Just back from a wonderful weeks' stay at Gulf Gate. We had unit number 303...it was very comfortable. Large open plan kitchen/dining area/lounge. Flat screen TV in lounge with as many channels as you could wish for. Nicely decorated and very comfortable. The kitchen was fully functional and there was a washer/dryer situated in a cupboard off the dining area (always a plus for beach towels etc).
We had a one bedroomed apartment..my daughter took the sofa bed in the living room...she said it was very comfortable. I took the bedroom...super king bed, older style tv (not that it mattered) and walk in dressing room. The whole unit was immaculate and the bedroom was no exception. Extremely comfortable bed!!
We had a full bathroom with bath and shower and two sinks, lots of cupboard space. There was also a small toilet room, again with plenty of storage space. The layout of both bathrooms was designed very well..maximum usage of available space to ensure convienience.
On to the balcony...oh boy!! What a View!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You couldn't get closer to that most beautiful beach...sitting out in the morning and at night was such a joy. Amazing location!!
GG is a mins walk from shops, restruants and bars. Perfect . I only took the car out once in the evening..so easy to walk everywhere. We had an undercover parking spot allocated to us..perfect'
There is a pool and bbq area but I didn't use that because I love the beach and headed straight there every day . The pool is small but ideal for folk with young kids, I saw a lot of families having fun at the pool. I hired sunloungers from Waverunners, right infront of the condos..run by lovely people, the two lads who worked there were just so nice and so friendly (as was the gentleman who owns the outfit). $15 for two loungers and parasol. They offer jet-ski's and sail boats but I didn't indulge :)
All in all..a great value for money accomodation. I would return there anytime..loved it!!
