Property conditions & facilities

5/5 Excellent

Quiet apartment and good value
We really enjoyed Studio Fran. We were there for five nights with our kayaks so it is a perfect place for that. You leave the kayaks under the deck and just pull them out on to the water. The outdoor deck has a nice aspect. Great bed and well stocked kitchen. The bathroom was quite dated but everything was very clean. It is extremely quiet at the end of a cul de sac. We took our own supplies but the Settlement City shopping centre is very close. Our only issue was how dark it is inside so that you need the lights on but we were out a lot during the day so not a big deal. It can be difficult to find a holiday rental place just for two and priced accordingly so this was a good find.

Beautiful studio apartment right on the quiet canals of Port Macquarie. A perfect getaway for relaxing- just sit on the back deck and take in the scenery, or try your luck at fishing off the jetty. Dog friendly for dogs that love a swim! The apartment was clean and all necessities provided. Kitchen was well stocked with appliances and utensils. Unfortunately there were likely bed bugs which left us covered in itchy bites, but we still enjoyed our stay and hopefully can make it back some day!
