Nice spacious and high spec apartments located a short walk from the town centre. Large living/ dining area perfect for a group holiday. Pool area was nice, although water was freezing! Front desk very helpful with booking tours and general advice.

We stayed at Water's Edge after choosing it based on it being a premium apartment option in a great location and with a good pool. The reception staff are great and very helpful and the apartment was large and central. It is however let down by the cleanliness. It's not appallingly dirty but there are many oversights, leaving the apartment... More

The apartment had everything one could ask for . Away from the noisy promenade and yet just a few minutes walk will take you there . View was excellent and the shops are all walking distance . Very good and helpful staff.

Perfect location. Perfect staff on reception and a stunning apartment with unsurpassed views of the ocean. The pools where both clean and the house rules make the whole place a pleasant environment to be in. A highlight of my trip to Australia. Could not recommend it more.

Pros: Reception was friendly and check in went smoothly. We were able to leave our luggage in the office until our apartment was ready. The location is pretty good, only... More

Kids just loved it, well so did us adults !!. It was so nice to be able to sit on the balcony and watch... More
