Wow.. this was such a wonderful surprise. It's such a beautiful little villa. Almost like an apartment with the living area, kitchenette, separate bedroom and bathroom. We had partial waterviews which was great! We wished we had stayed longer. It was so comfortable and wonderfully clean. To top it off the gorgeous lady at the front counter gave us so... More

Stayed here.a couple of nights but could have moved in permanently! Very clean, amazingly comfortable, and a view to die for. Staff are always attentive and ready to give advice and support. Make sure you get to meet 'Jack' the cockatoo who is most entertaining. Seriously, if I ever get back to St Helens, I wouldn't even consider staying if... More

The rooms here were more like apartments, you had a full kitchen, lounge area and a separate room for the bedroom and bathroom. The staff was very friendly offering very good advice about the local area. The only problem is that it is a couple of kms out of ton so does require you to drive around. Having said that... More

Being slightly out of the town and not on the main highway makes this delightful place even more attractive. The apartments are well laid out, well furnished with comfortable beds, lounges and well equipped kitchens with a larger than usual refrigerator/freezer. The balcony provides a wonderful place to sit and enjoy a coffee while taking in the view over beautiful... More

Located just on the southern approach to St Helens we thought this was a very convenient place to stay. Our room was comfortable, clean and well-appointed and we found that help was readily available from our host, with good advice on where to eat and how best to see the area.

I stayed here for 5 nights while on a business trip. Lovely clean and cosy, Management could not have been more helpful. Self- contained so I was able to cook - only tiny complaint - not enough cooking equipment/utensils in the room - but would stay again and recommend

Clean and comfortable with plenty of room. It was nice to be in a 2 bedroom villa after three nights of motel rooms shared by three people. The place had recently been renovated. We utilised the shared laundry and drove into town for oysters. The owner was very friendly and helpful with advice and directions. Thoroughly recommend.

This was the second time we stayed here with several years in between. The motel is basic, but clean and offers all you need for an overnight or a longer stay. The units are self contained and clean. Our unit had a good and FREE WiFi connection. We'd happily come back any time

The man on reception was extremely helpful and provided heaps of information about the area. Our room was spacious, clean, comfortable, quiet and light (not dark like many motel rooms). There was a full kitchen and comfortable two seater couch. The motel overlooks the sea in the distance. We only stayed one night but the motel would be ideal for... More
