What Our Guests Say

Renee

We had the most amazing stay here, the home was beautifully set out with a great parents retreat with the most amazing views. The home was sufficiently supplied with all the necessary items we needed, it was quite the home away from home. We had everything we needed within walking distance and even then didn’t feel the need to leave the house as it was quiet literally like being on a resort. Brandi was an amazing host and so helpful and responsive when we had any questions. We will most definitely be back to stay again in the not so distant future. Thanks for a wonderful holiday!

Host was excellent always following up and the place was exceptional, excellent view with lots of privacy. The unit was massive with huge cooking stove, though we did not make use of it as there options of dining out. A must stay for all travellers.

Ron

Brandi is an excellent host. She went above and beyond during our stay. Property was clean and airy. Bed was very comfortable. Amazing panoramic views overlooking the Strand with view taking in Magnetic Island and the Strand. Within walking distance to restaurants and cafes with a broad range of different foods. Definitely will stay here again. The best part is that there are other properties in Brandi’s portfolio so there is something for everyone.

Great apartment, in a great location! Was a lovely spacious and clean apartment which was perfect for our weekend get away. Definitely would stay again! The host was an excellent communicator and great to deal with.

Helen

Apartment 13 is in an excellent location just across the road from the ferry to Magnetic Island and an easy walk to many cafes and restaurants, and even closer to the casino. The apartment is very clean and spacious with extra space on the patio where we spent a lot of our time. It remained quite cool inside the apartment even though the weather was warm. There is air-conditioning but we found we didn't need it much. There is a lovely pool just a few steps away from the patio yet it still felt quite private. Brandi even allowed us to check in early after our flight times were changed which was much appreciated and got our holiday off to a great start. She replied very promptly to all messages. I look forward to staying again.

Helen

Eleanor

Fiona

Great place to stay . 2 swimming pools to choose from and lock up garage . It is an upstairs apartment so not good for elderly or disabilities. Close to Casino and The Strand . To see Townsville properly you need a hire car . Apartment has everything you need including pool towels . Master bedroom ensuite has shower over bath and other bathroom has just a shower etc. great laundry facilities.

Fiona

Sam

Amazing house in a perfect location and great value for money! Easy walk to the shops or beach, all the facilities you could ask for and more, coffee machine and bbq were very much appreciated. The main bedroom was absolutely beautiful, separate from the main part of the house with ensuite and fantastic views, meant I got some me time while away with the whole family. The weather was hot and very humid but we could always find a comfortable space with ample fans and air conditioners and separate sitting areas to give everyone space if they wanted it. The pool was a hit, the kids were in it every day. A huge outdoor deck to have a morning coffee with a view, a family meal or a relaxing drink of a night. Brandi was a great host, easy to communicate with and very responsive, we’d definitely stay again!

Sam

Bronwen

This property was everything and more that we were hoping for on our family holiday. The view is spectacular and the unit was spacious and clean. Fully renovated and far better than the photos showed! We loved every minute of our stay here and we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again in the future. Thanks so much to Brandi for making our stay here so amazing!

Great apartment plenty of room for a family of six. Had everything we needed and so close to everything on the Strand Casino and Ferry terminal.Highly recommend and Brandi is a great host. Will certainly stay again.

Maggie

This is one of three cosy little properties on the block. It has 3 levels - top level kitchen and living room open up to balcony with tree-top views, middle/ground level has master bedroom and another bedroom with queen bed and a reasonable size family bathroom. The master bedroom ensuite was very tiny, it only has a hand-basin. The third bedroom was in the basement which opens up to the pool and garden outside. We had an enjoyable stay as everything we need were only a few minutes drive away.

Maggie

Kathy

This apartment was in a great location on the strand, close to restaurants, shops. The apartment was very homely, clean and modern, with plenty of space. Can’t wait to come back.

Rebecca

Very large 3 bedroom apartment with large outdoor seating space. My 2 parents, 2 small children and my husband and I all stayed in this apartment and never felt on top of each other as it is very spacious. The apartment is ground level and has a large private balcony and access straight to the lovely pool area, which made life very easy with small children. Great location, we walked across the road to the ferry terminal and took a day trip to Magnetic Island. It’s also walking distance to the lap pool, children’s water park, coffee, fish and chips/pizza, casino. Kitchen was very well equipped with quality items. Undercover parking was also great.

Rebecca

Thanks heaps brandy. Such a nice place with an amazing view.  

Nathan

Carmela

Great little unit. Has all you need for a short stay or even a long stay with a fully equipped kitchen. Close to shopping centres and not a long drive from Darwin CBD. Unit was spacious, clean and homely. We really enjoyed our stay there even though we got caught in a 3 day lockdown. That being said if you are stuck in a lockdown would recommend this for accomodation as you can cook your own meals, do your laundry and chill out and watch movies on the TV.  

Carmela

Anetta

Thank you Brandi for letting us stay in your beautiful apartment it was clean, easy check in, great location and most of all the little things that was in the apartment made it feel like home away from home for us so thanks again it was just what my family needed.

Anetta

Anna

The photos don’t do the property justice! We were pleasantly surprised how spacious it was and how much it had to offer in terms of amenities for 5 adults even down to the tea and coffee in the cupboard, which was a nice touch! The location was really central. Brandi was extremely responsive to my messages and the late check out was greatly appreciated. We will definitely be back!

Jo-Mari

Bri

What a fantastic spot! Right on The Strand in the thick of some of what Townsville has to offer. The place was perfect for us. After exploring during the days, we just needed a comfy bed to rest our heads and a hot shower with great food and drink amenities a stone's throw away. We stayed down in Townsville to go four wheel driving, our 4wd is convertible, we took the roof off and left it in the secure lock up car park under the apartments. It was there all day and safe The place was so clean, coffee, tea, milk, sugar, salt pepper, paper towel, Tupperware, all the little things you forget to pack where there for our convenience. Brandi was a fantastic accommodating host and communicator. Thanks for making our little get away fuss free.

Bri

Danelle

Esra

We stayed in Brandi's place for a week. Brandi was an excellent host. She was very accommodating and very quick to respond to any questions. She helped us with check-in and check-out times as well. The house was amazing, decorated beautifully, had an ocean view, especially from the upstairs bedroom balcony. It was very clean and had all of the necessities. The location was fantastic too: The neighborhood was super quiet, beautiful, very close to the beaches and parks. It was 15 min away from restaurants and cafes in the Strand but there was a beautiful walking track through The Kissing Point Walk Board. We enjoyed ourselves a lot in the Splash Bar and pool in The Ville. Highly recommended too. We loved Townsville a lot, and are very grateful to Brandi to make our trip so comfortable for us.
