Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Cindy O wrote a review Aug 2022

We spent 2 weeks in the Apartment, relaxing in sunshine and enjoying relief from the cold, wet winter down south. Our apartment was spotless and well appointed including full size fridge. All bedding provided and the staff were all very friendly and accommodating. From our large balcony (on level 3), we had sensational views and spent the days watching whales, dolphins and surfers using the very comfortable outdoor furniture. We fell asleep to the gentle sound of waves lapping the shores and woke to some of the best sunrises I've seen. Within easy walking distance there are several great restaurants, bottle shops, local general store and the local surf club is just across the road (patrolled beach). With bus stop outside, Noosa is close enough if you want the high end shopping, Woolies, Cinema etc but we personally really enjoyed the "quieter" area of Sunshine Beach for a more relaxed vacation. The complex has "designated" undercover parking (numbered for each apartment) which is a big plus, along with a few spots for visitor car parking which was appreciated. . The Managers were fantastic to deal and provided easy instructions for our "after-hours arrival". Overall, we were very impressed with our stay and will certainly be returning in the future. Thank you to Lou and Derek.

This is the 4th time we have stayed here. There are new Managers' Lou and Derek and they are lovely. They are very accommodating and they are very happy to talk to you and help in any way. This is the first time we have stayed at apartment number 2. We had fantastic ocean views and a spa bath on the balcony. Very spacious. We have previously stayed in apartments' 1 and 5. Looking forward to our next stay.
What we especially like about Costa Nova is that you have your own entrance and car space, nobody is running past your door. Its quiet, has uninterrupted views of the ocean. The surf club is diagonally across the road and there are several restaurants, cafes and shops just around the corner approximately a 3 min walk. There is a bus stop across the road so what more do you want. We relax and we enjoy the views and go home feeling we have had a great holiday. There are lots of places of interest within an hour to explore. We always go to a new place each time. A great place and a great location.

This must be one of the best holiday rentals at Sunshine Beach. Directly across from the newly renovated surf club with its wonderful restaurant and bar, all rooms have magical views over the ocean. The apartment we stayed in was very spacious and well appointed. I have to give a shout out to the wonderful managers, Louise and Derek. Louise is a smiling, ever happy presence and nothing is too difficult for Derek. He gave me a tour of the complex and gave me and our family some interesting insights into the cultural and aboriginal heritage of the area. Plus both managers were able to provide us with superb recommendations for restaurants at Sunshine Beach and Noosa. I am a proud ethical vegetarian and they were able to identify options that satisfied both me and my wife, who happens to be an unrepentant carnivore (but enough about that!)
I cannot recommend Costa Nova highly enough!

Excellent location, well maintained. 2nd bedroom at rear of building small and claustrophobic with 1 small window high up. Small bath in main bathroom. All this OK as we are a couple and not a family but the blankets on all beds are synthetic, not wool, and not sufficient to keep us warm.

The beauty of Costa Nova was the management by Lou and Derek combined with the perfection of Costa Nova. The perfect combination. We have been staying at many apartments but this combination was the best of the best. The apartment of 2 bedrooms was huge, clean and classy. Every request was handled immediately. We stayed 2 weeks. The ocean was so close you felt you could touch it, smell it, taste it, and hear it: perfect. So beautiful and relaxing. Our hosts went the extra mile by driving us to our choice of restaurant. Over the top and just fabulous. We will miss Lou and Derek. Lots of wonderful coffee shops and restaurants, plus the amazing Sunshine Beach newly renovated Surf Club. Colleen Pask

My partner and I were looking forward to a long weekend away and thoroughly researched places at Sunshine Beach to stay that would give us a lovely view. It was a toss up between this place and somewhere else but I really liked the fact that we could view the actual apartment we would be staying in as well as the view.

I would have to agree with another review on this site and say the view was rather disappointing with a big tree in front as well as an ugly telegraph pole. I have again and again inspected the photos on site for apartment 6 and am at a loss as to how they manage to show the view minus the big telegraph pole right in the middle of it. This is clearly a play on the camera shot and quite unfair to people choosing the apartment they wish to stay in based on the view.

I have delayed posting this review to think carefully about what to say and to look for something positive to contribute.

This property has a wonderful location with easy access to the beach and great views to the East over the Pacific Ocean.

That said, lets deal with a few home truths. Average housekeeping standards, average appointments, average linen and towels...everything here is only just good enough, except the price. Costa Nova is known amongst our friends as Costa Lota.

This is our second stay in about 12 months and there will not be a third. This property has nothing exceptional to recommend it other than it's location.

Poorly managed, poorly appointed and poorly maintained. There are a great many better options than this on the fabulous northern end of the Sunshine Coast.

The building itself is a little dated, like much of the apartment accommodation on the Gold and Sunshine Coasts. So the décor and ambience of your unit depends on how recently it's been refurbished. But if that matters to you, the Costa Nova website is unusually detailed in providing photos of specific apartments. Make sure you have a look. Our unit was large and a bit basic, but absolutely fine. The managers are very friendly and helpful. Sunshine Beach is the perfect Aussie family holiday spot in my book. Miles and miles of wide surf beach. The National Park is a walk away. (Careful of the nude beach if that offends.) The glamour, expense and perfect beach of Noosa Heads is a 10 minute bus ride away with the bus at the back door of the apartments. SB itself has a nice little shopping strip with 5 or 6 places to eat. (Try the cool little outdoor bar with tapas etc) The big Surf Club is 100m away with cheap drinks and a great outdoor area on the beach. Have lunch there. Costa Nova overlooks the road and the beach. Trees obscure the beach view a bit in the units lower down. Nice smallish pool. This place is great.

Upon arriving into our lovely room, we found everything we could need plus stunning views to the beach and beyond.
Our room was extremely clean and well appointed, and a feature that gave an extra special touch was how our towels were folded (very clever).
Patsy and Glen were lovely and friendly and were very informative to local activities in the area.
We were very impressed with all the facilities and the cleanliness of Costa Nova and intend to return whenever we can.
We have no hesitation in recommending this resort to any of our family and friends.

On the plus side these apartment units are large and well equipped. We stayed in unit 5 which is a corner unit on the first floor. It had a nice view of the ocean but a higher up unit would probably have slightly better views. The apartment block is conveniently close to cafes and restaurants. The king size bed was very comfortable. The only down side were only minor things really. There had obviously been some modernisation but in general it does feel a bit dated. There was a designated smoking spot outside our unit which caused cigarette smoke to blow into our unit which was disgusting as non smokers.In the kitchen there were lots of tea bags but minimal coffee (first world problem🙂)
There are no 1 bedroom apartments here so sadly you end up paying for a second bedroom you won’t use which is a shame and a bit expensive. I would definitely recommend staying here
