What a find! These spotlessly-clean, well-located chalets are an absolute delight. We didn't move the car for our entire stay, as they are within walking distance of restaurants, bars, shops, the water front, canal cruises and a lovely little beach.
The service as we checked in was amazingly friendly, with the owners welcoming us and pointing us in the direction of local facilities. They really have thought of everything to make your stay that extra bit nicer, from including a welcome pack of tea, coffee and milk, to a laundry basket in the chalet and a generous amount of toiletries in the bathroom.
The facilities in the chalets are excellent, with large fridge, microwave and hot plate. The bathroom is a decent size, and the air conditioning and fans were very welcome in the heat. There is a little verandah which is the perfect size to sit and watch the world go by. The spa was fantastic, a real find in accommodation in this price bracket.
There are barbeque facilities and a sink (with Department of FIsheries size guide included!) to clean your ocean haul, which would be great if you were a fisher, but did remind me rather sadly that I have never been able to catch a fish in my life. The gardens are beautifully maintained. All traffic is one-way through the park and speed-limited, so it feels very relaxed and safe. The compendium of information makes it quite clear that the park is a family-oriented destination, and although we stayed as a couple and found it very suitable for our needs, I can see that families would be very well catered for. There is a laundry which is open during reception opening hours, which would be good for longer stays.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in this lovely property.
