Our group was 3 adults and we stayed in a 2 bed apartment for 3 nights. The apartment was like brand new - very clean and spacious with big rooms and parking at your front door. Probably the nicest accommodation in Kununurra! The pool area looked lovely although we didn't use it. The staff were really accomodating for our late arrival and we are very grateful for that. Fully stocked kitchen with appliances, pots, cutlery, etc to do your own cooking. Milk, coffee, tea also provided. The only criticism we had was that we were in a bottom level room and we heard every single step that was taken in the room above, which was quite irritating as it happened for a few hours on 2 nights.

Room Tip: Request an upstairs room

The Appartments are perhaps some of the nicest and most confortable accommodation in Kununurra. It is clear a lot of thought has good into their planning, design - but they advertise self contained appartments - well not fully. None have laundary- we were staying in an upstairs apartment and had to carry washing up and down to a communal laundry - which only has 3 washing machines and 2 driers for what must be close to 100 apartments. Plus if the wet season here the rainfalls in Kununurra are monsoonal -very heavy rains - so a person would be soaked to the skin getting to and from the laundry.

The other penny pinching move is the that make sure you bring your own shampoo and conditioner. I and my team stayed for two weeks - I thought there had been an oversight that I didnt get some replacement small shampoo and conditioner ...so I went to reception to just for some and was told the shampoo and conditioner in my bathroom on arrival was a WELCOME PACK..and was told that after that guest are expected to supply their own.

In fairness the appartments are very spacious and nive heavy curtins which when closed provide a nice dark bedroom to help get a good nights sleep.

It is the little things that could make a 5 star accommodation but due to the laundey situation and policy on shampoo and conidtioner they end up only rated by me a 3 star - and yet they charge top dollar...I will stay here again but I will ask the the lower rate tariff available to people who bring their own shampoo,...gee I might get a bigger discount if I bring my own toilet paper.

Room Tip: Make sure you asked for a ground floor room if you dislike climbing stairs. Also ask for a room with...

Hello Pharlapwins

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback via TripAdvisor. It is nice to hear that you are finding your accommodation comfortable.

In regard to the laundry, we have 50 apartments that utilise the guest laundry and so far it has been working very well to our knowledge.

We are sure there has been a misunderstanding in regard to the shampoo and conditioner provided in your apartment. Shampoo, conditioner, body lotion and bath gel are provided in your apartment on arrival and replaced every two days as part of our towel change service. We also have additional supply available from reception at no charge.

We are pleased that you would like to stay with us again and would encourage all guests at the time of booking to indicate any preference for an upstairs or downstairs apartment, which we will accommodate where possible.

We recently stayed in these beautifully appointed apartments for 3 nights and had the most amazing time visiting this remote area. We were 3 couples sharing a 3 bedroom apartment. The apartment was spacious and modern. It was supplied with all the necessities for a comfortable stay. Beautiful local sandalwood toiletries are a special touch in the bathrooms and an extra outdoor shower off the main bedroom is a unique feature. All staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The grounds are beautiful and immaculately kept. The pool is stunning with a gorgeous waterfall feature and barbecue area is very clean and easy to operate. This property is extremely well maintained and of very high quality. I thoroughly recommend it!

After a long day's travel - by any means - Freshwater East Kimberley Apartments will greet you with open arms. It is a modern, immaculate,comfortable home away from home. My partner and I stayed in a lovely two bedroom unit which was very tastefully decorated (with some original art commissioned for the premises), fully equipped and cool (which appeals to Canadians in the tropics). The outdoor shower (there is an indoor one too - don't worry) was one feature which reminded us of Canada (in the summer) and something which made total sense at Freshwater. We really liked the layout of the apartment - spacious yet functional for short or long term stays. The Kimberleys are incredible and anyone fortunate enough to visit the region will experience the icing on the cake at Freshwater in Kununarra.

I recently stayed at Freshwater Apartments while on business in Kununurra. The one bedroom apartment was spacious and well equipped, the staff were extremely helpful and made my two night stay a great experience. The location was perfect in relation to the airport and I will not be staying anywhere else on my next trip to Kununurra.

Our family of five stayed at Freshwater for almost a week. Have to say, we were very impressed with the standard of accommodation and the excellent service from staff. They couldn't have been more friendly! We had a three bedroom two bathroom, plus an outdoor shower, apartment. First thing that you notice are the huge rooms and spaciousness, big enough to lose the kids in! It was new looking, spotless and had all the modern cons, the kitchen was fantastic for cooking for the family which spilled into the lounge area where there was a deep L shaped couch big enough for us all to sit on! There were great views of Celebrity Tree Park across the road (which the kids loved!) with a long front patio (with outdoor table) area. Pool was huge, and really enjoyed the BBQ facilities by the pool. Great holiday accommodation. Loved Kununurra. Thanks Freshwater, we'll be back :)
