Great location on the foreshore, our children loved the playground. Old but clean unit, cost of $165 seemed a bit expensive for the condition of unit but it did cater for our needs

We just needed a bed for the night. Basic, comfortable and clean. We stayed in thr 1 bedroom budget accommodation. We had water views. The Jayco buildings are old (maybe built in 1970’s) but do the job and are adequate for an overnight stay. If I was on holidays I would pay and get the waterfront superior 2 bedroom. For $96 the unit was good value for money. The reception staff were very friendly and checking in after an online booking was really quick and easy.

The Cabin was in very good condition, clean and had all basic necessities to accommodate for a long stay, had very good heating and cooling. GREAT STRONG SHOWER. Cabin was right in front of beach and near park. Great for family get away. Disappointing side the Maintenance man had let himself into cabin without notifying us that he will be coming, my husband was sleeping at the time and was startled by him. He thought no-one was in. Was intending to enter cabin without us knowing which I feel is inappropriate.
