Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the ocean view penthouse apartment. Everything we needed was provided and more. Views from the two huge balconies were beautiful and having the outdoor furniture made it comfortable to spend our time outside taking it all in. Bedding was comfortable. Walking distance to the Main Street and beaches made it very convenient too. Only negative was I felt that the appliances could have done with a clean both inside and outside (dish washer, fridge).

Over all a fantastic stay and would definitely stay again.

Fabulous penthouse!!

  • 5 of 5

Were a group of 7 women who have been enjoying annual getaways for the past 30 years. When we walked through the door of Ocean View Penthouse apartment we knew our weekend would be one of the best. The apartment is so spacious and so welcoming. The ocean views are amazing, with very large balconies to sit back and enjoy it all. Furnishings, crockery, glassware and BBQ facilities are all of a high quality and meticulously clean. The location is a 10/10 with beaches, walks, town, restaurants and cafes close by meant our two cars stayed parked all weekend in the garage. We'll definitely be back. Great value too and there's free WiFi too. Ann is so helpful too.
