Just love this place! Di and Doug are wonderful hosts. Afternoons lounging by the pool, soaking up the sun surrounded by the beautifully kept gardens. Our room was great with everything you need. Town and Main Beach are only a 10 min walk.

We loved our time at Crest Apartments. The room was comfortable and large enough for our family. The grounds were well looked after and the courtyard was a highlight, as it provided privacy and a space to eat all of our meals. We will will be coming back :)
