Travelling for my children sport is always hectic. But the spacious 2 bedroom apartment was perfect. It had everything we needed. Washer and dryer and an airdrying rack for jerseys. Not all places have these. Kitchen had everything that was needed. Best of all ot had thr best views of the beach. I spent most of my time staring at it from the spacious lounge didnt need to go to thr balcony really to appreciate. Both managers have great customer service and were very nice and helpful!

Gorgeous views!

Pros: Location and views
Location: Local shops just a short walk away, beach right across the road, perfect for toddlers and paddle boarders! Kings beach 10 min walk
We were lucky to be upgraded to the penthouse! Amazing views of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, Bribie and the ocean! Nice and close to everything

It was fair

I can see that they have renovated the unit. Yet there are still some features that are dated. The cleaners need to ensure they clean thoroughly. I'm sorry, but pubic hair next to the toilet is VERY off putting!!!! It really spoiled my initial experience. The staff were very pleasant and helpful.

What A View

Pros: The proximity to the Main Street and the Restaurants, Cafes and Bars
Cons: Nothing
Location: The units are across the road from Happy Valley Park which has a great walking/running track.
We booked the Waterview after seeing if online, one can only say we were not disappointed. The unit was large with a large balcony looking straight out to sea and parkland across the road. The units are within 500 meters of the Main Street and many great restaurants, cafes and bars. The Managers Katie and Paul are just delightful people and bend over backwards to assist you.
