The apartments are in a great location for walks along the beach, whale watching and eating out. The facilities are good although the pool was freezing cold. The views from the balconies were beautiful, one ocean view and one marina view. I booked the apartments a few months ago and asked for 2 together but ended up with 2 a... More

Lovely quiet location with an amazing view of the beach. No roads, no traffic between me and the beach. A great spot to walk to the marina for whale watching or dinner. We left the car in the lock up garage for several days. I enjoyed the sound of gentle waves lapping at the beach and having breakfast on the... More

Helpful staff on check in, had a one bedroom unit which had a great sea view and was clean and a comfortable bed.The kitchen was well equipped .The unit needed some cleaning equipment and chemicals so it could be kept clean because it wasn't serviced. The location was great for most things like whale watch tours, trips to Fraser Island,... More

The view was beautiful but everything was dirty! Floor dirty and shoes recommended and shower/ spa was moldy and room smelt Bed cover was dirty and bed hard. Aircon didn't work very well and could hardly cool the lounge let alone any luck being cool in the bedroom. The only thing we used in the kitchen was the glasses which... More

Stayed four nights. Unit was clean and well appointed. Bed was a little too firm for my liking, but no complaints otherwise. Great place to chill out, enjoy superb views with no traffic (or other) noise. Chose a ground floor unit because of difficulty with stairs, but the view was not limited at all.

This would have to be the dirtiest Apartment that we have ever opened the door to. The floors were so dirty that the first night we walked on them with no... More

Stayed here for 2 nights as had booked excursion to Fraser Island. Felt like had stepped back in time! Apartment very dated and really bad damp smell greeted you every time you entered. Games room badly in need of updating. Shops never opened nearby despite advertising to the contrary. Below par.

Stayed at the resort overnight with a group of family and friends for a bridal shower. Unit was visibly dirty on arrival with cigarette butt on the front verandah in clear view of the dining area so easy to have been noted and attended to by cleaners. Light above the dining table did not work, faint and flickered constantly. When... More

This a a great place to stay with a family. Reception staff are great. Average rooms. Not very clean though. The pool/grassy area down the "jetty end" of the complex has some pompus retirees living right outside that watch you like a hawk. They don't seem to like children much. Ask to be down the "Fraser" end. The games room/playground... More
