Ideal for familes or 2 x couples with extras to just get away and relax. Batemans Bay and surrounds has so much to offer and this apartment makes an ideas base for exploring the wonderful south coast. An added bonus is the very obliging owners who seriously go out of their way to ensure you are completely satisfied and you look forward to returning.

It was clean, comfortable, warn in cooler days and had everything one would need for a very restful holiday. It's location was close to the town centre and walking distance to some restaurants.. No complaints about anything. Would recommend for couples.
