Walking into this beautiful 3 bedroom appartment (unit 40) there was definitely a wow factor. The unit lived up to all our expectations. Very spacious, well appointed and with a stunning view of the beach....Loved having our evening meal on the balcony with the wildlife grazing below. Pool, spa and bbq facilities were uncrowded and a pleasure to use.

Family of three adults and three children. Beautiful customer service, nothing was a problem - which we found very unique for the island. Other places we dined at and visited really lacked customer service, maybe they're just sick of tourists. Only stayed for an extended weekend, can't wait to go back for 10 days to really enjoy the quite beaches...

This was my first visit to Stradbroke Island & I really enjoyed it. The resort is located just up the hill from the magnificent beaches, The Gorge Walk, Surf Club & a little shop precinct. We stayed in one of the rooms with ocean views which was nothing short of spectacular. The 3 bedroom was very comfortable & very neat....

This was my first trip to Stradbroke Island. A group of us stayed for the weekend in one of the Garden/National Parkside apartments.

We booked 8 nights over Christmas as part of a family group of 15. Although we were not side by side the resort is set out so none of the apartments are very far away from each other, so for us it was ideal. There was a fairly big difference between each of the apartments we had booked. Our unit...

First impression when I walked through the door: outdated. First of all, there were horrendous yellow curtains throughout the apartment, all of which were extremely dusty. So much that the dust and dirt was visible and looked like they hadn't been washed in years. The fans in our bedroom were COVERED in a thick coat of dust. So much that...
