Holidays are special times to be treasured, create amazing holiday memories at Portobello By The Sea. Affordable Caloundra Holiday apartments, just an hour’s drive north of Brisbane. Portobello By The Sea is located opposite beautiful Dicky Beach, an unspoilt stretch of sun-drenched white sand, on Queensland’s magnificent Sunshine Coast. Not commercialised, this quiet area is the perfect place to relax on the patrolled beach. Relax in one of the spacious one, two or three bedroom apartments set amongst lush tropical gardens. Portobello apartments are designed with you – the holiday-maker – in mind. They are fully self contained and feature an open-plan design with sliding doors and large timber decks or private balconies to enjoy the sea breezes. All apartments have Cable TV and DVD players, and are all air-conditioned. The furniture and artwork throughout the apartments has been specifically selected and designed for Portobello By The Sea to create a stylish and practical look throughout that emphasises a beachside home away from home, influenced by the natural holiday environment of Dicky Beach. Stay connected with 1gb of FREE WiFi per day.
We love to welcome guests when they arrival at this perfect location, it is very hard to live here, ;). Our guests enjoy walking along the beach just as much as we do.
