One and two bedroom apartments on beautiful Tugun Beach. Great beach view from every apartment. Pool and barbecue right on the beachfront. The building is getting quite old, but is well maintained. Some apartments have been renovated. All apartments are different, some better than others. Great tennis court at the front of the property.

The oceanfront view was fantastic. The Units are within walking distance of Tugun shops including an IGA supermarket and many cafés and restaurants. The Unit, itself, has everything you need in terms of crockery and cutlery. There is an oven, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and clothes dryer. The Unit needed general maintenance and updating. There were chips around the doorways,...

I've been visiting SS for years but never reviewed it before. Having just returned from our most recent visit I thought I would put pen to iPad. The accessibility to the beach, views and location are what you're paying for and they never disappoint. The renovated pool and back grassed area are well maintained and practical. The new lifts are...

We stayed in Unit 2 which was totally disappointing. Both toilets smelt of urine, the shower in the ensuite stopped working for three days. There was only two teaspoons and two bread plates. Some of the walls have holes in them. The unit is extremely noisy - coming from every unit surrounding it. Who ever owns this unit start listening...
