We had a three person studio, which consisted of a double bedroom, open to a room with a bed, sofa, table, tv and kitchenette area (microwave/kettle/fridge), and a bathroom. Everything clean and in good working order. There is a large kitchen area by the pool with all cooking facilities (oven.hob,barbecue) and utensils and even some condiments provided free to use,...

again I find myself wanting a three-and-a-half button. Its in a great location, just around the corner from all the eateries and shops on Macrossan Street, and a ten minute walk at most from the marina for your cruise to the reef. We had a three person room which is always a bit squishy and stayed for three nights, and... More

Once again an excellent stay. Great rooms - both for doubles and families - (our granddaughter and her family also stayed for two weeks and loved it). Camp kitchen is excellent for those who do not want to eat out always. Friendly staff who make you feel at home.

The staff were friendly, welcoming and very helpful. It was a perfect location for our stay and the facilities were great. Their outdoor kitchen is well equipped, and there is a good selection of DVDs for hire. We would happily stay here again.

We are pleased you enjoyed your short stay with us and we thank you for your review of our property. Yes, the guest's kitchen is so popular with our guests and the added bonus is the condiments that are in the pantry. So, a short stroll to the supermarket for some food is all that is needed. More

When we arrived we were met by Lillian and then her son Bernie. A more friendly welcoming we could not have got!!! They were both very helpful and full of advice for our stay. Bernie went beyond to sort out our tour up to the Daintree. Saved us lots of looking around. The room was very clean with very comfortable... More

We stayed for ten days and couldn't fault the pleasant, bright, clean, roomy unit. John is a builder and every time he upgrades or refurbishes he's chosen quality fittings, and everything WORKS. Wifi in the room or by the pool. No foxtel, but a new flat screen TV. Lilian and John and Bernie are extraordinary hosts and nothing is too... More

Clean room and bathroom but really dirty dishes and glasses, we had to clean them before using. Table sets were disgusting. Wifi did not work in our room. After we asked what was wrong we were told not to complain as it was for free so we had no right to expect a working wifi. Pretty expensive for what it... More
