We arrived from Newcastle for an 8 night stay, to attend a wedding held on the beach itself. We are glad we opted for these apartments, as from our arrival to our check out we had no complaints whatsoever. Other relatives stayed elsewhere on Trinity Beachfront, and they paid a lot more but were not as happy - and were... More

Thank you for your Review. Sorry about the loud AC noise from next door. We did have a bedroom AC that a Guest advised us about being loud which was immediately repaired. Should that ever happen again, anywhere, always let management know as you can either be moved or we can fix the problem. We are so pleased it didn't... More

We loved our apartment. It was like being at home with all the amenities. Washing machine, dryer, iron, microwave etc. Couldn't fault it at all. We stayed there for 4 very happy weeks. I would recommend if staying any longer than a week to hire a car as there is so much to see and do
