Sometimes when you book online when you get there it's nothing like they say but not Captains Cove it was everything and more . From the moment we arrived the girls at reception were so helpful and friendly. Our apartment just gorgeous and really clean something I look for. And mooring our boat out the front was magic hardly used the car. Can't wait to go back!!!

We stayed here for 2 nights in a 3brm unit. Everything was very clean, great shower and bed. Although the wifi is free, it's not very good and drops out too much. Staff very friendly and gave good advice on what to do locally. Close to the shops and restaurants.

Nice accommodation. We stayed in a 3 bedroom unit, which had 2 bathrooms. No ensuite. Master bedroom did have a TV. Unit was very neat and tidy and clean. Staff very nice and engaging.
Split system aircon downstairs but no cooling to upstairs. Blinds may let through a lot of sunlight in summer as they a very light.
Full kitchen including oven, microwave and dishwasher. Great electric BBQ outside. Beds very comfortable . Showers had great pressure, with all towels provided.
Back decking looks over the water and we found it very relaxing to sit there and look at the boats, kayaks and fishing activities. Pool size was a bit on the small side and not overly warm.
The venue also had kayak and bike hire, though we found this a little expensive , bikes being $20 for 2 hours. Great tennis court which was clean and safe. Free Wi fi however unable to use as it kept dropping out and became a waste of time to try and use.
Walk in to the main street of Paynesville takes about 10 minutes and lots of food options and 2 supermarkets. This stay , being Easter, cost $1700 for 5 nights.

The house we got was pretty clean and had a good size. However, they did not have housekeeping everyday. We had to find a way to dispose food stuff as we were cooking in the evenings.
If wifi is important to you, I suggest you get your own wifi from Telstra as the wifi they provide is unreliable.

We had 3 nights at Captains Cove on our drive from Sydney to Melbourne.
Waking up overlooking the water, then having breakfast on the deck in the sunshine, who could ask for more? The apartment was really well furnished and even had a BBQ on the deck. The laundry upstairs came in handy - I even did some ironing in our bedroom,looking out over the water which made it more bearable. The staff on reception were very helpful and pointed out places we could visit and places to eat.
A visit to Raymond Island to see the Koalas was a must as was the boat trip to 90 mile beach where we saw some pelicans.
Just wish we could have stayed longer.

Our family has been coming to Captains Cove for a number of years and it just gets better and better. Its location on the canal with a berth for our yacht right outside our door is perfect. The beds are the most comfortable I have slept in, and the newly revamped fully equipped kitchen in our unit made cooking for family and friends a breeze. My favourite thing is to sit on the decking with a glass in hand watching the lovely sunsets over the canal. The friendly management and staff made it a pleasure to stay there. Free internet with no limits is an added bonus.

Room Tip: The units number 9-12 are quieter during peak holiday weekends/public holidays.

My wife and I stayed in a recently 'renovated' property, however all the rooms were very plain and clinical, they could do with a splash of colour or some pictures. The furniture could do with being freshened up or replaced.They seem to be very popular for Australians and I don't blame them, as they are in a great position over the water which makes them very relaxing.
The staff in reception (Tamara and Tania) were extremely friendly and helpful.
