Our unit was very roomy with a kitchenette, little dining area and a lounge. The swimming pool looks lovely though I didn’t have a chance to jump in. Nice and close to HarbourTown if you like your shops.

Many reviewed the property as a family friendly accommodation. However the extra cot beds put in the room for an extra $60 a night for two small children was overyl expensive. Under the beds were disgusting things I'd rather not mention and although the rooms were large the kitchen only had three chairs and was very outdated. The location is good and that is about all it had going for it.
