What a sight to wake up to every morning with views of the main beach. Only a short stroll to shops, park, restaurants, you name it. The apartment is well maintained, modern and clean facilities. Estelle and Rod were quick to answer any enquiries. You made our rare getaway a breeze and truly unforgettable. Thank you, Parklea will be our first choice when we visit the Entrance again.
