What is the difference between Standard and Water View Apartments?

The standard apartments are located in the Osprey Building which is nestled behind the other 4 buildings.  The apartment is exactly the same in appearance and fit out.  This building is not located on the waters’ edge but has a roof top Pool deck and BBQ area for guests to use.  A great option for those who are watching their pennies and are happy to utilise the views from the outdoor areas.

Which is better? Ocean view or Harbour View?

We prefer to call all of the apartments on the water’s edge “water View” simply because we are indeed surrounded by ocean.  Views from Bounty and Bellona face Townsville with a vast expanse of ocean in between.  A strong South Easter is common on Balconies in these buildings and they get limited sun after noon.

The apartments in the 2 Ashmore buildings face both Townsville and the entrance to the Harbour overlooking Nelly Bay Beach.  These apartments get more sunshine and are sheltered from the strong South Easterly winds. Our guests often prefer the activity of the ferries, sail boats leaving the Marina and kite surfers to watch from their balcony.
