Waterview Resort
Reviewed 19 December 2012

I have stayed at the Waterview Resort several times a year for the last 3 years, it has the most amazing water views and the location is great for those who want an easy walk to shopping, restaurants and both surf and calm water beaches. The resident managers are very friendly and helpful and the units very well appointed and very clean. I love coming back each time and know I can rely on having a wonderful stay and have and would recommend it to anyone!

Room Tip: I really love Unit 8 as it has the most comfortable couch!

I have stayed at Waterview a number of times with my family, friends and by myself. It never disappoints. It is close to every thing I want on a relaxing trip away: patrolled swimming beaches, beaches for relaxing and strolling, parks (even one across the road for a game of cricket), shops for both looking through and groceries, movies and restaurants. Best of all, I've never had to use my car to get to any of these things. Enough about the location, on the the rooms.

The rooms all have fantastic views, though we usually stay in unit 8. The unit is always clean and ready to call home for the length of our stay. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils and the living areas are spacious and comfortable. The bedrooms are very comfortable, I get a better night sleep at the Waterview than I do at home! The on-sight managers, Howard and Sue, are extremely helpful and always go out of their way to to answer any questions or fix any problems, which is always appreciated and makes for a great trip away.

If none of this has made your decision any easier, the main reason to stay at the Waterview is the view. The unobstructed view of the beach and park area across the road is amazing. It always takes my breath away on arrival and makes leaving very difficult.

All in all, the Waterview is a fantastic location for your break away. I would recommend it to any one.

You are absolutely right Peta, the name of the building says it all - "water view". At the moment I'm looking out from reception at the king-tide waves splashing on the rocks at the boardwalk just over the road. The sun is shining and it's a perfect day. See you when you next visit and thank you for reviewing the Waterview.

Hi! This is the 12th year our family has been coming to Waterview Resort. We love the location - walking distance to both the surf at Kings Beach, and quieter waters on Happy Valley and Bulcock Beach. We're drawn back every year by the fantastic water views, the friendly and helpful managers (Howard and Sue), comfortable clean apartments, and the excellent accessibility to shops, cafes, restaurants, parks and coastal walking tracks. We thoroughly recommend Waterview Resort to anyone as a wonderful place to stay, and especially to families (our children have grown up coming to these apartments).

We as managers at the Waterview are so lucky to be in this fantastic location; as long as we are helpful and pleasant the view and prme position do the rest.

We stay at the Waterview every year. Amazing views and fresh sea breezes from the balcony and only a short walk to the beach. The managers are extremely helpful and welcoming and are a pleasure to deal with. The rooms are very well appointed and the kitchen is stocked with all the utensils you could possibly need. I would definitely recommend the Waterview Resort to anyone traveling to Caloundra and can't wait to go back!!

Room Tip: Room 8 has amazing views and great sea breeze throughout the day and night

What a wonderful quiet place to stay with our young family. There is a beautiful family atmosphere. A quick walk to IGA and amazing Thai food. The council does an amazing job of ensuring the park across from the hotel is clean. Management were extremely helpful, we've already booked for next year!
