Looks may be deceiving from the outside, but this place is fantastic for families. Ground floor apartment looks right onto the beach. Two bedrooms, large living area, spacious kitchen, modern décor. Very well equipped for entertaining. Undercover parking, even for a 4WD. Owners are wonderful and have done an amazing job. Keep up the great work guys, this place is...

Deat Shez773 Thank you for your lovely review. We agree it is a hidden gem, and your first appearance driving by does not really encapsulate the beauty of what is "Sandcastles on the Beach". Your feedback in relation to the apartment in heartening to hear as our apartment owners take a lot of pride in the presentation of their apartments...

We spent a lovely few days in this apartment overlooking the gorgeous Bagara beach. Walking distance to the town centre. The apartment was very clean. Beds were comfy but the pillows were a bit hard. The hot water ran out quickly. There was nobody on reception to help with sightseeing etc. Books were available to read but a box of...

We had the 2 bedroom unit ground floor which was a bit gloomy. The windows in the bedrooms haven't be washed for months and couldn't see out of them. Lights missing in the kitchen and light not working in the 2nd bedroom. The beds were great. The oven dish was dirty. There was no DVD Player and no bedside clock...

We have just stayed at Sandcastles resort over the Easter Long Weekend and had a fabulous stay. The resort is literally right on the beach, The unit was clean and spacious and the onsite manager was extremely welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. Will most definitely be back next year!

Broken draw in kitchen and some kind of liquid splattered on some walls. Office was not contactable by either at complex or by phone. In add was described as stunning. pmsl

We had a two bedroom suite on the third (top) floor overlooking the sea. It was perfect for what we wanted and there were obvious improvements from the previous visit a couple of years earlier. Everything was very clean although there were a few little things that need fixing which didn't affect us at all really eg towel rails falling...

Stayed at this place when it was in its prime. Has gone a long way downhill since then but new owners have taken over in the last 12 months and you can see the efforts. The rooms are really nice and the public areas need lots of love. Lots of things are happen and you can see the changes. Nice...

Yep, back to Bargara and we have found an awesome little complex that had direct beach access, ground floor apartments and a family friendly way of life. The kids literally where in heaven with their ability to play at the beach, enjoy the private grassed area or relax inside. Everyone is buggered after our short break, but we will be...

A sandcastles is truly a hidden gem on the Bargara beach. After getting off the cruise ship we were on, we made enquiries on the beach about the best section of the beach with good amenities. At the Polly's coffee shop, someone redirected us to the Sandcastles and we thought it would be nice to checkout the place. Once there,...
