We just stayed at Oceanview Apartments for 7 nights and loved it. Rooms are dated but clean and have everything you will need. Owners are friendly and made use feel very welcome. The additional use of stand up paddle boards, kayaks and snorkel gear being included in our stay is a plus. We could also hire bikes from here for... More

Well it was when we were there for seven days in February. Great location a few minutes walk from the wharf and beaches. Cut through the paddock and you're at the Anchorage Café for some great meals or snack attack. The unit were spotless, spacious with a well equipped kitchen to prepare meals at the apartment or use the on... More

We recently stayed at Oceanview in a studio apartment for 8 nights. The apartments are an easy walk to Lagoon beach and shops, unlike some of the other accommodation options which are up a steep hill and some distance from Lagoon beach. The apartments are very clean and there is great landscaping which provides good privacy. Great BBQs and microwave... More

2 yrs ago we stayed at Ocean View that friends recommended, this time we had a few hassles with delayed baggage and cancelled flights, Kevin and daughter Kelly couldn't do enough for us, they were run off their feet but had time to chase our issues up always with a smile. We weren't disappointed on our 2nd visit, very clean,... More

Picked us up from airport, dropped us off back there, transport to dinner and places to start bushwalks, help with luggage etc. Nothing we asked was a hassle. They ordered us a... More

Just spent 5 nights at oceanview and couldn't fault it. Hosts, Kevin and Sue couldn't be more helpful and accommodating. Beautiful clean apartment. Fell in love with Diesel - pity I couldn't bring him home with me but he far outweighed the 14 kg luggage allowance!

We agree with earlier reviewer - Clean , comfy and convenient, but then would add "Outstanding and Remarkable" hospitality, help, happiness and friendly attitude. We often here the platitude "Can't do enough for you." but Kevin Wilson and and his wife conceived it - and they are still trying to improve on yesterday. A family business for generations (as are...

We stayed at Oceanview for 5 nights and were very happy with the experience. The location is great, being a short walk to the pier, close to the 'CBD' and within an easy walk of Ned's Beach. Oceanview was clean and comfortable, with the units having all we needed for a short stay. The kitchen had plenty of utensils and... More

Kevin & Chad were both great with there transport to several evening meals, and to & from the golf course. Ocean View is in a good position, with pleasant walks into " Town " ,... More

Spent 6 nights at ocean view with my husband and two grandsons one 15 and the other 11. We stayed in the family unit which was spacious and clean. The boys loved the games room which kept them occupied at night. Kevin and the rest of the staff were very friendly and helpful. My husband and grandsons went deep sea... More
