We stayed here for 2 nights, could have stayed longer. The views are lovely, the living room is massive, the facilities are perfect. Very comfortable for a family of 5 to stay there for a week. The main part of town is quiet at night so not many eating choices. Right across the road from the apartments is a kids... More

We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom spa apartment on our way to surfers. This apartment was HUGE. I have been in smaller houses. Everything was exceptionally clean and I especially liked the separation of the kids room to ours. We were on the first floor with an expansive view with massive balcony over the Richmond River. The staff... More

My wife and I stayed here for three nights in a one bedroom apartment with river glimpses from the large and very private balcony. After we checked in we found a couple of minor things that needed seeing to and they were fixed immediately. Well done. Our apartment was spacious, clean and a pleasure to stay in. I could live...
