          A home on the beach”

          It's located right on the beach, with breath-taking views there are only 2 units per floor - cosy & quiet, apartment was clean & well equipped

          It was a wonderful experience. Check in n out was simple and fast. Hosts were great - friendly and approachable. Beach is just a few steps away as apartment is located right on it. Surfer's paradise is a bit of a walk though, young kids may not be able to walk for long. Everything you need is found at surfers. Some other proprties next to us do have slightly more competitive rates.

          Great location, 3 bedroomed apartment”

          Location, location, location.

          The sun, surf & turf were amazing as usual. The hosts, Mike & Karen were gracious & warm. You couldn't ask for more really. The only "blight" was the patchy WiFi service offered which had poor connectivity & frequent connection drops. Otherwise, if you need 3 bedrooms right by the beach, this is an excellent choice. Rooms are serviced once a week, with some general cleaning & towels refreshed. There's an oven, kettle, dishwasher & microwave in the kitchen, ample utensils & crockery. There's a vacuum cleaner, washer, drier & broom in the closet. Generally well maintained, neatly designed with contemporary modern furniture. One attached bathroom for the master bedroom & a common toilet & separate bathroom. Master bedroom and one other that are fitted with Queen sized beds, and a third room with twin beds. Great views, lovely cool sea breeze, easy access to beach. Couldn't ask for more.

          Location, view & spacious rooms

          Thoroughly enjoyed our short weekend stay. Fully equipped apartment for self catering, so was ideal. A bit limited on parking facilities, but not a major issue for us. Location was just far enough from the busy centres, but still comfortably within walking distance and public transport if needed. Will definitely look at staying there again next year.
