We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment that had recently been refurbished (still smelt of new carpet) to a very high standard. We were staying on a timeshare exchange and the accommodation was certainly at the high end of the timeshare scale. The bathrooms (we had 2!) were beautiful and had space for putting things away, hanging towels, robes etc. Bed was really comfortable but as someone else mentioned there are no bedside lamps, these would be a very useful addition at minimal cost. Kitchen facilities were good although we had to buy ourselves some mugs as the teacups were too small!! The resort is pretty hilly so wouldn't be any good for anyone with mobility problems but we found it good to walk off some of the food. Restaurant was nice and the staff all really friendly. Location is a bit off the beaten track but there are some lovely walks around beach and its only a short drive to Cathedral Cove/Hot Water Beach areas. You definitely need a car here.
