We stayed here for a week in late January 2013.
This was not our original choice of accomodation on Bribie island, however we had to vacate the original booked accomodation due to a number of issues (that we will report on separately).
From the outset the staff at the Gums could not have been more helpful when we required immediate accomodation, being friendly, sympathetic & helpful.
We had a unit towards the front of what is a gated development on the first floor & overlooking Pumistone passage. The units are clean & well appointed & we believe all individually decorated to the owners tastes. Ours had Balcony, lounge, kitchen, 2 bedrooms (1 with en-suite) & bathroom/utility room. There was also a separate garage provided for use by this unit. Everything you would need was included in the apartment & security appeared good.
The pool is a lagoon style one and the only slight downside was the lack of seating or loungers around this. There is also a Tennis court on site & the grounds are nicely maintained.
Its a short stroll across to a narrow beach from which you can walk for miles, but you would need transport to reach the primary shops on Bribie or to travel further afield.
All in all, The Gums Anchorage is recommended if staying on Bribie, we would definately use again, and the Management staff are excellent.
