Martin greeted us and carried our bags to the room. Well located very close to the beach and swimming area. Just a nice walk to the Main Street. Undercover parking was free. Apartment a good size and large enough for four of us. Seating not very comfortable but deck recliners on balcony. Great aircon and fans. Pool big enough but not recommended for couples or romance. This is a lovely family holiday place. Everything was clean and starter packs in the kitchen were great. Overall we had a relaxed holiday that was not too expensive.

Stayed: November 2017, travelled with family

Visited in school holidays. 2 br apartment good size, no mould, airy clean. Kitchen had microwave and stovetop. Well equipped. Coffee maker. Washing machine, dryer in unit. Wonderful verandah with table and chairs and palm and eucalypts. The manager (Martin) was super helpful, carried our suitcase up stairs (no lifts), was available for advice.
Free parking in basement under building. No extra charges for anything (including pool towels).
Pool nice but is wonderful for kids and families, with BBQ facilities and large tables. So if you want a quiet adult swim, don't expect this during school hols. Pool quite warm enough for the smallest skinniest little bodies. (and this was dry season which means usually cold pools. ) I would definitely stay here again (and I have stayed in quite a few places in Pt Douglas).

Room Tip: I think they would all be good rooms. Its all quiet. Though ground floor opening onto pool area would be noisier but fun for kids.

Made use of the BBQ and pool. Weather very warm, and air conditioning was perfect counterbalance for sleeping and resting indoors. Kitchen well appointed with all appliances and equipment we required. Manager very obliging and interacted in a friendly way. Perfect escape from cold weather in Victoria. Bed comfortable, laundry facilities easy to use, bathroom layout worked well.

Our experience with Mowbray was exceptional from the start; Martin went above and beyond to ensure that our stay was enjoyable and comfortable. The location is great, 2min to the beach and 15min to the marina end of Macrossan, the apartment was clean and large and had all of the amenities that you need for your stay, I loved having 2 bathrooms - 1 for me and 1 for hubby - yay. The balcony was very large and we spent most of our time sitting out on it watching the world go by, good pool area which was also well utilised by us. A big thankyou to Martin for giving us an apartment on such short notice after our previous booking cancelled the night before we left; Im very grateful now as I think we got a much better deal; and we loved it so much we are planning on coming back in sept.. hope to see you then Deb and Steve

We enjoyed our weeklong stay here. We had a very spacious 2 bed apt which was perfect. Very large kitchen and balcony, 2 bathroom and even our own laundry with washing machine and dryer - this was a huge advantage. Free undercover reserved parking. The wifi was good too. Loved the pool. Very friendly and helpful staff. Location was perfect very close to the beach, restaurants, shops and Main Street. I would stay here again on our next trip to Pt Douglas
