Townhouse is the first of 8 in the complex, each with own garage and utility room.
This one is the only one with direct pool access from the private courtyard and balcony overlooking pool area. We spent 10 nights here with our two teenagers and the layout is perfect with main bedroom downstairs and second room (kids) was upstairs. Kids room had double bed so they had to share the space. Not a problem for us but may be for others so consider this before booking. Also a stair barrier is fitted at top of staircase to use if staying with young children or in my case, clumsy teenage children. Bathroom/toilet on both levels however basin in ensuite to main bedroom is half size and washing face without mess was a little tricky. Perfect for basics ie., washing hands, brushing teeth etc. A few things needed addressing whilst our stay here including, initial cleanliness, leaking warm fridges, and broken washing machine, however, communication with the owner Jeff was quick and problems rectified without a problem.
* A quick note on the fridges. There are two bar size fridges in this property, one in the kitchen and one in the utility room in the carport/garage. If you plan to do most of your cooking or buy lots of food during your stay (ie. fresh fruit, veges and dairies), then storage may be a problem. We used and bought often to remedy this and kept most food items in the house fridge. Drinks, icypoles were kept in the outside fridge.
Awesome verandas both sides of upstairs level with drying racks for wet clothes, as well as ample seating and tables for balmy tropical dinners and brekkies. It's perfect!
Communal pool shared amongst all residents though only one other local joined us for the occasional dip throughout our stay.
Few minutes walk to Four Mile Beach, surf club bistro and five minutes walk to main shopping strip with abundant bistros, cafes and restaurants.
Overall a great and comfortable affordable, spacious townhouse for four people with all the amenities required, perfect location, without the crowds of a resort and expensive price tag. Will definitely stay again :)
Looking for a relaxing Christmas after a hard year, and not wanting to cruise or fly overseas we searched for something special at the Sea Temple (a property we know well). We must have picked the absolutely best apartment in the resort in this case.. On arrival from CNS, all tired and hot, we swung open the front door to be greeted with the air conditioning already on, the fans on, and a view straight out to the pool! Everything was immaculate and thoughtfully presented - soap and toiletries in the bathrooms, tea and coffee, (even some milk) And, gentle readers, all quality items as well! We could step straight into the pool, and the position of the apartment was perfect, far away enough from the main pool area so no noise at all, private and delightful. Oh yes, watch for those funny "magpie geese" who are around the pool and delight in waking up the resort around 0415! Just added to the ambiance, we miss them already! . Whatever you do, don't go past this apartment in your search, you are in for a wonderful experience here. . ps thanks also to Sharon, who maintains the cleaning and overall presentation for the owner, you had us at "hello" when we opened that door Sharon!
