Right next door to the best restaurant in Trinity Beach. Nice view from balcony. Plenty of room for family of five. Unfortunately, when we arrived only linen for 4 pax, but a quick call to nearby Ray white office and we had problem sorted within 30 mins. Very good service from Ray White. Overall, couldn't fault the unit, location, cleanliness or anything. Very happy. A couple of suggestions (minor things) as a way to improve our stay would have been: 1. legs on the beds instead of wheels, beds kept rolling around, particularly when you are trying to read in bed or watch telly (they kept rolling away from the wall) 2. For a 10 night stay a quick complimentary clean up on day 5 would've been nice. 3. Perhaps a bit more dishwashing liquid, bin liners for a 10 night stay would've been handy we ran out. However, these were minor things and overall a terrific stay. Thank you very much we would highly recommend.

Much bigger than it looked on the pictures. And a great value as well - was the cheapest place we stayed during our entire Australia trip. Trinity Beach is just across the street and you have a great view of the ocean from the unit. Great to have the washer and drying right in the unit and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed. Very clean as well. It's not a place with high-end luxury finishes, but who wants that when you are there for the beach? Matthew, the owner, was very communicative as well. Would definitely recommend.
