Older style property nicely renovated to a modern standard, within walking distance to quiet beach. I was not sent check in instructions and arrived at 5:05pm when the office had closed but luckily a staff member was still present and assisted. There was no chux cloth provided so I had to fight off ants crawling on the bench tops overnight until I could get a chux the next morning. Also the paper towel holder had about 5 towels left and no replacement was left. Didn't particularly like the soap and shampoo dispenser on the walls, I would prefer having individual products provided. Overall, it was very good value for the location and amenity compared to other accommodation in the area and I would return.

Great location right on the beach. It's an older property but very well maintained and the location is perfect. Staff are great and very helpful. The BBQ area next to the pool is one of the best we have seen. Each apartment is individually owned so there is quite a bit of difference in decor and overall condition so best to discuss this when booking. We were in no. 9 which is a ground floor 1 bedroom apartment and it was great. Only downside of the room was the older stove which took forever to cook anything.

Thanks for your fantastic review. Great that you guys enjoyed yourself and made good use of the BBQ area, it's such a lovely spot out there. Unit 9 is certainly a great apartment, I will look into that stove issue and see what I can do. Thanks Shannon.
