Dear Elaine and John

I would like to express my gratitude for the short notice accommodation and late checkout you provided to myself and my partner it was truly appreciated.

I had the pleasure of Staying at your Aqua studios (Villa 2) at Blueys beach in July 2013.

How Beautiful and tranquil to be greeted by the ZEN like garden entrance with water feature and timber boxed seating ( just what I needed to sit ,reflect and de Stress)

The Villa was presented beautifully and welcoming with everything provided that you could possibly want & need to make our stay easy and enjoyable .( even in house DVD selection) which was brilliant and convenient not to have to go anywhere when we arrived as it was late.

The lovely ambiance of the simulated electric log heating created an amazing atmosphere with a warm glow to sit by in the evening with a glass of Red.

It was all the little touches that made the weekend feel like I was at a spa retreat?. I especially enjoyed the complementary use of Natio Shower Gel and Natio Hand wash that was provided. ( just pampering)

I would highly recommend Aqua Studios( Villa 2 ) for a relaxing and romantic getaway place to stay as it is amazing! located in the perfect setting with the Village shop close by and Beach less than a 5minute walk away.

Many thanks Mary & Jason

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So easy We had a lovely weekend at Blueys Beach, aqua studios were very neat and clean. Great position, walk across to the shops/cafes and easy walk to Blueys or boomerang beach. Very reasonable pricing. We would absolutely come back. Love the whole area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Modern studio and late checkout The property is well maintained and modern. We had villa 1 which was great for our getaway and had off street parking next to it. There was some noise from local cars driving by, school buses, garbage trucks on Monday/Tuesday but didn't worry us too much as we were up for great coffee down the road. The bathroom drain had a strange smell which we just covered with the bath floor matt. Studio has two TVs one in the kitchen and bedroom. There's no usb connection so bring a hdmi cable if you want to watch movies off your hd. The fans in the studio are fantastic for hot days and very quiet. The location is great for surfing at blueys beach and outdoor shower makes keeping the studio free of sand easy. Kitchen has all the basics for a quick meal and dishwasher which was great. We got late checkout which was wonderful to end our stay. Would recommend the villas to my friends. Thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and convenient This apartment had everything we needed for a mid-week break. Beds, couches etc all perfect, and we loved the secluded outdoor shower. The outdoor area has no view, but hey! who needs to sit around there. Beach just round the corner, excellent cafe and bottle shop right across the road. Bonus treat: the selection of DVDs was way better than usual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Perfect in every way. Aqua Studios was comfortable, modern, well located and private. Everything you could need for a relaxing beach holiday. Being able to bring our four-legged family member was a bonus.
