I think it is a thank you for your review! Sorry you found the couches uncomfortable but most guests especially love the older style. Pool noise can always be annoying and we do try to monitor it without upsetting those concerned.

Thank you for your review Nicole. We agree some of the apartments are a little dated and we would love our owners to update however the size and location are exceptional. Sorry you thought the apartment was musty but I do know that each apartment has it's own "smell" although I would not have thought musty. Pleased you enjoyed your stay and took the time to make a contribution to our reviews. Just beautiful in Port Douglas right now.
