Huge three bedroom unit was ideal for us and the grandchildren, the pool and jacuzzi were much bigger than expected and were so clean. We really enjoyed our short stay and want to come back again for a week asap. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating which was appreciated as we were on a tight schedule. I consider it a hidden wonder and will be back again 😊
We stayed here for two nights. This house has three apartements in different sizes. We chose the smallest one, since it was only the two of us and only for two nights.
The location is great: A bit out of town in a hill area. It is very quiet here, but also very safe - it's a good neighbourhood. You park the car just out front. And there you'll also find a table and a BBQ-Grill. Great for a nice b'fast or also dinner. You can see the ocean from here....seems further, but it really is just 3 minutes away by foot. So you easily can leave the car here. It's a great beach with lots of Surfers.
The apartment itself is a bit on the older side. The kitchen is quite basic with a microwave/grill/stove combination, but was fully stocked and it had everything we needed. The bathroom is dated, but for two nights it was fine. The living room/bedroom was nice with flatscreen. The bed was comfy...
There were other guests, but it was always nice and quiet, never heard them. On the main floor there is a lovely outside pool and even a jacuzzi! But it was winter and we didn't feel like it (it was ready to jump in though). There's a laundry room too in case you need it.
One night there was a power shortage and all electricity went out. The owners were here in under 30min....luckily it was just a fuse. The owner here are really friendly....very nice guys and very helpful.
So, even though the apartement was not perfect....the location surely is! And the price is more than fair. A very good option to stay....we would stay here again!

by the average review of the one bedroom studio i decided to book into the 2 Bedroom apartment, even tho there was only myself and my partner. glad i went for that choice as the 1 bedder looked pretty average from the outside. The 2br apartment was alright for us. good size kitchen with couch and dining table. the rest of the apartment is quite old but reasonably clean. the pool was really nice and there's a big wooden picnic table outside which is really handy.
We(2 adults plus a 14 year old) stopped here overnight on our way north and stayed in Apartment 3 which is advertised as a honeymooners' one bedroom studio.
Don't be fooled by the enticing photographs on the website-this property has seen better days-gardens are filled with dead weeds(presumably poisoned, but not removed), the pool area is crumbling and in need of repair, we were provided with ragged, bleach-spotted towels, there was no courtyard as advertised- just an open space under the carport totally exposed to the street with no privacy whatsoever and housing a green plastic outdoor setting next to a rusty BBQ (topped with an unemptied butt container). There were bits of rubbish littering corners and the rockery area. Inside was serviceable but in need of a good clean-sills, switches, screen door, bathroom fan all were carrying a fair amount of dirt/dust. The power points in the kitchen area are located above the sink area and the kettle cord has to run across the draining board-not very safe. The bathroom is tiny and there were some interesting touches like the teatowel rack located above the bedroom door. Overall, we were very disappointed in this tired and poorly maintained property. Friendly owner/manager, great views from the pool area and a top location, but definitely no ambience.
Have stayed here many a time - both in the 2 bedder and the 3 bedder and keep coming back.
The location is outstanding - 3 min walk to the beach, 5min walk to the Big Banana. Short drive to Park Beach and a little further to Coffs. Every Taxi knows where to go - just direct them to Annuka Beach Resort and you're straight up the road!
Brilliant large pool and a spa with a beautiful view. Love having own kitchen area to cook own meals - also a big BBQ to enjoy the outdoor area. The 3 bedder is spacious and great for a group of people, whereas the 2 bedder is cosy and nice for a small family or 2 couples.
Owners are brilliant, always lovely and accommodating... it really is like a home away from home!
