“Everything we wanted”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

We stayed in Ocean view apartment 309 and we loved everything about it but especially the fantastic views. We couldn't fault it and it gave us everything we wanted from our short stay in Port Macquarie.

We stayed in room 408 a 3 bedroom apartment. From the moment we were shown this we thought " Wow ". The apartment was fantastic and fully equipped to all your needs. The location is perfect. Right across the road from the beach, watching the sun rise each morning ( and the whales ), to the sun setting each evening from our verandah, it was perfect. If it got too hot ( as it did for my mother in law ), she was able to sit on the verandah at the rear of our apartment to watch the tennis and bowls. We stayed here in the middle of our trip and it was fantastic to have our own laundry room to freshen our clothes. You also feel very safe from leaving your car in the garage to the private lift to your apartment. Highly recommended.

It was a real pity that we stayed here just for 1 night & that too checked in very late around 10pm as we were driving from Goldcoast & we stopped for much longer than expected at Byron Bay.

We booked a 3 bedroom apartment as we were 3 couples.All the rooms were huge,the master bedroom had a open bathroom with a tub.The view from the apartment was amazing,directly looking at the ocean.The kitchen and living room were very spacious.

We hardly got a feel of the place as we had to check out by 10:30am,we really regret not having more time !

Beautiful apartments ! Danny the manager was very helpful with all the instructions for collecting the keys and the directions to our unit (our apartment,i think unit 303 had a dedicated lift which opened right outside the apartment) as we arrived late as mentioned.

Great place to stay !

From check-in to check out, this has been the best serviced apartment we have stayed in: it not only met our expectations but far surpassed them. With two sitting rooms, huge master bedroom en suite running onto a spacious balcony overlooking the ocean in one direction and a spa and shower in the other, this suite could not be faulted. A large well appointed kitchen, second shower/toilet area and large sitting room with a gi-normous tv (which we were too busy to watch) made us feel very special and extremely pampered.
I would stay here any time without hesitation.
Oh and the Stunned Mullet restaurant just downstairs has won a well deserved 'hat' for excellence in cuisine.

Room Tip: As far as I can see, ever apartment is a winner

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.

Room Tip: Apartment 409 great views
