My partner and I had a lovely time staying at Captain's Cove, we swam in the indoor pool, played tennis and enjoyed sitting out on the deck having a drink and soaking in the relaxing atmosphere. Only a short stroll to the shops and cafe's. Very clean and tidy townhouses with great showers, comfortable bedding and large lounges big enough... More

We have stayed here many times and it is still one of our favourite holiday destinations. I have written about Captains Cove in glowing terms before and everything I have said previously still pertains. The apartments are maintained in first class condition and contain everything to make a self catering facility extremely user friendly and comfortable. The position beside the... More

Hi Michael, thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. It certainly does help us get the word out there about our little resort tucked away in Paynesville. The wildlife is a highlight for our guests. The swans have had a challenging season with their eggs being washed away & the rebuilding process. Thank you for... More

Thank you Captain's Cove - what a secret you and the Paynesville area are. We travel regularly, but your sunny & spacious North facing waterfronts apartments with the bonus of a heated pool (was great for our swims), tennis court and our very own jetty out the front - made the experience very special. We will certainly be telling all... More

Couldn't fault the place. Allowed us one night stay as it was winter and quiet and had big 3 BR townhouse for a couple. Views are as you'd expect for a mariner living all other features standard. Check in check out perfect and staff friendly. Free wifi and parking close to everything(not that Paynesville is that big)

Stayed one night as part of a business trip. Outstanding new apartment. everything provided including full size fridge, nespresso type coffee machine with pods, good selection of soap, shampoo etc. Absolute waterfront location with boat berth.

Lovely spot with water view, great for kids and feeding ducks! A quiet area, good parking and relaxing atmosphere. The apartment was spotlessly clean, well furnished and well finished with all modern appliances, including a pod coffee maker.

Arrived and spent a magical 2 days at this stunning location, touring around Paynesville and such typical country landscapes was time well spent. Situated on a lake water to the front door, just a gorgeous place.

Just spent 2 nights here after picking up a deal of the internet. Great value and very clean accommodation for the money, all double storey apartments appear to be 3 bedrooms and you are charged for how many you use. We stayed in 21 and the configuration was Queen bed upstairs with a balcony overlooking the water, another bedroom upstairs... More
