First of all- Location. Less than a minutes walk to the beautiful Four Mile Beach and direct entrance to the stinger net. Macrossan Street with all it's wonderful array of shops and restaurants is an easy stroll around the corner. Across the road is a lovely park and there is a small children's playground next to the Surf Club Restaurant.
Second- the unit itself was very well presented and clean with all the mod cons a family needs ( big screen t.v, washing machine, dryer, air con) and the kitchen was well stocked for those cooking in. Also there were plenty of towels, spare pillows and blankets.
Third- Staff were genuinely friendly and helpful. I called ahead to request a ground floor apartment as we were travelling with my elderly Mother (This also gave us a courtyard off our generous sized balcony and direct street access). This and other needs were all met, check in was seamless, help was immediately offered when I couldn't figure out the t.v/cable and excellent recommendations made for suitable restaurant choices for said elderly Mum and two kids.
Finally- The complex itself is attractive with a nicely laid out common area stocked with plenty of tourist brochures and comfy lounges that I noticed many people made use of. I was particularly impressed with the pool and bbq area which I was expecting to be a bit of a mess given that Cyclone Ita had been through two days previously but there was no sign of debris and the pool was crystal clear and ready for use... and it got plenty from my kids at least.
Mowbray By The Sea was great value for money in a fantastic location and run by friendly, motivated people who obviously take pride in their work. We will definitely return.
