Great apartments - beautiful beach views. We were a group of 6 ladies - some walkers, some swimmers, some readers. The walking track along the cliffs to Cylinder Beach was wonderful. Plenty of space in the apartment to do you own thing. Watching the sunset, meals and wine on the deck - a perfect way to finish each day.

Walking into this beautiful 3 bedroom appartment (unit 40) there was definitely a wow factor. The unit lived up to all our expectations. Very spacious, well appointed and with a stunning view of the beach....Loved having our evening meal on the balcony with the wildlife grazing below. Pool, spa and bbq facilities were uncrowded and a pleasure to use.

Family of three adults and three children. Beautiful customer service, nothing was a problem - which we found very unique for the island. Other places we dined at and visited really lacked customer service, maybe they're just sick of tourists. Only stayed for an extended weekend, can't wait to go back for 10 days to really enjoy the quite beaches...

This was my first visit to Stradbroke Island & I really enjoyed it. The resort is located just up the hill from the magnificent beaches, The Gorge Walk, Surf Club & a little shop precinct. We stayed in one of the rooms with ocean views which was nothing short of spectacular. The 3 bedroom was very comfortable & very neat....
