Currently enjoying a few weeks in unit 15. Very clean unit, very spacious, extra large bedrooms and bathrooms. Foxtel was a bonus. Over-sized car park space was a welcome surprise. On site managers were very helpful and welcoming. Great to find a unit that sleeps four, that has a lounge where everyone can sit comfortably with room to spread out.... More

We stayed in apartment 23 for 6 nights and found it to be very comfortable and clean. The staff were very helpful and it's position right on the beach was fantastic. We loved the Lorikeets visiting every morning too.

Stayed in unit 15, it was infested with flies upon arrival, as a family we killed 33 flies. It was dirty & dated. The floor and carpets felt grimy, the curtains were filthy and there was blood splatter on the mirror from a previous pimp squeeze. 👎
