Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay at Diane's beautiful apartment, everything was as described, but better. The views are really fantastic and we too spotted a couple of whales from the ocean side of the apartment. There is everything you need and more in the kitchen, also good quality appliances in the kitchen and laundry. We loved waking up in bed to such a beautiful view and the bed was comfy and big! Diane was great at keeping in touch and even rang us to explain the whereabouts of the heaters, as the Sunshine Coast was experiencing a 30 year cold snap while we were there. We loved to just step outside the door and being right at the beach or river whichever we preferred, and strolling around Point Cartwright is so nice. We definitely hope to be back! Thank you for everything Diane, we really enjoyed staying at your place.

Wonderful location and scenery!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The unit is very comfortable and well set up and everything was lovely. If there was one small thing that could be improved upon was the linen provided which we hired when we booked the unit. Towels were very tired, with pulled threads and ragged hems and passed their use by date. Anywhere we have ever stayed before always has provided two towels per person and with only one each included, drying hair after washing it when returning from pool and beach was not easy. No face washers were provided at all. One hand towel was provided and with two bathrooms it would make sense to provide one in each bathroom for anyone who might use the second toilet.

Owner's Response: Dear Phillip, I'm glad you enjoyed your second stay at Cartwright. I'm sorry there was a problem with the linen provided, I rely on our cleaners to leave out sufficient and appropriate linen for each guest. Unfortunately this didn't happen for your stay. A quick phone call to me would have remedied this situation. When I am next at Cartwright I will check on the quality of the linen so that this does not reoccur. I hope you think of us next time you are planning a stay on the Sunshine Coast. Regards Diane

Amazing views, spacious rooms, well equipped unit in a wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

A great holiday unit that has a wonderful location with incredible views up and down the coast and to the glasshouse mountains and hinterland. It overlooks the wharf and Point Cartwright beach. The point has a lovely walk around to the lighthouse. Shops, cafes and restaurants are located close by and we enjoyed driving to other areas all around the coast. The unit is well equipped and the owners are lovely and easy to communicate with when necessary. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Perfect property for a family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 7 nights in Sept, 2016. We found this property to be exactly what we needed. Right from check-in, everything was a breeze. The property is beautiful, the views are absolutely stunning and the location is just perfect. We loved not being right downtown but still only having a drive of under 10 minutes to get there. Condo was extremely clean and seemed to be well maintained. Had quick access to many great restaurants and grocery stores. The condo is extremely well stocked with anything you could ever want or need. Diane was more than helpful before we arrived in letting us know her favourite markets and where to buy anything that we could desire while in Mooloolaba and upon arrival, she's done a very good job at presenting everything in the area in several binders. Would definitely recommend this unit to anyone looking to stay in the area!
