Great price for a spacious two bedroom, ocean views apartment in a fantastic location. Main con is aging apartments (won't bother many), and not a fantastic cleaning job, at least in our apartment (some hair everywhere). Recommended for budget conscious families who still want space, location and a beachfront view.

Great place to stay. Located over the shopping centre which had a Woolworths and Aldi for supplies and a cinema. Lots of great restaurants within a 5 minute walk - varying from posh to take away burgers. Beach is across the road. Lauren on reception went the extra mile for us when Jetstar cancelled our flight. I would definitely stay... More

Great location and so handy to everything with amazing views. However, the apartment smelled badly of stale cooking/oil odours. When I advised of this it was dealt with but minimally. Pouring cleaning agent down the sink and plug holes just didn't make one bit of difference. Our apartment needed a serious upgrade and was very outdated.

There was still sand left in both showers, the floors hadn't been swept (we ended up sweeping them ourselves), I found old chips under the furniture, the couches were stained and full... More
