Dreamcatcher Apartments are beautiful! Stunning apartment blocks in vivid lilac, green, yellow and blue shades, with internal decor and furnishings to match. They are arranged around a central dip pool surrounded by palms and other exotic plants. Water cascades over stainless steel fountain plates into the pool. What a place to unwind!
During our stay we were to learn that when John and Annie, the owners, originally submitted the plans to the local council, neighbouring properties got up a petition to protest. Fortunately, the council must have had the foresight to recognise that the colours would disappear behind the extensive planting, and they threw the complaints out. Good on them!
Within the apartments there’s a good range of services with laundry and dishwashing available as well as microwave and hob. There’s a great walk-in dressing area and the shower room is very good. There are two balconies off the apartments, most of which overlook the garden and pool. It’s so peaceful and if we hadn’t gone anywhere all week I’m sure that neither of us would have minded. We could live t here!
As it is, it's very handy for the basics. There's a supermarket about 1km away, just past the Rainforest Habitat, and there's a baker, Otz, just up the road. Its produce is fantastic, but you do pay for what you get. You've got eating options at the two pubs, and there's a bottle shop just across the road!
As others have reported the local shuttles get you in to town for $5 return,and the journey is quite quick. Stops are opposite and in front, in and back, so are very convenient. If you do hire a car then you're quickly onto the Cook Highway to get away on your travels.
Dreamcatcher was our point of entry and we were to tour across Oz. We didn't come across better, although we did find a match, and we'd go back in an eye blink. Just thinking about lying under those palms by the pool... ahhhhh
