Yep we found a great spot to park which we will use again in the future. Our catch cry is Constant Maintenance....considered development inside creative management so hopefully it... More

Bob made the booking process easy. We had a weeks stay just before Christmas 2015 and have already rebooked. We stay in a 3 bedroom apartment with spectacular views of the skillion and ocean. The outdoor pool and spa provided hours of relaxation and fun conversations. We're addicted!

What a FABULOUS family holiday, 5 nights in a 4 bedroom Ocean View Apartment, everything you needed was in the apartment, very clean, nothing was a problem if you needed it. Pool is great for the kids & everything is within walking distance from the beach to restaurants. Not our first stay this would be number 4, HIGHLY recommended!
