Thank you Melinda so much for your lovely review! Unfortunately so many buildings like ours, were built before the bigger cars such as iMax's and 4WD's were around. Our visitors car park has now been re-opened so hopefully that will alleviate the parking issue in the future. We look forward to welcoming you back to Focus! More

Great apartment really good view. Lots of bench space in the kitchen. Close to all amenities. We saw whales, FA18 & a airforce transport plane all from our balcony. Because the apartment has multiple balconies you can always find a breeze.

Thank you Veronica for your lovely review. The whales have been quite spectacular this winter and we look forward to seeing them again soon as they start heading back South. We love the breeze you get from at least one of the balconies! We look forward to welcoming you back soon! More

Service was great - very obliging, friendly and professional (a big thankyou to Wendy). Upgraded from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 3 bedroom. Breath-taking views from all 5 balconies. Really good entertainment facilities - bbq areas, tennis, Ping-Pong, pools, spa etc. Fantastic location - stroll to all amenities, walk straight across the road to the beach.
