“Very comfortable and excellent location”
Reviewed 25 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Our one bedroom apartment was very spacious and well appointed. Right on William Esplanade, the beach is at your doorstep and there is no shortage of places to eat in the immediate vicinity. Rhonda and Chris were very welcoming and able to provide plenty of advice about local attractions. Would be more than happy to return.

“Good position but lacking character and modern fittings.”
Reviewed 11 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The best thing about Marlin Waters is it's position in the main street, overlooking the ocean.
It is , however, situated behind public toilets and next to the Surf Club- potentially very noisy during peak season and at weekends.
It is clean and tidy but lacks modern appliances and looks tired inside and out - the pool did not inspire us to take a dip !

Thankyou for your review, even in the busy season, our property is in an ideal location with all the balconys overlooking the ocean. There hasn't been an issue regarding noise from any other guests, they all thought the location was great.

“Relaxing”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We stayed at Marlin Waters for 10nights. The apartment was situated on the beach front close to the beach, numerous restaurants and is well serviced by various transport. Rhonda was an excellent host helping us with tour bookings, hire car and points of interest to visit. The apartment was very clean and had everything we needed. The bed/pillows were a little hard but overall we were very happy and would highly recommended Marlin Waters. Thanks Chris and Rhonda we'll be back

“Stayed in a part of this owned by different idenity but run by Marlin waters desk”
Reviewed 28 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Was a magic spot with great views and handy to the beach.The unit was very comfortable and had all we needed.The desk people of Marlin Waters were very helpful as well.However we have found places that offer separate bedrooms eg apartment type to be very expensive in Australia compared to rest of world.We found this was the only place out of 10 we stayed in this trip that charged for wireless
