“Fantastic apartments, great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2006

The location is fantastic, right opposite Town Beach which is a patrolled beach. Great for kids to swim and boogie board. There are also parks nearby and the town centre is less than 1km away. The apartment we stayed in was fairly new, fully self contained with everything. An indoor swimming pool was great for the kids when the weather was wet.
