If you want the perfect peaceful holiday on a budget this is the place to be, on arrival Ellen immediatly made us feel relaxed. When showed to our apartment we were pleasantly suprised at the size and the cleanliness. The apartment had everything we needed, including a washing machine and dryer in the bathroom. When the toaster failed to work... 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

It has all the necessary amenites to get by (microwave, washer, dryer etc). we paid under $100aud per night which was outstanding value for money considering most motels charge around 120 so you won't find...

We were delighted at the natural flora and fauna that sourounded the resort... More

My wife and I have just returned from a fantastic 8 day holiday in Cairns. We did some research and looked at many hotels and resorts in the area. We finally choose the Half Moon Bay Resort after reading a few of the reviews on TripAdvisor and it was a central point for the trips we had planned to do.... More

It is always disappointing to receive unfavourable reviews from our guests. As noted by this response our guest was influenced by some great reviews of Half Moon Bay Resort on Tripadvisor. The resort is located close to facilities, is reasonably priced, the apartments are clean and well appointed. We are directly opposite the scenic Half Moon Bay golf course, a... More
