“Quality property”
Reviewed April 15, 2012

Stayed for 3 nights and really enjoyed the experience. Grounds are well kept. Rooms are large and with balconies on both levels. Bed was a pillowtop and extra comfy although units are owned by individual people so level could vary from unit to unit. Ours was overlooking the heated pool (only 1 of the 4 are heated so can get a little noisy). Well layed out for kids and within walking distance to beach, although agnes water township for groceries etc is a short drive away. Would stay again.

We had a 2 bedroom, 2 bath Town house. It was clean, comfortable and everything worked.
We paid $160/night and thought it well worth it.

We opened the door to a very spacious 2 bed 2 bathroom unit. It was very clean and comfortable. We particularly liked the location as it was on the main road between 1770 and Agnes. Highly recommended.

My wife and I stayed in a one bedroom apartment on a Friday and Saturday night in October. I am a sales rep and often take my wife with me and after spending the first week of a two week trip in hotel rooms I was looking forward to some space. I was not disappointed. The apartment was clean, roomy and beautifully appointed. I had made my booking a couple of days earlier by using Wotif.com. Unfortunately the property had not checked its bookings and were not expecting me. The greeting was far from friendly, but the manager was able to find us accommodation without too much trouble. But that was it. No explanation of facilities or anything else to do with the establishment. a great shame because the complex is fantastic. The setting is lovely and very relaxing. The local pub offers great food and entertainment. More importantly a courtesy bus to pick up and take back. Having stayed at Agnes Water before I was aware of this. Thankfully because the management never mentioned it. All said great accommodation, but maybe we caught the manager by surprise andf she never quite recoverd.

Room Tip: Book a room backing on to the pool area. But beware that it can be quite noisy early in the morning...

Roomy accommodation, complex good standard, not upmarket but good value for money. Main annoyance was the rules written everywhere and threat of $20 fine if you fiddle with TV settings! A short walk to beach which is grear swimming beach.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the road are best if you want a sleep in. Some rooms step out into pool area so if...

We stayed at The Edge on Beaches in a 2 bedroom Garden Villa for 3 nights in November. The villa (upstairs/downstairs) was very spacious. 2 bathrooms upstairs (ensuite and main) and another toilet downstairs. Downstairs is open plan Kitchen/dining/lounge area and there is a nice flat screen television (bit on the small side for the size of the room though). The fan in the main bedroom didn't work but there is aircon in both rooms and one downstairs. There was a bit of noise from what seemed to be workers getting in late and going out very early. The pools are lovely but if you are staying in a Garden Villa it isn't very welcoming as they are situated directly outside the Poolside Villas and you can see directly into their Villas. The BBQ area is nice though in the middle. The beach is a small walk but is worth it as it is quite deserted. The only other thing i need to mention is my fiance and friend broke out in itchy bite marks on their legs and followed the usual patterns of the breakfast/lunch and dinner of bed bugs as they say (3 bites in a row), i did research it and it did look bed bugs to my knowledge (my Fiance works in construction and gets bitten by midgies and they were nothing like this). I did email Edge on beaches and they said they checked the bed and there was no bed bugs, it is hard to say as we did not check at the time we were there. They said it might have been midges but it is strange that my friend broke out 2 days later which also suggests bed bugs. Anyway apart from that it was a nice stay and the staff were friendly.

Room Tip: If you want to use the pools best to pay the little bit extra and get a poolside villa as the pools...
