This is a self-serviced apartment. Well equipped, clean only with some ants on the kitchen counter. Only you may need to bring your own supply of toiletries and washing detergent if staying more than 1 night. It comes with just 1 aircon in the living area enough to bearly cool the bedrooms with doors opened. Heated swimming pool and direct...

We stayed for 5 nites (9 Nov to 13 Nov) in a one bedroom apartment. The location is fantastic; beach front, safe, near most amenities and away from the night noise. However, no matter how the property attributes stand positively, the whole experience would not be perfect if not for the managers. During our stay, Chris and Judy were always...

Having stayed in various properties in and around Surfers I can say without reservation that No 1 lived up to its actual name!. The apartment, building and grounds were immaculate and beyond my expectation. From the moment I arrived (early as it happened) I was made to feel welcome. My room was ready and was huge, fully equipped, light and...

We recently stayed in a 2 bedroom superior apartment on the 13th floor and it was absolutely beautiful. The kitchen was stocked with everything you could possibly need, and all the furniture was beautifully picked, from the matching dining and coffee tables, to the amazingly comfortable couch. I loved the cabinet lighting in the kitchen! It was the little things...

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment at One The Esplanade for only 3 nights and wished we had more time to stay longer. The location is amazing, so much is within an easy walk. Private access to the beach, easy walk to Caville avenue, restaurants, shopping and, most importantly for my two children, lots of pokestops/gyms/pokemon! As the first...
