Rated 4 out of 5 by from A beaut stay in Fingal Bay. The apartment was spacious and comfortable and in a good position. Fingal Bay itself is a lovely quiet place in June. Possums is close to the walking/cycling path that goes to Nelson Bay. The cooking implements were basic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful clean apartment. My husband & I enjoyed our weekend away. The photos are a true indication of a very clean & beautifully put together apartment. The only complaint we have is that the bedding is very hard & uncomfortable which caused us to both wake up with very sore backs. I would of loved to see more comfortable lounges & bedding as we planned to stay in the apartment & get some much needed r&r.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clean The dishwasher full of dirty dishes didn't detract from a very good holiday in this well-appointed unit in a nice location. The frig door bottle-shelf is broken/missing, and the double bed was too soggy for our liking. Apart from the frig, the kitchen had excellent appliances. The balcony with a barbeque was a definite plus too.
