We booked through Airbnb so were surprised to discover it was a motel. In fact our 2-bedroom apartment was more like a maisonette with 2 large bedrooms upstairs and kitchen-lounge and bathroom on the ground floor. It was very comfortable and had everything for an extended self-catering holiday, including washing machine (though we actually only stayed overnight). Restaurants are nearby...

Well located and very clean, well maintained property. Modern with comfortable beds, spacious room and bath, air conditioning, free wi-fi, TV. And yes, each room faces the water and it is beautiful. Not much for self-catering, just the bare minimum, but that worked for us. Where this property really stands out is it's proximity to Raymond Island. Literally a 1...

Tucked away and off the beaten track but well worth a short or long stay, this motel is one out of the box. Well appointed, spacious, beautiful waterfront views, value for money and friendly staff etc etc. Would highly recommend.

Friendly greet and met by host. Plenty off street parking, and a very short stroll into the main strip. The fairy service to Raymond Island is across the road, which is very handy. The property is positioned on the water, were you can sit back and watch water crafts sail by. BBQ facility well placed with easy excess from the...

My wife and I stayed at the Mariners Cove motel on our way back from a visit to Melbourne. We took a nice room with water frontage and great views of the water and the Marina. It was great. The room was generous in size and very well presented. Also the people at reception, who were the owners, I think,...

Exceptional value for money, clean and well appointed rooms and close to shops, restaurants and cafes. Quiet location with great outlooks over the canals and towards Raymond island. Staff were most helpful and cheery.

Beginning of February 2017, we rented a two-floor, two-bedroom apartment. The good things first - the web site is by far the best. The apartment is spacious and the furniture OK. Badly, the apartment was not clean and the washing machine stank. One air conditioning unit on the lower level for a two level apartment is just ridiculous (ground floor...
