It was down the Urangan end of Hervey Bay and walking distance to The Boat Club, Cafe Balena, and other little shops. Close to the beach also. Nice and quiet.

Thank you so much for such a wonderful family stay. We were so happy with our room and the view. We were able to walk to man diffrent eat out spots. Cathy was so welcoming with all our questions.

Great location and views. Much quieter end of Hervey Bay. Easy walking distance to restaurants, harbour & short commute to pier, markets etc. Was surprised you have to pay to use the BBQ's and let's be honest, who carries coins around these days? Sunday arvo, reception closed, food ready to go & no coins. Thank you to a resident that came to our rescue. The apartment was roomy and partially renovated, however I'm confused as to why they stopped short at replacing the filthy 90's looking rubber backed curtains! Please replace these! They totally stole my focus and I had to pull the kids beds away from them. The view of dolphins made up for this oversight. Resort is looking a bit dated and tired and needs a facelift but was still value for money.

Love the position right on the water front. Pool area was great. Would have been good to have wi-fi available.

Beautiful views but very old and run down buildings. Definitely didn’t reflect the pictures. Overall cleanliness was pretty poor also. No extra towels for pool use unless you paid for them. Pretty pricey for what you receive.

Great location. Beautiful view of the ocean. Good sized rooms and living area. The apartment and furniture are tired and old, which is fine but I feel the price for the room is too high.
