We were pleasantly surprised by these apartments. They are very well laid out and the living area is big! All facilities were available for cooking and everything was clean and well maintained, although a little dated. The bed was comfortable and we had a great balcony which we used in the evenings as it was cool and inviting to sit... More

We booked a 3 bedroom apartment, and it was huge. The kitchen had everything you could need, air conditioning throughout, foxtel and all conveniences. Everything was clean and tidy. The kids loved the pool. The managers were friendly and helpful, and the location was very convenient.

So impressed with this admittedly dated looking (on the outside) apartment ... big surprise to find it was immaculately clean and really well-equipped. Kinda retro inside, with comfy bed, big bathroom with washer and dryer and good air-conditioning and lovely little outside balcony with table/chairs. Reception staff were so friendly, helpful and obliging. Right near the shops and restaurants yet... More

The managers were friendly and helpful. I had a one bedroom apartment a few steps away from the pool. The apartment was fully self contained. The bathroom had a shower toilet and laundry all in one. It really is a fantastic location with shops and restaurants across the road and public transport at your door. I have stayed in a... More

Spacious comfortable apartment with good amenities. Nice balcony. A second key would have been useful however. The apartment had Foxtel TV if you like sports .We watched some US Open tennis which was excellent.
