Within cherry-pip spitting to the beach this great two storey shack is in the best position ever in Forster. Unit 6 is the pick - second floor and a gob smacking view of the beach. Clean and homey large two-bedroom place with no frills but exceptional value.

My friends and I stayed here for four days and found that the room we were in (second floor, middle unit) was suitable for the five of us. I give this place a rating of 4 because the price was great, much cheaper than the nicer looking ones close by, it was spacious enough for the five of us, had... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in apartment 6. The apartment is well equipped (especially the kitchen) has a queen bed and two singles. The carpet is slightly shabby, but the view is amazing. It is right across the street from the pool and the main beach. Apartment 6 has the best outlook, and definitely the pick of the block.... More

Noisy non private accommodation. Not only paper thin walls but the least peaceful accommodation Ive stayed in for years. Price meets the standard. This is low budget accommodation nothing fancy. Relatively clean and tidy but a time warp decor experience. The best is the very comfortable need mattresses. Not for romantic getaways. Easy access to main beach and walking distance... More

We came up for just one night and would have loved to stay longer! We were here several years ago and weren't sure what to expect! But it was better than we remembered! We stayed in Unit 6- upstairs in front overlooking the Forster Main Beach. The facilities in the room seem to be revamped from previous reviews - it... More

Out your door, over the street, and you're at the beach! The building might be dated but it is clean and well kept. For self-catered accommodation it is perfect. It is certainly not five star, but the location outweighs that. Only a 5 min walk in to town as well. I would definitely recommend this place to friends

This is a standard old style beach holiday self caterer. Booked on short notice in high season & was reasonably priced. The manager was very helpful on booking as I had originally enquired about some where else & when he heard I wanted to be within walking distance of a family apt. he suggested this. Great spot for beach, clean,... More

An old building housing about six units and not far from demolition given the quality of surrounding accommodation. The units are comfortable and clean, they have air conditioning but it doesn't work very well. The owners obviously recognize this because our unit had an additional portable air con. Bathroom, kitchen, and in general all the unit has a fifties decor.... More
