Thanks so much for the great review, we try our hardest to keep the apartments nice and clean. Our location is great, we are close to the shops, restaurants and the Marina where the boat tours leave from. Thanks again, Linda

We stayed in a Penthouse apartment with180 degree views of the water. Was beautifully appointed and fitted with everything you could need to cook up a storm. Balcony had a large BBQ which was ideal for dinner one night. Great time with professional hosts and wonderful facilities only a short drive or solid walk to the main town centre.

Very satisfied with the resort in general. Donna in reception was both friendly and very efficient. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble for her. In the apartment, all was as to be expected for four stars'

Size of the apartments were amazing! So spacious, some of the fixtures getting a bit dated and hard to operate - eg. blinds. The car parking is a real issue, having a big car the parks were tiny and when another big car was parked next to us we couldn’t both open our car doors, we ended up parking outside half the time which was less convenient.

Thanks for your review, yes our apartments are spacious, they are 14 years old now and showing abit of wear and tear. The car parking is only an issue for people with the new giant cars and unfortunately we are unable to alter the parking spots I'm sorry, but at least we had on site visitor car parking.

Loved everything about our stay here. Apartment was lovely, with stunning views of the marina, ocean and Fraser Island. Staff knowledgeable and helpful. Would stay there again.
