nice, with a good choice of restaurants and bars within a two minute walk.
We were very pleased with the apartment - good sized, open plan lounge/ dining and very well-equipped kitchen area; however, the lounge decor was a bit dismal and would have benefited from a makeover.
The bedroom was a decent size, but the wardrobes were half full of stuff we did not need, like lots and lots of extra blankets, big bags full of the owner’s gear, surf boards, boogie boards, camp chairs, a sun umbrella and an ironing board. There were two full length locked storage cupboards in the hallway, and I felt one of these should have been made available for all this stuff, thereby leaving the bedroom wardrobes free of clutter. Also, there were only 5 coat hangers! Not really enough for two people for two weeks, but we managed!
The toilet/shower room was functional; the shower had good pressure and the vanity top was large with plenty of plugs for hairdryer, etc., and lots of under-basin storage. Again, however, the decor was very depressing and well past it’s sell-by date.
On a more positive note: the utility area was excellent, as was the large verandah, from which you could clearly hear the surf and catch glimpses of the ocean through the trees. If you were too lazy to cross the road to the beach, especially after a busy day sightseeing or playing golf, then the pool area was a quiet and pleasant place to relax.
Given the price, I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment, but feel the owner is missing a trick and could get more for it if it was refurbished.
