The complex is quiet even though there were many families staying on that long weekend. You feel secluded but it's only a short drive to restaurants and a short walk to seafood outlets. Good stay if you plan to get on a whale watching cruise.

The views of the marina were beautiful, sitting on the balcony at night was beautiful, the unit was large and comfortable and had everything needed for an enjoyable holiday. The location was great, only minutes from restaurants and the Boat Club.

This place is fantastic for young family. Two pools are great, and walking out from ground floor apartment onto grass is the best with young children. Location is awesome. Short stroll along beach up to pier or shops.

Good spot for the family get together. Pity about the lack of internet. Asked for a ground floor unit but didn't get it so that was a bit disappointing as this would be the better location in the complex as it opens onto the grass and the beach and would have been a better spot for the children.

We stayed in studio apartment 176B and the noise from the air conditioner for apartment 176A was unacceptable as there was no solid wall to block the noise coming straight into our studio apartment. Even with the doors closed the noise was far too loud and you cannot be locked in like that. If the people staying in that unit...

The keys were an absolute headache. Studio doors way too many, a great back door view. Car ports too narrow. great amenities in our rooms loved having washer and drier. Room 127 is great. We got married at the Boat Club and the gates were a headache for our visitors.

The grounds with kept well the units were in need of a good cleanup the runs of the sliding doors were a terrible , I really think that the units should be aired before people arrive as they know you are coming.

Great location, friendly & helpful staff. Rooms were comfortable. We had a great kitchen with all that we needed & fairly new appliances except washing machine & dryer(old but still useable). Lots of space in lounge & dining area.
