Great place to stay

The unit accommodated four adults and two children comfortably. Ocean view from the very comfy couches in the living room. Close to the waterfront, shops and restaurants. Well stocked kitchen. Really enjoyed our stay.

Starfish Lodge

There was a very off putting smell in the downstairs part of the accommodation. There were odd smells throughout, but my assumption is that the downstairs portion of the accommodation suffered from dampness issues. We are lucky there were only two of us staying and we did not have more guests that were required to use or sleep in the downstairs area.

Great location and PET FRIENDLY!

The townhouse has a great layout for 2 couples as there are queen sized beds upstairs and downstairs with their own bathrooms.
The kitchen is modern and the backyard is dog proof, so you can leave your furry friends there and walk down for a swim.
Shoal Bay is one of my favourite beaches in all of Australia and we were only a 4 minute walk to the sand.
You're also within easy walking distance of restaurants and the excellent Game Fishing Club for dinner.
Highly recommended.

Nice Place in A Great Location

We came with three Kids and a dog for our annual Shoal Bay holidays - have stayed in many places, but when we bring the dog it's good to have a place with a garden. She is an outdoor dog, so it was just big enough to sit and play with her, with covered space to keep her dry if it rains.
We liked the layout with the master bedroom upstairs and room for the teen kids downstairs - nice to have some glimpses of the water and beaches on the horizon - the overall layout was good with high ceilings and an open plan kitchen.
The remote for the TV was missing the battery cover (not unusual) but it also didn't seem to change to HDMI for using the DVD player - we were able to change it on the back of the TV. There were an assortment of dishes and glasses for cooking and dining in - some of them were a bit cracked and worn so could probably se some new salad bowls, etc.
Overall, the place is well presented and a good size for a family with a few kids.
We had the linen service and stayed for 10 days, would book again.

Cleanliness lets it down

Great location.
Layout of apartment was good as was bed configuration.
Cleanliness of apartment on arrival was a huge let down. Bins had food on lids, spills on floor, shower/ bath had mould, kitchen draws had a lot of food crumbs in them & the between couch cushions was a lot of rubbish. There was also no batteries in any tv or aircon remotes- we had to go & buy some.
