Property conditions & facilities

8/10 Very good

Henties Bay with a wonderful sea view
We enjoyed our stay at this apartment. It is well located with a great view of the sea. The property was well appointed but out of date and in need of a bit of a refurb.

8/10 Very good

Located right on the beach front with great sea views and gardens. Has a pool/spa and sauna but did not use these facilities. Rooms spacious but lack air conditioning. Don’t forget to spray your rooms as we many mosquito bites having left the windows open at night. Arrived very early for check in as we wanted to watch the World Cup Rogby final. We’re shown to our room by a workman. Reception was advertised to be open from 3pm but remained closed all day Saturday and Sunday. Therefore given no orientation to property. No tea/coffee/milk provided. Close to local shops and restaurants

6/10 Good

Nothing to rave about
Unfortunately reception closes at 4 so we were not able to use any of the amenities in the complex. The apartment was basic, had some incredibly dangerous stairs, and all the windows were open so the place was freezing.

Great costal location
Super & spacious apartment right on the beach. Very well equipped for self catering, good balcony with bbq as well. Short walk/drive to Henties centre, although v quite at this time of year - perfect for fishing!

Nice hotel condo close to the beach
Great ocean views from the kitchen and patio. You can hear the waves below. A few bugs but nothing too distressing.

Beach view and relax
Stayed for two nights. Walked on the beach and enjoy the school of dolphin behind the breaking waves. We had lovely dinners at reasonable prices in interesting restaurants. We enjoyed the friendliness of the residents of Henties bay.

A spacious appartment
This was a spacious well appointed apartment. It could have done with some heating and a clothes washing machine.
