I have never been to Dunnsborough before so when I turned up here I was immediately impressed. It is like home from home except these homes are like Swiss Chalets and are extremely well furnished. The gardens are well manicured and you are in walking distance of the beach. There is a tennis court and a small playground for the kids. It certainly has a good vibe to it.
A couple of things on the downside is that it is 3km outside the town centre. Now 3km isn't much in the grand scheme of things but I would have preferred a place where I could walk into town, pick up some shopping or go to a restaurant or pub in the evening. My sister made the mistake of walking into town and by the time she got there it was already dark and the road back to the appartment was not lit. So be aware if you want to go places you will have to drive.
Another thing was office hours. I know we visited out of season but the office shuts at 4 during the week. I don't know if there is a person on site all the time but in the information pack it tells you all about the wineries but not the nearest supermarket or chemist or doctor to go to in an emergency. There was no one at reception when we left our keys at 9.30 even though the office opens at 9. It's a shame because we wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay. That was despite the blackout the previous evening no doubt due to the weather - it would have been nice if someone had come round to check if we were alright.
I now know what to expect and I would stay here again. However I would also look at places closer to the town centre so I could get to know Dunsborough better and go out in the evening.
