I stayed at windward passage for 5 nights with my granddaughters. The appartments are fantastic, huge, wonderfully appointed and with speculation views of the Pumicestone passage, surrounding beaches and Caloundra. They are close to all the local attractions, shops and restaurants. The kids and I had a ball; the part that impressed most is the hospitality afforded to us by...

We have been coming here since the units were built and it still takes our breathe away when we walk into the unit. So relaxing and the managers are helpful and friendly. We have booked again for next year already.

We stayed for a week in an 8th floor sub-penthouse. Wow!! So much room and with 3 balconies to really let you take in the amazing views across town, the water and the Glasshouse Mountains. Very clean and comfortable and so close to town, walking in along the Coastal Path. It is also so close to 3 major supermarkets as...

Had a great week even though it rained and was windy. Mary and Harley were very friendly and helpful. The views from the apartment were great we were able to watch the shipping go by probably even see whales when they travel north. The apartment was probably the cleanest and most comfortable that I've stayed in for quite some time.

Stayed for 3 weeks in the Penthouse Apartment in May 2016. What a great choice!!! Very clean, roomy and a well catered unit. Everything you can ask for in an apartment. The views where spectacular and every day something different would be happening on the water of the Passage. During our stay we witnessed some magnificent sunrises and sunsets. The...

We stayed a week on the 3rd floor of Windward Passage. An extremely well equipped flat with lots of space. Recently refurbished kitchen. Everything you could possibly need while on holiday.

The view from our 6th floor apartment was expansive and beautiful. Rooms were spacious and clean and the kitchen fairly well equipped. We will definitely stay here again, both for the view and proximity to the beach and shops. The only negative was the manager's lack of local knowledge; however, I assumed she was filling in for the permanent managers....
