GUEST COMMENTS:


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

NEWCASTLE.

aqua studios is rated 4.85 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relaxing Family Getaway This is the third time we have stayed at Aqua now and not the last! It's a perfect space for us to travel with our 10 month old baby as it is immaculately clean, single level, has an enclosed deck and all the comforts for a relaxing holiday. Short walk to Blueys, Boomerang, and the shops/cafes and great off-street parking. The owners provide a very personal and welcoming service, with little touches like the gas fireplace on for us when we arrived at 10pm to make us feel at 'home'. Thanks again Elaine and John, we will be back again soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent situation ! We had a great time in Villa 4 over Easter long weekend. The villa offers everything you need for a great escape from busy Sydney. The shops and cafe are across the road, Bluey's beach is 5 min walk and the bush is not far neither. Pros : villa in pristine conditions, 2 bedrooms, secured for babies, minutes to beach, close to shops. Cons : bathroom in villa 4 is not high quality standard,deck is opened to the street so you have the noise made by cars and electric bbq.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A perfect studio in an excellent location Cant reccommend these studios highly enough- the studio was perfect and has everything we needed. They are in immaculate condition and were perfectly appointed. We were in villa 3 and although its a group of 4 studios they feel incredibly private. Elaine (the owner) was wonderful to deal with- we will 100% be back! Thank you for making our break so lovely!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hi Elaine and John,We just wanted to say a BIG thank you for the lovely stay we had at number 2 Aqua Studios. Everything was so nicely presented, clean, and well equipped. The little touches and luxuries that were added just made our weekend so enjoyable. The unit was a great size and location. Our dog especially loved the shady courtyard and could enjoy easy walks with us to the beach and cafe. We also really appreciate the late checkout, it was such an amazing day we didn't want to leave so those extra hours were like gold!Thanks again, and we will definitely be returning.Kind regards,Katarina and Greg
