Great location looking over the Point beyond the surf club. We had a garden room and the garden was lovely, it meant we could step straight off our balcony and walk out to the Point. We could see whales from our balcony (remember your binoculars). Apartment (2 bedroom) was very nice with king size beds in both rooms. The two... More

WOW...What a view. Unit 15 on the 2nd floor had the most amazing views of the Ocean. Cool breeze blowing through the unit at all times. The units are a little old fashion and are in need of a makeover however they provide all that you need for a lovely weekend. We were in the 3 bedroom apartment and found... More

My family and I stay here every year, renting out 3 to 4 apartments for a week in each January. This will be our last year staying here. We used to enjoy staying here but the last couple of years, and this year in particular we notice the place is no longer clean or properly maintained. I have attached photos... More

Great views, close to the beach but in need of a refresh, I.e, lick of paint inside. Great for families due to the location, near beach &, shops. Complex has a pool & BBQ area which is well maintained. I would stay there again.

OK so Point Lookout in June should be whales, weather and walks. Not this time. It was wild weather, wind and waves. But the unit was luxurious and comfortable and we took the opportunity to just relax. This was our second visit and it won't be our last. Great managers Jo and Robin added to the enjoyment.

We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment and the best thing about it was the amazing view! We were facing right out towards the ocean and it was just beautiful. The main bedroom also had this amazing view! Its 3 star I think so don't expect it to be posh but its very nicely done out and very clean. Its... More
