Lovely clean and comfortable apartment. Excellent facilities. Beach towels, beach toys for kids, beach chairs for adults. DVDs and books and Free car which made the trip awesome fun!!

Great place to stay. Large BBQ area beside the pool. We took advantage of the free loan car and travelled to all the other bays for about 4 hours. You can borrow beach towels and even straw sun hats. Very thoughtful. Our large balcony overlooking the BBQ and pool area even give us a limited sea view even though it...

We had an awesome stay at Sails on Horseshoe. Kathy and Phil were fantastic hosts and couldn't do enough to help out when required. We would definitely recommend a stay in these beautifully self contained clean and tidy appartments. We will definitely be back again one day. Thanks again for a wonderful stay that sadly wasn't at all long enough...

The unit complex is older style, low key and well maintained. Would...

My family and I stayed here at apartment 4 (best view!). Amazing view of sunsets and beach within a stone's throw. Lovely staff, you can borrow the jeep, awesome snorkelling. Apartments are 90s style but beds are comfy and they have everything you need. Restaurants are 100m down the road and check out the superb coffee next door.

We had a wonderful week at sails on horseshoe. Every effort was made to ensure that our family was comfortable. Everyone was super helpful and very generous (had access to scooters, games, beach toys) and were always very friendly and accessible. The location was amazing and the rooms were very clean and comfortable.

I stayed here with friends and the room was fabulous. Just across from the water, close to all facilities and the managers were very helpful. All the extra things made a big difference with access to scooters a real plus. The apartment was big and all great cooking equipment.
