The apartment we stayed in was absolutely perfect for my husband and I. Beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The pool was clean and the surrounding gardens were well maintained. Could not fault this quant little resort. Easy walk to the vibrant bars and restaurants along the river.

Very clean apartment, good living space, high speed internet, well equipped kitchen, basic items were provided like dishwashing liquid, coffee, tea, sugar, salt and pepper, shampoo and body wash. Had a nice sized ensuite bathroom. The sofabed was a big help for my little niece who joined us for this holiday due to school holidays. Good facilities like swimming pool, outdoor jacuzzi, and bbq area. Close to supermarket, and other shops. Noosa main beach is only 7 minutes drive. Each apartment unit has designated covered parking space. Booking. com posted the checkout time as 8am-10am but reception was still closed at 8am so we had to leave the key at the key box outside. We were in a hurry to leave for Sunday service. Overall stay was fantastic and relaxing.

Had an overnight stay here as I was attending a funeral. Due to Covid 19 and the whole area bring quiet we were able to check in early which was really appreciated. The owners Jeff and Kate ( hope I’ve remembered the names correctly ) are friendly and helpful advising of places to eat and directions to where we needed to go. The room was comfortable and had everything you needed. It was a self contained unit . The kitchen also had a pod coffee machine with some coffee pods. The location is great - about a 4 minute walk to a shopping centre that has a supermarket, BWS and Uncle Dan’s. Great restaurants nearby and the river waterfront are only a few minutes away. I will certainly stay here again. Some rooms have been renovated and the decor is very inviting . I wish the new owners well and hope you survive the current crisis that we are in.

We stayed for three nights and we’re not disappointed. Whilst the location is out of town the beach is about a 10min walk, but we drove and found parking very easy. We particularly enjoyed watching the turtles off Dolphin Point in Noosa NP.
The room itself was very comfortable, we had room 1, and well equipped. The bed was comfortable with clean and crisp cotton sheets. The air conditioning was efficient. The kitchen is equally well equipped and spacious as is the sitting and dinning area, there are chairs and table outside too. Slightly annoying are the warnings everywhere about pretty much everything including having to pay extra for beach towels.
We were welcomed by the manager who was every helpful, providing tips on where to go etc.
Outside there is a nice pool but don’t expect to swim, it’s too small, good for a plunge after a long day. There is a shower, plenty of sun beds and a bbq area. Even scooters can be hired.
Our only criticisms are the slightly tired appearance of the room decoration, the noise from the road and the wooden boards in the shower which are uncomfortable to stand on.
Recommended but get a room on the first floor and away from the road.

Thank you Jef123456789 for your review and feedback. We are delighted you had a lovely stay and enjoyed your time in and around Noosa - aren't the Turtles magical! Our location and apartments are perfect for couples wishing to explore this area within a budget and as we are only a small complex the pool size fits most of our guests needs without encouraging too much in the way of Marco Polo :) No.1 is one of our standard apartments and is due for renovation in the new year :) Safe Travels, Kind regards, Kate & Geoff

Sad that Sandy and Steve are leaving NRR after three years of amazing service but they deserve a break.
But a big welcome to Geoff and Kate- who have just taken over management. They are so enthusiastic and no doubt will keep up the high standards achieved by Sandy and Steve.
We have stayed at NRR on at least four occasions over the past three years and it such superb value in the Noosaville area. It is ideal for couples with each unit having one bedroom. Over Christmas and school holidays, I have seen a few couples with one or two small children. We always enjoy the relaxing environment and the delightful garden and pool area.
On each of our visits the room as been immaculately clean in every area.
We always try and stay at NRR as in my view it is the best value in Noosaville.

Can't speak highly about our 10 day stay at Noosa River Retreat.

We arrived late in the afternoon after an exhausting day travelling to find music playing and lamps on in our accommodation. It is the small touches that make you feel instantly at home. Everything was so clean, beautifully decorated and everything was provided that you could ever need. The amenities reflect the standard of the room and we enjoyed many hours by the pool.

Kate and Geoff are so welcoming and can't do enough for you and are truly lovely thoughtful people.

Very centrally located and walking distance to bars, restaurants and easy to access all Noosa has to offer with a short drive.

Would we stay again?......Absolutely!!

Thank you so much for your amazing review. It is so wonderful to read such lovely feedback and we're are delighted you had such a great stay. We loved having you here and thoroughly enjoyed our chats. Most guests go home after a holiday with t-shirt or a souvenir stubbie holder... you went home with a Cooper lol :) Hope we get to meet him some day. Take care and our warmest regards to the three of you. Kate, Geoff & Baxter

Spotlessly clean unit with great amenities! We loved our stay and would highly recommend this place. Its close to the river front (easy walk) and if you're keen you can walk all the way to Hasting's Street too. If not, you can take the loop which stops right next to the resort. Kate and Geoff were very welcoming and explained to us in detail about how to get around in Noosa and the things we could do during our stay including places to eat.
Thank you both for making our stay such a pleasure.

Stayed here for a week with my B13 and G10 and we loved it to bits. Clean, comfortable with everything we needed. Great location, a little walk from the main drag but easily accessible to everything and after a busy day at the river or beach a fab pool the kids loved! Owners (& Mildred of course) so delightful! We will be back if my kids have a say! Thanks for having us!! Nicole

We had a wonderful stay here! Apartments are lovely and spacious. It was so nice when we arrived to walk into the room with music playing, lamps on and the beautiful oil smell. The birthday gift we ordered was fantastic along with the excellent towel creation of the swans!!! Impressive!! Great walking distance to cafes and the riverfront. Friendly staff. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend to others.

We were delighted with our pay 3 nights stay 4 deal. The best in town for such a top quality room. We stayed in a deluxe unit which was beautiful. We were fortunate to have a lovely quiet clientele in other rooms so our stay really ticked a lot of boxes. My only recommendation is that if traffic noise bothers you pack some earplugs to help with that. Bed really comfy and everything provided to make our trip perfect. Thanks to the wonderful hosts here. They do an amazing job .
