Great location, close proximity to the beach and with a pool. Minutes walk from point lookout cafes, shops and gorge walk. Very spacious accomodation in good condition and well appointed. Balcony views lovely. Would have given it 5 stars if aircon!

Great accomodation, very clean and tidy and comfortable. We had a 3 bedroom apartment that was perfect for our family of 4. Pool and BBQ area are an added bonus (how do you keep that BBQ so clean!). Location is perfect - ocean views, close to the beach and shops and restaurants and of course the North Gorge walk (we...

Thanks Peter and Sharon. We had a great holiday and will be back again next year. Nothing was too much trouble and hope you have a fantastic year. Our rooms were clean and spacious, with great views of the ocean.

We have stayed at Samarinda every year for the last 4 years over the New Years week. 8 families stay every year. This was our LAST year. We have stayed in pretty much every apartment and apart from 2 of them, they are sorely lacking in basic amenities. Virtually none have adequate fans so be prepared to be very hot!!...

We were not prepared to rebook this group next year due to their noisy, inconsiderate behaviour on several occasions. On New Years Eve, the writer of the above review was decidedly aggressive when asked politely by the manager to keep the noise down and at 1am to vacate the pool area. It is interesting that now the apartments are lacking...

We spent 4 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment at the resort. The apartment was spacious, clean and comfortable with great Ocean Views. Peter the manager and his wife are a lovely couple, very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed walking to the local restaurants and shops. Its an easy jog down to the beach where a beautiful board walk offers...

We visited with family from overseas and had a fantastic stay, 3 adults a teenager and a baby. The Managers were very friendly and our apartment had everything we needed. The view from our top floor apartment was amazing, we enjoyed watching whales while having breakfast. The beach was a very close walk down the hill and there are a...

Recently took a large group to Stradbroke Island and stayed in 2 of the larger units. Very clean, well appointed, and lacked for nothing. Perfectly positioned with gorgeous view of main beach. Comfy beds & loads of room. Definitely recommend. Like most places on Straddie, the mosquitoes come out at night, so take repellent.

Stayed for 4 nights in a high level 3 bedroom apartment. There were only 2 of us but they just closed off the other bedrooms. That meant that we had an amazing view over the water. Even saw humpback whales offshore! The apartment was just great with a full kitchen, lounge and a great balcony to sit and enjoy the...
