Fabulous views, well equipped, lovely furnishing.

We loved staying in this unit. Fabulous views, well equipped, lovely furnishing. It suited us perfectly. On arrival we would have appreciated bit more detail about where to go to park our car. We arrived in the evening and drove round quite a bit before someone told us we had to go down the lane beside the Ramada Hotel to the car park. The steel drainer in the kitchen had dirt and rust in some of the joins and needs to be replaced. Overall this is a great place to stay and we look forward to returning to this unit again.

Thank you for the feedback and we are glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. On your pre arrival email there was a link titled 'Directions - Unit 808 Barrington,' which explains where the unit is located and where to park. The steel drainer will also be replaced in the very near future. We do hope to see you back again!

Great apartment, fantastic view

We recently stayed at this apartment at Shoal Bay. One never quite knows what to expect, but the apartment was fantastic, great views and everything within walking distance, eg coffee shops, restaurants and a fantastic ladies boutique. Loved it!!!

Beautiful view

As my parents are visiting from the UK I wanted to bring them somewhere with an amazing view where they could relax. This apartment did not disappoint. We loved our stay here and I would definitely recommend it. The shoal bay country club was right next door and was really convenient for dinner and drinks.

Please rest assured we have addressed this with the team to ensure we improve on these areas.

Expensive

Great location and lovely apartment. Expensive for what you get. We stayed, family of four and they didn’t provide any tea or coffee, only two rolls of toilet paper and you have to make your own beds and strip the bed before departure. They do provide sheets however for $300+ per night I would at least have thought they’d provide beds already made up and a little more toilet paper. It’s these little things that make a big difference.

Air Con didn't work and Rental Company ignoring calls and emails

The unit was not very clean, but the worst thing was that the advertised air conditioning did not work. I think the owners knew it didn't work as there were two cheap fans in the unit but these didn't help, plus, you can't charge for something that isn't there. Additionally there was black mould in the wardrobe of the second bedroom. The unit just hasn't been maintained and the managing company, Winning Holidays at Nelson Bay, are completely unresponsive.

Great Position and View

We gave this property 4 stars and would have given it 5 stars except for the state of cleanliness which we brought to the attention of the both property manager and the owner. This aspect is easily fixed so overall we would have no hesitation in recommending the property.

Great location and view!

Fantastic location, close to beach and shops, super quick lift. Areas for improvement - hallways weren't clean, no hand / body wash, shampoo / conditioner provided and this wasn't mentioned in the booking details. Also, noise from adjoining buildings' air conditioning units is quite loud through the night.

A short stay

Overall we g=had a good stay. Good apartment and great views. Didn't realise that basic toiletries were not provided and the pillows on the bed lacked substance and badly need replacing
