We stayed in the 3 bedroom apartment for a week. Very spacious and comfortable. Location is great, close to beach, cafes, bowling club etc. Thankyou Deb for looking after us so well and going beyond what a manager should do, especially with my son. We had a great time. Mum is planning to come back with friends. Thanks again for the hospitality. Excellent value for money.

Thanks for your review Sue.it makes it all worthwhile to know that my guests are happy with their stay and makes it even better knowing you will be back. Glad you and your family had a great time. Your son touched my heart the day he arrived and it was a pleasure and had lots of fun singing along with him. Glad mum's coming back with friends and we look forward to seeing you all again in the near future.

Very comfortable. Spacious unit with large bedrooms and comfortable loungeroom. Excellent condition. It is getting dated, but it is in top condition and very clean and comfortable. Felt like a home away from home. A very short walk to the beach; you could hear the waves crashing at night!! Quiet street at night and in the day. Very comfortable bed, best night sleep in a long time! Friendly hostess, very welcoming. Thankyou for a value-for-money accomodation.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 5.

we stayed for one night on our way through town and when checking out i thought "wish we could stay for a week!" our room was very comfortable and much larger than we were expecting. Very good location and the staff very helpful and accommodating. excellent value for money.

Thats a great review thank you Linda - We are glad that you were impressed with the size of your apartment - they are very spacious and we believe that makes the stay away from home, more enjoyable - there is nothing worse than being cramped up and uncomfortable.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Adrift by the Beach
