After reading your October issue on “Kids’ Stuff”, I was inspired to write to you about our own recent holiday with children. After giving birth to our second daughter, my wife was in need of a very relaxing holiday for a three-week-old and two-and-a-half-year-old that was inexpensive and entertaining for both kids and tired adults.
We found a wonderful resort in Marcoola on the Sunshine Coast – Atlantis Marcoola. For a reasonable price we had a beautiful two-bedroom apartment with a wide balcony overlooking a long, uncrowded, peaceful beach. There was no road between our resort and the beach, which is very unusual for the Sunshine Coast. The facilities were excellent, with a 30m pool, wading pool for kids, spa, basketball court and tennis court. It was warm enough to swim every day, despite being October. The staff were friendly and made us feel welcome.
Marcoola is 5min from the airport, 25min south of Noosa, 15min north of Maroochydore and 30min from the beautiful hinterland (eg, Montville). It’s a small town with only a few shops and a handful of resorts. We were perfectly situated to enjoy the activities of the region. We’d recommend Atlantis to any family with children.
