Quiet, well-maintained with all amenities we could wish for. Staff friendly & helpful but unobtrusive. Only minutes away for a sunrise or sunset beachwalk yet a short drive to Elizabeth for safe swimming in sparkling clear water. Looking forward to making time for another 3 or 4-day stay asap.

We always love staying here and will come back again for sure. The only thing I ask please can the restaurant update the dinner menu, we have young teenage kids and the menu does not cater for dinner for them, burgers, nachos and items like that will get you more business,young teenage kids do not want $35 dollar steaks and...

What a great location for our wedding 11/03/2017. These people are second to none, from the moment we first contacted them, till the end of our perfect stay. Moby's staff were also perfect and nothing was any trouble to them. The food was exquisite, so our praise to the chef and all the catering staff. What an easy place to...

We've just returned from a three night stay at Moby's. Our first visit. We were very impressed with the accommodation and the grounds are very tropical. The pool/spa area is lovely and there is a bar and a restaurant which serves very good food. The weather was not great but we managed a few beach swims. Elizabeth beach - a...

Thanks Brian for your kind words, so glad you enjoyed your time with us, hopefully next time the weather will be better for you. We are very luck to have such a great restaurant attached to the resort the chef and his team do such an amazing job. Hope to be able to welcome you back again soon.

We stayed in a 2bed apartment with our toddler. Spacious and clean. Kitchen doesn't have an oven, but everything else is perfect for a beachside holiday. The bedrooms were good sized with built in wardrobes. Large shower and good bathroom area. The resort has a pool, spa and gym. Very peaceful and quiet. Restaurant / cafe is average, but with...

The location is just lovely. Not too far from sydney, not too busy, and a beautiful beach across the road. Also only 20min from Forster if you need extra amenities. A couple of nice cafes a 5min walk away and one onsite too. My first impression was we wouldnt get any privacy because the houses are close together. This was...

Thanks sare_sperky for your feed back, and yes we are in the process of upgrading our Beach Houses and it is a slow process. I will definitely be looking into which one you stayed in and fast tacking it upgrades. I am glad you enjoyed your holiday though and look forward to seeing you again.

Very good value at this end of the market (we paid £105, equivalent to about $170, for a one bedroom house in February). Very well equipped, comfortable and clean. The resort was very popular amongst families with small children but we were at the far end of the resort which was peaceful. You need to pick your time if you...

Mobys on Red Gum, as part of Moby's Beachside Retreat. The room has had a makeover, and the menu simple with four main choices. Haphazard service and poor quality produce, could be the experience even with the limited choices. No excuse for plating yellowing damaged leaves of rocket, in an entree and side. A main course was faultless in comparison,...

“No 79 and 80 are very private and quite close to the reception/pool/restaurant/tennis court area. Noise could be a factor.”
