Great location on Marine Parade. Large modern room with good facilities with jet bath. Good location close to main town and local restaurants (Pacifica was excellent). Off street parking. Did not get the chance to try the bar or restaurant.

Very nice ground floor unit with stylish and comfortable lounge furniture and large TV. Large bathroom with spa and big shower. Staff very helpful with restaurant enquiries and even secured some ice for us as the local dairy had run out. Highly recommended.More
