Had a fantastic time! Room had seaview just as promised. Apartment was fully furnished with all appliances. TV in both lounge and bedroom (even had a settee!) and laundry in room....most comfortable bed I've had in Australia do far! As a single lady travelling alone I couldn't have asked for more from Glenn and Annette who run the place! Really welcoming, friendly down to earth people who really helped me out! My trip was cancelled because of the weather but they found me another and were so accommodating because my bus wasn't going til late!!! Would come back here... Thanks guys!! :D

We stayed at this property for two nights. We booked at Booking.com and had requested a top floor room. When we arrived we had been given a second floor room, when I requested the top floor I was advised that it would cost more than the booked price. I agreed to pay, and was told they were fully booked but she would see what she could do. ( interestingly the vacancy sign was lit for the duration of our stay...). She said she would give us a "really nice room" not too close to the pool. When we got to our room we were directly above the pool, what an insult! Didn't think too much of the management after that. The place is reasonably quiet, but there are signs posted everywhere, to do...don't do... The apartment is fairly spacious and well equipped. The furnishings are dated, but the bed was comfortable. The parking is covered and secure. The wifi worked. We appreciated having the washer and dryer in the room. The view is okay, the beach across the road. There are not many restaurants nearby.

Room Tip: Not sure if a request would do any good after our experience.

We had a 1 bedroom on the top floor with a view of the water. Very quiet complex, comfortable bed and furniture, very clean, fully equipped apartment, with very friendly and helpful hosts. This was our 3rd stay over the last 5 years, and the property is a very good choice for easy access to the beach and the beach paths across the road. Bike rentals are available for a very good price, and there are 16 km. of bike paths to enjoy. The hosts will organize tours around town or to Fraser Is. if required, and there is a small pool, free underground parking, and an affordable Indian restaurant on site. 2 days free WIFI is provided, and there are many restaurants to chose from and a Woolworths for self catering all within a short driving distance. The property is centrally located along the long Esplanade, towards the quieter end.

Room Tip: Top floor gives you the best beach view through the trees.

My mum and I stayed in a level 1 apartment for 6 nights - fabulous - well appointed, comfortable and perfect. Friendly staff who couldn't be more accommodating - Lisa, Brad and Renata. A shame to read a couple of whinging reviews from people who would obviously not be happy where ever they stayed. Great pool, wonderful Indian restaurant on site, tennis court - everyone's interests catered for. Helpful advice for a brilliant 4WD tour of Fraser Island. A friend of ours stayed in an apartment on the second floor and said the staff were great and thanks to all.

Thanks again and see you soon.
