Beautiful location with everything at your doorstep. Great facilities for families with both older and younger children. View from apartment was stunning. Could have been cleaner and there was a lack of kitchen equipment.

Great view and position. Rooms we stayed in need a facelift. Some could be different due to strata title. Apartments do not have aircon in bedrooms which are very hot in bedrooms that are on western side of apartments.

Clean and comfortable unit over looking the pool and beach close to the marina and boat club. Staff were friendly at check in. The only problem I had was the shower over the spa was difficult to get in and out off due to a knee injury. We would definitely stay here again.

Such a perfect location. Right on the beach. Waking to the sound of the waves was amazing. As people also resided here it made the stay a little bit awkward. Some of the residents didn't seem happy to have the children around and making noise. We made the most of it despite this and had a wonderful time. Thank you...

Staff were friendly & our unit was clean. Nice location and good facilities for our young family. The unit itself was quite outdated and did not have security screens/ doors. A few small maintenance issues due to the age of the unit. Overall a good place to stay with kids.

Relaxing, quiet stay for my wife and I. Easy walks along the beach and esplanade were a real pleasure. Just what we wanted as over 70s for a whole three weeks. The view from the front beach side was so good each morning and we loved sitting out and having a cuppa together. We hope to be back next year.

Clean apartment with good views, quiet and well positioned. Just if you are going to use the provided BBQ's be aware you have to pay for them and might be better off going to a local park where they are free. Be aware that the under cover parking is a garage and may not fit a 4WD or car with...
