Great location
Great location and excellent spot to watch the migrating whales. Also saw kangaroos. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. No noise from any other apartments. Locating apartment 8 however did take some time as we entered from the street level and not through the carpark and number 8 was not listed on the outside of the apartment block. There are a few cafes within a few minutes walk from the apartment. Most are open until 8pm except on a Sunday night. The bus stop - Gorge Point is also near the shops. Also only a few minutes walk to the North and South Gorge walk. Easy access to Main Beach. Although for swimming Cylinder Beach is much better.
