The Bellovista is one of the nicest apartments we have ever stayed in. The apartment was very well presented with two large bedrooms, a pristine well equiped kitchen, a large bathroom and a very spacious living area with dining table, lounge and large screen TV with cable and DVD player. The views over the beach and ocean are spectacular and... More

We stayed two nights as two American retired couples traveling together and shared a two bedroom suite. Leslie could not have been a more friendly and helpful host.

Leslie even provided beach towels for our swim in the Tasman Sea which was really exciting and right on front of our accommodations.... More

“The one bedroom apartment is the best, with an amazing view, specially for couples. The two bedroom apartment is very good too, if you have kids, very comfortable.”
