In a rather ordinary block of units - you drive through a modern gated community-like estate to arrive at a car park located beside a 2 storey non-descript block of apartments. However, upon opening the door to our unit, we were greeted by a bright airy, modern & well designed & thoughtfully funished apt.
This is our 3rd stay (as members of the Accor Vaction Club) & the apartments are well maintained & spotlessly clean. They have studios, 1 bedroom, 2 bedrooms & even 3 bedoom apts. Our most recent stay was in a 1 bedroom which was very well planned in tems of space usage. A decent lounge/dining with an open kitchen concept, the area is nicely flooded with natiral light from the balcony glass doors at 1 end of the room. There is a sofa bed and all the necessary mod cons one expects today. The kitchen is well equipped with pots, pan, utensils, glassware, crockery & cutlery (for 4 persons). A flat screen TV with dvd/cd player and a nice gas heater is in the living area. The bedroom has sliding doors allowing you to open up the space. There is another TV in the bedoom. The unit also has its own washing machine & dryer.
Overall, everything you need for a nice extnded stay to explore the area. Just about the only negative thing I can say is that the beds are too soft. A firmer mattress would have been better. The sofa bed mattress has also seen better days.
The grounds are fairly bare but well kept with a nice heated indoor pool and a very small gym that has new equipment. I definitely would reommend this place & its proximity to Bowral own centre (a leisurely 5 min stroll) makes this a good base to explore the entire Southern highlands.
