Even though this apartments was out of town there was a positive of being away from "cruise ship" days, when the town prices are converted to $AUD plus!
The apartment was very private and no annoyances of downtown and you get to talk with the local people! Also very secure as it is a gated community with security guards after dark, that apreciate a warm cuppa on thier rounds, if you are sitting outside.
The owner also owns the closest island resort to town and will organize a discount on meals and drinks if you visit. more
