Sandcastle Apartments Port Macquarie

Reviewed 29 January 2013

We've now stayed twice at Sandcastles in Port Macquarie, and we'll be sure to stay again. We stayed last week, and also last September. The units are fantastic - 3 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 balconies and plenty of living area as well as a fully equiped kitchen. Downstairs there is a lock up double garage with plenty of room for the car as well as bikes, boards or whatever. The position is excellent, and the view over Town Beach is amazing. Town beach is great for kids, so this is an ideal place for a family to stay. Shops are a short walk away. Theres a great restaurant downstairs, and good coffee just a few doors up.
We are a family of 2 adults, 3 kids.
We definitely recommend this place!!

Just returned from staying a week - plenty of room for a family or extended family. The apartment was clean, tidy, modern and close to all amenities.

A little expensive for one week's accommodation - apartment had the basics with not much in the way of extras. Wi Fi was not included and only one TV in main lounge area, no pool/gym etc.

Balconies at the front and rear of the Apartment were large and both with great views - even on lower floors (rear balcony on lower levels would not have the same view).

Linen, Beds and Furnishings of great quality. Apartment is fully air conditioned with your own lift access.

We recently stayed at Sandcastles with our two children. We absolutely loved our week there. Started with a very warm welcome from the manager, with a personal walk around the complex to make sure we knew where everything was... And help to carry our luggage to our unit too! The unit was absolutely huge, very comfortable and set up with everything we could need (we appreciated the little extras that most other places overlook like a good supply of dishwasher tablets). The unit's best feature? Gorgeous beach and ocean views forever... We loved that the large balcony, which looks directly at Town Beach, was sheltered from the wind and very pleasant to sit out on anytime of the day/evening, which often isn't the case on ocean front buildings. The building was quiet, very secure and so handy to Town Beach and the restaurants and cafes in town. A quick beach swim with two kids in tow was easy - cross the road and you're at a beautiful, safe swimming beach. We used to stay at accommodation near Flynns Beach but we're converts now. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: We stayed on an upper floor, towards the middle of the building which was very quiet.

My husband and I have just returned home after spending a week at Sandcastles. It was absolutely amazing. I have been nowhere where you can have a shower while also having an amazing view of the ocean. The apartments are huge. You have a fully appointed kitchen and laundry, a big balcony at the front (over looking the beach) and rear balcony also. You are literally across the road from a patrolled beach and walk out the back door and across the lane to the Bowling Club. You also have secure parking and access. Barb and Danny were brilliant and couldn't do enough for you. We are already planning our next stay and since the apartment can take up to 6 people we are looking to invite some friends

Room Tip: Every room has a balcony overlooking the ocean. Some have an extra little area with another TV which...

My husband and I stayed here a couple of years ago, and now we are fortunate enough to have stayed here again recently with our two children. The former sheridan now Ridges was previously our place of choice, but sandcastles is now the preference all round. Great view, very helpful staff, well appointed and spacious apartments.
Staff go above and beyond- which makes such a difference!

We recently stayed at sandcastle for a week with our three kids and the grandparents. The apartments are huge! There was more than enough room for everyone! When the kids were a bit much for nan and pop, we could move them to the second living area. The view is amazing! My husband is a very keen surfer and he couldnt take his eyes off it! The other advantage was being able to watch him surf from the balcony and lounge room!
