Loved the view from the balcony and enjoyed the pool and the easy parking. Just across the road from the esplanade in a quiet area so easy access to walks. A good size bathroom.

On arrival had washing powder, tea, coffee, dishwashing liquid etc for use (free). Towels for swimming provided at cost of $2 per day (or maybe for entire stay. Not sure) Books, DVD,S available to borrow. Fridge/Freezer excellent size or couple/family. Stroll of about 25 minutes along foreshore to the many cafes and eateries. Highly recommended. Graeme.

10/10 Exceptional

We had 3 self contained apartments with views across the Esplanade and beyond. The rooms were very comfortable and met all our needs. The property manager Anthony was excellent, providing any assistance we needed. The pool was delightful and the surrounding gardens give privacy and a tropical setting.

8/10 Very good

Unit was good well equipped and comfortable for our stay. Downside was distance to town and walking a must. Recommend a bus to town etc from Lake st outside hospital but still a bit of a walk required. Anthony the manager v knowledgeable on the area but property needs some sort of transport for guests to commute. Probably wouldnt stay here again only because of proximity to town..
