Beautiful place to stay. We stayed two nights mid-week in November with our three year old. For the same price as the tiny motel rooms we stayed at in other locations we got a well appointed unit with separate bedroom and living space, and full kitchen. So much space! Lovely thou

Hi Kim E, thanks so much for taking the time to write us this fantastic review. Great to hear that you enjoyed the nice spacious apartments, we think that's certainly one of the advantages we have here and always great to hear it from people. Thank you for noticing all the little extra's and love to hear that you enjoyed the pool and gardens. Hope to see you guys again. Thanks Shannon

Lovely spot, completely automated and seamless check-in (reception closes at 1pm on weekends), roomy and spotless apartment, great amenities (pool for kids, tennis for grown-ups), parking on site and literally a stone’s throw from the beach (un-patrolled).
BUT

Hi BonzoD, thanks for your great review. Glad you guys enjoyed the beach, pool and tennis court, and will pass on your praise to our housekeepers. We are a little out of town and probably a bit far to walk to the restaurants however by car we are only a 10 min drive to the main restaurant area (Jetty/Marina precinct) and about 5-10min drive to the main Park Beach Plaza Shopping Centre or the CBD. Great to hear that you got out and enjoyed the Solitary Island Coastal walk, that's definitely a good tip to make sure you come back the way you came, as the way you went along the road is not only the long way but also not really safe for walking as a large stretch of the road doesn't have a footpath as you mentioned. I do the walk regularly and find that I don't usually have any issue's with mosquitoes however we have just come off the back of about 3 weeks of rain so there are probably more around than usual. Also if you go on dusk they can be worse. Excellent to hear that overall you had a great stay and thanks for taking the time to write this review. Thanks Shannon

I wish I had found this place years ago. It was just a wonderful place hidden away. Spacious with all that we needed. Right next to the beach. Must have a car go get supplies as there is no shop nearby

Hi Gacannings, thank you so much for taking the time to write us this great review. Glad you enjoyed your stay at our "Little Gem" of a place. Good tip on having a car, we are just a little to far out of town to walk to the shops but only a quick 5-10 min drive to a couple of different shopping centers and the CBD. Hope you guys can stay with us again some time. Thanks Shannon

Hi Denise r, thank you very much for your review and feedback. We always love having you guys and your family come and stay, you have indeed stayed in most of our ground floor apartments by now. As you know we have been busy renovating however as you pointed out unit 3 still has a bit to do. We are working with the owners of this apartment to modernise it. This one had recently sold so the previous owners had not wanted to renovate prior to sale. The new owners are lovely people and should be coming on board to address these issues. So will hopefully have all this items updated in the near future. Look forwards to welcoming you guys back again this coming Jan/Feb for your next stay. Next time we have you in your favourite apartment ;) Thanks Shannon

We were impressed at the cleanliness and size of this 2bedroom unit. We were upgraded as we had only paid for a 1 bedroom place.
There was a fully fitted out kitchen
and pleasant outside area
Super friendly welcome and loads of places to eat within easy driving distance. It’s

Hi ZigzagMandurah, Thanks for taking the time to write us this review and give your feedback. We pride ourselves on our cleanliness so thank you for letting us know it was "squeaky clean", I will pass this onto our housekeepers. Sorry about the phone, I will look into this as there should be a phone in there. Also very sorry about the guests above. It is usually a very nice quiet and peaceful place here and it's never good when we have guest like the ones above that don't respect others. We had these guests removed the following day so hopefully your next night was much more peaceful. Thanks Shannon
