Quite a spacious apartment. Has a good living room, excellent provisions of washer- dryer, kitchen. But absolutely inadequate service - the office is closed at 6pm. No semblance of any service or security from 6pm to 8am.
Not a convenient location. You need to walk for about 10 minutes to get to any decent restaurant or to the heart of the seaside experience.
If you have a car, this is an ok place to stay with the family, particularly for a week or longer.
If not, you may be better off renting a similar apartment closer to the esplanade.

I stayed with 5 friends in a 2 bedroom townhouse. The apartment was spacious and clean. Easy walk to the CBD, esplanade and shops. The pool was great on a sunny day. Linda and Kevin were so helpful with tour and local information. Great place to stay

We stayed here three nights on the first floor. The unit was clean, well equipped and very spacious and the combination of fans and a/c was very welcome during the warm weather. The managers, especially Linda, were extremely helpful with advice on local activities, attractions, restaurants etc. I know it is only a little thing, but the sachet of washing powder was most useful. The pool is small, but was clean and usually we were the only couple using it.

Room Tip: As there is no lift, and if you find walking up stairs a problem, ask for a unit on the first floor...

We were a group of 11, and occupied 2 lovely, clean and spacious apartments. Good location with plenty of parking. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. My mom found climbing the stairs to the 3 storey apt a bit strenuous though. Good value for money.

Always glad to hear people enjoyed themselves! Not sure about the 3 flights of stairs? The most is 2 levels, maybe the 3 is including the internal stairs in a Townhouse, I bet mum was glad to have some helping hands as large groups can be a lot of work for mums!
