We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Laura's place. Accessing the unit was super easy and Laura was very reachable by phone and text during our two night stay as we had one question for her.
The apartment has an amazing location 1 block from the beach that doesn't dissapoint. Even better, however, is that right there is a surf club bar/restaurant on the sand overlooking the beach! Who knew that would be so hard to find in Aus! We had a great time watching new years fireworks from the second story.
As for the apartment, the outside building is older, the inside has super modern construction and style that impresses the in-laws. It has super secure parking and access. When not on the beach we especially loved the outdoor queensize lounge bed on the large terrace. It was delightful and under advertised as it overlooks the pool from the shade. The AC worked great and was an absolute necessity. Sensitive sleepers should note the AC is in the main room but it cools the whole unit. The bedrooms also have fans which we found to work just fine by themselves.
For occasional surfers: there are three breaks south of the unit. (Locals check cameras at willy weather, we cross referenced at Magic Seaweed for spots). We didnt bring boards so we rented for 24hrs at go ride a wave. Its a good bit north but it was the only rental shop open over the New Years holidays. We had a great early morning surf at a point break.
