We travelled to the Beach House in early September 2012, we being 2 parents, and a 6, 3 and 1 year old. We had modest expectations because this trip was a cheap week away from Melbourne. We had booked on price and convenience to the airport, beach and at least a little dining. But our expectations were completely surpassed...
It started at check in when we remembered we needed a cot for the 1 year old. No problem, no attitude. Then we saw the flyer for the kids club. Perhaps a slight over-promise but the 6 and 3 year old loved it and went 3 days running, coming back with painted plaster moulds, masks and even some cake they'd baked. 2 hours of peace for us and fun for them. Price? $0. The BBQs clean and well maintained. The pool was lovely and warm and the kids pool safe and fun for them. Hire of boogie boards for the beach was also free. Every time we had a question it was met with pleasant and positive response.
I am trying to think of a downside and I can't really. The decor is pretty dated, as it the building itself, but for a family holiday where the weather and the beach are the main attractions, does it really matter? We will absolutely book and stay here again.
I have seen a few complaints on TA about the rooms and getting sun. The tip from me, at least for August/September if you want some sun the southern rooms - 08, 07, 06 and 05 of each floor provide beautiful morning sun until about 10am, rooms 01- 04 get more later in the day. But really if it's sun you want the beach is across the street, the pool area is on level 1. Seriously, get out there and enjoy it rather than moaning about what your balcony did or didn't get!
