Appartment with ocean view

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 9, 2005

Somebody have put a great effort in making this place a nice holiday resort. And it is, with three buildings, one with appartments and two with rooms, a big pool, that is several connected ones, where you can actually swim, different activities to choose from and a short walk to the beach. The area between the buildings is quite nice. Everything was clean and tidy, and our appartment was spacious with a nice view. So why do I give them only "satisfied"? Because we did not feel at home there. There was no atmosphere, nobody talked to us, we felt like aliens. And how on earth could we utilize the kitchen when the only store at the site had almost no cooking ingredients? We did go to Yeppoon with the hotel shuttle one day to get supplies, but again, they charge extra for the transport. But I suppose, if you are a whole family going on vacation by car, bringing your own supplies, it would be ideal.

I wonder why they have camels there? I know camels were used for transportation in older times, but I thought that was just in the middle areas of Australia, like to and from Alice Springs? Maybe it is like the norwegian jippo of creating lap villages hundreds and thousands of kilometers away from where the laps normally live (well, a lot of them live in Oslo, but in ordinary houses, not in tents ;-)? Or were camels used for transportation in this area as well?

They have got online booking now where you can find a good bargain, we made our deal with the travel agent in Roma Street Station in Brisbane. Up to 5 people can stay in an appartment like this one, which offcourse brings the price per person down, since you pay for the room / appartment and not per person.

Unique Quality: The ocean view through the palms.

Directions: It is far outside Rockhampton, and quite a bit away from Yeppoon too. But if you have a reservation they will pick you up at the railway station or the airport. NB! They charge you extra for this service!
