Owner's reply:
I'm sorry that you feel you need to write such a false review. We have many happy guests stay at our apartments and we have a 9.5 review score on Booking.com The apartments are exactly as pictured in our advertising and the ammenties downstairs are perfect for family holidays. There is Austar and WiFi available for our guests, comfortable lounge and beds, huge spacious apartment and lovely sea views! As well as plenty of childrens beach toys, fishing gear and eskies. There are 2 phone numbers to contact (call or text) incase of any issues as well as email. The apartments are regularly cleaned 2-3 times a week, after each departure and maintenance carried out as required. This is a false and defamatory review which does not correctly represent our lovely and enjoyable apartments. Unfortunately there will always be somebody negative that feels the need to write a false review.
