We loved the location, the view and the weather. Being so close to the beach was a treat. The unit was a bit tired, bed was soft, chairs uncomfortable and a bedside light not working.

Very friendly staff, great location, awesome view. The whole apartment was awesome. Easy walk to the cafe and bars, the fish and chip and Four Square Stores around the corner were great. We would stay here again

Nice place to watch sunrise, walk along the beach, enjoy The Lost Spring or catch a boat trip. A little disadvantage is a road right in front, and we were surprised a little bit by the outstanding amount of ice in the fridge/freezer.
