My family and I stayed in apartment 306 for 13 nights. The apartment has recently been renovated and has been done to a very high standard. Very clean with a fresh feel which is very important to me when choosing a place to stay. All the kitchen utensils you need for cooking at home are provided which we did quite... More

We were cursed with the key to room 318. A two bedroom time casual which reminded me of TV shows like cop shop & prisoner. Our dark outlook over the pool and water glimpses of the sea was disappointing to say the least. A Flaming deal full of thick smoke, our booking was a huge mistake. The beds are a... More

The apartment 310 was recommended to us by friends. They informed us that each apartment is individually owned and at different standards. We were very happy with 310 and Tom from Seascapeholidays.com.au was most helpful with the meet and greet and our daily excursions. 310 is a large ground floor apartment which leads out to the pool area and just...

My husband & I stayed in apartment 310 over the June long weekend. The apartment itself is lovely and quite generous in size, however the lounge room TV was broken upon arrival, so it was removed & the small bedroom TV was put into its place. No replacement TV was available for the main bedroom & we were basically told... More

Paying top dollar, but heated pool waiting on parts so it's cold; no screens on windows so flies & mosquitos invade; told by reception to buy our own bug spray! Dirty stains on rug & furniture; tv cabinet off floor on 4 bricks. If this is the way to trade out of receivership this property is in more trouble.

My husband and I stayed at apartment 306 the beaches for 5 nights and loved every minute. The apartment was very clean, spacious and in an ideal location just on the beach. Even though we were on the ground floor, the lush foliage around the pool gave us privacy. At night it was very quiet and peaceful. The kitchen is... More

We have just returned to Melbourne from a week in beautiful Port Douglas and stayed in apartment 306. This ground floor, 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom apartment is stunning and very spacious. It was ideal for our family of 4. We were told about it through friends that stayed there in March and their recommendation was to stay in 306... More

Beaches is perfectly positioned between the beach and the Main Street. The two bedroom apartment we have is spacious and has everything you could need including a fully equipped kitchen and a laundry. The communal areas are well maintained and there is plenty of parking. We would happily stay here again.
