This may well be the best place to stay in Strahan at the moment, it's modern, roomy and has truly sensational views the harbour. But it's not quite got the quality the pictures might lead you to expect. The spiral staircase sounds like it's breaking apart when you walk on it, the fridge is dying and not going quietly. There's...

Apartment #1 clearly does not receive a thorough&satisfactory clean between occupancies. Specifics- - unreadable airconditioner remote control due to grime. We cleaned it! -dust blown around apartment. Dirty aircon filters judging by layer of grime on top of unit. Dead spiders on surfaces and some cobwebs. Timber venetians very dusty. - greasy hand prints all over stainless steel refrigerator door...

Fully self contained for a relaxing holiday break. Stunning views over Macquarie Harbour. Stayed in the one bedroom apartment. For the price of the accommodation I would like to see the bedding upgraded (including linen - bed too small & saggy for my liking). Convenient and quiet location. A doormat on the balcony would be appreciated to save cleaning the...

The freestanding house, one of two, perched on cliff overlooking Macquarie harbour, was tastefully decorated and well equipped for self catering visit to Strahan, the picture windows and comfy sofas made for observing the 4 seasons we experienced in the few days of our visit. The fishing boats, tourist charters, cargo vessels, and storms passing through this rugged and beautiful...

Very spacious apartment. Fabulous views from both floors. Nice furnishings throughout. Fairly expensive, but worth it. We would definitely stay here again. Walking distance to Restaurants etc. was a plus as we didn't use our car at all.

The fabulous view is the first thing that strikes you when you enter the apartment - huge floor to ceiling window overlooking the harbour. The chairs are comfy; the kitchen is well fitted and there is a shower room downstairs with washing machine plus an upstairs shower area and jacuzzi bath. All lovely apart from 2 things - no wifi...

After reading a few previous reports about facilities provided we came prepared with certain provisions. The owners provided breakfast cereal, milk, orange juice etc enough for 2 day. The view down the bay are fantastic, we were told Strahan harbour is the biggest in Australia. I would recommend a drive out to the Great Ocean beach the views are fantastic....

The view from the apartment is nothing short of spectacular regardless of the weather conditions. Best view by far offered by any place I've stayed. Could have stayed more than two nights. Would suggest to the owners to touch up the paint and restain some if the furniture. Overall we loved the property - thank you!

Don't be deterred by previous reviews..we are two couples traveling together and were all so impressed with this accommodation! First impressions..we were wowed by the unobstructed views over Strahan Harbour and out to sea. Self catering, we had everything we needed, but a good sharp knife was the only thing lacking. We had our own breakfast goodies so we were...
