Business traveller, Travelled with partner
Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
The unit had lots of character and a fabulous deck and outdoor garden area with a fire pit. Unfortunately it was too cold to use it. The property was spacious with separate living/ dining / kitchen area and bedroom. It had a loft bed and separate bathroom that was very small but had a bath. It had a kitchen with stove and fridge.

5/5 Excellent

Bali inspired retreat
These units a so special! Im hesitating to tell everyone how good they are so I can always book. Although the kitchen is more a kitchenette size, (not much bench space) and there is no washing machine or dryer...the back area is stunning and the furniture ties together the "look". The beds are super comfortable, and my 11yr old and 6 yr old loved sleeping in the loft. We book swallowtail for 4 nights. Our fav was to walk the dog to the beach and back so close and refreshing. The only feedback would be to replace the huge refrigerator with a smaller size to fit a washing machine - the public laundry is a rip off in Umina and the staff not the friendliest. I would highly recommend this property for a quick get away!
