Enticing? Nice view from the 9th floor balcony. Looking down to the pool:

Lovely place to sit with an evening drink and watch the world go by. Plenty here to watch with the broad water area full of activity.

Apartments are open plan, neat, tidy and, depending on when/ who you book with, they can be good value. Some are under $150 per night, sleep four, without any additional costs.

Fully self contained with laundry and kitchen facilities, all you require is a few groceries- don’t forget the laundry/dishwasher powders! Towels, blankets etc are all provided, however it may pay to bring your own beach towel or cop a $5 charge to use theirs.

Main and second bedrooms share a big bathroom, includes a separate bath. Second bedroom is a little strange with the louvred wall leaving a gap between itself and the ceiling. Maybe not the best for a family with young kids trying to sleep while adults watch tv in the evening. However it does allow for good circulation from the air conditioner.

From here, you are close to all the theme parks, major shopping centres and surfers central. Around 15-20 min drive max to most.

With the hotel down below it can get noisy so be sure to ask for a higher floor. Ninth floor was extremely quiet, very easy to sleep. No traffic, people or neighbourhood noise up here !

Secure locked car park has one space for each apartment, however there is an undercover/outdoor area which is patrolled by security, for any second vehicles.

Make the most of this area, once the cruise terminal goes ahead, the whole look and feel of this area is going to change.
