“Its nice...but not as nice as I thought it would be”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2012

Its a lovely view from the front across the bay to Albany - at a still sunrise its just spectacular.

It worth bearing in mind that you aren't walking distance to the centre of town here. You are instead on the road to the scenic national park at the end of Frenchmans Bay Road.

The furnishings are bright and modern but felt a bit cheap. We enjoyed ourselves, but for the price I think I was expecting a little more.

Stayed March 2012, travelled with family

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2011

Location is quite good, nice view from the back of the unit and the gardens are nice. But the villa was not well maintained and the bathroom needs a good scrub. There are some repairs that need to be done and it doesn't seem well looked after. We paid $220 per night on the internet, which we had thought was ok based on internet photos, but for that money, especially in Albany where theres loads of cheap accommodation, we expected alot more for our money and would not choose to stay there again at that price.
