I just came back from my trip of 1-6may 2013. Stayed at the penthouses... Rooms were large. The master bedroom and living room had a balcony.And the view was awesome! Toilets were clean
.but the masterbedroom was a bit dusty.. n we found some ice cream n rotten food in the kitchen area.so we threw it away. Lots of spider webs. N there were 2 of the days i found a baby spider on my pillow and a bed bug on my bed.lucky i saw it n disposed it. im quite sentitive to dust so some rashes appeared.Other than that it was fine.
There are no cleaning ladies to change ur bedsheets or clean up the apartment.so expect to use the same sheets for the whole week. The rooms was already cool and we didnt even have to on the fans. Dishwashing liquids n sponge, kitchen utensils are all provided..The water heater was great for hot showers.
Beach is right out front..
I was glad i took the unlimited bus pass for 95aud..as i feel that walking to surfers is quite a distance, especially for those who cant walk much...
At night it was really cold. So bring those extra socks
The frontdesk lady is not around early in the morning and at night.they will give u a passcode to key in to enter...
As i checked out early as 5.30am in the morning, the keys are to be put in the safe at the frontdesk area.as nobody is around. So i suggest that u pay the balance upon checking in as there will no one at the frontdesk if u have to check out as early as i did.
Overall the stay was great and i enjoyed myself. But i will try out another hotel or apartment the next time. Thank u the penthouses... and thanks to marissa who has been helpful in all of our enquiries.
