We are both in our 60's and enjoyed our three night midweek break in a clean and well maintained two bedroom apartment. The open plan kitchen was very well equipped but the only items that we used was the electric kettle, wine glasses and the small coffee mugs. I would have liked to be able to use either of the supplied carving or slicing knives but they were so blunt that they would not even cut through oranges or lemons. Fortunately I had a pen knife in the car which was parked in the reserved undercover car park. Another other complaint we had was that although the lounge suite seamed new, it was the most uncomfortable thing to sit on. Fortunately there was a second TV in the master bedroom. The only other problem with the unit was that although both of the bathrooms had air vents in a ceilings, there were no fans, that turned on with the lights, so the mirrors steamed up very quickly. The good points were the fact that the units are only a five minute walk from the shops and all eating places and the staff were very good at their job. I was very pleased that they up-sold us to a unit that overlooked the pool and Nelson Bay as some of the units have brick walls as an outlook. Make sure, if the stay at these units, that you do not stay in any of the units which are near the main gate which is closed between 7pm and 6am for safety reasons, so anyone wanting to enter or leave has to use their "swipe" card and the gate makes quite a racket..
