We Absolutely LOVED this place!!! Stayed at Anna Bay for a girls' weekend away from Sydney. It is as clean, fresh & spacious as in the pictures. The pool is really amazing - it has a 180 degree view of the valley & trees below & the two beaches to either side. There is a nice warm spa with the same view. It is amazing floating there at night, with all the lights off except the cool blue glow of the pool lights & the sparkling stars - very tranquil. There is a nice deck for sunbathing that has sunshine all day long, and for couples there is actually a private spa tub on the private apartment deck (we didn't use this but it is outside & looks cosy!). Otherwise, the bedrooms & living area were clean & spacious, kitchen has all the necessary appliances. We didn't even eat out once - it was too easy to cook whilst having the most amazing view outside through the glass panelled doors. There is one parking spot but it is easy to fit 2 cars there, although it's a tight curve into the driveway (there is more on-street parking, easy to get to). The surrounding areas are incredible - we went 4WD driving on the 4WD track just out of Anna bay - amazing at sunset! The beach is close by - good for surfing, swimming, kite surfing etc. There is also some great rock-climbing at Anna Bay too. Or just kick back & enjoy a BBQ with a view on the private deck. Really, this was an amazing place to stay - not just because it's a beautiful part of the world but the apartment itself is luxurious without being over the top & if you don't even leave the house you will have an amazing time. Gae & Kim were very accessible, understanding & helpful - we went at the time of the awful bushfires & they were great in giving advice on how to get there to avoid any dangers etc etc. The drive was only 2.5 hours from the centre of Sydney, so not bad at all.

We will definitely be back now that we have discovered this amazing little secret paradise!!! Couldn't get enough - can't wait to do it again soon. Thanks for a great weekend!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A sensational stay! Escape to utopia! Spectacular uninterrupted views - beaches, bays and mountains all in one sweep! Be mesmerised from the deck, the private al fresco spa, the living room or whilst sipping coffee from bed in the morning! Everything you need is here, including BBQ on the dec, but if you do choose to leave the secluded, extremely well-appointed apartment, a 5 minute walk will have you on the beach. Don't worry about the walk back as the pool and spa awaits you before making the final 6 steps, back to the views! The beachside cafe is great after a long morning walk along the beach or around the headland and rock pools, as well for a coffee on the beach after a surf. A bit further afield and you can be sand-boarding amongst the spectacular sahara like dunes, golfing, hiking or doing a range of other activities but seriously, you want want to go far - this apartment is relaxation heaven!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Getaway....... I spent a week end at One Mile Escape with my four children. The apartment was in a fantastic location with views of the beach and the hinterland - which made the it very easy to sit around and chill out and enjoy the view. The pool was a real attraction for the kids. The rooms were well presented and clean. The apartment was a short drive (or ride) to Nelsons Bay but sufficiently out of the way to allow serenity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We had a fabulous time at One Mile Escape - if only we lived closer we would rent this property more regularly. It is most unusual that photos do not do justice to the actual property, but this is the case here - the property finish is very high, the kitchen has everything the exacting chef will need, the comfort and detail is excellent and the views and sunsets to die for. What an amazing vista! We were spellbound. The infinity pool, although intended to be shared, was ours alone and you could not wish for more. We loved it. We can't wait to return...... Jeannie

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved the place. Loved how it had no common walls. The kids loved the beach track which only took five minutes to walk to the beach. The beach was beautiful; and so was the view. We had hours of fund in the pool with heated spa also. We will definitely be back.
