Beware when booking Tradewinds!
We stayed at Tradewinds in December 2019, which was fine. However the booking for January 2020 (which I paid for in July 2019) was changed by ‘someone’ and we were put into an awful place (Whispering Coral) for 1 night then another place (Seachange) for 2 nights, without any consideration of what we wanted. Very unsatisfactory! In future I will not book & pay for any accommodation in advance!

My stay here was 12 days and I loved every day of it. Beautiful view. I had a room close to the entrance which was helpful as I am unable to walk a long distance. My apartment was clean and neat. Really enjoyed my stay here.

Very accomodating
Was thrown into this motel at the last minute due to failed Wotif/Expedia bookings. The owner has been very helpful due to my bookings being a moving target. The staff have also moved around me during a difficult time. The property is outside the central city which makes the climate a lot more livable

Central but private
A lovely setting with a pool and attractive gardens. The units are cool, clean,very roomy and have great kitchens. It's easy to walk to town and a 500Vt ride home. The only downside is the noise in the morning; roosters, dogs, traffic and people as it is in suburbia. Excellent value for money and we would definitely stay here again.
