“Great Travel Auctions escape”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

My wife and I recently enjoyed a Travel Auction to Flynns on Surf. We enjoyed lovely beach walks to the city centre. The townhouse was spacious and exceptionally clean. The kitchen was well equipped, and there was a deck overlooking delightful gardens.

Thanks Travel Auctions and Flynns on Surf for a great holiday!

Spent a few days here, had an excellent stay close to the beach, spacious villas and very clean.
Perfect to relax for a couple of days, had a villa backing on to a creek and enjoyed the wildlife while sitting on our balcony. We did have a rainy day but this was ok as we had 2 large tvs with satelite movies and comfortable lounge and beds

We ( myself and 2 children) spent 5 nights at Flynns in the Easter Holidays this year and had a fabulous time. Despite it being in school holiday time I was able to save $20 a night by booking directly with the property instead of via wotif or other 3rd party sites (I did started researching prices with them then checked out the property's own website for specials and was able to upgrade to a 3 bedroom apartment for less than what I was going to pay for a 2 bedroom)
The apartment was extremely comfortable, spacious and had everything we needed for a great stay. Parking was in a private garage downstairs to each apartment. The apartment was fully self contained and very well set out. The choice of available cable channels was excellent and appreciated for night times. The second tv in the master bedroom was also a nice touch.
The location is also good as it is a nice walk to the beach and the main part of town is far enough away to enjoy peace and quiet, but close enough to be accessible for a supply run trip in the car. (or via the walking / cycle tracks if you are so inclined)

Spent four days here and it was a good place to sleep despite the squeaky bed. Place was a little grubby and hadn't had a proper clean in some time. The dishwasher was old and dirty and under the lounge was disgusting. We were able to kill two large cockroaches whilst there. A window was hanging off its hinges in the kitchen and the louvers in the lounge room didn't work at all. In fact they were dangerous with sharp pointy edges. The bathroom was good and usable. The pool in the facility was great, albeit a little shallow.
I wouldn't return here. For the money one can stay in a B&B of much higher quality and breakfast would be supplied.
We did just love Port Macquarie though - So laid back......

Room Tip: Always see the rooms / spaces before paying in full and never be afraid to walk away. There are plen...

Stayed for three weeks in February/March 2012 when the weather was warm and sunny so plenty of time in the pool as well as in the sea at Flynns beach - an easy walk. The unit was spacious and the presence of two bathrooms was a bonus, particularly when grand daughter stayed over. In room entertainment was provided by the WiFi and a large TV. Felt that the kitchen lacked a good range of utensils although this appears common around Australia. Reception was friendly and helpful. We did find that the rear outlook was noisy, (unit backed on to Surf Street), so might suggest asking for one backing on to the reserve. Overall very satisfied and we are returning.

Having recently stayed at 'Flynn's on Surf' I can say that the exerience was excellent. The location is close to the beach and although quite a long walk, you can get to Port CBD by using the walkways along the waters edge. The flexible bedding arrangements allowed for Nanna, Mum and Dad and the two kids to all sleep comfortable in this 3 bedroom property. The pool was heated so although it was June the kids were able to take a quick swim whilst I was cooking the BBQ. Overall a terrific family facility!

I love this place!! We stayed for five nights in the middle of feb. Coming from a small but ok hotel in Sydney to the three bedroom, two bathroom town house at Flynns was almost like heaven. It's situated close to Flynn's beach, so its a stretch to the city center, but if you have a car the house has a lockable garage. There are also some shops and cafees nearby.

The pool area is small, but cozy.

Everything was spotlessly clean and you can wash your clothes for free, as there are a washer and dryer in the garage.

We could not recommend this place more, fantastic for families! Not a place for parties so if that's your scene, you should look elsewhere.
