Great place to stay for either an over night stay or a week long family get away. Great views overlooking the beach and views over to Fraser Island and overlooking the pool. Room has great facilities including Tea/Coffee making facilities and basic cooking facilities. The only "downside" was that the freezer was choked up with ice and I had to...

Property is great for families right on the beach with 2pools playground tennis courts. Walking distance to cafes and clubs. Downside not happy with room. Found a used sanitary pad under one of the beds!!! Door handles broken and towel rail holders broken. Staff were apologetic and helpful but still put a damper on things.

Great views and location. Apartments were clean with lots of space. Was very hot when we stayed and the air-conditioner in the living room struggled to reach the bedrooms. Fans in the bedrooms also rattled which didn't help sleeping at night.

A good place to stay if you are looking for a budget holiday, clean and comfortable but a little dated. No aircon in the master bedroom made it difficult to sleep and the fans were very noisy. Pools food for kids.

Room was clean and tidy and modern. Great location - close to beach and restaurants. Games room a disappointment for the children as old machines and some not working or missing parts. Also no air conditioners in bedroom despite being advertised as air conditioned.

Great place to stay with the kids as it is not far from the beach at all and there is park near enough. It is a great walking distance to the pier as well. Love also that you are able to access bbq facilites however dont forget your 20c to get the BBQ started.

Spent a week here and found rooms clean and tidy and welook appointed. Awesome view of the marina and Fraser island. Even had a garage so car was out of the weather. About a ten minute walk to the pier and a few good restaurants nearby.

Great place for a family holiday. Plenty of time for fishing, swimming and having a friendly game of tennis. Location was excellent easy walk along The Esplanade. Easy access to the beach from the apartment.
