Excellent property; perfect for a getaway!

5 of 5
Safe, secure, clean, quiet and extremely comfortable property. No hesitation in recommending it to others! Stayed 8 nights here and we were so pleased with this property. Modern, well laid out with plenty of room and all modern amenities, including dishwasher. Great cooking facilities (stovetop, oven, microwave) & all necessary kitchen utensils. In a quiet neighborhood (5 minutes from Airport, but no disturbing airport noise); very close to shops and a short drive to The Strand & Castle Hill. Easy access to Highway. AC & fans in lounge room and all 3 bedrooms. Linen, including towels provided. Comfortable lounge suite, good TV and excellent internet reception. Lovely patio (balcony) to relax in after a big day of taking in the sights. Large, tidy garden. We also had use of the undercover garage with electric door. Property is on the first floor, with easy access via undercover stairs direct from the garage. Owner, Steve, was only a phone call away & always prepared to answer questions and take care of any requests promptly. We had a late flight out of Townsville and Steve was kind enough to give us a late check out at no extra cost. We will definitely stay here again,

Extravagant house with sexy swagger.

5 of 5
Wow, what an amazingly designed and constructed home. From the minute you walk in the security remote controlled gate to the moment you step out the back in the entertainers bbq area. This place does takes living large to a whole new level. Really functional yet sophisticated design and the finishing touched, the gorgeoys tilles and rustic table made from mango tree wood. This house will make you feel like royalty from start to finish. I was sad when my stay came to an end. Any place I stay in now seems to not even be in the same league is this. Right near the beach and the strand, perfect location. The owner Steve was informative, friendly, prompt with responses to my queries and available on the phone at any time should I struggle to operate any of the amazing equiptment the place is decked out with (like the massive smart tv with the Bose sound system) . I highly reccomend this to anyone who wants to have an unforgetable, luxury holiday in Townsville.
