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

W e recently stayed here with 11 of our friends. It was a perfect place as we all had jet-skis. Units were well appointed and had everything we needed. Would definitely stay here again and recomend to anyone who wants to be right on the water

I recently stayed during a disability event and i must say the service and quality of both the facilities and staff were exceptional. Thank you so much for having me and my friends. The rooms are beautiful and the area is close to shops and restaurants.

This is our last night at Captains Cove, and as we sit on the deck sipping our wine enjoying the panoramic views and the tranquil stillness of the water we can't help but reflect on the last few days. We stayed in a three bedroom unit which was spotless and with modern amenities. The staff have been very helpful and... More

My wife and I stayed at Captains Cove for a week with our 6 month old son and couldn't fault it. Apartments are extremely clean and spacious and completely self contained. Apartment had an upstairs balcony and a fantastic downstairs deck both overlooking the water. Perfect for a few wines whilst watching boats come and go as well as the... More

This is one of the best places I have stayed in a long time. Very clean, very comfortable, felt like a home away from home. The staff were amazing and nothing was any trouble to them. They have bikes, kayaks for hire, tenis also and you could not be any closer to the water if you tried. Hired a boat... More

We just stayed for 2 nights with our 2 year old. The accommodation is so lovely, it is really good value for money (huge apartments that would very easily fit a large family or 3 couples). It was really quiet & well equipped with everything you could need in the kitchen, laundry etc. And the view from both upstairs &... More

We only live 75 min away, but Captains Cove is a great place to stay. We have stayed as a couple, with the boat moored at our own jetty, and are about to commence a four day holiday with our two 4y/o grand children. Great facilities, friendly staff and affordable price structure. Highly recommended.
