    The owner ( never asked his name) is a super friendly fit who seems to do everything round the place from early o clock pick ups to late kitchen cleans. Top marks for this guy. ..a great stop between Airlie and Hervey :)

    It was just perfect, in bungalow. We arrived at midnight and everything was ready for us. We took a double room and there was bathroom inside very clean. It very close to the bus stop to go to great keppel island and the staff was very friendly.

    Barbara l. (July 2013)

    Cabin my son and I stayed in was unexpected. Usually private rooms are in a building, but enjoyed the privacy. Table and chairs outside the cabin in the sun for breakfast, couldn't be better.
