Lots of space, comfy beds, large bedrooms and bathrooms, spotlessly clean, and very convenient location...5 minutes to a ferry stop, 20 minutes walk to town.Highly reccomended
As a Brit visiting Australia my family from Brisbane and from Melbourne met me in Noosa and we stayed at Cooran Court. The house is beautifully appointed, comfortable and exceptionally well equipped. With 7 of us staying of mixed ages we never felt in each other’s way and were really comfortable. With Hastings Street a 15 minute walk and the Ferry stop 5 minutes away it was easy to get around. The taxi firm recommended were also highly efficient and helpful.
The house is exactly as the pictures show and we had a wonderful stay. We all would love to return.
It is the second time we have stayed at this Noosa Beach house.We were pleasantly surprised as the house has been completely renovated since our stay last year.A great location only a 5 minute level walk to Hastings street and only minutes to some great restaurants(Wasabi a must) on the river.
We have already booked for next year!!
We stayed at 9 Cooran Court in February/March 2017,myself, my wife, our son and daughter in law together our 20 month old twin grandchildren. Before I put this review on line I thought it was only right that I should contact the agents beforehand which I did but as they had already been paid they showed no real interest at all.
Generally the property follows its description and looks more or less as it did in the photographs. The location was excellent as it meant we could walk to the beach and Hastings Street in 20 minutes.
Unfortunately there was one serious problem which really spoiled our holiday. The first time we used the pool, we immediately realised that the property could have been a death trap not only for the boys, but for adults as well.. When the tiles both inside the house and outside around the pool got wet, as they will with a swimming pool, it was like an ice rink as the tiles were NOT non-slip. On two occasions one of our grandsons slipped and cracked the back of his head hard on the tiles and the other slipped but luckily was caught by me as I also slipped in the process but managed to break my fall with one hand. We were lucky that the injuries were not more serious otherwise there would have been a claim for compensation. As a result we were unable to use the pool for the rest of our stay. Quite frankly what is the point of renting a house with a pool if its too dangerous to use it.
Unfortunately not using the pool didn't avoid the problem as we had some rain during the week and the outside tiles were still too slippery to walk on especially in bare feet.
We even had a problem in the kitchen area with the tiles when water was either splashed or spilt on the tiles. Unfortunately the difficulties caused by the slippery tiles detracted from our holiday.
In addition there were two other concerns. The first was the presence of cockroaches in the bed in the master bedroom on the night we arrived.
The second was the appearance of rats each evening particularly when we were eating outside. I mentioned this to the maintenance guy who told me that it was probably due to the recent dry weather. The rats were totally unconcerned that humans were around and didnt scare easily. This again was a big issue with us because of our 20 month old boys but also because we really didn't want to barbecue and increase the likelihood of the rats joining us, which they did on the two occasions that we did.
I called at the agents office midway through our stay and although the lady was very pleasant and friendly she couldn't offer any solution to the problems.
On our return home from holiday I emailed the agents, Richardson & Wrench, who in summary said they were sorry for our inconvenience but the tiles had been treated with a non-slip coat and it would be done again, we should expect cockroaches in the beds, and they were probably possums not rats. We all saw them and know a rat when we see one. In other words they had our money and weren't interested in compensating us for our problems.
