“Unbeatable views!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

What an amazing start to our holiday to be able to watch whales from our balcony. Great facilities and beautiful grounds. Very well maintained pool, BBQ and outdoor eating area. Friendly family atmosphere. Well worth paying the extra for the better apartment that takes full advantage of the views.

Stayed for one night in Unit 1. Great location and amazing views from the property. Lisa and Daniel were very friendly and helpful with check in and a couple of queries. Rani the dog is also a very welcoming host. The apartment is spacious however could do with a little spruce up as the carpet throughout was quite sticky and shower head was dripping. Bed was comfortable and linen and towels clean. Overall a good overnight stay.

We had two very comfortable nights in a unit with a jaw dropping view- they all had fabulous views of the ocean and bay.
Units were spacious, well designed and fully equipped. Surrounds were quiet, and we will return for a longer stay ones day.

Stayed for one night, and will be back to Eagle Heights but will only stay in Unit 7.

Agree with all the other positive reviews. It is an amazing view - if you are traveling the coastal route through the sapphire coast, be sure to allocate more days to your stay in Eden. It is a quieter town and can be used as a base to visit other locales.

The apartment in unit 7 faces directly east. Short of witnessing a sunrise while you're on a plane at 50,000ft in the air, the sunrise as observed on unit 7 was amazing. The stars were out in shear numbers, and the dense arm of the milky way was faintly observable. We were also mesmerised observing a lightening storm out in the ocean at night.

The unit is showing its age with doors losing its handle, holes in the flywire and paintwork, but these are easy fixes and nothing to deter a future visit. Rani the resident dog is super friendly.

We stayed in Unit 6 on the cliff face, but we won’t come back to this place again as there must be better places in the region to stay.

What we liked:
* The bed was really good
* The linen was really good
* Good size flat screen TV

What we didn’t like:
* Towels were a bit hard
* The fridge door wouldn’t close without a good shove (twice in our stay we got caught and had to wipe up the water drops inside the fridge!)
* No real outdoor furniture for this unit, just a timber two-seat and table attached to each other and the table had a fire burn on it, so we couldn’t use it. It needs replacing.
* The 2 BBQ’s were rusty and dirty. One was cleaned on the last day we stayed, but that was too late for us to use it. The outdoor furniture at the BBQ area was not clean and had leaves, etc on the tables and chairs and we couldn’t use these.
* The garden needs some serious attention. So many weeds and it is reaaly overgrown with these weeds. Not a pleasant sight to look at from inside unit 6.
* The bathroom/laundry and toilet have been renovated, but there is about a 1 inch (3cm) difference in the floor height from the new tiles to the carpet. We walked in the back door (which is the bathroom/laundry combined door) and I stumbled on height difference when walking in whilst carrying some bags. And then we both kicked out toes going into the bathroom on more than one occasion so we became very conscious of this difference. In reality for an elderly person this could be a bad trip hazard and I if one falls they would get hurt. This is an unusually high difference and if thought had been given to this edge, it could have been made into a graduated fall instead of a bad trip hazard.
* The worst though was the NOISE from the people staying upstairs in Unit 7. Every movement, at any hour day or night was heard. We didn’t enjoy this!

Summary:
Whilst the bed was good, I don’t think the minuses make up for staying in this place.

The Managers were good and bad. The male was excellent on check in, but the lady when we checked out came down from upstairs and we were an obvious intrusion to what she was doing. No smile, not interest, no thank you …. so after the first sentence and just a stare from this lady, we simply left without giving our total opinion of the place.

I do feel sorry that you felt as though the gardens needed some work. The grounds are huge and we do work on different parts of these grounds every day.

Unit 6 is so close to the cliff face that a 4-seater setting does not fit on the small landing.

There is not much we can do about the bathroom step.

Finally, I am really glad Dan was nice on check in. I try and be equally nice on checkout. As a general rule I like to think that I succeed.

In my defense, Dan and I live and work at Eagle Heights (24/7). Our kids are6 and 4 and mornings can get a little interesting. On the day that you were checking out one of the kids may have been naughty or have been late for the school bus, or could have just fallen out of bed when you were checking out. It may have been for any one of these reasons that I might have seemed distracted and I do apologize.

So often you arrive at a property to find things are not what the website advertisment showed the travel agent promised or the description overstated this is not the case for eagle heigths . The veiw was fantastic (even without any whales) the service friendly the pool and gardens well presented the rooms while having a few minor issues where comfortable and the property made a perfect base for exploring the beautiful south coast and its many attractions

It is almost a sin to only spend 1 night here if you're driving on the coastal route, which was what we did on our Sydney to Melbourne drive. My friends and I were in unit 6, which is just below unit 7 and also overlooking the bay. The view is as advertised in the website, if not even more astounding! Rani, the owners' pet dog, will even come by to your unit to sniff around and give you a warm welcome. (FYI her tail packs quite a swing!)

The kitchen and rooms were very well equiped. Cooked a wonderful spread for dinner and breakfast with everything bought from the Coles supermarket, which was just a 3-minute drive away.

Felt a little disappointed that we were only going to spend the night and had to leave the next day because that meant we would miss out on the chance to go whale-watching. Lo and behold, 2 whales were playing in the bay the following morning and we even managed to see one do a backflip! The ladies staying in unit 7 can vouch for that too.

All in all, simply magnificient. Couldn't ask for more! Well, except if I can extend my holidays and stay longer!

Room Tip: Unit 6 and Unit 7. It's actually a 2-storey house that's been split into 2 separate units, b...
