The facilities where all (own room, bathroom, kitchen, community kitchen, lounge and toilett) very clean.

This hostel is a bit further out of central airlie but there are some shops next to it for food and drinks. The cabins are nice with big kitchens and bathrooms. Single beds made a welcome change from bunk beds. There was a lovely common area with fast wifi, kitchen, books, TV and some really cute dogs running around. Would... More

We loved this property. The cabins are adorable and have everything you need inside! They are currently upgrading a lot of the cabins as well. The walk into Airlie Beach is so beautiful and the sunset along the boardwalk is even better. I can also say for sure that our cabin was the cleanest place we've stayed across Australia. They...

The owners are great people. They were always around to help and answer questions. The cabins are clean and equipped with all you need for a relaxing stay. We stayed here 4 nights to rest and slept 9-10 hours with windows open, without disturbance even once. One of my best stays ever!

Really nice place! calm, relaxing, out of the way from the party goers...but you can still party and stagger back safely, too.

We stayed at Bush village for 3 nights in March. We had one of the private cabins which is their most expensive option at $90/night, and it was well worth it.

Thank you for your review. You have described what we are aiming to achieve. Yes, the ants can be a problem as they are up & down the east coast of Australia. We do have a laundry on site so our guests don't need to lug their laundry around. Thank you for choosing the Bush Village for your stay. More

Thank you for your review. We try very hard to keep our costs low so we appreciate your comment.
