Thank you for your kind words Yang. Please note the location is why I write in the introduction
Walking into town is possible, even I own a car i do it several times a week. It doesnt take that long (probably 20- 25 minutes to the water, slightly longer to the Casino and Reef Terminal) but I can imagine it will get old quickly if staying for a longer time. That's about a ten dollar cab, depending on where exactly you're going. There is a bus outside that is one stop to town.... That should give you an idea of the distance, one stop.
Please guys, you know yourselves better than i know you, if that is a far distance for you, maybe you would prefer staying somewhere that is closer than 1.5km to the water and beach and 2.4km to the Reef Fleet Terminal (less if you cut through the shopping centre). If that is a far distance for you you should consider that when choosing where to stay.
I think the location is fine, I'm hardly a health-nut and i walk it, but location from CBD is the one thing that people mark down in the reviews
I am not sure how to write that more clearly.
