We stayed in a ground floor 2 bed unit facing the beach. The beach at horseshoe bay is on of the best on Magnetic and the complex is very well located, with the beach across the road and the small group of shops located just a block away. The unit complex is older style, low key and well maintained. Would... More

My family and I stayed here at apartment 4 (best view!). Amazing view of sunsets and beach within a stone's throw. Lovely staff, you can borrow the jeep, awesome snorkelling. Apartments are 90s style but beds are comfy and they have everything you need. Restaurants are 100m down the road and check out the superb coffee next door.

We had a wonderful week at sails on horseshoe. Every effort was made to ensure that our family was comfortable. Everyone was super helpful and very generous (had access to scooters, games, beach toys) and were always very friendly and accessible. The location was amazing and the rooms were very clean and comfortable.

We recently stayed at Sails for 10 nights in unit 6 which is a one bedroom ground floor unit facing out to the beach. We had a wonderful stay and loved opening the curtains every morning and looking out across the water. Kathy & Phil are great managers and nothing was too much trouble. They were particularly accommodating when upon... More

I stayed here with friends and the room was fabulous. Just across from the water, close to all facilities and the managers were very helpful. All the extra things made a big difference with access to scooters a real plus. The apartment was big and all great cooking equipment.

Wonderfully located, very clean beach-style apartments. Opposite a quiet part of the beach on Horseshoe Bay, perfect for watching the sun sets. Only a 1 minute walk to a great cafe and a series of local restaurants. Great hosts and very well equipped and maintained apartments. We even had the use of an old jeep on a couple of occasions,...

Kathy and Phil are wonderful hosts, they even met us on arrival at 10pm! The apartment was clean and well prepared and had a sensational view. The apartment was well appointed and the perfect spot for a family holiday. The pool is lovely and the location of this resort can't be beaten, just across from the beach and a 50m... More

This past week have had a fabulous relaxing vacation on Maggie, staying at what I reckon is the best location on the Island - ground floor & just across the road from Horseshoe Bay. Managers were most helpful and courteous. Apartment was 'self-contained' with all we needed to either cook our own meals or walk a short distance to the... More

The managers are helpful and run the place well. The unit was clean and well equipped, nice fluffy white towels and good supply of bathroom products. We had a ground floor studio apartment just across the road is the beach and up the road are heaps of restaurants. The bed was comfortable with fresh white linen. Only draw back with... More
