Never ever again!

Stayed in a two bedroom unit and hated it. Dirty,dirty,dirty! Staff helped to clean the floor reluctantly with a 'u r trouble' attitude and then refused to make the dirty table clean. Asked us to wipe the table and bench top clean by ourselves. And told us to book somewhere fancy next time. I truly tried to leave the place and book from airbnb. Only it was the peak season and the alternatives on airbnb was more than 100km away. If I had any choice,I would never ever have booked it or stayed for the night. Won't recommend it to everyone who is older than 20 years old.

Feels like home

Felt like we stayed at home. Only thing we didnt like was old utensils and uncleaned kettle. Time to change the kitchen stuff. Other than that all good.

Nice close to the beach and shops

Well located in Apollo bay. Opposite supermarket, also next to main shopping strip on great ocean rd. Accommodation was average, yet sufficient for what we needed. There is a free breakfast available each morning.

Convenient affordable family accommodation

Walking distance to beach and shops. Comfortable apartment. Good heating. Comfy beds. Clean and serviceable apartment. Nothing flash, but good if you intend to be out and about rather than lounging around at home.
