We had a great stay with our daughter and 2 sml grandaughters. (3&1)There was plenty of room for us all. The views are fantastic from the 20th floor, and the pools are great too. Handy to Tedder Ave for coffee and restaurants and some shops.(chemist etc) Walking distance to beach, surf club, yacht club and a longer walk to Sea... More

We had a wonderful stay in a 3 bedroom unit on the 21st floor, view was unbeatable, as a family of 5 it was great to spread out. Most amenities were available & manager was friendly & happy to give us directions to nearest shopping, find us a hair dryer etc. Rooms could have been cleaner as we noticed lots... More

We had a slow start, but the staff and the unit were very clean and had beautiful views. The condominium is very centrally located, close to shops, restaurants, public transport and beautifully quiet, with wide surround balconies.

A large group of my friends and I (around 10 of us) booked two apartments in the December summer break. We were VERY pleasantly surprised when we walked through the apartment doors for the first time! They were extremely clean and very homely and reasonably fancy! The lounge was very very spacious and bathrooms were amazing! Because we went with... More

You can just tell by the fittings that when this building was built it was pure quality for that time. Marble bathrooms, slick handless cupboard doors and big. Our unit was on the 21st floor and a 2 bedroom executive room deal. The staff on the desk are very friendly and we couldn't fault them. The community areas are spotless... More

Stayed over Easter. Room was spacious but old and dated. Very close the shops etc at Tedder Ave. Perfect location. Spent 30 min looking everywhere in the grounds for a BBQ area one night but couldn't find one. Asked an older resident where it was and got laughed at and told there wasn't one! I felt embarrassed and humiliated for... More

It looks nice on the internet, but not what it seems. It is very old style. The main bedroom bed had a egg shell underlay on top of the mattress. The balcony furniture had seen it's day. The kids beds look like the bedcovers had never been washed. No aircon in the bedrooms. Disappointing for a first family holiday away.... More

This guest made no comment during her stay. All our executive apartments have air conditioning. Some ducted and some are a split system. The apartment was on the 20th floor and quite spectacular. Definitely executive standard. Lovely sea breezes at night and great views. Not a typical comment - what a shame. More

We travelled from Wauchope to Orange and then orange to Main Beach. The whole process was fabulous. They offered us to book in a day earlier and said if we didn't arrive in time (due to the distance being travelled) they would charge us for the extra night. We didn't arrive when expected and the keys were made available after... More
