Latest Premium Three Bedroom Apartment with Noosa Views

By | accommodation noosa, beach holiday, Hastings street, Laguna Bay, Noosa Accommodation, Noosa Apartments, Noosa Crest Resort, Noosa Resort, Noosa River, Three Bedroom Apartment | No Comments

Three Bedroom Premium ApartmentPremium ApartmentHot off the press – I just picked up new photos of the latest renovated premium Apartment and have to share.  The day was glorious, perfect for sitting out on the balcony and watching the world go by.  Maybe I’m bias (not really) but Noosa Crest has the best view in the whole of Noosa.  The difference from us and other Resorts is they only face North as we pan from East (Noosa Nationa Park) to North (Hastings street, Laguna Bay) and then west where you can watch the beautiful sunsets on the Noosa River.  And another difference is we have no buildings in front, we are the last resort on the hill heading towards Hastings street with a private boardwalk to the town centre.     

The owners changed the whole look of the apartment including the three bedrooms and decor going more for a contempory look.  We had some gorgeous models come in and enjoy the use of the apartment while the photographer snapped away.

Enjoy the photos, I have some more coming…..
