We stayed here over the Christmas holidays in ground floor apartment No 4, we checked into the apartment in the afternoon and it was ready immediately with a nice welcome by the owners. On first impressions it looks quite sparse but it was very clean and well equipt its what you make of it so over the Christmas holidays we had everything we needed and made it like HOME FROM HOME (no oven but some do have them so mention if you want one) open plan lounge dining area large tv dvd patio doors to entrance with outdoor seating area & parking bay, kitchen has all we needed full size fridge/freezer which was great for all our beers & spirits, kitchen has a door leading to a outdoor lawned garden with clothes line, two double bedrooms one with double bed other with 2 singles, nice clean shower room with proper hairdryer air con to living area, ceiling fans to bedrooms. The highlight of our stay was Christmas Eve we had the family round and used the outdoor bbq area next to the pool there was quite a group of us so there was plenty room for dining with 2 tables the children & adults were able to swim in the lovely pool (heated) which also has sun loungers & tables & chairs, we had a lovely time which went into the evening the owners came out to join us and Brian brought out a stereo for our cds so we partied and played our Christmas carols before retiring to the apartment to wrap our prezzies for the day ahead. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners they were friendly helpful and know their stuff when it comes to customer service, we had a great time thank you both and best wishes on your Europe trip. Only negative is its a little far out of town, you would need to drive, the couple we were with have stayed in Hervey Bay before and their local is the Torquay so one of us had to drive to the Esplanade, however having said that the beach is as the bottom of the street and if you want a more peaceful location then its ideal. We would definitely return all the best for 2013.
