The grounds are really well kept. We liked that you offer private access to Blacks Beach. We also liked that the unit had ceiling fans and security screens on all windows, allowing us to sleep with fresh air.

Thanks so much for a top-notch review! We love the tropical gardens here and the fact that it's right on the beach. The sea breeze is always lovely and we're glad you enjoyed catching that during the evenings. Hope to see you again in the future.

Great resort style accom for a beach getaway

We were so close to the beach at The Shores Apartments that we could hear the ocean at night. The accommodation was clean, tidy and had nice decor; it was perfect for our family of 4.

We are very sorry the accommodation didn???t meet your expectations. The Shores was built in 1989, so it is old but we strive to keep it well maintained. The carports are tight, but we have other parking spaces available if they are an issue. The ashtray left outside on the patio, which we learnt about on departure was an oversight by our cleaners. My apologies again. We also believe our units are good value for two bedroom fully self contained apartments on the beach. Thanks for your comments.
