Visited last year while visiting friends and relatives. Great location, across the road from the Golf Course, the Boat Club is also within walking distance, however they also offer a courtesy bus. Accommodation itself was spotless and included everything you would expect. Very friendly manager. Highly recommended.

We were limited in our choices for an exchange for our RCI vacation points, and this seemed like a good location for exploring the Cairns area for a week, and it worked for that. The room was comfortable and clean, and having laundry facilities in the room was very convenient. It turned out not to be much of a "resort",... More

We only spent 1 night but wished it was more. The unit was lovely with everything including cooking facilities, washing machine n dryer. It was clean n compact and modernly decorated.The location was quiet and peaceful but still close enough to nearby attractions. The manager was genuinely friendly and very helpful. We would definately recommend this property for any length... More

Spent 7 days here & Ellen was a saviour. Nothing was too much trouble for her & she had a great knowledge of the area. All her suggestions were excellent. The apartment was spotless, had everything we needed including a washer drier. As we had been travelling in Oz for a few weeks we had built up a fair bit... More

We went 18 days in Australia. We went to Sydney, we camped in Alice Spring and Darwin and finished in Cairns in Half Moon Bay resort. We were so well welcomed by Helen, our room was perfect, we had a small kitchen, but so clean with everything we needed. What I really liked was the service and the cleanliness. What... More

My sister and I rented two bicycles at the hotel. It's good for going to the supermarket if you don't drive. Good to go around the small town leisurely. We did the laundry in our room. A small problem is there are ants in the kitchen and bathroom. There is a small barbecue stove, and we used it in the... More

We spent our first night in Oz at the Half Moon Bay and I wish we'd stayed longer. Ellen and Rick, the owners, could not do enough for us. Even before we arrived they were great at providing information via email and remained just as helpful when we were there, helping to arrange transport on to our next destination. The... More

Very nice apartments with lovely pool. Everything we needed for our 4 day stay. Yes, the property is on the flight path but we were not bothered at all by noise. I would advise that you need a car if staying here, as there is not very much going on in Yorkey's Knob itself and it's quite a walk to... More
