My husband and I just returned from a six night holiday and we were so impressed with the comfort and ease of this beach holiday apartment. The location was fantastic with the beach right across the road, a beach cafe very close by and a very nice restaurant and IGA about 10 minutes walk away. Public transport was readily accessible...

We booked this resort from NZ and were impressed with the previous reviews on tripadvisor. When we arrived we were met and asked to pay for the five days we had booked in advance. After checking in we were disappointed with the unit, old 20 inch t v, tired furniture, uncomfortable cane couch, a long walk to the restaurants, in...

Sorry about that, you should have stayed a while to get over your jet-lag and you would have loved it. If restaurants are key to your travel plans some research might be a good idea. We are sorry you found the 3 year old furniture tired. Sounds like buyers remorse, certainly not our fault.

At first sight there's not a lot at Yorkey's Knob but you soon realise that there's a supermarket, bottle shop, take-away, a couple of retaurants and a beach cafe within walking distance. The beach is superb and there's a well flagged lifeguarded area within 5 minutes walk. And there genuinely are patches of rainforest dotted about, kookaburras just across the...

My 17yo daughter and I spent 5 nights at the York apartments escaping the southern winter and were most reluctant to leave.
