“Great place to stay for business or family”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

I stayed a few days here on business and it was great. Short walk to the beach and walks on the headland. Swimming pool, good outdoor BBQ that many made use of and was clean and quite the meeting point! A bit of a hike to supermarkets, you will want to take a car for more than a bag or two, or to the CBD if you are carrying things.
The rooms were very clean and I couldn't ask for any more.
We will probably stay there when we travel north with the kids, as well as when on business.
Staff were very friendly and helpful.
Only downside is the parking can be a bit tight and some people seemed to have trouble with the narrow spots (made for entertaining watching!)

Port Macquarie is already a very family friendly place for a holiday and staying in an accomodation which provides you with the comfort of home away from home is definitely a plus .... we stayed in a 2 good sized bedroom flat with lounge dining and a full kitchen facilities are provided - for the kids - pay tv with full access to latest kids friendly channel is avaulable free of charge .... the outdoor pool is heated and my kids loved it ! the value for money is definitely good and we're there to explore and enjoy Port Mac .... place is definitely clean and tidy and were happy campers !

Great place to stay friendly staff very welcoming on arrival
Close to town & beach easy walk along town beach close to local club
Great for families / BBQ facilities. Common BBQ area was cleaned daily to perfection - we ate there most nights. Other guests were friendly /family orientated.
Will recommend & will return

Arrived mid-afternoon last Friday on a "spur of the moment" decision to getaway on the final weekend of our annual leave. Although we didn't have a booking or know if we were staying 2 or 3 nights, Ian was very welcoming & polite, booking us into a 1st floor, 2 bedroom apartment (a blessing when one of us started snoring in the wee hours of the morning). Although the downstairs neighbours were quite rowdy until 1.30am on the first night, we were very happy with the apartment finding it very clean & modern with all the essentials. The pool, BBQ area & grounds were kept lovely & we discovered the rosellas & chooks amongst the gardens on our 2nd afternoon. Afternoon drinks on the balcony were very relaxing before freshening up to take the short stroll to the bowling club for dinner. The location was ideal, away from the busy traffic in the main part of town yet close enough to the beautiful beaches. Thanks for a most enjoyable stay Ian. We'll most certainly be recommending Oxley Cove Apartments to our family & friends.

We stayed in a apartment with our children here as a one night stop on our way up to Queensland. The place was immaculate and the service we received from the gentleman working was great.He was very accommodating letting us check in earlier than we were supposed to. The pool was great and it was nice and close to the main strip of town. The bathroom was a little small, but for the price and how long we stayed I was more than satisfied.

One night is certainly not long enough to explore and enjoy the beauty of Port Macquarie. Our policy is always if the unit is available and ready the guest is welcome to go in before 2pm.

We look forward to you returning.

The property is ideally located, close to the beaches and to town if you have your own vehicle. Parking is ample.The apartment we had was clean and well equipped, though the heating was rather inadequate given it was July. We find the service to be up to mark and great for the price, We would definitely return.

Thanks for taking the time to give us a great review. As we advertise we are only 300 mtrs to the beach and yes July is not beach weather. Maybe you can return in the warmer months and see Port Macquarie and Oxley Cove in a different light.

Apartment very clean, bright, airy. We were there to compete in Ironman Triathlon. Most helpful, friendly staff organized down stairs room, plus extra keys as we were not always on site at same time (out training along beautiful coast). Owen Street meets part of IM course, at beach. 1.6 km from Town Centre so a bit far for multiple trips if you did not have your own car (which we did have). No free wifi but City Library is easy walk distance. Just a really pleasant atmosphere. We are 60-64

Room Tip: If you are there to race, ask for down stairs room, to make easier movement of bike in and out.
