Awesome property in a Great location!!

5 of 5
This place is awesome! A great place if you are either on business or pleasure in Townsville. It's waking distance to everything the City and Strand has to offer and only 15-20 minutes from the airport. The Magnetic Island ferry terminal is across the road and the Casino is only about a 300 mt walk. The apartment has everything you need just like being at home. And the hosts are super easy to communicate with and willing to help out at any time. Our stay here was so EASY, relaxed and enjoyable. This place is definitely 5 Stars. Thanks again will be back
