6/10 Good

Great location, easy parking, good size apartment but just needed a good deep clean. For this time that we are living in with Covid, I feel that cleaning should have been to a higher standard. Light switches, walls and floor I don't believe have been cleaned for a while, there was a sign that read in the kitchen $25 cleaning fee if the dishes are found dirty. Well we washed the dishes before using them and soaked the red wine out of the glasses.

Older style Budget accommodation in great location
Location is excellent and reception was very welcoming and helpful. Property was very good price wise but easy to see why. The property is very old although our kitchen had recently had a makeover & looked new. The cleanliness was ok but we found mouldy chopstix in the top of the dishwasher and there was only 1 toilet roll for 3 people for 5 days & no dishwashing liquid so we ended up just buying our own. The knob for the fan in the 2nd br was broken and there was also no laundry liquid, not even a sachet, we didnt expect a whole container. The laundry trough cupboard was full of old paint tins as well. The room itself was very spacious and definitely suited our needs but I'm not sure we would stay here again. The other thing is the car park spaces are very hard to get in and out off, hence us scraping our car along one of the drainpipes trying to manouver out. So choose your space wisely or park out front deoending on size of your car its tricky.

Close to the beach.
Great location so close to the beach and to town, large apartment with good facilities just a little bit dark in this specific apartment on the ground floor, set back under balconies above. Overall happy with the accomodation.

Absolutely Perfect!
We stayed here for 6 nights (originally had 5 booked but ended up extending) in #12 which is a deluxe 2 bedroom/2 bathroom apartment and we absolutely loved everything about it! The location is PERFECT! Walking distance to everything. Less than 1 minute to the beach in one direction and less than 1 minute to the start of the shopping/eating area in the other. Grocery store a short walk and having a kitchen made it easy do meals. Washing machine and dryer was handy as we traveled with our family. The whole apartment was very clean. The pool was fantastic and there was a bbq by it so was nice to cook while the kids swam. Very quiet location and views were fantastic. Enjoyed having breakfast on the balcony every morning watching the sun come up over the beautiful greenery. Tom checked us in and he was great! Made it all very easy for us. Will definitely stay here again when we return to Pt. Douglas.

We loved the location (so close to the beach and restaurants) cost of accomodation was good and reasonable. Loved the 2 pools, 95% of the time our family had a pool to themselves to enjoy. Rooms were great, clean and comfortable and well presented.
