          Friendly staff, helpfull provided a lot of information about surrounding and possibilities of excursions.

          Appartment was tidy and clean, allthough the corners should be cleaned as well.

        • Family with children
          8.8

          Large comfortable rooms. The owners extremely helpful with bookings and advice on local activities. Easy walking distance to main part of town.

          There is a backpackers hostel next door which can be noisy.

        • Family with children
          9.2

          The facilities that were available within the room were extremely convenient, especially for our family. The room included an ensuite to both bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen and laundry, as well as austar channels and air conditioning. The staff were very friendly and pleasant, and were willing to help us at all times.

          The room was not serviced at all during our stay.

        • Family with children
          9.6

          The friendly staff, Kevin and Linda who took time to talk with us. During one conversation, I mentioned to Kevin that my husband and sons loved aircraft, the following day he telephoned the room to let us know that there was a plane currently doing aerobatics over the esplanade and we would be able to see from the front of the complex if we wanted to take a look...very thoughtful of him. It is this kind of personal service that makes them stand out and will see us return. Facilities were also very nice, well maintained and very comfortable and affordable for a family.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          These apartments are excellent value for money. We were within 5 min. walking of the main town. The staff were friendly, efficient and really made us feel welcome.

        • Family with children
          9.6

          Friendly Staff. Comfortable and Clean Accomodation with no defects.

        • Older travelers
          5.4

          The pool and garden was well maintained and kept clean

          the advertisement said that the room was to be 'serviced' after 4 days - the sheets and towels were changed - as we were out and had the beach towells with us at the time - these were not replaced. The unit was not cleaned as part of the service.

        • Group of friends
          10.0

          The upgrade to a town house was great and the staff were very obliging and helpful when we had requests.

          The rain!

        • Group of friends
          7.8

          very spacious close to shopping and the city, but still quiet and secure

          more dusting and cleaning to the bedrooms

        • Family with children
          9.6

          Apartments were great!!

          Too many stairs with pram and baby!!

        • Family with children
          10.0

          I was impressed with the courteous staff,well kept gardens and surrounds. The 2 bedroom townhouse was comfortable,very clean and spacious.

          disappointed the pool wasn't heated

        • Group of friends
          9.2

          Secure parking was good, facilities were excellent,position was good, only a 10 min walk to most venues.

          Only problem was it was next to "the Asylum" backpackers buildings &due to the world cup matches they could be loud until 2/3 am in the morning. This would probably not be a normal problem.

        • Family with children
          6.2

          The staff were very responsive to issues we raised and when my son left his wedding ring behind, the owner found it and went out of his way to drop it off to him at the airport. This was greatly appreciated.

          I was disappointed the room was only serviced once during our stay and this was the first time I have ever had to buy toilet rolls while on holiday because they were not replenished.

        • Family with children
          10.0

          Apartment worked really well for 4 Adults roomy spacious great layout pool was lovely well maintained. Staff really helpfull for booking trips and activities. Close to esplanade with lovely restuarants. Would definately recommend, loved it

        • Family with children
          8.2

          The fact that it was confortable and local

          It catered for a family on a budget, it's pool
