“Great mid-winter value”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

It was such a shame that my one night stay was for work. A colleague and I shared a two bedroom apartment and it was just perfect, should we have decided to stay for a week instead! I took the back bedroom, which still had ocean views...what's to complain about? We dined at 'The stunned mullet' downstairs. It was a bit expensive...but oh my word, was the fish to die for!? Special seafood each night, option for pan-fried or steamed, with appropriate sauces and veg. Nice beach and breakwall across the road to walk off the dinner. If on a budget, the bowling club is just across the back lane...very popular there. i have suggested a short stay there with hubby on our next trip to Port.

Room Tip: Pick an apartment with beach views back and front.

My Husband & I spent 8 nights recently in apartment 409, we had a fantastic day. Host were fantastic & very helpful. Apartment was very clean & modern, plenty of room for the 2 of us plus our family members who live local & visited daily..
Best location that suited our lifestyle.
we could see the dolphins & whales from our balcony & we look forward to returning with our children.
Great for families & a couple getaway.

Very nice 3 bedroom unit!
Recently modernised with big new TV's in the living room and main bedroom, some new furnishings and a well appointed kitchen. The beds and linen where good quality.
The unit has two balconies, two bathrooms, laundry and heaps of space everywhere.
The view of the ocean, beach and the rivers entrance can entertain me for hours, especially on a big run out tide!
We will definitely be staying here again! Very good value!

Just finishing up a two week stay here with the in-laws (they are staying 6!) and couldn't speak highly enough of this apartment. A true home away from home, the 3 bedder we stayed in has more than enough space for 6 of us (includes two young girls). The master bed (huge comfy king sized thanks very much) opens up to a balcony with an unbeatable beach vista and even the bath offers you a view of the sea!

Literally a stone's throw from town beach which the three year old has taken full advantage of. Great jogging/walking tracks on the door step also keep you busy.

Overall a quiet, peaceful, relaxing and convenient holiday was had courtesy of this great apartment. Highly recommended.

The location of this property opposite Town Beach is it's greatest asset. It was hard to take my eyes off the view over the beach and river entrance. Watching the boats, surfers, and dolphins, kept me engrossed when in. The unit was spacious, and well appointed. The loo with a view and glass walled shower was novel. The large spa bath was a luxury that we all enjoyed. It's proximity to town, cafe's, the club, the observatory, and restaurant makes this property very conveniently located. We really enjoyed our stay.

My husband and I have just returned from weekend treat, What a special treat it was, great value, excellent location with 180 degree views of the ocean, beaches and coastline, beach directly across the road and only a short flat walk along the breakwall of the river into town.The spotless apartment was huge and very well equipped with their own private entrance, double garage in a security area, with lift access directly up to your apartment.The friendly welcome and service we were given by Danny and Barbara were all we could have asked for and we will certainly be back for a longer stay next time.

We have just returned from a week in apartment 408 and loved it thanks to Tripadvisor. Apart from a few stains on the carpet the place was spotless. On arrival Barb gave us a full oprientation of this very spacious apartment and surrounds. The perspex see through wall around the shower and toilet means you should be careful who you stay there with though. We had a three bedroom apartment to ourselves with two bedrooms locked which was fair enough. Two large balconies at the front and rear of the apartment add to its charm. It is unserviced but there is everything you need including a washer, dryer and dishwasher. The cost is very reasonable for the quality and location of the property and we would stay there again.
