We have just finished a long weekend celebrating my mum's 70th and the penthouse was just what we needed. The lap pool was a huge hit and the location meant that friends could come and go as they pleased over the weekend.

We stayed for five nights and we enjoyed the apartment (no 3) and it could not have been in a better location very close to the shops ands restaurants. It was great to sit out in the evening on the balcony with a drink and watch the yachts come into Airlie Harbour after a day's racing.
