It was a pleasure to stay at the resort and as I was there for 9-nights it really felt like a home away from home which was great. Having a car-park by next to each villa was handy too.
First impressions was that it felt and looked really clean and tidy and nice little touches like rolled towels on beds. Was really happy that decor effort had been made with modest bathrooms that were white tiled and modern/nice shower.
I was asked if I was happy to receive room service around 6 days into my stay so that linen and towels could be refreshed which was great.
Loved having Foxtel movie access to pass the time on odd day there was a tropical rain shower.
Good kitchen space and amount of utensils right down to pyrex dishes and wine glasses.
Only improvements I'd make would be possibly a convection oven in place of no actual oven (good stove top though which was fine) and an iPod/radio dock, but spent most my time out that it wasn't a major.
Pool area was lovely and clean/spacious - couple of little square side tables for putting wine/nibble on might've made it even better. Really enjoyed it regardless.
Only 5-mins walk from Elizabeth Beach and another15-mins to Boomerang Beach and finally just couple mins over the hill from there Bluey's which had great little shops that included Pharmacy, Home Gift Shop, Fish n Chip Shop, Cafe (great food, just busy so bit of a wait), Pizza Bar (so yum!), newsagent for basic groceries and excellent wineshop/liquor store just next door which also sold top quality snacks, cheese, organic crackers etc. Just the right amount of everything.
If you were there for awhile Forster is only 20-mins drive away for Coles, superstores and mall access.
Overall I had a great time and the villa was a real haven to come back to at the end of a busy day prepping for my sisters wedding. Would definitely stay there again!
