“Fantastic beach house!”
Reviewed 2 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012
people found this review helpful

Although I typically read dozens of reviews before booking a place, we had recently rented a house a few streets away from this property. So although there were no reviews of Sands beach house when I booked it, I was pretty confident it would be okay. Well, the "risk" paid off--this house is fantastic! It's brand new, immaculate, very comfortable, and literally across the street from the boardwalk that takes you to the beach (although you can't see the ocean, you can hear it from the house). In order to rent the house we had to prepay for our week stay, and provide a security deposit. I waited until our security deposit was returned to write my review so I could let other travellers know that the entire rental process went without a hitch. If you're looking for a house at Mount Coolum beach you needn't look any further--we will gladly return the next time we're in the area. The house had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable (free wifi, huge fridge...the pictures and description provided on the website are perfectly accurate and will give you a clear sense of the house and amenities). Keep in mind that you're renting a house in a quiet neighbourhood--there is no room service or daily housekeeping. Also, there is no life guard on duty for the stretch of beach in front of the house (perhaps during the summer holidays there is one though), so if you want to swim between the flags you'll have to walk 10 or so minutes down the beach (and then eat at Bulli cafe once you're there :). The house is close to a grocery store, and only a short drive from Coolum Beach which has many restaurants and shops. For an amazing Thai meal try Spirit House (about 30 minutes away, but definitely worth it).

As you mention, the beach directly at the front of the Sands beach house is patrolled from 9am during school holidays. Sometimes the summer patrol extends through to March.

We pride ourselves on keeping the beach house in excellent condition and are pleased that you found it in great shape. We are very glad to hear you enjoyed your stay (that's what it's all about after all) and hope you are able to return.
