My husband, 2 children (3 & 5), mother in law & I recently stayed at VILLA 1 - CHEZ WILLOW, which is the front villa/town house. Upon arrival we were met with clean and modern decor and the villa is fully equipped with everything to accommodate your stay. We stayed for 10 nights which included a mid stay service. Each bedroom has its own en-suite which is perfect for privacy. When we weren't at Four Mile Beach or out and about (a very short stroll from the premises), we spent most of our time in the alfresco dining area which receives a healthy share of the afternoon sun. We hired a car for our full stay, however this was completely unnecessary due to the fantastic location....I think we used the car a couple of times (it was helpful with young kids). And it was cheaper to hire a car than take the shuttle bus (which we've done before and would not recommend for young children.)
I would highly recommend this place to stay and will be making a booking for next year.
Be prepared for a little bit of noise from passing traffic, however I must say this didn't bother any of us at all. As the town is quiet at night, it shouldn't disturb your sleeping. Well presented, clean, modern premises, you can't go wrong with Villa 1 Chez Willow.
