We stayed for 3 nights a few weeks ago in the 1 bedroom beachfront apartment (number 5)....and it certainly was beachfront!!! The apartment was clean and very comfortable, with everything we needed, the location was awesome, and great value for money. Horseshoe Bay is in our opinion the place to stay on the island. The facilities at Sails were great,...

We spent a few days here mid September in Apartment 4. What a fantastic place! Very well equipped in a fabulous location. Not only the best one in the complex but arguably the best apartment in Horseshoe Bay! I would highly recommend it for comfort, cleanliness and value. I hope we get the chance to visit again one day

Lovely location close to cafes and the beach. Short drive to beautiful diving beaches. Friendly hosts who gave us helpful advice, beach towels, beach toys for kids and beach chairs. Clean apartment with full kitchen, 1.5 bathrooms, full laundry and free parking. Lovely balcony overlooking the sea and palm trees. We will come again.

Stayed at Sails for 2 nights and had been too late to book sea front, I was expecting not to see the sea but was pleasantly surprised with room 13 which looked down the path to palm trees and sea. Nice 2 bedroom apartment with bed rooms and bathroom down stairs. Up stairs was open plan with nice sitting area...

Excellent family apartment with everything you could need, air conditioned and comfortable. Our two bedroom apartment had two bedrooms and bathroom on the ground floor with kitchen, dining, lounge , balcony and laundry upstairs. Heaps of room! Beachfront, short walk to shops and restaurants. Though stock up at supermarkets at Nelly Bay, we found the local shops rather expensive. Horseshoe...

Great place to stay. Large BBQ area beside the pool. We took advantage of the free loan car and travelled to all the other bays for about 4 hours. You can borrow beach towels and even straw sun hats. Very thoughtful. Our large balcony overlooking the BBQ and pool area even give us a limited sea view even though it...

We had an awesome stay at Sails on Horseshoe. Kathy and Phil were fantastic hosts and couldn't do enough to help out when required. We would definitely recommend a stay in these beautifully self contained clean and tidy appartments. We will definitely be back again one day. Thanks again for a wonderful stay that sadly wasn't at all long enough...

We stayed in a ground floor 2 bed unit facing the beach. The beach at horseshoe bay is on of the best on Magnetic and the complex is very well located, with the beach across the road and the small group of shops located just a block away. The unit complex is older style, low key and well maintained. Would...
