This was my second stay and also in the same apartment. It was at ground level from the car park but up over the pool at the back and had views across Cudgen Creek. The apartments are interior decorated by the owner, so all are different. Ours had a Bali feel, very comfortable, views over the creek from the kitchen dining room and lounge open plan area. Good to watch the kids in the pool. Plenty of paperbacks and good quality table books to read plus some games. We found the area pleasant with a great boardwalk right outside the gates which took us down to the mouth of the creek and onto the beach. Good brisk morning walk but there is also, bikers, skateboarders, walkers, and dog walking going past the apartments. This does not interfere with sleeping arrangements as the bedrooms are away from the waterfront Meanwhile in the creek there are surf skiers, canoing, kayaking, rowers, a swimming school, surf board training, bathers, fishermen and the odd power boat. This is a great place to take the elderly also to just watch the goings on around them. There is a family of water dragons who live around the pool which the kids liked to see. Walking inland along the boardwalk past the boat ramp outside, is a fairly large park for picnics, toddler swimming and fishing. Just over the bridge you would head along the coast road to Cabarita Beach, Hastings Point and then Pottsville. These are not far and all have good beaches, vistas and lookouts.
The grounds of the complex though not large are well kept and attractive and there is a BBQ area beside the pool.
This is a pleasant area to stay and right on the water whereas the beach views have the main road running right in front with an expansive park with trees opposite before entering the beach. This runs almost the length of the foreshore. Most of the beach swimming occurs at the creek end of the beach and the main shops, boutiques, cafes run from this end also.
I prefer this quieter beach area and it is only about 15>20mins to Tweed Heads, (shopping and clubs) and then back over the border and onwards north to the Gold Coast City and it's beaches.
Well situated, the kids hired the complexe's canoes for 4 hours in the creek, swam in the pool and at the beach and the weather was devine...I'd go there again and again.
