Perfect place to stay on the Lakes

From Georgi

What a beautiful weekend! Perfect weather and having the deck out the front of our apartment was magical – we sat and enjoyed the view all weekend. We will definitely be back.

Great Outlook

From Karen

The apartment was kept immaculately clean, and the views could not be matched. The greatest highlight was warm afternoon sunlight streaming beautifully in and heating up the apartment in winter.

Pristine Waterside Apartment

From Barry & Jenny

From the moment we walked through the door and saw the awesome view, we fell in love with Captains Cove! We were ecstatic to find the place even better than the photos.

From 'A Big Bloke Aborad'

We stayed in one of the waterfront apartments and, as the name suggests, they are literally on the water – walk out the back door and you have a lovely water vista within the Paynesville canals!

We'll be back

From Chido

Beautiful place, clean, comfortable with beautiful views. The kids enjoyed playing on the basketball court and the swimming pool. Tamara, Tania and team were friendly and quick to respond. We will definitely stay here again.

Superb Location

From GPS Electrical Services

Our employee's stay at the Captains Cove Waterfront Apartments was terrific! It was in a superb location, had fantastic amenities, and the host went above and beyond to ensure we had a great time.

Beautiful Surrounds

From Gini

A fabulous place to go for a quiet getaway. Beautiful surrounds and great places to eat. The facilities in house are also very good if you want to cook you own, with inside or outside dining. Plenty of space for six adults and the beds were very comfortable. Highly recommend.

A beautiful oasis

From Nicole

A beautiful oasis with such a relaxing and calming atmosphere. Apartments are very clean, spacious, modern and well appointed, and within a 5-10min walk of shops. It really was a home away from home. Can't wait to return.

Loved Every Minute

Immaculate accommodation with everything you need, right on the waterfront. The view is stunning from each floor of the apartment and the accommodation itself is inviting and well maintained. We loved every minute of our stay and will definitely be back.

Perfect for Relaxing

From Jod

It is really a wonderful place to be in! Super clean, comfortable beds, well-prepared kitchen, and very nice view either from the up bedroom or from the living room. Really recommend it to anyone who wants to spend time relaxing and enjoying.

A Beautiful Place

From Belinda

Beautiful place to stay and relax. Captains Cove is such a beautiful place to relax and unwind away from the hustle and bustle. The waterfront apartments are nice and clean with everything you need. With the shops and cafes walking distance from here it’s the best place to stay. I’ve been coming here for the last 3 years to stay for a week of rest and I love it.
