I stayed in 'The Pass' for a week + had a great time. Firstly, the location - you cant get any more central or middle of the action than this place. Secondly, the views are fantastic - you can watch the waves from your balcony or bedrooms. The apartment itself is great - beach look and feel - the large balcony with bench table/stools is awesome - we spent most of the time out there taking in the aforementioned views + people watching - a very cool Quiksilver surfboard hangs over the lounge - all living/bdm rooms are spacious - lounge/beds are really comfortable - the kitchen is small but has most things that you need (Note, no oven though). Due to the perfect location, directly opposite the Beach Hotel, the only negative is that it is VERY loud at night because of the music/drunks - you really cant go to sleep till midnight during week nights and 2am on Fri/Sat nights - it wasnt really a problem for me as I go to bed late but it would be a significant factor for those who go to bed early + children - so pack your ear plugs (you will need to wear them in the morning too as the garbage truck visits every am!).
