We stayed for a week in a 3 bedroom top floor sea facing (back of block) apartment. Can't fault location. Easy flat stroll in to town. A beach track close by for access to the sea rather than walking in to town. Off street undercover parking, nice grounds & pool with BBQ area. A few gripes- Not a true 3... More

Our 3 kids have all stayed at Mariner Bay Apartments for Schoolies over the last 5 years, and all had a great time. It's a great place to stay for Schoolies (and probably for a holiday at any other time too)! The owners are lovely and were very accommodating and easy to deal with. They made the kids feel welcome,... More

We had a lovely family holiday. Great facilities and location. Note the walls are very thin and you can hear the apartment next to you when they wake up early with their kids at 6am! Otherwise I would highly recommend
