“Really Nice!”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Great apartment accommodation. I stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment. We had lovely views of the inlet. The beach was a short walk away. I initially worried that we wouldn't be near anywhere to get food, but there were a choice amount of cafes right downstairs and up the street! The Apartments were all decked out with modern furniture, lots of it purchased from IKEA. :) A great flat screen TV, lovely little kitchen and nice bedrooms and bathroom. Car parking was easy. The only thing I can say that's even remotely bad was it was a little confusing as to where to go to get to the entrances of the apartments from the car park, but all you had to do was go up the stairs. I really can't review this in great depth because the place was just so good. There was even a sunlight! If you want an enjoyable beach holiday near Aireys Inlet I recommend you stay at Inlet Beach Apartments!

Great location with view from balcony over the inlet of a great egret and nightly kangaroo's. Very convenient to shops and easy walk to beach. Lovely space - easy for 4 adults. Apartment was very clean and modern but a bit skimpy on glassware. Easy parking below. Not cheap but nothing is this time of year and better value than other options. Ask for upstairs apartment away from the road ( as traffic noise is a problem). We'll be back.

Cute, modern apartments. Full of sunlight and beautiful views. Very well situated near some wonderful cafe's and terrific Fish & Chip shops. The private courtyard is convenient and has a BBQ. We enjoyed it very much and it was very good value for money.

We were a little bit worried before the stay as of the bad reviews here. However, not quite sure if they have different management now or what, the apartment is actually very clean. We also have no noise issues.

Comfortableness: The river view is very stunning that my mom and dad enjoyed the moment when kangaroos were jumping across the river. The beds are not heavenly beds but average mattresses. Overall, this apartment is comparable to a 4.5 star hotel.

Uniqueness: This apartment is not like a usual hotel with a reception but more like a vacation apartment. It's just like your home that you pop in on your own whenever you are around this area. It saves you from the hassle and wait of checking in. Your key is saved in a box next to your door.

Service: We were served by a staff called Veronica, since as mentioned you will not get to meet the staffs there easily when they don't feature reception desk, but emailing them you will receive replies in like 5 minutes. The emails are also clearly written and can pinpoint your questions. They even picked up my call at 3 am in the morning.

In summary, we highly recommend this apartment.

I had read some dodgy reviews of this accommodation so was a little wary. But I had nothing to worry about. The upstairs apartment with lovely views over the creek towards Fairhaven was spacious and luxurious, and well provisioned. Underground parking was a plus, and at this time of the year overcrowding was not an issue.
Excellent location, within walking distance of the shopping strip and inlet beach, and a good stretch to upper shops and the lighthouse.
It was a joy sitting in the lounge area looking out of the full glass windows, or sitting on the private balcony when the weather permitted.
Our bed was very comfortable, and outside noise was not a problem.
The complimentary bottle of wine was delicious and much appreciated.
The only concern was a weird smell wafting up through the plumbing, I think coinciding with popular shower times.
The key safe also proved a challenge. We have had difficulties with this model before at other accommodations.
Love Aireys Inlet, and Inlet Beach Apartments lived up to our expectations.

Room Tip: you definitely want to go for upstairs and the view over the river.

Fabulous location overlooking river on one side and park and ocean to the other.... cute cafe/deli on the corner and short, easy drive to Anglesea. My husband and I were impressed with the cleanliness of the unit and modern furnishings. No reception desk however we were given contact numbers should we need supplies etc. no need though.
Definitely coming back at Christmas time... we really enjoyed our stay!!

Just spent a great weekend at Aireys Inlet. It’s a quite getaway with beautiful beaches and spectacular walks in the state forest. IBA Apartments are modern and nicely finished but quite compact. Great location facing the river with views of Kangaroos in the morning. Check-in was a bit tricky as there is no reception. You access apartments by a key, left in a little safe with security keypad - works ok once you get used to it. We found the apartments to be clean and had everything we needed. We were missing some wine glassed though and rang the owners who were very obliging and arranged replacements. It’s a really nice place for a quite weekend away.
