    The rooms were a good size with kitchenette and lounge which could be rearranged to your liking! Decent sized private terrace for dining/reading plus the extensive BBQ area had nice dining tables and comfortable lounge area under cover. Nothing was too much trouble for Clive the manager who was always cheerful and full of good advice. Pool in lovely treed area. Very peaceful and just across the road from the beach.

    The unit we had which was unit 7 is modern in design and has a small view of the ocean. A very functional design and a good size kitchen. The complex has a nice pool and spa pool area. The owners were friendly and helpful. They sell beer and wine at a reasonable price & have a good selection. Very helpful in arranging shuttles etc,

    Every thing was pretty good. Only a personal thing and you can't please everyone but we found the bed very hard,

    Good, quiet location, with under cover parking.

    The couch was positioned at a right angle to a very small TV and the couch was uncomfortable. The bathroom was adequate, however despite being a good size, the shower head was loose and needed replacing. The kitchen was not well equipped with utensils, despite being self catering. Limited tea and coffee sachets for our three night stay. The beach towels also needed replacing.

    The trees around the accommodation and pool gave a beautiful outlook. Sound of the waves from our room. Friendly staff and other guests. Pool and other facilities were good. Close to the action but feels tucked away.

    Price was a bit higher than i expected (though it was high season). Our room was a bit small for us as we have a baby and the one bedroom apartment was not large enough for us.

    Everything was as had been recommended to us by a friend or even better! Enjoyed our stay very much,

    But to be very picky ..... Found the placing of the sitting area a bit awkward, television at wrong angel to the sofa. Free WiFi that seemed to be readily available elsewhere in Palm Cove would have been great.

    Location next best thing to a beach front property. Kitchenette BBQ decking area fabulous. One of the only heated pools in FNQ. Would recommend to anyone.

    TV in wrong position - to 'left' of couch instead of in front, which made it very uncomfortable and difficult if you wanted to watch TV. Would have liked more sunshine around pool area - very shaded, which is probably perfect for the summer months.

    I loved our room with the spa and the balcony was fantastic to sit and have breakfast on in the morning.

    I didn't like the huge climb of stairs, two suitcases up the stairs was a struggle, although the manager did help us with one of them. Our room had a spa in it, unfortunately we couldn't use it as there was not enough hot water to even quarter fill it. There were no shampoo or conditioner or body wash, there was one tiny piece of soap. No coffee or sugar, in their defence they were training new staff.
